Version: Simraceway v 28.90 build: 372


- Gear ratios seem to be off, should be 0.9 for 6th, 0.7 for 7th, so it should reach 180 mph in 6th at a little over 6600 rpm (which it does) and at about 5140 rpm in 7th (~5700 rpm in-game).

oops, something went wrong.. gonna edit this as soon as I have the correct numbers..

Nope, my mistake. Gear ratios seem to be fine.


- The MP4-12Cs top speed might be too low or it may not accelerate fast enough at high speeds, see https://getsatisfact...sue_video_proof and https://getsatisfact...mclaren_mp4_12c


- Wikipedia: "McLaren announced a small number of improvements to become available in October 2012, with the option to be retrofitted to existing cars free of charge. The engine now produces 616 bhp (459 kW; 625 PS) and no change to the CO2 emissions which remain at 279 g/km.[12] This power output has also become standard on the 2013 model."

Since the updates can be retrofitted free of charge, I'd like to see them applied to "our" 12C.
