Sign me up. Last race, the Porsche slid out under me again occasionally on the curves. Either it is my lack of driving skills or I need to tune the car. I have much less problem with the same car/track running locally. My guess is I didn't have the same settings as the server (traction control, ABS etc).

Are people still having issues with the ping/response time with the server in the Netherlands?

The TC settings could have changed between a single player session and MP because we allow it on cars that do not support it out of the box. This can result in having more levels of adjustment and perhaps put you on a lower TC setting that you were accustomed to. (lower values = more TC in AC which is also confusing)

I recommend practicing on the practice server so variables such as that, track temp, ect are all accounted for. :thumbsup:

Are you available over the next few days / weekend for a tuning session?

The ping was OK last night.

Hey, I want to join you guys next week, but I don't see an MX5 Cup Car in my list of available cars - and I do have Dream Pack #3. Are you sure it's in Dream Pack #3?

If so, I have more problems with my AC install than I thought! (I thought that I had things up and running again......)

Thanks.

I have Traction and ABS set to Factory, Stability Control to 50%. What about the server?

I should have some time on Sunday. Pretty flexible with time. Thx!

server does not allow stability control. so I think that might be your issue. @newbert do you want to join us on sunday for a bit of tuning / driving school?
