Fun nights racing, thanks guys... Sorry for the incident at the start of race two, I moved over to get up the inside of one of the Mr. Bean cars but moved too far and there was no room, my rear end rubbed someone and I turned around...sorry if it ruined anyone's race

Open the readme file from sol for information and you should find a link to the shader patch, or search RD for it

I only had a short practice in a few cars and only one more on the night, so not every car and forgot to save the set for the abarth. I also preselected my car choice without really considering lap times and chose, mustang, abarth, m1 (not tested and no set up until final qually).
R1. Surprising last lap effort to snag pole in the first race, I just had to keep it straight with qualifying times and not let anyone past in the race, a few slides though and I thought I'd send myself off like usual but kept it together (enough).
R2. The abarth deserves it's own championship. Good fun battles with everyone.
R3. So not much of a set up and toying with boost control during the race meant I got close to mael and freezer, not enough to pass, but also possibly running out of juice. I wound down the boost to save fuel and dropped off the lead battle.
Again Abarth needs it's own series, also there's the seat leone? mod that would be great for a pommy touring car series too being similar to the Abarth ie fwd, not everyone likes fwd but variety is the spice...
Thanks all

Thanks guys, that was great, really tough to pass, had me sweating quite a bit. It's certainly good not having to worry about setting up the car and just drive. With only 4 rounds this is the last one I can attend, unfortunately due to work. I wonder if it were longer how it would go for me not being able to attend many events, I think I'd end up with a slow car while everyone else starts to upgrade throughout the season?

So, why Porsches?

They tick these boxes:
  • Similar cars, but with a range of performance
  • Simple to set up, in case you're in a different car every week
Query, could this kind of thing be implemented with a single make car but using ballast & restrictor, it would be hard to find suitable cars otherwise?

Funny that LFS still had a better interface & community features then, than AC now. Huh.
In my mind AC has never past the Beta stage. It's woeful in so many areas.
I think you've mentioned it before but What's your preferred sim and why? I've got some steam credit to burn, I have ams and rf2 in my wish list and also heard race room is ok, if you've tried these which is worth the dollars?

Test drive, commodore 64...with a joystick lol

Here's a picture (no idea if this is working :-)

Just let me know if you're up here in Brissie and if you want to give it a go.
Sweet rig

I'm pretty sure my video card shat itself last night and needs to be RMAd. The screen locked up and went multicoloured, and when I rebooted, Windows no longer recognised the card because it reported an error. I updated drivers with a clean install, downgraded drivers, reseated the card, but it would no longer be recognised by Windows. So I've chucked my 980 back in for now.

I'll get the results up tonight.
Nooooo, bummer.
I was crazy busy during the race and running a motion simulator

This took my interest
Yeah, do tell!

It's a 3dof one (seat mover & rear traction loss - pitch, roll and yaw) and I built it myself. A mate up in Moloolaba has built one quite a few yeas ago...I tried it...and crazy me couldn't resist of course :-)
We need pictures.... :)
Pleeaase no, that would be too embarrassing  ;)
I mean the rig is ok I think, it's just that I should be a bit faster with it. Need more seat time, yeah.
Yeeeeeeessssssssss, pictures, more infos
