We already have 4 spots available boys.

my schedule says you're available for this week? Obviously you're on the reserve list now, but I'd just like to know if you're back for this race. If so then this is giving all 5 reserves a chance to grab one of the 4 spots at the minute.

I suspect we will have a couple of extra spots if my suspicions of people who won't turn up is correct anyway. But I'll let you know accordingly.

It's mad how much of a difference the car in question affects track like-ability.

I've only driven this track a couple of times in the Formula Renault, and it's not been a track I particularly like. It's just awful really.

I've done 9 laps practice here in the Ferrari and I'm really quite enjoying it. I think this Ferrari just looks after you far more than any other car on iRacing. It's by far my favourite car on there and I just enjoy driving it.

Also this is going to be another track that's going to be a nightmare to race on. The only heavy braking zone is uphill on a bend on a narrowing part of the track with little run-off if it all goes wrong.

rip overtaking.

As Stevie said this uphill braking zone is really tricky, the whole track is a big challenge but this corner is the peak of the track :D
Normally I hate this track but it´s quite funny in the Ferrari :blackalien:

Yeah, the back of the car is all over the place. I had a real sweet setup for the Ford at Suzuka and then after the update I cant get comforable
Increase the TC?

Also how's the baseline? The Ferrari baseline is pretty good, and generally what I start with whilst I'm waiting for VRS?

I will give baseline a go in a while. Never really thought to try it tbh

Just driven this track for the first time. I really like the flow of the track, but racing wheel to wheel is not going to be easy. I expect the stewards to busy this week;)

Completely agree... Before the update I felt that the Ferrari had a tiny advantage, however since the update the Ford is all over the place and lacking pace #shouldhavegoneferrari;)

The hosted session I was just in had 9 Fords and over 40 Ferraris with the fasted Ford 1.2 off the best Ferrari......:sorry:

Sorry for the rant and to be fair this is exactly why @StevieSQ wanted to keep it to a one car championship:hilarious: #shouldhavelistened

But to be honest, they started out pretty even, but to fix the random damge problem on the Ford, they just said "yeah, we will just raise it up, should be fine"...

I expect you all to behave this week, and next week, and next week, and next week until forever.

My biggest worry is that since the update there has been no word on rebalancing the Ford back to its previous state despite the obvious disadvantage. We are only 4 weeks into the championship and it will kill me if we have to wait until the end of the iRacing season for any changes:dead:
