    Never really thought about it but now you've mentioned it you're right. Certainly quite a bit less of a problem with oversteer out of the slower corners. And they are certainly quicker by a significant amount. Which is also surprising.:confused:

    I've never been slotted before and I'm finding it rather uncomfortable. :O_o:

    I wouldn't say they are easier than DTMs... But in, I guess, thank you.

    BTW, is the practice start really 19.00 GMT? I'm only asking because I realized daylight savings ends tonight and I just got notification for an event next week that starts at 20.00 GMT, so I guess the events are moving one hour again over the winter?

    Even I find them easier to drive, much more stable and less prone to unexpected movement.
    Yes that was my mistake, we can probably leave Sunday I think, (but I will let everyone know) and adjust for the rest.
    Unless we can persuade the powers that be to ynw:whistling:
    Oh and you're in:thumbsup:

    Oops gentlemen, due to my advancing years and senility I forgot that the clocks change over Saturday/Sunday, can I ascertain the feelings of the group whether you are happy to begin at the posted time or wish to move it back an hour.
    A simple agree for keeping it and a disagree to move it will suffice, once again my apologies.

    Guess I need more practice, or try different cars/setups.

    Am finding the above quotes of "more stable", "easier to drive" and "considerably faster" concerning, :confused: as I'm finding them unstable, a right handful and of a similar pace to the DTM's.
    Saying that, didn't get a hit in the shoulder at the Doc's (maxed out apparently) and they've put bars on their windows. :rolleyes: So I'm sorta driving with one and a half arms and doing all the gear changing with my left paddle. I'm also medicated to the limit :whistling: ish and not slept for days, so may well be driver related issues. :O_o: Will leave it to last minute, maybe even enter practice, before making the decision, gotta check brain, feet and hands are in communication, without too much lag. :thumbsup:

    Like I said Paul, see how you feel mate, no point in making yourself worse.

    You can tell he was using Crew Chief:D
    And it's seldom you see a full grid where every other driver has my pace.:rolleyes:

    Meant to add, would be more than happy to stick with the published time (in fact I'd prefer it), but willing to go with the majority.

    @Yetch you're not alone with your views regards handling etc but I think I've found a reasonably stable/safe compromise for the DMD. Can talk you through it tonight if it helps?
    Mod Edit: we don't post times in the sign up threads Paul, in case it puts some people off from signing up.
    Apologies. Understood.
