I'll try to be there. I think I have tried this mod in the past and it was quite good. Interesting to try front wheel drive cars for a change.

THe force feedback feels Wonky on this mod. It almost feels like it is backwards, the way it used to in rF1 when you had to reverse the FFB slider.

Hi Myles, and say hi to Dan too.

You are more than welcome to join. We are in our off-season so it's the perfect time to test if you would enjoy your time here.

Lately we have been racing with Apex and URD EGT mods and we will continue with EGT in our next full series. We have one-off events every now and then where we try something different as this week with BTCC mod.

See you on track!

Thanks Simon, I haven't done any laps yet, so was just about to ask if anyone would be kind enough to share a setup!

Unfortunately I wont be able to make this race. I will be involved in a race of a different sort. I'll be directing traffic for a local Triathalon. But the upside is I still will be telling people where to go so that is nice. I will get the server setup the night prior to the race and hopefully one of the moderators can be in attendance to reset the race weekend at the appropriate time. Sorry to miss it and hope everyone has a great time.

Ok gents, I had a quick run with this mod last night and I have one question... why did we pick this mod again?  As other have said, the force feedback is pretty poor and the cars just give little joy.  With so many good mods like one of the clios or the BMW E90, just seems a waste of a race with this thing.

Btw Simon those setups from race department are pretty much just default  :o.

Anyway, I will try to make it but I may have an appointment to watch some paint dry  :P.

Nothing wrong with the ffb, just the way front wheel drive feels. Sure there are other mods too but can't have them all at once :)

Well maybe my car is just broken then  :P.  Lol, seriously tho, try the Clio and you will see how a front wheel drive car is supposed to feel and behave.

I've been driving FWD cars (chevy Impala squads) for a few years at speed and don't recall them pulling toward the inside of the curve at any point other than during torque steer.

I've been driving rf2 Clio a lot back in the day. I might remember myself how it feels.

This mod isn't my favourite either but I don't believe it's broken or anything like that. It has to driven quite differently to what we have used to and while it's not as fun, close racing might be a thing here and also tyre management.

Ill pass on this one too, I never enjoyed Mores for more than like 20 mins, it than becomes quite painful on my braking foot.

Sorry about the late notice, but not going to make it, as besides watching pain dry I have to work.  Just a suggestion but how about we try pick a mods and tracks that most here actually want to drive for these fun runs  :P

I picked this because it has been suggested to me in the past. Looks like I won't be picking it again in the future as a lot of drivers are passing on it.

So this was a fail as only me and Simon were there... shame because some close and tactical was possible given the smaller gaps in laptimes and high tyre wear.

See you next week.
