DSO lounge is set up. i've noticed a time setting glitch this week. Wednesday night in my lounge and tonight when I set up the DSO lounge, the track started out in broad daylight when set to 4:50. I had to reset the time, and then back to 4:50 resulting in a normal amount of darkness for that setting. Anyone else experience this ?

I got exactly that on my one lounge set-up.

Me three. At least computers get 5 reliably from 2+2.

I'm in for this tonight, after putting a very crazy kid to bed. In for some practice after dinner.

Thanks. Very Happy We Q'd at GP/F.

robiker died coming up out of Fuchschrohre [sp?] lap 1, collected both Rooster and I. I was second for a while after that, ran okay until I started to overheat lap 4 and progressively kill my car. It rained from lap 1 onwards, but surface water only got to 34% at the finish.

Interestin'.

Woulda been more interestin if I hadn't damaged three cars early-on.
I had more brake bias on the rear, which was ok after the tires warmed-up, but I wasn't careful enough before that.
I'll try to avoid driving like a 'tard in the future.

I had 3/6 with 10ABS, and had to be really careful for the first half-lap.

I kept my brakes at 5/2. What I lost through having to break earlier (since my car wouldn't turn in under brakes) I gained in reliability. This car turns best under power anyway.

Pole was key to avoiding the carnage on the first lap. Suddenly I saw headlights going left and right behind me. I didn't have to drive well from that point. I actually damaged it twice, and had to repair in the pits, but nothing like the time lost on the first laps to the other cars. Challenging combination, and I actually quite liked it, as a challenge anyway.
