This is a fix for the dashboard of some of the McLaren-Elva Mk2 Chevy 333ci (brm slot) online cars.  The released dashboard had incorrect gauges, mainly the tach.
Drop this file into the \cars\canm66\brm\ folder.

Here is the in-car with the incorrect gauges and the dashboard after the gauges have been replaced.

You are most welcome, guys!

We have a CA66 Mod add-on in the works.  There will be a complete carset/track updates for the '66 USRRC.... with the cars available from within the '66 Can-Am mod.

Hi all,

How to fix the Lola t70 MK II Ford 427 gear ratios? Currently I can only get 2 gears? Gears 2,3 and 4 all have the same ratio and can't be edited? You can enter different ratios but that has no effect.

Thanks.

From Lee200 Gearing Article

"...engines do not produce the same amount of torque throughout their rpm range and there is always a maximum torque rpm. Good racing engines produce a broad torque range where the torque does not deviate much from maximum over a wide range of rpm. If the engine torque band is wide, then fewer gears are needed and the engine is easier to drive. However, many racing engines do not have a broad torque range which requires the use of several gears to generate decent driving torque over a wide speed range.

A good example is in the 1967 Sports Car Mod. The Chaparral 2F engine produced gobs of torque across a wide rpm range. In fact, these cars only needed a 3 gear transmission! On the other hand, the 1967 BRM P115 F1 engine had very little torque to start with and the torque range was narrow. This required the use of a 6 gear transmission which spawned the joke that you rowed the BRM more than you drove it.
