Hey Bueller, sorry I think that was me. I don't know what I pressed but I was looking at your lap times and a "vote to kick" thing popped up.

Again sorry, hope you can get back on soon!

Nice time grat, got me beat how you can get 283 kph , i can only get 276 or something, If I try lower wing it spins in the fast corners
I took down one notch both front and rear wings (ironically, because I saw you were faster on the straights, hahaha) and I added some front camber because I was understeering mid-corner on the slow infield hairpins. That gave me some hard time on exits, but overall was driveable and I left it as such. BUT I think your times were on mediums... my best time on mediums was 1.47.7, I think. So pretty much the same as you

The race server is a different server, so you'll be alright there. I'll look into the practice server after I set it up for next week.

No worries. One thing I've noticed is that late in the practice session as the sun goes down it becomes blinding in a couple of spots. With all graphics settings at maximum it is completely blinding and you can't see anything at all, which will most likely cause wrecks. I'm all for realism but I've never been completely blinded in a racing game before, usually you can still barely see a marker or two. Soo...I'm not sure if it's because it's a mod track or highest graphics settings, but anyone who doesn't want to get caught out can adjust their settings, not sure which one, either glare quality or crepuscular rays. Turn them off if you don't want to be in or cause a major wreck.

The game time will go from 8 am to 6 pm, so the sun will certainly change, yes, as in real life. The practicesession will probably get stuck on 6 pm for a while, but the race won't.

All good. Only making the suggestion so people don't get to within 15min of the end of the race and then wreck. To finish a 2hr race will be very rewarding, but to wipe out after 1.5hrs will be disappointing.
 Changing those settings still gives you sun glare just not to the point where you can't see anything at all.
