Sorry I just don't see it that way. Raced to many times with you. Your only limited by yourself. You always find a way to get faster,  just have to spend time to figure it out.

Thanks to Grim for hosting, Wheels, Driveby, and mlbguy for showing up and running tonight.

I had to have a short night myself. 

 

The 600 was a little difficult for me this time around, just need more practice.

Jimmy....Good Running Last Night...Educational to Say the Least on 3G's New Light Starts...Running a Corvette and starting off with a 5 second penalty was automatic last place running with you heathens...laugh...Lucky for me I switched up to the Ferrari that overcame the still 5 second penalty I was getting but did not gurantee a win..laugh...Need more practice with those starts!!...WTFsurprise

P.(arcell)S....Looking forward to a slower next week..600PP is nice and intense but need more practice to stay off the walls!wink

P.(arcell)S.S...Jimmy...You were DEAD ON about that GTR-12....Put a Snow PLow on that Bitch and Make Some Money!!!surprise

Is Parcells to surmise that Grimm tested the updated "false grid start" option for your races last night?

So is the deal if you press the gas before the "go" you stay at the start line for 5 seconds?

I was considering testing this tonight...what is the general consensus??? yay or nay

Parcells...It's Your Call...Just Because I am 0 For 4 on getting it right doesn't mean others might wish to give it a go!wink...Just remember the learning curve is BRUTAL!!!!...laugh

P.(arcell)S..I Thought Pressing the Gas at Go would be the answer...It Wasn't...Maybe what 3G's said...Foot on the Brake...I didn't...I just hovered over the gas...Didn't work!!!....Also I am wondering if you don't use a clutch will you be sitting at the line like me for 5 seconds EVERY time.surprise

Yep 3G's tested the new starting lights, 1st start was a disaster for all of us but I got the hang of for the rest of the starts.  Foot on brake until the start logo comes on. The lights do not go green the red disappears and the start logo comes up. There is a different time delay of the start so don't go when the lights go out. There is a 5 sec. penalty for jumping the start.

3G also brought out the new BMW. Good looking car, his is black. I got mine right after the races, mine is white, red and blue.  He was complaining of understeer, I haven't checked it out yet.

Instead of a countdown of 3...2..1... Start,  you now have a series of red lights that turn on. During this time, you MUST keep your foot on the brake (you can use the accelerator to get the RPM's up but you need to keep your foot on the brake also). Once all the lights are on, at a random interval, the lights will go out/the word Start will appear.  You can't take your foot of the brake until the lights go out/Start appears.  If you jump the start, its a 5 second penalt.

As for the BMW, it seems to have some mid corner understeer that I need to work out.  The biggist issue I had was the time when letting off the brake and applying the gas, the car just seemed to push a bit more than others during the time.

I may try to start dropping in occasionally through the summer.  Some of the main GBR series I'm running (rFactor on PC) are going to be winding down over the month and a half and won't really be picking back up until September.

Won't be there tonight though...got a 45 minute race @ Interlagos in a Lambo GT3 in a Blancpain series.  devil
