    These cars can be changed if people don't like them. Let me know. Just thought I'd shake things up a bit.:)

    Yep, that suits the cars much better, still recommend taking out the rear ARB, softening the rear springs, and taking some pressure out of the tyres, then it's half manageable.

    Not a bad track either, apart from the horrendous pop-in trucks heading to Maggotts.

    I'm enjoying the challenge of these. Definitely requires lots of setup changes.

    Me and Robert really enjoyed the F1s@Longford combo. These cars were the reason I got into rF2 back in 2012 and we have both done many league races with them, even if it was a couple of years ago :D So a classic combo for us! Sadly he fell back after a bad start and I didn't have much competition. But if was fun anyway, the track itself is challenging enough.

    I recently gave my old G27 wheel to Robert, so he's still getting used to driving these cars with H-shifter and using heel-toe technique instead of sequential shifter and auto-blip. So I guess I had an advantage since I'm used to it :oops::rolleyes:

    Won't make it to Silverstone, but it seems a fun combo too. See you the weekend after, hopefully.

    Might have a nice little surprise then, in a couple of weeks.;)
    After the Dissenters we will be back to the F3 for at least a week.
    The surprise may involve a non workshop track. I will post the link when needed.:)(that means after I have had a million laps practice first.....:p:))

    I'm interested, count me in.
    Saturdays are my best bet for some calm racing.
    Should be fun!

    Ah, ok. Thank you, I didn't know that the server is actually running the Dissenters.

    Those Dissenters provided better racing than I expected, given how tricky they are to keep near the limit. Still, there were enough offs that we generally elected to slow and wait to keep having a race of it, and at the end I found myself behind Cookie into the final chicane so I had to give it a go, ended up being the last to lose control and therefore 'won' it. Good fun on the right sort of tracks, but steep learning curve.

    Looking forward to getting back to the F3s this week :)

    Sometimes I think data acquisition isn't a good thing. Did a few laps here to reacquaint myself, felt like I hooked it up pretty well, and then thought oooh, might compare to last time we raced here, I should still have the logs.

    Yep. 11 months ago. Same laptime within 0.01s. Hopefully with more rubber I can actually improve :oops:
