    Put in a decent QT on the alt and the main account, for Race A. Gave it a spin. Man! It’s elbows out for sure! But up front and clear of the carnage in the mid-pack mob, it’s fun racing, as expected. Ran one on the alt and while I managed a podium in the top split, was amongst some dirty drivers...

    FIA Manufacturers Round 9 Gr3 at Lago Maggiore GP Never really can get the handle on this track, and I had a feeling the Porsche was at a pace disadvantage, so was not expecting a lot. Despite a good Nations season, I've struggled a bit off and on in the Manufacturers Cup races, and as the...

    Yeah I’m thinking that Autopolis in FF Gr4 will suit me very well, thank you. I like the track and I’m pretty confident in FF cars. Saddle up!

    Nope... nevermind. Never going to retire this account. After this, I ran 4 races on the main account. Mostly same room, as was being matched in the top split and had very similar qualifying time. Got punted, rubbed, doored, and race ruined, including 2 wins stolen from me, in 3 out of the 4...

    Might retire the Alt account I use for Dailies... Never really thought I'd get to A+ rating. Started racing on the Alt account (my son's PSN) to avoid messing up my main account's DR/SR... and here I am 10k above the main account, clean as a whistle, and wishing it was my main! Broke the...

    Nations Round 9 - TT's at Alsace After some pretty decent practice laps, including a dip in to the 1:59's, and having had success with the Gr4 TT in the past, felt good about this race. Was lucky enough to get out of the pits first, with a clear track in front, things were looking great right...

    Also, you should anticipate that your time will be further off the top times, in this combo with a Gr2 car and a tough track. It's the norm. So rely on the Blade site if you want to estimate whether your qualifying time is ok or not, but don't be discouraged if you're further off the top times...

    Heart Rate (HR) during FIA

    I’ve done the same. RHR at about 50-55, race rates about 105 typically. (I’m a runner.)

    Nice to have a Daily that suits me this week! I love slinging the Clio around, and that Tokyo layout is one of my favorite tracks. I love the flow of it. Bumped my Alt account up each of the four races I put in, after meeting my K' target and then some with a decent lap that put me in the top...

    I really like the K' site and Speed Score is a nice challenge to track performance. It is essentially 1 - the % gap to your region's top time. So 87 means that you are typically within 1.3% of the top time for a Daily event within your region. There is a formula to only count a certain top...

    Boy, I'm usually handy with econobox races in Race A, in terms of pace. But getting to my K' Speed Score Target Time in the Daihatsu at Goodwood has been a struggle. That's a tricky one, and I can't quite figure out why it's so different from the Mini, for example (where I was really quick...

    Here's my 3-wide move for three places at once, with two laps to go at RBR. Not advised. Went on to protect that position as others spun their rear tires for the remainder of the race, while I maintained some consistency with better-preserved tires. I think that @dlshearon is in there somewhere...

    Nations Round 8 Red Bull Ring - Gr.2 I have a hard time at this track... no feel for the braking in this point-and-shoot arena. And in Gr.2 cars, it's even harder. Wasn't pleased to see door #1 then, as I was matched in the first slot. I was happy enough with my pace in FP, and in fact put in...

    The thing is, it’s actually quite effective at Monza despite the power. Brakes are awesome. Tall final gear makes it really good in the draft. And really fuel efficient and easy on tires. From 14th the plan should have been easy: stay in the draft, climb the ladder at full fuel mix all race. But...

    Qualified 14th at Monza in the Porsche with no tow. dropped a wheel out of Lesmos 1 and binned it. Never did that in this game ever. cold hard tires on the Cayman and no practice meant a terrible race. 17th after some quits and one FF struggled to limp home on worn tire.

    FIA Nations Round 7 KYOTO DRIVING PARK - YAMAGIWA II Mazda Roadster Touring Car Kind of a 'meh' race. I really like this track for the most part, and I like the TC racers, but it just didn't come together for me tonight. Gave myself plenty of room clear of the pack in qualifying, but ended up...

    I may be mistaken but I thought the SR was only 'binned' by 90-99... then according to DR. So you should get matched in the same lobby with 96 SR as 99. Or do I have that wrong?

    Anyone else shallow enough like me, that they really dig it when they put in a personal best time in the FP session before FIA races, so that you get the crowd response, compared to the open FP sessions before race session entry is open?! It doesn't happen much, but when I put in a best time in...

    Seems like good advice to wait in the pits for a clear track to qualify in this Nations / Miata TC race at Yamagiwa... a long lap and some sketchy turns that could end up holding you up for a long time, if someone botched their own lap, or if they take a much 'different' approach to a section as...

    So, ah, I don’t suspect KTM sales will be picking up noticeably after this week.
