    Good question :). Well, from the shy car Poll we have the Abarth/Adam who are in front. And from the single-car/single-class Poll, we'd need to run single-class races. Except there's no perfect equivalent for the Abarth :). Therefore, we'll split the season. First 6 races with the Abarth, last 6 races with the Adam.

    I wasn't sure if it's safe or not. It seems there is no problem, my bad.

    What is a Steam ID?
    When someone signs up for a Steam account, a unique identifier is allocated to that account. This is a Steam ID. A Steam ID is public information and is safe to share with other people. You should treat your Steam ID the same way you would treat a link to your Steam Profile.


    And come to think about it.. it's normal, because anyone could look it up anyways. More, if you've linked your steamid to your account on AC forums for example, I can see it directly. D'oh !

    All right, now you need to find that magic number (or nick, if you have a custom URL). Here's a simple way:


    Once you did find it, please add it in your registration post. I'll setup the entry_list using this information.

    Huston, we have a problem (or one of them) :).

    FUEL. When the car poll was started, I did some tests with 1M, Adam, and a few other cars. But not with the Abarth. Which has a small tank apparently. Had a few laps with it today, and it seems that fuel is not enough for 45 minutes. By my calculations, it should be OK for about 30-32 minutes (aka 13-14 laps on Imola).

    Proposals:
    1/ Either the first 6 races with the Abarth will be shorter

    2/ Either we use the Adam for the entire championship (which seems to last way longer).

    What say you ?

    I would say, start the first 6 races with the abarth with shorter races.

    Come to think about it, maybe we can do it backwards: start the first 6 races with the Adam, and meanwhile 1.0 should be out, with working pitstops. How about it ?

    I would be ok with it, IF it would start next week and not tomorrow. I (just as everyone else) anticipated for an abarth race and thus have trained for that. tomorrow now it's too soon.

    Fair enough. We could, in this case, keep the Abarth race for tomorrow, and do the switch for Adam next week.
    Hope other will express their opinions as well.

    OR.. (sorry for multiple suggestions :D) we could diminish fuel rate consumption in server settings so it will consume a little bit less :).

    that's a better idea. Do make it so that you can have 1 lap extra fuel (because spins etc)

    All right. Will apply this until pit-stops will be possible.
    Normal fuel usage is 100%. After some calculations, seems that 70% is perfect for what we need to do (aka 45min race).

    The name of the server will always be the same: ASSETTOCORSAMODS.NET
    Check the filters you have in the server list (booking filter maybe ?). Here are mines, and looking up MODS, this is the result:

    Thanks to @TCLF's suggestion (using steamID) server doesn't require booking anymore. So the 30 minutes booking session becomes free-practice session, and you can hop in whenever you wish. :)

    Server will be restarted at 17:30 UTC. From that onwards, the schedule in the first post will be active ;)

    I used a custom one, but I'm not sure if it was a faster one. 0 toe in means a very tine bit of gain in top speed, but again so much turning speed is lost. Next time I'm with one with some different toe settings
