    This one might take closer to an hour, but will be a lot of fun. We will be using a delayed start of about 2 seconds per driver and this one will be in reverse order of car PI.

    Here are the PI settings to tune for this week. Since this is a speed track, AWD cars are getting an extra 5 PI than I would normally give them....

    I'm in. Although i may need some tuning help from DelZaster

    If I run with AWD does that mean i have 655 pi to work with? Ive been practicing on catalunya or whatever this week and had 2 builds i was trying out (awd/rwd). So im not sure what works for me for this track.

    I'm going back to Michigan to spend time with family for thanksgiving. I'll plan on racing Monday night, but should something unexpected come up I'll let you know Hellisan.

    Also, what happened to the schedule? I like Pagamer07 thought we were running Catalunya this week?

    And 680 PI......I'm never going to be able to keep this thing on the track lol.

    If you are struggling I might move you up to the 670 range... But yes at minimum that would be fine.

    I should have posted something sooner, we had been discussing getting this track into the mix and just didn't know when we would be doing it. We started talking about it after last week's race, I probably should have posted something. I know you probably paintstakingly tuned the car for Catalunya ;) so just save that tune as we will be doing that one next week.

    Alright, that's cool. I've had a handful of NCAA user games this week so I haven't had a lot of time to practice yet so I'm not too far along on Catalunya, only 7 laps or so.

    I'm totally doomed... I can throw all 10 PI into the engine, and I'm still going to have everyone fly past me on the long straight.

    If you drive well on the curves you will do just fine. Try out your tune with the downforce all the way down and see what the difference in top speed is on the straight. See if it's worth turning it all the way down. The ring is setup so that you can really speed through the curves and have a good lead heading out onto the straight... Yes, if me or dc is behind you coming onto a straight you are probably screwed, but overall I think you'll do well if you can keep the car healthy.

    If you dont do a ton of practice and know the course like the back of you hand then with these cars just do your best to stay on the pavement and you will be fine. Watch those high curbs though....they can seriously fuck your car up!

    Basically, what he's saying is don't do what I did in that vid DelZaster posted a few weeks ago.

    Trying to go with downforce almost all the way down, and I feel like a 5 mph gust of wind will blow me off the track. This is gonna take some practice.
