Brief description of incident: 046 runs wide in the long lefthander into SC3, hits the grass and then gives full throttle, propelling the car onto the racing line while being out of control, hitting me in the process.
I've noticed quite some people on our training server struggling to find or make a good racing setup for the FXR, so I decided to share what I've come up with so far. I attached a R3/R2 racing set and a R4/R3 racing set.
The R3/R2 is the fastest and most developed at this point, but harder to keep the tire temperatures at bay, the R4/R3 is easier to handle and probably just as fast in the opening laps, but you will struggle for grip after the heatpeak. Keep the front tyre temps below 125, preferably max 120 degrees at all times with the R3/R2, or you will struggle with the middle section of the tyres heating up in corners at the end of your stint.
If you're struggling with too much heat in the tyres on R3/R2, I suggest practising with the harder compound and learning to manage that first. The R3/R2 setup can't handle being driven like a hooligan.

Thanks to everyone for the race, and congratulations to the winners. Special thanks to Team Vires for helping us out again this race
Among all the complaining, I'd like to say I thought the racing was pretty clean. There were some close shaves and hairy moments but that's all part of racing.
As for the GT500/GT300-problems on the track: I think if more GT500-drivers would be doing some practise laps among GT300-drivers on the practise-server before the race, there would be less than half the trouble with traffic. While preparing for this race, I rarely saw a GT500 on the server and if there was any, good chance it was just hunting for glory laptimes.
