Did you download the complete installer or everything individually?

Individually - I even unsubscribed and resubscribed to all the tracks but i'll give the complete installer a try now. I assume this just goes into the package folder as per usual?

Is there a particular trick or style to driving these things? I'm really struggling to the Vectra to turn in properly and to make my front tires last longer than 2 laps? :eek:

Old question, but I'll give it a shot

1) Setup helps. When you're on, ask for one from someone, there's quick peeps in every manufacturer
2) I've found I need to turn in earlier than I usually would in a RWD car and almost treat it like a v8 super on exit (smooth on the throttle)
3) Many laps
