For my initial settings, I started with equal power-to-weight ratios.  I then did testing at several tracks and tweaked each file along the way in an attempt to equalize.  To be honest, I'm not sure where the HP numbers ended up, as I was working more towards equal lap times.

Getting the tires equal was definitely part of the goal, since a few of the cars had a huge advantage there.  But that requires modified or additional files, so that issue is unavoidable.

We'll see how the new set of files goes ...

Hi, gys!  I jumped onto the server yesterday for a quick trial.  Or, at least, I tried to.  No go!  File mis-match message.  Loaded up the new files as per Trae's posting et voila!, home free!  :)  Felt really good to get the 'cuda back in the groove.

Not much chance that I'll miss the round.  Will work hard to put an end the Mike & Henry show.  ;)

Server was not up for me and forum was down? Glad to see you back Doni.

I didn't even know there was an update so kinda glad we (maybe?) didn't race lol

It was great to be back in the saddle, chaps!  I enjoyed the round immensely and my eyeballs were 100%.

If it weren't for the unfortunate collision with Trae, the race result would have been entirely up in the air.  As it was, I was doing my nut to keep up with him.  I bested my qualifying time by a significant margin and that still only had me clinging to his coat tails!  😀

Those wicked sand traps proved costly to Volzie and Trae.  I managed to keep my skirts clean.

See you next round!

Something must have changed server side, before next race can I get proper IP to join that doesn't show the other rF mod? The server has never shown for me in rF lobby. I'm a bit upset to have missed this one and not something due on my end.. I had tried all night to get connected or get on the forums which were down.

Right now I can't even get to the main website to download the next track. It's refusing my connection? lol

AHA!  So...  My malware is working a treat on you, Mike!

Seriously, I hope that you can get it sorted soon.

I really don't like drivers to be excluded due to an issue like that.
EDIT:  FYI ... there were only 3 of us there on Thursday, so there may have been others with similiar issues (Jimmy?, Ziggy?)

So ...Would you guys be up for calling that one a practice round and trying again this week (8/3)?


Mike, I think I know why you couldn't see it, and I'm trying to find the best solution.  If all else fails, I can go back to running one server at a time.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
