    How good is this place , champions all of you from all devisions Super respectful, really happy to to be apart of it , just a big thank you to all involved.

    I have been playing racing games and online shooters for years but have not seen anything like this within a community , racing games just don't have this .
    Once again I can get on any day of the week with people from any given devision and enjoy every minute of it .
    It's pretty special for me . May sound strange from a old guy like me but at the end of the day it gives my online experience a
    Pretty meaningful experience that can't be matched.

    My first season has been :):):):) as a driver but everything else has been sublime .

    for those of you yet to hear, the new patch has hit and available to download....

    i have tested very briefly this morning, and it would seem that the tyre model has changed, giving some pretty high temps for this weeks round at Indy Road.

    I am planning on doing a few race runs tonight, and may look at changing the date to get a cooler than 57* track temp to keep the tyres in check a little more....

    If really keen for a run tonight let me know, or keep an eye out for me online from about 9 sydney time.

    Is it too late to validate if pit stops are now viable?

    What a round to bring back pit stops. I could have a whole beer in the time it takes to do a service!

    I just tried it. The front left seems to get to 120 after about 3 laps in qualifying!

    yeah, i only did a quick 6 laps today and the front left was like something you find inside a volcano ! It will just be a case of adjusting the time of year to get the track temp to mid 30s i think ...or there abouts.

    ok everyone....after testing last night we have come up with a much better, non tyre melting date etc for this weeks race,....

    race date is now 1/10/17
    Qual at 5pm
    Race start at 6pm

    The tyre temp were heaps better, front left got to about 110 before dropping down again.....Track temp at about 31*

    Other things we found were
    - Seemed to be more slip stream
    - The rear of the car was a little looser it seemed...
    - If you have PS Pro you can adjust the graphic / framerate levels in options
    - There were drivers who had a different level of fuel it seemed for qual....we dont have a work around for this at the moment, nor do we know why it's happened.
    - we didn't test the pit stops to see if any change, however i have seen somewhere written that having 'manual pit stops on' can have an effect on what happens in the pit lane. We will test this after the season to see if we can get it to work
    - Kart has a direct line to Ryan Story

    Will be testing again later tonight after work xmas party, hopefully with a full race distance, if any changes will let you know....

    Further to my post above guys i have just tested with @Nathan Storrier , @Ant_427 @annelorrianne and @arnold watson and we found that with teh tyre settings on "accelerated" wear, there was terrible clipping from about lap 20, and it got progressively worse as the race went on....
    SO, i just tested with the wear on "AUTHENTIC" and it was perfect.....All temps were as previously tested (FL max of about 110*) and the wear was fine with no clipping at all....

    So @v8power383 along with the change of date also run tyre wear on Authentic...

    The other thing i found was that in qual if you jump to pit, it auto sends your fuel to the amount in your pit strat ... i need to test a little more, but for me i ended on 95L after jumping back into pit during qual.....The race fuel was fine for everyone.

    We also found that even though the fuel was not burning off, the lap times seemed to indicate the weight was coming off the car.....For the first few laps the brake zone is at about the 500 m mark with the added weight...;)

    Good luck tonight, the track grip goes up and down ..... PLEASE be careful turn 1 and don't ruin someone's night....

    Actually I was having a sip of my beer and touched the wall...
    Maybe next season I might stop having a drink during the races and give everyone a descent run for their money..
    We have he closest series for div 1 I have ever had the privilege to be in.
    Too bad we weren't there to challenge for the title this season
    Thanks again to all. It's been a privilege

    Must be mentioned we had to have a restart and do a formation lap for the rolling start, hence the overall time.

    Last night was a pretty important one for me to win, turning the championship into my hands with 1 round to go :eek::eek:
    Got a great jump on Slambo on the rolling start which relieves the pressure for a lap or so unfortunately captain late braking (AKA @AOCleaner74) gave me a nudge and we both lost a couple of spots :cautious: Managed to get by poppin and then Slambo spin which gifted me the lead.
    Ao put up a hell of a fight for 20 laps and got past me before driving into a wall in a straight line and giving me a sniff into T1, unfortunately for him he got to adventurous trying to get back past and spun it.
    Drove quite conservatively from there but still managed to spin after focusing to much on Stozza when lapping for the 2nd time after being nearly taken out first time around :confused:
    @nigegunz got incredibly unlucky with @Blindman’s spin from a lap down and I was able to round Nige up as he recovered from the collision. Props to nige once again for a fantastically driven race, 2nd place two rounds running...that win is coming...I’ll make sure of it ;)
    Bring on COTA, the championship’s going down to the wire :thumbsup::unsure:
