I'd like to say sorry to Dave, again.
I was worked up too much I think and made a complete mess of a judgement there.
The 2nd race early part was a total dodgem ride for me, I could not see well to the side, I've always tried to live a car width, but after the 1st corner I felt swamped from behind constantly till we were out of there.
After that first few corners it got more relaxed, and had an enjoyable race holding back Steve and trying to catch Mopz with his mini ballast and frequently overshot corners
I stayed in 2nd in the slow corners. It seemed ok.I've used 3rd in quite a few. Eg the last one.
good fun night again. In R1 I was under-ballasted, that's clear, but I had heaps of fun in R2 - early mistake let David G through, then I've latched onto him, and even tried to take the pole back once or twice, great chase until Liam arrived from behind, unfortunately. No big deal, and I've really enjoyed the racing otherwise.
Interesting, I guess each to his own. When I had lots of praccy in the f1600 and have been really fast, I was always sliding into the corners. I do agree on the throttle, though; I was usually coming out of the corners nicely modulating with throttle, nearly never on full, as far as I remember. It has a fairly open diff to lose traction if you floor it too early.
