Yeah, I've only ever paid for two pieces of software in 27 years. Grand Prix 3 (2000) and Assetto Corsa (2016)
Nothing to be proud off, if the creators do not get paid we soon run out of creators !!!!!!!!

Any chance of limiting the tire choices on the F40? The poor old Porsche needs some degree of hope  for race!

is it heaps faster ?

and what tyers to allow for it the street or the street90s
Phil, I was thinking of increasing the "slipstream effect" from x1 to x2 or even x3 to allow for the slower top speed of the 908, I think it will even out the difference and even create closer racing on this unique circuit.

how do you do that
Good question, I presumed it would be in the server options, but discovered it is not in my server setup options.
In Offline mode it is under tyre wear, fuel consumption etc. I guess it must be possible to change, but beyond my knowledge.
I guess other option would be try Street 90s tyres and see what lap times are being set.

Its not possible to change this in a server, its only an offline option. This track is very much a power circuit as its full throttle maybe 95% of a lap in nearly any car. So whichever car gets the higher top speed will pretty much always be quicker there, you do have the option of limiting tyres but thats only going to effect 4 corners of the lap and I dont think it would have much effect on the cars through the banking but it will also effect tyre wear over a longer run.

You may be best off using the old simple ballast to slow down the faster cars at this track.  ;)
Thanks Marty.

Question from a newbie - there is a yellow and red F40 Ferrari, I'm just wondering which one is the correct one as I noticed the yellow has slightly better performance figures?
thanks in advance,
bradc
The red one is the correct one.

I really enjoyed the racing last night, some of the best I have had, with such a different sound from each car there is no mistaking what make is behind, beside or in front of you. I had lot of long battles with several people especially Rob. I find these cars are a good equaliser as normally I would be way behind Wally, but with both of us in a GT40 I was only a couple of seconds per lap off the pace. It was also great to see such a mix on the starting grid, it must not be obvious which is the fastest car. Good to see Bruce and Gratulin racing also. The rest of the tracks for the season should be better quality, with only Longford 67 in question. But holes aside, Zolder 67 does make for close races! and the "chirp" from the rear wheels in the GT40 after it becomes airborne, is racing music to the ears.

Perfectly put Simone, sums up what the online racing experience is all about and done properly why it is so addictive, it is not about winning!!!
It was racing online for 7 years before I won a race.

Terrific news Bruce, you may be even faster under the influence of drugs. :D

What i find on our server when full is a massive stutter and slow down or jerkiness mainly in corners, its like it cannot redraw the new view (is that the right word ''redraw'' ?)
when there is 3 or 4 on server no issues at all and yes offline big field unplayable

The 550 could be starting to show its age, I reckon.
Try turning off Post Processing and reduce reflections.

so is the 2 enduros to many ?
No, I do not think so.

I prefer sprints with reverse grid format, I think it provides exciting racing for everyone. Thanks for organising Phil.

Looking forward to your return Bruce.

if anyone already has a season in mind I don't need to do a poll :)
How about the season I originally suggested, but if some people feel they would be more comfortable driving something other than the
Ruf, F40, 908 or GT40, they can nominate a car of their choice as long as it does not give them an unfair advantage and as much as possible is in keeping with the spirit of the Thursdays theme.

Time to let me know what cars you all like to race at the following tracks and any others that would be cool in a season and I will start a poll

Zolder 66
Monza 66
Hockenheim 60's
Silverstone 67
Zandvort
Monaco
