    Is it wrong to prefer FWD racecars?

    Maybe. Need to find out if I can actually drive these things first :)

    Those are fuuuuuuun :)

    EDIT: Current setup in case anyone's interested. (It may sound/look like putting sixth gear a bit larger might be a great idea, but it doesn't make that much of a difference in my experience :))

    Also, I apparently got rusty, posted the skinpack link too early - feel free to submit Rad skins (no pun intended), of course :)


    If you want to see how other RD members have designed their cars, feel free to download & install the RaceDepartment Race07 skinpack (v201443):

    The "left-hand drive, right-hand-drive, left-hand-drive" - rotation of this week won't help, though :D

    Then just put a mirror beside your monitor, and use that :p

    Oh, and invert the steering axis.

    No money, no team racing.

    My game crashed when I took the checkered flag.
    Apparently it didn't like going from 4th gear to 1st, which I always do just for giggles :p

    These cars are really fun to drive, but to be honest, I have no idea how to treat them.
    Closest I can think off is an F1 car.

    I went with pretty much the standard set-up, with a few adjustments to the rear wing,
    gear box, tire pressure, and break pressure.

    Overall the car was okay, but extremely unstable during braking.
    During the two races, I were terrified every single time I had to break.

    Race 1:
    Got a somewhat decent start, and manage to take the lead thanks to drafting.
    But it didn't take long until @Nelson Ullinskey were breathing down my neck, and caused nervousness.
    I think on lap 2 or 3, my biggest fear came true, and during braking at T3, my car got little sideways
    and Nelson passed me. I tried to stick with him, but you know, Alien is an Alien.

    Close to the end, I managed to pick up some speed, and closed the gap by 2 seconds.
    From 10 seconds to 8, but why bother. Since Nelson cheated and used Nos :cautious:

    Race 2.
    Again, a decent start, but unstable car is unstable, so @Dennis Phelan were able to pass
    a few corners later. I mange to hang on to him for a few laps, until he made a mistake,
    and I could pass. I started to celebrate and got cocky. But you know what?
    After few laps, Nelson.... There he was again, using Nos.

    But this time I wasn't going to be a good dog and just roll over.
    I defended hard, but still on a fair level. Of course, I lost speed thanks to this.
    I slapped myself in the face and said "stop looking in the mirror" and it worked for a while,
    until Nelson once again cheated, and used Nos, and were once breathing down my neck.
    I thought a few times that he was going to pass, since we were side by side a few times.
    But i managed to hold him off, and could take checkered flag.

    Thank you for an epic fight Nelson, and thank you Dennis for this event.

    Small crowd, but that still was some great racing :)

    Managed to shave off some more time compared to TT'ing on the weekend throughout the practice sessions.. With qualifying coming closer, I once again opted for less fuel as passing here is.. complicated? ;) Managed to snatch pole off of Nelson who was on race fuel and not quite getting in a perfect lap :)

    Started fairly well, but so did the rest.. Daniel must've spent some time in the wind channel as he gained so much drafting and thus went by easily - next up was Nelson, which put me into P3...
    [​IMG]
    ...up until the first hairpin passage, anyway - I clipped the inside barrier and spun around to let Dennis and Damo through. Regained control and set off to hunt down Damo in P4.
    [​IMG]
    Both he and Dennis didn't put up much of a fight.. Unfortunately, I then decided I could go for some shaky lines and Dennis was past me again!
    [​IMG]
    This time, he put up quite a defense and we got a nice battle going until, going into T1, he clipped a barrier and bumped into my Radical, sending the both of us for a short spin - nothing damaged, though
    [​IMG]
    Afterwards, I had a fairly relaxed ride home to take P3.



    Starting fairly well into race #2, as well, I got by Damo but once more, Daniel was up to some slipstream action and got by before T3 while Dennis got himself into P1. Hunting the both of them down, Nelson, who was directly behind me, touched a wall and bumped off into me - we both got back into action pretty fast, though (and, once again, no damage)
    [​IMG]
    We got by Damo again and tried to catch up with Daniel and Dennis - with the latter spinning out, we got into 2nd and 3rd position, very close, nice racing... up until I imitated Dennis' maneuver and lost direct contact to Nelson, who then proceeded to hunt Daniel.

    Thanks for racing, everyone, see you next time!
