    Well, using the default set-up and taking the car to Kansai (P session with newly green track) as you suggested, I found the car incredibly pleasant to drive. It is not one of the vehicles in the game that has "heavy FFB" (like the Group A); the rear-end is planted in all situations where you would want it or need it to be (over-cooking T1 and hitting the curbs; through the esses; Spoon curve; flat through 130R); no braking issues...overall one of the best formula cars in the game based on what I have driven lately (many have issues still).

    I have no idea if your expectation for lap time is plausible given the latest physics and live track changes. We never know how well the AI are calibrated, but they are nowhere near 1:37's.

    Could you just try going in a normal P session (I had 19 AI) to see if there is any difference at your end? Maybe there is something affecting the TT cars or environment? If you say the P session car is as you describe above, I will then try TT here to see if I can notice any difference. But based on driving it twice in the last two days, the F-Classic G3M1 is definitely one of my favourite historic open-wheelers in AMS 2!

    What with the current quality level of the latest version, and fingers firmly crossed regarding the custom championship tool, March could just be the time I start driving AMS2 more than AMS1 :)

    I am so hoping we can edit driver names and parameters to create custom rosters for our championships..... please, please please.... :)

    There is a misunderstanding:I did not mention the laptimes of the AI in this class, but just mine. Before and after the update. Model 1 car behaves different now. Managed times about hight 1.36.xx before in TT (which by now is the TT record with this model I guess) and, with fuel consumption, low 1.37.xx in test day/ single races. After latest update, my best time in practice and races is an 1.37.5, much slower than before. In TT I failed to come near my best time, too.
    There were changes in torque curve and brake bias on this car, as Renato stated within the notes. Car is still nice to drive, but not as fun and fast than before.
    Another thing he stated in the TT - thread:
    "We found one source of small grip degradation in TT vs v1.1.0.5, relates to the reduced baseline grip on a green track - this will be rectified for tomorrow´s hotfix."

    So, something went wrong with track conditions in TT.

    The tires feel like they do not have any tire slip angle. It is either grip or it slips. The 2020 cars are much better than in 2019 and 2018.

    And they felt muted, less feedback than what used to be in AC.

    In terms of GT3, I prefer R3E and rF2 ones the most. Don't like ACC one much. AMS2 is pretty good but i think other cars are more fun in AMS2.

    Regarding the "Historic track pack" does anyone know if Snetterton will get a historic variant?
    I found this 1967 version of Snetterton for AC a while back and even though is not that good, quality wise, with slower cars due to the vegetation that makes the corners blind and the simple layout is really enjoyable to drive and with all the oldies objescts around the track is kinda unique.
    It would be a great addition to AMS2.

    As I understood the official announcement of comming historic tracks then most of them (all?) would be historic versions of tracks allready in AMS2.

    If so, :D what I hope as well :D, then it is understandable why it takes longer than expected (wasn't it for Nov. 2020 update?).
    But I have never heard that historic tracks / layouts from Suzuka, Snetterton, BrandsHatch, Monaco, or most brasilian tracks and others are planned, but Jerez, Estoril, Spa, Nurburgring, Kyalami were announced definitely.
    Good things will take a while, hopefully not toooooo long so that I am still alive to enjoy ;)
