    I'll give them a try, but expect to see me in the wall at some point :whistling:

    Is it wrong to prefer FWD racecars?

    Well, since I did vote for this car, I guess it's only fair that I should push pedals and turn wheels. Or something.

    And I want to make an Abu Double joke, but I can't think of one that would make sense.

    If you drove in our last IFM race at Mid Ohio Chicane, your setup for that track will work wonderfully at AbuDhabi. You might make 6th gear one click longer depending on how your setup is.

    If you don't have a setup for an IFM car the file below is my current setup and handles nicely for me.
    Possibly Bjorn will add his? for the more accomplished drivers?

    I think I'm still running a modified version of your Zolder setup from way back - will check pre-race tonight :)

    Well yeah, It was modified when we went to Rattlesnake Point and again for Istanbul before it went to Mid Ohio. Car setup is easy when you just keep tweaking the old horse :)
     
  7. Yes Please :thumbsup:

    Sorry guys, even with Dennis' setup file I can't drive these. I know you lot think they're slow, but I just find them twitchy with too much acceleration and a tendency to fly into walls.:sick:

    Spent some time on the RD server this afternoon and just couldn't put a good lap together even though I already know the track .Just not fun for me to drive.

    I'm out. Catch you all in the Minis on Friday! :thumbsup:

    I am on now if anyone wants a few laps.

    I can vouch for that.
    This is a set-up that even I can control, despite never having driven OW (or Abu Dhabi) before.
    Now, whether or not I'm breaking any speed-records.....
    I'm going to assume 'no'. :D

    Cheers,
    Lars

    Can confirm both the speed of Dennis' setup (wheee! fun, fun, fun - I even like the track, using this ;)) and the stability of Bob's one (would recommend adjusting steering lock, though - 19-20-ish?).
    Really pushing hard, I could even get about the same times using Bob's for the first half of the course, it's the latter part where I'm faster with Dennis' settings :)

    Golly, I have a fast car? :laugh:
    No excuses then I guess :(
    But, I thought it handled well :redface:

    No money, no team racing.

    I haven't decided if I should sign up yet.
    I'm not that huge fan of open wheelers, but this track with these cars is kinda fun :whistling:
    Also, the amount of sign-ups is kinda uninspiring :(

    No worse than this year's British F3 has been at times; only four drivers have done every race :D
