F1 Senna Equivalent
- May 20, 2016
Try being stuck doing high 37's in general I was getting frustrated but all I starting doing was laughing after a while, as the thing is my car is handling and behaving itself generally well around here but it just lacks the power, (I mean hell I tried the Audi for a lap just for a comparison and I was 2-3 tenths faster in S1 alone which is one corner connecting 2 hills basically lol) and throw in the other big issue I have where I'll need probably to refuel quite a fair bit compared to everyone else, its just giving me a mountain to climb in the feature and any chance of a podium is highly unlikely.Don't worry, nobody is even close to them times either. Mid 37s is a push lap, and maybe low 37s if you get slipstream.
I was really hoping the Hyundai would be a clear second best here, but I'm really struggling in S2, it's got nothing in the corners and the gearbox is so long I can't even reach 6th gear.
Though its my own fault, I didn't really give fuel consumption much consideration in my car choice this season, simply because the recent updates seemed to level the playing field in fuel consumption (definitely in Gr.3 and I thought in Gr.4 as well to a degree) but something I didn't factor in at all was a car's capability of being able to save fuel and still make good lap times, and the Toyota 86 just doesn't afford that luxury and is one of the worst (jury is still out on the FT1), but I'll try make the best of it.
Anyway HRG and his Audi has to be the clear favourite on thursday and will be extremely tough for anyone to beat, not only does it have the one of the best top speeds around here, (out of our cars) but if Brands Hatch is anything to go by HRG won't need to refuel either, and that's could be a key factor in the feature. (as not taking any fuel compared to taking fuel for even just 1 litre is 3 seconds in a pitstop)
However something that I think HRG is already fully aware of and probably his only genuine concern is that Audi seems terrible off the line (even worse then my Toyota), so even if he puts it pole if the likes of Stevo, Browneskii & Hasnain are all starting in the top 4, HRG will likely drop to 4th before T1 I would've thought and that is the only saving grace that'll make a race of it in my opinion.
