Anyone thinking of running this?? I've built a few car and running so laps, the top guys seem to be hitting 01:00's, where as I'm hitting mid 01:01's

Finally. The bunfights over the SEAT/Megane/135i were ridiculous last time.

So what do we fancy running then? I've still got a soft spot for the Alfa.

Probably can't make week 1, as they'll never be done in time so I can get organised to run the Honda's at WLR.

I'm looking at the RS Focus, its a pig to drive and not the quickest but it'll be something different

Or maybe bring the Scirocco R out of retirement

Yes. I'd rather be in a Civic, obviously but will be in

I'll send it through tonight when I get home.
It' feels much slower in a straight line than it really is though. From last season, the speed you can carry out of corners just obliterated any HP advantage!

Think it was 303hp and 2526lb. I'll check he build rules too, just to see )

Build is the same, so my build should fit.
I used pretty much the same one the whole season last time.

I usually do the same. Tweaking for that final tenth of a second is for obsessive hotlappers. Driveable base build with decent balance, then adjust gears and tyre pressures to suit.

On the Honda's stock boxes are best, apart from starts! The PI difference isn't worth the advantage.

Sent you 2 tunes, use the second one

My suzuka tune was hitting 1:01:8 around Silverstone, in tuning mode, so early 1:01s I reckon with damage on.

The Civic's OK. Getting 1:01.6 out of it, although it occaisionally bites with epic understeer of doom. I'm running similar times in the Alfa, but slightly more consistently.

Given I'm going to have to miss the first week I'll happily privateer if you can find someone to who can make all the races. Entry needs to be in by Sunday.

I'm gonna have a play with the integra type R tonight, the rear end is more lively on it.

Can we have independent cars in team, or are we forced into one?
