Fun Run 22-02-2018
« on: February 15, 2018, 04:36:14 PM »
I know its a lot to ask to download 5 mods at once, but  I would like to try all of them next week if everyone is cool with that, and then get opinions on the night what would everyone like to race.
As its a fun run I was thinking 3 short races, One race with Mustang and Caterham-seven,  I know probably totally different lap times, think of it as a multiclass race :)
second race the 2 Easter cars and a third race with the formula student car.

Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted , One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?

Great, and because they don't number their d/l I have no idea what version I have. >:(
It's a good thing I don't have Phil's interweb speed. ;D

Those students drive too fast! Electric power certainly is addictive...

I just had a go in each of the cars. The RAF and Melkus are good fun. The Mustang Mach 1's are horribly understeery - you turn the wheel and it feels like nothing's happening :)
The Boss's are good fun - the 429 is a handful.
The Formula Student has unbelievably twitchy steering. What's the steering lock - 5%??? The Caterhams also have a very tight steering lock, but are fun to drive.

Ha. That's quite understeery too if you come in too fast, but at least you don't have to slow to 20 kph to make a corner ;)

No problem here. That first Caterham dust sound very good. I'll be curious to see what this other one is like.
