Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: Ovals Ovals, no right turn Clyde.

I'm away this week so whatever you do don't start an oval season this week  8)  Really looking forward to doing some left turns. May some right ones as well if we go against the flow!

Thinking out loud. A short season in the Buicks, but I first need to liaise with Bacchulum to get the physics sorted.

And there are two Event mods in that lot above. That is a carset with matching track representing a single event in history.

'Race of Two Worlds' & 'Indy '52'
We should do one of each sometime.

Since any disparity in car performance has a larger effect in oval racing that circuit racing I would suggest going a single make route.

Well I hated them*.  The constant fight to prevent the front tire lockups is irritating. The under-steer on entry were infuriating. The mid-corner under-steer incensed me. The corner exit over-steer was just plain @%$#@$#  And this was on an easy smooth track, imagine on some of the bumpier mods! KCender's advice to lower the rear ride height helped a bit for the last race where a good battle with Davo was fun but overall no, just no.

*Some background: Did a season in them with rooz. Was last in almost every race  :(

Not gonna make tonight.
Suffering pain in a seated position.
That's no good. Get well.

Thought you'd do well in these Bacchulum, Hope to see you back soon

Poor Kcender87, 1.6 seconds faster than the next closest guy. Do you volunteer for some parity ballast, or are you happy racing by yourself?

Aliens have to take the Nissan with 500kg ballast  :P

Thanks for the season Wally

Great driving by my team mate Freezer, on the podium for the championship, 4 wins, 9 podiums and 4  consistency awards! Carried Team Maki to our first championship!!!!

For myself I just could not be consistent, whether that be driver error or technical difficulties. Had the speed, even out-qualified Kcender once in the same car  :P but could not bring the bacon home. Had some very good close battles over the season and fun to figure out the some very different handling cars.

PS. Note Joe had 18 races, no podiums or wins, crashing into his team mate on occasions as well  :P

I use the brakes everywhere,  Nissan feels awful, and not like any car I have driven in real life or in a sim before,  the mighty mighty Hyundai is just to slow here to bother with,  might as well give the trophy to kcender now

Always strange how drivers differ. My gripe with the Nissan is a lack of power, handles perfectly for me.

I was just thinking that there are only 2 corners here where I use the brakes  8)

Remember the good drivers use no brakes for turn 1  ;)

Rather ironic message on the BMW's back window  ;D

Last night, it was 3 wide, not all exactly lined up side by side, cars moving a little bit tot the side...
That's my point Wally.
Car Radar at no point showed any cars beside me, just 2 (side by side) behind, when I had to take my eyes off it to see my turn in point.

Heliocorsa is still the gold standard in my exalt opinion

Don't worry about Joe, we'll just run him into the old pitlane wall if he cheats on that last corner  ;D

If PLP doesn't see it, is it really cheating?  :o

I was just raising it for consistency. I was making sure I was right of the curb apart from one lap where I messed it up but then gained a couple of 10ths. That said, if everyone is doing, why not  8)

Yeah, only pulling your leg, it is a legitimate problem on this track for us and the Supercars IRL  :) 

I'm not so worried if the driver re-enter the track over the curb, the most time can be gained by re-entering the track after the sausage curb ends, you can gain about 1/2 a second from memory. But hopefully not many drivers would take that option since its quite obvious against the track designers intention. And if a driver does it by mistake (Out-braking oneself at that last corner is almost inevitable) then we can only hope the driver would slow down to give the advantage gained back.

If PLP doesn't ping you, go for it. The Supercars often run to the left of that kerb, but I think it's frowned upon.

Don't worry about Joe, we'll just run him into the old pitlane wall if he cheats on that last corner  ;D

BTW how did the ACC enduro go last night Wally?

Mael was too optimistic coming tight into the crowded final chicane, hit the rear corner of Joe and spun him - $1000 penalty.

What? So I get a penalty because Joe forgot to take his handbrake off?   ;D

Overall a terrible night, technical trouble made race 1 a no-show. Race 3 the unfortunate chicane incident together with a late alteration with Freezer meant little points as well.

At least race 2 got some decent points from the back of the grid, added bonus was the racing with AGK.

Yeah, I could drop the Veloster. It's a bit too slow, really.

Weren't that slow in KCENDER's hands.  :o
