I'm using the excellent f1-legends-racing-2-0 mod, which creates the '67 Grand Prix cars in rFactor.  Now I'm looking for the '67 tracks, such as Monaco, Watkins Glen etc. for rFactor.  Where is a good place to find rFactor tracks?  A lot of the old rFactor track sites don't work anymore, while rfactorcentral has a limited number of tracks and is free only for the first 3 downloads(!)  Are there any other sites where I can download rFactor tracks?

Thanks

RaceDepartment (https://www.racedepartment.com/) has some rfactor files.  I have quite a few tracks downloaded from NoGrip years ago, will have to check my CD/DVDs for that.

A quick glance through RaceDepartment's ten pages of rf1 tracks found Nurburgring, Spa, Mosport, Kyalami, Glen, Rouen, and Zandvoort.  A form post there should find others.

Thanks so much, jgf!  Race department is just what I was looking for.  Two more questions about rf1:

1. where can I find an rf1 manual?
2. where is a good place to find rf1 setups?

As for setups, my advice for any car in any sim is to invest the time in learning to create your own.  Using other peoples' setups you will be adapting your driving to their setups, rather than adapting the car to your style of driving;  the latter will not only make you quicker but you will have the knowledge to go to any track and create a setup.

Download a dozen setups for one car at one track and you will find they run the gamut - one person likes a stiff suspension, another prefers a softer suspension, this person likes quick steering, that person likes slower steering;  it's a shot in the dark to find one that you might be comfortable with, and in the time you spend trying these you could learn to make your own.

I don't know Leon. I've visited the site many times without ever getting any viruses or malware. I do know that the site was not working for quite a while but it's back up and it seems to be ok. Anyway,you can find most tracks at the other 2 sites and many at RaceDepartment so there is no need to visit rfactor central if you don't want to. :)
