    New build feels fairly solid even though my driving was not. I plan on trying to make a push to get a bit more consistent but this golf weather is killing my practice time.

    That was a fun race last night i had a few good battles but three spins put me to the backish.

    Good turnout as well, lets get a few more out on the grid.

    Well the race was pretty good for me as I benefited from others having issues. I cant say I’m that aware of many of the changes….Feels kinda of the same. Good race tho and great to have so many drivers.

    Butthurts will be rough next week tho.

    I notice my Vette feels like it has a bit more grip.

    This week will be hard to just survive.

    I’ll host a Monza room tonight.

    I’d like to propose a change to the format. It’s just a thought, but it could simplify administration and increase the strategy.

    What if we reduced the maximum amount of fuel each car can carry to 8.x gallons instead of 10.6 and removed the random caution?

    Here’s my reasons:
    1. The caution is not automatic. It requires someone to throw the caution and to keep track of when the “random” caution will happen. This requires that person to concentrate on administration responsibilities instead of their own race.
    2. If we reduce the amount of fuel allowed it would add the fuel mileage game to the simulation (see what I did there? it’s not a game!) This way the drivers that may not be as fast, but have a smoother driving style may be able to compete for a podium just based on fuel usage. Generally it takes 17 gallons for one of our races. If we reduce it to just under that, we’ll see people conserving fuel and other people diving in for a splash and go.

    Thoughts?

    I’m against fuel saving racing but will do whatever the group is in favor for.

    Not sure fuel saving can save me from myself. LOL

    I like the idea of doing something to drive more strategic pit strategies. With the tire change right now it’s really just a matter of slapping another full tank in

    Monza put on a good show!!

    A little bit of bad luck, but very entertaining.

    Definitely not one of my favorite tracks, but it was a great race. I had an amazing battle with Jeff for several laps. We would trade positions at least once a lap.

    Fun racing last night. It’s a bit sketchy passing into that first chicane. Nice to see everyone race clean and play it smart. I saw lots of passing and enjoyed watching Jeff and Mike for the first half of the race. There were 4 cars racing within 2 seconds of each other before the yellow flag came out. Fun stuff!

    I enjoyed working with Jeremy earlier in the week. Not sure I was much help. But I did notice improvement in his corner enter speed and exit speed.

    Now on to another chicane heavy track for next week.

    The help did not show up in my results Allen, but the lap times were much better. Thanks for taking the time to help out.

    I am definitely down for more lessons.

    Yeah buddy, just let me know when and I’ll try to be there. I like trying to help out. Makes racing much more enjoyable.

    So um, tortoise and the hare I guess, eh?

    Jeremy, you missed it. Slow and steady dominated that race. You could have won it, no joke! 🙂

    Ok
