    Had a great time online, but had to bail out of the race as my throttle paddle didn't work, which made me loose speed every lap. I had changed the deadzone to 50% but that didn't solve the problem. :(

    I stayed online and took away many penalties. I saw some close racing and great fires. :D

    I will need to fix my hardware before the next race. Thanx for the race guys.:thumbsup:

    I know I bitched and moaned for most of the night but this was actually pretty fun. Though I have to thank (like most of us) @Stefan Woudenberg, if he didn't have issues and was forced to quit we all probably would've gotten DQ'ed because of the bullshit penalties. I don't think that we need to remove safety cars though. Just disable the penalties.

    Yap, thx @Stefan Woudenberg for staying around and making it possible to bring it to the line :thumbsup:
    Had a great Race! @Chark chased me very hard, was great fun. Too bad @Tobias Röhner fired it up, may had been a interesting last lap...
    Had to do some Highlights, especially that 4 wide pass :D

    Glad to hear that you enjoyed the event! :D

    If you guys could let me know what changes should be made regarding penalties and the like that would be incredibly helpful. Then I can make appropriate adjustments to the server configuration for the next event. :thumbsup:

    It's tricky @Daiman Patel , because removing penalties altogether would also remove the speeding in pitlane penalty. I also think that the penalty system is directly tied to the flag system, which means that if we want to remove penalties it might mean no more safety cars which we dont want.
    Basically we want ( I think ) to remove all penalties except pitlane speed, and keep the flag rules (for saftey cars).

    In retrospect, I think the gear ratios we were running were still rubbish. Would've made the most sense to have a fourth and fifth gear for normal driving and the 6th as the draft gear. Gotta take note for that for a potential RD Indy 500 :p
