The original for this round had far too many turns and tight ones at that for this early 'fun' days. Looking forward to doing a few laps this evening...

Definately going to try and make this one (if the grid's not full).
The perfect track for these cars. ;D

Bruce I think there must be a setting to have the server loop or something?  We had a few runs last night but after each race it throws everyone out instead of restarting.

Are you using the windows gui server app to set up the server? I find that the easiest way as it has all options there and mostly its fairly straight forward. I just use that and then copy the entry list amd server cfg over to the server and it only takes a few seconds to change. Also quite easy to set cars and add skins using this method.

There is an option to loop server in there, I would also suggest reducing the vote time to maybe 10 or 15 seconds. The current vote time was so long but even if we tried to restart eace it would just boot everyone likely due to it not looping.

Also I found using the free Amazon server I can run up to 24 cars with 10hz refresh and flow control off. Had quite a few on my public server with season 3 cars and didnt see any issues surprisingly other then a few cars being lost over time.

Thanks Marty, do you have a link to the server tool? and I will increase the numbers as the signups increase.
cheers.

Great track. Bit hard to judge 1st corner but feels great when you get it right.
Few spots to fall through the ground. Mainly on the inside of the track.
Seems to be very slippery and bumpy once off the track. But hey. Over all it will be a great race I think

Yep, I found a hole myself, but good testing these out in the fun nights and really good incentive to drive well :) The fFactor version of this notoriously slippery off and on the track, at least this version, in these cars, feels okay. More bumps the better for my liking, not that I have driven on this track :) but I hope it may be like the real thing.  Should be a good track for these cars.
