Default racing in wet conditions

Hi there,

I have heard that some drivers run permanantely in 2nd gear when the track is wet. Does someone know how to do this?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Just block the 2nd gear by screw in the 2 middle screws setting the clutchshoes of the 2nd gear against the gear adapter.

Try to use the largest spurgear and the smalest pinion so the clutch and engine can handle the continious 2nd gear,
Speed is only fiction but a 130+km/h MRS4 is for real.

Thanks Roelof, your help is much apprecited. I will try that. During the last race I have seen some drivers running only the spurgear for 2nd. The gear for first was not even mounted During race prep there was no time to ask them about this and afterwards I have forgotten about it...
