Hey Spidey can you also state the amount of laps for the enduro at the same time the track is released? Just so we can start to work out pit startigies.

Did it take you guys long to get the hang of the wheel when you first got them ?
I got a gt2 wheel just under two weeks ago, so far I'm still faster with the ds4.
More consistent with the wheel but slower.
Like at hockenhiem gp Over ten laps I can stay consistently in the 1:49's +\- hundredths, with the wheel.
1:47's to 1:48's with the ds4.

11-08-2015, 20:22
Hey Oi8u2, when I got my wheel it defiantly took me a good couple of weeks before I really got the hang of it. I was much quicker with the ds4 the first few week but just spending more time with it I learnt how to use it properly and get the most out of it ( probably still learning). But much quicker and consistent now.

ran the cars with furters and bugs last night for a while. hard to pick between the aston and the ginetta. good track choice spidey, they have their pros and cons thats for sure and im totally undecided which way to go. the aston clearly has the legs on the straights by a long way but ginetta smokes it under brakes. should be an interesting race !!

What did you do this time ?

spidey11
12-08-2015, 13:23
Haha all good rooz. That setup was right on the edge for me but I just couldn't get it to work. I'm glad I tried it because ur ginetta was getting any closer to my Aston in the first race. I think u had an ideal setup for ur driving style for that car on that track.

Plus second race a first tried to drive the ginetta like the Aston, then like the stock ginetta which didn't work. Too good tonight but watch out for tmrw :)

Have you sorted ur tyre wear for the enduros Rooz? I'm a bit scared of the one stoppers :distrust:

ChrisK
13-08-2015, 03:36
Not really, but I do know that I can't get 15 laps out of a set of hard tyres so ill almost certain to be stoping twice.

My net is stuffed, I can barely load webpages let alone play online so I'll have to give tonight a miss too. Thought I'd have it sorted by tonight. Shattered! I'll be in for next week's event for sure provided it's all sorted by then. Bloody optus...

Thanks boys. That was a freakin tough race. 33 laps of brands hatch is exhausting, I won't forget that in a hurry.

Ironmask drove a superb race doing a one stopper. Can't believe it, drive of the day. I think masky, spidey, bugs and deano were all within a couple of tenths of eachother for fastest lap. Impressive work from the boys being do close to deans time.

I got a great start and led into T1 but deano the alien was too quick for me so I let him thru so I didn't cook my tyres by defending and he then proceeded to pull away easily. I was just focussed on being clean and smooth. I had quite a few moments late in that stint but managed to just stay in front of spidey. As my tyres wore down and my fuel load dropped, I started to get very tailey and I took a punt by softening the rear roll bar a notch on the number pad. It worked a bloody treat and it let me stay out for those crucial few more laps. Spidey made a mistake and gave me some breathing room which helped immensely.

Being 33 laps I knew I needed to make the first set last so I had fresh rubber going into the last 2 stints to chase buggie down who I thought would be one stopping. I pitted on lap 13. perfect stop, no pit issues at all. I came back out in 3rd behind the alien in second and who I later realised was ironmask in the lead. I started doing maths in my head looking at the gap and thinking...shit...this is going to be so close. When I saw deano pit very early for his 3rd stint...I realised he was cooking tyres badly and he still had 15 laps to do on the last stint...So i just put the hammer down and flogged the hell out of the car for all 10 laps keeping a close eye on the gap to masky.

Pitted on lap 23, had a good lead and thought I'd done it when the muppets lost a freakin wheelnut, must have been the same idiots that did maskys stop cos they did the same to him. Pulled out literally right in front of ironmask and slotted in behind alien. Was super close and a key moment. that first stint let me push the second stint hard and essentially got me into a winning position. I slotted in behind deano but knew there was no way he'd be able to get the tyres to last so I just patiently followed him and by lap 29 I passed him easily and his tyres were so bad he had to pit again. From there it was just about being mistake free and focussed and with only 9 laps to do on the final stint I had fresh rubber the whole way and could easily pull away from masky who was in tyre conservation mode.

Unlucky spidey had a pit bug which short fueled him so he had to pit again.

Loved the strategy at play in the race cos of tyre wear. It definately adds a tension that is exciting. Hopefully everyone enjoyed it and had a clean race. :cool:

You know I was on with masky an hour before the race and he was screaming about how crap the car was and how slow he was. An hour later the fucker turns in the fastest lap and one-stops it. Lesson learnt !!
