Well done Mael. Sorry for the no show. I forgot right up until the last moment my wife was going out for the evening so I was on sole child watch. While I probably could join the race with the 2 year old in the same room, dodging all the things he throws at me wouldn't make me so competitive.

It's worth a try. We could see what happens if both LMP1 and GT3 leaders don't go any higher than 2nd gear. That may naturally spread the two groups apart. I don't think the start was an issue in any case. The most dangerous thing I saw was a lot of braking and weaving. That puts people at risk of formation lap accidents. How much does that really warm the tyres in AC anyway?
Yes was a lot of weaving in front of me and what looked like some near contacts. I never do as I've not noticed it make any difference, though I have no app for tyre temp or wear as I just go by feel.

I didn't do much practice and didn't do any strategy preparation.... this was a mistake!
I took the safe bet of full race fuel, mediums and mediums again on the stop. I saw Shayne and Killa ahead were on softs to I thought they'd be coming in early for mediums and hopefully it would sort itself out but that was not the case when after 35 mins Shayne was still out, and by that time way into the distance.
The mediums seemed to go off after around 20 mins but get to a point where they didn't get any worse though I was losing time. I stopped after I saw Shayne did and came out 10 second or so behind. In the latter part of the race he and Killa were pulling ahead by a second a lap finishing 20+ seconds ahead.
Spent most of the race with with Phil who was a lap down due to the start incident. Just felt like a bit of a Sunday cruise
The majority of the passing by the LMPs was good. The first time Grat and Kcender passed me was at Village and I had one either side though the turn. Really didn't expect that but saw them coming fast on Helicorsa and adjusted my line to keep to the middle of the track and we all made it thought but seemed unnecessary. Later right at the end was going through maggots and becketts and knew they were behind me but through that fast section I need to keep my line, though Grat jumped down the inside of the right before hanger straight. I had no intention of leaving space there, but saw him just in time and was able to give just enough room for them to both squeeze past. Both incidents could have ended badly but didn't, but from my point of view probably shouldn't have happened.

GL All - I'm out this round - my 7yr old Fanatec Porsche 911 Turbo S wheel died.

I'm not particularly fast in any of them so I'm just going with the one I enjoy driving the most
Did you try the lambo? The Ferrari just wants to spin out constantly and I feel that same as above about the Nismo. The BMW is the easiest to drive but also a little boring as it's almost too easy. The Lambo is a little more lively than the BMW and feels nice to drive.

I'll take this please Wally
Had a quick look at the local jaycar store and looks like everything you need is there, just not the cheapest way to do it. That mini box looks good
I had been looking on the jaycar website too as have one just up the road. What USB board did they have in there? Couldn't find any on the website but their search isn't great.
I was considering building a button box
Hmmm now you've got me looking up parts! I'm a noob at that kind of thing but would love to give it a go.
I found this video where the dude makes a smaller one:
His using one of these boards:
Looking a lot more simple as I'd have to watch the other one quite a few more times to understand that wiring!

Well, prepare for the end of the universe!Nah, easy 3-wide!Did you intend to sign up for this? If you miss a Tuesday event, the universe will implode.
Also going to take this one off. My pedals have been on my dining room table for 2 days and they're a right pain to bolt back down and can't be bothered to do it today. Also meant I'd done no practice for this.

Like bueller I downloaded the track just in time for qually so qually and race 1 was my practice. By race 2 I'd found that groove Mael and Bacc were referring too. Was looking good to win race 3 too but coming down the corkscrew on lap 6 I got a little over confident; I had a good line so have it a little gas through the steep right and spun off onto the gravel. Great fun.
