will be interesting if the mazdas stand a chance now. russ was so much faster through the corners last week and the only way I could keep ahead was accelerating out of them
Yeah, the Mazdas look a bit slow on the practice times. But then they also have a much quicker pit stop.

I just did a few laps and was doing comparable times to the short tails. This track is a shit load of fun in this car though pushing hard I only manage a few laps before I write the car off  ;D :o

I'm not convinced it's gone. maybe the yellow version but as per Phil's screenshot there is another version of it that's all black.

There is a more basic one that's been out a while. This one is new and supposed to be released tonight I think. If you go on the website now it shows it in the image carousel at the top for $520 but the link doesnt work. I have the standard formula rim at the moment. I'd like this one but not sure I can justify that much.

EDIT: Link works now https://www.fanatec.com/au-en/steering-wheels/clubsport-steering-wheel-f1-2018-aus.html

missing a gear allowing Joe past while scrapping with Freezer

Wondered what happened there. Was a good few laps there with Seanus slowing us up in the corners bunching us up again,.

My qually wasn't as good as it could have been; my son was still up so I was trying to get him settled down before the race started, so I only got one flying lap and even during that he was putting his tablet in my face asking for Batman on youtube...  ;D

After discovering how long fueling took in the Mazda last week I started with a full tank, then set up a strategy to add 25 liters for each stop.

The first part of the race was great fun battling with Phil, Freezer and Russ though somewhere around 20 minutes in I got a little loose and hit a wall giving orange body damage all around. I jumped into the pits, and decided not to fix the damage as I was planning on quick stops. This brought me out with Wally but the damage slowed me a lot more than I realized and I couldn't keep up. Killa was also slowly closing on me. Second stop I reduced the fuel to 15 liters as I could see I had enough, and also fixed the damage. This did take a while and I came out further down than I'd hoped, but some other runners taking longer pitstops later than me allowed me to jump them. After my second stop I was blue flagged so let the car behind by without knowing it was Able who I was racing and the flag was for Matthew behind him. Took a few laps chasing the C9 with it's power on the straights but eventually got by. Finished 8th so not too shabby with the damage fix but could have been better.

I assume it's a ptracker/stracker thing

Good to see we have the same technical explanation  ;D

Wally, I've done a few laps on the server and noticed the validity of them is unknown. You know what may be the reason for that? Grat's the same.

It's a ptracker/stracker thing. I don't think Grat has ever run ptracker, but I do and I've noticed recently my laps are unknown too. Could be a version thing, but my ptracker shows connected so who knows.

I may be able to assist? I travel from the central coast to the CBD every day

Maybe we can add a new rule; if you're being lapped by a C9 (especially kcender), you're allowed to try and take that car out?  ;D

45
but who cares. It's for fun.

Are you the same Grat?  ;D ;D
