You seem to be having a conversation with yourself.
Let me chime in before people begin to wonder.
The TPTCC ( the pits touring car championship ) is the USPITS version of the PTA mod. TA ( trans am ) is the version that was put out by PWF ( ProjectWildFire ).
Of the two, I prefer TPTCC. It's the one I've been using since it came out ( I only recently installed TA ). More skins seem to be made for TPTCC, and the car shapes ( models ) seem to be more varied. The templates are different for each mod, so if you put a TA skin in TPTCC, the paint job is mismatched ( and vice versa ). It's been a while, but I think the car shapes that originally came with TPTCC are the mustang, vette, viper, and GT40. The car shapes have been morphed into porsches, ferraris, mercedes, saleens, and a myriad of others.
The cars are V8 sportscars. There is only one car physics model, so it doesn't matter what car shape you use.
I could be mistaken, but I think you have to install the GNS mod first, in order to get the some patched characteristics ( damage ? ). You definately have to have the 188.8.131.52 patch, but I assume you've already done that. ( I don't have the gns mod installed and the mod(s) work, so you can delete it if you want. I assume I must have installed gns back in the day, but it's been too long ago to remember. )
The PTA exe is also what runs many mods today ( since iracing raised their ugly head and killed all the modified exe's mods, such as ferrari330 ).
