    YES. I don’t pay too much attention to what tires I use as the only time I care about them is when I’m in the rain.

    I use MT gears ,changing about 5-6 rpm to leave the beast sleeping .
    Verdict : this car is totally uncontrollable using pad , the body roll is very high and just one wrong move on straight line and you're out .
    You guys are unbelievable , respect .

    It's not how it looks. I ran the "restart game" for a while, with a really promising run up until Hedwigshöhe or Wippermann, where I didn't quite brake enough, or something. That stung. Also had the race display off for a good part of it, and put it back on at the beginning of lap two. The part at or after Tiergarten went reasonably, I may have braked early but at least I got out, into the pit entry turn, without going under 81. The last corner I remained at 80 km/h. I didn't get excited because I knew the first two or three sectors weren't anything special, just like they weren't previously. I was mostly behind the invisible ghost, not considerably ahead before the right-right leading to the back straight.

    At least today the Klostertal blind fast right was confusing, because I must have had a bad line through the previous corner and then went successfully full throttle through it, which typically puts the car to the barrier, or out of track enough to be slower.

    I did confuse some today, thought I was further along. I can't remember if that was a good lap.

    I'll write my splits when I'll drive next time, I think you are faster than me on some and I'm faster than you on others.. for example I think at your 4.02 I had as low as 3.58..but beetween 5.33 and 6.04 you do something much faster because I think I even had 5.29 on that split.. also 1st one you are ~1 sec slower than me..

    I hope I'll have time to try to beat you Paddy at least in 1 of Alfa or Ferrari on Sunday.
    Also if someone is interested in getting under 7.40 with something else, I think RUF BTR could be close to BB, it'd be great race if we still had online.. I did one fast lap but was tired and didn't push it to limits and did 7.41 but much time was left.. I think maybe similar times are possible but very different driving style, RUF is more predictable but oversteers (obviously) more on places where you can flat out a Ferrari.

    edit.. Also I tried to beat you Paddy on 100% wet with cars you drove but I just don't have enough concentration this days

    I just realized I haven't seriously done "100% wet" laps, that is, especially with comfort tyres. I have lap of 10:18 with the BTR, but with sports-hard. That was five years ago, so I bet under ten is not very out there.

    Still such a big difference to the next. But that's how it goes here, with a lot of tries to get something together. YMMV.
    Best T1, very likely since beginning, was 48.125, on a later and stopped short, try.

    I loved the ring event... spent a lot of time on it. Learnt loads. Proud of my result.

    I hated the no-tune .. fell asleep, literally contained everything I hate ..slow car. . wrong drive wheels, imaginary track. I am not even going to post an entry.

    I regret not entering the school... tried it tonight... so much fun. Wish I had tried it earlier. I will struggle to get an entry filmed now.

    Me ,@bjl23 ,@RMan72 we are pad users at the game and that gives me the right to know how damn hard is that challenge .
    Ok deffinetly someone must know the track and they are many peoples that adore that track more than any other ,but that doesn't change a thing about how damn hard is to run that " compo".
    So ,that gives me the right again to pay my respect to that Elegant soul with the scary nickname .
    The same applies to the rest of the guys of course ,but am dead sure that in case of difficulty ,pad driving on this one is way more hard than what a wheel user can imagine.

    So that makes Hugh a hero for me ( again ) .

    @slybynight don't be upset with your self ,you did great and talking aboutThe Saint we all know that is able to give us BIG surprises at some challenges ,especially to those he likes and Green hell is among them.

    I know I do great sometimes. I tried the pad again, the other day just for a laugh.... I found it utterly unusable. I can't begin to imagine how difficult it must be on a twitchy car. .. but having said that, I still think it can go "lock to lock" quicker than a wheel.

    The sunlight washes out the contrast! But there's affirmation below the board. I forgot to look at splits (which are saved), but despite running only against a Sunday ghost, I have a feeling that lap was mostly "many low" instead of a few very low.

    The wheel is not as fast as the pad. I use a wheel cuss I like the feel of racing and with it I am at home.

    Same here. I don't care if I am slower or faster on a wheel. For me its all about the realism. Speaking of which..... picked this little reclining fellow up today.....

    Quite pleased for the podium finish at school again .
    Congratulations to the winners and especially to @RMan72 who did a hell of a time at Goodwood with another " bitch" car on the game.
    As for @Thematic and his outstanding performance on Ring ..... :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:
    Here is my school submission , looking forward to what next round will bring.


    Have a good week guys.
