    yeah, Monaco 66 should work now, had yesterday a 45 min Practice without any Crash from the AI
    I will upload a Update for the Cooper later, with new Icons (thx to Mauro), new Physic Update for the Cooper (thx to Nicola) and a new Sound for the Maserati Engine

    This is really great stuff. just done a 20 lap race of Monaco 66 in the Cooper, AI set to 98% as I am not quite with them yet, 20 cars in the line up, good mix after Quali as well. Finished in second place, sweating like a pig but thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Brilliant job I cant wait for the next cars! I will put up some screen shots when i get time.

    thx Guys!

    new Update is ready and uploaded

    @JamesB, good to hear, this mean your shifting and RPM management is good, because you had no Engine blowup

    I did miss a gear at Spa yesterday in practice and popped the engine! But not today. Am used to heel and toe in RL anyway as I have classics and used to drive racing cars years ago. I love using the H pattern on these and all 3 pedals at once.

    Did you just say you forgot the 67 Eagle? :) One of the most beautiful race cars ever made.

    I really hope the Eagle is the next one on the list. It probably would have won a few more races in '67 if it was reliable.

    There was a McLaren. It is actually already made for rF2 by the Garage team. I really hope their projects are not dead. But I'm afraid they might be.

    These cars seem well balanced at the moment so using one from a different mod team will unlikely work, but I look forward to seeing any vehicle from these guys, the work is top notch. Going to do some more Monaco tonight I think.

    Totally loving the Cooper chief! It was always my favourite car from GPL. I recommend everyone try one of these beasts around the Isle of Man circuit Jim converted. It's about 18 minutes of pure bliss each lap.

    Did Gurney need a taller roll bar like he needed extra vertical room in the GT40?

    The cars are beautiful. Thank you for all the work. However they seem to be much too fast for 1967. A 1:13 at Kyalami is about 15 seconds faster than Hulme's pole time. Fun, and easy to drive tho. :) Good feedback through the wheel and good sounds.

    Got to say, that's a VERY good looking car......Considering that any "style" to the car is all in the nose cone its quite striking how good looking it is. Great work again, love it.
