    Here's a setup, still a WIP but nice and goes over the curbs well.
    I use 640 degrees in my steering wheel so change the steering lock to suit your driving.

    Decided to let everyone go because I like starting from the back. :whistling::whistling: ;) Had a wonderful race though, really enjoyed it.

    Race 2
    Because of my pressure, Bjorn crashed out under stress. :whistling::whistling::whistling::x3:
    I inherited 2nd position and try as I might I could not close up on Alex. And when I did I spun off. :notworthy::notworthy::geek:

    But I'll take the 2nd podium spot any day. 2 on the trot as I finished 2nd at Mugello in the Assetto Corsa club last night.

    Thanks all, really enjoyed it. :thumbsup:

    Really liking this track so far - did a few laps yesterday and had the basics taken care of already once I joined the server, though it still took me a while to get up to speed. Soon enough, Nelson joined in running times similar/slightly faster - once on Dennis' setup, Alex joined the fun and qualifying came along..
    Nelson seemed to have more speed, but giving it one more go and with quite some luck through some turns, I still managed to snatch pole position.

    Although my start seemed alright, Nelson got off the line incredibly fast and inevitably got by - I tried to hang on, but too no avail - soon enough, he vanished into dust and with the rest of the pack running behind myself at about a similar gap, it was a fairly relaxed drive home - P2.

    Had a slightly better start into race #2 and after some nice, close racing through the first two laps, I found myself chasing Alex and Andy in P1 and P2 respectively, all while being chased by Nelson. During the first sector of what I think was lap 3 or 4, Nelson first disappeared after hitting a curb and mere metres later, Andy got a bit unstable and I got by to begin the hunt for Mr. Odell ;)
    Once I had closed in on him, however, I took too big of a bite from the outside curb of the uphill-carousely-thingy and ran into the wall, argh! With suspension damage soon resulting in another spin, I then concentrated on keeping the car on the road (which didn't always work) to bring home a 4th place.

    Thanks for racing everyone, lovely track/car combo, see you tomorrow! :)

    (Also, my internet went out just minutes after the race disconnecting me from TS - just a single incident, though... hopefully :D)

    Well, this post was supposed to be the latest svm file for the car but it looks like I never sent it. In the end, my car was good, I was too cautious and everyone else used the car well.

    Pratice times it seems were deceiving with fastest for me not being representative. My race pace was nowhere near quickest.

    R1: Yup, the old dog excuse again. You may doubt I have a senior dog but she's here and does need extra care which I'm happy to give.

    R2: Maybe I needed traction control, I just couldn't keep up. :D

  13. I certainly would have liked TC and low stability. It would have been much better for me. But I'll keep fighting these unstable cars. ;):whistling:

    Was initially slow. Put Dennis' setup on and went 2 seconds quicker. Thanks Dennis!!

    Got a good start in race 1, but like the STCC race on tuesday, got boxed in and couldn't go anywhere with it. Settled into 4th place behind Dennis. overtook him and started to pull away but then my cat Wispa decided he'd like a cuddle and began crawling all over me, and Dennis took the place back. Wispa was soon bored of me and so wandered off, and I caught and re-passed Dennis again out of the penultimate corner. At the final corner he went wide and spun, leaving me on my own in 3rd for the rest of the race.

    Race 2 saw another good start and I got myself into 1st place. nelson soon caught up and we went side-by-side through the last and first corners and he moved ahead, I had a lunge into the inside of turn 2 and it stuck, Nelson went wide and lost a couple of places, then caught a curb a couple of laps later and fell out of contention hitting a wall. Now I had Bjorn on me, but he caught a curb and hit a wall, which left Andy to have a go. But he... caught a curb and hit a wall.

    So yeah, My first RD race win of the year. All thanks to people catching curbs and hitting walls. And also probably there only being 6 of us in the first place.

    It's not these cars that are nasty or unstable. The curbs at this track worked well with the TCC cars but created havoc with these little tubs, so it seems cats and dogs did too. We used the least powerful version of the SR4, you will love how they stick on a more open track, even with more power.

  16. I like them. These on Road America would be fun. ;) Or a nice tight and twisty open track.
