    SNAIL HOLIDAY EVENT

    Thanks to all who participated. The 1 Hr at the ring was a bit of a bummer with the pit stop issues. The other two races were different. At least Grand Turismo reduced the dust level so you can see where you go all the time. If anybody wants to run a Monthly Friday Series of Rally Races let us know and we will help you set it up

    I collected some data and you can find it here

    Check out this video where good driving between me and @Rob Brown resulted in a good pass in a difficult spot. Rob was still off balance a bit from going off before the turn, but managed to keep the inside line. My move was risky, but it paid off because there was a responsible driver on the inside.

    I really enjoyed the two rally races. The Raptor was more fun than I expected (once tested it on asphalt for a prize B car and it was amazingly boring).

    Have yet to be able to make 1 successful lap in that vehicle. Doubt that I will ever get it figured out.

    Sadly I will not be able to attend. I will be sitting around a campfire with a beverage of a scottish nature and a cuban friend to go along with it.

    Man, what a hard car to manage! It's not F1 2018 but it's still an insight into how involved these machines are to operate, let alone drive at/near the limit.

    I put it down to minimum power and made it a GP2/Formula 2 car :lol:

    I did the 30 laps of monza in the Corvette it nets around 440,000 if you win

    If you rubber-band an X-Bow at max power limited weight, RH front RSS rear tires, against Gr. 4 at Blue Moon Speedway, you can easily get the amount you need and a little extra. Just set it up to run while you sleep and get a good 6-8 hours in.

    I will try to attend this practice. I need to see whether my crashing issue has been resolved. If my issue is fixed, I would like to participate in this race on Sunday.

    I posted in the main thread too. If you want to turn on Traction Control, let me know. We want to spend most of the time ON the track

    I would like the option for Traction Control to be set to on because when i did the GT League races in either car, it was hard to not spin out with traction set at 0.

    I ran a few laps today without traction control. Really the only problem was the chicane in turn 1. If can get yourself to gradually apply the throttle you can get a clean get away.....just don't mash it...you will spin out

    ....and if you catch the curb on the second chicane.... and if you are too quick on the gas in the Lesmos or the parabolica.... especially if your tires are getting towards 20 Laps and more....:sly:

    Looks like the room is filling up nicely. I will play the airlines game and overbook by a couple of seats because we know life happens and there is always someone that misses the plane for whatever reason. If there is a sudden rush we need to consider a second room. If it is only a couple over 16 we can prioritize by those who said "Yes" vs "Maybe". We can also do two Knock-out quallys instead of the Q1 , Q2, Q3 format. Let's see what it looks like by Sunday morning coffee time
