Rac379, the PDF attached to the first post contains the very same text and pictures as the post itself (which *is* in html, being a web page...).
As for your question about the driver's position, this is not the right place where to discuss it, because it's not something that you can change by setting an option in SimPE. You have to locate the proper "slot" in the CRES, and modify its translation (i.e. the X/Y/Z coordinates). Probably there's some info about this in a tutorial for custom cars? Not sure... Not a beginner's task, anyway, but you can try.
I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.
