Chaddy, other than Broom, we are all teamed up. And the Mercury gets along pretty well at Maple once you get the final drive sorted.

I'm a little nervous about the entry list being a bit short this week, even more about next week's XBone release.

I was hoping for last week's count and them some this week, with next week being but a close to full lobby.

I'm getting the Xbone (already paid for and waiting to be delivered Very Happy ) but I'll still be doing all events I've signed up for, plus the fewer people there are the better I'll do lol.

I'm sure there'll be some last minute sign ins tomorrow.

Well the list might be shorter for this race. I'm thinking of pulling out all together. It's not do to the face that the XB1 is coming out. It's because I cannot get these cars to drive. I have put in a good 10hrs of driving in the Javelin this week and can't get no better than 1:46.8!?!? That's pitiful!!!!!! I don't want to be a back of the grid car constantly. I'm just getting tired of it!

Hurricane, what assists are you running? Are you on a pad or controller? Is there one particular place where you're losing pace? (corner speed, traction etc?)

Hurricane You had better result than me this week. I hope you stick with it. The reality is we may never be A lobby guys but I'm having good but friendly rivalry With Borgerman Angel and yourself. I got Borgerman this week could not get him last week. Hurricane got me this week but I'll be back. Cool

I had a fun race 2 with Bandit and Wheelwash. Somehow, I found some pace, as I was hitting solid 1:41.6/7s, and as Wheelwash's tires went off later in the race, I really felt as I was getting held up. But every time I got past Bandit, I'd choke a couple turns later and let him back by. The half lap or so we were side by side was way too cool though.

I enjoyed the sprint race but for some reason my race pace just disappeared for the feature race, I was struggling to get below 1:43 when minutes earlier I was getting low 1:42s Sad 

I'm not sure how competitive I'll be round Infineon either, never really found out how to go fast round there but these cars are so fun I know I'll have a grin on my face no matter how fast (or slow) I'm going!!

I really enjoy driving at Infineon, unfortunately I don't seem to go fast around there. The race yesterday was fun, started 7th & finished 7th so I can't complain about that. All the drivers above me were capable of 1:40s anyway.

Oh forgot to mention sorry to Bandit for pretty much forcing him off the track at the start of the sprint race, I was concentrating so hard on not rear ending the car in front I was oblivious to what he was saying!!

I'll be running loads of laps in the Cuda and Javelin, tweeking the tunes on both cars to get our B Lobby mates up to speed. Hope I can help.

Broom, from what Chaddy told me yesterday, all he did was add full downforce to both ends of the cougar, which is something I'd do for Infineon anyway, and he was incredibly quick.

Your too kind Mikey! The basic tune was great Broom just was lacking a wee bit of turn in so added more wing.

TBH, I built a bit of understeer into the cars to begin with, so that those who would normally hate cars with so much power and torque would feel more comfortable with them. This seems to be working, as we have lots of guys that would never race cars of this nature enjoying the series.

For my tunes, i usually start at max frontal downforce and 150% in the rear, then adjust accordingly.
