    Try restarting Steam and rFactor to make sure the mods are fully installed.
    If that doesn't solve it, try un-subscribing and resubscribing to the mods.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Had some good practice yesterday for this one, thanks for the help on the setup Don. I've also decided to adopt the left foot braking blip vs heel toe and my ankles/feet are much happier about this change. Car is starting to get pretty fun!

    Dan, in addition to Don's good suggestions...

    1) Be sure you are subscribed to the track in Steam rF2 Workshop (signed-in link: https://steamcommunity.com/app/365960/workshop/)
    2) Do the verify cache thingie...

    Steam > rFactor2 > right click on the name in the top left under Installed and go to Properties > Local Files tab > Verify Integrity of Game Files

    3) If any errors, it will download repaired files.
    4) Important to run it until it does not find anything wrong.
    5) To do the rF2 unsubscribe / resubscribe dance for your PURCHASED content (as opposed to the just the SUBSCRIBED rF2 Workshop content)...

    Steam > YOUR NAME menu drop down > Inventory > click each item in the boxes > then click on View Workshop Item for each item > Unsubscribe.

    Going into this blind, as usual. Haven't even downloaded the Flat 6 cars yet.

    I'm scared.

    Car behaves much better than first version that I raced with. Gears are not tight and part of that snap is coming from down shifting too early. Have to slow down by braking considerably to match rpm to your next gear down. Also it gets more nervous when front end off-loaded compare to GT3 or GTE cousins. Eats up tires (only softs available) like there is no tomorrow.

    Good to know it isn't just my inefficient driving that is melting them so fast. on average how many laps do you guys see from the tires before noticeable drop off?
