    Hi all,
    I have got this sim/mod working a treat and Im surprised at how great it feels! but im not a complete rally head so I'm having trouble identifying quickly what cars are in what car packs. I have installed the complete pack but i only recognize Group B out of the massive list. Can you guide me as to to what all the letters and numbers refer to so i an quickly understand and choose when playing rather than having to go through them all and view the car list to see whats in them?

    Because the admin will tell you what car is required for the club events.....U only need to know the car you are using for the championship....

    Hopefully someone else will actually have the list you need, but untill then if you are not signed up for the club/c'ship races, give it a go its the best way to improve and have some fun and friendly banter!

    The categories are somewhat simple to remember. A is heavily tuned cars, N is lightly tuned cars. I'll try to make a list of those I know.

    A8(W) - WRC and Group A-cars, the top class 4WD's from 1987 until now.
    A7(K) - 2 litre FWD, the top 2WD class in the 90's (suicide machines fore sure :p ) (In general, K is more powerful than those without)
    A6(K) - 1,6 litre FWD, the S1600 cars used in the JWRC.
    A5(K) - 1,4 litre FWD

    N4 - slightly tuned 4WD with turbo, used in the PWRC
    N4_S2000 - heavily tuned 4WD witout a turbo, used in SWRC and the top cars in he IRC
    N3 - 2 litre FWD
    N2 - 1,6 litre FWD
    N1 - 1,4 litre FWD

    GT10 - GT cars, for now Porsche 911 and Nissan 350 Z
    VHC - classic rally cars like the Renault Alpine, Ford Escort MKI etc.
    Group B - the powerful machines of the 80's
    Group H - RWD's, especially popular class in the scandinavian countries. Cars like the Volvo 242, Toyota Starlet etc.

    I don't understand all of the numbering either, but many are straight forward:
    The A8W cars are World Rally Cars with the number denoting which year they represent. eg. A8W-08 is WRC cars from 2008.
    N4 cars are Production Class cars.
    N4_S2000 cars are the S2000 cars still common in WRC events. 4WD cars but without turbos.
    Group H are the Historic cars, but not from the Group B era, usually RWD cars.
    The A6 / A7 cars are usually smaller FWD cars.
    The A8 cars are usually 4WD cars of historical significance, but more modern 1995-2005, slightly less powerful than the WRC cars.

    Hopefully someone else can expand or explain it better.
    In the end, you just have to try them out, but there is a huge list.
