Tonight!!!.......My goal is.........to beat Bird.       
Beat your own bird you pervert!

Hm...yet another track where the short tail will be schooled on the straight, and no way to take the position back later.  Not complaining, just stating the facts ;)

I've managed a decent low 37 but I'm burning up the rears after a lap or two...:/   
The last bit was always a weak part for me on this layout, I reckon in the proper hands the shorty could do a 36 no probs.  I just can't get the last 3 corners done properly, especially the 3rd last, I keep losing grip there (as usual for me).
You're only 0.15 off of Kcender's C9 time!

Might be time to start adding ballast back to the Shorty!!

...and an extra manadatory pit stop to the c9 to even the pit times out :D

No, I reckon even as it is, it's a penalty that you have to try and get past on the twisties, not comfortably on the straight.  The pit stop & fuel usage is an added burden, still.

Yeah, and if I could drive the bloody thing I'd be ahead... :)

But the diff in top speed....

The 1080Ti does not lack performance that's for sure.  With the 4k screen it works flawlessly whatever I throw at it.  :)

Yeah, it's one of those cars that need a little throttle to turn well & stable.  Give it a bit more and the rear rotates (guess this is the secret to the top times).   Give it yet a little bit more and you go around :)

It was an exciting round, shame about my inability to keep the car on the black bits.   :)

Not that I can drive the Short Tail any better  ::)
I'm sure you can.  I've softened the rear up a bit, just a general softening overall, and it works reasonably well.
Took a bit of work to get into the 21's and I know the track fairly well.    Except I have an ingrown hate for the last corner.  The rest is good.

Sorry  guys I had a non-computer sunday.  :)
The server just needed a kick is all.  Apache got a bit tired or something.

it was all going so well... got new drivers etc installed ran tomb raider benchmark on highest settings and average 80fps which is double what my old system did then boom it turned off. wont turn back on again. light on the mobo come on but wont power up... took my old psu and connected it to the mobo only it tried to boot. new psu plugged back in and nothing.. think the new psu just died after about 30 mins use
Ouch.   My condolences.  Would you share what PSU was it?

It's no small task, do you have your windows key or have it tied to a Microshaft account? New mobo drivers downloaded on usb ready to go (chipset, lan, audio). Looking good

I always forget the drivers.  Luckily we've multiple computers in the house, so it's not that big a deal :)

Then an unplanned divebomb at the last corner almost ended up in tears with light contact with Bird, tried give the position back back suspect another driver took advantage of the situation. Sorry mate.

Yeah that surprised me a bit, but luckily did not leave a lasting mark :)  Nevermind, it's racing.  Chit happens.

All I need is to win the lottery tonight and I'll have 2 of these  ::)
Eh, even if you can afford it, it's just not worth it.   
There's buying something nice & expensive and there's wasting money.  This is the latter.

No takers yet . . . !
Tempting . . . .

Actually; Wally said he'll change from the mazda to the shorty!

Simone, you bastard, you still haven't sent me strawberries, and you're pumping cash into Wally's coffer!
