This won't work you know! I'm a slow sim racer and that's all there is to it. Making me drive cars[Cat 320 or any other Cat] that I'm no good in, again and again, isn't going to make me better.

I probably won't even have fun.

It's not even a, "Please don't throw me in the briar patch" thing.

Sob:crying:

The best way to learn to drive a RWD car is driving a CSR :) Let is slide baby, let is slide :)

Hey, it's me who is the slowest :fwd: driver out here. So you and me can compete :fencing: and have fun :tea:

If oversteering during acceleration is a problem for you, you can decrease differential lock in car setup. Decreasing front camber and increasing front springs will help against oversteering too.

Of course these measures will reduce acceleration and frontal grip respectively, so you must change them back gradually as you master the art of RWD.

Yves - sign me up.

Austin this event is at 3 EST and its an event for the general members meaning mostly for the Europe members, the NA community have 3 event this week, one on Wednesday at 8 EST, the second one Friday at 9 EST and Sunday at 9 EST. you said that your part of the RDSTL which mean you'll also have to download add-on tracks to race in it, if you have any problem just ask and people always help when someone have a problem.

oversteer = rear springs to hard, or front roll-bar to stiff(hard). Don't underestimate the pressure of the tyres. These cars or mostly to hard.

break out in a corner when accl. = mostly lock to high.

There is a handbook on this side (RD) just search for it.

It must be the way I drive. I can experience oversteer but I don't find these cars to be oversteering monsters. I can get nice handling characteristics out of most rwd cars[bmw's, gt-pro's, f3000, fbmw etc] but this one, at some tracks is a tough nut.

Andriy, you don't mind me getting "close" as I try to get by, do you?

I don't mind. Why would I? Slight unintentional contact is acceptable.

Of course you must expect me to break before turns :) and must keep enough distance so you can steer and overtake me if I break prematurely. When exiting turns and on straights you can go bumper-to-bumper, but as we approaching a turn some safety space must be created. I also shift half-lane as I approach another player, so I can easily avoid contact if he breaks.

Safe overtaking is a black art for me, probably we must ask someone to teach us. :) I mostly overtake when people go off track, or when they exit from a turn with a wrong acceleration point. Most time when I catch up someone, I just keep driving closely to put psychological pressure on him and wait until he makes a mistake.
