I can't get this to work . Exactly where do you drag and drop pit-mod files to ? I still am getting unavailable content on server listI can't remember - you need to see what folder is at the top level of the zip file, and drag that onto the same place. E.g. if the zip starts at ks_highlands, drag that into your tracks folder.
It just felt good around here, being gentle on the throttle, upshifting early when exiting corners, entering the hairpins very slowly.
Sorry about the lap 1 wobble in front of you Seanus. It almost turned into a baby tankslapper there.

I just tried to do that but got a strange crash.What's a good lap time for this track?We'll see when people put some laps in on the practice server:
I just joined OK and put a few laps in. Can anyone else confirm if this is or isn't working for them?

I want to remind everyone of this rule:

Everyone needs to calm down, take a deep breath and get their emotions in check. I am looking at the situation. I don't care who's driving what car. I am making a judgement call as to who might have made an avoidable mistake that impacts someone else badly. Nobody likes to be sent to the back of the field on the opening lap, due to no fault of their own, after all that practice and qualifying; that's what we're all trying to avoid.
As to "caving", I am representing "community standards" and adjusting my decision accordingly.

It seems I'm in the wrong here
It's good to hear "community views".
After trial by a jury of peers, it seems I have to award Godzilla a penalty of 50kg after all, for failing to stay on his side of the track in the opening corners.
But the impact with Russ I still see as not Godzilla's fault. Watch the replay again - Godzilla is just driving in a straight line near the edge of the track, not deviating left, when Russ rejoins from off-track and clips him in the rear side. It is always the responsibility of the off-track car to rejoin safely.
how long for an enduro is good for Thursdays, 35, 40 mins ?I'm easy with any duration. The only thing to watch out for is that in a smaller field, the cars tend to get quite spread out in longer races.

It could conceivably be a problem with the pit mod. We'll see if anybody else gets the problem.I just tried to do that but got a strange crash.What's a good lap time for this track?We'll see when people put some laps in on the practice server:

Race 2 Video Review
Here's the start of race 2, focussing on Godzilla's orange and white car. Godzilla ends up with Joe's blue car to the left. A little later, you see RussG's white car re-entering the track from the left and clipping Godzilla.
Here's my take on it. There's not much in the Godzilla/Joe impact. I always cut a lot of slack for drivers in side-to-side impacts because you can't see the other car at all. In this instance, Godzilla could have shown more awareness that there may be a car to the left, but he may not even be aware that there was a car alongside him.
Suggestion for Godzilla - if you're not already running the Helicorsa app, you should be, to get a graphic warning that someone's alongside you.
In the Godzilla/RussG contact, Godzilla is just driving on his line when Russ re-enters from off-track into the rear side of Godzilla, again out of view of Godzilla.
So I stick with my original opinion - racing incidents.

Which Highlands we doing? The short one should be a blast!The intermediate one. The short one is just around the town. I wanted another high speed track on the schedule.

I won't comment without looking at the replay again, as the whole start was complex, with Seanus not starting off the line and bottling up the field which then went up the hill. It might be a good point of discussion in the video thread. I'll put up a video tonight.Race 2
