      Full weight and racing slicks or Race weight and sport tires... That is the question. I Might have to make a hybrid as well... Gah I think I will end up with 3 cars depending on the track.

      I think hybrid wins out for me. Full weight car does not get enough top speed increase to warrent the lost handling. My tune is pretty much dialed in now I think. Good turn in, even temps across the tires, and it doesn't really bottem out on the rumble strips. I also got another 2hp/2tq with the same PI rating by mucking around with engine upgrade combo's

      I got a 2:13.3xx on my test run on that course, so that sounds about right for lap times.

      I just did a quick 5 laps and got a 1:15.965. With some practice I think that it can get down to a 1:15.5.

      That it is. And I forgot to mess with my setup.. Pretty sure im gonna lose lol. Its a diff setup then I last raced you all with though.

    33. 02-06-2012 08:00 PM #33
      Nevermind I am just going to step out of this race. I can't run better then a 1.19 I just am not into the slow fwd cars in this game. I am more into the insane rwd cars. The golf is a great car and all and mine handles good but my aggressive style wont let me run a decent time with them. give me a rwd and I can run decent all day long.
