  5. I realize it's the last minute, but I'm curious to try this mod out some more. Count me in. :)
  6. Not really last minute race is tommorow :p
  7. Hehe yeah, I figured that out eventually... My mistake. x3 Looking forward to the race though, as I'm quite liking these cars so far. :)

    only 4 of us on track but 2 fun races

    Thanks Lee and RD for event

    PS.nice battle in race 1 Brian is hard pass me :D
  13. Well despite only 4 cars turning up, we had some great racing tonight.

    R1: got pole with a 1.17.5, bit slower then my PB of the night of a 1.16.8.
    Got a great start and lead out of the first turn, had Marcus and brian chasing me for most of the race until they had both fallen away by the 5 mins to go mark. From there I was able to cruise home and took my first win on Race Department

    R2: Didn't go out in Qually, due to winning R1

    Got another great start of of P3 and again was 1st out of T1, once again I had Marcus and Brian right on my tail, this time Marcus was able to get by with a good move into T1, whle trying to regain the place I pushed a bit too hard and cooked the rear tires, which lead to a spin or two, in the end came home 4th and last. From one extreme to the other.....

    It's a great mod for online racing, the cars are quite easy to get into, and are great fun to drive, Be even better if we can get more people to join in
  14. I disagree that the cars are easy to get into. I think someone who's inexperienced may have trouble keeping the tires at a good operating temperature, but I'm confident RD's got lots of people who are able. It makes for some extremely technical driving during sprint races like this, and anyone who isn't present is missing out on something great. :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed both races. And funnily enough, in R1, I fell back when I overcooked my tires chasing David. Funny how these things happen. :p Ah well, thanks for some great races! :)
  15. Lots of fun for sure :)

    I watched the replay of that first race, and it seems that I nudged you on that last overtake Valerio, so the last podium spot really should be yours there. Sorry about that! Great defending though; every time I thought I saw a hole opening up, you were on it.

    This track is really tough on the tires, and pushing hard will turn them into hot goo very quickly as we discovered.
  16. That's true, although what I found more terrifying was some curbs in sector 1 which can easily send you up onto 2 wheels, and bumps in sector 3 which send you airborne. That was certainly a laugh. :)
  17. I think the tire troubles are more down to the track then the cars, I did a 50 mins race at silverstone a few weeks ago using a joypad and the Aston with only 1 hour driving the mod before race start, tires held out just fine and though I was a bit of the pace, I found the car really fogiving and enjoyable to drive after some very minor setup tweaks
