PostSubject: Round 17 & 18 - Sebring   Thu Jun 03, 2010 10:32 am

ok, seeing this Meeting got moved ahead to this Sunday, im excited that i still have a shot to bump Aero off the 2nd place spot in the Driver standings. at the moment though, im struggling a bit with my Road America tunes at Sebring. not too serious, except that i have to shift to 3rd right at the apex of turn 11, making the rear want to come around. i could easily wait, but mentally, i dont want to keep the revs up that long. Or i could easily stretch/shorten 2nd gear a bit. best ive managed so far is a 2:03.386 with th 578hp Vette tune from RoadAm. i think i've sent that out to Y22 and you, Dan. so if either of you can get this vette to grip that corner 11 better, i'd be ok

Also, Dan, if you'd like to show up to sunday's GT3 race(s), how would you like to help secure the point standing swap by keeping a driver a spot between myself and Aero? Wink i've seen it done if real racing before, why can't we do it in TORA? Razz at the moment, im behind by 3 points

I'll be there, don't worry. I'll do anything to make at least one of the WWR very disappointed!

HA HA HA HA HA!! lol Razz

Yeah totally excited for this now! I was going to have to miss Sebring too as I'm on my stag weekend on the 19th & 20th but now it's been moved to this Sunday I will be there also!

after a handful of 5 lap sprints (which coincidently equal out to a Qualy session), i was able to get the 578hp vette to handle better and run faster times. now im down to a 2:02.966 (exactly 0.300 slower than the DB9 i used last season racing against you Dan. Wink )

Seeing there's wont be any tuning involved/allowed in the TASCAR launch-race, i can focus more on the Sebring tune until deadline. Smile

I was planning on running with my Rd America tune. Is this going to be the best option or would a more handling orientated tune run better around here.

i would think the same tune would work, with slight camber adjustments seeing as Sebring is more flat than Road Am. i will try out that Road Am tune i gave you for the Porka later today, and let you know mate. Smile

BLOOMING HELL! Where did you come from? lol Razz
I'll give you a hand mate. I'll put together a set-up for you by tomorrow.

What times are everyone doing? I don't know if 2:04.1xx is slow but I don't like Sebring.

compared to the 2:02.966 ive ran thus far in my 578hp vette, Dan, a 2:04 would be. Razz i'll shoot you over my tune and see if you can do better than me. Smile

OH! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I think I've got work to do but I've only just started testing today but I'm sure there's more room to improve somewhere.

i'll send you the tune im working on as well Daniel. Smile and as i mentioned to Dan last night when we got invited to AJ's little Ferrari lobby (idk what you call it), i took 10lbs of downforce off the front and rear on the existing tune, and knocked off 0.060 so far Laughing down to a 2:02.906

I've managed to get my time down to a 2:03.7xx but thats as far as I can go.
I've tried your tune switch. It does feel good to drive but I prefer my set-up. See if it works for you Daniel instead.

Well done guys! cheers cheers

Fantastic team performance once again with all three of us getting into A lobby. Or should I say four because of Duncan getting in there as well. A great performance from everyone in the THR Group. cheers

Sorry I wasn't able to get victory in the second race. Chillz was just too quick and I couldn't keep him behind for long. But at least we've taken a big chunk of points compared to WWR. Very Happy

Yeah we did! Smile and with Aero stuck in B lobby, that just sinched me taking the #2 spot. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy but today's races were very interesting to say the least. i got into the back of your vette at SWITCH Corner, Dan, then near the end ran into the back of biggs' Porka (the bumps in the track didnt help any). and in race 2, after the restart, i lost in-game Audio, but was able to hear everybody. i had a mirror instance of over-braking in SWITCH Corner like last season. Laughing And at one point, i had to cut to Daniel (y22)'s inside going into the hairpin to keep from getting into the rear of his Vette, and i ended up cutting the corner to keep off him. i hope i dont get penalized. and of course, i damaged my own car in that race (inside wall of final corner, and first corner, on seperate laps), and w/o the ability to hear my engine-tone throughout that race, i ended up over shooting the hairpin on two consecutive laps, which caused me to lose a bunch of spots (Chillz, Slim, and biggs. i got a spot back from Duncan)

edit: live timing updated: i should be now 6 points ahead of Aero. Twisted Evil

That was weird when you said youy lost the in-game audio. How long did you lose it for?
And if you are 6 ahead of Aero, thats awesome! Very Happy

You've done a great job then of somehow managing to finish the race. I've neverheard anyone say that they've lost the audio before.
I'm hoping that we have pulled away from Gemballa Porsche and a lot closer to WWR. I will defernately be there for the final round at Silverstone.

Have to say though that I'm getting more and more confidence with the steering wheel and pedals. The steering and acceleration is now as close to perfect as I feel I can get it. Its just the brakes now and then it should be ok...........hopefully.

i think before my two consecutive 'offs' at the hairpin in the 2nd race, i could have sworn i was catching you. but i'll take the finish i got. Smile Silverstone isnt til next month, so i can rest easy the next couple weeks (watch LeMans next weekend, and my trip to NC the week after that)

Thats perfect. It'll give me time in this next month to get prepared for Silverstone. I'm really looking forward to that race at home! I'll be looking to win in style if I can, but it will be impossible to beat Chillz ( Sleep Sleep ) as you know!
I would like to relax as well but I'm going to be really busy with the Shropshire Council County Training as well as a work placement.

i just looked over My points and Aero's points through the GT3 season, and with his lowest scored race being dropped (being tonight's race), we are actually TIED!!! but i think i should take the tie-breaker as i had the overall points win at Bugatti. Wink

D'OH! I was hoping you would have the advantage going into the final round.

I've worked it out as well that because of Chillz's ( Sleep Sleep ) two wins, we've actually dropped points to WWR! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

i shouldnt worry too much though mate. it seems like the races i have finished, i finished ahead of him in points each time. its just a shame i missed the Motegi Race (Easter here in the States), otherwise, the Road Atlanta race wouldve been my drop race.
