    The track version you need is ..Salzburgring 2016 v1.01..the track has nothing to do with S397 so I have no idea. This is a conversion from RF1 by digga. The link is on the main page.

    Delete Salzburgring from packages and unsubscribe from the Salzburgring on Steam. Then close down RF2 completely. Now use the link on the event post and subscribe to the track "Salzburgring 2016 v1.01" ..now start up RF2 and it should now work :thumbsup:

    If it helps with time? the default setups are actually very good, of course you just need to worry about heat and pressures (tires) :thumbsup:

    Any tips for a rf2 first-timer when it comes to tyre compounds and pit strategy? Will any of the compounds last 50mins without a change? Are the tyre pressures and temps as crucial to get right as AC? Us R3E folk are simple folk :roflmao:

    I'm probably the last person you want to ask, but - mediums are a safe bet regarding grip stability over the whole race, but are slower, softs should still last and are faster at least initially, but might fall off to an extent that also depends on setup and your driving, and you may find that you might be better off just running mediums. So it really is hard to recommend one or the other.

    Thanks Martin, I'll maybe play it safe and go with the mediums then! I'm assuming people don't normally pit in a 50min race then?

    A photo is one part the overall situation. Two times i come from backwards and you see that my speed is really faster than yours and nevertheless you have too times defend your line too long even though i was in front. the first situation (start/finish) - okay a little bit more space for you... but the second situation, before i try to pass you, you loss the control and catch the car, than i was little bit in front of you. Nevertheless you will stay on your position instead of braking... in the race, i think you shoot me with purpose. :-( if i see the replay, i think you defend your line 2 times to much and to long, because i was both times a little bit in front and than you have to release the ideal line. summarized i would say 50/50 and thus race accidents. for the freedom and goodwill i have to say sorry, if you think the same...

    Well that was a great introduction to rf2 for me! Not the result, that was awful thanks to a few off track excursions, getting beached in the kitty litter and then having to pay a visit to the pits to repair damage :redface: I think I was about 2-3 laps down but decided to keep going and use it as a bit of a shakedown. Have to say I really enjoyed the driving experience and will definitely be back! Bit disappointed how few finishers there were though - 30 drivers signed up and I finished 12th despite being over a lap down in the end? Bit poor!
