Race 1 got lucky on the start and found a big gap between me and the field. This allowed me to manage the tyres crossing the line with almost nothing left. I want my fastest lap Wally!
Fixed. You got the bonus point already.

R1. Wondered how far the medium tyres would get me, found myself in the clear in second so just tried nursing tyres and they only just made it, left rear was gone the others not far behind. No chance of catching Mael.
R2. The big V8 blowing past everyone on the straight, I had the gear ratio set the absolute lowest I could sensibly use and the engine begged me for another gear about 3/4 down. 103 rev limiter. Didn't bother fussing about fuel just filled her up enough for the race, put meds on and gave it all she had. Quickly burned up the meds and pitted for hard early. Hoped maybe an under cut but I watched Joe drive out of the pit and then Phil. Could only try to stay clean and make hards last the long stint so I drifted further back from the leaders.
Had fun rumbling everyone's ear drums with the 351 big block, good racing thanks guys. Won't be in the next race...unfortunately

Oh what a shame....and to think LeMans would have been a very happy hunting ground for you with those big long straights

I did some numbers on the cars based on what AC states and got the following.
Shows the Nissans as the best power and torque to weight, yet in game the BMW
 and XB romp away on the straights.  :o ::)

You'll need to use rear wheel horse power, use CM to recalculate the power curve and the weight. For the given weight add 100kg, this is the driver and 25kg (30l) of fuel. And ignore Torque, for all end users it is utterly meaningless. (and I can back up that statement see here)

e.g.

Falcon XB    403hp  1410kg   --286hp/t
635csi         367hp  1310kg   --280hp/t
Falcon XD    396hp  1457kg   --272hp/t
VH               349hp  1217kg   --287hp/t  second lightest and best p/w ratio of this lot, should kick arse.*
RX7             265hp  1050kg   --252hp/t


*Tyres, gearing aero and all, will see your experience differ.

The answer: -80538738812075974³ + 80435758145817515³ + 12602123297335631³ = 42

Where in CM are you getting those numbers Seanus.  I go into Content, select a car and next to the graph displays BHP Torque etc but different to yours...?

Click the three dots, top right of the graph and recalculate using curve's data only, transmission loss at 0% for power at the wheels as it is the only power that will ever accelerate the car.
Right click the Weight field and recalculate then add 100kg, you'll notice my mods read thus, "706 kg* incl Driver & 25kg Fuel"
The answer: -80538738812075974³ + 80435758145817515³ + 12602123297335631³ = 42

Can't remember if it was the vk or vh I used in the fun run but it went pretty good there

Slightly confused, followed your steps and it changed the numbers a bit but still different to yours.

If you adjusted the Transmission loss to 0% then all I could think is maybe I have the latest update, I did download fresh today.
