      Did a few laps on the server, car feels more difficult than it really is on this track in special.
      Quite a handful!
      I enjoy it. But if we have a season, I hope we can have a few faster circuits. This car can provide epic races at Monza 66, to name one.

      Yes, the track is that good!

      Regarding the Lotus 25 handling, I dug up the tyres.ini file and found that it runs rubber that is a lot load sensitive (which is kidda normal given the feather-weight car). Which means load transfer should as be smooth as possible to avoid harsh reaction from the car. Stiffer suspension should help minimize weight transfer, but to a certain extent only. I'll have to give it some laps.

      Guys, Iīm having big troubles, tonight I was going to test the Lotus 25 after downloading the track, went out of pits and the game and the PC stalls, first I was thinking that the track was corrupted, so I did it again and test the car in another track and maybe 40 seconds in track and again the PC goes black. This never happened in my PC, any ideas

      Are you on Windows 10 Hernan? Chris was having some trouble with Windows “Game Mode” after recent updates. Where was that discussion, maybe in the VIR results thread?

      Yes, W10 but I donīt know how the game mode works, I always use Game Booster, the thing is that the PC is not failing in other games, today I clean the fans and the GPU diffuser, at this moment I havenīt test it again but I will let you know the progress, thanks

      It was great to be back racing again in the Historic Series. Haven't run a race in AC for over a year I believe and it was all kind of fuzzy for me and I wasn't sure how to do a proper pit stop as you can't practice them offline. I was able to grab P1 in qualifying and then Patrice who was in P2 got a good jump on my at the start and I followed him around until he broke a bit late at Melbourne hairpin and I was able to get up the inside of him. I managed to turn some quick clean laps and was pulling away from the field and had a good gap between me and P2 with about 15 minutes left in the race I pulling in for the manditory pit stop and added fuel to finish the race with. Once fueled up again I headed out of the pits and just as I did my screen went blank and my PC rebooted, damg it all anyway!!!!!

      Oh well, that's racing eh, congrats to the podium and I'll see you at the next race.

      What do you mean? I think that even if you cannot configure a race with mandatory pit-stop offline, you still can pit during the race, and it will be the same as when you do it online.
