No idea how you can do 1:45's with the Z4 or the Nissan...I'm doing 1:48's. Nissan drives nice (but slow with me behind the steering wheel), the Z4 has bad oversteering at entries...and the Mustang just wants to go straight  ;)
Doesn't look good for me.
Set up wise in the Nissan, I've gone full negative camber and no rear wing.
In my Nissan I have a lot of negative tow and no rear wing!

Did exactly the same. Also TC off. Did a few laps tonight it's a fun car to drive here.

Cheers Wally, that was good advice. Still slow compared to server times, but it got me 1.8s after a few laps.

Cheers Freezer and Joe. I changed from the Mustang back to the Nissan and will try that tonight. My PB is at 1:46.7 so I got to find some more time...

I'll be out again Wally.

The PC clock was resetting every time I started the PC so I thought that's an easy fix, I'll just replace the CMOS battery. Now the PC won't boot at all, just stalls at the Windows Logo.

I didn't realize when I got into SIM racing that they also simulated the frustration of real racing!! Bah!

Unfortunately you are simulating the ups and downs!

Checked the replay and I definitely went from 2nd to 1st and blew the engine on that last race. I'm 98% sure I put it in 3rd both times, so like Phil said I'll have to try and re-calibrate the h-shifter. Annoying though as had good pace this week.

Thanks Guys, fun night with some tight racing. Only a roll on the second race start was a bit annoying, but that's racing.

I had the same issue in practice earlier in the week using the bodnar adaptor with the G27 shifter. Did a fresh calibration and no issues tonight. Not with the shifter anyway

I surprised myself by getting pole, but thankfully that set up my night. I didn't have any of the fastest laps, but was able to be the most consistent in every race, just putting in clean, fast laps that saw me not really challenged expect for some pressure from Phil's Mustang in race 2.

Nice work Wally. Start position seems key here as it was pretty hard going to makes passes.

Oops, I'm sorry for the no show, I've completely messed up the days.  They seem to blur together lately, a bit. :/

I thought you might have had a brain fade :)
