Considering the new build for Season 4, where some adjustments have been made to the Balance of Performance (BoP) of the GTE cars, which car will you choose for PRL Tuesday Series Season 14?

Christian, they usually post what was added to the new build in the Announcement Page.
I've searched the forums and can't find any info. Can you direct me to it or comment on what's changed ?

Thanks Jean. Was concerned I'd have to change setups again.
Good thing for Ford drivers though.

The Ferrari wont change, so, the Setups should work, 
Porshe a little bit worse, and Ford a little bit better, I think it will be very close each other!

Setups for Ferrari and Ford should work, but the Porsche got a "new gearbox", and that is a big change.

Just the relevant parts of the update for BoP adjustment.

Ford GT - 2017

2018 Season 4 GTE BoP Adjustments: Engine power has been increased slightly for better acceleration. Slightly reduced aero drag at low rear wing angles. Fuel fill rate has been updated to equalize fuel fill times during pit stops.

Adjusted sounds for backfires and pneumatic shifting.

Porsche 911 RSR

2018 Season 4 GTE BoP Adjustments: Gear ratios have been opened to match the other GTE cars, slightly reduced downforce at high rear wing angles, reduced engine torque, and adjusted aero slightly. Fuel fill rate has been updated to equalize fuel fill times during pit stops.

Suspension and masses have been updated to prevent roll-overs at curb strikes with low track temperatures.

Baseline setup has been updated with a gear stack built for the transition to open ratios.

I hope to be slightly more competitive this season in the Ford.
*Edit
There seems to be a possible Ferrari GTE update as well. Focusing on the term 2018 S4 Ferrari 488 GTE BoP Adjustments (Listed under Ferrari 488 GT3)

Ferrari 488 GT3

[li]2018 Season 4 GTE BoP Adjustment: Aero downforce has been increased slightly. Fuel fill rate has been updated to equalize fuel fill times during pit stops.[/li]
[li]Gear ratios have been modified to include the real-world homologated gear ratio stacks: FIA, IMSA Daytona, and IMSA Short.[/li]
[li]The Ferrari Challenge gear ratio stack has been added.[/li]
[li][ul]
[li]Please note: 1st gear from the real car was not modeled. As such, 1st through 6th in iRacing are equivalent to 2nd through 7th in the real car.[/li]

Looks like Ford and Ferrari get a boost with a Porsche getting a small nerf and new gearbox.

With this schedule this season, there's not really any clear OP car. Ferrari will probably be OP at Imola and Montreal, but the cars should be even everywhere else.
