    Please read before you drive:

    1.You must warm up the tires for two laps before you can push the car.

    2.You can adjust the turbo pressure (control-settings increment and decrement boost)

    3.Important, when you use higher turbo pressure you need more fuel, please put in more fuel for a race and take a look to the fuel.

    4.Important, more turbo pressure increased the engine temp and blow up the engine, you must one eye on the temp! when the temp is to high, go back 1 or 2 steps.

    5.Carefully with the throttle, these cars are beast you drive the powerful f1 cars ever. Gerhard Berger says "You need big balls to drive these cars"

    6.The Startsetup have low RPM. You can adjust it.

    7.Adjust the ai strength to 85-90, its not a shame :)

    Fantastic stuff!

    Great mod, love it!

    Hard, but always fun to drive, for me one of the best F1 mod's ever.

    Last night try them at Estoril 88, were in 1985 I watch for the first time a F1 race live, after a few laps I just stand in front of the screen watching the AI drivers, almost like they were the real ones. Fantastic stuff!

    Brilliant mod this

    Very difficult to master though and extremely tough on some tracks.

    The turbo cars are insane with big boost.

    I have tried very hard to use the H pattern shifter and clutch, it does take some getting used to!!

    WOuld be rgeat to meet up with a few guys in a server and have a play. Setups seem pretty good from default.

    Well I installed this MOD a little while back and last night I had a little play on it and I LOVE IT :D

    The car's are difficult to drive as has already been posted in this thread however if your smooth, warm the tires up properly and have a pretty decent setup it is VERY REWARDING I have to say.

    Last night I had an AI race around the Austrian A1 Ring, I only tweeked the car slightly and found I really had to push hard to get near the front.

    I managed to qualify 4th and in the race I ran to the end and finished 2nd.

    If you have not tried it yet and love F1, give it a go it is a real treat from the more recent cars, it would be great to see some races on here arranged used this very MOD, any chance guys ... :wink:
