any reason we can't use the lotus 3 eleven and match it with something? or is that going too fast? just trying to put in cars we haven't raced to my knowledge.Yes. Single make races are a whole lot easier
Even on its own I think it's a good car for a single make season.
Have yet to download and try this, but I was impressed with the vette in this that i watched in iracing. Hopefully it's done well.

Sorry Russ but I'm with Freezer on this, your car was not anywhere near far enough up the inside so he had the racing line and you should have given him the room. That's how I see it in motor racing too. Had you been further up his inside by the B pillar then the fault would have been Freezer's.

Bugga diehard, custom track issue by the sounds of it.
I hadn't prepared much for this race then saved my setup in another track folder by accident but didn't know which one DOH.. found something suitable and did some quick changes from memory, didn't expect to do much for the race.. qual 3rd last and just kept behind rexology, settled in and we gave each other pressure all race on and off.. I pitted a lap earlier than rexology and by the time I came around again he was just leaving the pits so i was pressuring him again, finally passed and put in place defensive driving in the corners so he had to go around the outside. LMPs made it hard at times to stay on track but in all a good race. Thanks rex, good close racing.
I still had 2nd gear maxed on the limit just to keep up, guessing my ratio was a little lower than the rest, by the time we got to the line there was a reasonable gap of about 4-5 car lengths.

I still think speed should be limited rather than gear.. 80km max speed, if people can't follow that, they shouldn't be racing.It's not open for discussion - to avoid confusion the rule is clear - stay in 2nd gear.
good then I expect everyone who is in a higher gear than 2nd to be given a first lap penalty ... otherwise those following this rule while the others speed off are at a massive disadvantage by being left behind at start of the race.

What do you think about if Wally sets a spot during warm-up lap, maybe 3/4 or 2/3 where we have to shift down to gear 1 (which probably goes up to 90-100km/h with the GT3's anyway) and get into start formation and strictly adhere to it for the rest of the warm-up lap?
The rule is simple and it's not being followed, doing that will only complicate things further..

I think nominating a top speed rather than 2nd gear would be more specific as to what needs to happen!I think it's easier to stay in 2nd gear. It acts as a natural speed limiter, and you don't have to watch your speed at all. You can just do it by ear and keep your eyes on the cars around you. Experience shows it's not so easy to stick to a nominated speed on a formation lap.
Problem is no one is doing that Wally. I was in 5th trying to catch the gt3s in front on the straight after coming out of the chicane..

After having to miss 2 races I struggled with motivation to practice much and didn't really have the gearing or the setup tuned properly for the track. I kept pressure on Aaron Thomas in the opening laps and tried to get up his inside into the chicane but he kept applying the pressure back.. after about 4 tries I finally got far enough ahead and it almost ended in disaster as he tried to out brake me again on the outside but couldnt pull it up so he spun off and I took the position. I had Joe all over me in the corners, I was determined to be defensive for a few laps at least. His tap didn't unsettle me at all but spun himself off.
I made it to 19th but had a brain fade in the pits to back to 23rd. Made it back up to 20th after passing rob in the closing laps.
Good race by the LMPs, good to see some patience in the chicanes guys.
Not my best track but looking forward to the next 2 races.. congrats to the winners of both classes
