A bit less entertaining than Autumn Ring but still fun; just a lot of long straights (and turns) with full throttle.
Car seems a bit too weak, it can't hold the speed in 4th gear after turn 1. The question of the week will be 'Can turn 1 be done full throttle?' affraid

So far I have a 1'41.288

Trial Mountain Reverse has a spot like that too. There's some weird eccentricities on all these decade-old track designs.

won't be able to make it; Tuesday is my new soccer night as of lately. Very Happy

But I practiced by myself this morning and banked a q-time of 1'40.682 (29.894 - 35.982 - 34.806).

I'll be on about 7 PM eastern. If anyone is on before that go ahead and make my lounge up. Last week we had 6 or maybe 7 for practice, which was fun.

Banked a Q run of 1'40.451 before people showed up. 1'40.080 with some practice and 1/0 brakes (instead of 2/0). Good splits are about 29.7 35.8 34.6 (watched monitor for a bit).

I did some more practice this morning and got into the 1'40.2s; so I started one more q-attempt: 1'40.201 (29.783 - 35.762 - 34.656)

Who can get under 1'40? Question Not me, I reached my limit Very Happy

Couple practice races with Wall and Agent. No 1'39s but some 1'40.2s. First two laps on cold tires tough.

Finally got into the 140's (1:40.934). Gotta good tip from clacks about a downshift point that'll hopefully make it consistant. We ran a couple practice races and I was quite surprised how much draft we got. I also got a good visual of the point that you loose it lol. See ya tonight! Very Happy

Those practice races are more important than finding another 1/10th here or there. I might be up for a few surprises tonight pale

The AppEngine service seems to be running dirt slow right now for some reason. If you get an error when you're using the Q form, try a few more times to get it to work...

Edit: Looks like it's back to normal now.
