Oooh Road America. Haven't driven there since Forza days on the xbox but always enjoyed it.

Bah, wish I had my rig for this.  Love the Exos.

Bah was hoping when i sae u posted here it was to say you were in

Won't make tonight. Have fun  8)

That was the most enjoyable race I had in the BMW but still not a fan of the car. Qualified 2nd or 3rd but spun off on lap 2 reentering somewhere around 8th. Managed to keep in clean and consistent after that to take 2nd. I must have undercut some people as I don't remember making too many passes.

Personally I much preferred the 49. I hadn't driven either before the night and didn't do a complete qually lap in either but by the race I still had good fun. I was a little harsh on the gearbox in the 49 using the gears to slow me down and not really blipping as much as I needed to. Had a good fun few laps with Wally and Phil getting past Wally a couple of times but then missing gears and letting him by again. I seemed to have more pace on the downhill section at the start as it's fun getting it loose down there. Eventually the gear box had enough as was gone with a few laps to go..  ;D

I was having a lot of trouble braking into corners. I always felt very close to sliding off the track and was struggling to find a good brake modulation.

Maybe you could do with some new pedals?
Cruel Joe, very cruel :)
But it will help. My current brake pedal just has a linear resistance and its very hard to apply progressive brake pressure.

Ya gotta laugh at this kinda thing, I do stuff like that all the time....

Yeah you will love it! Initially I thought mine were 'broken' as it feels so different and struggled for a few days but now there's no way I'd go back.

After driving the skippy the other night I think it would make a good Thursday car, or always happy to do another Cobra season! I may have been a flappy paddle only driver back when I last did a Cobra season so would be good to do another season and drive it properly!

Next race I may/may not make it as I am about to become a new dad next week. Hopefully I've acquired enough points to hold out, even for just one race out of two.

Congrats. I ended with with an unwanted 8 month break when I had my 3rd. I tried to keep going but I could never finish a race so had to call it for a while.

I have just been reading my way through all the post of this thread and I think it's a great idea, something I'd love to be a part of now that I think I have my screaming headset problem sorted. The idea of endurance racing in GT cars with a decent level of damage is great as it forces people to drive for the conditions and their place in the race, which makes it more realistic. The one thing I couldn't find was when such an event might be run....

You're a day late dude  :o

Loving the skippy Seanus. Just did a few races with Phil, Gratulin and Bruce. Lots of fun to be had!

Many people running this tonight? I was gonna do Nords just because it's Tuesday and I have nothing else to do (my other addiction is an MMORPG android game where servers have maintenance on Tuesdays), but I've done no practice so can see it getting boring hotlapping and crashing on my own. This seems more fun.

EDIT: How are we gonna deal with TeamSpeak? Can you create two rooms?

I'll take the GT-R Wally if I make it. It's the only car i've driven there so far and still not a valid lap yet  :o
