Title: Thursday 15th Oct Cobra Night is at IMOLA! IMOLA!
Post by: Bruce on October 14, 2015, 08:52:12 PM
The cobra at Mid America is BAD!
Sorry for very late notification, but the track is woeful, my fault, I picked it for the Cobras.

We all know Imola, it is good with the Cobras!

Same server just search for XGN or Joe.

Apparently the Cobra is still on the V4 tyre model, so if it's good, it must be because it's on an AC track.

I like that assessment Gratulin.

Lets hope they address the tyre problem Wally, it would be good to see a Cobra versus GT40 Season... instead of just a GT40 series.

It is just a totally different car, back to being fun instead of a nightmare.  THanks  for the new setup to match the 1.3 update.

I think I had better get the Dream pack 2 tonight, the $7.99 US ($11.40 AUS roughly) deal runs out in 17 hours.
See You on track.

You bet Imp, the GT40 is fantastic, along with other cars from the general conversation.

I didn't really find the GT40 too exciting.  It's a bit stable for my liking.  You can be fairly careless with the throttle compared to the Cobra.

Yeah,but you're a Loose Goose. I loved the GT40.

FYI, I just did some laps in the GT40 at Imola and did a 2:00.2. My PB in the Cobra was 2:02.9. So I'm only a little quicker in the GT40 than the Cobra.

V5 tyres would make a difference?

I doubt it - it's hard to tell, as the two cars handle vastly differently.

Thanks Gratulin for the reminder of the special offer, I checked with Tim Wheatly, it was sent to all that had purchased rFactor.
I had purchased rFactor2 at some price???? It worked for a while, then I lost access and with that, interest.
Tim said my purchase hadn't processed, so not sure there.  I just purchased the lifetime member for $AU50.

What a mess rF2 is!!! Can't work out how to get some content to try out multiplayer. Installing mods is a dog's breakfast - have to download, then install and even then I get told content missing in multiplayer servers.

Pretty close to giving it back and getting a refund!!!

AC is SO EASY!!!
