yeah, fast of you have the time or inclination to practice in these, I have neither, its can be a fun car but to be honest its all a bit toxic lately and no fun anymore

Lol I wonder why you think its toxic, surely nothing you post?
 
Maybe take that chill pill and stop with these types of posts unless your aim is to make things toxic in which case your doing well.

OK, to maintain a civil and fun atmosphere here, I'll be deleting anything toxic.

Eat it watching the v8's

You can also just check what lame attempt Phil makes in his sig next at trying to "not" be toxic. Just amazed someone that has so many issues with something and does their best to encourage said issues. Maybe to see the other face some may need to look in the mirror.  ;)

Thanks. It's gotta be the boost. Off the line I control revs and also use clutch to control the launch but I am occasionally snapping sideways after I change to 2nd. So reducing boost will make that more manageable. Now to map the boost buttons to the steering wheel...

Its a car you do really need to map buttons for boost up and down, race start full boost will just give more wheel spin so best avoided and finding a boost level your comfortable with off the line should help.

During the race you will want to manage the engine more then anything, they used to change engines for each session in these and even ran 2 engines in qualifying. Bringing it back in new condition means you havent pushed it enough but in a longer race you need to save boost up for when needed and maybe force those your chasing to use more then they want to give you the edge at the end of the race.

This sort of racing adds a bit to it and in the LMP1 cars its similar but there you just get more boos every time you brake or next lap, here you get 1 engine and need to make it last to the end. 100% can do 2 flying laps but do that in the race you will have nothing left for the rest of it and be a sitting duck to anyone that catches up so it makes for some fun strategy.

Given the closeness of the Exos in the poll, I'll make the second race an Exos race instead of a 98T race. It doesn't matter if you're unprepared, it's just to give people a taste if they are actually going to like to race this car.


So race 1 - 98T. Race 2 - Exos.

Should maybe throw in the 72 as it looks dead in the water but if people find they don't like either of these it could be a runaway poll winner, at least we already had a season in that so not likely needing a fun run in it.  ;)

The 72 is a write off!

I think the exos was on much the same votes last week the exos was a bit behind the 49 and 25, people change votes more often then they change their jocks I think.  ;D

Server's up, with the 98T for race 1.
I didn't add any wind for these races.
