    Due to the last vote being a draw between the 2 choices, heres your chance to finalise the choice so we can all get practising.

    1 vote each, winner on friday.

    (lets hope its not another draw)

    :)

  13. So sad its Zandvoort. It is way to bumpy for me and may be the only race I could miss by choice. I have done 25 outlaps up to now but crashed in sector 2 every lap after. I will continue to practice, but it is already more hard work than enjoyment.

    try my setup bob, i done the same every lap, it was ride height made the diffrence, no more spins :)
     
  15. Thanks David, I tried your set up and it was no help at all, until I stopped treating it like a tin top and stopped lifting over the bumps. Full on works best and now I only crash 50% of the time. My heart sank when I came home today to see what track it was, but I feel with another week of practice I could finish the race.

    Thats good to hear Bob :thumbsup:

    I must admit Zandvoort is a lot different than what Presto would usually use, for me its saving grace is that its a former F1 track, the layout is decent and its made by simbin, on the negatives its track width and bumps aren't great but I said before that if anyone can make it work at Zandvoort its us and I stand by that.

    This is my fault anyhoo, I gave everyone the choice of tracks to add to the vote when most likely the better solution would've been to use one that we've used plenty times in the past i.e Imola or Nurburgring, but we are here now and after 12 seasons we go to a new venue, can't be that bad, can it? :whistling:

    :)

    Agreed, we should all blame Nelson.

    Why would you do this Nelson? :O_o:
