    Qazuhb, you can enter the car setup screen when you are in non-championship race or championship season mode, during free practice, qualifying or pre-race practice, if you are in pits. You have to press "z" and the car setup menu will open.
    This is one of my three favourite games, and the best race simulation game. I used to play it a lot during my adolescence. I'm from Argentina.

    Help! How do I enter the car setup screen to change wing levels, gear rates etc? I played the game a lot in the '90s but just can't remember this!

    Start the game by executing 'go.bat'.
    'A' is throttle, 'Z' is brake ',' is left and '.' is right. My favourite game when I was young! I played it toooo much :D.
    Gear up / down via Alt and space bar. 'P' is pause.

    Via the Fx-keys you can enable automatic or manual gears and more settings.. (F1 til F6).

    Thanks a lot - weirdly, the first time I played it I needed to refer to the manual, but since then you're right, I can just type anything. It always asks for the same word, so if anyone else has that problem, try typing "require" Great download, thanks guys!

    Hello Paul, just type anything and press enter at the protection screen and you will get past it.
