    Nah, it has to much horsepower to be a GT4 class. Max I've seen is about 420HP. The Race variant has 700HP, 777HP if you up the rev limiter. I would guess it's a GT3 or GT2 but I'm not sure.

    None really, just a track focused car.

    GTRX wing is a full on hillclimb wing, GTT and GTC wings are way less aggressive and GTXX wing is supposed to be similar to GTC, but more flashy looking.

    Realistically the GTXX would probably have more downforce than GTC though, ot at least some side stabilization stuff to prevent spinning out, the looks have to affect the actual behavior, not sure how it works though, can you explain in more detail?

    Actually, just double checked and it does seem like the GTXX wing isn't quite right. I guess it must have slipped somewhere through the release rush.

    I just realized that this thing doesn't have a clad undertray in the rear for some reason. The front and middle of the car does but the engine just left open from underneath.. why?

    Behold... the fastest quarter mile time I've achieved in BeamNG (with no mods involved)
    2022-06-17.png
    My previous best was like 6.87 with the Moonhawk, and that took countless passes and tuning to make that happen. It only took me one attempt with the tune up i put in the Scintilla to go this fast...

    EDIT: I have just broken into the 6.7s

    EDIT 2: ok i almost completely skipped the 6.6s. got a 6.608 then a 6.596 at 220 mph

    the front grip of the car is very poor
    I tried a few different combinations but the front downforce is low

    My suggestion is to set the automatic countersteer assist to 130%, and when the vehicle snaps, release the controller stick, or reduce steering input to only a tiny into the turn, do not apply opposite steering in your controller.

    After more practice driving I can say this car handles way better than the sbr4 and is very fast and controlled.

    I think the reason people struggle with understeer is that they are turning to sharp in corners. They are turning the front tires full lock which causes any car to plow into a corner. Beamng needs to implement a thing like forza where it automatically adjusts the amount of steering through a corner which would help controller players a ton.

    The fact the drift esc mode can make a mid engine rwd 650 horsepower super car drift even easier than a front engine rwd car like the 200 BX shows how amazing the ESC system on this car is. you just use weight transfer to un settle the car and get the rear to rotate, then just chuck it in and keep your foot planted and the computer systems keep the car in perfect control as if its AWD. Amazing. it is kindahard to hold long drifts though and you cant transfer slides like with a proper front engine rwd car. Using a Logitech g27 1:1 steering with the oversteer assist setting turned off so there’s no oversteer assist at play here or in my previous clips. Just a hint of skill and the ESC doing it’s job and keeping the car stable.

    Just did a bunch of tests for the Scintilla's downforce with various wings, comparing it to cars that have the same wing. Here's the results.

    Is this vehicle overpowered? I see the tires have different names(All-seasion/Sport 2P) rather than generic "AD82T" tires (Standard/Sport/Race), Are they have excessive friction? Such as Sport tires in this vehicle have the same friction as the Race tires on Pessima?

    I would expect this to be the case, since it's WAY faster than a normal car but handles equally good, maybe better than one. Judging by the files, the all season ones are the equivalents of sport tires on normal cars, and the higher end ones have higher peak grip.
