Attached File  ferrari_250_maybe.zip   848bytes   20 downloadsHi Guys---the ferrari 250 S-O-B----lol

As Luke says to Hans Solo, " I'm a pretty good pilot too"

However the Ferrari 250 is the snakiest, shakyist piece of Italian art that I have ever driven. I have got asetup that just about controls it but if someone who is a better setup guy than me could try it and see what can be done----great.

Enzo is sending me e-mails from Heaven complaining about the damage I inflict on his poor car. He also says the spaghetti up there is not as good as Luigi's in Modena.  But that's another story---lol

My friend and I were discussing the handling and the closet comparison is the TVR in GTL----which is a real tail swingin terror. Gauranteed to cause shingles,headaches andthe heartbreak of psoriasis. :hat-tip:

this was not a complaint about the car---the car is lovely----just that someone might have an idea about what's best in the settings department.  The 275 is much more stable which I guess makes some sense as it's a longer wheelbase.

Boy---I'm getting tired of talking to myself---lol

However--Now have developed much better setup and seemed to have tamed the beast--1 38 1 at Mosport 67-----this was a wild , bumpy scary lap but felt relatively in control. Still think the physics need tweaking on this car for version 3 but-hey---what do I know.

Camber at 7 seems to make it manageable. :iconcur:  :hat-tip:  :thumbup:

Hope this helps someone

I'm still here Dragon!  I'll give your revised Ferrari set up a try.  You haven't done any for the GT40 MKI have you?
