Here we are at the final (terrifying) round of the season - a 28 lap enduro at Bathurst (link (http://www.mediafire.com/file/23kcw9bzhxm9v53/bathurst_fm7.zip/file)). A pit stop will be required. Tears will be shed.

The race will run at 6x time, in-game from 11 am to 5 pm. I'll restart the server prior to qualy, to set the time back to 11 am.

Weather is 23 degrees and slightly windy.

Hi Guys, is there any way to fix the AI its way slow. I think Kcender87 should win 100kg for that effort. ::)

Wasn't it Kcender who suggested this version?
Do you think maybe he's done a few laps in this combo before? ???

Here's a numbers driven Holden setup as an option.
I haven't had time to get comfortable in the car as it is very different from the Ford.
There should be more time than what I did.

2031 setup attached if anyone wants a crack (maybe drop rear ride height by 1mm if its a bit lively over the top - all the time is over the top - gotta be scraping them mirrors - lots of time on the way down too - gotta be hard flat out the dipper till the elbow and be coming over skyline flat in 4th before braking just at the crest - heaps of run off everywhere so ts super relaxing ... :S

I think your suspicions may be correct.
I think for me, speed won't be the issue, survival will. There are several walls that my car has a magnetic attraction to. How on earth do the real boys rub their mirrors on the walls lap after lap?

I also had that suspicion. I did a few laps last night and think I could squeeze a bit more out of the top section though survival will def be key. I've destroyed the car at last double the amount of laps completed.

weird, I have checked other tracks and all fine and the Thursday server and get around 150fps and smooth,  at this track I am getting around 60 and lots of skips and tearing,   It must be the game telling me to skip this round and play Red Dead :)   I will see how it is with other cars on the track first

Just crash and wreck your car on lap 1 like the rest of us.

Where did you finish last night Wally? Though we XGN guys did quite a good showing until my untimely technical problem.

Going to be a tough night, can only take one touch of the wall to turn your car into a shopping trolley!!

WOW!  First race in months and first race i have finished in one piece!!  I had fun!! Not a big action or satisfying passes,but the performance was noice and the handling of the car was semi decent. I rubbed the mirrors a couples of times  on those walls but not much  damage. Happy to see the XGN ppl still around and about.
Well..........i hope we will get some rain in the near future as i got little water left for irrigation.On sunday i went for a ride with friends around Mount Glorious, Esk,somerset dam,Kilcoy i enjoyed riding my motorbike but i also saw the devastation of this drought,,,,extremely disturbing. I can only imagine the pain of loosing your property ,your house and lives.
On the happy note i got finally NBN installed at home...WOW.....WOW!!!  BIG difference from 1.5 mbps

Good work slowing me down Simone!  ;D Good driving though felt like an eternity trying to get past you

Yea Joe!!Actually it was fun trying to defend my position but in the end you passed me in a fashioned way...good stuff!!!

I had a bit of a dodgy start inside Jeremy's car, so I didn't move until Jeremy got going. I had a reasonably uneventful and lonely race, although I did get to say hello to Captain Slow a few times as he and I made mistakes. I had one big accident coming down from the dipper where I pinballed off the walls a few times and ended up at right angles across the track.

I enjoyed the cars. They felt good to drive.

Despite expecting to crash I actually didn't last night!!  I did have a few light brushes of the walls though.
I do like enduro races as I think I drive a bit smoother by not trying to set quick times each lap . . . takes the pressure off!
I was chased by Phil, Able and Jeremy.  Phil and Able had incidents so I kept ahead.  Jeremy did get past but had an incident
which saw me back in front which I just held until the end getting home 3 spots up in 4th.
I did have a few technical issues this season but the cars where definately good to drive.
Well done to team mate Mael who had good speed bringing it home 3rd for the season!!

Bit tougher for me. A poor quali session meant I ended up behind the Simone Train which waaayyytoo a long time to clear. Can only assume Jeremy was carrying damage from the weird start.. Once freed I had decent pace, so much so that I expected to exit the pits ahead of Phil and Joe. Unfortunately a poor entry lap culminating with a 360 on pit entry put an end to any hope of a good result  :'(  A tough battle with the walls was had till the end of the race, only finishing behind Joe because he skipped the chicane over the mountain.

Still happy with 3rd for the season and  more race wins than Joe  :P 

Apologies (sort of) to KCender, I thought it was the last lap and just did not want to be lapped, but hopefully it provided some entertainment for you! Great driving.

Bahaha. It wasn't intentional I was facing the wrong way on the track just before that. I spun myself around and rears were hot. I saw a blue flag, but my look behind bind was gone and I knew you were close behind too so I was trying to get going and get out of the way for the blue flag at the same time.

My night was a mix. Qualified 3rd and took 2nd off the line so was looking all good until I spun around in the top section after a couple of laps. Lost of lot of places and ended up behind Simone for what seemed like forever. Had a few touches on the wall, then that final spin on the last lap that Mael is crying over.

Still good to come 2nd in the season (which would have happened even if you did pass me Mael  ::) :'() though. I enjoyed the cars a lot. And beating Mael.
