Important: Please pay special attention to Racedepartment's Golden Rule: If you hit another driver and disadvantage him, we expect you stop and let the other driver regain his position on you. If this costs you many places (eg first few laps) then consider this a penalty for your driving infringement. Doing this shows respect to your fellow drivers and will encourage drivers to be more careful. Please use some care when letting the other driver regain position, do not immediately stop your car on the driving line where it can cause further accidents. Not following this rule will result in your membership of the racing club being terminated at once!

Any chance of this being a WTCCX race? :) This track is wicked fun, cause its so long and wide, perfect to let the fire breathing monsters run free

If not I will sign up with the Lacetti.

Oh, I was hoping to race you on S60 even grounds Warren, but I did just download that skin the other day, If it has to be a Merc, then that is the skin I would take too.
Well William, we could always run Mercs on even ground, I might need some company at the back, maybe see who spins the least (or most :laugh2:).

Hmmmn William, maybe you'll get your wish to make it a Volvo athon.

I just did a very quick try with the S60, popped in my Mid Ohio setup, and did only 5 laps, all about 1.5 secs quicker than my PB in the Merc. The S60 seemed to like this track, and I haven't even played with the setup. The Volvo is waaaay easier to drive than the BMS, but I'd love the challenge of trying to drive the Merc.

That sounds good Warren, I actually tried the Mercedes, but although there were moments of greatness, it was hard to complete a lap with any kind of speed. I am still having trouble setting this volvo up though.
It seems like when I go to turn it hooks up, then slides then hooks up again all it one turn, sort of a wobble turn. I have messed with the front toe in extensively and nothing seems to help it. Maybe I don't have the rear springs right or something, but it isn't right yet.
See you tomorrow. :)

William, I have posted my setup here:
http://forum.racedepartment.com/volvo/12274-volvo-s60-road-one.html

I've not spent a lot of time adjusting it, it's really just a variation of my Mid Ohio setup, but seemed reasonable. The Volvo S60 has some interesting quirks which I'm getting used too now, but it's a bit like the Chevy, it likes to let the rear end go but seems more unpredictable. It needs to be turned very smoothly, if you chuck it into a turn too quickly, it can give up on you and start to bog down a bit, and is slow to gain momentum again.

My best time with this setup is 2.39.4 secs, but don't know if it is any good (but certainly better than my efforts in the Merc. :wink2:). That time was in practice mode with reasonable fuel level.

thanks Warren, I just checked it out. It is really amazing but other the the front toe in and the rear wing plus a few ticks on the rebounds they are really close. Gearing, tire pressure, springs are almost spot on with yours. Maybe I am running to much toe in as I am at -.25 and you are at -.40. I will have to try this, plus my wing was on 3 and you have 4. Thanks, I will give it a go.

thanks Warren, they are really close.
More importantly, are our times close, or do I have to find another 2 seconds? :laugh2:

If it is of any value, I could post my replay of the best time so far, but you are probably quicker anyway.
