    Clios @ National and DTM @ GP (updated the first post).

    Anything not mentioned in the thread is kept at default/not restricted.

    Here is what the config looks like if you are curious:

  10. Is it possible to race with default setup, it's the most fair?
    Damage ALL? So you have to drive carefully?
    and last but not least Cockpit view only?
    • Agree Agree x 1
  11. Default setup sucks big ass, since its locks fuel and tires. in other words you dont know what you gonna get.
    Damage all? you nuts? this game got so many bugs with its damage system..
    And what is the big deal with 3rd person cams now?

    PS. Setup doenst make you faster if you dont know how to use it.
    I use default most of the time with some tweaks to it. I'll be happy to share it with anyone who wants it.

    Seriously? Only arcade kids would use 3rd person view because it sucks big ass. If I had my way it would Cockpit view only (I use helmet cam myself). And if damage was working I'd have that too. And I would prefer fixed setups too. This is not league racing.
    • Agree Agree x 2
  13. we tried fixed setup in the rain, thats went really dam great with a 100% difflock in a clio >.< Like come on guys lets people change what they want. ITS NOT LEAGUE RACING.

    Same for everyone though. Fair all round. Some people don't mess with the setups because they don't understand them. It's not win at all costs in the club, its about having fun.
  15. Andy, please. This is casual club racing. If you really want hardcore racing you can start your own league. I'm not the one making the decisions here, but I'm pretty sure Dennis started this to attract more players and for the fun of it. He's trying to cater to more people by making it relaxed and casual. You can drive the way you want, that's fine by me, just remember that there has to be room for everyone. This is the beginning of the online league/racing scene for this game so we want lots of people playing it, not just a select few who prefer helmet view over anything else.

    I really see no point in having that many restrictions. We're all playing the same game, and if anything driving in 3rd person makes you slower. Also, as Mathias Nielsen said, having fixed setups would be a really bad idea, for the sole reason that we could end up with some really bad combos. I don't know about you, but I don't want to drive that Clio with locked diff in the rain ever again.

    As soon as SMS fixes this game breaking bug (which has been around since release!) we can race with damage enabled.

    All views are allowed on club races at RaceDepartment. As @Korsbaek has said it's about attracting people and getting big grids.
    Also the kind of display that you are using has a big impact on what views are acceptable for you, which is why forcing a certain view would not necessarily level the playing field.

    Since there will be no rain this might indeed be an option (especially for the DTM car). Has anyone verified that default fuel will last the entire race?

    I am not a big fan of default set-up in general and even more in Project Cars, mainly because part of the wheel and FFB adjustments are considered car set-up. But I will join anyway. :)

    Thanks for tagging me @Dennis, unfortunately my G27 is faulty (looses centering) and driving with it is impossible. I will not be able to participate, until it is fixed or replaced. Not expected soon though... :(
