    Special notes:

    Please read the following very carefully before you sign up and watch the movie below:​


    The FD series are all about learning how to drive. There is no competition element included.​

    The focus of tonights training session is about:​

    • How to control the US Muscle cars Camaro (race version)
    • Track recon
    • Over- and understeer
    • Understanding setups
    • Laptime improvement
    At the end of the course I'll guarantee that you will enjoy driving those beast and your laptimes with the US Muscle Car Camaro will drop if you follow the instructions closely, how much time you will cut i can't say but it will definitaly drop.

    The FD series are not the domain for experienced simracers. The amount of slots are limited because of the personal instructions that will be given.

    Therefore its mandatory to have a working microphone to communicate over teamspeak. Its strongly advised to have a steeringwheel as well.

    So if you are the person that needs more training to become a better driver please sign up for tonights training session. Download the FD trainer skinpack and Ill hope to see you tonight for some fun.

    Hello Nick,

    Did you place the skins in this folder: My Documents\Simbin\Race07\CustomSkins as said above ?
    If positive, then you'll find them in 'Muscle Cars' 'Chevrolet' when you have to choose the car in the game.
