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