    Moderators choice :D
    Every once in a while I like to run a single car or one car against another.

    Got tomorrow's Seat to a (hopefully) reasonable pace rather fast and gave this one a try offline - oh my, what a combo! Great fun!

    I'm in :D

    I'm not a fan of using just one brand of car, and my mistress, the Vette don't like when I cheat on her.
    But if you promise not to say anything to her, I'm up for this!

    Seems like your Audi is not gonna make it. Tell your mechanics to hurry!

    No worries, it's gonna be a surprise attendance using an alter ego or something ;)

    BTW - that might be just me being weird with gears, but doing a few laps yesterday, I found limitting the gearbox to a 5-speed worked pretty well for me - 5th gear at 26/39, IIRC, or pretty much just the SimBin default setup from Nords ;)

    Yeah, I took the car out for a couple of laps last night, and I'm gonna stick with six gears. I'm more concerned when it comes to turning. With those high speeds, I felt the turning ratio wasn't that great. Might just been me thou. Sometimes you're in groove and sometimes not.

    Daniel, do you mean you didn't have enough steering lock? Or you couldn't find a gear to run thru the corners at?

    It's the steering lock I think. I'm gonna have to play around a little more with it. It's kinda hard to explain, but it's something to do with the feeling of the car. When I did a few runs with the Vette, I didn't had the issue. But as soon as I tried the Audi, it was like, the car really wanted to turn, but were unable to.

    Maybe it's so simple, it's just a weakness of the Audi itself? And perhaps it requires another approach to corners. Something I discovered were the case with the Honda during the Tuesday race.

    This mid-engine car should be very willing to turn in. Maybe it is in your setup. Give the rollbars a try and after it play more on the no-power-diff.

    Very high negative camber at the front and a soft setup worked for me, also, try to stay on that different patch of asphalt in the corners, the track is flat on the grey areas but there's a lot of camber on that white line.

    Yeah, I did fiddle around with the same stuff, and now the car works okay-ish.

    Worst combo ever for me. It didn't start out well either, when I entered the server, just to discover it was not the track I have been practicing in offline mode. That's my bad ofc, but I was 100% sure it would be the same track that we raced on Tuesday. So when I entered the server today, I was like :O_o::cautious:

    I'm glad I entered 30 minutes before P2, so I had the chance to learn it thou.
    But absolutely hate the R8. I just couldn't get it to work. I tried everything, but it was like the car didn't respond to anything. I tried both positive and negative camber. I tried to have very low/high rebound. I also tried to have to high/low casters. And high/low Anti-Roll Bar, and mind you, I tried every combo I could think off, but nothing worked. Even in the warm up session, I still fiddle around with the setup.

    So when the race started, I was angry... No wait, pissed is better word for it :laugh:
    I knew my car were weak, and I knew I would struggle alot. Which I did.
    I considered just to floor it, and crash into a wall, so I didn't had to race.
    So when I finally spun in R2, I had enough. Because I didn't have fun.
    Ofc, thats all on me, but I guess it was just one of those days, when nothing works.

    I´m like you Daniel tried different setup also but finally went back to default setup work pretty well actually Qual. 3rd R1 3rd but I don´t know what happend when the 2nd race started it said waiting for 8 more to join the grid and then you guys took off but my car just stood there I couldn´t do anything, after maybe 10 sec it went off. anyway it was nice to race in Race07 club again so thank you all for a nice evening see you again tomorrow maybe.
