    I can drive the track with the mod offline but I get an HDV "or" Trackconfig mismatch. The only servers up are for the CART mod so I can't check with another vehicle but it seems to be in the Cart mod.

    I have the trackname from the gdb file in the TrackConfigBase.ini and I have tried to run each of the three options for the car, all with no success.

    This is what my TrackConfig looks like:
    ========================================================================
    Chassis Configuration=0=road (default)
    Chassis Configuration=1=short oval
    Chassis Configuration=2=speedway
    Chassis Configuration=3=superspeedway
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


    ----------GSX EXTREME TRACKS--------------------------------

    "Indianapolis_500":
    Chassis Configuration=3

    "Interlagos External Ring":
    Chassis Configuration=1

    "Jacarepagua Oval":
    Chassis Configuration=1


    ------------RF TRACKS---------------------------------------


    "Indianapolis Motor Speedway":
    Chassis Configuration=2

    "Milwaukee Mile":
    Chassis Configuration=1

    "Gateway International Oval":
    Chassis Configuration=2

    and more tracks....
    ========================================================================
    I love Indy and May is the month!!
    Has anyone here gotten online with this combo?

    I'll be reinstalling both mods this morning, for the second time.

    OK, after a reinstall that did not work I downloaded mod and track again for a reinstall of everything but the sound files[not the problem really].
    Entered the info to the TrackConfigBase.ini the same as before and I can drive online.

    Now, it seems one can drive with any of the aero configurations, which one is the correct one for Indy?

    In my TrackConfigBase.ini the Indy entry is as follows:

    "Indianapolis Motor Speedway":
    Chassis Configuration=2

    I would've guessed it was "3", but apparently not?

    Also, have you had any luck finding any populated CART Extreme servers? I'd love to get online with it but every time I check, the servers running it are all dead...

    It may be possible to run any of the configurations and that if you have the wrong one you will just be using the wrong setup. One might be optimized, I've found the "2" to work in the low 40's for a long run. The "3's" might do better at Fontana, Michigan, etc, I dunno.

    I've been going to the phoenixracingclub server and when there were people on they tried to help me but I have't been there since being able to drive. I put in over 100 laps today. I can't get into the 39's I've seen posted there.
     
  7. Config 3 was only used on the super speedways to keep the speeds down because it has the handford device on the rear wing. I believe during the 98 season it was only Michigan and Fontana it was used.
