It doesn't matter which one you install first out of the patch and addon.

Can I instal the Group 5 patch and the prototypeC v2 into my dedicated Virual_LM instal we used for 1000km and previous Champs?

Yes but it will make the install cause mismatches if you race elsewhere than HSO.

PrototypeC v2a is the patch with new physics from Richard Wilks we have been using f.e. at the Kyalami 1000 kms, but with some very minor updates.

Group 5 patch are the new cars for the WEC82 series, complete with physics from Ricardo.

Both patches are completely compatible, neither will overwrite a file in the other one.

If you put both in your dedicated VLM install I think they will correctly overwrite the previous Richard Wilks physics and add the new cars.

So the 1000km engine is the right one for the race, and quali eine can be used for the q sessions?

Correct.

Qualifying engines can only be used in qualifying.

- Any driver can only drive the Porsche 956 and Lancia LC1 only once during the season.

.....and because it took me 7 attempts to get English Language o-level, I going to have to ask.......

Because I am driving the LC1 at monza, does that mean I cannot race the 956 in future?

You can only drive each one once, I believe. Richard will confirm.

You can still drive the 956. But now you will not be race the LC1 again.

Hi guys, I have a little question:

I read in rules: "Qualifying and Grand Prix engines are banned for the race sessions."

Some cars have up to three engines:

Le Mans, 1000 Km and qualyfing engine.

Which one of these is Grand Prix engine ?

thanks in advance for your reply

1000k is the race engine you must use. :frank:

Only some cars have a Grand Prix engine.

You can use as Alberto says the 1000km engine or the Le Mans engine for the race.

Seeking a bit of clarification before the quali session today...

...during quali, can one "escape" out to the pits and then return to the track once again? Or does escaping out effectively end one's quali session?

Different rules on this at various places I run and being new here I'd like to make sure I don't muck that up.

Thanks in advance...

If you mean going back to the pits by "escaping", then of course. In case your lap gets ruined or something, you can always drive to a safe place and escape back to the pits.
If you leave the server, you can come back as long as qualifying is running to have another go.

:hello:

Good to know I can come back in, in the instance of a disco (rare for me, but still) while quali is ongoing. Though, I would/do always try to minimize that in every way possible. Can cause a bit of stutter issue upon entering the server, for others, at times.

Yes, this is what I was wondering.
I have ran at other places that do not allow for this, and that was the reason I sought clarification on that.

Thanks!

I'd like a clarification on that point. If we're going to miss one or more race, does this rule applies or not?

I have a question in regards to the Group C cars and the rule stating that we can only stop for fuel 5 times during the race.

In the event that I would like to stop for tires, but I don't seek fuel, is it acceptable to set my fuel in the pit menu to whatever I have in the tank (and maybe a tiny bit less, so I am not actually taking on more fuel) and pit, without it being counted against my "pit stops for fuel"?

I'd assume so, but since the rules are only stating that "group C can only stop for fuel 5 times" I'd like to get some clarification on that before the race, just to be sure.

Often, the car doesn't have the exact amount of fuel in the tank that I can access in the HUD...so, I imagine setting it back a tenth of a gallon or two would be sufficient so that I am not penalized for taking fuel too many times.

.........
Probably a bit annoying and a bit of a redundant question...but, being new here, I'd like to get this right rather than bring it up 5 minutes before the race Smile

Thanks in advance.

You can pit for tires as much as you want. Only pitting for fuel is allowed 5 times in the race. Also, to get rid of the trouble of setting the fuel in the pit menu to your current fuel, you can go to your .plr file and search for the line "Relative Fuel Strategy="0" // Show how much fuel to ADD, rather than how much TOTAL fuel to fill the tank up to" under "[Game Options]". Set that value to 1 and the fuel value that you'll see in the pit menu will be the amount of fuel to add. Put it to zero (standard in the mod I think since you can't pre-configure pit stops with the new UI, if I'm not wrong) and you won't be refueling in the pits.

Awesome advice!
Thanks, Pascal.

I didn't know this and this will be really beneficial to me.
Don't know how many times I've forgotten that the HUD, by default, shows total fuel rather than what one is adding. Have set that to 0 in the past and the pit crew decided to listen to me. Took all the fuel out of the tank...empty car. LOL
Lesson learned the hard way...forgot...then did it again, a few times :/

Anyways, thanks a ton!
Off to the plr to make this adjustment.

In the Paddock topic, Mods section, there's a post about tips for rfactor, including this one about fuel. :frank:
