Hi.

Creating or modifying an engine.ini, would I want to use the HP at the crank or at the wheels?

Does rFactor have variables that reduce the power as it travels through the drive train or should the engine.ini HP reflect the lost power?

Thank you.

Thank you! :cheers:

I've got more questions about rFactor but will look for tutorials first.

To be more detailed: Yes, there are things to reduce the output, but not a single variable you can punch in (like *.85 or, the 15% loss, assumed with most drive trains). I'm not sure of exactly how, but my reasonable suspicion is that it has to do with cumulative effects of the inertia values.
