    I do not own Ferrari so wouldn’t feel comfortable with it. Would love to join the DP if that’s cool. Haven’t done a lot of practice in it over the last two weeks but was very comfortable with it the last time I drove it.

    I can drive either the Ford or the Ferrari, I'm comfortable in both, but I need to know basically today which one I'm driving.

    @Brainling if you wanna jump over to Ferrari I’ll jump to DP. Reid doesn’t feel comfortable with 6 hrs of driving and I’m not sure I could muscle around Sebring for 6hrs myself. Does that work for everyone?

    I am down for whatever can accommodate you guys. I'll have to practice with another car if you guys want me to change though. Also being in a team of 3 would be better than a team of 2, so if you prefer have me in another car to ease on the stress I have no problem with that.

    But if I understand correctly, a team of @Brainling, @reid and me on the ferrari could be good... I dont mind other cars with the same team either (even if I have a preference for the ferrari). Also, I am not sure how do you guys want to proceed with setups ? I practiced with Craigs setup with fuel and suspensions adjusted. We can use that (tell me where to upload it if needed) or if you have another setup I'd like to give it a little practice. :)

    @Skid_Marc_ could you leave a setup for DP in teamspeak so I can get comfortable with it when I get home?

    Yup! @Saytex and I shook it down a bit. It is pretty solid. Don't freak out about the time lost between lap 2-3 and half tank. The lap times drop off quite steep at the first part of the run, and then come back as the fuel gets under half-tank. The feel of the car doesn't change much, though.. Hopefully I'll be able to find some time to practice with you tomorrow!

    Fuel charts for the Ferrari #000, Ford and Mercedes have been added to the schedule.

    Some info is still missing (or I missed it in this thread). If you want a fuel chart for your car, please fill in the missing numbers in the Fuel info tab.

    Edit: The formatting of the fuel charts is still raw, I'll nicely center everything and make it fit when all the info is more definitive.

    Thank you @Noodleguitar I hope my stint info was correct for our team. I think we're all pretty close on pace.

    Didn’t get to run nearly as much as I wanted tonight but put in a dozen laps. Car feels good. Gonna play with in car adjustments tomorrow. My time is sitting pretty consistent at 1:57. Curious what you guys are running just to see how much more time I need to find.

    @Skid_Marc_ I took a quick look at iRatings and we have 2 options for GTE teams:

    A: @Nejtun , @Brainling , @LoucMachine and @Fromthenavy register their respective teams, but that nets about 130-150 point difference between each

    B: @LoucMachine , @Fromthenavy and myself register our respective teams and have 36 point difference, but that leaves other Ferrari team for itself.

    Have Ferrari teams been using a particular set, or just the VRS one floating around?

    SO HOW ABOUT INSTEAD OF THE USUAL SPRINT RACE, YOU HOST A SEBRING PRACTICE

    EXCEPT FOR THE CAR SELECTION, YOU PICK THE CARS THAT B2O IS DRIVING ***MINUS*** THE CARS THAT YOU AREN'T DRIVING, AND *******PLUS********* THE NEW LMP1 CARS

    AND THEN I CAN JOIN AND HAVE FUN WHILE YOU GUYS PRACTICE

    Updated the Ford GT for Band of Others Endurance - Lake House. All drivers are registered to that team, and all drivers have "Admin" status, so everyone is free to register the team.

    The current number for that team is #078, does anyone want that changed? @Bedo @Fromthenavy @Slider
