I'm glad there is an update, i really hope they've fixed those two Skylines.......I can't ever recall (seeing them race in the day) them sounding like a Dyson vaccum and they never had pop-off valves which popped like a modern day drift car.....I must admit I was amazed how fast the DR30 was with no front and rear windscreen  ::)

The more I drive these cars the more I start to think they are more someone's modern interpretation of what they'd be like with modern upgrades than a proper 'historic' mod....which got me thinking. Wally, but have you considered running both Group C&A together like we see in modern historic racing as I found around there isn't a lot of time difference between both around Mugello

I hadn't considered that the lap times might be comparable in both groups. As there's already a lot of cars in the list, I might do a separate Group C fun run and then we can compare times. I'm not too hung up on historical accuracy with this mod - I just reckon it will give fun racing.

Done a few laps in some, they're fairly close aside from the ovlov, at least the one's I've tested. The differences could play out other ways depending on track too. I think it'll look cool with a bunch of these on track, also whether accurate or not I think they sound pretty good, I like the extra sound effects on those turbo cars and can't decide to use v8 or turbo. I'm getting some sort of strange visual reverb/vibration effect in the R31, no others have it, it's almost like some sort of thing they'd do in a fast n furious movie lol

Finally had a chace to try a few cars yesterday and they all felt like they had rear brake dragging all the time. Made it very hard to get out of the pitsd let alone trying to get it round corners. Anyone else have an issue like this?

I swapped to another mod and no issue at all. (except the realisation I was only getting 94% throttle half the time from my pedals)

No, I didn't find that. The brakes are quite sensitive, so I reduced the brake pressure in all cars I tried.

Seemed pretty wierd to me. I changed my wheel back to the G27 while I clean and service the fanatec stuff and it was all good today. I am however having framerate issues. Lapping on my own I'm getting 90fps but with a full grid of AI cars, I'm getting drops to 15fps at points around the track. Not really playable at that rate.

My hardware isn't the latest and greatest but an 8-core AMD and RX580 OC shold play better than that, even in VR. Without VR, still getting some issues but will most likely have to turn off the VR for this series. It feels really odd without the VR now.

We have to use the Group C cars.
I'm a bit smitten with the A9X and I'd like to get to know her a bit better. :-*
