Had to change the gearing quite a bit. With default it never got out of 4th. I also find for some reason I usually use a bit more fuel than other people. Would like to hear from other Short Tail pilots.

Interesting, I've shortened the gears, too, but more for better usability of 3rd on some corners.  I did get out of 4th on the straights, although not much.   However, I do not remember my fuel usage exactly.  I think I got close to 10 laps out of a tank.

That's OK, Wally, I wasn't sure what it really is :)

I'm happy to leave the cars as they are ... but looks like the Short Tail will need 3 stops at Sebring.
I'm using 9.68L per lap. I'm calculating I will need minimum 305L to finish. Full tank = 99L, so 3 stopper or fuel saving.
As ab said, the main thing in this series is really about your class. All I'm aiming for is to be at the pointy end of the Short Tails. It's just fun to drive  :D
Happy to leave it also!  Just did a few laps the the C9 is a huge handful to drive . . so you can have it!  :)

I went with the C9 because it was a hand full, I'm hoping to learn a few things!

The shortail  is on rails, puts down its power with no fuss, 100% @ apex sure no problem. Stops staight and true.
The longtail is almost on rails, puts down its power with no fuss unless your in second and mash the go pedal. Stops straight and true.
The Wankelx4 is on rails, puts down its power with out fuss unless your in the upper rev range. Stops straight and true. Has great bug eye mirrors.
The C9 goes like Drunken Monkey Sex! in a straight line. Is on ice throught the corners, putting down power is like disarming a nuke, and then needs an extra 50-100m to pull up. You also have to deal with s/l tails and wankels running up the back due to early brake marker.

It will make for a intersting season.

Also Put Kcender in Model T and he would still be running rings aroung me.
Ha ha, good summary of the cars :)

@Bird, that means modding encrypted KS content, more downloads, checksum errors, cars all blandly the same... fuggedaboutit.

That's interesting, in my own testing I was using 8.7l per lap. Have you changed the gearing much from default?

Phil, I've just realised this is available on Steam as "Early Access".  This means you can buy it and try it (unlimited), then get a refund, no questions asked, while it's in Early Access.  Just try it.
Then refund it.  Then if you did like it, re-purchase it at the next sale.   It's all perfectly within Steam's current policies.

Well in hindsight I think any car could do it on softs, 20 minutes on softs is not a big ask w/o the tyre wear multiplied as well IMO.

Btw, have you seen GzeroD's post in the other thread?  I think he points to the cause of the fuel fill, and the potential simple fix (and if I read it right, it's in the car file?)

For sure, I’m in Sydney. Where do they have to go?
Sent you a pm

Just set the fuel multiplier to one or off and have compulsory pitstops for tyres only.

Screw that, Kcender ran soft soft soft anyway so just leave pitstops out of the equation altogether.

That's actually a great idea...just take fuel out of the equation by reducing the multiplier. We just change tyres and it's all good :-)
Btw I ran all 3 stints on soft's as well. Had a very tidy race...no accidents and got lapped.

The fuel multiplier is 1.5x.

Everyone has to do two stops.

OK, I've made the fuel multiplier 1.5x. I like the fuel multiplier, as opposed to just leaving it 1x, as it mixes up the pit windows that each car has, so you don't get everyone pitting at the same time, and also gives the more economical but harder to drive cars more pitstop flexibility.
