Good racing, I found that the more restrictor I had the easier it was to lap in the 1:38's, although the other cars were faster in a straight line, I found that I could get the power down easier out of corners where I was struggling beforehand. So I recommend anyone who finds it a bit difficult to drive try it with maybe 20-40% restrictor and see how it goes. If more people went with that I'd go with a bit more myself, not sure I'm ready for ballast though lol

Good fun racing here. The car was feeling nice again here. I just made some damper tweaks to make the final corner a little more comfortable.

Think I'd missed the last two Thursday races so took a little longer to get used to the car again but so much fun when you do. Was thinking of bruce during the race as remember he took a win at gentrack not that long ago.

Drive a few laps of Longford before you wish for more restrictor. ;)
Sure, it still helps getting the power down but you lose all that, and more, down the very long straights. :-X

Good point, didn't think about the difference of tracks, also, it kinda takes the fun out of driving these beasts. Maybe a small amount of ballast without restriction?

You can also add a bit more fuel for the same effect although it may not make them easier to drive as the restriction does.

I did a quick offline test without restrictions/ballast and managed a 2:28 (I think), about the same as roo.
