I worked on my setup making a small change at a time focusing on a specific corner or section. Ended up very close to your 005 setup. My rear springs a click or two softer. Front springs and bars are the same. Gearing and tire pressures are biggest differences. 

Managed a 1:40.1, but haven’t got into the 39’s yet.

I managed a bunch of laps around Opryland chasing my kids. It's tricky and had a lot of wear, but I'm not sure the experience transfers. 

I'll try and get some practice over the next couple days.

Anyone planning on being on tonight? If so, I'll join you at Oulton Park, if not I guess it is time I move on to Mugello.

I may but just drove for 13 hours in real life so driving is not on the top of my list of things I want to do at the moment.

Dark King turned some good laptimes last night. Should be a good race Wednesday. 

In other news, Mugello is a blast in these cars, but it kills my left front tire. It gets overheated after a lap or two and turns yellow/red. No idea how that will play out over 38 laps, but it seems like the BMW will have an advantage there. My Oulton Park setup seems pretty good at Mugello other than gear ratios and radiator opening.

I am not worried about Dark King.  Let’s just say his pit crew will have a very nice Christmas...

He did a full practice race on one set of tires just in case.

Looks like a good chance (EDIT: Now confirmed) that I will miss Mugello as well as Oulton Park. Not sure why the people at work keep expecting me to be out of town on Wednesdays, it seems like they do not have their priorities straight. Too bad playing Playstation doesn't pay my mortgage.

If we do the Ring on Wednesday Dec 18th, I will miss that too, but if we move the Ring to the following weekend I'll be able to make it.

So this is a good a time as any, but after this week pretty much any other date is a wild card.  My wife isn't "due" until the end of the month, but with these things you never know.  I don't really think it'll be an issue, but if I go MIA for a few days out of nowhere then Sauce Jr v2.0 is likely the reason.

We could push to tomorrow so TJ could race if everyone is up for it.  Sauce is a wildcard on any given day, so what say the rest of you?

I am good with that.   

If you want to move around the final race so Travelin' Man and The Baby Factory can make it, I am fine with that also.
