    I like minis - but Comfort Soft? UMADBRO??

    I never race on CS. I hate the seasonals where they make us use that crap and avoid those too. :confused:

    Offline, CS on small cars are not too bad. Online it is terrible.

    We seem to get a LOT less grip in online races compared to the same car/tyre combo in a career mode race.

    No complaints about the minis themselves though. Been seriously considering getting Race 07 up and running again just for Mini Fridays - hehe - just love to race minis. :barefoot:

    It is due to the fact that in online we change the grip to "real" whereas while offline you probably run with loss of grip off the racing line set to "low". ;)
    During some tests with the Cusco Impreza in Ascari, my laps with "low" where 1:58.8 while with "real" were 2:00.0. It makes a huge difference!

    *sighs* Go on, put me down as a back marker. RD_Rabin

    If anybody laps me, I'm pulling their exhaust off as they go by :D

    I think we're racing Minis at GoM on Friday too - as I asked for them at Silverstone - but we may be tuning them and using RS boots there :p

    Are comfort softs the only comfort tyres you can use? Or can you use the mediums and hards as well?

    OOOOH Tomorrow morning race and no practice... sounds like the last 2 events I raced with you guys. Depending on race 2 and how long it takes I may have to bail on it. I've got an appointment at 11am and Qualy starts at 9am. So time dependent for me racing race 2. I'll definitely be there to keep Sakis on his toes for the first race :D Time for another good battle mate.

    Stewy I hope you are up there with us this time. We need a good 3 way fight for the win.
