More information soon
Mercedes vs viper vs Aston zagato thingy
All between 735 and 750 ish PI
4wd, slicks and over 550 bhp.
All tuned to achieve similar lap times. 1 car faster than others but has better cornering. 1 has seemingly better acceleration but more difficult on the brakes............you takes the choice and live or die by it
But careful as the very next track it might have been the best choice
5% bhp drop in 2nd race for top 3 mixing it up.
Aston zagoto @ 743PI
Merc CLK GTR @ 751PI
Viper SRT10 ACR @ 741PI

Test Silverstone International, Buggati, Indy GP, Sebring and Rd Atlanta.
Best way i found was to use free play race with average AI so you can just get some race laps unhindered. Top speed at end of straights before braking, fastest lap vs average lap and overall/total race time. Of course each will prefer the way a certain car behaves or doesnt behave, overall i found them equal out across the tracks quite well. Example the CLK is the fastest in a straightline just about but has less grip but more than you might think. The Dodge ACR thing is slowest but quite grippy........anyways try out
The Viper seems slower on a long straight with the AI gaining quicker then when in the Aston. But the Viper made up for it in the corners leading to slightly quicker lap times. But the ass end of the Aston looks better with the diffuser and fat exhausts lol
24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence?
Tried the cars out on a couple of tracks and ran each 3 times outlap and one flying lap
Le Mans Bugatti
Clk GTR 1:46.435 total 3:38.987
Aston. 1:47.632 total 3:39.747
Viper. 1:45.355 total 3:34.829
Clk GTR 2:15.078 total 4:35.591
Aston. 2:16.318 total 4:38.879
Viper. 2:14.330 total 4:34.197
The clk feels much quicker than the others but the viper is so planted ,found the Aston to be the loosest of the three but maybe down to my driving style/ability
All three tunes feel pretty good so hats off to you John

This is true, but the Viper isn't a DLC car (unlike the other two). Forza did let me download the game last night though and the Viper does feel nicely balanced. I do like the way you can back it into a corner so easily, just need to get used to the way that 4WD is inconsistent in what it does when you apply the power on corner exit.
Guessed as much from the way you can make the rear break traction if you push it. It's more to do with the way Forza implements 4WD (as we have mentioned back in the days of FM4) than something we can influence. Just up to me to get used to the car so I know what it's going to do, that's all.
V2 tunes of the Aston and Merc up on share. Aston better of the line with shortened 1st to 3rd gears and slight overall lower final. Merc a little less 'lairy' with more rear wing and lower diff settings (only slightly).
