    I really want to hear people impressions of this event (short track, short race, 1 type of car). I might do more of these easy to learn tracks on weekdays

    I'm a fan of shorter events. Ends up being closer, more heart pumping racing. Although I am sad when they're over.

    We'll see how this track goes but this feels more like a track we should run Timed events instead of Lapped events to make it last a touch longer.

    So far I am really liking the selection of the single car and the short track, and am starting to get the feel of the track alot better. Personally that Chicane is nothing it's the Double 90's that are getting me

    Hey, count me in... It'll be my first race xD

    I'm having trouble spinning the cars out as well... I drive an Audi 200 (quattro) IRL in ralleycross and autocross, and I've been driving the FWD cars in game... the RWD cars are just being a pain.

    Edit: The reason for this is because I'm not used to a RWD car with this much power, my last RWD car was an E30 BMW 325iS. >.< NOT inclined to power sliding xD.

    Hi,

    I just joined the RD mainly because I stumbled across this thread. I am new to 'Evo' and have been looking for a place to get some experience with the sim.

    I am interested in asking permission to join this event but I have a coouple of questions.

    Is this event using this mod?
    Porsche 997RSR / Ferrari F430 add-on for GTR Evo by scca1981.
    Version: 2.0

    and

    Could I join the race without installing the skin listed at the bottom of post #1?

    Thanks,

    Duane

    Duane,

    click the link on the event banner (1st post) for the track and car. no yu won't need that extra skin. there are plenty of skins in the pack already. you'll have to register at NO GRIP to get the car file.

    hope you apease the POPE and get in this event!:victory:

    ok managed to run a nice 41.856. this should be fun for sure! talk about precise! used a slightly adjusted Gregory deGReef online setup..:party2: steady 42.1-2 is more like it without all that lag and fuss of the other cars.

    I predict Mr. barrick will be loving this as it reminds me of a kart track at one end and we know he's a slug in a kart............:rotfl:

    Well keep at it... I would say show up for practice and see how it feels it you are running generally lag free then stick around otherwise you can bug out, Course that's just me talking anyway but we would love to have you if you can actually participate

    I would have to agree with Chris. You can make practice then ask everyone else if you are lagging if it is so then just pull out.

    Yes to all your questions:) actually from some findings I dont think Sean should be even using that skin.

    Come to play with us:) and welcome to RD.

    Yeah, you don't have to download the skin. It will just make my car look like a Porsche instead of a Lacetti. I'm honestly contemplating even using it.
