    Yes please. If you guys are on the edge to do an oval race, do this one. Homestead is a great track, several lines can be run, provides great racing. @Bram where you at since that first oval race we did? @Tobias Röhner (Homestead or the Shleife, huh?) @Enzo Fazzi @Magic43 @Stefan Woudenberg

    Did some laps, but i have some difficulties to see details of the track. There is almost no texture on the track itself, very little details, no groove.. Got also no feeling of what the car is doing and got no control over the car. Maybe i am used too much to NR2k3, where i ran multiple season at V8thunder.

    I know what you mean, if rF2 is not maxed out, it can be tricky to get a good idea of the rubber when the track is green. I would recommend doing a practice session in private mode with more than twenty AI cars. Press CTRL+X (accelerate the time), let a few moments go by, and you should have a clear racing line on track.

    The previous point might help for that first. Then, make sure you use one of the slow steering ratio in the tuning menu (I would personaly recommend 17:1 for that track). Don't overdrive the corners, take it easy, and it should be quite stable if you use the setup I posted. It's quite basic adjustments like pressures and camber, it's far from perfect, but making sure the tyres are well in contact with the surface is super important is rF2.

    It helped a lot after loading the setup and changing the ratio. :thumbsup:
    Pity i can't make it again. (work related). For the next time i will try to do a last minute enter. Cause then i am more shure that i can make it instead of constantly declining on a last minute.
