  1. Kk - fair enough!! There is also the issue of client hardware that is required. rFactor if I understand correctly only runs on PC, whereas Assetto Corsa also runs on game consoles, am I correct? If so, that may also be a big factor in how many people may ultimately be able to participate. Not many people are likely going to run out and buy a PC just so they can go sim-racing at GMP...
  2. It wasn't meant as a criticism Ian!! There are definite advantages to both platforms. As I understand it, using the rFactor platform may require operating our own server - which we don't have and likely won't be buying. Assetto Corsa, if it can be run simply by networking people's existing PC(s) or game consoles, will be a much better option, even if it doesn't offer the same degree of realism. I didn't mean to put my thumb on the scale, I just want to make sure people get the chance to consider all their options before we make a decision a) whether to proceed and b) if we do, which platform we'd select.
  3. Thanks Aaron. Much appreciated!! Someone else made a side by side comparison of the rFactor1 GMP track model next to the Assetto Corsa GMP track model, and I think the comparison is striking. In my opinion, one is like actually racing at GMP, and the other seems like an arcade version of racing at GMP. http://www.youtubemultiplier.com/5e874a85b0e7b-rfactor-assetto-corsa-side-by-side-comparison.php Before a decision is made on which platform people prefer, they should definitely watch this video if they haven't had a chance to actually drive both.
  4. Ian, can you do a screen capture with a test run of GMP on Assetto Corsa? JS has done a screen capture with rFactor that I'm going to try and load so people can see the two different systems and compare the ability to run at GMP on both systems.

  9. Hmmmm... I was trying to be humorous, apparently that didn't come across. But seriously - Darin understands these Audi's better than most.
  10. No doubt - your symptoms are identical to the ones I was having. A vacuum leak is definitely the most likely suspect - and the fix won't cost you much other than your time. Oh, and BTW - Darin is the one who solved the issues with my car, so he knows from whence he speaks. Ignore his advice at your peril!!
  11. I don't pretend to know as much as Darin or the other guys, but I know when Darin and I had a similar problem getting my TT to fire up one of the issues we encountered was a small gap between the intake manifold and block when the manifold got hung up on a bracket that prevented it from seating properly. seems like an unlikely problem to repeat itself, but the symptoms you're having are eerily familiar... might be worth your time to give it a quick check - everything looked good from on top - wasn't until we looked underneath we noticed the small gap. hope you guys get it sorted out! oh, and let me know who your AEM guy is, I think I'm going to ditch my OEM ECU and go aftermarket at some point - stock unit is a bitch to work around (huh Darin?!?)
