Entrylist:

How to use Launch control:
Copy/paste from Keith message in the training event; Thanks Keith!

launch control. hopefully this will help someone.

step 1 - pull up to grid box.
step 2 - engage neutral
step 3 - push and hold launch control
step 4 - when the lights start to go red still holding launch control push gas pedal to 100%
step 5 - when the lights go out release launch control. keep foot planted and go thru the gears

things not to do.

don't use touch a manual clutch pedal while launching under this proceedure.
don't use part throttle. keep it 100%.
if lifting to avoid an incident ahead remember if you plant your foot again you may spin it... cold tyres! treat it like a lady (as someone said to me... i think it was Ingemar)

hope that helps a bit.
plus a video:

I was driving in TCL, at a selection of the '88 tracks. To be able to race at them all, I had to install the '88 Track Pack (which can be found with the F1 '88 Mod, at rFc).
When I tried to get on the RD server earlier, I was met with the opposite problem... I need to change the '88 Estoril track, back again... lol.

Hopefully, this'll give a heads up to anyone else who's installed the '88 track pack.

OMG, just tried the cars... T-Cam is useless. Angle of view is 'strange'. Therefor my race-timer is just on the place where the horizon is. And mirror is in front also.

Have to adapt to cockpitview in those. My first meters were more difficult then F1's LOL.
