    Ah, I thought this might be the case - my bad! :whistling: I have now restarted the server, and corrected the issue; setups are now fixed, but upgrades may still be applied (I can turn these off as well, if you like). Thanks for the heads up Stefan. :thumbsup:

  17. Arent the upgrades assigned through the track. So you can choose what you want you will join always with the correct upgrades?

    @Daiman Patel would it be possible to lock the setup changes while having a custom one? What I mean is everyone uses the same setup (which I think is a great idea for oval club racing) and cannot change it, but that setup is not the default one.

    I'm asking this because I've tried the default setup, and the steering ratios (wheel rotation and steering lock) are a bit to sensitive for a superspeedway this size, IMO. Talladega will make it possible (and even necesary) to run three wide, compared to Daytona where it was a bit tricky, and that means that people need to steer the car exactly where they want, which is a bit hard with the default setup, because it's a bit twitchy.

    I can provide a stable setup that is kind of neutral and should be easier to drive (see below), or maybe you can just unlock the steering setting only on the setup if that's possible. I know it's more work for you mate, so it's fine if that's not possible. ;)

    EDIT: if anyone wants to try the setup in single player, just install it to:
    rFactor 2\UserData\player\Settings\Alabama500

    Daiman left the upgrades unlocked, so we should still be able to pick one of the two slow superspeedway steering ratios from there. Were you using that when running the default setup? Or is it still twitchy with that upgrade? I haven't done any laps yet so not sure how either setting handles :roflmao:

    Steering lock and wheel rotation are still available when the setup is locked.
    Also, sign me out, my premium expired. :)
