Agreed !! :lol:

But... I think his claim is valid, as i personally hate the stock Caterham SP300R - because it is so jumpy in the corners if you don't watch over it like hawk, but when it gets stiff springs and full downforce it becomes a different weapon altogether ;)

But I think the Caterham SP300R is well known in the Grid community for it's terminal oversteer ... of which it is mostly unrecoverable :shifty:

Yes, the Caterham-Lola SP300R can take you by surprise. You need to be aware when you drive it, and know when it tries to bite. When you own one, you can adjust a lot with diff, suspension and downforce settings. But it can still surprise you.

The Caterham "party" at Okutama was a big mess. Driving the "default" Cat against Ai on very hard was insane. It took me at least 20 restarts before i could get past them and get platinum.

But i like that car. It is no easy drive but rewarding when you get it right.

From Loore:
Just a heads up but tomorrow is my last day in the office for two weeks. It's been non-stop since we announced Autosport so I'm off to recharge my batteries and get a bit of rest :)

That said, if there's anything you want me to raise with the team before I go please ensure you let me know by tomorrow.

Current Updates
We are currently working with Valve to get VAC integrated into Autosport [PC Only]
PC Patch is currently in QA for testing, it includes playlist changes and reduced repair costs
Next DLC is the Sprint pack
The team are currently looking into the AI and the aggression levels
Team are looking into the upgrades issue you raised
Level 1 cars - team are working on
Repair costs - these will be lower in the next patch
RaceNet Challenge awards not always given - fixed in an upcoming patch
Flashbacks online - we're lowering it from 5 down to 3 as standard for playlists
Rear View Mirror - hoping to see some movement on this shortly
We're planning to make changes to the multiplayer matchmaking, this will be for a test period of time. The aim is to reduce the amount of "no lobbies available" messages.

I'll see you in two weeks :)

Valve anti cheat rocks. Hopefully that will deal with some nasty cheaters. 8-)

Enjoy your holiday Loore, but before you go, can you give us a yes or no answer if text chat will be in the next patch?
At this time, no. I'm hoping it will make it into a future patch but it's unlikely at this time, sorry.

This is second patch for GAS, if Codies not taking the time to add text chat now, doubt it will happen. We might see a 3rd PC patch some day, then I think that will be it for patches. Codemasters will move on to working on DIRT 4.
