    If you're having SteamID issues joining (and getting kicked from server) the Session make sure that the Steam DLL is active in your CustomPluginVariables.JSON file:

    },
    "SteamPlugin.dll":{
    " Enabled":1

    Edit: Or Enable the Plug-in in the UI in Options under "Plugins/Difficulty"

    Not saying this is the issue but it might be :)

    So...guys...has anyone done some sort of setup work on this car? Are there obvious things that needs to change?
    1min58-59 seems very far away from what I can do on default set.

    I've messed with my setup a bit, nothing too fancy just lower tyre pressures, more rear wing, and put the rear camber on -1.70. I was running 2:03.0 on default setup, and now I'm down to 2:02.0. I have no clue how on Earth people are getting 1:58, that seems impossible for me. Setup seems to go a long way with these cars though. Wish I could get my hands on their setups, I know absolutely nothing about setting up the suspension side of things. Probably a lot of time to be gained there.

    It would be good if the comp was locked to a setup somehow, so everybody is on equal grounds and it's all the driver, not whoever's car setup is the best. It's Worlds Fastest Gamer, not Worlds Fastest Car Setup.

    I was also on the server and ABS was certainly not enabled. It was really easy to lock up with default braking setup. I tested with low ABS before entering the server.

    Idk how they do that either, aliens are just insane. Kinda suck when you join a league and there is like only one of them so there is no competition on the top, they usually also have very fragile feelings :D

    Well setup work is probably as important (or even more important) as going fast in simulator job.

    I was also doing 2:02 (though I don't see 2:00 impossible). Just a lot of traffic there. I'm usually 1-3 seconds behind the fastest guys depending on track and my own performance so being 4 seconds slower was bit of surprise. I had problems with braking which probably cost me a lot.

    I feel you brother. I can manage mid 02's with the default, but the car just feels slow in general. Unhappy on the brakes, lazy in the med-high speed corners (lazy to get the front settled and turn in).
    Sub 2 mins feel years away, never mind 1min58

    I wasn't so surprised of people doing 1:58 and 1:59 but more the amount of drivers capable of pulling off those times.

    Maybe we should build a non alien setup here together?:cool:
    I am going to tinker around a bit this evening, and look at my other GT3 mod setups I have (even GTE cars maybe) and see if they can help improve this cars laptimes around Sstone

    EDIT: I think it will mostly be sector 2 that most time can be made with a compliant car

    Do they supply a password or something, or how does it work when you have registered?

    Yes, I agree. It would be odd to put a car that's been freely available for ages into the paid pack.
    Good news if that's the case - as I said, that'll make 6 GT3s total. :cool:

    Would people agree that theres a significant difference to ISI cars to s397s cars. Not in a bad way, just a different feeling in handling/ffb etc?

    That depends.
    They can easily add a Camaro due to the fact the 2012 model doesn't comply to the year model of the car new GT3 pack( things like championship rule/regulations as well as BOP measures).
    I can almost see them adding a Camaro in there as easily as any of the other GT3 cars for 2016/17.

    I would be extremely disappointed if that would be the case. I think it's more likely that they just update the Camaro for free.
