    There is still just tons of crashing on the 67 mod. I've been trying to get a clean race at Belgium 66. No luck far. Several crashes on the first lap every time. I'm running the AI at 110% (I'm terrible and I could probably go higher than that so something wrong there). AI aggression is at 50% and AI limiter at 25%. I'm going through a full qualification so the cars are getting qualified properly. Doesn't seem to make any difference if I skip qual though. This is basically the exact same problem that I have with the F1 Legends Racing 2.0 67 mod oddly enough but I don't have it much in other mods.

    I've probably done over 10 race starts now and there are several crashes and major slow downs on the first lap. Also, the rF2 trait of the AI burping the throttle to modulate speed is exacerbated in these cars with the whole field doing this with micro lockups all the time in the corners on the first lap so there's lots of tire smoke.

    Any thoughts on what causes this?

    From my own attempts (I play only vintage cars) Belgium 66 is unusable with vintage cars.
    Probably something to do with track ai.
    Also rFactor2 Ai doesn't suit well vintage cars especially cars before 70s.
    Even on Le Mans 67 which has not many difficult curves it's hard to have a decent race with 60s cars.
    Mulsanne is a often total mess in the first laps.
    Monaco 66 has pits issues and too many crashes too.
    I have stopped using Belgium 66 track for this reason, though I find it one of the most beautiful tracks.

    Here is car 10 I will pack them up later today and post here so you can have some fun over easter... still a beta but i am improving :)
    Arguably one of the prettiest F5000 cars of this era, over the 5 or so years Goss raced his cars they showed up in many different configurations, using Chiefs amazing system its possible to produce a fairly good replica of this 78 version...

    Chief you are spoiling my surprises lol I was looking at maybe a 1973 or 74 Tasman series version next assuming I stay motivated:) FYI in 1974 frank matich who designed these car retired after an accident and sold two cars to John Goss the orange version is matich the two pics you have posted show these two cars the matich a53 above and the pescalaro version the matich a51/53. I love this era in Australia because the cars were so varied and the drivers had big personalities like the cars they drove. This is a good read if this topic interests you https://primotipo.com/2015/07/03/john-goss-bathurst-1000-and-australian-grand-prix-winner/

    You can see how these cars took their design cues from the F1 cars... fasicanting stuff :)
