    Ya , I got to think consistent low 29's are good lap times with a high 28 thrown in would be good .. Keeping the pace is the hard part.. I'll go back to Martinsville with Rob but Bristol is the baddest..

    I'll be driving back from out of town, so I'm 50/50, but hope to get back in time.

    #27 Peak/ Menard is questionable due to wheel failure immediately after the new XOne update.. No button functions and not recognized by computer when connected... I'm searching for solution.. Contacted Fanatec support but that could take a while.. Controller works fine but it's just not the same.. Bummer!!!!!

    I haven't even downloaded the new update yet. Have you tried a Hard Restart Bob?

    The update takes forever. You can now speak to your xbox with your mic, via Cortina, and you can broadcast your games with a button push via Beam. I'm still going to Twitch, since you can't upload to You Tube via Beam. But you can say "hey Cortina, open F1 2016" and it will. Big whoop. You can tell it to record clips too, so I guess if you don't twitch that's cool.

    I'm 100% now. I'm going to be slow as usual, though, since I'm concentrating on career and following the season. I'll try the Knee Pit setup for Texas.

    Ya Mike , I have tried everything I can think of. My laptop connected to the wheel property page says test failed , no connection detected and I am wondering if maybe it could be a firmware update... Fanatec drivers and firmware are a combo type deal.. I have a message in to tech but that could take a while and what I had worked so well I am leery about messing with it... I ain't no computer wiz so It takes a while for me to figure it out.. The wheel is not communicating with the X-Box either by a coincidental electronic failure or the driver /firmware issue that I suspect. I will keep you posted. I might try uninstalling the old driver and install a updated one but I get a bit nervous with that stuff.

    Well you can always do like I did and get you a backup wheel for just such occasions. You can get a Thrustmaster Spider at most GameStop's for less than $100. There's no FFB just a bungi cord for resistance and no electronics to fail. I had to use one for about a month while mine was being replaced/repaired

    Found the issue with my wheel at Martinsville. After watching my twitch feed, contact between me and the 78 around the 1:10 min mark. I wasn't able to even get over 120 mph on the straight-away. I think the FFB jolt to the wheel caused my wheel not to function properly. Then resetting the wheel I lost connection to the game. :(

    I've got a feeling that I'm gonna be a back marker this race. The car is very stable, but not that fast, I'm getting around 29.0xx to 29.1xx consistently. Just feels very slow, even with running up against the wall.

    What is everyone running?
