The choice is yours. There are two versions of the mod (they wont mismatch) in Hi-Res (2048 resolution) and Lo-Res (50% reduction in textures). Both are available in EXE (self install) and RAR (manual install) formats.

If you have a high end PC and GPU, by all means use the hi-res links. If you are on an older PC and GPU or just want that extra bit of performance at the cost of a little texture quality, go for the 1024. If there is demand, a 512 resolution set could also be created for those with EXTREMELY low end GPU's


All of the features and improvements from the IndyCar Series 2009 mod ported over to 2008 mod.

The Panoz chassis is also compatible with this mod? Because i´ve tried several times to put the #88 Car(Phil Giebler-Indy 500 DNQ) from the rOWR07(Indy Version) and didn´t work for me.

Having not used the 2008 Indy mod in some time. I was very surprised when selecting road configuration, the car would veer left on a straight, (no matter which track) then under braking, the car would suddenly veer to the right. After trying many different setups nothing had any effect. I read the comment by "scca1981" regarding tire behavior, So I threw the dice, and tried copying and pasting the firehawk_road.tbc file, from the 2009 mod. As a result the veering issues are gone.
