BMW V12 LMR Race Car 1999My first race car tune! I had this car in my garage with 0 miles on it for a little while now when someone asked me to tune it. I accepted the challenge and have created a serious racer. I used racing medium tires for this because I was asked to, but I'm sure racing soft will be the same just a bit better. I tuned it for Sarthe, but it should work anywhere. I also really like how the pictures came out, but wish I didn't crash in the first 2 seconds of that race and now have a huge scuff mark on the front lol.

It was very tail happy and skidded everywhere when I first started testing and difficult to lay down any power without it going crazy and spinning out. I adjusted the springs to where it would stay straight, but the smallest amount of gas and it still went nuts. After more work on the LSD this car is now a beast. It is not the fastest race car out there, but its basically a 1:1 power to weight ratio and virtually 50/50 weight balance which makes it a lot easier to control than some others. Now it is still a race car so don't be a fool and slam on the gas out of the corners. You will end up burning away the tires and/or spin out so be easy on the gas and there will be no problems.
