FZ50 on LFS.net

FZ50 is an RR sports car resembling a Porsche 911.

This is the fastest road car available in LFS, favoring top speed over handling. Its high weight, high power and rearward weight distribution make for an challenging, yet entertaining drive. Go take it for a spin and make those tyres squeal.


FZ50 was released on June 24, 2005 as a part of the initial S2 release (0.5P). At that time, it did not have a traction control switch - it was added the following year in version 0.5S.

Setup tip

Doesn't actually need that much understeer. Heavy engine braking is the main issue, so most importantly have the differential very tight on the coast side to help with off throttle oversteer, and move the brake bias forward to help stability under braking. Also, along with BF1, FZ50 is the only other car with traction control.
