For reverse grid there is always chance to do manual formation lap to get us in reverse grid order.
NURSE, RUN A HOT BATH! Sorry to hear that Paul, especially as you are going so well. Hopefully your body will be saying "Go on, it's fine" (or something like that) by eight.now muscles and bruises in places I didn't know I'd hurt are stiffening and twinging.
That's a good idea Jammy, and I'll definitely use it in future series, but after a lot of thought, I think it's more fair to leave things as they are. I really have messed about with the format a lot already.For reverse grid there is always chance to do manual formation lap to get us in reverse grid order.
You have, and yes please. I'd just done it myself on my old abacus, but it's nice to know that modern tech can still keep upEDIT: I've added this separate table with my interpretation of what car drivers have to use next. @Zolon32 let me know if 1) I've done this correctly and 2) whether you wish me to do that each week as part of the results download.
Well, I know I'm the prime suspect for bringing this up, please accept my apologies for swearing 🙂. Completely agree that they are needed, and Eau Rouge is a very good example.On the subject of penalties
The not knowing how much it wants you to slow down for, or for how long you need to keep at this unknown speed (and the resulting confusion this causes on track), is certainly a bit rubbish - and is really why I usually have it turned off.They are one of few flaws on this otherwise brilliant game
I did think that maybe I was probably towing you along a bit. But after awhile I thought that might be a little unfair to Jammy so eased aside. Plus after multiple laps by myself I wanted someone to 'race' against.Sadly I think Paul must have thought he was damaging my race so he pulled to the side in the main straight with a few laps to spare
😀 I didn't make the point with any one person in mind Joe, I was just aware that the penalties were causing a lot of pain at Sakkito. I got a warning myself and had to let a couple of Porsches past on the rise up to Not Spoon, where the Jag was absolutely mighty under normal circumstances. That hurt, until I blazed back past them on the run to the start/finish, tee he.Well, I know I'm the prime suspect for bringing this up, please accept my apologies for swearing 🙂.

They are one of few flaws on this otherwise brilliant game (another being kerbs, and the two conspire together very effectively).
I think that incident is what got him the Ferrari for Spa-Francorchamps, and that's not a small present
Had a go before, it's very tricky indeed. I found a dab on the brakes helped, nudging the weight forward a bit. With the Porsche having the engine at the back, I guess it's more prone to losing grip in the front tyres. The other long nosed, front engines cars might have an easier time of it.I tried a few practice laps last night in the Porsche and it took 5 attempts to get through Raidillon without oversteering at the top lefthander and crashing into the left wall. It gets really light through that section and the only way I could get it through was to lift substantially off the throttle almost all the way through. It is going to make for an interesting race through there with the different abilities and different handling characteristics of the cars.
Grim! For me the best way through is (with the car in 'stable' mode), have a lift on the approach to Eau Rouge, take a bit of the first kerb on the left, pick the throttle up (around 50%???) as the car bottoms out, then, avoiding the kerb on the right, nail the throttle to climb the hill. I sometimes need to back off a little, but not fully, momentarily, to contain the understeer, but then about 75% throttle over the top keeps the car steady... and GO! Along the straight, and blast past those dog-slow Nissans (But watch out for the Ferraris, the Mustang and the E-Type.)it took 5 attempts to get through Raidillon without oversteering at the top lefthander and crashing into the left wall.
I think they do Joe. The Nissan is a doddle. Mind you, it's only doing 35 MPH on the approach, so there's no surprise there 😀The other long nosed, front engines cars might have an easier time of it.
Its a bit quiet soo..
Was going to order this, but shipping wasn't included, so they can forget it!!

Sadly Xero, I have experienced that too. I sincerely hope that such damage doesn't have any noticeable effect on the driving characteristics of the car.Just did a single player race. And when the AI Drove my car out of the pits it bumped the wall and I had 4 damage on front aero before even exiting three pit lane. Anyone else experienced that?
Aaaaaargh! Napalm, I hope you're body gives that damned virus a bloody good kicking pronto fella. Flu is truly, truly horrible, and I wish you all the best. I'm sure that Mario, Salty, Jammy, and all the others who have their eye on the crown will deliberately take lowly places in the races this evening, so they don't benefit too much from your absence. Or maybe they won't...Guys, I wont race tonight. Got flu or some virus and it is second day I am in the bed
