My testing so far. And I don't think the length has been selected yet by Air. For me 20 makes it a simple 1 stop and I am in the 23 min for the race or so. Shorter or longer and strategy starts to come in to play.

RS = 6 laps 60l used

RM = 8 laps 80l used

RH = 10 laps (and you are basically out of fuel) 97l used

You must conserve fuel better than I... I did a test 20 lap race and ran out on lap 10 WAY before I ran out of tire. If I had the fuel I could continue another 3 or 4 laps with the tires I had.

I had tires left after 10. Fuel was the issue.

I guess we should go with that especially since you guys have been using that number. I don't want to test it since I am in a position to gain from a slight change.

So, lets to 20 laps GTR, 9 laps RGT

Actually I have (and posted) all the data needed to figure what ever lap count you go with. 20 just makes it a simple one stop for me.

The real question is can Spoool or Air make 10 laps on RM or RS tires. I know I can not.

Oh, don't you worry about me. I am pretty sure I can make it. I will test it today.

Air,

I just came up with a plan.

How about we both take Dave out.

I am hoping that my lack of a HC will help me. This track is a real SOB for me for some reason. The key is going to be getting out front ASAP as passing will be an issue. I wonder if I can run a "go for it" setup for 10 laps then change in to economy mode for 10 laps so I can take on less fuel on the pit stop. Hummmmm More testing tonight I think is in order to see if the fuel saved will still allow me to run lap times that are not to far off If I save 20 seconds in the pits BUT I am running lap times 3 seconds slower saving fuel that is a net of 10 seconds slower. Hummmmm MUST TEST MORE LOL

My plan is to GO FOR THE GOLD. So expect me to be up front for about 2 seconds

Any chance we can do RGT second? Chances are I will be stuck at work late (3 employees out with family emergencies).

I don't mind besides I need Spool to take out Air once Air and I take out Dave in GTR.

RGT second is fine with me.

It's actually a good transition for me since I drive super careful in GTR I tend to start with under-driving RGT, which is a good way to go.

When we do the RGT first I miss the brake points in GTR for the first lap or two.

So true... I have a feeling people will follow me through T1 and be like my god hes slow, because I brake in the shadow of the walk over and then coast up to my actual brake zone. Is it fast? I dunno, it seems fast because I dont go into a 4 wheel slide off the track into the kitty litter

In T1 I have to brake at the little rise otherwise I am trying to land he car on the other side and brake at the same time and that does not usually end well. And at the start you have cold tires to boot. I can see a lot of carnage at this track. Ohya and then there is the uphill after t1. I am use to the sweepers on the long track where as GVE has an abrupt turn after the first sweeper. I have to brake at the apex of the first sweeper if I want to make the next turn. Especially on RH tires. If I somehow end up in the lead at the start I can see getting punted here. Air got me in the test RGT race last week there the GTR is going to be worse.

I bet Air does it on one stop with 66l of fuel added on RM tires.

I prefer the multi stop race. I do better with strategy then actually all out speed.

Remember: the start is on cold tires so your brakes will suck the first lap.

BRAKE EARLY, BRAKE EARLY, and.... Oh yeah, BRAKE berkeleyING EARLY!

Raced in a room set at 425 pp. All other mods were ok. The deal was if you win a race you have to retire your car. It was fun. I don't know how this could be translated into a race series but I liked it.

That would be fun, however you would want to have like 10 eligible cars for people like spool. As you know not all cars are created equal.

I have the first lap down, atleast I did last week lol

With all the money you win I am sure you can find some cars, since you can buy like what 1200 cars? Albeit you really dont need 12 different miatas, s2k's or NSX's.
