    Sorry to hear that Eric, very sad. Having lost many family pets I know it's always difficult for all involved.

    I didn't realise that was due this weekend.. it's actually supposed to be the GT4's at Oulton Park Fosters though.... For some reason I thought it was free week this time. May be a bit late to get it going now though.

    I've never run the alternate configurations at Oulton yet. I enjoyed the full layout we ran in the GT3's though. We had a good battle there for a while before the game froze me out :thumbsup:

    Only place I can see to make up any time is the first downhill left into the sharp right..too fast of an entry will start to tank slap then its grass time

    I feel like the Ginetta's are going to win all of these races, they seem to be really nimble compared to the other gt4's. Haven't really tested the aston out much at fosters though

    I had the same concern. And still do, but I figured that opening things up to choice is better than closing things off. If the Ginetta is faster, people will gravitate towards it. I still think the Mustang can be fast at certain tracks. It was for me when I tested it. Almost took it, but it struggles around corners.

    I think you can come up to speed here in a hearbeat. First off, these are slow cars. Second, we now have many good setups as a base. Third, it's a short race. The only issue you might have is over-steer, but after driving that bastard 78D, I think anything is going to feel like slow motion. lol.

    I flirted with a 58, until the last corner. lol. But, I will say, the track is perfect for these cars. I was worried it would be too short, but it's not. It's also very fast and very old school. That's a great combination, IMO. Also very dangerous. :O_o:. You would not think so in these cars, but damn. Eric, it's not only grass time for me if I take that kink in 5th the wrong way (which is the fastest to me) but wall time too. Also after the first hard right, the next right can be tricky (don't put too low a ride height in) because you have to cut that corner with at least 1/2 of your car flat out to be fast. And if you are just a tiiiiiiiiiiiny bit off, it's BUMP....then "oh s*it'

    The Ginetta may flurish here but it may not be as good as the Aston's straightline speed at Road America, and Watkins Glen. You have to look at the overall. The Bentley's struggled at Outlon Park in the GT3 and the BMW was just about flawless. The Ginetta vs Aston comparison is roughly the same.

    I'm not sure you can compare engine parts with humans behind the wheel. I'm not going to beat Peter much of anywhere, but definitely not in an open wheel car that is identical.
