    That was fun! This first corner on Cascavel is challenging in the Formula Truck but totally awesome in the F3!!!!

    The downforce is strong with this one. Premium Member

    Considering I'm not the type that jumps into a race without any preparation, it went quite well even though I was slower than last time on this track. Still learning this skill. Good fight, but crashed in the first corner at the end.

    My mom was bothering me with her notebook in qualification because when something shows up on the screen she is scared to death. I was updating antivir and then jumped right into the race. Then again, something showed up on the screen and she was speeking to me the whole first lap, clearly not knowing I was racing. :mad: Nervous in the race, crashed, was in the pits, started prematurely, speeded in the pitlane, served stop&go penalty and continued to the end. :) No idea how they repaired that rear wing, but right rear tyre still showed some damage.
     
  17. I crashed in the first lap in a place ive never crashed before :( Bram braked a little earlier than I expected and I locked up and lost it. Front wing lost and wonky steering, but I was enjoying the challenge of driving with a damaged car. Still 5th due to some retirements :) Might join another later this week

    A fully fueled F3 behave significantly different than an open wheeler in qualy trim. Especially in the first lap the danger of bottoming out and loose control is big so I always take it easy in the beginning of the race.

    I still need to figure out if adding packers on the setup solves this.
     
  19. iv'e been trying to figure that one out for some time, not sure whether 1.0 is ideal or 0.4 :)
