    @Kurupt CDN Maybe we'll do a special event with on one of these days. I just don't want people retiring due to one tap of the wall, the track is already hard enough for most to drive on. :p

    To be fair Gerardo, last time we did a Bathurst club race with full damage, more than half the field retired due to tapping the wall. The walls in the R3E version of Bathurst are extremely sensitive and cause terminal damage with the lightest of touches so I figured it would be best to turn it off to give everyone a chance to at least finish the race.

    However, I will leave this open to everyone who has signed up, if you guys are OK with enabling damage, I have no problem in doing that.

    I see the point, but especially in Bathurst (and the Nordschleife) the possibility of wall riding makes some people less careful (to say the least) and turns the race unfair to those who are careful enough to have a clean race.

    Alrighty then, I did a quick test, and while the damage is definitely not as sensitive as it used to be (pre-november) patch, there remains high possibility of retirements due to accidental crashes due to the nature of the track. My personal opinion has always been that for these club races it would be in our best interests to configure the game to give everyone the best chance at completing the race, especially on difficult tracks such as Bathurst.

    So, I will enable damage on the server for this one, and I hope everyone will be able to complete the race. Please do not be discouraged if the mountain takes names and swallows you whole. :p
