And that's still with decent aero, as you need a bit to keep it on the track over the bumps.
And I figured it's got the power to push the drag. 8)

(might see what I can do sober, today)

You have got to be joking ;D ;D ;D   I used to love driving "half charged" I am sure I was quicker than being sober, to have any chance now I have to be completely sober :'( :'( :'(.

I've u/l sets for the M8C H/W, 917/10 & T260 M/W.
Obviously the M8C set is much more refined, as I just LOVE that sweet music. 8)

More info:
I greatly increased front stiffness while reducing the rear, based purely on modern frequency theory. (a bit of a 'periodic' cheat)
I've also used a medium d/f setting, to help with the bumps, and balanced the CofP to around 48% front (technically a bit too forward but seems to work).
To make it more stable I'd add rear wing (not wicker), as the front is a more dramatic change.

So try my set (with a couple of clicks added rear) Gratulin, it might be more pleasurable (but it's still a beast).
I should be able to help make it even more user friendly, with feedback. ;)

I was thinking the same thing, in the Nissan I am 20seconds slower than Bacchulum (and that was hard work), however I will give his setups a try and see if they help. I think there will be a few of us that may struggle to do fast times, but if we are just happy to lap at a comfortable pace , we may have a race within a race. If we could get a big grid it would be great, I would just enjoy "riding mechanic" in the replays, sitting in with a few of the regular Thursday drivers ;D ;D ;D 8).

I just tried Baccus' setups and they are much better. However... I am the same - too slow if I want to stay on the track. I've only done one valid lap!

Having said that. These cars are brilliant fun to drive around the Spa 1966 circuit. They will become my demo cars when friend visit!! I love seeing and hearing their reactions when they put their foot down in these things!!

See what you think of this skin as requested.

Yeah, I know, I've tried. :-[
Thank you very much for the quick response.
Now I'm off to do laps and look at replays of myself. 8)

Should we change to an oval so everyone has enjoyment ? and use this track next week in something more sedate ?
