    We encourage all of our drivers to use Teamspeak 3 (download). Talking directly to your fellow drivers increases the fun and the ability to share information quickly and easily. It will improve your driving skills dramatically as well as your relationship with your fellow drivers.

    When you have signed up for an event we expect you to be there. If for any reason you can not make it you can sign out up until one hour prior to the practice session. If you do not then you will be reported as a no-show.

    If the event uses a two race format then you are expected to be present for both races. If you leave during or after the first race without prior notice then you will be reported as a no-show.

    You can not sign up as a 'maybe'. We will not reserve grid places for people that might be there, we give them to people that will be there.

    When qualification starts and not all places are taken, reserves can then enter the server.

    Entry List:

  14. OK Boys and Girls, this is going to be quite a race. Just did some practice laps and MY GOD it's slippery. With not a ton of setup options on the Mini's let's team up and talk about setup's.

    It is more like a karmac rally race than anything else with this race, super fun, very nerve wrecking.

    All I can tell at this point is, put wets on, I'm running my brake pressure at 75% and moving more bias towards the back. Any other tips on how to make the cars handle better?

    This is going to be a FUN FUN race!
     
  15. Although I'm not going I did a serious setup a few days ago, and the end I did a 1:39.9.

    I don't understand how the car is sliding for you, for me it understeers horribly. I prefer the car to be very responsive on turn in, yet stable in the middle of the corner, so just adjust tire pressures and braking. After that look at your suspension.
     
  16. I'm lucky getting around 1:50's. You can't change the suspension on the Mini's. What kind of tire pressures you running?

    1:39.9?!? Sounds like a dry lap time... running the same 1:50's as Erik here on full fuel load.
     
  18. Sign me up please. Not done a mini round in ages, been concentrating on the RDTCC recently, but I love Adelaide too much to miss this!


    Edit: Just did a couple of laps with a basic set up and full tank and got into the 1:48s...I think even with an alien's pace and an empty tank getting below 1:40 is impossible, unless there's something I'm missing!

  20. Erik, for wet setup use default then make front toe -1.00 rear toe +0.80 front arb 40 rear arb 70 that did me good for a 1:48.6 last night, but was very scary on first chicane so I will be doing 1:50- 1:52 in race just to stay off the wall.
