    Really love this track, really hate this car. And it doesn't really help as this combo has terrible track detection you can clearly keep within the white lines and it will give you an invalid lap on several points of the track. With such a wayward car you would expect a little leniency, especially when you are keeping within the white line. It's funny because with other cars you can literally abuse that line. Well anyway the car is:poop: and handles like one. I'd rather use my Range Rover, it handles better, can I race with that?:roflmao:

    PS: Come to think about it, I'm wondering if it's the layouts. I'm going to try the same car on a different layout and see if the cut detection are any different from each layout. It would be interesting to know if has anything to do with the car or not. Then again it could be just my imagination.:O_o::whistling:

    As my recovery has gone well now my plans have been changed as well. So instead of racing on R3E I will be hauling (less than 25 lbs.:)) junk to the car at an antiques flea market:poop:...oh joy:rolleyes:
    With my apologies @Ross Garland please remove me from this event.:redface:

    Hope at the least I find something auto related.

    I'll be in for this one. I don't have anything to do this day and my wife will be out of town. So, hopefully I will not be designated for overtime this weekend.


    This is the ride I choose:

    Hi Steve, I'm not sure I'm in. If I can find a good setup for this car I will participate, otherwise I won't. There's no point to race and being allways out of the track. I will let you know until sunday. Thanks.

    I say we do this race in the Green Hell next time it is hosted on the weekend. In fact we should do it on the Gemstrecke configuration. Make it 6 laps?

    Bad idea.
    While there is no doubt the Nords is an iconic track, it doesn't make for very good racing, especially in Club races.
    Just running the Nords without crashing takes a lot of practice, in particular with a car as twitchy as this. and not everybody can/will invest that kind of time.
    Next, it is almost impossible to overtake safely on this track (aside for the final stretch), meaning most people will simply be doing laps.
    And finally, the Club races attract people of different pace, and on the Nords a large variation in lap-times will mean that after lap 1, you're unlikely to ever see another car for the next 30 minutes. Which makes the multi in multi-player sort of redundant.

    I mean, even on iRacing where people generally take this more serious than we do, the Nord races are complete crash-fiestas, and there are usually very few duels going on.

    I'm in but what's up with this car? It feels like I'm driving K.I.T.T. I'm completely new to simracing and cars in general so sorry for my ignorance but what's the point of the assists on a race car? They help you go faster at the expense of you barely being in control?

    Er....
    What assists?
    The Porsche Cup car doesn't have any, no ABS, no traction-control, nada.
