Yep, I hope so... and throw in 1 or 2 pitstops and we will have some interesting strategic decisions to make. Not to mention choice of tyre compounds....

I tried all the cars last night and I love the noise of the C9, however it's lap times just don't seem to reflect the vehicle. The Short Porsche under breaking was sensational, but I don't like beetles so I guess I need some more Mazda practice as I found it was a lot faster than the Merc, but had a lot of understeer. That said i literally ran bog stock setups and simply drove the cars as hard as I could....more homework is required

Apologies Bacchulum, I had originally done my fuel calcs for a 50 min race, not a 60 min race. I have revised the multipliers to:
2.4x for a 2-stopper1.5x for a 1-stopper
I don't see the short tail doing a 2 stopper all season, except in the 1 stopper races. :(
The restrictor has lifted fuel economy around Daytona from 9.11-9.41 litres/lap.
That's 347.8 litres for a 37 lap race (1 safety lap), and that's a long way from a 2 stopper.

So I don't see many takers for the short tail, as it's the slowest and needs an extra stop. :-X

I'll check and adjust fuel multiplier accordingly. I don't want to penalise any car to need more stops than the others.

Further testing shows Sebring and Road Atlanta may not need extra stops, but will need fuel saving.

I'll drop the 2 stop fuel multiplier down to 2.3.
