@brc19 Try the Vette!
After driving the Vette I put on my Capri pants and was braking waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too early.
@sc4dr @ko41 I'm going to spin the Monza a few more times before donning the Capri pants.
Just remember to get the Monza straight or damn close before you bury the throttle. You would hate my setup for that car. I’m running no wing!
I'm sorry guys I'm going to have to back out.
If Saturday races at this time are done on the regular though I would love to make the next one and make it a regular thing.
There is an R3E event at this time every Saturday now, so we look forward to seeing you and our other American friends whenever you guys can make it.
Sweet. I look forward to it too.
I tested that little beast last night. I went with basic stock set-up but tightened the rear springs and anti-sway bar. I thought about going with less wing but also wondered how that would affect tire wear. I may give it a shot tonight to see how it goes.
I also wondered if you had drastically reduced wing to get that time. Now I know.
With 20 minutes races tyres should be fine. It's interesting to read about wing setups, i run mid wing in vette, because in lowest settings, speed you gain is not worth it compared to braking distance but more important, high speed drifts arent as much fun, 9-12* is the way
*need further testing
It’s funny, some cars get squirrelly as you start dropping wing, but some also start to become predictable the lower you go with it. The Monza is one of those cars. I didn’t like it with half wing because it wasn’t doing anything great. The lower I dropped the wing, along with more aggressive turn in adjustments, the faster it went. Similar to the DP.
OK gentlemen, smile pretty for the cameras...
ohh @sc4dr you really had to switch to fabcar
its amazing how you can give it a rest for a while, give it a go, relaxed and rested and boom, better pace, no problemo
I tried some low wing runs, damn it was so bad
Haha that was just my first go at it. Fabcar is my Jam. I run so many different cars that it doesn’t matter too much really
Oh and that’s also no wing in Fabcar.
Workload for tonight and tomorrow night: Run Monza with no wing. Set a decent time with Fabcar, no wing.
Imma gonna be busy pulling gravel outta my rear end.
Yeah...Harder than it sounds...
Funny thing is that the Fabcar is pretty damn nimble around RA. I think it turns in better than the Capri, of course I do not do much set-up other than wing and stiffen the rear springs and anti-sway bar.
That thing is sooo dang fast on the straights. I was hitting the high 180's at the end of the front straight. My times in the Capri were not much better at 0 wing, I may decide to run the Fabcar.
I spent so much time on the Fabcar, though, I did not get to the Monza. Maybe tonight...
Nobody seems to be talking about the BMW. Is it a really bad choice?
It doesn’t have the legs like the other cars. You have to really be good in the bimmer to be competitive at Road America. It also is hard to keep it in the power band, which will hurt you when getting a good run down the straights. It needs a ton of setup tweaks too.
Ooops. I actually found it the easiest to drive out of the group. I guess someone has be come last. I'll give it my best
