No problem, Paul. Until race day you can switch, if it will be available.

Found a couple problems I was having with this mod.

1. First the cars just didn't feel right. Why because I had TC set to low. So switched that off and went a second faster without it.
2. The car still felt a bit docile from what I remembered. Deleted the RealFeelPlugin.ini file that comes with the install and overwrites your file if it's present. The car felt way better. So beware this mod install overwrites the RealFeelPlugin.ini file with it's own. This means you'll loose any settings for other mods you may have spent a lot of time setting up.

I'll stick with the Fiat as I was finally getting to grips with it even though it has very little grip itself :)

Hi Paul.

be patient and let me understand... ;)


I delete the RealFealPlugin installed by Historix with the original of RF, right?

Thanks
Steve

Keep calm and wait the chequered flag...

Phil, we need you in GP1979, where have you been on Sunday? :laugh:

* * * * *

I answered Paul on FB, I will paste it here again:

Ad.1
Paul, if you are racing with TC (Traction Control) - mod gives weight penalty, so with all helps off - better times. It works in GP1979 too and it's normal. Special mods where TC is a part of the mod (modern F1), don't have this issue.

Ad.2
I don't use realfeel plugin, so I can't say anything. I have 17" screen so my feel of reality is so low but I had big fun of driving Mini yesterday. The only minor thing is the popularity of the mod. It's great mod, but people don't like it. As I spoke with Michal Lewera who was online with us yesterday - I burned Mini engine after just 9 laps or hardcore speeding. He says it's normal and real, because these engines are weak and small, almost factory made. I changed the style of driving and my engine was just a little bit worn (from 100% to 99.7%) after 2 laps - laptime was almost 1 s. slower. So, engine management and tire wear will be the key to victory. Of course Falcon is maybe the fastest car even on slower tracks, but he will eat tires faster and it's harder to make stable laptimes.

My goal for the series: having fun and finish the race.

If you use RealFeel then either

Don't copy the .INI file over in the first place. You can see it listed in the archive so you don't have to copy it over.
OR
Before installation make a copy of your existing INI file and then copy it back.

Of course you could try their INI file before you take a decision on whether you like the RealFeel defaults or their own stab at setting it up.

The issue I had was I could no longer feel objects on the road through the steering such as curbing. Once I went back to the defaults all of that reappeared. So really it's up to you which you use and prefer. I just wanted to point out that the installation overwrites the INI file. This means you could potentially loose a lot of settings for other mods you spent hours fine tuning. So beware!!!

In all my years of rF1 I didn't know they added a weight penalty to using TC. Had TC switched to low for the GP79 race hence why it was on. I just thought the acceleration out of the corner was subject to interference and therefore wasn't as quick as managing the traction yourself. But with TC ON I definitely go slower.

As for the engine wear I recommend everyone use XD. This will show you the engine wear as a percentage. When practicing check out what makes the engine wear and don't do it. For instance revving in excess of 9500 rpm in the Abarth will cause massive drops in the engine wear. Keep the gear changes at 9000 rpm and beware of blipping the throttle too vigorously and you should be your fine. The Lotus Cortina and the Falcon seem to be pretty hardy beasts and suffer next to no engine wear. The highest engine wear for me in practice over 10 laps was the Abarth followed by the Jaguar. XD is the only way you'll see the engine wear. I tried GID but the engine wear status doesn't work for me which is a shame because it has better fuel calculations giving fuel in both laps left and time left.

For reducing engine wear and you don't mind reducing the authenticity of gear changing try the 2nd option in the Gearbox upgrade for the car you have chosen. Can't remember how it's worded something like 2 pedal heal and toe with no (mis-shift). Seems to work for me.

Oh and I got rid of the Grinding tranny plugin. It only created an annoying sound and didn't really help me change gear at the right revs anyway.
