    One thing to note, if you`re used to driving modern vehicles in racing sim's, you`ll more than likely damage your engine frequently! :)

    Seriously short shift in pretty much all vehicles in this mod and you will be safe.

    Do you know another 5 people that might like to join?? lol

    If you keep your revs at or 500rpm above the rpm-figure specified in the car selection screen (Power: xxxHP@xxxxRPM) at all times, there is no other reason to short-shift than lack of traction ;).
    For todays car the figure is 6500rpm, meaning you shouldn't go ever higher than 7000rpm in race (in quali & practice the engines can take more abuse!). Not on start, not when airborne and not when you spin... Not inbetween shifts so lift throttle accordingly!
    Also don't trust the shift-lights, they're a bit off on some cars.
    The danger of getting airborne is rather small in the Sprite, though :D.

    @Rupe Wilson @Yves Larose
    Maybe we should add a little note about the cars not having rev-limiters and where to check for the save shiftpoint to the initial post of each race?

    Same problem than Kris : Terrain.tdf missmatch...
    I have installed the track and pit order.
    The game works prefectly on solo mode.
    does anyone know where this mismatch comes from ?

    I just went on without downloading the track (have Cadwell for ages) and all is fine.
    Try this terrain.tdf if you got problems:
    https://www.sendspace.com/file/9bcws1

    Put it into the locations folder that your HGTTC install is using.

    Would it not make more sense to add that to the track file at the top for people, like myself, that didn`t have Cadwell before now?
