    Hello gents and maybe a lady or two. I'm gonna give this a go today and see if I'm of any worth :dopey:

    I've always liked the ford gt especially the old one in gt3 so not a bad time to give a whirl. Should be an interesting garage sale or at minimum a flail. Looking forward to getting back with you all.

    :cheers:

    Had a quick go in the GTLM this morning and have to say it's a loads better than I expected it to be. Sure, it's slippery off the power - especially while turning/braking at the same time - but it's quite manageable.

    I think the key to this one is a decent set up (front DF lower, lower rear ride, some +ve rear toe), and then being incredibly smooth with the steering... any sort of quick steering movements at speed just get the rear loose.

    I'll post some splits when I get a proper run in it.

    I've no official splits to post yet but I figured it a good idea to tells ya where I'm at more or less. I have know idea about t2 but my t1's are ranging from 53.8 to 55.2 .... yup I'm pretty slopy atm.

    Getting the hairpin right is a big key as I can gaine or loose tons there, 130r is not bad but I loose there too somtimes.

    I'm chugin away and I'll have splits soon :tup: Great combo Sjaak :D right up the shoot.

    After Erik's return I next hope for Cyril to be back with us but I'm afraid he's got his bottom stuck in Forza (maybe even more so after it's version 3 release after summer) and will stay there until GT5 shows up :D

    Board update.

    No splits or submission from me this week. The LM is too much a beast for me to handle, and I still have to prepare for my final Event 03 race against ZippyUK (if and when he shows up :)).

    If I can get this thing to stop steering for me, I might get a decent lap.
    It just want to turn so much and then the rear goes I can't do that' and goes for a merry slide. I consider myself a fairly smooth steerer, and i am having great difficulty stopping it from doing what seems a natural chassis trait, very unatural for me.

    Looks like I still have a few seconds needed to gain but I think I can come somewhat close to that if I keep plugging away. Best part is I'm running all controled and proper like ;)

    Hey Jake, nice to see you here running some laps. ;)

    Tonights session felt really good driving the GT around, really enjoyable. Thanks Sjaak. :tup:
    It may be that I haven't been in this car since Spec II but it seemed alot easier to drive, especially tonight.
    I think my opinion of these Ford GT's will change after this combo.
