Ovals Ovals, no right turn Clyde.
« on: September 13, 2019, 01:10:23 AM »
We have at least one member who would love to do an Oval season.
So what do others think?

We have many suitable cars and ovals.

Perhaps cars that ran ovals and road courses.

I've also been in the 'can only turn left' 'must be boring' way of thinking but when you have a red hot go at it it REALLY has its charms.

Turning left only, really is stupid but it doesn't alter the fact that some bloody good racing can be had doing so.
The answer: -80538738812075974³ + 80435758145817515³ + 12602123297335631³ = 42

We have had some good fun runs with ovals, I would like to mix up the cars we use with some standard vehicles eg. F1 1500 mod and others that can cope with the "turn left" racing.

Thinking out loud. A short season in the Buicks, but I first need to liaise with Bacchulum to get the physics sorted.

And there are two Event mods in that lot above. That is a carset with matching track representing a single event in history.

'Race of Two Worlds' & 'Indy '52'
We should do one of each sometime.

Since any disparity in car performance has a larger effect in oval racing that circuit racing I would suggest going a single make route.

Just been trying to tune my 900hp Sprintcar, and for the life of me couldn't get rid of, on throttle understeer. Turns out not enough droop at the front, the thing was wheelying out of the corners!!
