@t0daY @Battenberg this should be you two. Before I plan other things, @t0daY can you race? And are your server joining issues solved?

Not sure. Gropping down the graphic a little bit did help and I could join more often. So it seems like a settings issue.

I am happy to drive, if you and @Battenberg wanna rock the show I am also happy to sit this one out :)

I'd prefer you to drive. I've got 2 coursework deadlines Tuesday after the race and would like the time to get them done. I will try and be around working in case you have issues.

Setup V1 is in resources. I broke into the 15's tonight, but race pace is currently mid 16's low 17's at this rate. Stiffer suspension with more camber on the front seems to be the way to go. I only did short runs tonight, longest stint was 10 laps.

Tyre wear seems to be just over 1% a lap with softs. Fuel stint will be around 46/7 laps, so double stinting tyres will take their life down to an unreached level - not sure if hanging on for 46 laps will be worth the 30-odd seconds it takes to change.

I managed a low 1:18 with your setup last night! I like the setup, did a few tweaks to make it turn better which made it more responsive. I will be practising again tonight, have to get quicker otherwise it will be a boring race for us.

Setup v2 is uploaded. The suspension is a little softer, making for a better ride. Hopefully better on tyre life too, as it's pretty marginal whether a set of softs will survive a double stint.

On low fuel and hard tyres (mimicking worn softs) the car is a little tail happy like in round 1, but manageable. It's most noticeable in turn 3 and the final sweepers. I don't want to dial it out with ARBs, as the car has a touch of understeer already on full fuel.

IMPORTANT INFO!!!

This round will be POSTPONED by one month. As a result, all other races in the schedule will also move back by one month. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to fix the issues with the track so far, meaning it isn't up to the standard that we require for events at SRC.

If we are unable to fix it within the next week or so, we will use another track. We apologise for the inconvenience, but we think it's important that we get this right, rather than fiddling on and having the current issues play a major role in the outcome of the race.

Well looking at the positives, I may be able to supply cover for @t0daY and @Battenberg in a months time. I should have less pressure on coursework then!

@Battenberg I hope to be online for a test session today. Could do with some help on set up and generally finding a bit more speed.
