Kinda twitchy and fast. Strikes me as more of a special event car than doing a whole season in one. Not very drop-in friendly.

It races pretty well. There are a sh*t ton of paint jobs for it too. The physics isn't totally done well, but still good. And like Tim said: "It's a 917!"

I am having an inkling to ring out the old and ring in the new by bringing back the Le Mans 2.4 (the old) with the 917k the last Sunday of 2019.

Why wait, these cars are great?

It does a couple of goofy things (wheelies at the Mulsanne hump power on or off; I tried equalizing the aero balance with the front and rear wing HDV file edit but that did little or nothing, unlike HGT&TC where it was a fix) and the front suspension feels like it's riding on the bumpstops (checking the HDV file, it is actually seems to be with zero as the parameter for bump travel) but it drives well enough, easier than the competitive rF1 HGT&TC GT40s with much more controllable braking, better feedback from the steering wheel and recoverable slides.

The Annual Endurance Series fell out of favor due to low car count and those that raced through the night were rough on the eyes of some but the 2 to 2.4 hour races led to the most epic and memorable races in Efnet history, were my favorites and now that we are back to mainstream with rF2, a probable way to get new drivers.

If we did them again, we'd have OPTIONAL driver changes and if there are enough drivers, we could do multiclass with another appropriate car.

Under 4:00 @ Le Mans 1991-96...
