    Our racing clubs are foremost meant to gain online experience so please help other drivers out when they have questions about the event, the car, the track, the setup or a combination. This is not a league race, it's not about who wins, it's for some fun, so please join us on TeamSpeak and build a little community spirit! The more fun we make it, the more inclined people will be to join in and make the grids bigger.

    Priority access
    In case of a large amount of sign-ups premium members are given priority access to enter this event.

    NOTE TO CLUB MEMBERS:
    I would just like to remind everyone these club events are just for fun. No matter if you are posting record lap times, or if you are vastly off the pace, how fast or slow you are does not matter. As long as you are able to follow the rules, and be courteous towards other drivers, you have something to contribute as well as something to learn from others. Please don't be discouraged by how well you know the car or track. If you are someone who is normally competing for podiums, but you don't know the track, look at it as a test of your instincts and an opportunity for the slower members to place higher. I realise everyone wants to be competitive, but this results in lower sign ups as people tend to shy away from events they are not as fast in. So please, sign up for events you are slow in as well. This is all about the fun and the learning experience, leagues will come later for all the :alien:'s.

    Gave it a bit of a test run, definitely an interesting way to experience Imola... is there anything I can do to reduce high-speed instability on the brakes? At low speed (2nd/3rd) I can even trail brakes into the corner, but in 4th and 5th touching the brakes is a good way to do a 360. Specially at the end of the main straight, where the early brake zone is curved.

    Adjust your bake bias. Try something like 70. Depending on the rest of your setup that can make a huge difference.

    I had brake bias up to 70 & moved ARBs to 15/5 (from 14/7 I think?) which helps too, it's starting to add understeer at low speeds but maybe I'll find the right balance.

    Yeah, thats part of the challenge with the cobra. Its an old car and the setup is usually a trade off.
     
  11. I realized that the second after I posted that, and I am licensed now.
