Sorry to break up the party but I'm not going to be able to make the next race, so its your turn Parcells to be Fitzy's team mate.

And this ladies and gentlemen is how you ruin an Irishman’s day in one easy sentence. So Parcells finally gets the call, woo hoo.

 

I told you the Alps would be yours Knight.

 

Parcells will be roughing it next week on a beach somewhere in the Dominican and will not be around until early Sunday morning on the day of the race at which time I’ll try to get some semblance of practice in so as not to disappoint Fitzy too much but he’ll probably still be disappointed. smiley

 

Please tell me the Renault team does not have a HP handicap for the next race and if you can’t do that please advise on the % I should practice with should I get the chance.

 

Snappy: If you plan on switching the direction of the next race you need to confirm ASAP.

 

Fitzy/Paps: I’ll assume when I log into XBox Live on April 29 either or both of you will have gifted me the Alps tune…thanks. (p.s. xxSitement could also benefit from the next races tune for the privateers race if you think about it).

 

And what is it with these Irishmen and there drive to get under Parcells skin? Did Fitzy put you up to this Knight? You jokers keep trying.

Trust me Parcells I am dieing to get the call and show that Fitzy the colour of my tail lights. I love watching him overcook corners in his desperation to put the upstart in his place cheeky

Reverse the track? I have put hours into nailing it in reverse...and there are uphill sections in both directions. Oh well I am always practicing wrong tracks or wrong cars so I suppose I'm used to it.

My fault I thought the next race was on May 6th.   I can make the Alps race but not the Silverstone race.  Sorry for the confusion guys.

Since people have been already practicing I think we should keep it as originally planned. I haven't started myself but that is only fair. Just my opinion.

Also, I think both Ford cars in the Manufacturer's series are now open. Sharkfan has not participated in the last two events and Kurupt had to bow out. So two guys could move into the series permanently. Dai Bongo is driving the Ford int he privateers so he should have first dibs.

sWhite is probably the obvious second choice, there is no doubt he would have qualified for a factory team had he been in at the start....Nothing to do with the fact I can't keep up with him of course laugh

Nah, they ain't all that fast.  Hell, I finished 5th w/ them last week. 

 

 

 

 

Of course we'll overlook the fact I was running 9-10th most of the race and then benefited from the big wreck on lap 29.  blush

Oh there is no doubt in my mind I can make a factory team, last time I was away and didn't get enough track time and was pipped at the post...but to get my own back on that sWhite fellow could take a little longer smiley

Hi 

Parcells has mentioned in a previous post about a tune for the Renault Megane for next weeks race (ALP's). 

Is this tune available, or is that something everybody has to do on their own?   Not sure how it all works.

Thanks

One of the Magane factory drivers will spot this and sort you out mate.

I am still waiting on a tune from Pap, as soon as I get it I will send it to you. I will send you the tune from the Nurburgring GP race as It is the one I have been running on the Alps.

A Nurbrurgring tune seems a good all around one, I used ours to get a good time at Suzuka, my time on this track seems solid using the same tune, and I have run the car in other races on other tracks and done well...Who knew? well except everyone I expect, but it's news to melaugh

Thanks.   Not sure what tune the car has now,  I received the car from Parcells for the Suzuka race.   I tried the ALP's today, handled as well there as it did at Suzuka.  

Sounds like I might already the Nurburgring tune.

Hey Fitzy,

Thanks for the tune.  Took at least a second off my lap time, but most importantly l was a lot smoother and consistent.

Knight, can you send me a tune for the Alps race please, the SEAT tune I have is for Suzuka, I have extened the gearing a little as was hiting limiter quite quickly, but I struggle with a lot of understeer throught the fast bends, so maybe the tune you have is more suited to the track, I need to run a good practise session on this before sunday, will probably give it a couple of hours tonight, thanks in advance

I'm using the Nurburg tune, if you don't have it I'll send it to you. But maybe our factory mates have sorted one for the Alps? though as I seem to be top of the leaderboard for the STCC cars that have posted times so far, that tune must be pretty spot on.

The alps is not going to be a nice track for the Mazda.  The skinny tires are killing it in the sweepers.  I was a full 4 seconds off stevies yesterday.....and stevies was running w/ a 10% HP reduction.  surprise

 

I'm having to brake and drop a gear where everyone else can get a way w/ a slight lift of the throttle.  Going to be ugly.  I'll be glad to get this one behind me.  Damage control.

yes if you could send me the Nurburg tune I would appreciate it, see if I can get anywhere close to you, not really run any serious times so far because of time restrictions this week, but going to give it a real workout tonight and tomorrow.
