This track seems very demanding for my rig... I'm basically at 75/80fps. I hope it won't create issues at the start, with many cars around. For the rest, it is annoying but drivable.

As for the cars: I think I'll go with the long tail. It does not seem to have front wheels (maybe a small one? Like a plane?) and drives very ugly, but at least it goes when it's straight. I really wish I knew how to set it up. Short tail is magnificent, but too slow and I am scared of being in traffic after a pit stop.


Will confirm on other thread tonight.

Only get 11 laps out of a full tank in the Short Tail ... either a 3 stopper or fuel saving and go even slower.

We are five laps short, so that will be a huge amount of fuel saving to get 2 stops!!

Hmmm I tried to figure it out at a 2 stopper. How many laps are you assuming? Kcender won't be doing that soft tyre pace the whole race. I may yet have to drop the fuel multiplier, but then we'll be getting into territory where the merc & Mazda become 1 stoppers. I may have to look at shortening this race so the short tail can do it in 2 stops. Will keep you posted.

OK, Daytona is a tricky track to balance fuel because of it's high speed, and the cars have very different fuel economies. The other two-stop races are easier to work out as 2 stoppers.

What I'm going to have to do here is make the fuel multiplier 1.8x, and make a rule that everybody has to pit twice (as some cars will be able to do it in 1 stop). You have to do something in the stop - add some fuel, change tyres, or both.

Shorties are doing 9L/lap on a 99 litre tank (11 laps).  Estimating 38 laps race.

Yeah, sorry about the late change - I didn't want anyone to have to do 3 stops, of course.

How long is the race? 60 mins?

I just did a 25 min stint in the Mazda, medium tyres weren't up me much somewhere between 20 and 25 mins.

Yep, 60 min + 1 lap.

It could be a very interesting  race if it makes 38 laps as predicted as I’ve found tonight the long tail is going to only make 34 laps with 2 stops and that’s using 70% boost

Even with the revised fuel multiplier of 1.8x???

I made 17 laps on a tank. So 1 stop should give you 34 laps, a 2 stopper adds another 17 laps to give a maximum 51 laps. Off course any Turbo use or damage may change the usage.
