    Class: Mini 1310cc download
    Track: Birmingham GP / Lime Rock Mountain / Mid Ohio Chicaned
    Practice: 20 min
    Qualification: 10 min
    Race: 12 laps
    Note1: Click here to read the password and golden rules!
    Note2: The 1310 skinpack will be used - all participants should install this pack - download
    Note3: IMPORTANT INFO
    If you are using a default skin - ONLY USE CAR 2, CAR 4 or CAR 544.

    Using either of the others makes the session go nuts and you show as driving the "GTL Safety Car" and it keeps loading and then crashing.

    Quick little babys, aren't they. Somewhat more demanding to drive too, but still hang on like hell.

    Better sign me up for this Stu. :aus:

    I had a few laps at Lime Rock & Birmingham.

    Beat the top Cortina time @ Lime Rock, beat the top Alfa time @ B'ham.

    These is rapid.

    By the way, I've already done the 1310 Sprint Pack Skins, and all work perfectly :D. Link in the top post.

    See that? Right there?

    Hubris, that is. :doh:

    There was a problem in the 66 mini which caused a CTD. I'm Investigating the issue - I'll re-do the download when I've fixed it.

    edit: turns out the 66 mini was my fault, but there are also CTD issues with some of the others which aren't my fault, and will need some further investigation and potential sneakiness to fix.

    Chaps - there are some unusual skin problems with some of the sprint pack cars, even though they were all converted the same way as per the mod instructions.

    To be fair, and to give me enough time to get it absolutely right, we'll go with default skins only for this race.

    I had a try on both, Hans, and preferred BeepBeep's as well (I can't believe I just typed that). I went in to have a look at it, and the front wheels are @ 55 psi, which is about double the normal pressure.

    I noticed on XD that, on a normally pressured set up, the middle was waaay lower than the outsides, suggesting too low a pressure, but 55 is mad high. Maybe that's how it needs to be, as I went up to 35 front & 32 rear and set the times I mention above.

    Funnily enough, the rear tyres seemed to take all the battering when I was driving, the left rear tyre at both Lime Rock & Birmingham quickly going from cold to green to yellow to red inside 3 laps, which is a bit different.

    Just something we'll eventually get used to I suppose.

    But these Minis are real Alfa / Cortina contenders / beaters - they're brutally quick.

    I have a setup or two I worked up for these suckers some time ago, so I'll dig them out and post them tomorrow, hopefully.
    With this setup, I was easily able to beat the Alfa / Cortina / Falcon / Mustang around most tracks.

    From memory, you have to be careful about the tyres overheating too quickly, or you will put in a couple of really quick times and then watch the tyres melt over a race distance. I've actually used my setup for an on-line enduro event of about one hour.

    I have posted a couple of 1310 Mini setups that I found lying about in my files. These are two that I have used for on-line races in these cars, one was a long race, the other was a sprint race.

    I haven't tested them on the tracks listed here, so maybe they will need some modding, but they might be interesting as a starting point.

    Gents - I've got a build of the Sprint Pack skins that I'm very confident of - should we try it out on this event anyway, so everyone has their own mini?

    Please let me know
     
  20. sure. i don't see any reason why not. and again thank you for your work.:good:
