    Fellas I've just realised something.
    My work tomorrow may run on a bit late. I should be back in time but if I'm gonna miss R1 I will do my best to post to that effect on my cell phone. @Jarek Kostowski, could you please stand by to host R1 in my absence (just in case).
    Thanks in advance.

    If it's OK, I might drop in tonight to check connectivity / performance / TS etc.

    If I'm all over the place though, I won't wipe out people's races through incompetence.

    You're welcome, don't be put off though as Proto A1 is not a very beginner friendly class, next week will be way easier to start with.
    The 4 cylinder 904 is pretty tame with the right set though, i'll hook you up once online.

    If you need any help setting things up, just ask. It's strongly recommended for realism to set up the steering (profiler+in-game) like explained in the HistorX manual.

    Well, that was...informative :D

    Connectivity, PC performance, TS all worked fine. Driving and timekeeping...not so much.

    I arrived with about a minute to go in quali. leaving me no time to test and set up. In chat someone said to jump in a 904-6 as there's a good setup floating about, so I did. I then proceeded to proved that no plan survives the first encounter with reality, as while I saw a number next to my Received folder, it was reporting as empty. So I jumped in anyway, to do my very first yards in the car and track thinking "how bad can the default be?" :unsure:

    Our survey said: :poop:

    For race 2, I went back to the 904-4 and made some very basic changes in the limited time I had. Still not great, but a whole lot better (for me). By the end of the race, I was getting some sort of consistency, albeit slow, and I had a decent idea of what I'd change next.

    Had a very nice introductory chat with Denis & Jarek after the race, and also a nice catch-up with @Rupe Wilson between R1 & R2.

    Only an outside chance I'll be home in time to get there on Sunday (and test out my setup theories), but I'm looking forward to next week.

    Thanks Denis, Jarek & RD. :thumbsup:
