I was thinking 90 min.
What's up for next week?
Never mind, found it.
and this is why I was warned not to ask for suggestions Suggestion box is full
Well, finally got home and processed my video of last night's race.
With September and the return of the school year, my schedule had changed and this my possibly be my last race. I have to get up very early in the morning, and being awake after 8pm will be problematic, because it's kind of dangerous to drive a bus while tired. Thanks for putting up with me and my quirks, it was fun and hopefully I can make some appearances in the future.
So that's where you developed your racing chops? Hopefully when you are able you will join us. See you next time Bill.
I chuckled during the beginning of the race. -Greg -"someone has their wing setting low" -Brandon- "Or someone has it too high" …. Priceless
I think maybe mirroring real world races might help? The race this weekend is F1 at SPA, so maybe you should of put together an X17 race at SPA? And I actually like doing 90 minute races occasionally (have done 6 hr races before at Le Mans). The only reason I didn't do this one is because I didn't believe I could hang with Bock (Damn Bock). I practiced for about 100 to 200 laps but just couldn't find consistancy enough.
No it was a computer issue and I'm not sure what it was exactly. Today was hurricane day, took about 4 to 6 hours to pass by but it was barely a hurricane (just became a Cat 1) so no damage, all is well. Power was out for surprisingly only 6 hours for me. Better than the 3 months without power after hurricane Irma 2 years ago!
I like the 90 min races! they are brutal on my hands and back most times, but I like being pushed mentally and physically. No problem with the combo, but I personally think you should have done P1 instead of the 911 class to make it closer to the real endurance races. I wish we had 3 classes running actually. I would love to see a 3 class race at Bathurst or Suzuka!
You are in luck, sign up here.
I tried it with low aero but was too skittish on the track. Then I remembered hearing that Spa, despite it's speed, was considered a moderate to high-downforce track so I set the DF as high as it would go then got the car comfortable. Once I was comfortable I started lowering the DF until my times became consistently slower. Then I raised the DF until I could turn consistent times while still pounding the corners.
I lost speed in the straights but made up a lot of my time in the twisties, and because I could put the hammer down sooner was able to put distance between me and the following car.
My last post got screwed up. My reply is in Greg's quote. Click to expand
Holy crap. I completely forgot about this race. Well, I passed out since it was my day off :/ but damn I really wanted this race.
Lap 3 the last time I saw Bock.
I don't think I ever saw another P2 car for the last 60 minutes, would have been nice to have more drivers racing for 4th on back.
I'm a mid pack driver at best, qualified 7th out of 8 for this race and finished 4th because of attrition.
told you to balast this guy to hell
I am not even sure how I would determine to apply ballast. I think at this point I would leave that up to the fast driver if he/she feels as though they have an insurmountable advantage and want to tighten up the field.
Maybe we strap her to the top of the car?
