    Well, I'm :poop: in these cars but was going to sign up anyway until Dorian turned our way. We're almost dead center in the projected track and it's supposed to hit here Monday AM and not be gone until late Tuesday so I'll have to pass on this one. If by some miracle it turns or things change I'll jump in.

    I don’t know about you being poopy in these cars. I chased you on the leader board last night, you and Toban, for a good bit till I caught you. I hope Dorian (my wife’s name funny enough) steers away from you though.

    @sc4dr you must be running quite a bit more downforce than me. I keep pulling away from your ghost by 0.6 through the first two sectors, then you go all the way down to 0.5 under in the last three turns.

    I think my ghost is with a default setup. I tried a bunch of different settings, and I was faster with stock. It's still early, so that might change!

    At least on this track, everything I've learned from the other cars I've raced is pretty much out the window!

    This is another car I cannot seem to get up to speed in. Gonna try to hammer out a good number of laps to get used to the car and track then go for time. I may do a race with the AI just to get the laps in. Otherwise I am gonna have to rely upon a steely gaze and cat-like reflexes to stay competitive.

    I’m with Greg, even though I have set a couple decent laps, they are not consistent at all. Last night I’d never cussed at the monitor that much before. I ended up stepping out of my rig in pure disgust! Lol

    So I'm batting around the idea of starting at the back of the grid by not qualifying. I can do that right? @David DeGreef

    Sure, but in a lot of cases it leads to unnecessary accidents and some bad blood. I'm myself against it, in pretty much every club event difference in pace between last and first place is massive, which may lead to contact caused by different racing lines. Of course that doesnt always happen and in itself can produce some interesting challenge and show

    Well, I did think of that. I'm not the kind of racer that tries to push through the pack at the start, and with a 40 min race I have time to just work my way through. I'm pretty patient usually. I'm just worried if I don't do the qualifier it would boot me or something stupid like that. I don't see anywhere in setup to add ballast. Is that even possible?

    I don't feel this way anymore. I'm actually really feeling them now (what a car!), that's why I feel like I need to do something to even the playing field a bit. I will leave it up to you guys. If the majority wants to slow me up so be it. We will figure out the best method to achieve it.
