    Fantastic car to drive. Way better than all the modern cars. Now I have to decide whether to battle the Tipo or the T70 around the ring. Hard decision.

    I would guess at 'rip', and it's gone from their website :whistling:

    Really top level indeed. Thank you!
    Looks accurate and drives like I imagine the real car does.
    Only negative (small one) is the sound, not really deep enough but I can live with that.
    :thumbsup:
    The Birdcage first caught my imagination when the Camoradi car won the Nurburgring 1000K, then went on to clean up in the US. The all time favorite Tipo 61 for me is the Le Mans 'Streamliner', a very clever attempt at minimizing the windscreen height introduced at LM.

    Looks great!
    Although, the interiour could use some more ambient occlusion baked on the textures.

    Nope, but Südschleife did fit it greatly.
    Loving it!

    Just checked, even with clutchless shifting.
    Broke the gearbox after 7 corners...
    But yeah, heel and toe is only needed when going from 2 to 1...
    Odd.

    Just stunning work. Tremendous, challenging fun to drive. The only problem is that now I want more, many more vintage 50's and 60's cars.

    That was a rip from rFactor's Historix mod. The model was one of the few scratchbuilt cars in Historix.

    Had my first go in the car, it's good fun! I was surprised at how effective the brakes are but I guess 600kg doesn't take much stopping.

    Here's an onboard around Goodwood

    You made it look easy, Andy :D Also bump up saturation for more green Goodwood :D I think I have made it too desaturated, or perhaps had saturation up when I made it, not sure. Though I know many people for some reason like less colour.

    Thanks! Out braked myself into Lavant corer a bit but other than that it was ok, I think. I just leave saturation on 98%, I don't bother changing it track to track. I used to run it even lower but the last time I felt some track or other looked a little cartoonish and turned it down was way before SOL and CSP so maybe I should give 100% a go again.
