I'm trying, I love it .  :clap2:
I will do a  german "championship" , no practices , 10 mn races with 9 AI and 1 or 2 other pilots .
Gyral, Machwerk, Hockenheim32, Nurbuering, Leipzig, Halle saale, Solitude, Schottenring and Sachsenring

suggestion to make easily  a more varied grid :
I took the modGT's  Ferrari folder  ,  put it in the mod stratos and  give ferraris to some  AI

Posted Image... This will allow me to keep waiting for the alpine ,  :P

PS : where can I find some Set up ?

Here is a list of what you need to get all files for the Stratos mod that have been released yet (I did this list for a GPLRACER Stratos fun race at Live For Speed Rallycross Track, see http://forum.gplrace...ic.php?id=1825 <- see also for an attached setup by Paul Skingley):

1) Lancia Stratos Mod:
http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=5624

2) Stratos Mod Sound Update:
http://srmz.net/inde...t=30#entry45299

3) Stratos Rocks Update (Online Compability/CTD/FTP Update):
http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=7943

-> unpack the brabham folder into:
H:\Games\SIERRA\Grand Prix Legends\cars\carsRX

-> unpack the drivRX.ini into your main Grand Prix Legends folder:
H:\Games\SIERRA\Grand Prix Legends


You have to use the green Chonograph Lancia car to make the Rock FTP/CTD update to work!

Paul Skingley was so kind to do an easy to drive setup for this track. Thx!

I guess I need some set-ups. Very bad push. all corners at 25 to 35mph or I go straight off the track. .  Not fun at all. but thanks for the mod.

From what friends have told me about the Stratos, the mod is actually quite accurate. It may seem that the car pushes all the time, but in fact the Stratos was quite rear-end-heavy, so the way to get it to turn is to get the tail to hang out.

I've lost contact with the Stratos Enthusiasts Club now, but they all used to say that the car was quite tail-end happy under hard throttle, and could get a bit squirrely under hard braking too. If you could get used to this and learn to control the instability, you could use it to point the nose in the right direction. That seems to be the technique that Sandro Munari (and others) used to use when they were winning rally championships with it.

(My friends in the club all had Stratos replicas, but although they were kit cars, the kits were closely based on the original Lancia part specifications, so they were quite close to the originals. The major difference was that Ferrari Dino engines were a bit expensive, so they switched in either a 2-litre Lancia or 2.5-litre Alfa v6 engine.)

It is a bit of a problem driving the car in GPL, as GPL is built for racing cars on normal road/track surfaces, not loose rally surfaces. But I managed to adapt my driving style and ended up having quite a bit of fun with the mod before going back to my normal hotlapping and TotalRanking.

Hope that helps.

I have GEM set up to use the "60fpsv2" patch with the Stratos mod. It was the first one in the list which I found to work in solo hotlapping mode, which I prefer. If you want to try racing against other cars, I suggest you try the "60fpsaiv1" patch, as that is supposed to handle the AI cars better. But I haven't tested if it works properly with the Stratos mod. Others may have more knowledge about that.
