Motion carried. We'll push back a week. I've got a sick kid I'm dealing with, and won't argue with an off week.

Well.... I am out tomorrow night also.  We really don't want to encourage Brad to play with himself....

Question:  The time in the schedule.  Is that that start of qualifying, or the start of the race?  E.g. if I want the race to start at noon, should I set the time to 11:00 am?

I may be on for a few tonight to see if I can keep the pointy end of the Ford going the correct direction at Bathhurst. Cockpit view is a bit disorienting in the quick downhill twisties.

I set it so that all sessions occur at the same time in different versions of the multi verse.

What Brad said. Start times and dates for practice, qualli and race are all the same. I usually set time progression to real time for practice and make it 1 hr, so conditions match up to 30 min race set at 2x time.

I am maybe a little bias here but I think it is the best looking car.  Not the fastest by any means (due to the driver) but. . ..   laugh

Too bad the pink pig or Rothmans retro liveries are not in the game. I’d rock the pink pig. 

The Ferrari may look better, but which car won Lemans last year?

Trying to decide if I want a low or high downforce setup for the race. I seem to remember going low down force before and getting eaten alive.

Did a long practice, qualli and a race with Dean. I was both slower and less consistent than him. I have to practice more and learn to not overheat my rear tires.

I learned I could make soft tires work. The drop off on them is the issue. I need to run another race on the hards and see what the drop off to.

In reply to dean1484 :

Were the softs faster? If the hards get overheated when pushing I'm curious as to how you kept softs under the car.
