Dude, I have that car an dI think it overstears alot. But then again I run with lots of downforce, MAX HP output and supersoft tires in all races where there is no tire wear.

GT2/3, right?

To reduce oversteer on a mid-engined car, simply increase rear downforce, reduce front downforce, and add some rear toe-out. The toe-out will help the oversteer become a bit more predictable and countersteerable even with maximized power. Of course, this isn't going to do anything when applying full throttle mid-turn in a hairpin. You still need to be cautious and gradually apply power.

O yeah, I know how to fix it. And careful throttle control is a must. I race gas powered RC cars since I'm only 13. The same princepals apply to them and as you may or may not know the engines in the RCs I race are always in the back. And th eversteer is predictable and I find it useful sometimes. I can control it VERY easily. I was just commenting on it but I don't have any problems. I can keep it from oversteering easily but thanks for the tips anyway. And yes I do have GT3.

I saw Le Mans 98' race and saw the R390's doing some laps, they sound well ok - but thats not the kick in the pants, I never got one picture of the R390, but I like the road car version, both 97' and 98', and I like blue better.

A beautiful shot of a beautiful machine:



1997 homologation special R390. A million bucks well spent.
