pretty mega race had kcender and jeremy at the start all over my ass for the whole race pretty much lol, was interesting the cars were very different i ran low aero and kcender must of had high because he was all over me in the turns but i managed to hold him off down the straight, had a lot of good side by side stuff, felt bad when he went off down the fast left hander after the long straight, i was on the inside of the turn so had to brake earlier than normal to get the car stable on the tighter line and i think that caught kcender out. But he came back and then the last lap we had a good run again right down to the last turn, i got a little tap that sent me sideways on the exit so kcender got a small run on me and we were looking to go side by side, but somehow came together over the bump entering the gp circuit, i assume his car skipped out over it as we were fairly close, mine stayed straight i felt, i was trying to squeeze him to the wall so he would go the long way around lol but not to be would have been a photo finish.

Best race I can remember having - I was literally having to look between your wing and the top wishbones to see the corners I was that far under you gearbox for most of the race :P awesome race. I have 7f 5r wings in an attempt to minimise scrub and save the tires but it meant if i wasnt under your rear wing under the gantry onto the straight then you would get about 10 car lengths on me.

The rest of the race makes up for the last 50 metres - lets just blame the Germans for building the pit wall there :P

If anyone has a replay i can steal for viewing pleasure and personal James Hunt make believe sessions that would also be magic :)

Haha yeah i believe it good effort, you were damn close for most the laps! I had 4f 3r i knew from past experience around nords that hp is king as passing here can be hard unless you get a good run down the straights. Was a bit sketchy on the tyres and the last few laps there wasnt much left in the tyre with all the low aero sliding but i knew if i kept it clean in the turns and not missed any gears i should be ok but it was bloody hard especially when im watching the mirrors most the time lol

heres my brab set for those interested, seems nice around nords

car was a nugget, something happened at the start i think i tagged someone next to me who got a good start as i was moving to dodge the slow starting car in front, got damage car was horrendous so put it in the wall where it belongs.

never really go well in these style cars lol, felt i had the car setup well though was nice to drive just wasnt quick enough, minded my own business in the race while jeremy battled phil, by the end of my first stint i was able to catch jeremy and i knew he would pit lap 27 so i decided to undercut and pit lap 26 which worked hehe. Ran home 2nd but had really bad ping for some reason on the last few lap luckily nobody was around but it may have been a youtube vid dad was watching who knows.

6
we go brabham

7
Yeah phil its one of those cars where the setup is endless so heaps of time to be found i reckon

As i said sometimes less is more just focus on making the exit neat, the pace you gain from a good corner exit extends to the whole straight. Also wally on the corner cut app i havent had the amount of cuts i have done or the green red light for a long time now lol

9
Yeah i had no issues with cut tracks even in qually whrere i threw caution to the wind, to be honest if your getting cut tracks at imola on the exits your driving the track wrong. Imola you have to be very technically correct it rewards the slow in fast out style, the more you attack it the slower you go and your exits will be super tight and you will prob trigger a cut track on the astro turf. For instance the chicanes in s1 i just drop it in nice and smooth for the first half of the chicane hugging the inside so the 2nd phase is nice and straight and i can get on the power early and have plenty of room on the exits, the moment your exit feels cramped you have over cooked it.

Phil i probs have too much wing, need to meet somewhere in the middle

That's the set I ran was great in qual.

11
pretty sure my set is close to stock, ill post it soon. I think i had too much wing i noticed i had a lot of people close in on me on the straights unless it was the fuel load.

Daniel was my cousin, invited him to have a go :)

I tried doing the 1 stop on meds and it flopped haha i didnt do any heavy load laps in prac so when i decided to make the car 130kg heavier for the race it was a basket case and caught me out, the car on full fuel was very understeery and bottomed out a bit so defs need to change the set for the race. The potential is there for it to be done but your way slower than everyone around you and you really have to be on the ball with the car as it changes characteristics in the stint but if you drove it right and kept it in the 21's it may work, daniel was going ok with it but he had less fuel than me in the first stint, he was going for a 1 stop but didnt know how to pit lol. If the tyre wear was less it could be interesting otherwise it is very hard towards the end of the stint when all the tyres are red lol, i should try hards maybe they will work better if there not too much slower.

trophy is getting fairly big now lol

race 1 q was harder than it needed to be, i had a 3 sec lead to kcender but then a lapped car thought i was racing them and blocked me for 2 laps so my lead was gone and i then had to battle off kcender for the lead until he out braked himself and sent us spinning lol..

Race 2 was impossible i had so much stuttering for some reason, i dont think it would of effected people behind me so i battled on with it and was able to hold pace, went off at t2 as it was so bad i couldnt see my brake marker so kcender got me but i was determined to keep fighting no idea how i kept it on the road half the time, my pc timed all the stutters perfectly for when i was either entering a quick turn or side by side with kcender lol anyway was still fun, had a run on kcender on the last lap but going under the bridge it stuttered again and i braked super late because of it and went way off into the outfield and somehow got a cut track and a 10 sec pen lol...

Qual was decent, happy with the lap

Race was interesting lol, kcender got the run on me on the exit of t1 and got the lead and i settled in behind him trying to get a groove for the race but then grat caught me and i got involved in the most intense bumper on bumper, door on door battle ever lol i know i had a lag issue a few races a go but that was due to my sister jumping on netflix and i could clearly see the effects when she jumped on my ping would go to 300 and people would fly everywhere but she has since been banned from it so that isnt a issue anymore, the slow warp is a thing i have seen in ac for a while where cars would slightly float on a straight and its not just me i have seen vids etc so thats something i have always accounted for when racing online in ac and it hasnt bothered me much, my ping was always in the teens last night, to be honest though a lot of the contacts i got i felt was from grat being a tad aggressive and were avoidable lag or no lag wouldnt have made a difference, such as the initial hit in the rear at the top of the hill coming into the fast left no idea how i managed to keep it on the road lol, one hit put me in the wall and after that my car was rooted it had so much understeer and not much top end speed so a lot of the slowing down going up the hill which is normally flat out i was slowing down to negotiate it which could be seen as warping. It was a cool scrap though after surviving it lol and by the end pretty much from being put in the wall on i made it my mission to keep grat behind me for a brutal cship battle ;P

Race 2: I was just keen to not be in a belted car which didnt last long as grat had a moment going into the final set of turns being a bit ambitious on the cold tyre and sent me into the in field and straight into phils door sadly but i was happy to see he survived but im sure his car would have been shit, mine had bent steering and was a bit slow down the straights again so i had to limp it home but still had good pace sticking behind bueler before he went off and then wally but i couldnt do anything about him and it wasnt really worth it since grat dnf

You cant fight me that hard grat to then just quit come the last round lol
