    i had so much stuff to clear before the race started , that i couldn't practice before racestart...
    then lol just after starting the pacelap my phone rang and i had to pick up the call (thought i would do it in 30seconds but the call mast about 6minutes) so it made the start very difficult , doing mistake after mistake having to think about a way for my friend to go as he was lost...

    after this , i started pushing but made the real coslty mistakes trying to go above the limit as i had approx. 20seconds to recover ... then it climbed over 1minute after the first stop and only there i was able to start racing and have some pace running almost my entire stint in the 18s ...

    i have to say i love the sc430 it's a great racecar , and the way the cars/drivers are classed is just fine to me as it makes fighting for a position very difficult ...

    i'll post the setup i used tomorrow or later but expect it before mondays race , i'll also try to post a decent GT-R and HSV setup for the guys struggling a bit more. ... sent it to paul saturday it seemed to help ;)

    edit : forget to congratulate paul for his win and erazer for his 2nd place , and also everyone for finishing . championship will be awesome

    I will not be on tonight. I have to go out of home and I will return at around 10 PM BST, so I cannot practise.

    Fascinating guide you have provided and very good of you to do so.

    Any tips on moving ballast backwards or forwards?! :D

    as a rule of thumb you want it slightly backwards.
    For these cars (GT500), I'd say 40-50% if its a low amount of ballast (less than 30kg), and as you increase the ballast, you need to move it towards the center. when you're up to 200kg, it should be around 5-10%.

    There are exceptions, especially if the car already is very unstable, or if there are lots of slow speed corners, hairpins and tight chicanes etc. then moving it forwards can work.

    Also, the tune posted below is for a SLS AMG GT3, so not very good for these cars.


    And I can also qualify tonight, just need a bit of practice first. :) if that does not work out I can do it tomorrow.
