    Me either :O_o: I know this car has a lot of understeer so a setup would help, but I won't have time to try to make one before the race tonight:(

    @Ryan Ogurek If this helps, this is what I have. Quick and dirty and not meant for a hotlap but it is a bit better for me. You might already have something better!!

    That was fun guys! ahah
    Not much of a race out front, but it was enjoyable just trying to conserve the softs for 20 laps. Still can't believe they didn't drop off as much.

    GT3 though will be hectic.

    Here's the Saleem vs Keith incident on the opening lap:

    sorry Saleem!:( obviously cut across into you. Rookie mistake because I typically cut to the inside on that corner and just didn't think about it being the start and you being just behind me. didn't see you but I will be more careful in the future to keep in my lane on the first few corners.

    No worries Keith. We're here top learn. Are you using a single monitor? I was only able to see you because of my triples. Maybe we should have people try out the spotter app.

    I use triple monitors but was probably too focused on getting through the first corner and really wasn't looking. I also was pretty far forward in the cockpit so that may have blocked my view. I could just barely see the left mirror and you were probably out of view. I will do a quick video tomorrow from my view to see what it looks like. Haven't had time to look at anything since the race.
