Lotus 25 Championship

It did have a Soviet engine, and I think some of the other cars in that series were from the USSR, and they raced in the USSR, so it is understandable.

Yes! Or the Porsche 917 and Ford GT40

I also like those old soviet F3 cars: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/avia-ae2.11850/

there was the Metalex MTX in SRS some months ago http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/...-03.11851/

it was pretty fun, and good for newbies.

it become even better at my eyes after knowing how that was made:

Gearbox from this 

Zapo 968 Top Gear if the video doesn't work



"technically a Porsche 911"

Sospension from this

Axle from this

Sterring from this

then add some metal tubes for Chassis and some Glass Fiber for Body 


and the result is a very fun car.

I tried to practice at Monza yesterday and had to turn down FFB to 0 before the sopraelevata (banked) curves, they are so bumpy that my trusty old G27 sounds like it falls apart immediately.

Just out of curiosity, how do you guys deal with that? Is there a button to temporarily disable FFB? Does anyone have a direct drive wheel that works better (does not wake up everyone)?

I let ffb clip app do the job, that's ok with my crappy Force PRO. Banked curves are bumpy indeed and i need to fight against a bit but it's part of the sim.

Me, I just go to the gym.

But yes, you should try FFB clip. It lets you, among other things, adjust the power of the FFB car by car.

What I find interesting about the Lotus 25 is that you can actually go faster if you drift the corner rather than go about it the traditional way. A lot of fun although repeating it lap after lap is a bit hard.

Raced at Monza yesterday and ended my race early because I brushed the armco and destroyed the suspension. So disappointing.

Very fun car to drive. Every lap is a challenge, especially the first corner, it's all about bravery, it's stressful enough on a computer, I can't imagine how scary it must have been IRL. I'm still slow (2.48) but I'm gaining a few tenths every race and I finally don't go out at the Parabolica every single lap Big Grin

That's my favourite bit about cars like this, it means you can have a bit of a drift and actually be competitive Big Grin

Until wings and slicks came around, that's how they drove every race car. Modern racing is just the understeer olympics.

Haha, good answer. I do have FFBclip, my question was more related to the awful noise the G27 makes through these turns when any amount of FFB larger than 10 is set.
