Hehe, another tune by the Kitty.

I love looking at the tuning forums here. I always find cars I wouldn’t have thought of racing much, and then someone posts a tune and I just feel like I need to go give that car a try. It’s gotten me racing a lot of cars I may not have used in the past. :smiley:

I’m only mentioning that because this is one of those cars.

Thanks! If you use this for the Prague challenge, you will need to add 1.3 to both front and rear bump. Silly cobble stones :slight_smile:
