    Sign me in please. @Otune @Simon Bacon @Tobias Röhner @Bram @TTupsi @Magic43 let's go to a legendady track!

    Attached is a setup (as usual, not the fastest, but quite stable and easy on tyres). I would recommand using the steering lock below normal in the tuning menu. For the corners after the long straights, brake to get the car turning, for the corners after the short straights, lifting off should be enough. Make sure to slow down quite significantly not to destroy your tyres, as it's easy to overdrive the car.

    IMPORTANT

    The server has been updated so that @Chark's setup is the default, fixed setup. :geek: I have just tested it myself, having set up the server, and it seems to have worked as intended this time. If you could also test and verify this it would be incredibly helpful. :thumbsup: It may appear as though the default setup is selected - the UI might display a depressed "Default" button in the Garage menu - but this is correct since the default setup for the server is being used.

    The reason why this probably didn't work last time is because I made the change whilst the server was still running, and upon restarting the server these changes were overwritten... :whistling: So in actual fact there was no definition of the default setup at all on the server. :redface:

    @Daiman Patel the setup I've seen when I hopped into the server a few minutes ago was definitely mine. It worked! :thumbsup: Also, thanks for the explanations.

    IMPORTANT!

    Unfortunately our servers are yet to be updated to the latest build of rF2 (Build 1052), therefore if you are using Steam or have already performed the update then you shall be unable to partake in this event. Apologies for the inconvenience. We are working as quickly as possible to get this sorted before the rest of this week's events.

    Just got in, can't join the server, I'm getting a 'server and client builds do not match' message :( Guessing it's something to do with Steam updating my rF2 like crazy atm. Sorry guys.

    Edit...just read Damien's post :(

    Sorry mate. Can't do anything about it unfortunately, as I don't have administrative rights on the server to perform the update. :( We'll be back again next week though! ;)

    I think it's kinda stupid that the rFactor 2 club organiser isn't allowed to update the game on the server. It's a shame, I was looking forward to the Daytona race :(

    I'd blame ISI in this case for forcing users to have elevated privileges in order to perform the install. :cautious: This is not a problem on a personal computer, but it causes issues when using remote servers that are locked down to prevent mischief from ensuing. Sorry mate!
