    I know a few of the guys have these mods, myself included and I would DEFINITELY be interested in some events with either the T5 or EGT.

    The EGT is still pre-release but VERY drivable imho...in fact id say i drive these cars more than any other in rf2.

    which of the pack are you enjoying the most? I love the bayro (bmw z4) but i think there is an issue with front end down-force which causes the front tyres to wear.

    maybe an event using the free corvette (my least favourite of the URD cars) might be an idea as everyone has access to that car and it might encourage a few more people to buy the full mod?

    I think @Frederic Schornstein tested the cars with Motec and noted that the Bayro had an issue with downforce. Might be wrong though

    yeah ive heard a few mention about its downforce problem, doesn't seem to make it handle badly for me and I tend to have tyre wear off while im driving offline but I can imagine it could cause problems in online racing, hopefully Alles releases a new update soon that fixes this, i think hes got 2 more cars in the works to add to the EGT pack.

    Ok time to kick this off then :thumbsup:
    DT5 Club @ Hockenheim - Sat 10 May 2014
    First event will either be with full version or just the demo (to get more people interested)

    Events with the EGT mod are planned, but that will probably start only after the 6h of Le Mans

    Yes, the car is missing something between 10 to 20% of downforce at the front. You can get similar pace out of the car in qualy mode, but I raced against one in a test race online and after 5 or 6 laps I was so much faster in the Corvette as he in the Bayro, because his front tyres took a beating to achieve the same pace.

    In that leauge the downforce values for the Bayro were adjusted, because nobody would race it as it was massively uncompetetive.

    And the damn thing is still lame. :( It's really really hard to get the pace out of it. It's not impossible but it is not easy.
