    Underdogs are cars which seldom get a run out, either because they're not the most fashionable or maybe not the quickest in their class. This week we're racing the Mini Cooper S1071 on Tuesday, with the Jag Mk 2 on Thursday and the plucky Fiat Abarth 1000TC on Sunday. One car for each evening's events and a single track for the whole week. This should mean that less practice is required, but will by no means detract from the fun.
    Please do your best to join us on TeamSpeak and help us to further improve the fantastic spirit we have here at RD HistorX Racing Club. :thumbsup:

    You have a good point in the summery of Monday nights post.
    So here is the plan
    We will all have to adopt a different driving style to get these beast around the corners, Care is needed.
    I don't want to see a crash fest, we as drivers are better than that.. :thumbsup:
    The cars are big and heavy, and will not drive like a mini. they do slide, but more like a brick. :D
    Give your fellow drivers the room you would expect to have. ;)
    Unnecessary contact will not be tolerated. We have come a long way in our driving over the last few months from what iv'e seen and heard. Lets not spoil it now..

    And don't forget to fill up with fuel they drink more than a mini:roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:

    WE CAN DO THIS :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Ports. TBH I struggled with that and needed help. Even then, it was a bit trial and error trying to interprate the threads I found on the topic. One of the guys can help. Maybe @Stig Bidstrup ?

    Running a dedicated server
    Could be a firewall issue, look for the support folder in the game folder - firewall guide pdf
    I have the problems where my ports will not open in my router modem
    there is a test mode in the game folder - Support/hosting test application

    https://portforward.com/ is a great site for info on how to do it

    Ok, its been a long time i cant remember anything about ports. Just tried joining some servers with my standard rfactor installation with standard tracks cars no mods. Some i can join, some time out, some i get a track GB mismatch or 'server does not recognise car. Now thats weird cause im using the standard cars tracks

    Different versions of tracks, skinpacks etc
    To join RD server you will need to rerplace your rFm file with the one from the Pit Order Fix download from the first post in this thread. Back up your original so you can still join other servers. Unzip (we use 7zip) to your main rF1 folder.
