Should also mention I learned something this Monday...  I've always apexed the final turn before the straight, but noticed the faster people were staying high on the banking.  Dig it. Smiley Wink

Some players have mastered how to do that. I never have. For some reason, every time I tried, I velcroed my car to the guardrail or something like that.

Yeah, I had to momentarily let off the throttle entering the turn, but once you get back on it you can hold it all the way through.

Weekly Details

 

This week's event will mimic the current Miata Seasonal, but it will be slightly different, to curb any bordom. The laps will vary per track and I hear that we could get wet, at Suzuka. After all, it is Japan. Tires will remain the same Comfort Softs and they should have no problem lasting the laps. Tuning is allowed, within the limits. No aero. The power and weight should allow most or all Miata variants without messing around too much (I didn't test them all). New cars are available in the On-line Dealership. Penalties have to be turned up in open lobbies for some of these tracks.

 

Indy = 7 laps

London = 10 laps

Suzuka w/weather = 5 laps

Trial Mountain = 10 laps

 

I've expanded the base number of hours, since most of the time we can easily do more than two hours. That's just being realistic, but it is still up to the drivers how long they stay.

I would like to use the RUF Yellowbird for week 3.

 

Does everyone have it or do we need to set up a trading circle?

I have a couple I can send out, if anyone needs one.

I'll watch for people asking.

Holy cow, the Yellowbird gains 29(!) horsepower after the break-in oil change!

Might want to specify. Is the TC allowed?

I'd suggest not...

It has aero, right, so no.
