@@Noztra @@hinesy32

Failing to inform a coordinator about absence will result in getting demoted to the back of the reserve list! If you are reserve and will not be able to race, you have to inform us as well!

To prevent any chaos just before the server is open, we decided that the deadline to inform us that you are not able to race is 1 hour before server is open (18:30 UK time) But, of course, if you know that you are not going to race, tell us as soon as possible.

Also, in case of emergency, if a main driver let us know very close to that deadline, that for some reason he is not able to race, we will ask the next reserve driver in line and he will have 10 mins to confirm if he will race or not.

For all reserves, please, write us, or in this thread, that you are available to race as soon as possible so we have a list of reserves who can race if any main driver drops out.

I've done some practice laps and a race with the AI.

I've noticed 3 things:
  1. Into the first corner the car's back can easily losing grip. I set the front wing to 0 and the issue almost disappeared. Did anyone experience this?
  2. With 23 AI I get high cpu occupancy message at the start.
  3. After the start finish line I get strange sorting in the places every lap. It lasts until the pit exit. I hope it won't impact the quali and the race results.
    I use Crew Chief and it detects the new lap under the bridge.

I know we have to pit for fuel in these endurance races but do we need to change the tyres as well or can they last for the whole race?

My experience: the laptimes doesn't differ a lot with full tank/new tires and little fuel/warn tires. But if you change tires when you refuel, you can be way faster with the new tires (with about half tank).

In the game your pitcrew changes tires and refuel simultaneously and on top the tire change is faster then the refueling. So it's always better to change tires in these endurance races :)

I can confirm your issues with the setup of the car. With 2/4 downforce it's horrible through T1/T2. Got a lot better when I followed your instructions and went out with 0/4 downforce.
Made some more improvements to the setup. For my liking the toe at the front axle is much too positive and that is one reason for the slow turn in of the car. Set the toe at the front axle to 0 makes the car more agile, decreases temperatures and gives more speed on the straights because rolling resistance is lower. On top of that I setted the camber at the front axle to -3.4 deg to have more lateral grip in the corners. This helps to reduce the understeer into the corners.

Would be nice if you could change the setup for Monday @Noztra . At least you should change downforce and front axle toe :)

@Noztra would it be possible to get a confirmation of whether it's likely the setup will be changed with the suggestions above, or if we're keeping the same one? Just so I know what to practice with if I decide to do a few laps again after my F1 race tonight :)

I don't have time to test the changes to the setup, but I trust @exited, so we will be using the setup with his changes.

Is the new setup ready to download or will we be getting it today? Would be useful to have it for some practice ?

Is it normal for my lap time delta to be stuck on the same number surely it should be like updating all the time but I'm practising now and it just says -0.009 the whole time?

Sidekick shows the right delta, though at the start finish straight it shows strange values.

Unfortunately it's looking like I wont make this one. My sciatica has been really bad this last 24-36 hours and sitting for anything more than 30 minutes is really uncomfortable. Also, I still haven't been able to fix my wheel issue. Hopefully be back next week. Have a great race everyone.

@Noztra I'm going to sit this one out tonight, it's far to hot here to be racing and I'm not focused enough anyway. Be better to let a reserve take the spot for me
