on a side note, what kind of lap times are ya'll running? I ran a 1:41.9, felt pretty good. but ive found that what 'feels good' is normally about midpack on this game :laugh2:

great fun track though, good cars too. good call man, this'll be a fun race :skywalker:

ran a best of 40.8 but usually in the 41.3 range. I'll ship my setup in the online section of the game for you to try.

The whole RWD learning curve after a month of HONDA driving has me thinking harder than I should. TIre temps are in the 170's right front and in the 180's rear. Not quite hot enough?

I just went with your setup Yves, do you just have to be absolutely on line all the time with that setup? seemed to push quite a bit, I gave it a little more toe out up front and ran a 40.0 with a couple mistakes, overslowed one corner and overcooked myself off line in the next trying to make up for it. I think I could get into the mid 39's with a REALLY good lap after some practice but a 38.3 is silly lol

Wicked fun.

Perfect end to Yves Bday. He managed a Pole and double win!!! Wooot

Race 1 was close til I hit the tires of death and finished 2nd.

Race 2: Lots of battling. At the end for the last 4-5 laps I had to defend with an ill handling/geared car against the insanely quick bday boy. Yves planned a nifty little move and stuck it perfectly on the last lap down the long straight. Well done.

Wicked fun for the 2nd time tonite.

Thanks Yves, and RD. And Happy Bday once more.

Keith

thanks for all the Birthday wishes guy's and for the fun evening :dance2:

qualy: i did a PB of 1:37:9xx but i could have been .200 faster but didn,t put it together to make it happen.

Race 1 : starting from pole and i missed my start and lost 2 places before T1 but i made back to second place under braking at T7 ( long left hander ) and started chasing Keith which i have pass on lap 2 or 3. from there i started pulling a gab slowly but surely until Keith started struggeling and then the gab started to get bigger, finished first with 30 sec advance.

Race 2: wicked fun :dance2: started last but this time had a good start and made a few places at T1, i think i was 4th after T1 behind Keith, in the same lap me and him have traded places 3 times :rotfl: for a few laps i then decided not to attack him so we could make our way into the lead which we did pretty quick enuff. on lap 7 ( i think ) at T9 i over did my braking and hitted Keith so James got the lead ( your 2 minutes of glory :rotfl: ). took us a few laps to catch him and pass him as he made a mistake exiting T3 so once again it was me chasing Keith. by lap 10 i was all over him like a bee on honey :rotfl: and he was defending very hard and i was attacking very hard :giggle: at the end of lap 13 i made a small mistake giving Keith a 1 sec lead over me but i knew he was struggeling so i pushed hard to catch him before the long straight so i could pull a move under braking which i did and succeed :) and took the win home :victory:

thanks Eric for setting the event, RD and all the guy's that was there for the great fun :)

i led the first 2 or 3, I had a stellar start/first lap, then ya'll caught me and I thought id never see you again, then I came in the right hand carousel in the middle of the course and saw smoke and ya'll sittin in the grass, got me all excited...and then you guys caught me again hahahaha, you two are too fast - I think you guys ran me down at a second per lap everytime i had the lead, I tried to stay out of the way as much as possible. i was happy settling for 3rd after seeing those qually times you and keith put down, that 1:39.1 in qualifying was as good as I could do.

Misano= italian for miserable?:wink2:

Well the track has nice flow and long steady state corners. A couple of chicanes just for variety. And of course the curbs of despair and the RED TIRES of DEATH!

Q went well for me as I got a PB and gridded 4th. :dance2:

R1 my start was typically slow. Nobody contacted me while passing. I found myself on the deep inside at T1 and got the wheels on the curb and looped it. HEre come the unsuspecting Chris Buchanan in the Glorioud red ALFA and we KISS like two porn stars. Sorry Chris we both end up banged up badly. wwe both continue fora bit and I retire with a very bad suspension issue.

to Chris' credit, he soldiers on.:victory:

R2 sees me on pole adn getting a really awful start again. Everyone avoids my sorry ass and I fall in the action 8th entering t2/T3. it gets pretty tight in T3 and I end up off the track on the outside. I just can't get it together.

I start to get the laps together and pass a couple guys in the grass/sand and over take chris on the track to settle in to P5 w/ 12 to go. I eat into Gaynall's lead about .75 a lap but am unable to pass and end up having to chase him down for 2-3 seconds back each time I bobble. TWice he parked the car entering a corner I can take quicker and have to evade or contact him which I just don't like to do at all.

We both pass Bob Luneski around lap 10 than I loop it touching the god forsaken curbing again. I can no longer catch anyone with the time remaining and finish 6th.

R2 I had good pace and control but was unable to pass for 4th. Have to work on the race craft more. Each time I would set up Gaynall for a strong run off a corner I'd cook the throttle abit or touch a bad curb and lose time.

Fun event none the less!

Note: can we use Bob's TRack builder to eliminate the RED TIRES and release and update?:party2:

thanks Eric and Yves for putting this together!
