As some of you may be aware, for the last 1 1/2 - 2 months I have been giving the Grinding Tranny mad a jolly good thrashing ( and a fair crack of the whip) and out of all the races I've participated in I have finished about 3 or 4:cry:. Tonight was one of those moments when you think to yourself... "Screw it!" I've tried to make it work for me but there is a glaring inconsistency between sessions. During Practice and Qualifying it seems that you can be as sloppy as you like with the gear shifts and literally run the engine into the ground or scream the knackers off of it and it will keep going. When you come to the Race session though it's a different matter. The slightest mis-shift and the engine wants to just lay down and die. Now this isn't the case with all the cars but most of them are like this and it's not right that they are bullet proof in one session but not in another. There is NO consistency so I recommend that no-one use it. It's more trouble than it's worth.

On a slightly different note, after the "Screw this!" episode in race 1 I disabled the mod for race 2 and had high hopes of actually getting to the finish line which I managed to do, in 3rd place no less. Unfortunately half way through the race I was struck down by a bad case of the Lags and possibly/probably caused some to leave the track unexpectedly. I sincerely apologise to all those that were so affected and state that it was most definitely unintentional, as the following video will hopefully show......


What it doesn't show is the cars flickering between visible and invisible so I truly had no idea where anyone was or where they would be when they reappeared. Driving around with this going on in front was very disconcerting to say the least. :O_o: So, now that I have ditched the awful Minding Granny mod I should be more competetive and be in a better mood at the end of races so see you all next time guys.:thumbsup:

Glad you made this choice, you were being missed in the battles :). I didn't notice any inconsistency but it's just too hard to focus on track action and not missing shifts at the same time.
Also it's not more realistic if the cars really had syncromesh gearboxes.
There was no lag at all for me yesterday, not even you were lagging on my screen.

I bought myself a very fast 27' screen and received it yesterday 20 minutes before joining the lobby, gotta say the difference (to a 23' 60hz) is even bigger than expected, love it. Can't even imagine how immersive it's got to be with 3 of those babies.

Racing was great once again, thanks to the guys that showed up.
Grats to Denis for keeping cool and bringing it home in R1.
With all the GT3 & F1 hype going on in simracing (no joy at all for me personnally) i am very thankful for having someone to race the niche-sims that i like with.
I find it hard to understand that the vast majority of people want more & more GT3 cars in AC for example, while in my opinion the E30 or F40 are the cars that are really fun, same goes for HGTTC vs GT3 mods.
To each their own i guess, i'm just happy we have this now.

@Rupe Wilson
I feel i owe you a drink for what you do here and with Formula Truck, if you ever come to Berlin the scotch is on me, take my word for it :).


Bring on the next race, this is getting addicting.

Edit: @Steven Walker after watching the replay i have to correct myself, you did lag a bit, i just didn't notice in race.

The cars are a lot of fun to drive.
What a pity there are so many DNF in many races.
Can we avoid this?
