    Stable setup for entry and midfield drivers. You can take it to any track and just tweak things for that particular track especially gear ratios and aero. Quick guys will want to tweak a lot. Just wanted a setup to help guys enter our races and enjoy the car:thumbsup::D Ignore the tire apps. They don't report real data when your watching a replay that you've saved:(

    Make sure you get the ACNC Tracks Mod (no cut) (download here)
    A message to all Drivers
    If you run off track, you have to check and see that its clear before you re-enter the track. Do not just keep the gas pinned and pull back on track.
    When entering the track from the pits stay off the racing line until you are up to speed and do not race on your out lap. Let other drivers by in qualifying.
    On re-entering the track stay off the racing line until you are up to race speed and do not block any fast approaching car. Remember, you've made the mistake by going off so let them by cleanly.
    Golden Rule
    1. Be 100% sure it's not your fault and just carry on like nothing happened and take the risk of being banned for 30 days.
    2. Play on the safe side and wait for the affected drivers, knowing 100% sure you will not get a ban.
    Track limits
    1. No more than 2 wheels over the white/yellow line without a complete lift of the gas please if it is safe to do so.
      You will be penalized if you break our rules
    Note: Please use your full real name in teamspeak. Not doing so may result in you being kicked from the server if an admin cannot identify you as a premium member.

    :confused::confused:Bugger! that's the day of the biggest racing event in OZ, the Bathurst 1000:inlove::thumbsup:, as it will be Sunday 8th downunder.
    I'll be up @ 5.30am consuming :coffee::coffee: and glued to my 65" tv screen for the next 8-9hrs, not moving except maybe to take a leak or :poop: during a commercial break.
    So I apologize now for not being on the grid, but I will be totally oblivious to the rest of the world, as I have been for the past 36 yrs on that most Iconic of Aussie race days;):D:thumbsup:
    GO FORD:thumbsup::thumbsup:, GO Scott McLaughlan:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I'd love to have you. We may have to wait until the next weekend though, due to the 12hr RDLMS Valero seires. I'm still checking on this and I'll let you know something asap:thumbsup:

    @Andrew Scott and @JoelK we won't be racing again until Saturday, Oct 14, 2017. The RDLMS series takes priority over everything else. Thanks for understanding.

    I'm a yes at this point, my neck issue is still giving me problems though, actually gotten worse over the weekend:thumbsdown:, I'm off to the doc this arvo to have things investigated, probably end up having an Xray or CT scan, so I'll no more mid week, when I get back to the doc for the results. My gut instinct says it isn't good though, it's never been this painful before, had a smashing headache on Sunday:(:(

    Ok Brandon, it's just me and you. It's obvious guys don't like the Lotus and I can't count on anybody else showing up. It's a shame too, because Lotus has many cars that are great to race. I'm about ready to go in an entirely different direction with Saturday nights. Anyway, I never get to run with you so I'll set it up and run it if you want to, but I'm afraid it may boring. I'm going to let you make the call.

    We'll see what happens tomorrow, seems like people often wait to sign up until race day so maybe we'll get a few more. I'll probably join up and shoot the breeze with you for a bit, regardless.
