    I would like to drive in this event. I'm available in the afternoon after 3pm EST, if you have a timeslot for me.

    I can drive any car, just let me know so I can start building a setup.

    Anyone want me to drive with them? I'd like to practice with the right car. I can understand if Ken doesn't want me on his team. :(

    ..and I promise to only change the car in the last minute.

    For formality purposes, my choices are:
    1. Ford GTE
    2. Ferrari GT3
    3. DP

    Here's a slightly adjusted setup (WIP) from Marc's post earlier. I have stiffened front LS dampers by one click for better turn in and put in my Suzuka HS dampers all around to try and ease the bumpiness. Don't think wing 5 is necessary, so will try 4 and maybe 3 over next 2 days. I expect to keep 4 as car is behaving pretty good. No idea on lap times, my first timed was 59 flat, with lots of room to make up.

    Thanks @Slider. Will give it a run today!

    Edit: Took it for a few laps and really enjoyed it. Turn it was really quick, and the HS Dampers definitely took away some of the bumpiness, which was a welcome relief for a 12 hour eduro.

    Thanks! I'll have to play with the wing a little, car and track will definitely progress toward understeer once it rubbers in and tires get worn, it's just about getting the right about of oversteer at start, so car/track can naturally move it to neutral. Don't want the car too crazy, but again, don't want to end up with a plow (winter is over dammit!).

    This week is going to be a nightmare for me, but I think I should be able to race this Saturday. That is literally the best answer work could give me. I'll hopefully be teaming up with Gregor Eevardi in the Daytona Prototype.

    There are currently 7 Ford drivers:
    @Slider
    @Anson Bennette
    @Fromthenavy
    @Brainling
    @Kelley G
    @Duke
    @Bedo

    Are you guys wanting to split up in two teams (4+3), or three teams (2+2+3)? I don't know if I can make schedules for all the teams, but still need availability from @Anson Bennette and @LoucMachine. It will work out either way but I believe @Bedo will need to be on a three driver team (unless someone wants to drive 6+ hours straight). Let me know your thoughts.

    I'll be on for an open, or hosted, session tonight if anyone is interested.

    @Brainling and myself talked about driving together. Well actually I talked at him about it and remain unsure of status at this time.

    @Brainling, if we are indeed a Team are we good with 2 Drivers or are we looking for a 3rd?
