Ok drivers, here is UDSRA’s ASCS the Simulation 1.1 Reloaded! We have tested this very thoroughly and everything is working in top notch order. Before you download this TURN ANY ANTI VIRUS SOFTWARE OFF or you will chance getting a “invalid data” error after downloading. That seems to be the only issue people are getting and turning that off seems to fix it. Servers are not up yet and we will prolly have a new tdf for Tulare out in a couple days, along with a new track pack that fixes issues with the old one, and we will hold our Trophy Cup race this Sunday-Tuesday.
Last but not least here is the link to the mod…enjoy!
(Click the picture to download the new mod)
Today marks the NEW revolution of Sprint Car racing on rFactor with the release of the brand new ASCS 360′s powered by DirtDogGear.com! There is a TON of anticipation for this new mod, and the team at UDSRA has worked hard to bring you the most realistic Sprint Car racing anywhere in the online racing community. The ASCS 360 mod features brand new physics, brand new models and for the first time, tire wear. This mod also features a 305 option, AND a wingless option opening up the door for several new series here at UDSRA! Drivers will have to now better manage their races to not burn off their tires before the end of the Feature.
There is a Practice TrackPack available on the downloads page featuring every track on the 2013/14 National schedule. These tracks are just “practice tracks” to let everyone get acclimated to the new physics and learn the new tire wear. Each week, UDSRA will be sending out new TDF’s for each track prior to that particular race. This will allow for Drivers to get some track time to work on set-ups for that weeks event.
The Admins at UDSRA have put our heart and souls into this mod, and we hope that each and every competitor enjoys this new mod to the fullest! Most if not all of the UDSRA Admin’s will be onhand tonight in Teamspeak (i.p. address is 22.214.171.124) and in the servers to help anyone out who may have issues downloading or installing the new mod. There will also be people helping with base set-ups for the newer competitors to UDSRA. We thank you for your patience, we appreciate your anticipation and we wish you ALL the best of luck in the 2013/14 season.
note – UDSRA has chosen to patch the mod based on finding a few minor issues (nothing that affects gameplay). This will also allow for people who missed the skinpack deadline to get their skins into this mod. Please take note that when we give this deadline for the skin submission, this will be a FINAL deadline and no exceptions will be made.
We are at T minus 2 more days until the official release of the new ASCS 360 mod for rFactor! The mod and practice tracks will be available for download on this website as well as the UDSRA Facebook page. The tracks will only be practice tracks, with new TDF’s being release prior to that particular race weeks race to ensure fairness to all competitors. There will be a minimum of two servers up at any given time for drivers to become acclimated to the new physics.
