    which shift paddle?

    also, reassigning the paddles to buttons would work as well, as Chris Benham suggested ... there is no KERS use and we banned the DRS in previous races with the classics, so resigning the KERS and drs buttons would work... it would take some getting use to though.

    I should be available for this. I'm sure we drove this circuit in the 90s cars in our previous classic series... I'll just have to figure out which car it was i ran. I can't remember if there was much pace difference in the 90s cars or not.... I may have some data related to that i will look for as well.
     
  10. Me too but seeing as I hardly get a race in 2014 these days i'm well up for these instead :)

  11. We raced this in the season finale Karl. You were in the FW18. The cars are more equal in the 90's than the 80's.

  12. Robert and I had a quick 25%er this morning before I headed off for work and it was really enjoyable racing them again but did take a bit of getting used to. I forgot how much fun these cars are to drive and it was really noticeable how much more sensitive the steering was. I’ll have to adjust the settings as I found myself putting too much steering into the car into corners at times. It would be good to get a bunch of us in but we’ll fill it up with AI and go with whoever is around.

    That's true Champ. I had forgotten about the DRS and KERS stuff since I don't really do F1 anymore (still praying 2015 is gold), but now that you mention it I think I remember something about DRS actually working and us having to raise our right hand and pledge not to use it. But there is something sort of freeing and nice about just racing the car....

    Sorry for trying this on Mother's Day over there. But, yea, Peter, we can just line up and blow off some steam against the A.I. with you beating me and Karl beating you. (I promise no discos...that's 100% guaranted. lol). And Karl, if it's just us three or a couple more, we can always look at the 80s cars if you prefer. Flexible here. Just thought this would be fun. The run with Peter reminded me how enjoyable these beasts are to drive and how accurate they felt.

    The good thing about running the classic cars on the classic tracks is that there is no DRS zone... so with no place to activate it it won't work. :)

    don't you remember? The geniuses that are at CM didn't disable the DRS effect for the classics. Anywhere there was a DRS activation zone you could use the nonexistent DRS. The rear wing would not move, but there was a noticeable speed increase.

    Wait...guys help me out...didn't the bare game come with the cars and then the DLC gave you the two tracks? Or did you get just the 80s cars with the bare game? Or something else? I can't remember.
