This combo needs to be driven Speedway style in the corners. I will find and publish here the setup Bacchulum came up with to make it easier to get around this track , turning left, turning left, a low 60 seconds lap is on the money.

Like the song Phil 8).

All good Phil.

This Fun Run would be a lot FUNNER with a big field!!!! If some more Tuesdays guys could manage to race as well that would be great :) :) :)

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to drive a Speedway car now is your chance to find out. With a top speed of close to 300kph these cars are a real delight. They require a bit of practice to get used to the "lift off oversteer" and "power on oversteer" , very gentle use of the "loud pedal" is also needed, but you will soon get the hang of it  8) 8) 8).

Big thankyou to Seanus for making this combo possible.

Afore mentioned setup(s).
Theoretically the Assym should be quicker, as you can achieve higher minimum apex speeds.
But, the Tite set is more stable and gives confidence to push on entry and exit.
So it's horses for courses.

They're for the Kurtis but I think all the cars physics are the same, so it should transfer (I hope, g0d can confirm).


{caveat}
A wise man once said anything before a "but" is bullshit, I set my best time with the Tite set ;)

Am I missing something or do these things really only have 2 gears?

With a rolling start, why would you need more? :P

Because you would burn the clutch out getting it moving  ::) remember it has a top speed of 300kph, so 2 gears is the minimum for such a speed range.

Watch this from 1:30... starting a Corvette from 5th gear. Who needs more than 1 gear? :)

Only on TopGear  :D, but you need and engine with lots of "torques" to achieve this feat , the "offy" engine in the Indy Roadster had very few "torques" but could spin to 9000 rpm  ;D 8)

I woke up this morning (@0430) with Prof. Julius Sumner Miller in my head (alongside a hangover) saying, "Why is it so?". :-\
The only explanation I could think of was exit traction outweighs apex speed.
So I spent the day exploiting that idea and the fruits of my labour is a 63s. 8)
Here's my new, logical. setup:
