I'm in, Thanks.
This is the only time this happens:confused: When Dan jumped in for a lap or two just to check it out, and I got in early with an hour to try and beat his ghost!! I'll come back tomorrow and he will be 4 or 5 seconds faster:redface:
But he is always kind enough to share his setups:thumbsup: Thanks Dan for helping us lesser mortals.

Haha you must have posted that a minute before I hopped in the Benz! I think I’m only around 90th. I’m excited about this one. I need to make some new setups because my existing ones aren’t cutting it at Laguna. I’ll post some good ones here soon. The Mustang is a car I want to figure out because it is really fast on the straights.

And for what it’s worth Keith. 23’s are nothing to sneeze about. You are well on your way to victory lane!

World class race you have cooked up here @David DeGreef!

I'm stuck at 171st with the C7 Corvette. I will have to look for an orange car, maybe they are faster.

KO

For whatever reason the c6 is much quicker at Laguna. C7 lacks power

Have not tried the C6 yet. I did try 3 different orange cars, but wasn't any quicker with them.
I think I may be pushing too hard.

I know when I was running Laguna a lot in iracing, I became much quicker when I slowed it down, and clipped those apex markers just right. If there is any a track out there, where you want to use the entire racing surface, this is it.

I figured I would do well in this race. I can turn consistent 1:22's in a Porsche in other sims. This one I do not think I got out of the 1:24's and I had trouble beating my ghost in a Mustang...

I have a lot of work ahead of me.

I agree Greg. This is one of their earlier tracks, and it’s certainly not as accurate as Laguna in other sims that are scanned. I’m treating it like a new track to learn. I had the same issue as you describe, my first few go arounds.
