    Don't know if i've said this but here's one tip from the WTCC: During warmup, drive normal outlap, then drive one "hotlap" using the off-driveline part of the track (the part of the track you have to use if someones already occupying the driving line..).. This is to make first lap safer if you know when to brake off-drivingline.

    @Jonas I would gladly join RD races if the damage was set to 60% like Presto Servers. It was so annoying to start the race then after 1 lap put a wheel on the grass, rub a wall and the wheel fall off (I say rub but it was a bit of a bump, but the same bump would only cause slight suspension damage on Presto servers). I also think new comers would get a false sense from this, it's what put me off when the mod first came out, things happen so much faster that 100% damage is just to risky for us newbies, well me at any rate. In fact I would probably not be racing here if damage was any higher, due to the mistakes that creep into my racing.

    Has anyone else noticed the Presto servers are set to A-1 ring instead of Watkins Glen. Did I miss the memo??

    @Henrik - Lost connection and other local problems in relation to our races we chose to see as ”problems with the race craft”. We have turned random failures off on the server. So to be 100% certain that one will never have a car “braking down” during a race is not possible, but we can all do what we can to minimize this possibility, much like it is in real f1. I do not think we have more LC and stuff like that than real f1 have cars not completing races due to engine problems or other things braking down.

    @Marko - It is only natural that your motivation goes down when you see all your practice is in vain when you do not get to complete a race due to other people’s mistake. My hope is that you believe the next 5 races will serve you much better than the first 5, and thus regain your motivation for the rest of the season. You are in my eyes a perfect member, it is obvious that you understand perfectly what it is all about; you show for all the races and are always prepared to deliver a solid race and you execute the incident reports better than anyone else. If we were to lose you it would be a big loss for the whole league.

    One way I maintain my motivation when everything goes wrong is that I think that if nothing else it builds character to yet again climb onto that horse :)

    I have to pass on this weeks main race unfortunately.​
    UNI work comes first, just have alot on my plate right now.​

    With no practice whatsoever I would be a liability at this track ;)

    Is Monza [or another track] in the server tracklist? Abu Dhabi has always had that error if hosted on its' own.

    lol, was just looking for what version we use.. I'll check what version i have in my archives if it's newer...EDIT: It's the same, i got some AI patch but we don't need it, that may cause the confusion and mismatch error (two different AIWs)

    Unfortunately I have to pass on the coming races, I believe I will be able to make it to Hockenheim.

    Too much UNI work these days.
    Only one month away from the exams.

    Will pop in and see how the races are going though -
    good luck to all of you in the coming races! :)
