Hi guys, after driving the Ferrari 712M the last few days at the Targa Track in Training Mode with
Car Type selected Can Am with 680BHP. Wondered about going to Advanced Trainer option. So it seems
to run good with this option. I'm looking for a setting more in the lines of what the WSC rules
were for the 1971 or 1972 Targa Florio. Does anyone here know what BHP drops to with the
Advanced Trainer cars for the Can Am Cars ? Thanks.

:up:

Will we someday be able to run a  full Targa Field of Can Am cars with these options for lower horsepower
engines ?

Using the Targa Trainer I just checked out top speeds with default settings for the Ferrari 712M on the long
Buonfornello straight.

Can Am - 209 MPH
Advanced Trainer -188 MPH

Look in GPL Setup Manager.  If you switch between the classes of car CA, AT or BT, the power curve shows the HP.

Ferrari 712M

CA - ~680 hp
AT - ~450 hp
BT - ~320 hp

Thanks Bob . You are the answer man ! So using the Ferrari 712M in Advanced Trainer Mode is somewhat
comparable to the Ferrari 312PB of 1972 as far as Horsepower.

312PB = 460 BHP
712M  Advanced Trainer = 450 BHP

Maybe someday a talented editor could use the Can Am as a base for 1972 WSC Carset / Skins
with Advanced Trainer physics of the Can Am for the Sportscars ? :think:

The cars were somewhat similar in appearance with the Sportscars open cockpits
and flat wedge shapes like the Can Am we have in G.P.L.

Tried the Shadow in Advanced Trainer mode and had great fun. Thanks for the tip!
