    yes! most fun i've had behind the wheel in long time.

    making the mod for H-shifters and any attemp to balance the differences between H-shifter vs sequential users is appreciated more than you can imagine.
    the approach to get the balance that the simracers.de LE 1975 F1 has is awesome! i wish this mod would get that feature aswell. forcing to lift properly makes it so much more authentic when using H-shifter.

    thank you so much for all your work, and for listening our gripes and whines, and allways replying to comments.
    you are a exeamplary modder for this or any community!

    Actually I have idea to include this lifting to other mods too. Not the way I did for simracers.de, but still :)

    If I was told I could only have one track it would be Brands Hatch. Perfection for me would be the layout after the Paddock Hill Bend re-profile with the original Westfield. Exactly as faced by some of these cars.
    Of all the versions I've driven in sims this is my favourite, the only problem is that for some reason on-line I have a stutter that gets progressively worse through the session in the second half of the GP loop. Didn't have that problem off-line.

    I'll keep going as this combination is still a dream for me.

    Oh, and big thanks Postipate for allowing me to live out those childhood dreams. And Ari for hosting them!

    I looked your ping yesterday and it is fine and that is not the cause to stutters. Brands is bit demanding to GFX card and you get often stutters when other cars are a round. Perhaps lowering opponent, shadows and AA details could help.

    Ok Posti, give us one last update that addresses the engine braking and being able to see the cars in the selection area and you can go on a 2 month vacation, no forum posts, or anything of the sort, don't even think about rF2, you've earned it, however this is only a suggestion lol.

    There seem to be low interest to online racing in rFactor 2 only few guys has used servers in last 14 days :oops:. I have shut down F1_1979_Official_Server_2 and F1_1979_Official_Server_3.o_O

    I keep F1_1979_Official_Server_1 server online for now.

    Fuel usage: Normal
    Tyre wear: Normal
    Damage: 50%
    Auto Clutch on
    Practice: 60 min.
    Qualify: 10 min.
    Race:15 min.

    Tracks:
    Kyalami GP (1975) (199 451 kb)
    Silverstone GP (1975) (98 905 kb)
    Zolder 79 (67 249 kb)
    Dijon 79 (78 002 kb)

    Total download size of all the four tracks is 443,6 mb which is not much more then one ordinary rFactor2 track and download size should not scare anybody off :confused:. Tracks and can be downloaded from the online lobby. Server is using Noel Hibbart`s GetMod service ;)

    on 5 july i wrote this pm to motorfx, author of rf1 1979 trackpack:

    hi motorfix
    i saw you are track modder of the great 1979 track pack.
    with some friends on rf2 community, if is it possible, we like to convert trackpack to rf2.
    so we ask you permission for that, logically mention original GPC79 authors in credits.
    is it possible?
    tk,
    Mauro

    today he answer me:
    Yes sure
    cheers, Ken

    So if there are track modders who wants to try, there are all permissions for converting all 1979 rf1 tracks.
    (one important thing is that tracks needs mesh update for working well on rf2)

    Occasionally I run across a few gems as I read old books & magazines & cruise the internet. Found this a few days ago and have attached measured Lotus 79 aerodynamic and suspension data. It is a composite of several hi-resolution scans from "New Directions in Suspension Design, Making the Fast Car Faster" by Colin Campbell, 1980. He published this info with permission from "Motor", who published the original study. There may be more in the "Motor" article, but I don't have access to any issues. Hope you find it useful.
