    Quick question; does the sim have any time or speed penalties for all those driving aids?

    I had a quick go earlier and I know graphics aren't everything but this is very poor.

    I'd like to try this car and track before I decide to sign up, but I can't find them in the downloads section. Does anyone have a link to where these can be downloaded? Thanks.

    I downloaded track via server, no probs at all, so I am sure, you can get car also there.

    Is your rF2 up to date? Build 880?

    I can't help you with the minimalist UI. I don't use it.
  13. Yes i am using build 880. It only shows the join button only for a few servers. I'll see if i can fix it somehow

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Please sign me up.
    Is it ok if I dont use any assists?:cool:
  15. What lap times are you doing? I want to have a target so I can practice. I'm about 10 seconds faster than the AI at 120%, so I can't use the AI.

    Discussing lap times is frowned upon.:( It sometimes discourages some from participating because they think they are to slow.:)

    I haven't done any laps yetbut have driven the car before and Brands before so will prob only do 60 mins practice.
    As Matt said we keep lap times quiet to have a more welcoming inclusive feel to club racing.
    Normally however I get it to my limit, arrive at the track and find I'm 3-4 sec out then find another 2sec.
  18. Oh ok. I'll wait and see. We need more people for the race. 2 is not enough.

    10 secs quicker that the hardest AI setting?
  20. Yes. The AI are really slow at Brands Hatch. On other tracks the AI is better.
