    Server is UP!
     
  6. After my recent problems with pitstop I read again carefully Dennis's "Guide for Pitstops". First time it slipped my mind that requesting the pitstop gives you extra 5-6s!:redface:
    But I'm actually interested in what it means "...Know that in RaceDepartment Race07 races, we have Auto Gears turned on, this means you don't have to use the clutch...". Do you set both automatic gearbox and automatic clutch to on? As I enter the server and go to the realism section I can see that both automatic gearbox and automatic clutch may be toggled. So I always set automatic gearbox to off but automatic clutch to on. Of course I use clutch during start. I find paddles to change gears easier to use although I know that with WTCC I should use stick instead;).

    @Aleksander Pienkowski , Auto gears means that you have an automatic transmission and no need to use the shifter or paddles, the gears will shift up and down at the "correct rpm's". It might not be the timing you would choose or the gear you would like to be in but it will change without you doing anything. RD "allows" drivers to use Auto Gears, but you do not have to use them!

    Auto Clutch, whether this is on or off will make little difference to driving as the transmission seems to work very well without it. The biggest difference is that having auto clutch turned off means that if you spin off track or come to a stop, the motor will quit unless you depress the clutch. I have manual gears, auto clutch and use the clutch pedal for launching the car and that's the only time I use it.

  8. Do you use paddles or stick shifter to change gears if it's not a secret?;)

  13. It's no shame to use paddles, Jim. Formula 1 drivers use it. I tried to be hardcore at the beginning an used H-shifter, then switched to stick shifter and finally realized that paddles are the most comfortable and fast.:)

    Aleksander, don't tell me that! I'm vunerable and I can't cope with making choices about gear shifters so don't give me anymore to thing about :roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:

    IF you have Replays turned on you can view it there, take a screenshot or capture it using Fraps or MSI's Afterburner.
