Expansion Packs:

Race 07 has many expansion packs and are very cheap, alot of the newest mods available require GTR EVO and Race ON expansions to run

Packs can be bought at steam or raceroom.com keep an eye on steam they frequently have 50% sales every other month were u can get packs for $2 :)

Mods:

Race 07 has a huge modding community with tons of car add ons, tracks, graphic enhancements, patches,  and ingame user tools.

The best sites ive come across are listed below

Note: nogripracing has a 100mb daily download limit, and the german site can be switched to english by clicking on the British flag located at the top of the page, you must also register to the sites to be able to download content

http://www.nogripracing.com/files.php?maincat=5

Adding Mods:

first you will need a program to open the zip files.  the ones that i suggest are 7-zip or winwar

2nd...ive found some files at nogrip racing are a little tricky and you will need to create 3 folders within your race 07 folder

Your race folder should be located in program files or program files (x86) under steam\steamapps\username\race07\

inside your Race folder you will need to create a Gamedata folder within that folder you will need to create 2 seperate folders.  Teams and Locations

The 2 german sites and most of nogrip are very simple just extract the file to your Race 07 folder and it will sort everything for you!

Now your ready to install your mod!

unzip your file and extract it to the following location

C:\Program files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\username\race07\

Always read the read me if availableand back up your files before installing incase something goes wrong

Note: sometimes the file wont have a gamedata folder if so......tracks get extracted to your locations folder and cars and series mods go to  your teams folders

Must have Graphics enhancements!

Wheel setup:

This is more of a personal thing so i wont go into great detail

In your wheel profile its suggested to use these setting and is also what i use for the g27

Combine pedals uncheck

degrees of rotation 900 (but it sounds like 540 is very popular for this title

enable force feedback 100-107%

spring effect 0

damper effect 0

Center spring stregnth check set to 0

allow game to adjust unchecked

Ingame settings for force feedback,

alot of people crank the ffb to max, but from what ive read by setting it so high your actually cancelling out some of the important feelings.  this is what ive taken in

low=tire grip and road

med=tire grip, road, brakes

high=tire grip, roads, brakes, curbs, engine

max=tire grip,  roads, brakes, curbs, engine, vibrations other car and ingame sounds

I set mine to med and crank ffb and steering strength to 100 and leave the rest at stock settings

But again its personal choice ive tried many configs, and found these gave me the best feeling of the road and my cars actions.

The most important setting to adjust ingame in car setups is steering lock set to 22-25 degrees....lower for rwd higher for fwd

H pattern shifter: in controller settings you will need to config. your shifter, very easy scroll down to yours gears right click to unbind and the set your gears repeating till there all set

Sounds:

I watched a video @ insidesimracing and they said one of the most important data to know what your car is doing is sound settings, like fbb if you max everything its just gets overloaded and important data is  lost in the mix

Max out tires, tire scrub and engine and turn everything else down to 5-10% only other one i turn up is road noise and player car sounds 30-40%

Another interesting tip i learnd is in the visual section, that if your look to apex view is higher than 10% it will give a false reading of understeer to your wheels ffb causing your tires to scrub losing valuable time.  I have settled with 5%

Resourceful sites of interest and organized leagues:

Hopefully this will help with the intial setup hassels, and give some helpfull tips along the way!  Next ill work on mods that have really brought the game to life!

 

Cheers

Thnx m8, iam not the best writer and tend to ramble but it is what it is lol

as for the game its similar to rfactor, alot of the mods are transfered from one another, and the game is uber cheap.  I bought 90% of the game during steams summer sale for $20 they had a bundle that pretty much had everything for $25 in race injection not sure if they still have it they change them up every so often.  the one i would suggest at first are race 07, gtr evo and race on bundle alot of the mods need them to run.

I played race07 this weekend. With the thrustmaster ts500. What a great feeling game with that wheel. I had no problems getting online races. Most of the time there would be at least 12 to 15 people per race. It was 20 minute qualifing for a 6 lap race. but that gave me time to learn the new tracks. I will post the wheel setup if anyone is interested. My GT is oldrustybelly55 but my driver name online is greg connelly.

Oh for gods sake I get the main R07 downloaded and try to play and it is updating another two hours at the least...why not sent the updated program in the first place, just throwing away my download allowance like that is most irritating,  I may even have to spread the download of the whole pack over two months if they all do that. Grrrrr

Been playing with it today...seems easier to drive than rFactor, though that could be because I am better with rFactor than I was, as I suspected I am going to have to wait a month to finish the downloads, they are all rather big. So far I've got the base program, STCC2 and Formula Raceroom one 5th of my allowance in one foul swoop. Would love to race against some real folk but alas...unless it is during the afternoon or early evening GMT my interwebs wont let me.
