Lol and  i'll follow that with... Wahey, finally finished a race! (small steps...)

Tough going though, for 60mins. however something was going on as i was quite happy with the car past half-distance and I'd guessed the fuel and put more in than i really needed and naround lap 28 decided to pit and not change tyres, which is a first. Maybe i wasnt having to compensate too much for the setup and push them too much but they didnt really go off too much at all.

Thought i might had a chance to catch pops at one stage but was clearly too far away.

Thanks to Pops for putting up with us and organizing all this and to Pete for putting the money in the meter (server)

Now a bit hesitant over the radical, never quite got on with it. back end too stiff front end too soft.

That's the problem with the more complex cars in sims, they're not easy to set up.  The setup I used last night has 550 springs at the front and 500 at the rear.  That's just wrong on a car with a distinct rearward weight bias.

It would be interesting to see a realistic DP setup and compare.

Why, the DP is tail heavy and oversteers, increasing front spring rate is a perfectly reasonable way to balance out the oversteer.

I won't give you a setup again if you're going to moan and groan about it.

Fun race and I was placed pretty much where I expected without the usual merticulous amounts of preparation you need to iRacing. You really need to be at one with the combination, not just the car or track... I suppose like real life!  Roll Eyes

anyway.... good race even tho it ended with a bent car. Can we not have repairs on when you 'don't' tow? Or are the server settings not that detailed yet?

After getting past the half-way mark and running wide coming onto the straight I glanced the wall and put the steering out. Pitted, but obviously that was useless, so tried to carry on and spun twice as it was undrivable.

Good racing with TT & Paul HT to name a few!  (sorry Paul!)

Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to practice this one on the Monday night but I have to say, within two scrappy as hell laps I realised this combination was going to be sennnnnnnsational. The Riley felt absolutely awesome around here! The balance was just beautiful and I was finding if I could smooth out my inputs as opposed to doing my normal trick when I try and go fast of chucking it in violently, the rewards were there.

Was pleased with the practice pace but I made such a hash of qually. A combination of buggering about with setups, struggling to get out of the pits in clean air and losing it on cold tyres left me with one opportunity to get a run in towards the end. I didn't banzai it as I was still in 15th at that point and just needed a banker - fortunately I managed to salvage sixth spot which was a relief all things considered!

Managed to get a jump on Gizmo at the start but it was shortlived as I got overexcited on cold tyres and promptly handed the spot back within a few corners. As it happens I'm actually glad I ended up where I did with Ken and Mike as I was really enjoying that trust that meant I could run close with them both - they may not echo this sentiment by the way lol. I felt like I had the pace to pull away if I could just get ahead of that blasted Wrightson but he drove very well, solid laps without any major mistakes and as the biggest speed differential was through Westfield I was left with the option to either "do or die" it at Sheene, or absolutely nail Clearways and Paddock to get the run into Druids where I could sense it was possibly on too.

Anyway after plenty of action and many laps chasing Mike later, I thought I'd do the clever thing, dive in the pits and come out in clean air, just long enough to get the jump (provided he also stopped for tyres of course!). Unfortunately when I rejoined it was right into traffic in 11th spot and as I fast approached Paul T, I went to take the wide line into Paddock to get a run into Druids, when he lost it and I promptly collected him for good measure. Car was buggered, job done. Bit of anticlimax as I was having a blast up until that point but just one of those things.

Thanks Ken and Mike anyway - it really is a pleasure when you're able to run Centimetres away from somebody safe in the knowledge the braking points and lines etc will be consistent - I didn't do a very good job of using my momentum and I really have to stop having a look at gaps when following, only to compromise my own line but all in all that was a slice of what I love about this simracing malarkey! Think I lost half a stone too lol.

Grats Brendan and podium guys - if I'd have know I was 0.021 off your fastest lap of the race I'd have tried a bit harder to rob that accolade from you but I'm not sure there was much left to be fair!

Well done to Mr. Gymer on the championship - well earned!

Can we do it again tonight?  Grin

That was Brendan's fault, I kept wondering when he was going to press the throttle down all the way. Roll Eyes

I was just that fast you missed me Dave Wink

Apologies! Quite right, I remember thinking it was you I was dicing with at the time and later realising it was a different blue car - I'm easily confused  Roll Eyes.
