...wonder why there was no movement of the rear mechanicals, it did not occur to me it was just a picture... .... The sound has also changed and is probably more befitting an engine turning at 9000rpm.... ....cleaning up the rear view mirrors, I felt the old ones gave a bit more immersion...Slight misunderstanding there, the view from the rear should be the same, apart from the T280 which now features a V8, the bit I changed was on top of the rear deck where you can now see through the grills(which are absent) into the engine bay. Perhaps these holes let more light in and you can now see the engine from behind because it's no longer in shadow?
The sound, well it can be anything, and I really suggest everyone gets 'Content Manager' as it lets you change your sound for yourself.
The mirrors can be reverted.
And thanks for testing some of my stuff.
Our beloved Lola T290. Now this one deserves some testing.
Power untouched, chassis untouched and tyres untouched.
Fuel tank was behind the rear wheels! Moved it to its real location.
The aero created lift albeit small, so I tweaked it to downforce although still 4/5s of sod all. (9kg@200km/h)
Brake lights now work although really too small and dull to see.
Driver now wears a harness! Cleaned the mirrors and adjusted panel gaps. You can now see through the rear deck to the engine rather than just a picture of it.
Setup parameters loosened up, no changes just a lower minimums/higher maximums.
Similar to above though changed engine both graphically and physically to a Ford DFV 3.0l V8
Rear Tyres slightly wider.
1% larger rear wing both graphically and physically.
The extra power makes it alot harder to drive, somewhat spoiling it I dare say.
Let me know what you think.

...Thanks to Small Block Hero and Bazza for the AC Legends Mods.Hope you're looking forward to my version of the Lola that fixes many of their mistakes and adds the 3.0 litre version as well.

He pitted infront of me some time later so I stayed out for one more and came out way ahead, not sure why. ...From the car.ini for each car
TYRE_CHANGE_TIME_SEC=10 ; time spent to change each tyre
TYRE_CHANGE_TIME_SEC=20 ; time spent to change each tyre
That's why. And I might change cars.
Apart from that a ding dong race, took Bruce out early by out braking myself, took Joe out as described above but mostly took myself out on the second lap whilst leading.
But none of it spoilt my race, except that I didn't feel the Alfa gave me any advantage especially down the straights, only thing going for it is that 4WD lets me avoid a lot of spins as you just keep your boot into it and let the front wheels drag you out.

Solid race for me, great battle with Bacchulum but then I suspect my team boss let me through , then a real laptime tussle with RussG until he ran off but later in the race he almost got me again. We did tangle with him on cold tyres so apologies if I didn't leave enough room there Russ. As is my normal MO i waited for each lapper to light up helicorsa once or twice then seeing as this track is a real one liner I let each past on the main straight. I didn't let Phil through though, I just ran wide there Phil.

Yes, the timing was tested and worked. AC has waypoints 0, 1, 2, that need to be passed in order to count a lap. With only waypoint 0 (start/finish) on the GP track, looping back onto the track just triggers waypoint 0 again and AC starts counting from there.

Damn double Damn. Looks like my efforts to clean up and minimise the upload has messed something up as it also crashes for me now.
So unfortunately this has become too much trouble. I'll fix the track and upload it later to my perversed layouts thread for use in, if this event proves itself repeat worthy, future races.

Bugger. Just when avoiding this type of thing lest it becomes too much trouble to be worth it.Nordschleife with GP Sprint minus Arena.Crashes out for me on loading. The error in the log shows:
AC's logs are very hit and miss, 119.kn5 is one of the balloons! Neither it nor the cameras where touched in my customising.
Will need to double check what I zipped up.
Nordschleife with GP Sprint minus Arena.
For testing purposes.

Each car looks and sounds different, it really is like driving a different car.
But underneath everyone is on a level playing field. Though having said that the very subtle differences in each car I would hope are noticeable but not detrimental to the cars performance.
Others can vouch for the suitability of any model I choose as a donor but like you I hope to only use quality versions with very few if any of the problems you mention and I fix any that I am capable of.
What is this 'Gran Tourismo' or 'Forza' that you mention?

I vote for the 98T.

I vote for the 98T.
As I have "skinned" this car with two entirely different cars.
I've taken the ASR Ferrari 643 and the VRC McLaren mp4\4 as donor cars, both of which I'm assuming are up to AC visual and audio standard, and equipped them with all the physics of the 98T. So essentially a one make series but with out the need to all drive the 'same' car.
Each car will have a very subtle difference as the only thing I change is the wheelbase
So choose a car whose looks or sound you prefer but still be on equal footing with the entire field. (on a side note with 'Content Manager' you can change sounds yourself, mismatch free, which for immersion can really help as I found many cars either to whiny or muffled to turn me on.)
