    Thanks Dave! I've got a classic coming up in a few moments...this time with a VERY entertaining video (NOT for the reasons you would expect!)

    Formula C - Euro Series - Race 3/5 - Imola - Tune for AI 60/60

    Wet/Wet/Dry. That's the session weather. Meaning like Donington before I can't do any meaningful tuning as we close to sliding around all the time anyway. Made some minor adjustments, qualified first using AI 40/40 in the wet. Then put AI up to 60/60 as soon as I saw the race was dry. 40/40 race would have been no contest. 60/60 turned out to be a contest alright. Setting race to maximum 10 laps I couldnt survive past 4 laps with the superfast AI taking me out during a dangerous pass. I took some videos to show what they will do at aggression 60! I also was stunned by their superior speed down the long straight. They were always faster than me despite me lengthening the gears. I even reduced the race to 3 laps out of desperation thinking I could close the radiator fully and gain an advantage. Nope! Still faster than me. I concede I could have driven a little better but they always caught me on the straights regardless.
    Here are my recommendations:
    Run qualifying at AI 40/40. Unless you are a fish.
    Run Race at AI 60/60 short length of 3 laps. Or if you are very confident with blocking safely make it longer. Except you need to open the radiator as it gets hot here leaving you vulnerable to the alien AI with their warp speed thrust. I am convinced their superior speed must be due to whatever tires they use, high pressure for speed combined with glue-like grip?

    Here is a video of some AI shenanigans plus the full 3 lap race! See me get passed on the OUTSIDE of the final double corner! See me dive bombed! See me treated as target practice by the same car at the same corner in two successive laps! If you block the apex they are unfazed and will just go past you wider (they have no problems on grass). Best thing about this race (to take a positive from the experience) is to consider it a supreme exercise/practice in the art of blocking faster cars during a varying assortment of corners, fast and slow.



    Here is the tune. Remember I closed the radiator to try and keep up with their pace. I do NOT recommend this unless you want to finish the way I did in the video above!
    Only 2 races to go then we're done (I can't bear to look if there is another FC series to complete!)

    Formula C - Euro Series - Race 4/5 - Oschersleben A - Tune for AI 100/100

    Finally as soon as I started practice I noticed the tire problem was no longer present at this circuit! So after posting laps near the TT WR I upped the AI to 100/100 at last! They lap at speeds at or around WR TT pace so it's a great challenge.
    Hot lapping with the radiator closed is fastest but at this track you only get around 3 or 4 laps max before you blow the engine. So if an AI car is in the way you can't afford to waste a lap, get round him somehow! For the race I opened up the radiator
    to 75% which was safe (topped out around 215f), although it meant the AI (do they even have a radiator value to set?) was right on my rear for the whole race, and passed me several times. One of the best races I have ever had in Pcars 2. If not THE best so far. Full video below
    showing hot laps in practice (32.900) and qualifying (33.650), and the full race. Wouldn't have bothered uploading it but as we finally got the AI up to 100/100 it's great to see what a challenge it really is! AI will pass anyway or anyhow they can, prepare for some
    knocks if you are at all cautious approaching a tight bend. If behind you they don't hesitate at hairpins, if in front they have the habit of brake checking you at the apex. I use mechanical damage only, use full damage at your own peril!

    Formula C - Euro Series - Race 5/5 - Le Mans Bugatti - Tune for AI 100/100

    Sweated blood (almost!) over this tune. Wasn't feeling well (nausea) and wanted a tune that would do well without me trying much (!) I nearly qualified last but managed one OK lap and got 2nd on grid. Tried couple of 10 lap races but as I said wasn't feeling great so taking it easy in front didn't happen the AI took me out by dive bombing the chicane twice (see video). I'm including 2 radiator tunes. 1 for the 10 lap and 1 for the 3 lapper I decided I could cope with! Fine tuned gearing with 1 high to match the last corner sweetly so the start was dead easy full throttle no chance of spinning out then off into the sunset..kinda. Proud of this tune as from watching the short video you can see I'm driving lamely and even pick up a slow penalty for a lazy chicane last lap. BUT....if a chap not feeling 100% can stroll away with this event with AI on 100/100 I'm sure ANYONE could do well with the setup! My best half-hearted laps were around 1.41 (faster than PS4 time trial and about 3 seconds from PC record). I reckon someone good could get a great time with this tune. Anyway here is the video and the tune!
    (Sorry forgot had Bluetooth speaker while racing and PS4 picked it up!)
