We will be using the 2016 indy lights for season 4.
The GP server has just been set up with this car, if everything is correct you can simply connect to the server and any missing file will be downloaded.
Give the car a go and let us know what you think.

The car feels nice in general. Very responsive car. In some ways, it reminds me of the GP3 car from season 2, not sure why exactly.

Maybe it's lacking a bit of grip, which isn't a problem for me but might be for some others.

I also hope that maybe some of the setup options get closed in order to promote close racing. Of course, it's well deserved if you practice hard and are able to gain time by making a good setup, but I prefer having a close race and winning because I was the best driver, not because I had the best setup.

Yes the car is good drivable. But I don't like it, its to slow in my opinion. The gears are strange, because on monza you should need to be in extra long, but then fast is not in the cars dictionarry anymore.
With the wings at 10 10 the car is undrivable in the fast corners at 10 20 it was possible. Top speed with gear on long was just over 270
Thats almost the same top speed you can get with the magane I just did a 1-44 with the car on monza which is the same time the fastest people did in quali with the megane.
Maybe with a good set up it can go a liitle faster but i doubt it will be more then 5 sec

In my opinion a GP car should be at least 20 sec faster (easely) then a megane to make it fun.
But hey thats just my opinion.

The intention is to keep the setup options limited,only crucial things like springs, wings tire pressure and so on, we want people to focus on racing and not having to spend 2 weeks on setting up the car.
Also if more people agree with the car being too slow, we can always add some power to it ;)

Rienk, the F1 2017 in real life only did 1.23 on Monza in the race, which is about 20 secs faster than the Megane laps. So if you want them to go even faster than that, that's madness :P

But yeah, I would agree it feels a bit slow. To be driving at the pace of Meganes is not what we want probably, but we need to watch out that it doesn't become difficult to drive.

Finally, the difficult thing about locking setup options is that for example the Fast & Slow Bump/Rebound do not work on specific settings on each track. To some people it might not make a difference, but when you come to a track to find out the car handles terrible on the kerbs then you will be talking otherwise. Maybe the number of options needs to be lowered. I think there are about 29 settings for Fast/Slow Bump/Rebound, which can easily be limited to 5, 7 or 9. That allows more control of making the car feel good around every track, while not opening up unnecessary amounts of options.

Either way, as long as it won't be too much about setting up the car it's fine to me.

Did someone already paint the GP car? I have tried to but I can't see the wings in showroom.

Gerrit de Vries is resolving the problem but for now you have to check the car on track. You can use the alternative cams to take a closer look.
