I miss my team FTW Sad

I won't get back home before Thursday night and can only prequalify during work/lunch break on Friday. Can anyone share a car recommendation and tune? No rush, I won't need it before Friday morning.

Thanks in advance, as always any help is highly appreciated.

I also miss some emoticons

We're pretty well all here. Laughing

Haven't tried cars here beyond setting up the lap count, and the leftover tunes on the couple cars I tried were still good other than maybe a final drive change.

Also protip: set the room to 305hp, if you can get in that your hp is legal even if it shows more than 305 in your garage or settings screen. pp and kg shows correctly compared to room settings so as long as you have at least 1250kg and less than 467pp showing the car is good. If it's still breaking in double check it for hp and pp before the race.

If (big if), I run it will be under a similar amount of prep to you VK, nominally nominating the 2012 GT86 for it's novelty. Will share my guess-tune if/when I get in it.

Tuesday Night Track Walk

Post  Wallhugger60 on Mon Jan 09, 2012 8:45 pm

I will be opening a lounge on Tuesday night at 8 pm est for a track walk for the Friday race. This is something we used to do with Team FTW on a weekly basis to get a run thru of the proper line including braking points, turning points and so on for the weekly race. It was actually started for the enduros and kinda caught on from there. Clacksman has made himself available for at least the time being to take anyone who's interested on a slow speed "Walk Around". We use Fridays race car. Questions are more than welcome and so are comments from your own experience. Personally I have found it to be a very useful tool. So everyone is invited and hope to see ya then.

I'll likely be in there a bit before 8 to remind myself how to get around GVE in these cars. Very Happy

Nope Smile I ran some sets in my lounge instead, trying to dial in the 86 GT. I think you guys ran the thing a few weeks ago? But, I hadn't ever got in it. I don't really care if it is or isn't the fastest car, but hopefully I won't be lonely. Fun trying to keep the rear end in check. Here's my tune:

After testing last night, I suspect the 86 is the quickest car. Drives wacky but once you get used to it it puts up good lap times.

For better or worse, I'm going to try and run the Solstice.

Mainly because it dominates the C Stock class nationally every year autocrossing (which is the same class the RX-8 is in)

I may get to try it out tonight. If not, it will be a rushed tune/Q session after work tomorrow.

I worked on the S2k for a while, and stuck what I came up with in GTdata.

edit: 86 too, although it drives less well.

with a little practice and coaching I got into the 1'10s. Q submitted with incorrect car because the 86 GT '12 didn't show up in the drop down list.
so my official q is 1'10.658 with a Toyota 86 GT '12

Thanks coach! Very Happy
