Ok, I'll bite.

Does the back end slide out too much going into the corners or does it seem like a snow plow and just run into them without being able to turn?

If it's the first then try increasing the rear sway bar size (if you can) and if it's the second, try decreasing the rear sway bar size.

snow plow. changed both sway bars(lowest fr/highest rear). didn't do much. even when i'm on the grass/dirt(often!), front wheels really won't turn to move. tires won't do much, will they? running the street s3(soft).

I believe you want a smaller size in the rear if you are suffering from oversteer. Change that. Tires will also make a difference but the oversteer problem is the cause.

mine sucks at turning too, plows like it's friggin pushing snow. The power is good but I wish it handled better. If anyone had a formula for great handling/braking on that car Id drive it more, otherwise it sits in the garage and looks pretty (virtually) :)

the trick to using the GT is to NOT do any weight reduction... yeah, it slows you down a little, but it makes the car a hell of a lot easier to control at 200+mph

can't you adjust the downforce on it? i do that on gt3 when i get a squirrly car, if you can, max it out front and rear, it'll cut down on top speed, but top speed isn't everything, being able to get the hell out of the curves faster is where it is at....;)

I did all the weight reduction too. I spose you could do the weight balancing as heavy as possible or something, then add a gross looking ricer wing for downforce

so you can't adjust the downforce without adding the jgtcc wing?

not on most of the cars in that game. You need to buy the stupid thing to gain adjustability.

buy it then, no sense in having a car that you can't control, downforce, traction, and proper turning technics are what get you through the curves, fast, if you don't have enough downforce you will need to slow way down to take the twisties, if not, you get to go rally racing off road.

You guys are actually getting understeer? Do you have driving aids turned on or what? When I got mine, oversteer was a huge problem. If I even touched the throttle during a turn, it was spinsville. I had to add some weight to the front of the car. It'll still get loose easily on hills. I think it's just a car you have to get used to driving. It's my favorite so far though.

yea the gt is hard for me to control too but i got nasty oversteer. if i even think about touching the throttle in a turn its an instant 180*. the $50,000 racing tires helped though.

the viper is much easier to drive (with the super soft racing tires) and more powerful at 1032 hp. it was the first car i bought and its still one of my favorites and i got 48 cars.
