  2. I apologize for my absence for the last few weeks, but this looks like a relatively calm week so I should be able to make this. Sign me up and let's have some fun at the Sachsenring :thumbsup:
     
  3. Sounds good to me :)

    As I said in the STCC thread, pure win. And I am so up for this too!

    It's actually a nice combo this two. There a few places you need to take it easy, but otherwise, it's pedal to the medal :)

    I'm still working on mine. Radicals are kinda friendly tho, so shouldn't be to hard to use the default ones. Just a few minor tweaks to breaks and gear ratio. Since I am noob when it comes setups, it takes some time for me to find me a stable one.

    Yes, gues you're right with what you say. But Sachsenring doesn't offer default sets:roflmao:
    I was looking for a better gearing:whistling:

    These cars - so. much. fun! :)

    Managed to get in some laps early, got to a pretty good pace and after battling some latency issues in practice sessions, I managed to qualify 2nd behind @Daniel Linder.

    The start into R1 went pretty smooth and the two of us held our positions. Lost a sec or two as I got off-track after that.. left-handed-eau-rouge-clone? ;)
    Daniel must've seen that as he chose to go off there in the next lap, as well ;) Now in P1, I could've slowed down a bit. However, I didn't, ignored the DNFs up till then and went into a post with 7-8mins to go. Fortunately, I didn't destroy the car completely and could carry on with less of a hood and more of crooked steering :/ Although I was now losing 8-12 secs a lap, I managed to bring it home :)

    Starting from behind in R2, I went on to P3 pretty quick, IIRC, as Daniel had a small off and I managed to pass him towards the end of L1. With @Dennis Phelan and @Andreas Scholz parking for a quick stop in town, I managed to get into P1 again, but this time, Daniel was right behind me and determined to get a few meters ahead ;) Had a nice battle with some position changes until he managed to break away and gain more and more time on me.
    Concentrated on not hitting a pole this time and finished 2nd.

    Good race everyone, thanks for organizing, Dennis :)

    Thx guys for an awesome race. Not much practice with this cars (however, I know the track pretty well) and after Q session, I were a little surprised I took Pole.

    1st race looked good, until the car decided to make my life a living hell.
    On the 2nd lap, I felt very confident, and started to push a little harder.
    Should not had done that, because at the 1st slowest part, I got a little side-ways and overfly the hay barrier and got stuck there. Took 10-15 seconds to get out and I were rdy to pull out. But these cars are extremely fun to drive and I just didn't had enough yet.
    After a while ppl started to drop out and I had 2nd position. Björn had a huge lead, up 45-50 seconds I think. But...

    Sometimes I cached Björn like he had stopped on the track, and were not far at all in the end. So I thought "okay, lets push" and manage to close the gap down to 8-10 seconds.
    But, I had to much faith in the car and made a mistakes and lost the time I had built up.
    Finished 2nd and 8 seconds after Björn.

    2nd race were pretty straight forward. Me and Björn switched positions a few times after the gigantic crash and the beginning. But after few laps, I called my Pit Babes and told them to lend a hand. And so they did, and when they saw Björn, they flashed their
    ( * ) ( * )

    And soon I had a comfortable lead and never worried that much. Were close a few times to spin around, but manage to save it and took the checkered flag!

    What a combo! Flat out 99.9% of the course and pure terror the last 0.1% :)

    I had a good car, developed with Dave K on Tuesday. It had plenty of top end speed and a scaredee cat behind the wheel :giggle:

    I blew my warmup lap for Q and then had an error on my first timed lap. Second timed lap was almost representative of the car. Bjorn and Daniel were certainly the charmers of Q :thumbsup:

    Race 1 was the first I got to see of the speed as I closed on Andreas. On lap 2 he had given me plenty of room when we were close and when we caught up Daniel I tried to give him the same but gave until it hurt and I ended up in a fence, game over. :( We almost had a nice fight there.

    Race 2 from the pole and Andreas there from a good start to run down again! I got that done but blew the corner coming out of town. I sat waiting for everyone to go past rather than block the whole road[ I only blocked 3/4 :D]. I sat there waiting for the last car to go by but it wouldn't, upon leaving I could see it was Andreas and guessed he was waiting for me, I didn't know we had contact. Sorry to have held you up for so long Andreas :inlove:.
    30 seconds down and holding that for a few laps, Andreas passes David K and then the gap diminishes :cautious: but on fire, I start pouring it on and making attempts to antagonize David on TS, each lap faster and faster, past a PB and faster still as the gap goes from '.........' down to " :geek:. Oh boy! still just behind at the third turn[ really only four ya know] I can and do close on the way down the last hill as David becomes indecisive about how to take the last turn I get inside and squeeeeze past. Sorry David :cry:, but YIPPEE!

    Ahh, so thats why you lost so much time. I thought first that you were slowing down so we could race together, but it didn't made any sense, because soon you were speeding up again, and then slowed down again. I was thinking "what is he doing" :laugh:

    With three seconds away from the front row in Q, I prepared for running smoothly and wait for the leaders to plan their picknick. But instead I couldn't resist the fun and tried to squeeze the last bits out of my car!
    Well, that had me see the trees in race 1 and I wrecked it in town in race 2. The long parts of flat out cost me my concentration in both races, when I had noone in front to fight with.

    Very nice, clean and intense racing everybody!

    Very nice combo, Dennis! And maybe come back here and go with the 230 hp car?
