Oh man, sorry Martin just watched this thread now... I'll stay tuned with all your following events here to compare with you.I am struggling to find a setup for this one, I remember struggling the same in FPWS when we raced the Race On version, although I ended up having my best league finish in 5th IIRC, I cant seem to find any consistency and my best so far is a 1.42.1 although most laps are in the high .42s/43s, anyone going to post a setup for this one to give me some ideas, Reik ? Abdul ?
Thank you very much mate, will test it soon. Do you mean mediums for race, or mediums for low fuel hot lapping?There you go. A progression from last race. Might not work with ur driving style.
I ran a few laps with it at Abu and the meds didnt heat up fast enough to hotlap or do qualy runs. I ran softs for 5 lap runs in testing and they were fine.Thank you very much mate, will test it soon. Do you mean mediums for race, or mediums for low fuel hot lapping?

I have a setup to drive a 1:40:1xx in practice with low fuel and softs so far. Now i'll try Abduls.

yesterday i used the Abdul set about suspensions and i change only the differential, wing, gears and stear lock to my style....in practice with soft tyres and about 60liters of fuel was able to do a 1.40.2xx.....during race i did like 12 or 13 laps and the best time was a 41 low or a 40 high ( i didn't remeber well) in the last laps!!!I ran a few laps with it at Abu and the meds didnt heat up fast enough to hotlap or do qualy runs. I ran softs for 5 lap runs in testing and they were fine.
Nobody is invited yet.Great racing yesterday at Abu-Dhabi....the new track version is simply beatifull and absolute pleasure to drive at,so i came very much prepared as opposed to the Valencia track ,where i completely struggled to find car balance and my race was just as bad,because of it....so for Abu decided to sit down and crank out the laps and dial in the car..and it paid off...i think by Sunday i had a pretty good set up ..i drove close to 200laps to get the car where i wanted it...i know its a lot of laps,but in the end car was sweeeeet to drive,and that is REWARDING FOR ME... i dont mind putting in test laps..this mod seems to respond to pretty much everything you change and its real plessure setting up the car up,as opposed to changing things,doing laps and getting very little feedback in return...thats frustrating!
Race1: i didnt do too much practice in the dark,so my pace wasnt the best in qualy...2nd in race1,4th in race2
Race 1 was pretty good for me ...as i was able to get my first FSONE win,incidently same track i got my first MMG one
Race2 was just as exciting...great 3 or 4 of laps with Mattia(thanks for the Gr8 racing M8 ),had an awesome drag race with Abdul and Chris on the straight prior to T8,but Chris braked quite early and i had to jam on my brakes just to avoid hitting him,and that almost created an accident between all 3 of us..in which i couldnt react in time and just slightly tipped Abdul's car which resulted in a spin...sorry Abdul had it not been for the early breaking im sure the outcome wouldve been different...finished 3rd in race 2.
I really enjoy the response from the car when trying to set it up...in fact i enjoy it so much that im trying to participate in the upcoming FSONE season....talking to a few people before the Sunday's race i found out that they have already been invited to the roster...not sure how this invitation thing works at this point,is it based on attendance,skill, gentelmeness, random decisions by the moderators etc,....so because i am so not sure i sent the Ivo Simmons a message yesterday asking him how doest it work,..............well its been 48hrs now and Ivo still hasnt responded....ill continue to hold my breath m8
to Reik: was able to hit a PB of 1 38 044 at Abu on light fuel ...damn i miss the presto time table
