Thanks again for all the ideas and encouragement...

Good to hear it! Smile Yeah, 2nd can get unstable and delay you getting on the power in a couple of corners. I had the opposite problem, I suspect that in the TVR I was waiting too long to shift, getting to close to the redline where there was just no more torque to turn the wheels.

I hope you didn't feel like I brake checked you too bad going in to Chicane 2 that lap when we went side by side round Curva Grande (Big Curve. Brilliant!). After my first incident there, it took me a couple laps to get the feel for my TVR in the braking zones under racing conditions. Admittedly it was a mistake to tune moments before a live race.

I had images of this year's F1 race at Monza, though I think we were both far more polite! Wink

Nice. There's the benefit of manual shifting, now that you see how to use it to improve your lap times. Smile
