    I tried most of the cars for a few laps…

    As always in pCARS2 all tires with a higher sidewall (most cars from before 2000 and especially bias ply ones) have way too much grip and I can’t get my brain to forget how unrealistic/bad this is (especially the tire compound called “Track” for older cars, “Vintage” is a little better, but none of the new Ferrari cars come with that compound as an option).
    Bad tires aside, I think the suspension and setup on the Testarossa seems well done.

    Newer cars:
    Had a discussion with my friend, Dan, on another forum about half a year ago, where all the newer higher power street legal cars have this “pull to one side” “torque-steer-esque” phenomenon under high acceleration from lower speeds. We were talking about the La Ferrari in particular, it’s very extreme there. I think we settled on “we don’t know how the real cars behaves with electronic aids, maybe without computer controlled dampers, anti-roll bars and hybrid-system integrated traction control, pCARS just doesn’t simulate those, maybe without it, that’s exactly how the car would handle”. Most other pCARS2 cars that show this extreme behavior would have traction control IRL.
    Now the Ferrari F40, which doesn’t have any traction aids whatsoever, does the same thing. Also, it has too much grip.

    The F355, the La Ferrari FXX k, F12Tdf… if you put on weaker tires (“Club” or “street” compound)… they drive kinda nice. Still too much grip, when accelerating out of a corner, but really good. Especially from the La Ferrari FXX k, I didn’t expect anything from SMS. But it’s actually really fun to drive.

    Yea, Mugello is nice too, from what I could tell so far.

    But what are your opinions on the Ferrari Essentials Pack?

    Certainly sounds like there’s a lot to get your teeth into in terms of debating the handling. I’ve popped a link to this one our FB page, will be good to get more feedback. The car being drawn to one side is interesting, I’m assuming the chassis were designed for the consistent power output.

    I always enjoy Mugello, so smooth.

    I’ve always found my racing games/sims get low-speed physics very wrong in general.
