    Go on then, although it's been a while since I drove one of these, fancy they could well be a bit on the quick side for that last chicane, I very nearly managed to launch myself back into the pits in a Bentley the other day. The DTM 92's are fun around this place, as are the juniorRR and of course the NSU, all others will require a modicum of feather foot, something unknown to my leaden right foot but hey ho, tiz only a game, right! :confused:

    I've taken part in a few of the AC club races but I'm keen to get involved with R3E, especially considering RDGT uses it. Am I right in saying the Silhouette Series are included with R3E so all I'd need to do is purchase Knutstorp? I doesn't look like it's part of any pack (other than the Premium pack which I'm not quite ready to jump for yet!) so I'm guessing a single purchase of that track is the way to go. Also, I see the different Silhouette Series cars have different engine configurations - is it open to which car you wish to use and are they all fairly evenly balanced? Thanks!

    Yes, the Silhouette cars are free, you'll just have to buy Knutstorp.
    The cheapest way to buy content for R3E is to buy VRP first, and then use them to buy stuff ingame. It's certainly not the most intuitive way to do it but it'll save you some money as you buy more stuff. First go here to buy VRP:
    https://www.raceroomstore.com/shop_en/list_page?cat=24
    You'll get an email with a code to redeem them to your account. In the portal ingame, there will be a section to redeem them. Then you can buy whatever you want from the ingame store.

    As for the cars themselves, they are supposedly fairly well balanced (ex: the more powerful cars may struggle a bit for grip elsewhere and vice versa) but based on the nature of Knutstorp, I'd say power may not be the most important factor here. Since I don't know what car I'll choose myself (I'll probably end up picking the car with the number I like lol), I googled the cars and found this which might help you decide:

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the advice Patrick! Purchased some VRP as advised and grabbed myself both Knutstorp and the "Starter Pack" so I guess that's me well on my way!

    One frustrating issue I've been having is wheel setup. Perhaps this isn't the best place to ask, but I've been searching for ages and found many differing and old answers! I'm using a Logitech G29 and in the Logitech Gaming Software I've set the wheel rotation to 900. In R3E I've set Settings > Vehicle Settings > Wheel Rotation to 900. Once I've selected a car I set Car Setup > Steering Settings > Wheel Range to 900. When I get in the car if I turn my wheel 90 degrees then the virtual wheel appears to turn about 65-70 degrees. Is this normal or should my wheel and the virtual wheel be in the same position? It certainly makes for hard work around a tight twisty track like Knutstorp! I think when I first launched R3E the Wheel Rotation was set to 180 and in the car setup the Wheel Range was set to 540 but that seems all kinds of wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    If my memory serves me right, you turn the arms off that corrects that effect.

    I think there's also an option somewhere that says "match setup".
