    I was sure, I know the track, but it is something compleletly different from rFactor1 version, which we drove couple weeks ago at VHC. I am learning it again :)

    This is super fun but really hard to master.
    Every time i think i know which corner is coming up i'm in for a surprise and there goes the little Palatov through the mountain. :D

    Jip, But it's rewarding if you make it above the tree-line. :rolleyes:

    That's the part were you don't want to screw up. :D

  10. Wow, that torque steer is horrible! I can't remember the last time I had to fight a car this much. Even on the straighter parts of the course it's difficult to line it up for the next corner properly with how it wanders.

    There's a lot of help in the diff preload. I settled on 3 for my current PB. It's a good way to adjust the ways the car yaws in corners in response to throttle input. But in my experience, too high makes the car understeer with surprises (I tried as high as 6, way too much)

    I'm still blaming the crest in the road for a majority of the tighter-handling cars' woes on this course.
    I think I've recruited someone to help bring the crest down to a reasonable level. Fingers crossed!

    @Matej Lakota , you do realize that you beat Sebatien Loeb's IRL record of 8m 13.878s, right?
    LAY OFF THE RED BULL! :)

    This is some crazy scary combo. Whoever designed this must've wanted to do a suicide.
