  12. Yeah it's a note for the driver to do some coast tests in a practice session. Not strictly relevant to racing, but a fun detail :)

  15. I like the cockpit view. Looks pretty cool
  16. I love little things/details like that, but I'm wondering (like you said) how relevant to a race that would be, and whether it would be there all the time during all sessions? (I expect it will).

    I mean, I need a shopping list when I'm at the supermarket, but I don't paste it to the windscreen when I'm driving there and back home ;) I'm sure it will become almost invisible after a while, but you get my drift.
  17. It's something of a fixed detail as you suggest, but won't be in all the cars. As it's part of the window texture it'll also be optional on the templates so you don't have to have it on custom cars if you don't want it :)

    I drive cockpit in everything I run. ARCA,rFactor and 2,GSC,NR2K3,GTR2,GTL,Race07,Grid need I go on. I like the realizm. Mini's look great :thumbsup:
  19. I think the LED display the gear change could be more visible to not disturb the pilot :) see the image
    Thanks Reiza!

  20. Gorgous..Can't wait for this. I absolutely love Mini's and GSC 2012. Since I haven't league raced here yet, I take it I can't participate? I'm a clean and pretty darn good driver, but I don't wanna break your rules on having to start off with other leagues first.

    Registration i'm sure is filled by now. it's not going anywhere anyways and I hope to join the series later down the road.

    Bram, any time zone we can look for this car to be available?
