Wasn't that keen on these cars to begin with but warmed up to them from bikernike track onward so the season was pretty good all in all. I do however prefer (any) race cars over road cars, particularly one's with diff/trans whine and a whole lot of snap crackle and pop from the engine/exhaust, even the cars with squeaks inside the cab (don't think it's the actual suspension, is it?). Anyways..
R1 bumped into Russ near turn 1? but was because I had someone else right onto me as well, sorry. Ran most of the race behind ab156 was a lot of fun we only traded places when we made a mistake. I also let bacchulum go by when I spun toward the end of the race.
R2 tee-boned Russ when he'd spun (sorry again) In the middle of the pack had nowhere to go. The rest of the race was kinda lonely.
R3 tee-boned Freezer when he'd spun (sorry) similar situation but not sure which way to go. Tailing Wally for most of this race and really didn't think I'd get chance to pass but finally got a good run out of the last turn which set up a draft and clean move up the inside of turn 1, bad luck on the spin after that Wally. Also a little distracted by Daveo's open mic for most of this race, is there a way to use push to talk?
As always great racing with you guys despite the incidents, thanks again for the great fun.

Many thanks to Wally for putting in the hard work that's required to make the season happen.

Great racing tonight for those that I battled with and my apologies to Freezer for the Race 3 lap 1 incident that you got caught up in.

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.

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.

That was not much fun.

Race 1: Tried to avoid someone else's accident and didn't.

Race 2: Tried to avoid someone else's accident and didn't.

Race 3: Avoided all others accidents by spinning off the track at least three times myself. I don't know what happened but the car was awful so it's possible I forgot to load my setup.

Good season though, thanks blokes.
