    In a couple of weeks im going to introduce a time trail event that will have a server set up from Friday to monday (over the weekend) for a couple of weekends to let you guys let rip on the Green Hell
    I have found a 1970 NORDSCHLEIFE foundHERE
    I am thinking Porsche 934-5 found HERE

    I will post the times of the drivers after the weekend,
    this will be driven in free practice mode and only times from this session this will be used.
    So download and give it a try,
    maybe we will do a club event if i get enough drivers twisting my arm to race it... :)

    Leave your thoughts below..:)

    Happily driving a "girly" car

    neat idea Rupe
  5. Are you going to be changing the car each week? Or using the same car more than once so people see someone's better time and feel the need to beat it during the next weekend?

    Time Trials are fun. Myself being an insomniac:thumbsdown: it gives me something to do for a while after the girls go to bed :D:thumbsup:

    Cool, I already have 70 Nords too!

    Well if we are going to have a time trail it's great track to start with. Think we should just keep this open just for fun with free laps no need for club/league type events, long tracks and hill climbs will tick the boxes.:)

    Rupe you will handle the times so no need for us to post ?

    I don't get many weekends off but this will be "something for the weekend sir" :D

    The server will record the times in its results, so i can just Copy and Paste.. :)
  9. Suppose theres nothing to stop a few of us getting on the server at the same time and running a sort of informal 'race' either. better than organised race because we can wait up for each other too - feel free to ask if anyone want to 'play' rather than just hotlapping - sometimes I just wana aimlessly lap sometimes fun with others is more fun!

    Edit - driven this car in rFactor DRM mod - its nuts! Edit - 2 dunno if it is the same but sure itll be great !!

    These 934/5's are not as hard to drive as the 935's on DRM and also easier to drive than the ones from Team21

    It's a million-to-1 chance, but it just might work Premium

    I can vouch for this...I accelerated out of the pits and went forward, and not around in a circle :p

    With the Porsche 935's @ Monza, the whole grid crept away in 3rd gear at the restart. The first time we all (including the alien drivers) spun on the spot :laugh::redface:. Funniest start ever

    This is being held in our Club, using Club Rules, and should be driven in that spirit.

    The Porsche 934/5

    By the end of 1976 the 934 was the dominant car in the European GT serious.
    It was now also allowed in both Trans Am where it had proved very successful and by the end of the year in IMSA also where it seemed not quite up to the new tube frame AAGT cars like the Monza.

    For 1977 IMSA approved several important changes to the 934, less weight, bigger wheels and tires, and a 935 rear wing. Add to this that it was now known that raising the boost to some 22 pounds could produce close to 600hp with little reliability compromise, and the 934 became a very competitive package. Trans Am would also allowed this version of the car to run.
    Porsche itself built 10 of these special “IMSA spec” cars, this evolution of the standard 934 was soon nicknamed the 934 and a half, or simply the 934-5
    Some teams also converted standard 934s to the 934/5 spec and many would go farther still first adding the 935 rear fenders and eventually the complete 935 body package.

    Now the Porsche teams once again had a real contender for the IMSA championship and they would need every bit of it as the Monza now had a full 6 liter 600hp engine of it own and full group-5 style body work including a duel element wing.
    934/5s would win 5 rounds in IMSA in 1977 but would finish 2nd to the Monza in the championship.
    They would win the Trans Am championship.

    Porsche 934/5 for GTL

    There are 3 versions of the car included
    1st the Standard 934/5 cars with the simple round fender flairs
    2nd 934/5 with 935 rear fenders
    And finally cars with the complete 935 bodywork
    All 3 have slightly different physics though they are all very similar.

    Though no version of the 934 was ever said to be easy to drive the 934/5 was a quite a bit better than the standard 934. The IMSA changes addressing the shortcomings of car quite well.
    Still a bit clumsy in slow corners it is much more stable in fast corners then the standard car.
    Basic behaviour is power on under steer at least until you break the rear loose with power.
    Mid corner throttle lift will bring the car bake to neutral balance. Though if you are not paying attention the tail will go around you.
    It was said that 934/5s were often driven by lifting off and then going back to throttle many times through long duration corners.
    The 934/5s biggest strength ageist the GTO Monza is mid range power. The sooner you got back to it the better.
