    Yep, these are very light, simple cars - essentially VW Beetle 1200 engine and running gear in an ultra light single seater, virtually nothing to set up.

    I've had some great, great fun in these, I remember a couple of birlliant races on B'ham sprint like you say, and Ahvenisto, where the lack of overall power isn't a negative, but a positive boon as everyone stays up nice and tight right through the race.

    I will not be able to do that :(

    Remember people, they run with lot of camber at the back (Like 3.0°) and not much up front (Like 1.0°)...

    And the engine is more precisely based on the 1963 VW Beetle 1200cc Flat 4 :D

    Slow race cars? That must be something for me then :) No idea if I can join the server and I presume it won't be up before Friday. I'll have everything installed & running tonight and will try to connect Friday asap and let you know

    This event is for next week, remember Kris - the 6th May - but as I've postponed the PnG event until Friday 13th, I can put a test server up tomorrow night if you want?

    TBH, the slowness and clean, simple handling of these cars are the whole point. All about the racing :good:

    That would be much appreciated. I can't even remember last time I went online with rF (a very bad experience with feeling & graphics, but I want to give it another shot).

    I'll also post up my ffb settings somewhere , as the defaults can be a bit sketchy.

    I use those from the "Better Force Feedback Tutorial" if it can be of any helps :)

    And how can you fall asleep in these !!!!

    They are just soooo much fun to drive, and also it is VERY tough to race these competitively as you need to drive them differently than other race cars....

    Hint: Drafting... A LOT !
