Yes, we've had contributors find many books, both rare and available, that were used to cross-check data.  These are just a few scans that were collected.

Also, here's a scan of one of the '55 races from a period Motorsport magazine.

Greg, seems like you're missing some pretty important data on the FWA engines there, along with power curves.
If you do need some help, don't hesitate to PM me :)

That is just some of the stuff that was used during development of the 55Mod .... as an example.

Sorry, got it wrong then. My fault ^^;

Nonetheless, if you want to check, I'm always ready :)

If you guys ever need something please don't refrain from posting. My own F1/sports cars library is small but I have some nice rare gems here, and I'm sure that counts for many of us in the forum :)

I do not know if this is the right place to post this, if not, sorry ...
It seems like I'm specializing in weird problems ... On MOD 55, on any track, with any car, whether in training or racing, suddenly the brakes stop working. It is not brake fading, it is as if the brake pedal "died". In all other MODs everything works normally, this only happens in MOD 55 (I have other simulators installed, and everything works fine).
I've already uninstalled and reinstalled the MOD, and the problem persists.
Has anyone else ever had this "problem"?

There is a green circle on the dash of each car, when it's green you got 100% braking power, when it's yellow 50% and 25%(?) if it's red. Red is feels very much like no brakes if you are trying to slow down. Now the indicator shows the brake temps, and they'll go down if you are driving and are left alone for a while.

This is how the brakes should work, "red circle no brakes". Now if there is no red circle and no brakes you have found a bug. Keep in mind brakes stay warm if you are doing a shift-r, but not if you exit to the pits or go into another session. Can you confirm that the no brakes state doesn't occur together with the red circle?

Thanks a lot for the tip, Michkov, I didn't know it. Tomorrow I will observe it.

Edit: That's right, I tested and it's OK. Thanks again for the information, I didn't know it before. And it is a bit easy for me, I'm used to downshift a lot to help braking, but I tried something different with this MOD - obviously I was wrong...

I have it that sometimes when I exit the car with red brakes, and I may edit some stuff or go from qualifying to race, I get back in the car, the brake fade is still red.

Shouldn't it go green?

Hi Yannick, I believe the behaviour you experienced is related to another GPL bug found by Bob: However, the issue is more severe in combination with the 55 mod due to the brake fade patch.

Lee, could you have a look at this?
Besides dangerous, it does not make sense that the brake light indicator is red (with all its consequences) when you start a race :shock:
