I downloaded PS4 Remote Play on my laptop, so I may be able to at least spectate Wednesday. Depends on just how crappy the motel wifi connection is.

I tried it one series awhile back. Even went as far as bringing my controller and tried to run a few laps. It’s possible, but not fast.

I brought my controller, but don't figure I'll even try to race. I guess I could try it out tonight and see how poorly it works.

Looks like I might be out for Wednesday. (edit: might be in now...)  (edit 2: looks like I am out now) (edit 3:  I might be in again... )

The track is pretty nice actually, nice and wide.  The first corner would be a nightmare in bigger cars, but it shouldn't be to bad in these.

My tune ended up working really well as the tires wore out. It put a lot of strain on the fronts, but as they lost grip it effectively added grip to the rear which made the car much easier to drive. It also made it easier to put down power and allowed me to get on the gas harder and earlier than I could on fresh tires. The net result with the lightening of the fuel load was very consistent lap times for the full race.

I was looking at my laps and other than the ones where I went off my laps were all with in a second from start to finish. I think I ran my fastest lap in the middle third of the race.

I was running the second Sauce tune (A-2?).  It was not terribly different driving then my semi-stock tune I had (which I am pretty sure I wrote over) so it was not a big leap for me.  It was clearly at least a second faster though.  I did love drifting through the triple lefts.  I am sure I was not entirely driving it "right".  I was not sure how aggressive I needed to be, and when.  It seems like you HAD to be aggressive in tight corners, or you would just plow your way though.

It was also very clear Sauce had it figured out, as he walked away from me pretty quickly in the first few laps. I still have issues accurately targeting the apexes of corners because of the rapid transition between over an understeer with these cars.

In reply to aircooled :

The tune is a bit weird in that the harder you push it, the better it is.  If you drive it moderately it's ok, but to have it really work you have to pretty much be at 90%+ the entire time.  There is obviously some risk to that, especially early on, but once you get the feel of it you can figure out where to push more or less until the tires get to where they should be.

Yeah, I'm fine.  Just put my back out and had to miss.  Should be all fine by Wed.
