    Track: Monaco 1988 3.328 km ( Download )
    Unpack the Mega download file and place the Locations folder of rfactor where the .exe sits

    Pit box allocation: (Download)
    As you may of see through the week the pit boxes were shared with this download this will sort out the problem back up you original as you will you need it to get on regular server.
    To install unpack and drop into you main rfactor/HistorX folder were the exe sits.

    Pitstop and penalty:
    During the course of the race you might receive a penalty, for those who are not familiar with rFactor you can either receive a drive through or stop and go penalty, in the case of a drive through penalty simply drive through the pit lane under the pit speed limit and resume racing once out of the pit lane. In the case of a stop and go penalty when you will enter the pit lane the pit menu will appear do not do anything simply stop in your pit box and when told drive out under the pit speed limit and resume racing once out of the pit lane.

    to make a pit stop as smooth as possible it is recommended to map the keys you want to use to navigate through the pitstop menu or look at the default keys that are set, it is also recommended to modify your PLR file the following way:

    [ Game Options ]
    Relative Fuel Strategy="1" // Show how much fuel to ADD, rather than how much TOTAL fuel to fill the tank up to
    Smart Pitcrew="0" // Pitcrew does things even if you mistakenly forgot to ask (one example is changing a damaged tire) Change from 1 to 0
    Automatic Pit Menu="4" // brings up pit menu automatically: 0=disabled, 1=upon pit ENTRY, change cockpit menu but do not bring up HUD, 2=pit ENTRY->cockpit & HUD, 3=pit REQUEST->cockpit menu only, 4=pit REQUEST->cockpit & HUD

    only 5 sign up, i know we can do better then that guy's :)
  8. I like to think that I'll be studying during the race time, but that doesn't normally go as per plan, so put me down as a maybe, and hopefully my lack of concentration will make me swing by :D

    P.S. Is there any research suggesting that sim-racing boosts mental ability ? :p

    my line up for this event

    Race 1: Alfa Romeo 1600 GTA '65
    Race 2: Lotus Elan 26R '65
  11. Not sure if I can make it in time for race 1, plus I just realized I've never done a pit stop in this game so I should practice some, but put me as a maybe for this anyways.

    Ok Kjell, The pit speed limit on this track is not really a problem. Just remember to tell your pit crew not to repair damage as this takes ages. On your in lap, request a stop. Then press up on the D pad and left or right till it reads "do nor repair damage" (unless you have no damage, when it wil read N/A). Do it before you enter the pits if you can. Once you stop it's too late. Oh and in the setup tab, set it to one stop and add 0 fuel (it's quicker to fuel up for the whole race before you start).
    Hope this helps. :)

    I was having a great R2 with @Anders Nilsson until my pit stop.
    I requested a stop and set damage to do not repair, but by the time I made my stop, damage had reset to repair all.
    Anders reckons that this happens if you incur further damage after setting to "do not repair".
    I'll try to test this out and, if I can confirm it, I'll post about it in the hints and tips thread.

  19. I enjoyed my evening overall, despite some weird FFB issues at times as well as a DNF in race 1 when I blew my engine on lap 7 or 8 while trying to do a donut to recover from spinning and ending up in the wrong direction :p
