    I was hoping someone would post about downloading for there. I could get it from there easily but using IE in RD's DS server I couldn't even get it, good thing I found that it was already there!

    I did a preliminary setup on two cars last night. I hope I can get a few more 0.001 seconds out of them today :D

  9. I am now driving 1:xx.xxx, steady, I changed the tire pressure and gearbox so far and I am using the RD setup guide but if anyone has tips for me, I am using the 2007 BMW E..(russian cars, 3 of them total in class).

    Staff edit; we try to not discuss laptimes in the forum so as to not discourage drivers from entering as well as keep Club events fun events.

    Sorry will not make it tonight in time. Dropbox link is as slow as the first one.
    I will not have the chance to try a single lap. Pity:-(
    Was booted for cheating as I currently have 1.0 instead of 1.1 I think.

    Any ideea why i get booted as possbile cheat ?
  12. Yes, your track files are probably corrupt or not correctly installed. Also make sure you have version 1.1 and not 1.0(comes in weisebude thingy).

    It was set to be an interesting race as the small field was lapping well. "Monday we found this track to be deadly on the first lap and it happened again today as quick drivers, high speeds and ARMCO barriers made of Carbonite meant an end to most all of us in a short time. I managed almost half way. Bummer, I got away from the ARMCO with damage but managed to kill myself at moss's by entering to fast :(.

    Maybe I can do better on Thursday :thumbsup:

    Me and Reggie were the only ones to avoid any incidents and luckily we made a good race of it as it could have been a very lonely night. I think less than a second separated us after 45 minutes. Don't know if he was holding back or not as he's normally off into the distance. I enjoyed the chase none the less :D

    Thursday: I was having a great race until I realized that Justin was running on old bald tires, only a split second quicker than I was and making small mistakes. With nothing to lose I pushed without stopping, recovering from only a few small mistakes and seeing the gap to him incrementally close. Then, all of a sudden a small mistake turned into a catastrophic mistake and I was sitting with a dead engine, again! Worth the effort I think.

    Thanks to the solid crew of drivers that have been trying to remove all the tire barriers and ARMCO that surround Mosport. Your presence has been very welcome! Can't wait for the "Mini mishap at Mosport".

    Yep! after ruining my race on lap 2 or 3 by running wide at turn 2 (we all know how deadly that is) I considered myself very fortunate to only have suspension damage and a front right puncture :(
    Managed to hobble back to the pits and use this as my one and only stop, knowing full well I was going to have to cope with the demanding bends of Mosport with very worn tyres by the end of the race. Knowing how deadly this track can be, it was worth pushing on because of the high chance of some extra stops or DNF's from other drivers and that proved true and earned me a 3rd place.
    Those fast bends are very tricky on very worn tyres I can tell you!!!

    Those fast curves pretty tough on us less than great drivers too!
  20. They are very deadly yet great fun! Although not many good lines through them.
