    Did about thirty laps tonight and feel fairly comfortable. Have no idea if I'm quick enough but I'll give this a go. Sign me up.

    Is the turn oversteer just caused by too late downchange on the gearbox.

    Can't decide whether to use second or third at the hairpins. Trying to to use second but it causes the car to kick its tail out. Seem to lose more time than taking it in a high gear.

    You definitely want to use 2nd gear there. I think you might even want to utilize the kick to turn the car.

    Yeah for sure 2nd feels better. I can see why a manual shifter is preferred though. I can't seem to get quite get through the gears fast enough and still keep the car stable with the paddles. Just requires more practise that's all. Fun car though.

    Watched a couple of handy vids I see one person is using 3rd for the first hairpin and 2nd for the other one. So I'll try that when I get home from work tonight.

    My worry is judging by his lap times, although I thought I was doing well last night I appear to be 8 seconds a lap slower than him! :O_o:

    From my experience, 3rd for the first and 2nd for the second hairpin is the right thing to do.
    I think for the first hairpin, you might not follow the rubber band on the ground at the entry, but instead use the outside/inside/outside usual technique
    For the second one, if you do not want to spin when downshifting, you have two solutions :
    - either you know how to heel and toe properly
    - or you release the clutch pedal slowly, and put an egg under your right foot when taking back the gas pedal
    Can't say i'm the best driver of these monday nights sessions, but these techniques worked well for me (gained 2 sec. that way)

    Thanks @Freddo Soprano thats useful to know. I really need to learn heel and toe more. I have tried in the past but can't quite get it to be an automatic routine. Thinking too much about it. Still learning the car at the moment so I'll keep trying. Nice circuit to drive these cars on though.

    Sign me up :)

    Hoping this time my router and my tinnitus won't be acting up, disconnecting from the first race and driving half-deaf in the second wasn't exactly a fun experience...

    It's part of the Japanese Car Pack released a few weeks back. Purchase via Steam as always. Sorry can't remember the price off the top of my head but it's not much.
