    Don't forget all the Mini's have launch control, assign a button to it.

    2. Press the gas to the max!
    3. Wait for the start and release the button and you're off. Zooooom away.
    4. Change to 2nd gear as normal and carry on up the gear box.

    Well due to the joys of work I've been missing out on the fun this week! :D

    Sign me up for this one @Nox got my new pedals and really just trying to get used to braking with a load cell so not expecting to be quick but will be fun though :thumbsup:

    Hiya, went with the Clubsport V2's in the end. I'm very happy with them. I did look at a "pro" set of pedals but in all honesty I would be getting ahead of myself because I need to invest in a faster PC first. They do the job very well. Also most of the pro pedals are still being put together or delayed, etc.

    Thought the throttle spring maybe needed to be a bit stronger but you soon get used to it. Just got to get used to pushing on the brake pedal rather than simply pressing it. haha. I also need to mount them solidy so I can put more pressure on them without worrying about them moving. Only did an hour or so yesterday, to make sure it all worked ok. :thumbsup:

    With the pressure required, I can see why on some YouTube videos most users prefer racing shoes or trainers over the high tech socks method...:roflmao:

    I know it's seen as a bit of a gimmick but I did install Fanaleds and switched on the brake motor. Nice little addon and the feeling of a vibrating brake pedal is odd at first (bit like the first time you use FFB through a wheel) but it's a neat idea and something unique :)

    Good couple of races despite having never driven the track before.

    Race 1:
    Only just made the grid after rushing out of the game to download the skin pack. Decent start. Crashed and damaged the steering but managed to fight back to 7th.

    Race 2:
    Another decent start. In 5th behind @Andrew Harper for most of the race before finally sneaking past to take 4th. Almost got 3rd when @Craig Patteson lost it at the final chicane but he was too quick for me.

    Thanks to @Srinath Sundareswaran for guiding me through how to get the skin pack at the last minute. I should have read the forum more carefully :L

    Congrats to the winners and see you all soon

    Thanks for the racing, good fun.

    Had an ok couple of races but for some reason I was getting terrible stuttering in the frame rate and a few times found the screen jumping under braking.

    Had a massive double barrel roll in race one and bashed the Armco in race two. Managed to get to the end with bent steering but had a good race with @Sam Hill and got a good start in race two but had nowhere to go! Haha.

    Well done to the winners. See you all next time.

    I had similar problems with framerate. Was it something to do with the server perhaps?
