I have been having a go with these as a possible "Formula Fordish" series
The are like ultra light darty 911s. If you are good at Porkas, you may be good at these
It took me several laps before I could get round with damage, and had to make very unrealistic
setups so I could drive them. Lots of natural understeer with downshift oversteer, tricky
little blighters  Shocked After a few laps at a few tracks, I am getting to like them.

Please could some others try them out? you can buy one for a crippling 2 pounds sterling.
Let me know what people think?

I tried these at Mid Ohio (I think it was) No idea how competitive I was but they seemed ok to me. It was using these I discovered my brake pot issue as some laps I wasn't accelerating all the way down the back straight. Once I switched to using the clutch pedal as the brake I went 2.5 secs quick and hammered the AI. Easy feat as the AI is on adaptive learning which I assume means they are as pants as you are and will take a lap or 2 to match your times if you suddenly go quicker. I'd not be unhappy doing a series in these (until we do and I find I'm way too slow to be anything other than an accident waiting to happen!)

Of course he is - that's why I tried the cars out. Forgot about it though when I replied earlier  Embarrassed
