    To enjoy these little cars the most you'll need to adjust a few settings.

    Controller settings:
    Steering wheel range: is at 128 by default.
    Uncheck "Vehicle set" and alter the value to your liking. (i'm at 660)

    Car-Specific FFB Multi: is at 1.00 by default.
    The cars have very weak FFB. You can increase this. (i'm at 2.00)

    The first time in the car. You'll need to adjust your seat position.

    Use auto clutch: The cars are like a go-karts only brakes and throttle. At the starting grid don't hit your throttle! hold your brake and press full throttle on green.

    This is a stupid idea, and you're ridiculous for having it. I'll see you there. :thumbsup:

    Plus, no one can really say there isn't enough space to overtake, right? :)

    Thanks for the tag, by the way-- I keep forgetting to check this section

    They are RC's :D
    ISI released the Formula RC. These are Remote Control miniature F2 cars, developed as a fun sideproject in the free time of the employees of ISI.

    Normally you would use a TV cam and control them from outside the vehicle. But this quite difficult. So we are going to be little people in a toy car. :D Did you ever seen Toy Story. :)

    Oyeah, and they are fast! :) With a good setup and a good slipstream, they reach a speed of 148km/h (92mph).

    Just tested them with AI so fun from the cockpit view. It is slipstream heaven :D.
    After that I jumped in a Megane and it felt like a bus. Really fun to drive and it is really all about keeping the momentum going and taking most of the corners flat out without loosing to much speed.

    I'll try and pop in for this one, don't imagine racing lines and braking points matter too much!
