Yeah the Holden sucks around here, rear end just doesn't wanna get settled and the power isn't there out the corners. It doesn't seem to like elevation change. I've tried braking before turning in to try get the weight over the front wheels but it just scrubs off so much time you end up a second off your own pace. that could just be me though. Gotta say the Merc's are stunning to drive around here so well behaved. gonna have to do a fuel run tonight. Gotta be able to get to the end of lap 24 :) 1 stop for the win boys!

I think ive got the pace for low 12s maybe very late 11s, but I always bugger up the 3 most important corners which lead onto the three long straights

The Ford's have a really good chance to take the win around here. I set my PB around here 12.4 in a Ford and it was quite a messy lap.

I reckon if I nailed a lap around here in the Ford it would easily be low 11s.

I've come to the realisation that I'll be missing Long Beach as I'm somewhere between Spain and France. Let's hope I've already ruined my title chances before that race :).

Was on rivals last night trying to beat the times and couldn't do it then decided to just have a mock race distance to figure out fuel and managed to get a 2.13.3 0.o my best time. go figure eh

Haven't done many laps but got a 12.3 with a fairly awful lap. Got the speed to do a mid 11, just need to be able to focus for a whole lap and not throw up every time I get to the kink. I think the Ford is gonna carry me a bit here though, not gonna lie. :smug::smug::smug::smug:

If I get the entire lap spot on, I think I can get into the 11s, but I think it would be a very rare occasion.

There's no way I can get the #9 into the 10s though, that's beyond my skill level.

Either it's simply because some of the best drivers are in the volvos or the volvos and fords have a nice advantage around this track.

I've driven the Ford around here and even messy laps are faster than my consistent merc times.

I tried to improve my time yesterday, didn't manage it. The Holden will do a 2:10, I've been on for one a couple of times. But it's frustrating to know that that's still nowhere near the ultimate pace.

Something I noticed was that the cars seems to accelerate better on low fuel. Seems obvious, but I didn't realise it really he much of an effect on this game.
