Have 1 car we test and get all the bugs worked out for each class, like we did with the GTC. Once we get it about perfect, then change the bodies and engine sounds to reflect all the cars in the series. The variation in the cars will come from front/rear weight, where a front engine car can have no more weight towards the back than 50%, mid/rear engine no more weight than 50% towards the front. Then change the RPM and torque power bands to reflect the real cars, so you'll have higher revs on some, lower revs on others, but every car would have same horspower, weight, tire grip, and aerodynamics. I think there still would some variation in the cars and which tracks they will be better at, but maybe not as much as we're hoping for. Just an idea to get all the cars more equal and maybe for some better racing where nobody feels the other guy has a huge advantage with a different car.
Exactly my thoughts Paul. Paul's method would be the fastest with less work adjusting all cars every time and fewer updates.
Sorry, couldn't join testing, life's thrown few projects at me, not much time for anything atm.
