    Please remember, the focus of club events here at RD is FUN. It's not all about winning, so don't feel you have to go with the fastest available car for each race. There are plenty of great cars in this class, so let's mix it up a little and drive something that may not be an obvious first choice. Please do your best to join us on TeamSpeak and help to build a little community spirit!

    Well, the Elan & Alpine are usually quicker, but I know what you mean. I'll join you in the Jag then? ;)

    Ive been having a go in those thinking they were slower due to their handling quirks.

    Hi @Denis Betty,
    Sign me UP, please.
    And a question. Can I join TS but without mic? I can't talk because the races are a little late here and my family is usualy going to sleep approx at that time.
    Thank you!

    Yes, please join us on TS. One reason for being on TS is that we can tell others about any accidents etc. Sometimes, one driver may tell another guy not to wait - if he feels that he lost control of his own car or something. Also, you can type any reply (in game or on TS) but not in qualli/race sessions (RD rules). The aim is, that you kinda get to know the guys you race with a little better. Hopefully, we all become a group of buddies and look forward to meeting up. :)

    They may be slower for us mere mortals, but I'm pretty sure that they normally produce the quickest times. The Elan is a bit willful under braking, unless you run with max coast setting on the diff. I posted a set in the HistorX setups thread and Yves has posted one also.

    Tonight I read a chat from @Allan Ramsbottom that asked about to start from the back for the first four of the first heat.
    I was thinking more or less the same thing: why not to run heat 1 with normal quali and heat two with a reverse grid based on heat 1 results?
    As you said, it is just for fun...

    Race 1. Mid-Ohio is awesome.

    Edit: I'll take my freshly-painted Alpine too, handling quirks and all! (Thanks Thommo!)

    I think i'm correct in saying, that most of the guys who quallify in the middle or back of the grid, wouldn't vote for that. A few of the guys have told me, that as the quicker guys are passing them, it can sometimes upset their rhythm a bit. I could be wrong, if you guys wanna vote on it, we can start a thread with an open vote?

    Errrr...:unsure:...no you won't, mate. The Alpine I painted is the 1100, ie GTTC A0 class... I haven't done the 1600's (A1) yet.

    Sorry to piss on your chips Rossco. :(
