    Flyer week 32 Chevy Camaro @ Mid-ohio.jpg
    This week 32 we will start with the new released Chevrolet Camaro GT3 car, to race this week on Mid-Ohio.

    The American muscle car is equipped with a 7.9L V8 engine paired to a Holinger gear box packing 650 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. This car drives like you expect from an American car, but is surprisingly very good to handle and to catch the car when spinning out. Making sure you get the car in a straight line out of corners as soon as possible and good throttle control will give you a very enjoyable driving experience around Mid-Ohio.

    Mid-Ohio with chicane will be the track were we will release these beasts, perfectly suited for this car with the banking in the corners, making the car turn into the corners very easily. Come and join us this week and show what you can perform with this combination, with using the same combo this week we will be assured of great exciting races throughout the week and even a higher standard than we already have.

    Schedule
    The GT server will be online all week for practicing. The server is setup with an extended first practice session. Please only use this practice session when racing online for fun, do not vote it round unless being asked to do so.

    Unfortunatly the places were we work don't permit us to acces the servers from our dayjobs, we will set the server online asap as soon as they get home from work:)
    After that it will be running the whole week, and next week and in the future it will be online from monday morning.:thumbsup:

    Yep, the idea is that everyone gets used to a certain combination, which invites to join multiple times during the week if you want too, because you already did some practice in races earlier that week, and the racing gets to a very good level because of the practice. And offcourse to give more oppurtunities fitting to your own schedule, or race the whole week if you feel like it:).

    Made a new mod and uploaded it and setup the server.

    Please redownload the mod and uninstall the previous one.

    Tried 30+ times to drive a lap, but this car is just....... pffffttttt....... horrible.... to say it with nice words....
    Spinning at 30km/h... 2nd gear.. with 10% throttle.... really????

    Will wait for next week and hopefully some car/track combo that suits me better. :)
