It's time to pop the Aussie Club's AMS2 cherry! Just like any first time, it may be awkward and not quite perfect but we will talk about it for years.

It's Bathurst Day here in Oz, so how better to start our AMS2 run with a classic combo at the worlds second best racetrack. These cars are fast and massively addictive. Bumper rubbing at it's best!

Get on it!!

I would love to participate, but which is world's best racetrack?

EDIT: I don't think it's a good idea to join an Australian server as a european, probably shouldn't participate.

great to see some new faces, would really like everyone to at least be listening on the discord channel as this is the first time with AMS2 and there may be a few glitches:) especially seeing as there are no real admin commands for the dedicated server as yet.
Look forward to some fun on the track!

Anyone with experience for this track and car combo in ams2 wanna share a hotlap? Wanna see how much time I am leaving on the table while I was trying it yesterday. Definitely a blast to drive this machine and AMS2 is a very pretty game especially when the sun goes down..

This is going to be another pencil me in one, and hope I can get up in time for the race. At least this time I know it is starting 2am my time :)

I finally fired it up last night and I seemed a bit slow, but again these are not GT3 cars with added downforce to get you through on the twisty parts. Not sure if there is a way to share a hotlap, but you can go into time trial mode and load up ghosts of the top people and also get their setups.

One guy in the AMS hotfix thread said to decrease the clutches to 2, increase toe out a bit, and do decrease front ARB some to help with the understeer.

One thing I found that helped a bit was to increase the steering range, this helps with faster turn in, but be careful about having the back end wash out on you.

I would say that the time trial WR for the car and track is out of the reach for most of us. I was like 7-8s off that pace.
