GTC- Like the rolling starts, but wish they'd kept it at 30 min races.

Don't own one but I figure the Mc should be better suited to run with the DP's.

*Eyes Interlagos* Dammit, I already spent my $4 iR dollars *Eyes credit card* Laughing Tom ought to be happy, he was just talking about Pocono the other night alien

There's some serious unrest in the iRacing forums over this new schedule and it looks as if the staff is trying to do some damage control. There will likely be some changes to some parts of the schedule, especially to the race lengths in the oval series' and possibly to the GT Challenge, and Proto/GT series. The Star Mazda races got cut from 40 to 20 mins and they do not like it.

Good, glad they're listening. Haven't read anything over there, but I don't see much logic to the shortened races.

Revised Schedule. Proto/GT is now open setup, longer races and rolling starts.

NasTrucks got longer races too.

GTCup (VW, Pontiac, Mazda) gets 25 min races now. Was 30 last season, was going to be 20 with first version of sched. Will still get rolling starts, which is new.

Mustang back to rolling starts as it was last season.

We are aware of the multi-class drafting complaints and are working on adjusting how the 0X and 2X contacts affect qualifying laps. Nothing will be done in time for the season rollover tonight (and the start of qualifying for this event) however. Because something could possibly change after qualifying starts we have decided to change the qualifying session to be single car qualifiers. This obviously eliminates any potential drafting – same class or different class – so it is not the perfect solution but we think it is the best solution for now.



People were pairing up to q and even bump drafting slower class cars to better q times for the Roar, so they're preventing that from happening in quali for the 2.4

Hi iRacing Members,

We all like to win, right? Who doesn't?! How'd you like to win a DSD Track Boss? Winning one can't be easier than what's planned for S1-2013!

Here's what you have to do - go to the iRacing Paint Shop and put the DSD Logo on your car. You'll find my logo in the list of Secondary Sponsors. Once you've done that, run that car in an Official Race and your name will go into the mix to be drawn at random to win one of 12 DSD Track Boss button boxes. One will be given per week throughout the entire S1-2013 Season.

This Official Promotion is open to all iRacing members, for any car and any Official Race. Each week's winner will be announced here to this post every Tuesday of the Season. (The DSD Logo will be in the Paint Shop starting no later than January 29th)

Interesting thing just occurred when I signed on to iRacing. Got a notice I earned $4 for racing a full season of GTC. What's odd is I recently made a purchase near the end of last season and had already spent that credit (even shows in my order history). Current credit area confirms they wanna give me another $4.

Got home early today cheers Fired up the laptop and got the update. My question (since iR forum isn't responding) is do any of you notice the brakes dragging? Or did the brake squeak part of the update just alert me to a new problem with my rig?

to be honest I couldn't feel or hear a lot of difference at all. But maybe I'm just too busy keeping that Skippy on the road. Neutral

I took it to Jefferson Reverse in preparation for the first week of the new season. After two 30 minute sessions my pace is almost 2s off the top and 1s off the top 100. I'll always be slower than the top; but 2s on such a short track is a lot Embarassed

Gotta keep practicing and especially focus on keeping that thing on the track. My iRating will get a hit the next few weeks anyway and I can live with that; but I would like to keep my good standing in the safety rating. Very Happy

Right now it's more frustrating than fun, but I'll stick with it. The beginnings in the SRF were tough too. What a Face

Nap-time outages are very unfortunate.

Spec Racer Ford is... interesting. I knew from you guys what to expect, so there was no swearing, but that little thing takes some driving. Seems like it should be rewarding though.

tricky at the beginning Twisted Evil , but very rewarding. I believe it rewarded me the title of 'Club Presidient' of NJ. bounce I didn't get the reward yet but it looks like there are no club points to be earned in week 13.

Anyway, I had a blast with it all season long Very Happy

I honestly don't know. I always used the setups of jonathon Hall who posted them on the SRF forum. I can upload all of them here if you want. But not before tomorrow evening; going to bed now and skiing tomorrow morning.

Another guy who has good setups and also puts up weekly track walk vids of the tracks we're running is John Bodin. His are normally minimal from base and the vids can really help. And though I haven't used any of Hall's tunes an FYI here is the fast guys run (really) loose from what I've seen which can be tricky when yer learning the car. But if you're used to that you'll prolly be fine then. Loose for me means my front end is always facing where I just was lol. I know I'll have to get more better driving that way, but it's slow goin on my end. I know I'm a lot better and even though I whine a lot about that car, I've made a lot of progress driving it.
