    notes from the mod creator on the Car
    Please be aware that the default shifting option is H-Pattern with Clutch. If you don't have a clutch or an H-Pattern shifter, please choose the Paddle Shifter option in tuning.

    If you choose the H-Pattern option, you will have to make good shifts

    Driving Tip
    Be patient with your entry speed! This is the critical mistake that SM drivers make. You can carry tons of speed through turns, but you have to get the entry speed right. If you come in too hot, lift a little and preemptively counter steer.. you can save it to a point [​IMG]

    I recommend the following FFB settings:
    G25/27:
    Car Specific FFB MULT = 1.24
    FFB Smoothing = 4
    Steering torque minimum="0.08000"

    T500
    Car Specific FFB MULT = 1.00
    FFB Smoothing = 0
    Steering torque minimum="0.03000"

    I recommend setting your engine volume to 35%. Spec Miatas are LOUD. Setting the this to 35% is effectively the same as wearing ear plugs, plus you'll be able to use TS or Vent and hear the spotter.

    Would love to run this with you guys but I just cam to find out my r-factor 2 is no good anymore. Seems the life time $90 fee was bull. I didn't know they were switching to steam. Oh well, not sure my machine would run it anyway. I am at the bare minimum for requirements.

    Glen, it's time to switch over to steam version then. I was apprehensive at first about making the switch just as you may be, but it worked flawlessly, and now I don't have to manually update the game anymore!! It's great.

    Congrats to Darien on the win last night! Unfortunately this turned out to not be a popular idea and only 4 drivers made the race ... Here are the Race Results ... I myself had to miss as well because at the last minute my wife's sister came over and we had unexpected company.
