    In late 1963 Henry Ford II decided that if Ferrari couldn't be bought, he would be beaten - by a Ford - cost no object. But Ferrari wouldn't go down without an epic fight!

    The mod is fine tuned for both offline and online racing. The cars are fully balanced for performance while still maintaining its own particular driving characteristics.

    These cars are designed to be driven using H-Pattern shiftting and the heel and toe technique. You can still paddle shift them in the sim but you will have to reasonably lift the throttle on the upshifts and blip on downshifts to avoid considerable clutch slippage. This is done to reduce some of the advantage sequential shifting generally enjoys online.

    Tire wear and fuel usage are realistic for the era but this does mean that pitstops are only needed for long races. Using the fuel and tire multipliers (of 2x or 3x) will generally force a pit stop every 20 to 30mins. Due to the realistic low tire wear rubbering of the track is also slow. It is recommended to increase the track progression multiplier to between 2x (for short tracks) and 5x (for long tracks) if you start with a none or light usage level. Alternatively just set the usage/rubbering to high if you don't want to wait for the track to rubber up.

    Pit stops are slow. Fuel and Tires can be taken at the same time. A full tank takes approximately 40 seconds to refuel (with each car differing slightly). To replace all four tires it takes approximately 50 seconds. These values were chosen for realism as well as to make taking tires (or not!) a tactical decision. Taking tires with a full tank of fuel will cost you approximately 10 extra seconds in the pits - but you will have fresh rubber! It's also possible to take only 2 tires and less of a full tank of fuel to save even more time depending on the conditions.

    A recommended race length is of at least 50 minutes to take full advantage of everything the mod has to offer.

    Hey , I have used Moza R 21 , Simucube Pro and VRS Direct force Pro. I am currently using my favorite DD System ( Simxperience Accuforce Pro ) It has by far the best tuning software on the market.
