Cars may look the same but that doesn't mean they have the same driving characterists. There are small geometry differences that make a big difference. Differences you can't see unless you have a pair of calipers and 1-2 hours to burn.

Tell that to the all of the other team drivers who race asphalt almost exclusively.

It sounds like the car has been every bit as impressive on carpet as it has on asphalt

So true. Most people don't seem to understand this, but all of these cars are different.

I've had pretty all the current touring cars, and I must admit they all drive a little different. The d06 is definitely one of the better ones build wise.

Ok since i cant make my mind up ill be buying both the D06 and the 417v5.we will see which car ill like more. Fyi tested a BD7 over the weekend in a open non prepared black top. Im 50/50 with that car i felt like i could trun a few quick laps but not be consistent with it.
