No rules on how swift/aggressively you fly in the race

Winners/Placing is determined by an overall finish time. Time begins when the racer enters the start/finish gate for the first time, and ends when they cross the start/finish gate for the last time. The less time, the higher you will place. Penalties will be added to the time if necessary which could lower placing so BE CAREFUL!

Do the gates have a required attitude to pass through them, like Redbull does it?
You'll also probably want to boost the aircraft strength to several hundred to avoid dying on pylon strikes.

I usually fly through them at 35-50 feet, but passing 250 feet is a disqualification this round since it's 2 flat laps. Reguarding the pylons, the planes on VNAF's server should already have nearly 999 strength. ;)

Attitude, not altitude. In Redbull, red gates require a knife edge pass, blue and start/finish require a horizontal pass.

Oh, read it wrong. We're changing it up a bit but the chicane definetely requires knife edge passes.

I wish to swap out the White Extra for the S2X "Super" Pitts. I'll provide a link for your approval

We wish to make the races as equal and fair to each other, including the same dat files. I am unsure if I'm confortable with this aircraft being in the races unless the dat file is similar to that of CEP's Extras. :)

I'm willing to make a separate dat file with the necessary changes to bring it in line. I'll have it ready ASAP.

Using the same dat file as the CEP extras would be ideal. With only one week to go, verifying differences in dats is not a priority.

I don't have time to join the race today anyway, but after installing those addons into a fresh copy of YSF from 2013, it crashes on startup every time, as well as having a lot of missing ground objects from TF58 and a missing plane from Major.

Actually, after getting rid of the palm tree and house from the pylon .lst, it works fine.
