When ISI released the updates to Monaco and Spa, I decided I'd try running the classic cars. It was an instant hit. I was brought up with a clutch and manual transmission (well, three on the column, to be honest), so this is just a perfect fit for me. I like it so much, I abandoned by 2013 F1 series. But the Brabhams are so damned hard to drive. So I thought I'd seek some tips on running them. Since the first F1 race in 1966 was in Monaco, that's where I'm practicing...over and over and over. Lots of spinouts. Lots of crashes (some very dramatic, by the way). I found with the default setup, I never got it into fifth gear. I shortened the gears and now can get into fifth after The Bump. But slowing down from top speed is such a challenge, too. My guesses at this point are that the default gears are too far apart, that braking for Monaco has to be weighted much more to the rear tires, that you retain better control using the transmission than you do slowing down with the brakes. I also have this "thing" where the car will stall out after a spin and I have to hit the S key to start. Sometimes upon restarting, it will respond to the accelerator pedal; other times it will not and just shuts down again and I may have to hit the starter several times and pump the pedal to get any rpms. I think driving these cars at that time must have been a hell of an adventure.
