I almost feel sorry for the Merc drivers. This one is ideal for the shorty Bird!

At least we have nice damper settings for the evil bumps here :P

Have fun.

Half way round the track, don't drive up that dirt road up the hill to the right to see what's up there. All that's up there is a whole lot of hurtling through space.Or if you do drive up there, save your setup first  :o :-X

Quick and dirty tweaks to this track.

Some users may wish to use the patch above. :-*
Will not cause online mismatches.* **

Inside your 'sonoma' track folder lives 'sonoma.kn5'. The patch will replace this so please back it up before copying the patch into said folder.

 Re lit the curbs and yellow lines, and added cones at the last hairpin so you can see what to aim for.
 Filled annoying gaps between curbs and track. Added shadows.

     *Please backup your files and then test the patch online lest I'm mistaken. >:(
     **Wally you won't need to touch the server. ;)
Think your missing the link GzeroD ??  Unless I just cant see it!

Can’t seem to find the link either....that would be rather helpful as I did drive down the wrong side by accident a couple of times, only saving grace was that I didn’t get booted out of the practice session. Also if anyone knows how to get the suspension of a longtail to settle down (default is like a bucking bronco) I’d love some hints.

I think the Shorty needs more handicap  :o

Qual setup attached for Shorty drivers to try ...

If in clean air out in front I agree, they will be unbeatable. But with the tight nature of this track a short tail could be rather frustrating if then end up behind a long tail or Sauber.
