.. Wish they would bring back the US servers so I wouldn't get kicked off all the time because my ping is too high.
My ping times are in the 150-160ms. Only got disco'd once so far, in 2nd about 100yds from the finish :O_o:
To all the others on the server it probably looks like I'm bebopping all over the track and leaving puffs of smoke behind.

I jumped into 1 yesterday and David showed up and I was like, alright! Lets get it on! And then boom! You're kicked off. Go get a better internet provider!
We all need to chip in and buy a big house in Amsterdam so we can live there and play raceroom 24/7. Who's with me?

From my end, it will be business as usual. Unless you decide to hang around with us back markers. :thumbsup:

Well back in the old days when only 56k modem was the only thing available and the speeds and ping were vital. When it took near in eye I 3 hours to download a 3-minute song. But within five years to megabytes speeds were available and the ping, download, upload we're just is crucial. I should imagine there is some software the help you as there was then.

As for chipping in to buy a big house count me in. But unlike you, I would be more interested in a different reason which comes in many varieties.;):roflmao:

These cars have hardly had any alterations in their setups. Mainly camber, wing, a little toe and dampening. I can probably safely say these changes will have to be made for racing purposes. And additional alterations naturally.
So, in conclusion, treat the set-ups as a starting point. A very good starting point even if I say so myself no one else will.

Have a good race have fun and keep it clean.

@Calvyn White, No love for RUF? :laugh:

Can't say I blame you though. Right now its a toss up between the BMW M6 GT3, the SLS and the 650s. I'm leaning more towards the Bimmer though. I set my fastest time with the McLaren, and both of the German cars are tenths off. But the BMW just feels best between the 3.

Not much love for the Bentley either. To be honest I totally forgot the make one for the big lumbering beast.
The Beamer is a good choice big heavy car is ideal for this track with the simple reason they can be on occasion some door-to-door. Nothing serious you understand.
But taking the Ruff for instance it's just got to see the side of a Beamer, Bentley, Callaway and it will go shooting off the track. Like a donkey at a horse race. Some may say that's net code. I like others will say that car (donkey) just :poop: itself.:roflmao:
The bigger cars will always win the battle of the door to doors.

Thanks for the setups Calvyn. Didn’t cure my inherent slowness but felt better to drive.

From what I saw your lines look good the speed will come in time. Glad to have you part of the club.
Thanks David. I think I'm suffering most under braking. I don't have a dedicated rig, and the really stupid bit is that my chair is on wheels. :giggle: While I try to rotate them perpendicular to the force before driving they invariably move.
This has been a good group to race with. Learn following those in front for the first lap or two and then briefly when getting lapped. Good fun.

Can you take the wheels off? I used to do that.

if you have the room for it mount your pedals on a piece of plywood long enough to put the chair on. Then put the chair on the plywood and mark an area that the legs will go in. Mount 2x4's on the plywood in such a way that when you put the chair legs inside the perimeter of the 2x4's the casters will not roll. Now you have a stable base. I did this before I got my rig. worked like a charm and I used it for two years.

@Scott_H I had the same problem. Switched chairs - problem solved. Pulling the wheels should work too.
How are you securing your brake pedals? I used an old Amazon box for spacing between the pedals and the wall. :thumbsup:
