    i did again.
    setup improved a bit but not as good as it should be.

    total race time was 8.28 mid with a laptime about 7.50 low.
    gap to the following was ... enough :D
    this was driven with IMs, I'll try the heavywet now.

    edit:
    improved to 7.45 laptime still on IMs

    8.08 laptime in a brandnew BLUEBIRD wasnt fast enough for the Elise 111R race car
    maybe next time. At least 2nd with 8.38 race time

    Just realized my total time is in the low 9's, so that's what I was missing. My actual lap times are around 8'40". I need to pick up the pace!

    I'll try it. Always willing to try something new.
    Will give it a shot in about 45 mins to one hour.

    @fordlaser777 that's a fine tune for the 155 around here. Actually didn't own this car so a good excuse to spend some Cr.

    EDIT: I didn't to chassis reinforcement, just a single run. Will compare with it installed at some point.

    Wheww!!! Quite zippy eh? Had to run a couple races with it. Pity couldn't go over 149-150mph on the longest straight though as it needed it then. Otherwise passes other cars before. The tune as said is quite zippy but not as stable/grippy (although with "Racing Intermediate" tyres) as some others I used for this race. Nevertheless quite fun.
    Best made was a 2nd against the same Elise 111R Race car '04 in the line up which came 1st.
    It's a keeper nevertheless. Cheers.

    Testing again!

    Max downforce was too much.

    IMG_0571.JPG

    Too much downforce again. Stuck to the track like a magnet until you put one wheel on the grass!

    IMG_0572.JPG

    Fun to drive, minimum downforce :)

    IMG_0574.JPG

    Another fun race!

    IMG_0575.JPG

    And finally the beast, worst car to drive. Didn't change the car tune. Be careful when the third gear engage. Wheels are spinning like hell!

    I noticed the AI ARTA Garaiya winning, bought one, tuned it and won gold. Would never have bought the car otherwise. Drives great.

    The best I could do was 8th, as @sync said good handling but slow and this one is going back in the garage. My Great Capture Screenshot 2016-05-10 15-15-00.png

    150 mph is totally enough for the longest straight in the end. its going uphill all the way to this "Bilstein" bridge and the 500PP cars normally do not have enough power to go faster here (a bit maybe but not significant) except you try this without any downforce ... but i wouldn't

    For this event (500pp racecar) the fastes passage are the long downhill bend in the first couple of sections. Quiddelbacher Höher, Kottenborn - Schwedenkreuz and Fuchsröhre was sections where i ran into gearbox limiter first.

    PD should allow NOS installation if using car with 100pp lower than regulations here to make it more fun especially on the straight. :D. Still doesn't know why NOS is available but not permitted to make it more fun on some seasonal challenges after so many years.:banghead:

    I think the gears had something to do with it, the AI were nowhere near the corners that made things easy for me.

    oh yes i had some realy hard impacts while trying to overtake some of them especialy on the entrance to long straights. Thats anoying ...

    I found out that switching down the light can help a bit to see better through the rain or spray

    i dont think that there is a general best car for this.
    It depends on the personal preverance if you like 4x4 or MR or FR behavoir more.
    with a alfa 155 or calibra kind 4x4 you will stick on the track like clue but there are fast one if you manage to handle them.
    the Elise, garaiya or other MR cars are way more agressive and the FR cars feel (to me) a bit more balanced. Both are a bit faster than 4x4's

    FF's are awfull for its permanent wheelspin all through the first 3 or 4 gears. but doable aswell.

    For me it was the FR type Roadster that gave me the most fun
    The Calibra which was the easiest run
    and the IS200 which was the fastes so far.
    But i didnt try the hole bunch of GT300 cars yet. limited down to 500PP they will be the fastes i quess. unfortunately i cant remember my Garaiya time
