Interesting. ;) The ONLY difference between the RX-3 and Escort is 4 gears, 5cm narrower and 10cm shorter with inertia to match. Pretty cool that the differences can be felt. Though it makes it bloody hard to calculate BOP. :-[
The answer: -80538738812075974³ + 80435758145817515³ + 12602123297335631³ = 42

I recall you mentioned that so found it strange when they all *felt* different.

For example,
Escort steering is lighter for me and seems have have a real ackermanm effect, very noticeable in the 3 slow corners
Getting to power down in T3 in the Alfa is more challenging, car wants kill you in T3 (snap over steer) and transitions to under steers through the fast sweeper at T4
Mazda seemed to lack overall grip requiring trail braking to carry any speed through corners, the others were more point and squirt

Of course, I had been in Bali for 4 days and not slept for 30 odd hours so will probably feel totally different tonight :)

2 races of about 20 mins each, second race reverse grid rolling start with maybe an Enduro thrown in at some point
Qualifying 8.30
Race 1 - 8.45 - 20 minutes
5 minute or so break
Race 2 - 9.10 - 9.15 ish - 20 minutes (reverse grid rolling start)


I am dropping Qualifying down to 8 mins this season,  if this is no good let me know
Okay
Just a little pinprick
There'll be no more, ah
But you may feel a little sick

The hard part with the Mazda is getting a setup you can keep momentum up so it doesn't die in the arse on you

I have just started looking into going to Bali for a week or 2 over winter but have never been before and don't know where to start, any tips or recommendations would be cool. I was going to use somewhere like flight centre, but I don't want to give them money for something I could book myself

I'm not sure I'll be able to make it due to family visiting.

Hey Phil, the latest update has broken windows, I am trying to trouble shoot problem now but looks like I will have to reinstall windows.

I doubt I’ll be done in time for race.

Have fun guys and see you all next week.

Well done AB, some serious pace!

Had an interesting night. Kept on losing the car on the entry into the right hander after the pit straight. Only to realize on the final few laps that I was triggering the pit lane speed limit by going to wide on entry :o
Also well done to some of the newer drivers, some hard but clean battles.

Obviously a good night for me, not sure why.

I was really focused on keeping the car straight so really balancing on the brakes on corner entry.  A change fro 25% to 50% on the coast side of the diff helped a lot for the second race.  Never really got to see if there was a better lap time in it but much more consistent.

Race 1 was uneventful, I was glad to finally get the '13 that I was chasing, I think I need up doing the same lap time twice.

Race.2 was fun.  Wife is away on business, the cat came in and jumped on my lap as we were doing the warmup lap (would normally yell and get "service" :) ) so had to quickly jump out of the seat and lock it out by which time the "green" had been called, In some ways it probably helped as the field had spread out a little by the time I caught up.  Had some good racing helped by Bacchulum having a few bumps along the way.  Had one moment where I lost the rear trying to pass AGK, as I tried to redress there was a mess behind - hope I didn't cause.  Finally chased down Phil with 1 lap to go, didn't think I was going to get there a his lap times were falling in the last 1/3 of the race.

Off to Sundown, a place I know well. Racing will be intense there.... better get that rear end stable.
