    The DNF Series S3 - Howston Dissenter 1974 Challenge
    Welcome to season 3 of the DNF Series.

    The DNF Series was basically created for 2 kinds of drivers:
    1. For drivers who are skilled and want to take it to the limit.
    2. For drivers who want to take the next step in learning more about car control and improve their skill set.

    The guest of honour for season 3 is the Howston Dissenter 1974, a stock car made by Studio 397, also know as the Howston Dissenter 300.
    In season 2 we drove the F1 Mclaren M23 from 1975, which was aided by front and rear wings and the car had relatively a lot of grip. In season 3 we go back to the core of racing with a 1974 stock car. There are no aids on this car. No Traction control, no boost, no spoilers. All you have is an engine, steering wheel and pedals and 4 tires.
    It all comes down to mechanical grip and how you handle it. There is only 1 determinating factor with this car that makes all the difference: The Driver! And it's a beast. At Monza 10K, I clocked 300 km/h while slipstreaming a car in front at the end of the main straight.

    So buckle up and enjoy the ride!

    Howston Dissenter 1974 - Baseline setup
    (you can tweak it for each track of course, but this should give you a starting point as being fast and stable)



    Skin pack

    You are free to design and use your own car skin.


    How does each race start?
    All races will have a standing start.
    There is no formation lap


    If a driver does not show up for a race without unregistering for that event or letting me know that he can't make it in the event-forum, he will be taken out of the complete series.

    (You don't have to unregister for the whole series. You can unregister only for the race you can't do.)


    No Esc. on track rule in Qualification
    In qualification, you can not press Escape (Esc.) while on track (if you crash) and then go back out again.
    If you want to do another run, you have to come into the pits first.

    This is to protect the other drivers from someone taking abnormal risks to set a good lap time and crashing (other cars).


    Teamspeak is one of the features of Sim Racing Online.
    If you would like to hook up with other drivers on Teamspeak before the race (or any time), here is the forum link for the SRO Teamspeak address and password:

    For who are not familiar with Teamspeak, you need to add the Sim Racing Online channel to your "bookmarks".

    If we get 15 or more signups, I will try to get this series broadcasted as well.

    There are not so many subscribers for this series, so I brought the duration back from 60 to 45 minutes per event.
