Slightly stronger car and longish tracks for the next two no-tune races. 3/0 brakes seems pretty good, it's still possible to lock the fronts in a couple places and the back end likes to come out if you're braking while turning at all but it's not as difficult as a couple recent combos. I ran a 3:12 to set the lap count, 3:20 or better and you should have company. I should be on Wednesday evening for more practice.

Please note the 3 lap PQ session due to the length of the course, different from the usual 5 lap sessions.

Up to 5 in my lounge practicing for this over the last couple nights. I've gone as fast as 3'10.2 with (3/0 brakes), now changed to 2/0 brake (for better front tire wear) and still can run under 3'11 if I keep it tidy. Was about 1/2 wear on the fronts at 12 laps with 3/0 brakes, couple seconds slower laps with the wear.

Did so after everyone else wandered off tonight, Q'd 3'10.9.

GTAuto services of oil change, engine refresh, chassis refresh, wheels and paint are fine. So is brake balance in settings, do anything else to the car and you won't get in the race room.

Cool

I feel like I might have one of the broken in already from some event past, but I'm here at work for another 40 minutes.

I'd feel a lot better if I had one ready to go in my inbox when I got home, can anyone (clacksman) make that happen?

Nope. You don't start the room until the drivers meeting is over.

Start a chat first as a head count so that we don't have unfilled slots if someone doesn't show.

Didn't live-Q on pole, but won the race. Good times almost not hanging on to Rack in the middle.

Well I did well in practice and the Q but it all went out the window early on. Just bumped the wall and picked up left rear damage which I couldn't seem to control and bumped another wall and got right front damage and then into the pits I go. Don't know how you guys can maintain that speed past that long right sweep, but I didn't get the braking right....twice.

Anyway, watched the replay and looks like everyone had a good run. Rack and ori0n both had damage as well, but did well in spite of it. Don't have a clue how Rack stayed with clacksman with damage but he did and led for a good part (most of it I think) of the race. Clacksman's tire wear was pretty close to dead even front to back until he made his push in lap 10. Then the fronts started to lose a bit more.

Good race guys and nice to see a new face out there with us. And thanks for letting me get my feet wet hosting,

Wall

I don't think replays can be trusted for damage or tire wear - mine from this race shows Rack with damage and doesn't show orion with the damage he admitted to in the postrace chat.
