    Hi folks!

    Sorry its been a while since ive been active on here but ive been busy with my Youtube Channel, sorting out a dedicated server with the help of my good friend Pete, general life and also my PC is getting more and more unwell, full shut downs are very regular now:(

    However good news! Between Pete and I we've managed to sort out a Dedicated server on a reliable PC!

    Ive been making videos on the new Radical SR3 XX (amongst other topics) and the old FREE SR3 RSX, so ive decided to make a Radical server with the Free RSX version, because they're fecking awsome!

    So the POTATO IS LIVE! Go check it out, just search for server begining with the word POTATO

    Tracks on server are: Silverstone, Toban, Lime Rock, Zandvoort. Auto downloads are enabled so you should have no probs getting on, if you do just subscribe to this content on steam, but you should'nt have to.

    Sessions are 15mins Quali, 10mins Race, no practice or warmup sessions

    Enjoy!

    Also incase anyones interested, here's what the racing in like with the Radical, its just against A.I. but should give you a good idea:

    Pete and I have just been having a blast in a Palatov and a Caterham, was great! He had no probs joining, plus he's already got half the content so D/L only took a couple of mins for him.

    This looks great!
    I'm giving it a test drive right now (the "Tarmac Terrorist" Nordschleife server). I appreciate that you've got a decent selection of cars available - particularly a couple of good (free) open wheelers.
    Nice work :)

    Yeah the server works great.
    Well set up & I really like the in game "car select" feature.
    I either haven't noticed that before, or more likely, I suspect quite a few people don't seem to use it.
    I made a quick list of the cars available - which is in the thumb-nail below. I only expanded out cars where there are multiple versions (like different years) and the ones that aren't expanded to a full list should be pretty obvious (eg: the "AC Cars" is the official 427 Cobra).
    If you expaned the list completely it would be a much bigger image and it's more convenient (in my opinion) to have a quick reference list.
    Anyway, I'm back on for another lap or two when I manage to shuffle the cat I have on my lap off somewhere else.
