Driving tire menu has a USAC top view silhouette.
Would be nice to have a Can-Am top view silhouette instead, if we have time.

I know it's way down the road but hay bales blocking the NASCAR split at Riverside have huge rebound factor, spitting cars back onto the racing line. (I know I shouldn't be out there but it happens. OK?)

A link has been added to the 1st post with info about the M8F, driving report, etc. Makes good reading and lets you understand many things about how these cars drive and why Smile

#23 skin has red paint on the mirror faces in all views but cockpit view.

Checking #23 I notice that a lot of the other McLarens have incorrect mirror faces. Mad

Well, we have two days to work through the fixes. So no worries.

While testing the 917/10 I had some "red" lightnings over the whole screen in "hood" level (cockpit view) but only when car would shake more intense over bumps. I tested it only in Edmonton.

Some of the McLaren's windscreens are placed at a bad position, the top of the windscreen is at default eyepoint level and it's distracting.

I do realize that raising the seat up gets it out of the way, but i figure i could mention it.

He looked back and where he'd taken off, it was way back, 150 yards or more.

It doesn't look too good for Chuck Parsons here. It would depend on the size of the driver and how much wind buffeting the driver could put up with.
Anyway as you say the seat can be raised or lowered.

One more small thing, David.  I think the supports holding the tailpipes on the M8E and M8C McLarens may be picking up body color from the wing or some other part; I would think they should all be a uniform dark grey.  Please check if you can.

Use the rear antirolls. Stiffen them up if your car is pushing or rolling on 3 wheels, etc.
