    This open wheelers are so much fun. Race one... no comment. What is with haybales on the way to china beach? They are made of concrete :devilish:..ffs. Well, in my view, I got pushed off track and hit one. Did 360 spin across all axes resulting in 155s repair time...also caught speeding ticket on the way to pit box :mad:.
    Race two... fast at the start. Then did some mistakes and ended third. Front tyres were completely wasted... any tips on how to make them last longer?
    I had problems with front tyres on all tracks we raced... :ninja:

    Think that's just a side effect of my setup. It's quick but it eats tires. Normally, I'd say a setup with higher tyre pressures, less camber and less rear wing would be an option. On the other hand, that'll make the car more difficult to drive.

    @TobiasR .. I saw you sent setup yesterday... I used mine. I don't think it is smart to change setup an hour before race :) Thank you anyway... will give it a try.

    Hi Erik, I had the same problem than you. The pressure & camber setup doesn't fix that in my case.
    I successfully found a correct wear by changing my driving. I reccord my 20 min training races with the temp/wear tyres frame and I correct myself where temp is too hot. Sorry for my bad english.

    Hey Steve, no problem and definitely not necessary to apologize. I just wish i can do on track that you guys do, and maybe i won't be lapped....:redface:
    Until next time...

    Race n.1: I' ve looked the replay, and yes i' ve closed you... Sorry it was not my intention, i though you had enough space to stay on my left... i' ll try to put more attention next time, but, sincerely some laps before you pushed me on grass... on the last turn, do you remember? That said, let' s look forward and keep driving fair as possible. :thumbsup:
