Raul in the worst case scenario some more wing both front and rear will make the car slower but more stable. It is better to run 200 laps slow with confidence than 10 scared and ending in the wall.

Haha, dear Alberto, no more clicks for wing. Those are at max Smile

But to be a bit optimistic, I did some changes today, and car behaves better. And I made 100 laps, which is maybe helpfull :hihi:

And, to clear something, car is not undrivable, far from that.. its just that Im not able tu push harder when Id like to, and its the starting point of my cry!!

I see the light at the end, though!! cheers cheers

Raul, I realize that time is tight. And in this 11th hour, it is a luxury that many cannot afford! So get the laps that you can, and stop worrying about it. If you aren't comfortable adjusting the car's setup and it 's drivable as it sets, now is not the time muck about with it. It's time to concede and say, "I have what I have." And be comfortable with it.

CARDINAL RULE #1 for ANY driver in ANY car in ANY race at ANY track!

You and your car run the specified number laps as quickly as possible! And that is your only task. Just like qualifying. The only differences are the number of laps and now there are other cars out there with you.

DO NOT try to race with the other cars! You find a cautious way around them if they are slower, and you HOLD YOUR LINE (not blocking!) when faster cars approach from behind. It is THEIR job to find a clear way around you. In an argument, I will always support a slower driver who is keeping a solid racing line, over some "ace" who thinks he as right-of-way because he "thinks" he is faster!

Once again, your only job is to get your car around Indy 200 times as quickly and responsibly as your car will take you. If you concentrate only on that and not be tempted by (and/or avoid) the "boy-racers", you will be amazed at your result!

Well, this race comes to be something special to me Smile

Yesterday afternoon there was a storm in my place and a Lighntning Bolt flashed near my house, and my PC burned ot to hell, and my routet and all...
I was so near to let you know Im off, but phone company guys promised they'll fix it today, which is unbelivable for my country, but they came and fixed ti!

So, this is just rising in tension... and yet, more than 24hrs to te race!!

Here is the way Sunday will unfold with regard to first-come first-serve slots:

In the hours before the final practice, the server will be shut off.

At exactly 19h30 CET Sunday, the server will be relaunched.  The first four drivers on the server with the intent of being a first-come first-serve will be given priority, in the order they log on. If one or more of these four logs on with a duplicate car, the driver who logged on with it first keeps it, and the other(s) must leave and select another. This does not mean they relinquish their spot on the grid.

213 mph now on straight with full tank, saw some cars (in test races) with the same engine on 220 mph. I cant get lower on rear wing and the front wing has no big influence. Where to i get more straight line pace setupwise? My 43.5 is far off the pace i think.

The broadcast may start a little late as I'm away refereeing floorball (I should be home an hour before the start of the event but unexpected things happens so I can't be 100% sure I'll be home before 2000 hrs) but the broadcast will start as soon as I'm home if I'm home later than 2000 hrs Embarassed

Gearing (to long, so you can't rev it properly out), ground clearence (bit lower does a thing or two), rake (rear to hight?), boost?

As a rule of thumb, top speed at the straight is the result of how quick you went through the previoous corner. Sometimes reducing wing wont help because you are not coming out of the turn quick enough.
