Friday night, the hard drive my OS is on failed (will no longer detect in bios).  After work saturday was able to find something adequate in stock, so now i had the parts.  Then there was a delay trying to get a disk (no idea where mine went), long story short, was nearly 2am before i was able to start the install procedure, final updates at 530am.  So, it was a long night, early morning, but everything is back up and running.  still need some adjusting to wheel and graphic settings, but so happy that i'll be able to race.

good luck all,
dave

PS> raul, we are in the same chassis/engine combo, i can share what im running. not the fastest (i felt more competitive on the previous track version), but what i have is pretty stable, decent so far in traffic testing.

Installed a new (to me) CPU cooler this morning.  I'm thinking those copper heat pipes might be worth three (3) mph on the front and back straights.

I understand that people needs to be aggressive to stay on the lead lap, but damn, gutting to say the least. Just had nowhere to go when they lost their bearings. Rolling Eyes

I was doing great until lap 54 when Grant steered into Dana (He did not saw her I think) in front of me. Grant went sideways and I managed to brake in time but sadly I lost my back due to the hard breaking and broke my right rear tire against the wall. Poor Jacob who was playing a waiting game behind me was a victim as well and lost a tire. Typical Indy 500 accident: Innocent drivers going into the wall Laughing

Awful race for me.

Went a lap down due to a not so very well timed pit stop and yellow situation.

After that it was just a waiting game to try and get back on the lead lap. Has a couple of very close calls. One with Dana which looking at replay i can see i slightly turned in on her so apologies to her and also to anyone cuaght up behind that slide. Also to Jason.W. Held my line on the outside and to be honest im not sure what happened.

A race to forget tbh

So annoyed at myself for not realising I had a puncture earlier then not slowing down earlier when I did. so stupid Sad Was such small contact didn't think it would cause that to happen.

Race had been going pretty well up to then, with this type of arcade pack racing it was just a matter of trying to avoid any inevitable incidents so was happy to run on boost 1 and conserve the engine and fuel till the last stint and keep my car undamaged.

Am going to need to consider if I want to carry on racing or not as its not been fun for quite awhile now, will let admin know when I have made my mind up.

My typical luck. What else can I say?
Oh yeah, right.

Martin Lacina, I know you were faster, but pushing so hard into the turn and making me spin isn't cool! I mean, it didn't give me any damage but it was just not cool.. Not gonna put anything against you, but you could have waited for the straight. Smile
Few laps later, after a restart, someone in a Lola I think, blue-white-pink car hit me and pushed me in the wall.. Great. Rage 
Put 4 laps down by the repairs.. so, that wasn't too cool either.
So, lap 130-something. After a restart again. We were just bunched up and all of a sudden, I found myself in the pit wall without a front-left wheel! Rage 
Yeah, I'd say the "Mikula-luck" strikes again. *sigh*
I honestly don't know if I'm ever allowed to finish a race in this series in a good position tbh..

just taking my time trying to keep the car clean until the end. i could hold on in the draft, but jari and dana both had more pace, especially in the turns, still was going to be fun at the end. my last caution, the server was instructing me to stay behind the pace car the entire time, there was a car several laps down staying side by side (even if the game was telling you behind pace car, if you know you aren't supposed to be there, and you are laps down, why not stay back and let the race go clean?).

as soon as the green came out it gave me a stop and go, and deducted laps instantly. 2 races in a row bit by bogus flags.

go get em jason, buick!

A shame to have it decided by contact but top full-season finisher two years running isn't too bad. Smile

Congrats to all survivors!

Lag ruined my race. And i apologize to anyone else it did too.

It started out of nowhere, it would go back good again, then it would spike out of control, cars disappearing, etc, i am truly gutted, because i reckon with the boost all out i could  go with Dana and Jari...

At some point i had to do repairs, and i tried to be out of everybody's way and collect points..


Rage  :bangry:

Really dont know where i had to be because server wrote me that im too slow and that i have to be behind safety car. I affraided that i would get some penalty for that so i went in front. If somebodz clarify what server want please tell.

My point of view is a bit different. I saw a again your very agressive behaviour ( closing the door in each corners when i was next to you) and as i saw your spin has been caused by a lot of touching into my rear so your mistake not mine. Please stop blaming everybody when you make any mistake.

And why did I touch your rear? Because you forced yourself next to me in T3 - where I was in front, but only a bit slower on the entry.
