    Managed a couple of ffs tonight pitting in with roughly 3 liters in the tank after 8 laps.

    Also managed a personal best of 8:13.694 which is unbelievable for me.

    Unfortunately the .csv didn't save for this session (for whatever reason) so I attached the one from the previous session hosted by @Skid_Marc_

    @Skid_Marc_
    I'm at work right now and can't edit the availability chart. Can you change the yellow hours at the start to red? I might make it on time. But just to be safe i dont't want to get scheduled there.

    I'm visiting a car dealer to get myself an mx-5. :)
    Thanks!

    This release focuses on fixing specific racing issues.



    CHANGE LOG:

    Race Control

    - Fixed an issue with rolling starts at Road Course tracks with a separate start line, where if the green drops in the same 1/60th of a second that the pace car crosses the finish line, all the drivers who had not yet crossed the finish line would become a lap up on the cars who had already crossed the finish line. This is very unlikely to happen at most tracks, but, for example, at Monza last week, the configuration of the start and finish lines and the pit lane are exactly wrong so that the pace car is often exactly at that wrong spot for this bug to occur. Monza is also on many series' schedules for the remainder of the season, so it was important to get this fix out.


    Audi R8 LMS GT3

    - Slightly increased the toughness of the floor to reduce damage from bottoming.


    BMW Z4 GT3

    - Slightly increased the toughness of the floor to reduce damage from bottoming.


    Mercedes-AMG GT3

    - Slightly increased the toughness of the floor to reduce damage from bottoming.

    That setup is magnifique @LoucMachine. It felt good all the way around the track.

    That's pretty good, Sam. I'm also struggling when I still have lots of fuel in the tank, it seems slow then, even though it has grip. To me, it seems like by about lap 4 it suddenly hits a turning point where you can more easily gain time. I'm still chasing an 8:25 though, might be able to get it towards the end of a stint.

    Ferrari fuel chart has been updated using the data from @Duke and @LoucMachine .

    @Sam Roselaar I'll be doing some driving in a couple of minutes, and maybe tomorrow during GMT+2 evening times, most likely not on Thursday.

    I noticed you updated the laptime from 13's to 16's but still think that time may be optimistic.

    Even at 16's I'm peddling a bit and don't think that's a safe and repeatable laptime for the entirety of the event especially with traffic.

    Hopefully the next few days will yield a reliable average laptime because if I were to guess based off where our Drivers currently are I'd put the lap average in the high teens to low 20's.

    for @Noodleguitar
    just finished a stint and here's what you asked for:

    remaining tire tread inner edge 81%
    tires felt really slippery/understeering the last 2 laps but that could just be me overdriving the car

    average fuel consumption (including out-/inlap) 11,86 L / lap
    pretty bad right?

    average lap time (excluding out-/inlap) 8:32,930
    lap times ranging from 8:34,148 to 8:31,419
    laps were driven with moderate traffic

    So after a couple test session, I am not going to race the Ferrari for this race. If I had more time it would definitely be a different story. I will hop on TS and chill when im not in the car.

    Well I suck and wasn't able to make on last night. Tonight was also a late night and have a few things to finish up, tomorrow I'm going to a Bruins playoff game in Boston so no driving for me until Thursday at the earliest.

    @Hydromani why not? The setup Louc made is absolutely awesome. Haven't tried the Audi in a long time now, but liked it the best after the very first patch, anything after, it was ruined.

    I made it into sub 20s, but unless I gain some bigger balls, race pace will probably be in the flat 20s for me. Little faster possible, as I keep taking certain corners slower and then realize I can go much faster :D

    I'm sitting in the 8:20 flats right now, comfortably, with out over pushing the car. I think I can get in to the 8:18's at a comfortable clip before Saturday. Much more than that and I think I'd be pushing the car too hard and run out of talent on race day.

    It's not the setup and not the times ( was hitting 8:19). I don't feel comfortable in it, Guess I got use to how the Audi feels.

    @Skid_Marc_, @Noodleguitar, are we trying to get all the teams in the same split like last time? If so, what IR should we be shooting for?

    @Duke, will you have time to revise the team member names on the AMG paint?

    Not really lol but that's always pretty much the case anyway.

    If I can have the Teams finalized by Thursday that should give me enough time to add the names.
