Probably the best thing to do is to resize some of the materials you use.If you take a look inside your track folder after exporting to rFactor, sort files by size you will probably see some textures are 1mb or more even. using say photoshop and Xpacker you can replace these textures with smaller versions or even remove the bump, diffuse and specular images. This can save you alot of mb space.

Can't help with the size issue, but if you want a reverse track, that's easy. Under "Edit Start/Finish" drive line,centerline tabs, right under Append Track, there is "Flip Direction" Do that and save as "Your track reverse" or something like that.

It will also reduce the size considerably when you've finished the track and pack [compress] it into the .mas and maps.mas files

Export from BTB - close BTB

Mova all .dds files into MAS.exe and save as Textures.MAS in Track Folder
Mova all .gmt files into MAS.exe and save as Objects.MAS in Track folder
Delete all dds and gmt files in Track folder
Edit Track.scn
MASFile=sky.mas
MASFile=COMMONMAPS.MAS
change to:
MASFile=objects.MAS
MASFile=textures.MAS
MASFile=sky.mas
MASFile=COMMONMAPS.MAS
Delete all gmt and dds files in track

If you run into any loading problems, have a look at the file layout in a regular track to check what files should be where. The two new .mas files should be in the main track directory along with sky.mas.
