    Said to my wife "Of course I want to spend the evening with the love of my life but not to worry I will have finished racing by 10pm then she can have my full attention"

    Ran some short races with all the cars again over the weekend as I'm better a bit obsessed about trying to get closer racing - While the wide range of cars should provide a good test for everyone, there is also tyre wear to consider over the 30min races. The Megane road car eats it tyres very quickly, so you might have to be prepared for a pit stop. I think there are at least 5 cars here which could deserve to have a series of their own, they are so good.

    As Steve, Carl & Nigel are doing a great job with Casuals on Thursdays, I'll try and get on some other nights & setup some practice races in Public rooms to test these cars out further. Does anyone have any free nights at all.

    So....... Any chance of tuning talk about the Renault 275? Change the ,.LSD? Ride hight?

    Tried the brake bias and that seems to hurt more than help........Lsd at 50/15 down 5 or 10 on ride hight seems to help.......other than adjusting for fuel I don't know? Anybody had a chance to give a solid go at shocks and springs?

    How many laps we doing Bruce? Or is it 30 min time?

    Don't mind what seems to be impatience....... Just waking to a wine hangover from a wine tasting in celebration of heart day..... Missus is snoring happily and I am wide awake, wondering what quiet things I can get started........

    @Motorhead - Laps will be confirmed tonight

    I've changed the race format slightly, this is now amended in the OP :
    (note - because PCars has automated practice/quali/race -we cant swap between cars in practice)

    7.45pm Practice - Road Car
    8.00pm Qualifying - Road Car
    8.10pm Race 1 approx 30mins (Laps tbc) - Road Car
    10mins Quali for Race 2 - Race Car
    Race 2 approx 30mins (Laps tbc) Race Car

    I wont be doing the 'top 3 stay in pits' format so everyone a chance to have some time in both cars.

    Yep, the trickiest car of the series by far, but does respond well to changes in setup

    You just have to know how to change in setup. :eek::confused:
