Don't drive like an idiot, and pay attention to the flags.

Don't flip Marko Tulska. Unless it's Flip Marko Tulska Day or if flipping him would be really funny.

Car Choice[edit]

Track Limits[edit]

Feel free to run wide on corner entry/exit, just expect to be called a pussy and insulted in public especially if you wreck someone because of it.

Extra Stuff[edit]

- Do you want to be at least decent at racing? Are you shit? Are you new to multiplayer racing games and you don't think you're shit? Please read How to Practice and Finish Well.

- Presence on Mumble is not mandatory, but encouraged. Especially if you want to hear dumb chatter and the occasional funny rage, or if your game shits the bed it's much easier to get help with it quickly that way.

- While the series is open for anyone to join, please practice until you feel comfortable around the track before joining the race.

- These cars use varying amounts of ABS and TCS in real life. Do not be ashamed to activate them if you are struggling. Optimal TCS is 1 or 0 though.

- Have a penalty? Need to pit for damage? Read this.

- If you are experiencing low fps and your game seems to be in slow motion, try reading this.

Shift Points[edit]

Don't trust the lights in the car. The models were made by Indians being paid less than minimum wage.

Use this hud (place in Installed\HUD). Change to the HUD in single player in the options menu. Shift when the HUD rev lights turn blue.

HOW MUCH FUEL DO I NEED?[edit]

1800(which is 30 minutes in seconds)/leader's fastest lap in seconds=amount of laps for race.

Look at your HUD and at the bottom right it shows you your fuel left and how much you use per lap. Multiply that by the amount of laps for the race.

ex. On a track that takes the leader 1:30 to get around: 1800/90=20 20*3.10L per lap=62L needed for the race. Don't trust the in game fuel calculator in the setup menu.

Wat Car Iz Gud?[edit]

This BoP kinda really sucks ass. If you don't really have any idea what you're doing, especially in the setup menu, use the Aston Martin Vantage or Callaway Corvette. They're easy to drive and also the fastest. The BMW M6 is also a very good car, but not as easy. Make sure to use Soft tires and set the tire pressure to the lowest.

Some setups have been posted in the Setups cell on the Google doc. It's updated whenever so if you're looking for one check there.

How do I Change My Name?[edit]

\AppData\Roaming\.rFactor edit the rFactor.name file in a text editor.
