I'm getting can't connect to server message in cm, no error. I re-installed the track as I saw I had version 1.0 from before and this is v1.1. Anyone else having trouble connecting?

Am I being stupid? I have downloaded the track but cannot extract it. Using Winrar I just get a series of errors, using Unrar Metro I get asked for a password but it will not let me enter anything into the box. Help!

Geoff - You might be running a very old version of Winrar and need to update (this is normally the case for these issues). I have version 5.91 (64bit) and no problems. The archive is definitely NOT passworded!

Syd - it looks like the server was still running V1.0.
As the dates for it were correct for 1.1 I hadn't updated the files (Didn't have time to join and test last night).

It appears to be running fine now that I've updated it Smiley

Updated my Watkins Glen from 1.0 to 1.1 using Winrar and didn't have any problems Geoff, just deleted 1.0 before installing as per the instructions.

Thanks for putting this up Tim  thumbup1 I really like these cars although they remind me more of trucks from a bygone era rather than modern prototypes. Enjoyed watching this series a few years ago too, always entertaining despite the OTT US presentation. URD do a GTE carpack from this era as well which costs tuppence and is great fun for some offline multiclass action.

Here's an onboard of Jordan Taylor in the Dallara to get you in the mood.

OK, thanks FMG & GT, I will try updating Winrar later & see if that is the problem.

Tried one of the cars yesterday and these are pretty decent to drive I guess. Should give some good battles. Looking forward to it.

As I will have a back surgery next week, I am not sure when I will be able to race with you guys again. Should be up and running in a couple of weeks i guess.

These are easier than expected to drive around defaults. Still the slowest of those tested so far..but still fun to push, just need ot try and get the fronts to stop sliding so much

I was trying to see a difference... are they not just the same car?

I will say these are the only cars I've see where the car visibly changes depending on setup changes, primarily the aero body kit, changing the louvre settings and the high downforce kit.

The Dallara and Coyote were indeed separate builds in real life but who knows how far IER went to model these differences. They do feel very similar in game so any differences must be subtle.

Those aero packages have a pretty drastic effect on top speed/handling as well as looking very cool.
