    I'm hoping I can race in this one on Friday night if I get my new license in time, seem to be having a problem at the moment where two users have the same name!

    Anyway, I've been practising this track and I have a few questions.

    Does anyone have a setup for this track? The reason I ask is I can't seem to turn the damn truck! When I up the steering lock things seems better but it appears to be not drive able otherwise.

    Unless I'm missing something here and these trucks need to be seriously slow into corners?

    Also, when I up the steering lock in the garage all the ai at this track start rolling over in the corners, am I doing something wrong here?

    Thanks for any help

    It's a bit counter intuitive how these things handle, as with many cars (and especially heavy cars with lots of power) you need to be done with braking before you start turning, but once you start turning in is when they behave a little different, the more throttle to put in the more the car turns, it'll slide, but very slowly and controlled as long as you have braked enough upfront and are smooth with throttle application. This is one of the reasons they are so much fun to drive, you pretty much powerslide every corner.
    Well at least this is how I have been approaching it, I might be way off the mark, someone else will hopefully come along and tell us if so xD

    Thanks for thinking of me Kjell, but my schedule has changed and currently unable to race online at my regular days and times.

    I also haven't got my experience up to par with Trucks yet, haven't played it enough since getting it.

    Hi chaps
    I've just got this game so I'm not up to speed with the forum. Is there any help or guidance for newbies anywhere? Do I need to take a backup copy of the game before adding modded content such as the track? What happens if the game becomes corrupt? I read something about a synch feature somewhere, does this return the game to a default state? Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on these matters.

    Hi @Denis Betty , So far this sim is rock solid in adding tracks, no need for a back up like GTL,
    the file structures are the same as gtl just look for the locations folder and put the track in there,

    PLR file tricks.
    so you only see a clear view behind you.
    under graphic options
    Self In TV Rearview="0" // add values for any that should be visible (0=none): 1=rear wing & wheels, 2=body & susp, 4=cockpit, 8=steering wheel (15=all)
    Self In Cockpit Rearview="0" // add values for any that should be visible (0=none): 1=rear wing & wheels, 2=body & susp, 4=cockpit, 8=steering wheel (15=all)

    I've had this sim for a couple of months now and not really taken it out for a spin so I'll give tonight a bash if I may. I'll be online from 8.00pm onwards getting some practice in..

    Somehow i never downloaded Zolder for Power & Glory or Historix, so i just did my first practice laps ever here and boy what a great combo this is with the trucks, already one of my favourite circuits.

    The server is down for like half an hour (at least, i didn't check earlier), hope it's just a matter of a couple more minutes :unsure:

    @Reiza Studios , heeeeeeelp us please, internet matchmaking is unavailable.

    Still no connection guys :(

    We have a hour before we start fingers crossed
    We can then look every half hour for a race start.
    So if 21:00 GMT in a no go
    21:30 GMT Try again
    22:00 GMT Try Again
