Formula V8 is a single seater resembling a Lola Formula 3000 car.

Based upon a Formula 3000 racecar, this is the second fastest but most difficult car to drive in LFS. Once mastered though, it offers great rewards to the driver. It's no Formula One car but don't let that fool you into thinking this isn't one awesome car. Just look at that power-to-weight figure! Suffice to say, the acceleration is incredible. It can pull over 3Gs in the bends. And if it stopped any quicker it would hurt (well, more-so). Only drive it if you have the balls.

Setup tip

Like the FOX, you don't really need much understeer, just use downforce to keep the rear in place. High tyre pressures work well on this car.
