    Special event celebrating the 101st Indy 500
    Time to install Teamspeak and take part in a special club race while you enjoy the banter. Ask as many questions about simracing as you like and don't be afraid as there are no stupid questions. The worst thing that can happen is that you'll become a better driver :)

    Wait what is this?
    To celebrate the 101st Indy 500 race we are running a special Cart Extreme race. We will be using the Fontana Speedway track as it is updated to the latest AMS standards. All you need is a copy of Automobilista and two free mods!

    Who can join?
    All premium members can sign up for this event. Sign up below and make sure to tag fellow community members who you think are up for the challenge!

    Something's come up :(
    We understand that things can come up that prevent you from racing. Please give as much notice as possible so that others can take your place. You must sign out no later than 1 hour before practice starts.

    How do I install and use the mods?
    1. Download the mods using the links below
    2. For the track (Fontana) copy the "USPits" folder from inside the downloaded ZIP file to "{STEAM-FOLDER}\Automobilista\GameData\Locations"
    3. For the car copy both the "GameData" and the "Series" folder from inside the downloaded ZIP file to the "{STEAM-FOLDER}\Automobilista" folder
    4. When you select your Cart make sure you select and install the "SUPERSPEEDWAY" option.
    Which car/engine is best?
    The Cart Extreme mod includes chassis and engines that behave differently. Here is some advice from our resident expert @Tobias Röhner
    Engines: Anything with Honda and Cosworth engine is fast on the oval due to HP advantage.
    Chassis: The Swift seems to be the fastest chassis, followed by Reynard. Penske and Lola are a bit slower.

    Setups:
    We hope to be able to supply a good starting setup for people to use (time permitting). Please do post your setups here for everyone's benefit!

    Here is my setup with optimised aerodynamics. Rake is 0mm around the whole track. Front and rear ride heights are 18mm in the turns. The setup can be used with every car, but balance is best with the Swift.

    That's a shame. We got a survey last year, more people were interested with that starting time during summer… It is hard to get everyone together at the same time! :cautious:

    OK, While it's not "Indy" and certainly not as tough, this should be a good race if we can all find good speed.. The cars don't hit the walls much here and not a big deal most of the time if you do. Likewise getting wheels on the flat, inner part of the track is not a killer either. The race can be completed with plenty of fuel remaining, tires as well, no need for a stop!
