It says wonders about how fast Bellof and the P956 were 35 years ago...simply amazing that no one broke it before.

The Group C cars never went back there after the year the record was set. Which played a role in the records lifetime. Still one can see how on the edge Bellof was that day because he tried the same thing in the race and trashed the car.

I'm not saying at all that you would write patches to cheat so please don't misunderstand me.  Your interest about getting into patch madness is a good thing, you've been around GPL for long time now, and have earned a measure of trust already, but the best way to gain access to the roadmap is to work on a mod team doing other stuff for a while before being handed the secret keys to the city.  In the meantime, you could learn assembly language.  :)

Allright, I'll familiarize myself with assembly. In the mean time how does one join the mod team(s)?

I'm still here, apologies for the radio silence, had a busy week.

If you are doing all this with trial and error and little understanding it makes the things your patches do even more impressive. I never imagined it being easy, but that there was at least some documentation.

I'm under no delusion that learning this skill will be easy. Still I consider myself stubborn enough to get something rigged together. That is if you indulge me and my stupid questions that will surely come up.

Let's start with an easy one. Are you directly writing the xml files or is there some source code that gets fed into some sort of compiler?

Also what assembly language are we talking about here, there seem to be different varieties.

Let's call it lower mid level, mostly data analysis and a small amount of simple simulations in Matlab and Python. Wee amount of Javascript as well.
