Sorry, too tired to race today after a stressing weekend,would only be a hazard at the track so after giving it a try I have decided to park the car.

DNF because of a small, but fatal mistake hurts. But boy, these cars are a pure pleasure on wheels! Absolutely no change on factory setup and it drives like a dream. I hope I'll grab a car for another race.

After struggling in testing to get any speed from the car I got a tip from Sky to reduce the wings and suddenly I was lapping quicker. Another wing reduction for Qualifying and I set my fastest lap time.
A good clean start to race and I moved up to run 6th, a few offs by other cars and I moved upto 4th. Grant pitted from the lead 2 laps before I was due to pit and Grant exited the pits behind me. i let Grant go past and was following him down the back straight into Canada corner only for me to misjudge Grants speed around the corner and I had to take avoiding action which saw me shoot across the gravel into the wall, race over. :doh:
I think that I was on the same pitstop strategy as Jacob is so could have had a good finish, I wasted it. But its good to have been quite competitive.

Just the disaster I expected it to become. Couldn't even get close to my personal best times I set in training, where I still don't know how I achieved them, even though they were completely uncompetitive. I started with the most care into the race, nontheless my complete right side suspension got already damaged at T1. Left hand corners got a bit more hairraising than they already used to be, but it was still managable. I was fighting for about P20, being pretty much helpless, as I carried to much wing with me. I was a bit better on the brakes and partly in the corners than my competition, but they'd just left me standing on the straights. Other peoples mishaps and retirements nontheless got me as far forward as 13th, but after my first pitstop, I had a spin exiting the Carousel, that caused a little more damaged than I already had, but it still felt alright. But a little later, I'd do the same stunt again, but this time, I got rid of my front wing and finally had enough.


While the week began encouraging, I like RA, had a nice balance and rhythm early on and was the first to record a time under 2 minutes on the server. But then, things stagnated. Apparently, I have a major flaw in my setup I couldn't remedy. Until 1:59.5 on an empty tank, things were fine. Trying to push the car under that time, the car became absolutely unpredictable. It could be I'd enter a turn, and the rear would step out. Next time around, same corner, it could as well slide off into the gravel understeering. Carousel was especially bad. Entry was fine, but on accelerating out, I never knew what's gonna happen next. Which are extremely bad preconditions to go into a race...

...and I still have no friggin' idea what's wrong, even though I turned the car inside out and back again for a few of times

Having a great race but yet again my engine unexpectedly blows. Just do not understand this engine. Full radiator. Lowest Revs, taking care with shifting, and like Toronto, just blows without no warning...

Anyway was fun. Hoping Jacob takes the win, deserved.

Michael Drechsler, sorry about that bump in T1. Everyone suddenly locked up (trouble up ahead?) and I locked the brakes trying to react. Not sure if the tap to the rear is what pushed you off track, lots of cars suddenly stacked all in one spot. Certainly shouldn't have caused your right side damage and as gently as it seemed I tapped you, I think I probably got the shit end of that deal.

Front wing damages and the car totally thrown out of balance. On and off, on and off. 5 or 6 trips to the pits. A ton of mistakes.
Stressful week, my head just wasn't in it at all today.

Thought I'd finish under power and ended up screwing that up too. Left rear puncture (second time) and again heading into the pits. Lost control of the car and hit the pit wall, killed the car with only a few laps to go. Grrrrr. Rage

I'm sure with the many issues I had I got in someone's way at least once.
Apologies in advance before. :doh:

I don't know if it's a configuration problem or if it's the rFactor, but sometimes i feel that the car just simply doesn't brake. It happens on every mod that i have and it's not a pedal problem. I'm kinda lost with it and changing the sensibility ratio of the axis it's not working or helping. Anyway, someone has a light?

ps: I'm posting it because it's pretty normal on NR2003, GPL and even GTR2

Thanks Smile

This one felt good!

Best qualifying session I've ever done, but to slip off the road on the first lap was frustrating. Thought I had thrown away there, from then on I really had to push it. Catching up with Grant would be very tough, but I really gave it my best. We were off sequence with the pit stops, after an early miscue from him, and I think I had an advantage on him with that. But sadly, we never got to battle it out on track. Shame.

But just over the moon with my performance this time around. Everything clicked here.

:champ:

Another unexpected 5th place after I nudged a wall early in the race, really happy with that result. :top:

That went pretty well, though i was knackered towards the end. Haven't done a full length race in months!

Had a couple of silly spins and pit stop repair time which i reckon lost me about a minute, but thats just minor stuff. I finished thats the main thing.

I love that car. Its like someones sneaked a f5000 onto the grid Laughing

As its going to appear at the last few races, can i claim it like a full time ride? Twisted Evil

You were very quick in that oldtimer! It took me quite a few laps to get near you.

I Drive the car for the first time last night, I trained like a madman and I even simulated a race, on the start of the race looked like it would be all right, the moment I was touched on the first corner, I spin and went to 24 ° placement, but no damage! From there it was a recovery race,from 24° to 4° with lucky and some breathtaking disputes, i fightes for every centimeter, but (sadly) my engine exploded 5 laps to complete the race, man that made me really pissed me off, but I know this is racing!

I've never run such a long race before (Online), I've had disputes with Juha Bos, Richard Wilks and so many others and the result of this destroyed me especially with my hands! but this race pleased me a lot, I have a lot to improve and a lot to learn and that motivates me.

I'm just sorry if I messed anyone up on the qualification. :doh:

The car is designated a one-off drive at all races.

what a race yesterday, minimal preparation, only 1h and only Q mode of setup, when saw the times of other, i didnt expect too much , to the Q session a joined little late and in end i drive 1s better than my previos times, so 1éth place on grid was miracle number1, for the race i only fill the tank, boost set from 5 to 1, one clict to the cooling, 2 clicks from max revs and added full thicknes on brakes, at the start didnt lost position as usualy, instead i was soon on 6th position, then after mylittle mistakes a fall to 11th, but the end of the race was miracle number 2. 4th place is best result for me in cart88 super mod (car is handlink beliveable and feeleng of its in FF sis one of the best i know)

THX to Juha and others for fair battles :top:

Great Race! My car was very steady and I was growing in the field. After the first Pit Stop I was in 9 position, and fighting with the Newman Haas and Marlboro Cars. But in 17 lap I oversteered in ladt corner and i had a soft crash but enought to make seseveral damages in front suspension. In the pits, my engine doesnt endure 80 seconds in neutral and overheated...

For long pitstops to fix damage you need to switch the engine off or it will overheat and blow-up.
