Does the lotus 25 share the same physics with the 33 (brm)?

Because in the 1966mod readme file it says each chassis engine combination has individual physics, What is
the lap time differance?

Cheers.

See the GPLRank site > World Records > select the year, and you can see the fastest times at tracks in all cars.

The Lotus 33 BRM, Lotus 33 Climax and Lotus 43 are 1966 cars and have different physics.  But the Lotus 25 is a 1965 mod car.  The World Records at Monaco are:

1965 Lotus 25 - 1:26.007
1966 Lotus 33 BRM - 1:25.814
1966 Lotus 33 Climax - 1:25.624
1966 Lotus 43 - 1:26.257

The 65 mod car is also a Lotus 33 I think, but with a 1.5 litre rather than the 66 mod 2.0 litre engine. In 66 mod the Lotus 33 is heavier as for 66 there was a minimum weight limit and so in 66 spec the car ran heavier, but also had a slightly more powerful engine.

(In 65 Lotus ran both 25 and 33s, but for 65 mod I am pretty sure the graphics are for the 33 and so is the physics).
