Umm....seems I have the world record on RSR for the Cobra at Salsburgring (at least an hour or so ago!?). Given that there are only a few posted times I reckon XGN could end up with all the top 10 spots if we each go and spin some laps!

1:38s is the time to beat.......

Sounds like a plan :)

Very enjoyable reading.  I think it leads to revisiting the 289... and just run the S/C 427

Edited.

Got to say, I think we are going to see a lot of crashes in these things.  I recommend people do some serious practice before jumping into them.

I've put a setup in my dropbox.  You can lower the tyre pressures - especially the rears - to make it a bit more stable in the long fast corners but won't turn as well in the slower ones.

Looking forward to these boat races.
Concerned about 20 lap races though. I know I'm incapable of doing 20 laps one after the other at this stage, in any car. ;D

Pleased to hear you are looking forward to the Cobra,  me too!

I understand Dick, I know it is getting close, but I am using the excuse of restricted time :) but I will be reviewing which car we use, the S/C 427 may be more drivable than the early and the kit car.  I also need to do the required laps and make sure that it is practical for these races...

There's the question of fuel tank capacity too.

I think the fuel consumption is a bit dodgy. I'm sure I could put about 5 liters in it and it lasted 'for ever'

I gather the race is still on tonight?

I guess I should download the track and check it out.
