Wasted $2.30 or so on this mod...FR2 should be super fun, but its ruined! These cars have a fantastic amount of downforce and should be glued to the race track, but there not! The tires are the issue, there way, way too hard! The car is sliding around every slow to medium speed corner turning them into sprint cars on a dirt track on Saturday night at Ascot Park. I don't understand the thinking behind this philosophy of trying to get all the cars equalized by forcing them all to use the same hard (like old skateboard wheels made from clay:mad:)?
I remember the 70's when in F1 they had free choice on tires, body style, engines, aero etc...Those were the good old days. So to revisit them I just bought a PS4 Pro and PC 2 and will download the Spirit of Le Mans DLC as well as others and I'm going back to the old days....(simulated of course:p).

Number 14 please. I believe I don't rate the black car yet. Black flags, of course but Black FR2... It's a stretch.

I will be there. No switching this week, and my days off are now Wednesday and Thursday. So no excuses outta me!

Oh man this is going to be tough. I am not the strongest modern open wheel driver out there, and that is because I just can't seem to jive with the cars. But that is not to say I am not going to give it my best effort. I just got to learn how to run these things without max downforce.

(So much for excuses, huh? LOL)

In with #10 car please. This might be a good race for fixed setup? I ran a couple laps when you first announced the race, and it took a couple tries just to make it around the track with no limits infractions. I hopped on tonight for the first time since then, and with a mostly stock setup and max down force I was able to click off a couple decent laps. It's definitely the most stable with all the wing you can throw at it. This week has gotten tougher for me with my Father in law passing, and I haven't really been able to get excited about much. I'm forcing myself to drive just for some relief. I'm starting to feel a little better thankfully.

I’m not sure I’m going to race tonight fellas. I just haven’t been able to get it together. Between family and work, this guy is tapped. So if I don’t show, that’s why.

Sorry @David DeGreef , but I won't make it tonight. I was really looking forward to this race but have to bow out because of a holiday event that I must be at. Hope to see all of you next week and have fun with the race. Watch out for that first corner it's a tough one with these cars. Have fun, Keith

I love this course because of turn One and Spoon. Each can kill a lap, but when you get these two right it generally leads to a good one.

Hope to have you and Dan back soon.
