  2. Is the drivability with the difference in ping between european and american drivers on the RD server in the NL acceptable?

    Saleem or someone hopefully will correct me if I'm wrong but to my understanding all RD servers are based in the Netherlands, the event location just applies to the time it is scheduled for.

  6. Yes, I'm aware that the race schedule is primarily designed to accomodate players from US/EU/AU regions. As in the AC server overview: all RD servers are located in the Netherlands.
    I asked about your experience racing with drivers from different time zones. Did you notice a high ping (yellow or even red arrow above the car) or a 'jerky' car of players from different zones you raced with on RD servers?
    I guess I should use simpler language, sry.

    EU vs US connections issues have been dramatically improved with the last updates. Drivers that were waving all over the place two weeks ago are now very much raceable again :thumbsup:

    yeah I got to learn how to setup a car but I'm starting to scratch the surface of learning. Man it was so fun having that close race today. I'm still thinking about it now.

    I think it would help us to run more with the track day cars to get a grip on the setups.

    Even though earlier times would *seem* better for me, they aren't necessarily better. The wife wouldn't really me running straight from dinner to go race :) . She is an early sleeper so the later times are normally clear for me.
