Were you running any rear wing freezer? It seemed you were a bit quicker in the corners but I pulled away a bit on the straights.
Just default wing (whatever that was).  I was trying to get on the gas early out of the turns though!

Default was 1 I was on 0. I was just making sure I placed it on the apex and focused on exits. Was definitely faster in the last race.

Good night for me. First few laps of race 1 were intense trying to find a way past Wally and also trying to hold freezer off. Think freezer got by then I was able to thread my way past them both in the last turn. I then caught up with killa and bueller and got my them then held freezer off till the end.

Race 2 and  3 were very similar getting away well and holding freezer off but was good pressure and I had to concentrate hard not to make a mistake.

Welcome to the BMW brotherhood Phil  ;D I expect nothing less than a win from you!

Last night he said he'd just stick with the Mustang as it would make no difference to his end result  ;D

Well I guess my round 1 mishaps helped as I can just afford the Fiat.. mwhahahahaha

has anyone tried F1 TV. Is it the full sky sport coverage and commentary?
Didn't think it was available in Australia?

It let me chose Australia when I went on the website and gave me aus pricing. Was just curious what coverage it uses.

Edit.. You're right when choosing Aus you're just paying for live timing and old coverage

I'm loving the Nissan to be honest don't see any reason to change unless I can't keep up.

My night was much better than last week blowing the engine in 2 of the 3 races... Race 1 holding Wally off for a few laps until his battle with Phil where I could pull ahead. Race 2 Wally much more confident on cold tyres and passed me and that was that, then Phil got me eventually. Race 3 much the same as race 2 with Wally already ahead and a few laps of good pressure from Russ.

This place is like 5 mins from my house, so I'd always be planning on going but wasn't in a rush, but it recently got shut down due to a dispute with the ATO so I'll never get the chance... All their cars are being auctioned off next month.

I think a few of us are going to catch up on the Friday evening at Taco Bill on Clarendon St just down the road from gate 3, AB156 has enticed us with  "horrible tex-mex and cheap frozen margaritas"   ;D ;D ;D :P :P :P :P 8) 8) 8) 8)

then next morning this is how we will all feel   :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :o :o :o :o :o :( :( :( :( :( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
Ahhh, the Margarita's, you gotta come for the Margarita's  :o :o - oh, and the hot sauce of course  ;D ;D

Ah wish I was coming. I haven't been since 2010 as my first daughter was born on the 18th so her birthday weekend is always that weekend.... One day I'll just bring her with me  ;D

Trying to figure out what size monitor to look at for desktop sim racing.  Is 55 too big?  Is a big TV a decent alternative to triple monitors?

I used to use a 48" tv before I went to triples. It's okay provided there isnt much input lag but a tv is unlikely to have the same response rate as a monitor. Triples is a completely different experience though.

Agreed I watched the first 3 episodes last night and will watch a few more later

I surprised myself by getting pole, but thankfully that set up my night. I didn't have any of the fastest laps, but was able to be the most consistent in every race, just putting in clean, fast laps that saw me not really challenged expect for some pressure from Phil's Mustang in race 2.

Nice work Wally. Start position seems key here as it was pretty hard going to makes passes.

Checked the replay and I definitely went from 2nd to 1st and blew the engine on that last race. I'm 98% sure I put it in 3rd both times, so like Phil said I'll have to try and re-calibrate the h-shifter. Annoying though as had good pace this week.

No idea how you can do 1:45's with the Z4 or the Nissan...I'm doing 1:48's. Nissan drives nice (but slow with me behind the steering wheel), the Z4 has bad oversteering at entries...and the Mustang just wants to go straight  ;)
Doesn't look good for me.
Set up wise in the Nissan, I've gone full negative camber and no rear wing.

Did exactly the same. Also TC off. Did a few laps tonight it's a fun car to drive here.

There's no line between brave and stupid, they're synonymous.
It's only the outcome/luck that decides which term you use. 8)

Tag line for the season right there  ;D
