I drove it before and it is VERY VERY VERY close to the real thing (I did 3000+ laps on it with a Motorcycle). It was repaved in 2007, but otherwise even all the bumps are in the same spots!! Very well done!

Some tips guys.

Unlike Formula 1, CART did not use tyre blankets to preheat the tyres before a stint; therefore they take longer to get to full operating temperature than many drivers will be used to. Please allow for one or two laps to get the tyres up to temperature before exploring the limits.

The chassis, engine and tyre differences are not just eye candy - they do have their own physics and performances. The GoodYear tyres take longer to get up to temperature than the Firestones, and the Toyota engine has less power and is more prone to failure than the others. We won't ruin all the fun for you, so you'll have to drive the mod to discover the performance differences between the cars.

Brakes on the CART machines were made of steel, not carbon, so braking distances are longer than F1 sim drivers will be used to. They also take longer to heat up, and when cold are very easy to lock a wheel. Please allow for this when exploring the limits of the cars for the first time.

The gearbox was a mechanical sequential unit with an ignition cut-off triggered by pressure on the shifter and as such it did not require the driver to lift on upshifts. The most realistic way to simulate its operation is by having auto-lift enabled in the plr.
So don't only look at the skin when you pick your car. :wink2:
