    Just when I considered the cold I caught well-timed as there wouldn't be much need for training this week... Nords comes along ;)
    Oh, well then.. went for a few somewhat decent laps (read: lots of room for improvement ;)) in a nice mix of modern, old and ohmygodwhatishappening :D

    Mustn't run the CSL up to the red line too much. I think it's possible to fry the engine in a single lap if you shift too late habitually (I came close once)

    I found the Mini to be difficult to keep on the limit, many crashes but the CSL has techology so old it's like not having any. I rate it the most difficult of those driven so far!

    Hm, just bought Retro Pack and Race Injection in order to have a few laps today but still one car missing (see screen shot). Don't know what expansion I'm missing. Think I have ever add on. :( Any suggestions?

    I cannot see any discrepancy. How do you get to see that list :unsure:

    @Reik Major On the server I count 21 different BMW's. From your pic I count 21 BMW's and an UNKNOWN!
     
  8. Reik, it may be worth verifying R07 and all your expansions as they're installed, see if anything's gone wonky there. Do you have any mods installed? Maybe it's a ModelID/ClassID problem.

    @April Dillon are you going to post your times from yesterday?

    Dennis, you can see that list when hoovering the mouse arrow over the class used on the server.

    I think I should move away every mod - there could be a conflicting one.

    Tried to find more time by making the car rotate more. Still understeers in places, but it's better. Also adjusted my brake bias about 5 times during the lap :p

    The good news:
    BMW Z4 GTR (GT Club) - 7:19.371

    The bad news:
    - with April's new time, the gap increased ;)
    - my brake pedal's acting up again. Guess I will disassemble them & strengthen the spring even more, but seems like they're begging for retirement

    I think it's more the potentiometer, same thing happened to mine.

    Yup, seems likely - while the "spring fix" worked for a while, I doubt that I (or my tools :D) will be able to strengthen enough to replicate myself pulling the pedal back with the foot.
    I just had a go with the deadzone settings, most of the jitter seems to vanish at 6%, to get all of it, I had to set it to a whopping 10%, though. No idea if/how much that will hurt my driving :D

    (Goodness, this thing is stable, but it's complete lack of agility makes me miss the Sunred ;))

  18. BMW M3 GTR (GTS) - 6:57.415
    BMW M3 GT2 (GTS) - 6:57.915

    These two cars are in the same class, but I wanted to see if there was much difference between them. It's pretty small really, by the time I had them about where I wanted them the GT2 had a slightly lower top speed. But it drove pretty much the same everywhere else, just a tiny bit quicker I guess.

    Hope there's another time trial next week. I'm not at home until Sunday. Since I've bought any expansion now I hope I won't see any unknown anymore. (Retro Max seems to have very cool cars)
