AOR iRacing GTE League - Season 5
Watkins Glen International: Boot
Survivors of the Nürburgring gather this week near the Canadian Boarder at this good, old track in the US of A, taking a vacation from bumpy, old tracks with close barriers, ... oh, wait... nevermind.
Anyway, thanks to the simplicity of tracks on this side of the pond, we're dealing with a lot less than 170 turns (12).

I really like this track but lose a ton of time in the bus stop. Every time. Will be fun! Another track not really suited for the Porsche (see what I did there? Lining up excuses already!)

It is, but they aren't that big really, and pretty much all the corners are Porsche friendly corners. If it was without the bus-stop, maybe I'd agree a bit more. :p

I’m really hopeful I can keep up with the back of the field this time out. :poop:

So is the BOP applied to the league as well Marvin? (not that it makes much difference tbh)

I'm running 44-46's depending on the temperature. When it's super hot it's really easy to spin the car too.

Assuming a standard weight density of baseline of 0.755 kg/L the incremental weight of 10 kg equals approx 13.2 liters. Would have to look up the exact volumetric weight density used in iRacing in telemetry (Edit: iRacing uses 0.75 kg/liter)

If the car is really undrivable with this weight increase wouldn't it mean that the setup would not have worked with maximum fuel last season ( as I recall there was a fuel limit set). Furthermore the +10kg very likely added at the center of gravity of the vehicle and therefore only partially adding to the load on the rear axle.

Obviously the Ford know has a disadvantage - or better no longer an advantage. But that's the logic of balance of performance. But can't tell what data iRacing is using to compare performances.

Skin Pack update:
No skins were uploaded before the deadline, so there will be no Update for R3

The skins will be in the next SkinPack for R4 which is also the big one.
