Note2: These are really fun, very simple to drive cars. They are low powered, very chuckable little cars that work very well on short courses. We will be running 2 short races per track in this testing event (a total of 4 short races), and using a 2 lap quali session to keep things nice and fresh. We will only run a 15 min practice session before race1.

Slight venue change - found an invisible wall @ Pembrey.

Switching to Northampton Sports Car Challenge (Silverstone Club)

2 Default tracks, so no downloading beyond the mod itself.

Nige - for future ref, buy the ffb upgrade (free) and change the value in the RealFeel ini file to 200%

i did look for a realfeel upgrade in the upgrades section, but can only remember seeing FFB low, med and high settings which didnt help. i`ll look again tomorrow :good:

ps. good news about the track change, that one seemed very dark and dreary :(

Go on then Stuart. The mini's are a bit too competitive for my skills at the moment, so I'll give this a go. :)

Just did some testing on the two tracks. I couldn't stop driving:lol:

Great fun for sure and very nice tracks.

I started out with default ffb and gradually modified it based on Stuart's dead-zone file and Warren's ffb settings for GTLegends. Did some final adjustments to get some grip-fade when understeering.
The ffb settings are attached below (make sure to backup if you want to try it out)

As far as I know it's the default short course, Tim, no reversals that I'm aware of, but I don't know the track naming convention that well in rF.

It's the one below that runs clockwise. (I'm hoping that's the standard one)
