    Think about the hitbox of the porsche... it's about 0.5m wider as the car itself... we should think about taking the porsche out... Even if the Porsche fits me best...

    We had some collisions while trying out the mod... and it's not possible to race close to the porsche...

    I'll give it a go but I'll need to put in some serious practice and still need plenty of help :unsure:
    Am I at a disadvantage with not having a clutch pedal, I'm thinking mainly about saving spins, or is it just a lack of talent :)

    When the server is setup (hopefully this weekend) feel free to join us online - there will often be guys on, especially during the evenings - and we would be more than happy to help you with driving tips and tricks for these cars, as well as setups (many are happy to share). :thumbsup: And join us on TS throughout the week for a whole load of pre-race fun, and we'll try to give you a hand! :D

    Not having a clutch is not a disadvantage - auto clutch is perfectly fine, and is allowed, as well as auto shifting, traction control, and low ABS (if you wish to use these aids). Ultimately these will provide some assistance in preventing spins. And spinning in these cars is almost certainly not down to a lack of talent; we have all done it - they are difficult cars to control at first, but once you've tamed the beast they are absolutely fantastic and great fun to drive. :ninja:;)

    The cars have abs and tc. You can use it. They do in real life.
    The clutch is only necessary at the start. You can assign a button for it.

    Yup, Sebring is good fun. If you don't have the correct mod then don't worry - hopefully we will have sorted a download location by then! :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the advice Daiman & Gijs. If auto clutch is OK I'll have to tame my right foot on corner exit :) I have been using TC @ medium and ABS @ low during off line practice while I try to decide which car to use.

    I tried the Mclaren again. I think it's on wet tires by default. Once on slicks it's was a blast to drive the car. I did my fastest lap with it. :cool:
