Probably some Japanese cars, or another remake of what we already have
It's about time we had some more proper touring cars, infact there are two that would be good to release around the same time, the Ford and Holden Aussie V8 cars I know some company has made them before but we need someone like Protoform to make them.
They could also do the Seat touring car, the real thing is going well in the BTCC.

I posted quite a bit of info on how to do this a few pages back ... On average you should get 7-10 seconds on a normal preped Cuda.... One that is preped and had all of the little tricks done to it can be anywhere in the 10-18 seconds
anything more than this and you would have had to spin the Sh!t out of the wheels
-Dave
Thanks for the info Dave, I'll try to look back and find those info that you had mentioned..

cheers...

Hi guys,

Just thought i should share the proudest moment i've had so far with the CUDA.

Lapped the entire field in the 19t finial this friday night at the local track

Was looking close going into the finial after only managing 2nd on the grid, i stripped a spur earlier in qualifing and really just didn't drive that well

Although i easily had the fastest car, i just couldn't hook it all together.................... so often the case

Anyway i went into the lead of the finial on lap 2, a wonderful move up the inside into the second corner, there was nothing the leader could do to block me and like a true gentleman he conceeded the corner.There was no looking back after that and at the 3 minute mark i worked out that i'd have to do something really silly to loose the race, settled down and thats when the pace really picked up and i just ran away with it

My racing just seems to get better and better with the CUDA !!

Why would you want to?
It just adds rotating weight, the Cuda gears are strong enough without it.
