    Hiyay Wishmaster, having driven all of the Apex cars the BMW Z4 is easily the most consistently quick car for how I drive. All of the cars are fairly heavy understeerers on but still quick (BOP is exceptional) and unless you overdrive them, (guilty) the tyres last well too once you find a setup. Good advice as usual from Davidporeilly. Particularly for the BMW more ( meaning more negative) camber on the front will add to your problems of understeer. Do try more positive front camber settings, you might be pleasantly surprised. I find these cars are very sensitive to rebound settings and a high rebound on the front will again compound any understeer issue you may have. Good luck, they are very rewarding cars with persistence. Like all cars you can't get a good feel in 1 or 2 laps, 5+ laps is required to fine tune.

    Anyone explain why v0.92 has just been put up on remote content and not v0.930.

    Thank You

    Yeah I realize all that, I subscribed anyways ( I have non-steam )


    Did someone else add v0.92 then or is there some other reason you added it now ? , that is all I was wondering.

    Just weird lately, ASR has new listing for v1.86 rather then v1.865 ?

    Then there is a new V8Supercar15 v2.01 at bottom there ...... I got no idea on that one. lol

    Well, with ASR 1.86 was their own work, Frenk did his changes on top and ASR provided that 1.865 option

    Is the separate sound package still necessary?

    I take that to mean Apex did not put the 0.92 on the remote content tab in the rF2 launcher. We know Apex is managing the Steam download.

    It would seem to be in Apex's interests to list the 0.930 version in the remote content tab so that unknown parties who put old versions are overridden.

    Someone is Publishing Content that is old or not working. Don't know who though, I guess anybody can do it? There should be an "Uploader" identification so there is a responsible party as well as a "Date Published".
    There is quite a bit of "Published Content" that is out of date or not working.
    There were over a dozen files uploaded within the past few days.
    Looks like this could get out of hand quickly huh?
    I too am also non steam and not going to steam.
    All the FVR cars have been posted with no working links as Failed Verification gets prompted when trying to Download and Install. (for me)
    As you said the AM FIA GT3 is an old build. There is also an Old build of SCES Daytona, URD EGT Vettes as well as a few more.
    Cheers for the heads up DD ;)

    Alpha-Bravo was kind enough to forward me his Motec data of the 40 laps race they ran on line last sunday at Mid-Ohio.
    Driving a Mc Laren, he won the race with a best lap in race of 1 19 831, without changing tires in the whole race, his last lap was still under 1 21...
    At the end of the race the tire wear was

    FL 30.4
    FR 22,6
    RL 20,01
    RR 21,4

    Congratulations, no doubt he is a fine driver and that he had done his homework with the setup.

    Cheers.

    Thank you Lgel! Makes me proud to read this [emoji4].

    I' still in the learning process but with the handbook of david things are now easier to understand and as a result my setups are getting better and more stable. The hardest part was to get a stable rear on the track part with the up and down waves. Some changes on the fast rebound rear dampers a bit adapting the line did the trick.

    Have to say it was a real pleasure to drive this car, track and setup combination. It happen not very often to me that I get some good feedback from the sim because of this it was possible to drive the car most time on the border between grip and slip. In case of over or understeer it was always possible to correct the line with very small inputs on the throttle or brake. With every lap I was more and more confident with the handling of the car.
    It was a real good feeling to drift over all four wheels in a corner (for example first left after start finish) in case of to much enter speed a very small input on the brake to transfer the weight to the front was enough.

    I know there are a lot of faster drivers then me out there. Hope to see them on the next race on track.
    If anyone is interested in my setup for the MP4 and Mid-Ohio pm me I will share it with you.

    greets alex

    I've found the McLaren to be an interesting challenge for setting up. Take away the aero and you can't tune out the inherent oversteer! Of course adding rear downforce then creates an aero push, so you have to strike the proper balance for the track you're driving.
