This maybe a silly question but wanna ask. I know we don't have mechanical failures, so is safe to say you don't have to have you radiator and brake ducts open at all?
The radiator I have closed, the brake ducts I think have an impact on the performance of your brakes in terms of them over heating, so I have them open at certain levels depending on the track.
As @zoglug said: the radiator can be closed, I have my at 10%. Brake duct is very important to set so that the brakes don't get too hot or too cold. Brakes should be between 450-600 C.

The M3 is really nice at Brno :)

that will mean that everyone else needs to do a three stop because the way you conserve your tires is just beyond me
The wheel does make a difference I think but I have comfortably made a 1 stop work at every race so far and I'm using the pad. My wear has probably been a bit worse but not that bad I have to make extra stops

Well managed to get tires to last till 16 laps, so I should be able to only do 1 stop. I have got times down to 2.01.3/4/5 consistently. Not fast time at all but no spin outs. Just need to have a good qualify setup to now

I did a short stint yesterday and again today. Haven't decided on one or two stop, but I think that I've found my racepace. It should be a Good race.

Well i have manged to get my times down now to 2.0.3/5/7 but tyres lasting now 14 laps so not to bad.

Also setting up pit stop I am not able to set my tyres pressure exactly how I have them on my setup up, it seems tyre pressure goes up in 2s?

I have also been using the pCars dash which is really good.

They do step in 2 or 3 at some preassures. You can try to pull the lever to minimum or full and then drag it to your desired preassure. That has worked some times for me. Otherwise you just have to live with it I'm afraid.

Who is the second reserve driver? as @Barker95 cant make it and @Ashley is working, does this mean there is a space on the grid?

I may be able to step in at short notice if needed (y)

Hi there @NumptyNed :) I have raised your question to the moderators of the league. This is because I don't know if there is other people that have signed up and that haven't been put in any league yet. Will hopefully have an answer within a couple of hours.

Super excited to be hosting proceedings later. For what info you can glean from this I tried full race distance with one stop and two stops- only ten seconds between them and both were pretty similar drives for me.

All set @NumptyNed . You are now listed as a reserv for PS4 GT3 Semi-Pro. There is a spot for you tonight if you can :)
I trust that you have read through the rules and accept to race fair and cleanly. I need your PSN id (if different than forum name) as I will be the one sending out the invitations. The car and livery you pick for your first race is the car you will use for the rest of the season.
We will have a free 45 minutes practise with a 2 lap test race (1 formation lap and 1 race lap). After that, stay in the lobby as we change it to race settings.

And last: Welcome to the Semi-Pro league :lol:

My tyre wear has been amazing with my setup. A confident 1 stop for me in tonights race. Fingers crossed. What is a good lap time (qualifying wise) i managed 2.02 in race against some AI for markers on where i can make some overtakes

I have managed 1:59,5 in quali. I just hope that I can repeat it when it matters... Wouldn't be surprised if @Gary Waddell and / or @Archie619 dips in to the 1:58's ;)

Best lap for me is a 2:01:5, typically I am slow through sector 2. Using pCars dash, my fastest possible time 2:00:9.
