I live in northeastern Pennsylvania and yesterday the air tempersature was 105 and heat index was 115. I started to sweat just thinking about doing something. Today will almost be the same.

Just add a "!" at the end of the extension of the following file: <rFactor>\UIData\XF_FIAGT1_11\UISounds\basstick.wav so it becomes "basstick.wav!". The same technique works on the movies and music from most rF mods too, once you find where the files are (usually not really hard).

I might drop in for a quickie but most likely won't stay very long. That time (4PM here) is not great for me as it's just before (and during) suppertime and I can't get away with that every week...

I practiced a bit and got my times in the low 59s, although not very consistently. At least I'm now turning in the good direction, most of the time... :oops:

How about switching to 45 or 60 minutes races (for all tracks) rather than a set number of laps that we have to adjust every time? (i.e. time-based rather than lap-based races) :?:

Another question....since we are doing fairly long races, why are we doing extra fuel consumption, and extra tire wear? haha. maybe we should just have 2 mandatory pit stops per race....

Yo Steve.I hear it is going to be 112fareheit with the humidity factored in.
Right now it is 43degrees farenheit here.i feel for ya buddy although you must be used to it by now.
as for racing 30 laps is about 1hour of racing and 2pitstops which is about right?
brno is a nice track though.
