I'll be away for this first race of the series, so if an SRO Admin is not in the race, please make sure to advance to Qualifying on time.
I'm going to miss this one, be back for Laguna Seca!
Race Day PW has been set on the Champ page !
Good luck all !
I'm wondering how many of you managed to do the whole 1hr race on 1 set of soft tyres?
My testing showed it pretty much impossible, I'm very impressed.
Tough one, other than in Fuji my MP4 was drivable but very slow. Especially on the straight, I´m pretty sure 1/8 was too much wing, but Ed, Barrett and Roger past me as an LMP1 laps an LMP2 or something similar. Maybe that is more than the effect of high drag/downforce.
Therfore some work to do for Laguna seca, chosing the soft tyre was also an concern but as I´m that slow I´m not representative.
I had 1-9 wing in the 650. How close the 2 cars are in terms on angle I'm not sure.
Sorry to hear that Phillip, but this is the reason I ask to change my car. I'm pretty sure this cars need some BOP. It is unbelievable how slow is that McLaren MP4 12C. I drive it at Spa and feels like missing one gear. A pure shame
MP4 is a slow car, but handles well, same as the 650s, also slow compared to the others, (slightly faster than MP4) but handles way better.
The McLarens need twisty tracks, not fast ones
(just my opinion of previous usage of ACs GT3s)
Well you should have told me that before
I chose the car because I drove it before against the AI, in addtion my laptimes in with a Merc Fuji were not that different. But that topspeed disadvantage is enormous. As Ken is on holidays I have to stick to the package for Laguna and then see if I should change my car too.
