Yeah, never ever done a single lap on a wet track.

32
Done a few laps last night. It's a fantastic track...great fun.

33
Would never have thought I can do so many laps without properly wrecking the car.
I've made quite a few changes to the setup of my new wheel base just recently and based on the result of my last two qualies it seems it's paying off. I found it strange that the change a few month ago has made me less competitive for the last couple of seasons. Hopefully that's not just a one off thing.
I was trying to crack Kcender's time on the practise server, was well in the 4:08, but screwed it in the last hairpin...going through there in 2nd gear is not a good idea.
Was probably a bit nervous there at the front, but managed to keep Freezer and Keith behind me. Keith, that thing was close...was lucky...would have been a pity if that had ended my/our race. I didn't see an opportunity for you there. Well, we both got away with it...
The strategy without pitting worked well. Was pure luck as I never have managed to do more than 4 consecutive laps.

Joe, at the time of the contact we were going pretty much the same speed. I estimated your nose to be behind my rear wheel, maybe even entirely behind me. Of course I was trying to position myself as far right as possible for this turn so I moved very slowly right, closer to you. However, I misjudged it, thought you would still have enough space...it was a very slight contact, but it completely f** it up for me.

That's interesting as for me, and even in my replay we were fully along side each other. Are you running helicorsa? Pretty sure helicorsa showed us fully alongside too so maybe some lag somewhere. I was lucky to get away with it. Sorry it ended your race dude.

That's really interesting. Based on what I see in my replay you're definitely not alongside me...my rear wheel touched your front wheel (again, I actually thought you were further back) and you did have a bit more space to your right as well - pretty much half a car width worth of bitumen...and looking really closely it seems you were moving a bit towards me before the contact. I've got 2 screenshots showing it perfectly, but don't know how to insert them here. If you were alongside me I would have seen you as I've got about 160deg FOV.
Well, maybe I've got a bit more luck next time...getting more relaxed about these things...just shut the c** down and do something else.

Good night again for me. I'm sure this luck will run out soon  ;D

Race 1 started 3rd but Bacculum had an awesome start up the side of me. Tried to box him in as he had Phil moving slower infront but didn't work. A couple of laps in got caught out with Bacculum braking earlier than I expected taking me off line and wide onto the grass but luckily only lost one place to killa. Several laps then chasing down killa until I got a good run out of the final turn and got side by side down the straight. I was over to the right of the track and killa suddenly veered into me putting me in the wall, but I escaped with just a broken windscreen and red front. Killa quit after that; not sure how you saw that one killa, but I double checked the replay and still looked how I thought it was. Was down about a second a lap with the damage but had a bit enough gap to ab behind and Bacculum doing his gearbox gifted me 3rd.

Race 2 ab got past at the start and I was able to take the place back a few laps later. I could see kcender ahead but couldn't keep up but he was nice enough to hit a wall and kill his car. ab and Phil seemed to be having a battle behind allowing to get a bit of a gap which I was able to keep. I backed off on the last few laps with the tyres going off but kept an eye on the distance to Phil taking my 3rd Tuesday win  8)

Qualy went not too bad for me...still, I was >0.5s in the minus on my last lap till I managed to f** it up at the last turn...you're really a champ Killa ;-)

I just figured you can adjust the strength of the FFB effects in AC...believe it or not all 3 FFB effects were on 0% all the time since I started racing on AC...so, well, there's something happening now in my wheel after cranking these numbers up...feel like an idiot.
Don't understand why they are putting them on 0% as per default...doesn't make sense to me.

Joe, at the time of the contact we were going pretty much the same speed. I estimated your nose to be behind my rear wheel, maybe even entirely behind me. Of course I was trying to position myself as far right as possible for this turn so I moved very slowly right, closer to you. However, I misjudged it, thought you would still have enough space...it was a very slight contact, but it completely f** it up for me.

As we were not really going properly side-by-side, but you had the nose just a tad to my side I could have hoped you let me take the ideal line just because it may have ended up in a drama at the exit anyway. Yeah, you didn't, but went for it. Still went a lot better for you than for me.
So the "suddenly veered right" doesn't really sound right to me (watched the replay too), but I would still take the blame for it.

Sorry Wally. Watched the replay and figured it's my fault.
No worries, it was almost borderline as you were up the inside, but with locked up brakes. I could almost have left you some more room. Almost :)

Sorry for my first couple of turn 1's in the first race. I was coming up the inside on the first two laps and overestimated my grip, sliding towards the outside of the corner and baulking whoever was behind me. I learned...

Race 1 was OK, being chased by Rob and Killagorilla only after they had some kind of incident that let me past, but race 2 was appalling. Killa and I had a collision on the final corner which spun me and dropped me back a few places, but the car also felt really different to what it felt like in race 1. It was really loose in the rear and I had too many spins and near spins. I was off the pace as well, so I was way, way back, effectively the last of the people who hadn't pitted. Very boring, lonely hotlapping kind of race with barely a car in sight. Disappointing. It felt like one of my worst races for ages.

Actually (not that I want to start an argument), putting a bit of thought into this I think I jumped the gun a baking the blame. I wasn't dive bombing, but you had a bad exit out the S before and that was an invite I had to take. Then it was us being side by side and because I was off the ideal line I just need a bit more space than you were willing to give me :-) So I believe it was just an unfortunate contact ending up in us going off...bad luck.

It was some fun racing. I find this track really difficult.
Screwed up quali, then Bacchulum tricked me into a jump start...of course I stopped in the pits...even mucking around trying to adjust my position after there wasn't anything coming up indicating what to do...well, finally drove off thinking, wtf are you doing? Idiot ;-)
Then there was some bad driving till I finally got in a sort of rhythm.
R2, the obligatory 4 positions back, but with some luck that race went a lot better...was a challenging car/track combination for me.
Cheers

Sorry mate, I actually like the original Kunos one in black more, it's no 60. Can you get me that one, please?
Thanks

Hi Wally
Can you get me this one here please?

The silver one.

Nice to have a dedicated room!

Yeah happy with that. I'll be working from home some days so need to buy some monitors for work... I suggested to my wife it would make more sense to buy 3 new 27" monitors for rig the use the old ones for work and she didn't seem apposed to the idea  ;D

I've got a dedicated sim room myself...and I'd love to have 3 27inchers. Good luck with getting everything ready for the next season  :)

Well, it doesn't help watching this thing again. I was pissed off because, during the race I thought it was you, Russ, running into me at that sharp right hander before...and then just going off. The second incident was more difficult to judge. I trust Wally's judgement on this enough...so, yeah, what can I say...
In the end being run into twice there within a few laps spoiled it enough for me to hit the exit button.
Hi killa,
Yeah, we both got taken out at the sharp right hander.
I would probably call the one where we went off a racing incident. I just didn't like being handed the blame.

Yeah, you're right...sorry. It was the bloody whole package which got me to react the way I did.

Let's all just try our best to avoid incidents in the first place and have some good racing   :)

I'm glad to hear that Bueller came to like the car. That's a common story, where people aren't that keen on a car to start with, but it grows on them. Keep that in mind for future seasons ;)

My first race was a shocker because I tried a setup experiment, where I made the rear cambers as unoptimal as the front cambers to blanace the car, using the Camber Extravaganza app. I knew you could never get the front cambers to their sweet spot, so I tried to make the rear cambers equally bad to balance front and rear grip from camber. Well, that didn't work. The car was really unstable while cornering and badly prone to snap oversteer, so race 1was just hard work.

I reverted to my Queensland setup for the next races and that was much better. I still spent most of my time towards the rear of the field, but had some really good racing with Bueller pressuring me, and also me chasing AbleArcher who was also under pressure from ab156 but didn't crack. Made it hard work but a lot of good racing.

For Killagorilla, have you watched the replays? I haven't myself, and you may be right or you may be wrong, but my point is to make sure you have at least watched the replays before you make judgements.

Yes, I watched the replay from all perspectives. Jeremy redressed/gave me time to get my car straight again. Russ went just into my side turning me around. Russ, you can have that, I'll go harder next time. During the race I actually thought he went into me a couple of turns before, but that was Jeremy. That was the reason for my comments over the radio...I really do try hard to avoid that. I normally don't say anything in cases when someone runs into me, but I get pissed off if it happens multiple times. I understand they were battling for position behind me and that makes it more difficult...anyway, try to forget this thing

R1: Braking started earlier than expected so I went off in order to avoid chaos.
R2: Jeremy was running into me a bit too often and the second time Russg was taking advantage out of it...we were going side by side, had slight contact being right next to each other and then Russg went into me left rear end which resulted in both of us going off. Instead of redressing he just went off.
I noticed I was a bit too aggressive on Ablearcher after this, which I finally got in trouble with...enough for the night...no fun...will make adjustments to my driving style with when racing Jeremy and Russg.
