< 3.0 promotion by the end of the seasonYes, according to the stats I'm eligible for promotion to C now but it seems not until season end which, I believe, is around the end of February. Just pushing for the last bit of safety rating to get me to a D 4.0 which I think will get an early promotion but is the minimum for Daytona anyway.
This is OT but you notice the difference in strength of field between weekday and weekend racing, with a weaker field I was getting between +0.30 to +0.60 per race but as the weekend progressed and SOF went up the SR increase per race dropped to less than 0.10 (for clean(ish) races with similar results).
Lets see if my other half is not killing me for racing 3 nights in a row^^I will make a test session tomorrow night for 3 hours. I want to test the tires, if i can double stint them during the night. Start will be around 18 GMT. Race time will be midnight. Everyone is welcome to join. I will be on TS for the password.
Did you change anything to the setup? I keep having lockups after a few laps. Tried to adjust brake bias but If possible brake power should be more effective. I did one stint today and am on a high 1.42 to mid 1.43. There's room for improvement though. I expect to come near the steady 1.42 Maybe I can run behind you for a few laps to see where I can do better?
No, we changed nothing. It's not that easy to double stint the tires. I would not do it, if I hadn't tested it, because the car behaviour with full tank is a bit different. For me the breaking points changed a bit. But I need to be 100% focused to do it. If you can manage it, you can gain 10-15 secs in a stint.Did you change anything to the setup?

I think practicing the reflex of driving straight off at T1 if you miss the braking point is really important. If you try to slow and recover around the edge you are so likely to drive through the middle of the corner into centre barrier. Definitely better to go straight and keep the car intact.
I was referring to a fairly cold track - around 21-24 degrees. times on a warmer track (31) will be about 1-1.5 slower it seems. Cold has been easier to practice and learn the track, but warm practice is the next step for meOut of curiosity, are you all comparing times on comparable track temps?
