If I can make it and my electricity supply behaves itself tonight, I will give this one a shot mate (no electric for most of last night :rolleyes:)

EDIT: Warren/other Muscle virgins: Yves has posted a few setups in the setups area - maybe try them first and adapt em to your likings ... will try to post any setups I have later but generally they are not to ppls liking (and I seem to makes em more Tokyo drifter stylee than race cars :D)

Thanks Lee and Michael. Yves has already kindly given me some tips on how to drive these brutes, the big test will be seeing how much of it I can put into practice.
Only one way to learn though, gotta give it a go. :lever:

This is sommat I posted a while back for another one of these events - might help you and other "virgins" get accustomed to em a bit quicker :th_wink:

... a few tips from what I sussed so far driving these things:

  • Get off the gas/throttle sooner and leave more braking distance than with other cars
  • Don't downshift too early/hard, you will lock the rear up too much and spin out, although trail braking will help stop these beasties (GPL stylee)
  • Finish braking early, then let the car settle momentarily before trying to turn in
  • On corner entry the cars understeer, so most corners require a bit of a flick to get the cars to turn in (and they will not wanna turn in if you are still braking)
  • Slightly sideways is "normal" ... once turned in you need to oversteer these babies with the throttle and rear wheels to get them to turn and exit a corner faster.
  • Use the torque not high RPM's ... try running things one gear up from where you feel you would normally run (eg 2nd not 1st)

I would love to join in guys, this will be my very first race with you on the server and I am a beginner so will be a little rusty but I like clean races. I know what the outcome of the race will be at least for me ;), but as long as I have fun and learn from some of the better drivers it should be a great time. I guess for me being in Canada, that would mean 8:00pm Toronto time?

Please sign me up and see you on the track.

Karim.
