Game crashes after extracting files. Any tips on what to do? I am certain all files are in the right place, even went over original extraction to make sure.

Hi, im fairly new to rFactor and really enjoying it, and as a child of the Hot Rod Paddock/Pits throughout the 70's 80's and 90's with my cousin racing Hot Rods for 20 years and making world finals, imagine my joy when i discovered this mod!

i would like to know if there are any Templates for these cars so i could recreate my cousins livery. he raced against George Polley and Barry Lee and even beat them on very wet nights at Wimbledon stadium during the winter series in the late 80's . If i could recreate his livery then i would be a very happy man thanks again for such a fantastic mod.

Is there a version of this mod with physics suitable for road courses?

If not, would there be any complaints if I were to create HDVs with suspension settings suitable for road courses? I love the older little cars, just not a fan of driving in a circle.

Yes you could be quite right Mighty, my wheel is a damned old thing but it's worked OK with most mods I've installed so far and that's a fair few. I'm not sure about the force feedback settings and they could possibly be set to rFactor default, I'll check that out next time I try the mod and report back....

thanks for the help bro....

Interesting that only you have a problem where the cars don't handle well Jon and we haven't heard this from anyone else. Are you sure you're running this mod or are you mistaken? There are virtually no instances where you would have to "force" opposite lock in these cars, they have more than enough power for their weight and grip to break traction on the exit of every bend. What wheel are you using and what ffb setup do you use? These cars as stated are built to work with a properly set up real feel plugin only and using the rFactor ffb will make them pretty much undriveable. There's plenty of evidence of them being driven with both push and loose setups all over youtube without spinning the cars at all, so this can only lead me to believe the problem is not with the mod but lies somewhere else. The tyre model is so "untwitchy" and forgiving that actually most people who have spent time racing the mod actually have commented that they would like to see the tyre physics become slightly tighter and more rewarding to the driver who finds the perfect amount of slip in future releases so how you can't find a fast was around a bend with a little oversteer is actually beyond me, but we are here to help if you need advice.

The cars don't handle well at all. if you push them hard enough to force opposite lock they just don't react to the opposite lock and just keep spinning round, the only way to get them driving in a reasonable fashion is to not go much over 50mph..and no, it isn't how I've got the set up, and no it isn't how I drive them, I can get other mods to handle perfectly well at good racing speeds but these cars just do not act realistically.
