Anybody else having issues with the second gear at close to top revs ( not red lining yet ) making the car kick hard to the left/right.... even on a straight. I have to be slow reving up without losing control .... other drivers will pass me quickly. I watched some AI cars and they were able to red line in second and no car kick when getting close to the top revs???
I think it's the infamous "Turbo Boost Kick in Ass from deepest Hell" that you are struggling with.
You can adjust that turbo boost mapping in the setup or, if binding keys to it, also while driving.
Might help. Full boost only needed on straights. In corners or corner combinations you are not slower with, f.e., set to 4. Much more drivable with lower settings.

Hmmm, try using the link for F1 '86 mod to download from steam. A few people have had this. Most unusual. :(

The race was great, these cars are a boatload of fun!
Unfortunately, I blew the engine while running in 4th place due to a bad downshift and overrevving :)

Yeah, great cars but the redlining in downshifts could blow the engine way too easily.
Every other representation of the turbo era F1 is tame by comparison with this mod...these are the benchmark for me.
