We seem to be using the Apex modding car lately instead of the BES 911. Will we see it again soon?
We had both at Road America and their pace was very similar but IMO the BES car has better handling due to the ability to adjust diff on power and coast side separately. The Apex car you have to choose between turn in oversteer (low diff lock) or exit understeer (high diff lock).
The BES car also has more drag, Apex a little fast.
Just asking.
Thanks.

Ah, David! It's great to see you here again mate! :thumbsup: My apologies, I chose the Apex Modding version because I thought it was preferred following the last update, not to mention that I had almost completely forgotten about the BES version. :redface: Saying this, I too think that the BES 911 is the better mod; that race we had at Poznan has scarred me for life! :laugh: I can update the server to use both versions of the car, if you like. :D

The therapy I had after Poznan in the early version 1 has helped, but yes when I see Apex 911 I flinch a little still!
I would love you to run the BES 911 and will be there to race if so.
I did a back to back test on the two cars a few months ago (Apex and BES) and the new Apex was a big improvement, but still the BES is the benchmark (IMO).
It was interesting at Road America with both types in a 90 min race.
The Apex had us off the line (low Cd), (my theses was* Gijs had higher diff lock and I was able to drive under him on a fast corner, another good driver had less diff lock and he kept having isues on turn entry. So despite lower top speed the BES was better over race distance.

The server has been updated - both versions of the car should now be available to drive! :D Let me know if there are any issues.

Really sorry, scrub that, you are running an ancient version of the bes mod that has been so improved since then. :(

In what way has it been improved?
Personally I am delighted with the version I have and have spent many hours testing and driving various 911 mods that are not as good. I dont want to update unless its clearly better and more or as authentic.
@Petra Sklenarova
can you enlighten us?
I drove it about 2 months ago HERE and it was fantastic. Pretty sure it was V1.0 Any changes?

It might not be wise using the updated mod for this race, as people are accustomed to v1.0; however, we can certainly move to the new version in the future. :D I can run a club race with them next week, if you like? :thumbsup:

Just to let you know, the BES Porsche finds a slight speed bump (which it tends to do on some tracks ) just before braking zone for the hairpin end S2 and on pit straight occasionally.
It doesnt affect the lap, just a little jolt.

Fuel is 2.16 lit/lap
Prob 18 laps so 40 lit.

theres 2 extra updates the server wants to download but problem is its not downloading
Which updates do you mean? You can download the required mods for the server via the links in the first post.

UPDATE:
The links to the required sound mods are missing. I'll add these now. :thumbsup:

If we are only 4 drivers should we skip Quali?? I'm happy to start second row.
I might join you guys as well, provided I arrive home in time from work. Either way, I'm happy for qualifying to be skipped. :thumbsup:
