PM, Schmee M. I didn't save the replay. Just look it over and do what you think is right.
At the end of race 2 I was severely handicapped by a dark brown right front so I positioned myself to have the inside line in the last corner. Assuming his car was in decent shape Havoc should have been able to set up to pass me. Instead he stuck on the outside and tried to run parallel to me. Might have worked on lap 2, no way on lap 10. Either way it's the slow way around and he probably wouldn't have been able to get it done. If I understand racing etiquette he should have yielded.
Race 1 was entirely my fault. I didn't consider the wind and took my usual line through the high speed left under the bridge. As soon as my car started to roll I hit SHIFT S but there was lag somewhere and it took a second before I spectated.
Sucks, could have used some points tonight.
What's up with the new guys? In my experience it's a bad idea to allow drivers to join a season in progress because they're not committed to the long term point outcome and are more likely to try risky maneuvers.
Ted, nice setup! Doesn't look very comfortable though. My teammate Al Payson often takes his G25 on the road with him. I've seen him driving from all over South America and Europe. The photos he posted all showed a desk or table and a proper chair though. That ottoman has to be tough on the back after a while.
Thanks for letting me win guys, that's a real morale booster. Top 3 finishers each scored 36 points so no relative change there this week. JayEyeBee is probably a bit smarter than the rest of us- he was able to skip ahead to the consumption phase of the event while still scoring decent points.
Dan, thanks for the set. All I did is crank the F/R diff 5 clicks to the rear. Suspension settings were fabulous, easy to steer with the pedals. I've been struggling every race with front tires due to lousy turn-in and I think you've shown me the key to getting the balance right.
My vote for Rusty Screw has to go to Boothy for disconnecting from the lead. I was gaining on him and really looked forward to the battle.
I wouldn't call it a chop at all. I was slow going in to be faster out. Unfortunately you were the opposite. It actually caught me off guard when I accelerated and you didn't. If I had anticipated that I could probably have held Ted back. Was lots of fun though. I was surprised that I was able to re-pass you, but my fronts were like Silly Putty by then.
Race 2 was better because I tweaked the set for tire life (duh). The incident with that showoff Boothy probably cost him the win. I haven't reviewed the replay but I did have the line and the position, and I left as much room as my POS car would allow. Probably was just a wee too early for him to try the pass, he coud have done it easily down the straight.
Fun race mostly, except for the fact that we're driving these wallowy 2 ton chick cars. See you next week.
Damn, I'm not that old! The fuel estimator said .7/lap so I did that and added a bit extra. As I coasted slowly into the pits frantically increasing the refuel amount, I saw that the estimate was now .9/lap. The real bad luck was that my suspension and body damage added 25 seconds onto the stop.
I had a hell of a time with the set for this race. Any set that handled OK just broke to pieces over the infield jump. Considering the awful handling of the set I finally went with I'm OK with the 6th/3d result.
