S27R3: Modena (Fast) Race Chat
« on: March 12, 2019, 11:31:29 PM »
The next round is at Modena (fast layout), a tighter, twistier track.Track: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/autodromo-di-modena.5346 (note there has been a version 3.2 released; a lot of us probably still have version 3.1).

19 lap races.


The weather will be 11, 15 and 16 degrees.

ok I'll start the conjecture on how any passing would occur on this go-cart track. Dive-bomb into T1?  :P

We raced here before in the Japanese cars, and if I remember correctly, the final turn was a happy hunting ground.

That's going to be the car to beat around here. The Nissan is 1.5 secs behind the Abarth here.

Don't forget to rent a car before tomorrow night. There are still a lot of Nissans in the entrant list, and I can't believe that nearly everyone wants to drive one :)

After trying my other two options (Mustang & BMW) I’ve got to stick with what I know even though I’m many seconds slower than a Fiat....

The Beemer's doing OK(ish) here, in Mael's hands. But yes, I tried the BMW too and it feels very different to the Nissan. Much more sensitive steering, I find.

Last night he said he'd just stick with the Mustang as it would make no difference to his end result  ;D

I'll laugh if there's one Mustang up the front with a whole line of cars queued up behind it, unable to pass.
