I have a question regarding setup. Would you soften the front end or the back end?
Depends on the car as they do have their own personalities, but with the Cupra I often soften the rear by a click or two.

'ere, how come club nights are so poorly attended lately?
Most surely can't be ACC stealing them all, bloody awful on my PC, cars drive ok and if I could find a field of view that worked with my triple setup, it looks very much like the tracks are up to scratch. Alas no matter what I try, Single player Jonny no mates is the only option I can get to work and when I do finally sit in the car I have to faff about with the view, every sodding time, then the background doesn't seem to be going the same speed as me and I get this horrible blurring that quite frankly gave me nausea. :thumbsdown:
I suppose rF2 has the Aston in their GT3 pack, can see that stealing a couple, have kept away myself, well until the pack is full and on sale! :)
AMS :O_o: I keep it on my PC for Caterhams, Trucks and Brit tracks only. I'm in (barely) the Mini league, which is fun, if I didn't get DQ'd that is, :rolleyes: but jeez, those Mini's are most definitely not the finest representation of a car I've ever driven, :confused: fun but reminiscent of piloting a Hovercraft on a Roller-coaster, whilst doing the hand jive.
Strange thing is, user numbers are up considerably on last year, we know it's not the Sim, as it just gets better and better. It does lack a bit of attention with the higher echelon at RD but I suppose the lack of modding demotes it with the old guard :whistling: I do feel they counter this with an ever increasing list of content, quality content at that.
Maybe it's time for RD to show it some love and have a league of our own, I'm sure we could rustle up a few, enough for an entertaining wander around the world (as long as it's not FWD, I've forgotten how to drive them) in one of many wonderful series or cup cars.
Really wish I could make Sundays but at £250 an hour I can hardly have her watch me sweating in an NSU for 2 hours! :roflmao::roflmao::roflmao: Raceroom rules the roost in my house! :thumbsup:

To be fair, it does vary quite a bit. Sometimes the WTCRs will get 20+ drivers, other times not. It depends on people's availability (made clear by the sharp increase in numbers over the festive period when people were off work), and what the other clubs happen to be doing. Quite often the faster, more powerful cars will win the day despite the actual racing in WTCR being far closer and more exciting.

Nope. There's no league on the way. Honestly. Not at all. Never. :cautious:

On a different note, my router has once again been playing up all day, so who knows if I'll be able to stay online long enough to race...:thumbsdown:
