    Team FCR are looking for a fill in for Spa this Saturday 21 July.
    If you want to drive the Porsche GTE please send me a private message.
    Cheers

    I have a question for everyone.

    I know that we are meant to stick with the cars we chose at the beginning of the series but I’m asking if we can change the Porsche GTE for the Ferrari GTE from Spa onwards.
    The reasons being that the Porsche is very difficult to tune for a stable setup, with the rears overheating and making the thing slide through corners and handle like a dog. Also the comparative speed difference between the Porsche and the other GTE cars. It’s good that each car is different and stronger in different ways but when it comes to drivability of the Porsche it’s just not there.

    Overall I’m looking for a more competitive race with whomever takes the Porsche seat and right now it’s just not there. We already have enough Fords and Corvettes so I was just hoping for the Ferrari.

    I wouldn’t ask this unless we were struggling and I’m struggling to get a tune that makes the thing stably let alone fast.

    I’m after a majority vote or an over ruling vote so if you’re against this please let me know. I’d like to get this sorted ASAP.
    Cheers.

    I agree with the idea of a vote, I guess the question is what are we voting on? Just to allow 1 team the ability to make this one change or should it be that all teams have the option to change 1 car mid season?

    I would also like to float an idea that may hopefully improve room stability. Over the past number of weeks I have been having terrible trouble with getting disconnected mid-session. I have done everything I can to eliminate network issues of my own, but it seems like whenever I am in a private lobby, I get booted. But today I was in several public lobbies and didn't get disconnected once.
    From what I have seen, it is possible to have a public lobby with a password required to enter, I was wondering if it would be worth trying this to see if it improves room stability.

    Sorry bout that punt Gary, I was to focused on Juzzy having a jolly good spin off the track having a quiet chuckle and then boom. I can be a bit of a goober at times and for that I apologize lol.

    Hope all had a decent session, definately a learning curve for me as :):):):) I get a bit nervous with the LMPs coming fast at in that middle session kinda in two minds and worried about when we might cross, gotta snap out of that and as ya say Benny as long as run our lines we'll be fine.

    See ya boys during the week

    I like the idea of a team being able to change 1 car at any point in the season but once changed your team has no more options to change. This helps if someone didn't get a chance to do a lot or any testing in the car they picked.
    As you said last night Benny, an additional change after the first free hit would incur a points penalty.

    We could also do it on a case by case basis if only a single team needs/wants to like in Team FCR's case. The Porsche is a dog to drive and we wouldn't be going to the fastest cars in class being the Ford or Corvette, just to another Ferrari to help with drivability.

    Is there any other team or driver that would want to use this free hit to change car if it's available? Let's see the numbers.

    No worries mate. It was going to take about 2 mins to fix the damage, and I didn't feel like driving around by myself all night.

    I'm happy with you making the change if needed or anyone for that matter, I agree that the Porshche is pants.

    I was gonna say I thought the Ferrari lacked top end but seems on par with the Vette/Ford judging off times from youtube and I think you had it running pretty quick at Daytona didn;t ya Spidey?

    I'm happy for the Porsche to be swapped for the ferrari in this case however I thing this should be the only time a swap can be implemented - all other chosen cars remain as yours for the rest of this series.
