    Well I already took the leaderboard for this I suppose I can put some time in and see if I can improve it. Or I can trying to put the other three cars at the top of the leaderboard. And pick the fastest one and share the other three. No guarantees though I might not do it. But I'll have a go. Like the cars, like the track, what could go wrong.

    Count me in Mr Ross.

    I'm make up for the lack of signing up for the last race, hence the long post this time:roflmao:.

    Oh dear, this doesn't look good. Hope we can get one or two more drivers in. Any dropouts and I don't think this race would be worth running.:(

    Damn this nice weather, stealing all our drivers! (Actually, I love this weather... long may it continue!)

    Of course, last time we ran Road America the grids were surprisingly small too. Not sure why, it's a great track.

    Oh dear, looks like this one isn't happening then. :(

    I might stick a test server up using the new DTM `95 Merc for anyone interested in trying it out.

    Well I'm not seeing cancelled written anywhere so I'm assuming it's still on. But it doesn't really matter to me either way, so whatever.

    Added it to the thread title.

    I'm trying to get that Merc on a server but it's not showing up as an option for some reason. :O_o:

    Well I didn't want to influence others, but the only reason I'm not saying these are my least favorite cars in R3E is that the Cayman GT4 took that special place in my heart.:roflmao:

    Yeah about that new Merc. Stupid car just like the last 2 they released. You can't set it up for your style you just have to drive it as it is. The default set-ups is for all the tracks. You just can't seem to stop the back-end coming around limited amount of downforce that you can use from 18 to 25 just don't get that whatsoever. I can understand having a limit. Since when you cannot put one on your rear wing in real racing or otherwise. I put the traction control back to front for some stupid unknown reason. Of course you can fix that yourself, but why? And of course you cannot adjust the suspension a key component which to get it to handle properly. There may have been limitations on suspension adjustment back in 1995 but they did have it all the same. Still no tyre compounds. That's a year since that started I guess that's not gonna make any money and put on the shelf. IMO piece of junk more wasted money. Slapdash and make some money. I found the only place where any effort was made on this car is the sound. Which is the only thing it says it's not a complete pig. Of course this is my opinion and I just think it's a terrible thing to drive, not enjoyable.
