I've found a workaround for my sounds problem so I should be here for this one...
I have good hope the Renault will shine in these conditions. Fingers crossed!

I think it should be much below the 110 mark... I'll try to find something on this.

yeah I was recalling from experiences with pc1 I've just done some testing and my tyres are in the 60 to 70 range in pc2 seems like the wet weather driving has been completely overhauled compared to the first game ignore my original post

Yeah I think it's around 80-85 max.
Above that, after a spin for example, the tyres are all over the place.

Feeling less optimistic after the patch. Car doesn't feel quite as good.

Like @Vernux said, what do you think about making the qualifications 20min long and wait 5 min in pits to allow the track to get fully wet?
If we don't, first guys out will be 1-2s faster than the guys back in the pits...

If we run the usual 5 minute practice before qualifying, will that saturate the track? Is the wetness carried over from P to Q? I've done laps with up to 4 seconds difference according to how wet the track is, and it's likely to continue to get worse after 5 minutes, so it's gonna be a throw of the dice regardless.

From my training and the social race, I can do 1 or 2 good laps. After that, the track will get much more saturated.
IIRC, my laptimes were almost equal after that point. 15 minutes is not enough to change the track condition dramatically BUT the 5 first minutes make a huge difference...

But well, whatever. Let's hope for a good pit box spot :D
