Downforce cars are fun. I just suck at driving them.

I set up a 2hr practice for 8:00pm tonight. It will be in the hosted sessions called iRCFS practice.

I'm gonna try it tonight. But my internet has been spotty ever since last week. Apparently they're having an issue that affects the entire area I live in. If I start having connectivity/netcode issues, I'm just going to drop out. I don't want my shitty internet to end up ruining someone else's race.

I had some lag early on in the race and that made my screen freeze for a second within a few hundred feet, that's why you were able to get by me Terry....I definitely didn't have my A-Game tonight but I was not as bad as it may have seem at that very moment !!!

Locked up into T1 on the 3rd lap, nose pitched hard left and smacked the wall, ripping the nose off and damaging a corner. Didn't want to bother trying to limp it all the way around the track so I bailed. Damn brakes are just too touchy for me.

I was doing fine, then on lap 12 or so the rear snapped around on me. I hit the wall and at that late stage in the race there was no point in continuing. One thing I've noticed with the F3 now that I've spent more time in it, there is no warning when you lose the rear end, especially under braking. I need to spend some time playing with the brake balance I suppose. I didn't really care for that track personally.

I was just getting close enough to you to think we were going to have some fun over the last part of the race, then saw you off track.

Brake balance has to be over 58% front, I run 58.3 - 58.5...Even then on the first few laps you have to be VERY careful braking for T1....I've driven another car last time I went on iRacing and when I entered the practice last night I looped it like 4 laps in a row under braking for T1 before the feel for it came back to me....Otherwise it's a blast !

BTW, beginning in March I'm entering a new Porsche Car Club of America exclusive series in the 911 Cup on iRacing ! The fun part is that all races will be broadcast with two commentators on the official iRacing channel on You Tube !

Thanks Michel, I'll run some practice laps and give that a shot. The 911 cup car huh? I think that's the Porsche I really like on iRacing, even though I'm slow in it.

I know you liked it too, do we go with the RSR ? At Sebring I'm convinced it is more planted than the 488 ! And I can do a double stint + another if needed...

I'd be in (if I can avoid getting destroyed again) but my availability is a bit up in the air that day as my son has a science fair on the same date.

i was REALLY impressed how quick he picked up the backwards steering, he had almost zero issues with that. even counter-steered a few slides instinctively.

Not looking good for racing this week. I haven't had internet at home since last Wednesday night.
It could be worse I guess, some people still haven't even gotten their electric power back.

I should be there, provided work doesn't go off the rails. My internet issue here in podunk seems to be resolved, for now.
