I'd like to see that :)

The camera that is your 'eyes' can't be off by 10 degrees as it doesn't matter where you put the driver, even facing backwards his 'eyes' are always facing forward.
If you mean the default view seems to be offset to the right a little then adjust that using the 'onboard settings' app.
My steering wheel is out of centre by approx 10deg, but the car is going straight. I never noticed something like that with any other car and I checked if the wheel is centered in the simucube firmware.
So I have to steer (I think) left to go straight.

Make sure all the toe settings are symmetrical in your setup. I once spend a hours fuming over a car not driving straight, reinstalling wheel drivers the lot. Only to realize the setup was the problem.

Haha...yeah, you're right...messed up the toe settings. Congrats on your win tonight - great job.

I was doing alright in race 1, up in 4th, but in the latter stages I had some really loose laps and rapidly lost 4 spots. The worst moment was when I got too close to Freezer and locked up the brakes trying not to hit him, and veered off the track into a barrier. In race 2, I probably should have joined the masses on super softs  :-X

The lap times are interesting in the race results. You can see that a lot of people on SS tyres had their best laps on about lap 14, with the lap times best later in the race, while the softs peaked a bit earlier but stayed more consistent. I definitely felt in both races that on softs, I was getting caught and hassled later in the race.

Had some really good racing there, starting from the back with a focus of looking after the ss tyres and not upsetting anyone I really enjoyed myself, felt like a supercars driver lol. Applying plenty pressure seemed to make a few crack and vice versa but luckily no major spins for me, some side by side with a few too, one good one with DaveO was a stand out. I just used Bacchulums set and didn't worry about any of that either, very good. Thanks guys

Good nights racing for me.  R1 was a nose to tail battle between Wally, myself and Bacchulum which saw me as the hunter, hunted and busiest!
I ran softs and was consistent across the race but I note I was 30 seconds behind winner Mael at the end even though I was 5th.
R2 was time to try the super softs.  I hadn't even noticed these in practice!!  I silly spin on lap 3 saw me drop 4 spots, but it was a good chase back
to 8th, battling most of the second half with Bueller.  Supersofts proved to be around a second a lap quicker for me and I set my quickest lap on L17.

Won't be here next week as going away, so see you at Watkins Glen.

p.s. Well done Mael . . . killed it!

I don't mix well with hairpins...or tight chicanes.

Race 1: I was having fun till I spun coming off a slow corner, then did it again for a few laps and had a stinker.

Race2: I was having fun till I spun coming off a slow corner, then did it again for a few laps....and on the way collected poor Rob after losing it, and had a stinker. I'm very  sorry Rob.  Then I quit after a few more spins. Hopefully I be able to get some more practice before the next round, and can keep it on the track.

Hey Doobs, don't worry about it, I don't take racing too seriously. I usually finish about last anyway, so no big deal.

Stupid mistake at turn one first race resulted in me being by myself almost the whole race.
Strangely enough race two was even more lonely without a mistake. The sharp right-handers, especially the 2nd one, were always borderline losing my rear end.
It's a good track for these cars.

I've added a couple of Nissan setups to my drive (see sig).
maybe one of them might suit. ;)
