    I know, a stark contrast to last week's event, but don't underestimate these little cars, they are loads of fun in a tight, twisty track.

    I love Hock short, and while the Mini was waaay faster at Mo I Rana, and I know that these are 2 single make races, I'd expect the times to be a lot closer at Hock.

    The Mini still has that understeer to overcome, the Fiat is pretty nimble, and Hock's got some really tight turns.

    I made some laps with Abarth and i'ts fast as Alfa GTA! That Mini is faster? Incredible. I'll check it tomorrow, maybe.

    I must be driving it wrong lol. First corner with the default setup I got probably the biggest slide I've ever done and recovered, almost pointing face on to the pit entry :p

    Tim, try my latest setup for the 1310 Mini here (you may need to adjust the gearing for the track):
    http://www.racedepartment.com/gt-legends-setups/21121-gtc65-mini-1310-setups.html

    The 1310 Mini should be faster than the Fiat, but it does take some getting used to, and you need to drive it differently. It is FWD and will understeer if you don't use the power of the front wheels to "pull" it through the turns. It will stick to the road like glue though if you get it right. Try this:
    Don't brake too hard entering the turn, keep it stable by keeping a small amount of throttle on, turn it in to the turn, then use as much power as you can to exit the turn, you need to judge when you can get on full power but try to get it full as early as possible. I use a bit of left foot braking (Rally Style) to help the turn in, but that can take a lot of practice to avoid the big spins.

    I'd love to, but at the moment I'm on holidays in the Aussie Outback, just keeping up to date via my laptop. I wouldn't miss a chance to drive my little Mini's if I had the choice. :)

    I'm either very slow in the 1310 or very fast in the Fiat. I am almost 2 full seconds faster in the Fiat.
    But it's no secret that FWD and I don't get along all too well lol. So there is a HUGE chance I'm just driving the Mini too damn slow.

  18. Carlos, I don't know what time you have with Fiat, but your remark me suspicious. :rolleyes:
    Then I just can't ride on RWD! Since my time in Fiat is almost 2.5 seconds SLOWER compared with Mini. :eek:
    In general, the Mini 1310 - a mad flea, as I on it faster then Cortina (which I know much better then Fiat) on the 3 seconds!
