    I have been away for awhile... butt... WTF?

    I looked around, but do not see the RACE series of games anymore?

    The forum section for - Racing Simulations > SIMBIN - only has GTR stuff?

    Please tell me where all of the RACE 07, STCC, RACE ON stuff went!

    Eric, thank you for the reply.

    I now see the "fine print" under GTR EVO specific forum - that says:
    - Discuss SimBin's RACE, RACE 07, GTR Evolution, STCC - The Game and RACE On here

    This was not always the case, and I do not come here everyday to notice the forum changes.
    - I've read many of your posts & you are usually much more polite & understanding?

    I think - YES - you need to spell out all the game names on the main forum list!
    - SIMBIN made a clusterxxxx of the series & what works with what...

    My original question comes from two things:

    FIRST - when I try to get my friends into racing, I tell them to go to STEAM and buy SIMBIN RACE ON.
    - they research it a little & the next thing they ask is - what do I need for the "X" mod or "X" track?

    I tell them again to get the RACE ON BUNDLE - but the next questions are always:

    Do all GTR Evo mods & tracks work if you only have RACE 07?
    Do all Race ON mods & tracks work if you only have GTR Evo?

    I don't know how to answer, because I have all of them... and everything works for me.

    I refer them here to read about RACE ON & look at the downloads & they don't see any info about RACE ON!
    - because RACE ON is not on the FORUM page & they are NEW to the SIMBIN series!

    The way the games are listed on the forum does not help clarify the issue.

    SECOND - they ask about events:
    - your events are clearly tagged GTR EVO - OR - RACE ON as separate events for separate games.

    Based on your terse reply - I looked into this further & see your downloads are now listed as:
    - GTR Evolution - Downloads for RACE 07, GTR Evolution & RACE On by SimBin

    However, when you click the link - everything says:
    GTR Evolution Tracks Add-on Tracks 110
    GTR Evolution Cars Add-on Cars 25
    GTR Evolution Skins Custom Car Liveries 1,013
    GTR Evolution Misc Various Files 76

    So the questions remain:
    Do all GTR Evo mods & tracks work if you only have RACE 07?
    Do all Race ON mods & tracks work if you only have GTR Evo?

    And the next question is - can I race GTR EVO events if I only have RACE ON?
    - I tell them NO, but based on your reply - everything about RACE is under GTR EVO so that's - YES?

    I hope you now understand the basis of my questions & realize - we don't ALL spend 24/7 here...
    - new guys need a few more clues...

    If you want new guys to come around, you may need to give them more clues.
    - if not... well, I guess your reply was appropriate...

    I think the logic behind the renaming of the forum section was that many people refer to the game as GTR Evolution, even with the bundle.
