(I post this here because the 2012 S3 build was when the V8 Falcon was last modified). An update on the issues found on the V8 by pushing setups to their limits:

Although, the current tyre model sucks for kerb hopping as the car simply bounces. The V8 physics are still wrong as all of us have pushed the setup so far in the series that we have found so many bugs in it that give a huge gain. This makes the car terribly difficult to drive but extremely fast if driven in the correct way. A bit annoying really.
Hopefully the NTM "little tweak", currently previewed in the Mclaren MP4, will be added to the V8 with the upcoming 2013 S1 build, and address some of the above.
