Mediums were fine in race 2. ;)
My best lap was 1:01.2 on lap 9, lap 25 was a 1:01.3.
Never broke the 100 degree barrier. 8)
Crew chief telling me every couple of laps "cold tyres all round" on the last turn. Must be a bug, I looked each time, both left tyres were about 93-98, lol. In other parts of the track I'd get "right tyres are cold"

Another slightly disappointing round results wise for me. As usual though, just starting to get a good feel of the car by the end of the season. Really good racing with the few guys I had been chasing or close to in the packs, but my own mistakes cost me...
Q. Hoping for a decent round with fairly good time inside top 10.
R1. Lap 1, Hanging on the outside of someone over the hump and went out on the grass after we rubbed doors and dropped a couple of spots, it put me off a bit and went really wide on the last turn and ended up last. Pushed on with some good battles and some positions gained.
R2. Similar story lose some positions because of mistakes, gain some back lol. Sorry Wally, I think I got a tyre on the grass on the exit of the hairpin, huge tank slap and headed for the wall on the inside. Kept it off the wall but headed back for the track. I knew you guys weren't too far behind so I had the brakes locked hoping I wouldn't go back on track, but I think I ended up right in the middle of it. Wasn't sure if I should gas it and get it off the other side or not, split second decision I hoped being stopped would make it easier for you guys to get by.
I was feeling more confident in the car and really hoping for a couple of top ten finishes but even though my consistency is getting better, my mistakes are costly and still too often, really sorry to anyone who caused grief with my mistakes. Thanks for a great season Wally (sorry)

After having a brief test last night I found it to be a "good" mod, not excellent. Agree with most of the criticism and with most of the positives. More so I definitely don't think it is worth the $25 cost, well done to these guys for the effort they've put in though

That's what I put in the shoutbox yesterday.

It seems it may not be as obvious there.  :)
There's a shoutbox?

Great racing with you guys, thanks Phil for putting this track up on a week that I'm home and thanks to G0D for the track mod. Good close racing with a couple of minor bumps and grinds, these cars are fun drive.

That's interesting that your CrewChief crashed, because Rob's did too. I wonder if it's somehow track related.
Got a feeling it could be, haven't had any issues like that in while. I think discord updated beforehand, crew chief had a sound file update and steam mentioned something about an update as content manager opened ac. So could be anything really, see what happens at a different track I suppose.
Back home from night shift two days early because of my grandmothers passing the night before. Good news though I got to attend another race with you guys. So no practice except for on the night, feeling a bit trashed from travelling all day and my mind not being in the best condition I still felt I needed to get on with it. Last time I drove this track was probably about 8-9 years ago when I tried out iracing.
I got about 30 or so laps in practice but couldn't seem to get any faster than a 1:45, qualifying was the same and got in 16th for race 1.
R1. Steady cautious out of the gate making a couple of spots when others had incidents, meant (I think) I had an angry pack behind me. Tried to keep composure but a lot of pressure from Shayne (being hunter) I somehow managed to hold him off for 8th.
R2. Felt much more composed (except for a couple slide/drifts around the back section), right on Shaynes rear with ab156 on mine, my crew chief suggested I make my car as wide as possible. Mistake, I got my left rear on the grass in the braking zone coming through the back dipper and put me into a four wheel sideways drift collecting Shayne in the process (sorry mate).
Over all the round felt like a disappointment for me although still good fun as usual. Others mentioned stuttering, I had it too but minor, during practice when people were connecting to discord were the biggest ones. Also my crew chief deserted me (crashed or something) sometime during the second race. Still good fun thanks to all

I am sorry about the lose or your Grandma
Thank you

You are a funny man Mael, problems with the Range Rover do not stop at rust unfortunately :o. I person I know put a the diesel engine from a Discovery into a Range Rover, he is very happy with the result.

Only recently heard the same comment about an engine leaking oil , if it stops it's empty at the HARS aircraft museum at Albion Park. They were referring to the engines in a Lockheed Super Constellation. they are a 18 cylinder radial engine , two banks of 9 cylinder behind each other, supercharged and  turbocharged, 55ltr,  putting out 3500 bhp!!!!, built in 1951.

Have you seen it happen IRL  :o :o :o 8) 8) 8)
Yep, I live nearby that airport

Something is weird though.
The leader board doesn't seem to work and neither does camber extra. :-\
Camber app wasn't working correctly in these cars for me either, haven't tried any leader board stuff yet.
