    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    I am in please.
    When you drive this car you feel like you have bought one. One of the best cars in RF2 and produces great racing.
    Might involve a pit stop!!

    Andreas,
    I seem to recall we dont have ABS or TCS in this race. I might be wrong.
    However it creates incredibly close racing.The car is very manageable but you need to practice a little to master it.
    IMO regardless of what happens IRL what happens here is exquisite RF2 racing. The dynamics of the car and the tight setup menu works very well.This mod is in the top group of RF cars.
    See you on track.

    EDIT: if you want a setup (this car tends to understeer a lot on defaults) send me a PM.

  7. Thanks. Just wondering since there was a thread regarding TC (and ABS) in the paddock club.
    Anyway I´m struggling to get my laptime low and the setup to work fine. Found a good base setup on the download section. But I wonder if the AI has ABS and TC since they seem to break later and harder than me....

    They may. AI is a real variable in RF2. depends so much on the car and the track. Sometimes I have them at 90% sometimes at 100% or even 105.

    IMO TCS would be very slow in this car as the trick is to get the rear to rotate. TCS will just make it push into understeer.
    Watch you front tyre temps. If only they are heating like mad mid corner its understeering too much. Need to get th erears involved a bit. Races have been lost on tyre wear in this car( which is quite cool really).
    As the setup range is limited I think you might need to add some rear tyre pressure and spring and damper as well as lowering front. Also min diff lock on power side. Have fun.

    Indeed: the real car has 3 TC settings: Off, low, full and ABS on or off. Therefore it should be available for us to use too. I will set the server to allow TC and ABS. ;)

    Thanks for sharing the info. :thumbsup:

    You can turn them on/off with the F7 and F8 keys on your keyboard while driving.

    Be aware that this car is inherently understeery. TCS tends to make it even harder to coax into oversteer. try both maybe?
     
  14. Sign me up for this please! 90% that I can make it but I will cancel early Friday morning if I can't.

    Yes, i know, but i don't have time to up-date the server and create a new Vmod. So we use the "old" version for now. Next time will be the new version!!! :)
