    You should be driving in cockpit view if you are a true Master of this cars. :p
    (just kidding but cockpit view is the best for hardcore sim-races.)

    TV Cockpit here. I can't see Jack Schitt from the Cockpit view sadly. Apart from a huge steering wheel and blue skies above it.
    Oh, and BTW - Fear me ladies :p I'm down to consistent 1:59.-s racing times ^_^

    Steve, you can get the virtual mirrors in the cockpit view by editing your PLR file.

    Virtual Rearview In Cockpit="1"

    This works just fine for me, I had probs with the little mirrors.

    I have the virtual mirrors on which gives me a huge advantage but can't say that I recommend it. I am trying to stop using it but right now I use mods which have bad mirrors and there for I need to use it.

    Thanks Rich, I also got rid of the head vibration as i couldnt find a "clean up cockpit after throwing up" mod.

    Miles better now.

    Is there a way to send and recieve setups while on a server? I've seen chat to this effect, but have no idea how it works...

    When you're in the pits, there's a small PC icon between "Vote Yes" and "Vote No".
    You click there and you should be able to see it on the right side. You can single share it, or share it with everyone. To single share it, click on the name of the fella you want to send it to first, and then click on the PC icon and share your setup. If you want to send it to everyone then don't click on anyone, or click yourself (I think) and then send it.

    To receive: when someone has sent you a setup, go to your setup area and in the white box with all the folders listed, scroll to the one that says "Received" and in there you will find the setups you were sent. Make sure you load them and then save them back in the correct track folder so you can keep them after you leave server.

    Also, I use the TV cockpit camera as I can see far more of what is going on around me than in cockpit view. However I can happily drive in cockpit view if I need to.

    The standard button for taking a screenshot of your game in rfactor is F12, the pictures will then end up in your 'rFactor\UserData\ScreenShots'-folder. There are also third-party addons that takes pictures of your screen so you dont have to use an actual camera! ;)

    The F12 screenshot in rFactor doesn't work for me with this mod. And I can't figure out why. I have to use Fraps.

    Consistent 2:06 on soft tires, haven't bothered with qual tires since I'd rather start at the back of the grid anyway. How's that for a 56 year old guy? How many times will I get lapped?
