I am reluctant to post this, as I think Phil has never before  picked a combo I have not been very happy with. But I find I cannot drive this car and control the "lift off oversteer". We ran this same combo 10/10/19 and had two races with a lot of the entrants unable to finish :'(.

May I suggest we swap to this car

I've actually been having a lot of fun practicing with the little car, quite challenging yes but have figured out to control it. Most challenging is the long straight and coming into that last corner and controlling it at speed. Quickest time I've managed is a mid 1.03.

I find that lifting off a little earlier and not entering the corner too aggressively you can manage to get a fairly controlled slide through the corner.  Better off maintaining a straight line through the apex and leaving the oversteer till the end of the corner .  Although I do agree, it is very challenging to control and not a lot of room for error.  Turn #2 is very challenging, as well as the previously mentioned longer corner coming off the straight at speed.  I'm all for giving it a crack though, should be fun.  Will be interesting to see if anyone gets through a race without losing it hahaha.

The way I control the lift-off oversteer is to not come fully off throttle and overlap the brake/throttle.
It does require left foot braking.

Thanks Scott, the sad part is 18months ago I could drive it as the PTracker result shows I managed a 2nd place. But as you say , no margin for error lol.

I will give it one more try, but I am finding it real challenge, at least I do left foot brake :)

I can change it to the 30hp version or a different abarth or even a different track if you have a suggestion for a short kunos track that would suit the car , I would like to keep it kunos content if possible

LOL AB, but I have been lucky enough to get a few Cooper's schooners in over the last week, from 2 different Kegs that were emptied very quickly :o
