The concertina effect worried me, I was afraid of just slightly looking at some numbers due to the field bunching up.

And yes, I think the SC slowed even more at some points.

I guess the driver was scared of rolling over due to a bad experience earlier in the week :aie:

But as soon as you left a bit of a gap, rF freaked out and told you are to slow...

Oh god, don't mention it... that was horrible.

I thought I'd slow down just a tiny bit on the straight and save some fuel, but as the SC came out way ahead of us(while I was 2nd behind Yves for example), Yves flew towards it and it took me at least half a lap to close the gap.

I once got a back of the line message, but the game kinda took it back when I was close enough again.

The SC was not doing anything strange, its just that this is a street course with tight corners, so the acordion effect is bound gto happen.

Also, rFactor's SC works based on Speed, if you're told you're driving too slow, then you are driving too Slow, not that you're too far away from the next car in line. You can literally be on the other side of the track but so long as you're maintaining proper speed you'll be fine.

He looked back and where he'd taken off, it was way back, 150 yards or more. He looked at the car and he looked way back and he looked at the car and then he said "F@%k"...and that was the story of the Can-Am" -Sam Posey
