@Bryan_F as you were seeking feedback on the BoP last might I had a thought about the power-to-weight ratios at play.
I'm not sure what your initial BoP intent was, but working toward giving each car the same power/weight ratio I came up with the following.
Either, fix the initial power and adjust weight to achieve a p:w ration of 0.280 or fix the initial weight and adjust power to achieve the same. I'm leaning towards fixing the power, adjusting the weight then that makes the ballast penalties easier to manage from a given starting weight.
Thanks for the insight. If only it was as easy as equalizing power to weight. The TT seems to have an advantage over the others on equal power and weight. And GT Sport’s adjustments are rough, in 1% increments only. I’m happy with the weight as is (before penalty ballast), so I’ll probably adjust the RCZ’s power down by 1% for next round.
@JonoStan96 is pretty good at BOP I've heard.
Does that make him the "Big Bopper"
He's a questionable bloke, but ok at BoP
Indeed, the slider isn't overly accurate . Curses!
It was a fun night in the end.
Qualifying I was 1.3s off pole and thought I was in for a rough night, but lack of practice meant I was improving with every lap during the race, and ended up getting a PB only a few tenths off the overall FL.
First race I picked up a couple spots from my qually position to finish 6th.
Second race I was on target for a podium until I dropped a wheel into the grass on the final lap with a few corners to go and dropped back to 8th
Third race I caught up to the pack of 3 RCZ's battling for 2nd and eventually made a move into the right hairpin to pass all 3 of them! That made my night, then held off oz and russ to keep 2nd
Peugeot RCZ: Power - was 104% - 358 bhp now 103% - 355 bhp
Penalty ballast for Round 2 (based on championship positions at the end of Round 1)
1st: Bryan 108% - 1323 kg
2nd: @Russell 107% - 1310 kg
3rd: @Noremac 115% - 1293 kg
4th: @Viperzed 105% - 1286 kg
5th: @Hatfield 121% - 1270 kg
Sorry to everyone I murdered last night, down on my luck and skill lately, fingers crossed we’ll be back firing on all cylinders next week
You introduced me to parts of the track I'd not seen before.
I had fun there last night in the middle race managing to hang onto the back of the mid pack for most of the race. In the 5 min break, went downstairs got a cup of tea, quick chat to the wife, came back for the last race and couldn't string two consistent laps together. Go figure!
3 things certain in life, death, taxes and 50% of the grid vanishing for Round 2 of a ROOZ community event
Was almost about to say I’ve gotten my mojo back but I did have a car significantly lighter than the other fronttunners so it’s a bit of a false dawn. Still nice to have a pair of 1st places to get the confidence levels back up!
Was a really fun night of racing. Jono was flying. But Bryan ozglen and myself had some really fun battles. Bryan race 3 was a epic!
