Riverside gets another visit from the club but this time we'll be slugging it out in the DTM class! This track has great rhythm and a nice long back straight for passing opportunities!

Man I just ran a test here and this is really not very exciting. You cannot adjust the ratios in the transmission and therefore the cars are maxed out halfway down the straight.

Sorry about the crummy job on this one. I hadn;t tested this first and am a little embarrased this one just is weak on the driving side.

WOuld you guys object to either V8 Supercars or Radicals instead?

The track is great but these cars are just made for something a little tighter with more corners.

There are 4 diff gear options for the V8 supercars though so you can just run the higher rea gear and make the car go faster.

I used the ratios from the Valencia setups, from memory I think 6th was around 2.94, with top speed of 274km with rear wing at 17 ...I just uploaded it for the Mercedes...but Super Cars ok too, have not tried them either...

you can;t adjust the ratios in the transmission Philip. OR do you guys have some add on patch I don't know about? I am topping out at 160MPH before the bridge...........

I'm using the 1.217 ratio and topping out at about 178 at entry to the gentle left that scrubs maybe 2 mph off the car. Wing is, I suppose, a little high at 10 (brought down from 19 default). If this is a typical track, my times in the mid 1:12's should mean you all are capable at 1:08's at least. (gap seems to be about 4 seconds regardless of length-of-lap)

(2007 Audi - tried the one higher ratio, 1.285, but actually had slightly lower speeds and didn't like 4th as well for turning the final corner)

LOL ok then boys its business as usual! Ya know, this is just more proof that being on the RD staff is no guarantee of intelligence in my case........


BTW who was the fool who "elected" me to this ofice anyway? HE HE HE
