A mercy killing lol. Really you saved me from some other humiliation. Getting DQ'ed was a bit random though. I guess it counted driving backwards off-track, because once I was on track I was kicked out before I could react. I knew I was pointed the wrong way, but figured I'd be fine spinning it around on track.

For those that missed it Jonathan was also DQ'ed in the practice race (although it let him finish). Maybe some weird issue with that track.

Anyway, happy to put it behind me :)

I got curious about the posted iRacing forum Phillips Island setup so I downloaded it and ran it.  Times where the same as with my setup,m so it is the driver that is the problem, not the setup!  Anyway, I've attached a comparison of the 2 setups and out of this I did change the brake compound to MED and backed off the brake bias to the 58.8% level.  This seems to help my locking of the front tires under heavy breaking and seems to have given me a finer control on the amount of brake I am inputting to the car.  Don't know what all the rest of you are running .... so this is just my observations on me ::)!

Summer. You all live in such appalling climates that once it is nice out you all go crazy(er).

I should be able to do the 4pm session.
