    I want to try to make this. I love historic cars!!! I'll download the track and car and get to practicing! And I have fond memories of the Glen from my old Papyrus NASCAR days!

    Well Phil I can tell you this is going to be a bit beastly in these cars........they have a ton of PULL but be alert as that power will bite you quickly coming on throttle off a corner.

    I have a setup or ttwo online I think as well....

    but man you can;t beat the sound of these! BIG BORE V8 all the way!

    Sounds good to me. I need to practice my "squeezing on" the throttle, as Bentley puts it!

    aaaah you must be referring to ROSS BENTLEY.......his book was "speed Secrets" right? Try Carroll Smith's "drive to win"............really excellent

    I'll give it a read. Thanks for the recommendation. I'm about half way through Speed Secrets. Some good info, but not as much as I'd hoped for.

    Please sign me up.
    Computer crashed moments before Minis at Limerock last night, stuck in a safemode loop. Should have it back in plenty of time for these great cars.

    Silly as it sounds, I like Bob Bondurants book much more for some solid basics.

    Ross assumes, much like Carroll, that your a very good pilot when you read it...........some things just won;t apply for us

    Okay, I've downloaded the car and track and taken her for a spin. Love her! But is there a fix for the menu so that an icon shows for the Escort? All I have is a blank. But it's the only blank, so I knew it was the Escort.

    I should be more specific probably. I have an icon for the Escort herself. It's the page where you pick the car sets, such as WTCC or GT, etc. I must have done something wrong. I'm not that familiar with the file structure yet.

    I found and copied three menubutton files from /Textures_Mamba into /Textures and that seemed to do the trick.
