    Likewise buddy, good race :thumbsup:. My first stint on the mediums I wore them out faster than anticipated, feels like skating on ice when those tyres go, in these cars especially. Good fun though, with such low damage you could run 100% turbo for most of the race so yea, it was a good battle of different strengths...felt like another Lambo vs. McLaren all over again :roflmao:

    Had a great fight with @dynz for the last 10 mins as well, but that long sweeping right wasn't my favorite corner and lost precious time there every lap, combined with missing a braking point or two and that's all she wrote. After that, came my long standing mission in all these weekend races: don't get lapped! I barely made it before P1 caught me, but afterwards I was like "Damn, this car is such a handful...should've slowed down, my race could've ended 2 minutes ago!" :sneaky::roflmao:

    The long tail is quite the animal, but I'll gladly give it another go...til next time guys.

    You were behind me at the start. So I wanted to keep it that way :)) I think you got caught in the first turn incident? ... Anyway, at the end of the race,I saw you've pitted and then I saw how much you were gaining on softs and I was trying my best to stay ahead because I knew your softs will not last in the last final laps. I made some mistakes also. my hards were yellow. I messed the last corner and the run on the straight had some real adrenaline rush :))

    Here you go George, attached.
    It's a base setup - for Road America I lowered it a touch and set front toe at -1.8, wing at 2. Play with tyre pressures 'n gears to suit:)

    Thanks everyone for welcoming me. Joel, if by "these" you mean group C, then for my part, a shaky "maybe". Adapting to no ABS or TC and having to manage the third pedal made for extra long braking zones and slow lap times. I literally had to dust off my H-shifter, so I am a lot of practice away from having a competent race in this genre. I would love to help fill the grid in a future race though.

    Question to @JoelK : are the servers setup to help those using sequential/paddle shifters in manual cars?

    Reason I asked is that my H-shifter was giving me issues (still is actually), so I decided on race day to try shifting with the paddles. I started out by shifting with the clutch but then I realised during qualifying that I didn't need it...upshifts were fine and downshifts only needed a blip on the throttle; no transmission damage. Had me both confused and relieved, because I figured it wouldn't let me upshift with my foot down and no clutch.

    I guess it just comes with AC that it automatically cuts out the throttle when up-shifting. Using Auto-clutch enables Auto-blip aswell, which I use since I don't have a H-shifter, so it just feels wrong to use the clutch and heel n' toeing when using paddles.

    But the server only allows usage of Auto-clutch, nothing else.

    I didn't realise that TS wasn't working until after the qualifying, and I didn't want to risk (Oculus can be very temperamental) or spend the time investigating the cause (...windows update!), so to all those who might have been shouting profanities @ me after turn one on the first lap, please accept my apologies.

    @Bobby Pennington, I went off @ T2 & T3 on the last lap (trying to catch John) and when I realised that I'd damaged the tires I started to panic. In the corner where we collided I was preoccupied with my erratic gear changes and I didn't see you until it was too late. Unfortunately, I couldn't ask you to carry on. In the end it was a right carry on (you go, no you go...) and we both lost two places :)
