I like it. You can lock the setups except for the gearing changes, or whatever you want to allow (fuel?). It's on the AC forums, and I think Marty knows how to do it.

Just a thought that maybe the Sierra DTM can replace the M235i **IF** we want to keep the cars "period correct".

In my own testing with the AI driving, the 190E Evo II does 54.4 around Barbagallo, the M3 E30 DTM does 54.5 and the Ford Sierra DTM (link at the bottom of this post) does 54.7.

The M235i does it in 57.4 which is a few seconds slower (although, again, this is with the AI driving), so this could be used as the "punishment" car for the faster drivers (pending further testing of course, just in case it was a fluke that the AI was so slow in my testing).

However, again, in the sake of possibly keeping it a bit more period correct, there is also the Vauxhall Cavalier BTCC '90 (which in my testing did a 55.3). In addition, there is also the Honda Civic SiR-II Group A '91 (Barbagallo in 56.0). I'm pretty sure all three of these mods were made by Malagoli, who does some fine work in my opinion.

Ford Sierra '82 (including DTM and Group A versions): http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/1987-ford-sierra-cosworth-rs500.4840/
Vauxhall Cavalier BTCC '90: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/1990-vauxhall-cavalier-btcc.8566/
Honda Civic SiR-II Group A '91: http://www.mediafire.com/download/12t3pto1ahpys0j/CivicEG_GRA_1.0_NoSkin.rar

Of course these would all require more testing to make sure everybody is happy with them and to make sure my AI testing was accurate.

ahh that would be good... nice to see you spotted the longer races. Maybe you need to give a Porsche driver a nudge when your organised.

AJ that is impressive testing, not too mention your knowledge of the cars and their history...
Looks like we need to use some of your suggestions, will get to update the initial suggestion and then hand on to Phil again...
BIG thanks.

this looks like a lot of fun and would be a good excuse to learn how to play this sim after nearly a decade of rfactor. Just one question on the downloads - are those tracks which don't have links already in the game or are they located elsewhere on this forum?
cheers,
bradc
