Many of you will be aware I've been trying to get these raced for some time now - well now's my chance Wink

For those who haven't driven (or heard of) Formula Easter cars they are a Soviet Formula dating back to the late 1960's- essentially the Lada powered equivalent to Formula Ford except they were allowed Slicks and Wings.
They may not be powerful but they achieve very good lap times and make for fantastic close racing

All cars use the same 4 speed gearbox and 1.3l Lada engine with the various manufacturers then free to build what they want within the rules, given that nearly all cars from the period were built in garages the engineering done was fairly unbelievable if you compare the Soviet budgets with western race series!

All car makes in the mod lap at pretty much the same speed, but to simplify things while I learn my way around the server this race only uses the MTX1-03 cars. You'll find a big selection of them on the server due to the way this car mod was designed - they're all the same physics but have different wheel designs. Unfortunatley this means the setups are saved in different folders for the different car variants.
I recommend learning where the setups are saved and copying what you choose to run with between all of the 1-03 setup folders for incase your choice is fully taken on race night.

If successful I'll plan a further test race using all of the cars and allowing people to choose cars/paint jobs to ensure I get that right if we run a series.

For this race yes - for the series no.
All cars have almost the same performance but different handling I found. At Bikernieki I have the entire line up lapping within 0.2 or so of a second on tuned setups.

With a good grid they won't disappoint Cool

not sure I can make this one. Ive signed up for an ACC race Tuesday and got the GTLegends race Thursday, so trying to fit a new car and new track combo between the two is a big ask  Undecided not to mention causing marital strife of 3 nights consecutive races  Tongue

If I can find some time i'll try and be there.

edit: that track convert looks amazing on the download page video  Cool

Any setup pointers? Gearing was completely off on default, so I assume the rest is as well Smiley.

I see a good number of times popping up now  Smiley

Lots of you are opting for the 3b r3 I've got my time set in.
Just to reiterate - all 3b chassis have the same physics, they just have different physical wheel models.
Reading the description it suggests the 3c's are faster, although my own testing has never shown a difference (and I normally prefer the RAF80 anyway Wink)

I've now chucked a race setup together which I'll share in a bit.  Many of you won't like the handling, but it'll give you a decent gear set, the right fuel load, and a direction for your own tuning.

If the test race process popular I'll run these as my 2nd series to get as much time as possible to attract a decent grid!

This is my current race setup.
It's good for the 20mins +1 lap I have each race set to on the server, and has much better gearing than the stock setup.
1st is only needed at the start - remember these are old 8 valve engines so have tonnes of torque to do the hairpin in 2nd Wink

I have a lot of lift off over steer - to reduce that you can try upping the coast % for the differential or adding more wing. The latter will obviously cost you in speed though.

This setup will work in any MTX1-03b and should work just as well in the 3c's as I'm not aware of any differences in setup options Smiley

With no prospect of any work for at least the next few months, I'm hoping to spend more time on track.

These seem like a lot of fun but my lap times are way off decent. Thanks for the setup FMG I'll give it a go  thumbup1
