    Twists, turns, elevations and concrete walls all bid you welcome to Australia's most famous circuit. Just one mistake can cost you dear at this iconic racetrack, add in tyre wear and fuel use and this will be a challenge. And of course this being Thursday you have to do it twice.

    I'd love to race at the Mountain but next thursday I'm working :/ I want my old job back, current situation is getting unacceptable because the way work shifts are distributed (randomly, it seems) and I can't make any long-term plans. Sorry, very much off topic.

    Possible, but highly doubtful.
    Love the track, but for the life of me I can't figure these old-physics cars out.
    And the FWD isn't helping any. :D

    Seriously Lars, I think the WTCC 2014 cars are very drivable and of course Bathurst is a track you know really well.:)

    What wheel do you have? Maybe I can share my settings? I know it's no audi TT but they do the job

    I appreciate the offer, but the problem isn't the wheel-settings (G27 btw).
    The settings work beautifully with the updated physics, but with the old ones I have absolutely no feel for what the tires are doing.
    I can be ambling merrily along only to suddenly find myself in the gravel because I've lost grip without warning.
    Now, I could obviously tinker with the settings to find something that would allow me to race the old-phys cars, but that would screw up the settings for the new-phys ones.
    And since a ) the old ones will be updated at some point and b ) I usually race GTs I'd rather not mess with them. :)
    I did manage to make the Chevy Cruze somewhat drivable, but on paper the set-up looks absolutely mad. And the arse-end of that car is still all over the place.
    Looking at that Chevy going through Bathurst is like witnessing a one-car conga-line. :D

    All wtcc14 are tail happy, specifically I'm braking that's an easy fix, and 100 brake presure and 67/33 bias. The rest of the slippery rear (off throttle oversteer) works great to correct corners...
