Just when I considered the cold I caught well-timed as there wouldn't be much need for training this week... Nords comes along ;)
Oh, well then.. went for a few somewhat decent laps (read: lots of room for improvement ;)) in a nice mix of modern, old and ohmygodwhatishappening :D

Mustn't run the CSL up to the red line too much. I think it's possible to fry the engine in a single lap if you shift too late habitually (I came close once)

I found the Mini to be difficult to keep on the limit, many crashes but the CSL has techology so old it's like not having any. I rate it the most difficult of those driven so far!

Hm, just bought Retro Pack and Race Injection in order to have a few laps today but still one car missing (see screen shot). Don't know what expansion I'm missing. Think I have ever add on. :( Any suggestions?

Reik, it may be worth verifying R07 and all your expansions as they're installed, see if anything's gone wonky there. Do you have any mods installed? Maybe it's a ModelID/ClassID problem.

Dennis, you can see that list when hoovering the mouse arrow over the class used on the server.

I think I should move away every mod - there could be a conflicting one.

Tried to find more time by making the car rotate more. Still understeers in places, but it's better. Also adjusted my brake bias about 5 times during the lap :p

The good news:
BMW Z4 GTR (GT Club) - 7:19.371

The bad news:
- with April's new time, the gap increased ;)
- my brake pedal's acting up again. Guess I will disassemble them & strengthen the spring even more, but seems like they're begging for retirement

Yup, seems likely - while the "spring fix" worked for a while, I doubt that I (or my tools :D) will be able to strengthen enough to replicate myself pulling the pedal back with the foot.
I just had a go with the deadzone settings, most of the jitter seems to vanish at 6%, to get all of it, I had to set it to a whopping 10%, though. No idea if/how much that will hurt my driving :D

(Goodness, this thing is stable, but it's complete lack of agility makes me miss the Sunred ;))

These two cars are in the same class, but I wanted to see if there was much difference between them. It's pretty small really, by the time I had them about where I wanted them the GT2 had a slightly lower top speed. But it drove pretty much the same everywhere else, just a tiny bit quicker I guess.

Hope there's another time trial next week. I'm not at home until Sunday. Since I've bought any expansion now I hope I won't see any unknown anymore. (Retro Max seems to have very cool cars)
