    Note 1:Default Skins that come with the WV Golf mod only.
    Note 2: We are using the reverse course due to a posibble jump unsettling the cars on the front straight, if you forget to lift before the sweeping right hander. The GR1 vw golf gives a little lift but the GR2 is more of a tail kick.
    Note 3: Race 1 we will use the GR1 VW Golf
    Note 4: Race 2 we will use the GR2 VW Golf
    Note 5:We are using the SIMBIN lobby for this event. See here how to switch lobby

    hello Ross, give the normal way round the track a blast in both golfs maybe an adjustment in the suspension can sort out the big tail bounce in the GR2 at the end of the straight... i was lifting and it was ok but if your pushing hard it can be a mess
    (even a forward roll):( but its a nice track either way round.. hope you like it :)

    have you tried with a different car .
    You did install the main folder not just the reverse track. (sorry if its a silly question)
    there is a test mode(trace function) if the game keeps crashing iv'e not used it but it might help.

    We are using the REVERSE course so we don't fly that was me dilemma when posting.. At some point in the race it was going to happen so we decided to play safe and keeps the wheels on the deck..
    The REVERSE course keeps the wheels on the deck but you can always have a play and feel the lift at the end of the straight.. lift up the ride hight a couple of clicks and play with the suspension to compress the kick from the rear end . Its all about how late do you brake..
    remember there's a corner just after the hump..:)

    Its a lovely looking track with great detail and lots a elevation, there's some great long banked corners and a section that get slowly tighter before it opens up again. Then there's the drop off this track has it all
    its to good to miss in that roller-coaster ride up to Christmas... ho-ho-ho Bah- humbug :whistling:

    If the Mayans are right and the world is ending on the 21st, I just hope it's after this event is over so I could drive the Golf at least once.

    I'm in!!!

    Maybe I can let you know if it happens, since it will end almost a day earlier in Oz. I'll leave a post if it ended, just to give you all a warning. :p

  16. Final edit...

    I have tried both directions and think that the forward is so nice it would be a shame not to try it in one race. How about running the GR1 forward and the GR2 on the reverse? Just a suggestion, BTW, this is a sign up and what can I say, if this is our last race...Golf is great! ...Thanks.

    Love how they built this Golf! I don't think I would've done much differently.
    Make sure you watch it in HD...

    What a top restoration. :thumbsup:
    Loved everything except the upholstery, I would have gone for black leather, but it wouldn't look as true to the period then.
