    I had recently created a thread about how to make an F8 feel like a Pista. I learnt that it's not possible.

    So, I thought of buying an F8 for the roads and casual track use and a used 488 race car for the track.

    Has anyone driven a challenge and a Pista? How do they differ?

    That's like saying, "is it different to be hit by a hammer vs. a pillow?"

    Slicks are like weed.... the gateway drug. Aero is like crack.

    get a 458 GT3 for the track, best value for money, faster and cheaper to run than challenge and any road ferrari on track. and sounds way better than any 488 Challenge or GT Car. I've owned and raced 458 GT3, 458 GTE, 488 GT3 and GTE.

    I never track any road car.

    I’m a newbie but I also agree with this sentiment. Couldn’t find a 458 GT3 but have a 458 Challenge coming for this season. Will post pics here when it arrives.

    Congratulations, great fun. you might consider to replace the standard CCM brakes with Steel versions, much cheaper and even better. there are also kits available for different wheels so you have more variations of slick tyres. Let me know if you need and contact details.
    and keep it on the black stuff. ;)
