Is that what prevents the sand traps from becoming quick sand traps?

I applied it when I installed 2.1 but still my race is over if I go into the kitty litter.  Even the GT40 can't pull itself out.

Thanks,

Art.

Yes, Terrain patch adds a bit of grip when off course, like in the gravel.  Without the TP, I can get the big-engine cars out by working the throttle, but it takes time.  100% throttle will get you no where.  The low HP cars are beached if they get stopped deep in the gravel without the TP.  If the game had a way to sim getting a wrecker assistance then this would be realistic.

With the TP on, the high HP cars drive out of gravel pretty easily and the low HP cars do so with a little more difficulty (work the throttle, don't simply floor it).

Always watch your engine temps when doing this as high revs/low speed = overheating.

OK, maybe I didn't apply it properly.  Popping the clutch got me about 2 ft at a time in the GT40  I'll re-do the patcher and see what happens.

Thanks.

Yep, repatched and it's good, thanks!

I keep on  ending up in the kitty litter and can't get out. I haven't applied the Terrain patch and since I am away from home for a while, I do not have any of the installation discs to put it in BUT, isn't there a "Shift-R" equivalent (for practice anyway) ?  I know that I had it programmed to one of my wheel buttons (DFP pro GT) but it is not there any more.  Can anyone help ?

From the menu system you'll find a configurable keyboard setting for resetting your car (restoring it back to a road):

Control / Buttons / Game: Reset Car

It defaults to E, IIRC.. Posted Image

cheers.. aSa C[_]

Thank you very much aSa, that is what I wanted.  I am then able to assign the action to a button on the wheel.
You have removed the cause of MUCH frustration !  :hat-tip:
