S5R7: Lotus Exos 125 at Mugello
« on: February 24, 2015, 10:51:46 PM »
Last round of the season. I may yet adjust race 2 length depending on the fuel consumption at 2x. The tyre wear rate for race 2 is 3x (Mugello wears the tyres harder than Spa, where we ran 4x).

I've done a few laps...it's tough.  You need to avoid those bloody curbs, or else.

I've modified Aleph0 racing's great setup with a bit more downforce, some ride height (it was badly bottoming out up the hill) a bit of camber adjustment & some gearing change - which incidentally may be off a bit, as I have completely forgotten about the DRS :)

So anyhoo, here's the set it's fairly stable yet fairly fast I feel.  Not alien fast, mind you. 1:34 flat, so far. 
A word of warning; be careful with the wings, you mess up the balance and you're done.

I won't be able to make it so you guys have fun.  This is one of my favourite circuits,  especially in a car with great cornering ability.

Dont choke Stan!  "YOU CAN DO IT!"  ;)

Damn, this is going to be hard! The car is twitchy and nervous, the kerbs are treacherous, high speeds. I predict lots of off-track excursions (by me, anyway).

With a quote like that you are probably going to win the round ;)

heeeeeeee what will we do without you bird?... :-* :-* :-*

This morning was raining(as usul) so I did few laps and I realised I need a fair bit of down force here to try to hit those difficult apex,i will be vulnerable on the straight though,,,maybe I will try to lift the wings slowly slowly tonight and see if I can find a decent speed and grip balance.I did a 34.5 with full wings,,,got to improve that :o

In the '34's? :o

The only 34's I have is sphincter clenching/sec every time I slightly touch a curb! :-X
I'm too shit scared to try and go fast. >:(
