I'm always baffled what huge effects seemingly miniscule changes to a setup make...

These cars were like violins. A quarter-turn one way or the other can mean being competitive or not competitive.

So true, I had a solid setup that just needed to be babied, went up a couple clicks on the wings and the stinking thing was faster and more stable.

So true. That PB I got on the hotlaps page is a complete freak lap. I put one click less wing front and left and it was a complete new car. Not a better one, though...

I've had something come up and need to run out of town and I won't be back in time.

 I'm out for this one.

Do have to respect the yellow lines while racing? If so in what way? (2 wheels, 4 wheels)

Be prepared to be tied to a stake in case you score a strike on the pit exit apron... :D

Firstly had a faulty download for the gdb file, now my driving amounts to absolutely nothing Sad

Also noticed we're running alongside Montréal, I hope that wasn't the reason that people might be absent watching it Razz

Seriously struggling though to make the car feel grounded, the nervousity of the March still gets the better of me...

Does everyone let off the gas as soon as they see the yellow come out? I ser the no pass rule (thank goodness) but want to make sure I dont cause a pile up backing off while approaching the pace car.

The order is frozen the second the yellow is thrown, so there is no incentive to race back to the line.

I know that, I read the rules. My question is are people in the habit of letting off? If they aren't and I do I am going to get a front wing enema.

If they don't and cause an accident they are going to get penalties.

Ok, I hoped it wont come to this, but..

I have some health issues, and Im not sure if Ill be able to drive the whole race.. I certenly plan to start, and who nows, maybe I even manage to sit in a chair for whole race..

If there is anyone without the car eager to drive, please, let me know, Ill pass the car I got, it is much more fair than start the race from my side knowing it is maybe just for few laps..

I try to keep distance and position, which means, I don't immediately cut the gas, especially if someone is right behind me Wink But if I happen to race someone, I lift just enough the draft won't pull me any closer to the car in front of me. The next turn should give enough room then to spread it a bit out and increase the distances.

Normally I would shout out loud "here" but to the circumstances that I was always too late for a free car....keep it, try it. The reason is, because of this, I did 0 laps. I know I can drive but it isn't fair and might be dangerous. I see it for real and say, this is too late, no setup, no experience to this track so it is better to stay out of the race.

Im so sorry Steven, I was ok yesterday, but my condition got bad during the night, and I was at ER this morning, spent the afternoon in the bed, hoped I could sit and drive, but it seems I was wrong..
