    Hey guys, sorry I couldn't show Sunday to make up some numbers, had to go see a people mechanic for a water works tune-up during the week, holding tank needed some maintenance, lol.
    Anyway should be all good from here on in, looking forward to some more close racing on Sunday.
    Can I suggest some Audi Quattro races, these things are cool to steer and make for a balanced event with everyone in the same car, all comes down to setup & driver ability.
    Whats every ones thoughts?

    Cheers

    @nipzon Thnx mate :D
    Might have to put some hrs in behind the wheel, play with settings see how it responds. Haven't tinkered with it in the past, could make all the difference ;)
    Might even hit a pub(l)ic server tonight .................. if there's any up for the Audi that is :D

    Love the idea of sharing setups!

    Sorry I haven't been active have had to take work away from my home. Can't wait to get back and racing again.

    Though I'm not into old cars. Really want to concentrate on GT2/3
    Can I contribute to a dedicated server that looks after this class?

    I hear ya mate, I also am fond of GT2/3, if donations are required for a dedi, count me in :cool:

    So I had a squirt in the Audi 90 Quatro around Mid-Ohio Short, this thing is so much fun once you get it settled. Found I was power sliding out of some apexes.....awesome fun :D, over-did-it heaps though :eek: and looped it round quite a few times :oops:. Only thing I couldn't settle was the front pushing through the apex, only way I was able to keep it clean was to make sure I washed out enough pace before cnr entry, which is why you will get some rear drift when you power out, if it starts to slide just hold the pedal firm, and enjoy the ride ;).
    Quickest lap I put down was a mid 1.11, but there's more there I'm sure.
    So grab my setup, let me know how it feels, and tinker with it if you want too :cool:.
    Cheers :)

    P.S. May need to rain check Sunday, my run on the rig may of caused an issue with the water works tune-up, surprising how much effort the body uses to Sim Race, anyway see how it goes, Sunday's still a few days away.

    Awesome m8, I'll get testing.........practise makes perfect:D

    Ive been wondering if this new O/S was worth it's weight, went for a perv on their website seems W10 is a complete new build from the ground up, which is what they should of done with 8, it's also going to be a free upgrade for certain W7 & W8-8.1 versions for the next year, a noble gesture I must say, but I'm suss there's a catch somewhere, Microsoft offering an O/S for free, there's gotta be a catch, honestly, lol. Might just upgrade an older W7 PC Ive got sitting around and road test the new offering, if it'll run on it of course :)

    So far I am quite happy with the new performance. Switched back to Win7 for a mail check and it crashed BSD on me lol.
    Did a race on Bathurst and the frame rate was constant 60, but Zonder had shitty lagg everytime you could see the pit area. And that was settings on default too.

    All my drivers are working apart from siminstruments dash that I cannot get the control panel to work.
    Also windows 10 is not activated, sats they blocked the key, so if and when I get the the key, the next task will be to clone everything onto a SSD.

    Hmmm, knew there was a catch, are they going offer legit keys with the freebie W10?
    I have a retail version of 7Ultimate allows me to upgrade hardware then re-activate my windows key to suit, so unless I get the same retail version in W10 I refuse to go to an OEM version, cause when ya mobo dies so do the OEM keys, rip off.

    Hey guys, I will be a no show for tonight I'm afraid, spewing I'm gonna miss the slide fest that is the Audi 90 :(, I'm under post-op restrictions only suppose to do light exercise eg; walking, sitting, eating, drinking and anything else that involves very little exertion, I'm always doing stuff so it's tough to do nothing for 4 weeks, I should be good to hit the rig next weekend though, any longer and I'll be getting admitted wrapped in a long sleeved white jacket :D;).
    Anyway have fun with the Audi guys, I know you will :cool::)

    We should put screen shots up with track, car and time. Easier to try out I think.

    Just finished a clean install so starting just about fresh with settings.

    Did a 2'02'272 at Bathurst in the Audi Quatro 90, but damned if I can find the same set I had then.
