    All - it's a big download (>180Mb), so don't wait too long to go and get it. I've given you 2 different links, one is No-Grip, the other is GTL4u, they are the same download.

    I'm deliberately going with the 2 slower cars for this first event to allow us to gain some familiarity with the car.

    I'm also testing the higher speed cars against some other potential rivals...

    Sorry all - meant to say the server's up.

    Remember, just do the VW Scirocco 1 & VW Scirocco 1 Gr2 - and it doesn't really matter what track the server is on to work out a gearing/setup, as the top speed part is on both tracks.

    OK, previously owning 1 MK2 Golf GTi and 2 MK2 Jetta GLi dubs, I guess you can say I like VWs. Always wanted one of these but could never get one in good condition at the right price. So I was very excited to see this mod available.

    I took a spin in the slowest one and was pretty impressed. I liked the noisy tires letting me know when I was pushing it too far.

    Then I took the Gr2 out for spin. OMG!!...just the right amount of off-throttle oversteer, barely any on-throttle understeer, great brakes, and awesome 3 wheeling lol (if you go fast enough, your inner rear will lift). And that's with the out-of-the-box setup! Have not tried the faster ones yet but...

    I can't believe I'm typing this, but there's a HUGE chance you will find me in a FWD car in an upcoming league.:confused:

    Initially I felt the Scirocco (group 1 that is) had too much understeer for me. But after some more tweaking it turned out to be great fun. Have to agree with Carlos, the three-wheeling and lift-off oversteer is so addictive and with this mod you can really adjust the stance with the throttle. Haven't even tried the Group 2 yet! A lap around Sprint course in the Group 1:

  15. Really good looking mod! I'm gonna put a couple of offline laps in on the car and track before I decide on signing up or not.
     
  16. Saw the announcement on the homepage of RD so better sign up before it's to late:cool:
