    How have you gotten that thing to turn? I ran some laps in it and smashed into the outside wall at every turn, it simply would not turn in. Do you have some magic hidden away?

    For me, no magic. I just brake for the turns a little earlier and because the rear steps out, I am very careful when rolling onto the throttle. I tend to take the turns a bit slower than the Z4 I was testing, and use as much of the track as I can.

    Also on turns where some cars can go flat out in 4th or 5th gear, I have to lift briefly. I am not familiar with the names of the turns, so I think turns 6, 9 and 10 are the ones I am referring to. (Just looked at the map)

    I see that you are using the 2013 #41. I did most of my testing in the 2015 #25, so that will be my ride for the festivities. :D

    OMG I take back what I said about this car! Did some setup tweaks, and holy smokes it can stretch it's legs. I'm not going to say what the times were (you can check out the leaderboard), but it's not far off pace of my faster cars. Here's what I changed in setup for you Camaro guys:

    FT Toe -.40
    RR Toe +.15
    FT ARB 617 lbs
    RR ARB 731lbs
    Wing 0deg
    Brake 100%
    Diff Preload 3 clicks

    Pretty much all my cars I run little to no wing. Those long straights command it.

    Please delete me, I didn't show time, it's in USA and I'm in Europe, so it's too late for me.

    Thanks

    David,

    I am in. When you announced it last week on TS I committed, I just forgot to go to the thread. I will be in a Porsche.

    I might try this out tonight if I get home early enough. I've been trying a really loose set up, mostly for fun and modifying the default. I managed to get down to just below 2:08 consistently last night with both set ups although the approach to driving both is completely different.

    Tonight is going to be fun guys

    If you are having a bit of trouble figuring out the track or when to shift, brake, etc. This video of a onboard lap in a Audi GT3 is an excellent example of how it is done:

    It is a 1:59 lap in an unrestricted car but don't worry about the lap time just watch where he shifts, lets off the gas, coast, and his brake and gas inputs. If you can duplicate this then you should be pretty fast or at least know you are doing it right. These kind of hot lap times are nice but in the race you just need to be consistent and fast to do well and enjoy the race! Just so you know, I'm not anywhere near this time or some of the other times posted on this thread but then I'm old and slow and mostly look for consistency and a good race with whoever happens to be at my pace:cool:

    BTW, the best setup change I have found for the cars I am testing (will race in the Audi) is to lower the front spring rates a click or two. Helps on turn in and control. Helps with the way I drive, your results may vary:D

    I must be all messed up. Where is everyone? I had to reinstall my wheel driver. Now I cannot find the server on Team Speak.

    Yeah... I kind of forgot that the times have been moved back an hour and I misread the Military time.

    I was on track for a second with 2 hours of practice time to go. I think I am gonna eat dinner and then get some more seat time with the car.

    I saw 2 slots left. If there's still an opening, I'm in. I'll be heading in straight from work but will be in time for Qual.
