    Just a note the V12's have launch control, you can map a button to it.
    1. On the start line push the button and hold it (you will see it engages 1st gear)
    2. Press the gas to the max
    3. Wait for the start and release the button and your off. Zooooom away
    As far as I can see (only tested it once) it will automatically work up the gears until the end of the launch sequence.

    Yeah,yeah zoom away...into the wall ! :roflmao: I'd join but before that i'd definately need some tips on how to make it less nervous under (full) throttle. And more pracitce. Atm it's much too nervous for my liking or skill. I've set sensitivity to the lowest possible, yet still it goes berserk and i feel i'm losing a lot of time trying to make it go. Especially in 2nd and 3rd gear... Ay tips on how to stabilize it under throttle in lower gears ? I can somewhat manage it after 3rd gear. Thanks

    You can try short shifting into third/fourth, I found that helped a little, and if it's too twitchy don't be ashamed to pop on a few assists - they will be available. I know I'll be using some.

    Yeah, right now short shifting is helping me while trying to figure out in what rpm range it tends to become loose...but i'm still struggling with controlling the car and i can only do a low 22. I believe this is quite off the pace. Anyway, will let you know if i'll join. Don't count me in right now. :)

    Hi Tranch, glad to have a new racer! You'll need to check the rules and get your license here first. Once you get the license, I'll sign you up :thumbsup:

    Ah Montreal. Have great memories of going to this track back in the day to watch the F1 races. Sadly it has not helped my times. I don't what it is about Game StockCar but I run so much slower on this sim than any other. Thank goodness it's such a fun sim to run.

    Andrew, please sign me up.

    It's a default track; make sure you've updated GSC to the latest version.
