    Oh btw @hsv nice bump drafting early on, we'd have been screwed if we didn't do that :tup: (Actually we still were kinda screwed but y'know)

    Why not use Bandit's Trans Am?

    I would have helped more but had to back off so much in turns that I would have just lost draft anyway, so figured "sod it". Not way I wanted to end my season tbh.

    Was extremely difficult with a pad tbh, I thought it would be ok here but the wheel users were just able to drive underneath me while I was on full lock. Don't see why PD give us a shorter lock to lock than wheel users, makes no sense.

    Bit of a shame but never know until you run do ya? A new car for IROC4 is being tested by both me and Lancer to ensure wheel and pad-friendliness.

    I was flat the whole race. We need a car that can not have the pad drivers a half second off at Motegi and Indy because those 2 tracks need to be on the schedule. If the pad has the huge disadvantage, I don't want those on the schedule coming from someone who uses a G27. It can be done I'm sure.

    Yup, I mean for Motegi I made it work...

    Some thoughts - the Camaro will have different trim depending on the track. Flat floor for certain for Motegi, road courses may have less aero same with Daytona. It's about if we want a car thats aero loose or glued to the ground for Daytona.

    What about different tyre compounds?

    For Daytona we just want a car that allow us to run close together while avoiding cautions every other lap...

    Also what you think of my car suggestion? The grid would certainly look... "retro" :lol:

    Camaro is confirmed but I see where you come from :lol:

    With flat floor the Camaro is grippier - at Motegi you don't spin as easy on the apron. It'll be a little different as it'll be a specific tune for the car.

    Generic NASCAR-style spoiler by the way for the ovals, paintable wing for road courses.

    Think I'll buy 2 cars one for Ovals, and one for road courses.

    Did the same for this season (one for qualifier races, other for the feature ones). Apparently it worked... :sly:

    Not a bad idea. You wouldn't want to accidentally put on the wrong wing and get the wrath of Furi. :p

    Three podiums on ovals, two top 5's on road courses. Happy with that. Need to do better in the Q races!

    If both Daytona rounds were dropped, I would be in good shape!

    Keep it ovals next season. The racing is much better.

    Or at least more ovals than circuits :)

    Would probably have done better in the Feature had it not been for the pit exit boo-boo. :ouch:

    Good advice. ;)

    Because it's just a drafting crapshoot.

    And Indy with the current grip levels.

    And Motegi too assuming the setup works for pad users and wheel users

    Motegi and Indy are not flat out if Furi uses my specs.

    It feels a bit more like a real oval car, but with the lower aero it just doesn't turn as well.

    Ahh. That's cool then. As long as it's not plowing I'm okay with it

    A setup that nobody could run at full throttle in any circumstances would kick ass, but I'd still have to be convinced that the oppressed DS3 minority gets the fair chance they deserve. :(

    On the other note, wasn't @Andil implying he had a DS3? Then how come he was running so well at Motegi-tegi-tegi?
