Wondering who  :unsure:

Some say he loves car... And that he is in a hunting (JD will get that)

I just know, that he's fast in FWD cars, especially a Seat Leon of Tiago Monteiro :D

Now, I don't feel crazy for what I said in the past.

The F3 was horrible for me with your fixed setup, whoever designed it. 

A bit of tweaking the suspension balance and wow, finally a car I can drive!

Too bad most likely I cannot make the race, it would be enjoyable.

 

But this is where I feel annoyed... whenever someone has a problem with the way a RACE car handles, they are told that is their fault some how.

But really, even lemans teams have dials and such that they tweak when changing drivers.. 

Even Alan McNish in that video for SRW explained that his preference is to brake in deep... but some others prefer to brake early....

Each strategy benefits from different setups...

 

So, please please every champ after this, open setup if the car allows. 

I understand that the best drivers are the ones that are fast with any setup- yes you aliens :)

In no way, I feel I can match that with the limited time I have due to job/friends/family/other games...

I agree with this. When I first started racing here, I was in favor of fixed setups because I thought it would be too complicated and time-consuming to have all these options to tinker with. But I did the whole 9-race GT Giants championship with open setup, and I found it tremendously helpful to be able to adjust the balance. In particular, with the GT2 cars—which don't handle as sweetly as the GT3 cars—I was able to tweak them to make them fun to drive and I particularly enjoyed the GT2 races.

Unfortunately there's no documentation for the noobs, but the default setups are driveable if you don't want to figure things out, and I did my research to figure out the settings (I only needed to figure out what the differential settings were for).

So yeah I'm in favor of open setups going forward.

Dear Drivers, I've just posted all further details of Round 3, please have a look: Free to Play Championship: Round 3 

 

 

As you know, Summer Time period is ending in the middle of the night (European) between 25th and 26th of October. Exactly around 2AM for UK and 3AM for the rest of Europe on October the 26th. That means you will have to adjust your clocks back by 1 hour and BST will turn into GMT, while CEST into CET from that moment.

 

Considering that, I had two choices. Either stay with the times of the day that we used to operate in, which would effectively mean to host all the races 1 hour earlier according to the clock, or move everything 1 hour forward, what effectively will mean hosting them at exactly the same time according to the clock. I've picked the second option, because it limits the risk of someone missing the race, for both drivers from Europe and other continents.

 

Countdowns are added to each section of the post above. Here they are again:

 

Countdown to Race 3 for Skillquant (SQ) group 500-700

 

Countdown to Race 3 for Skillquant (SQ) group 700-900 B

 

Countdown to Race 3 for Skillquant (SQ) group 700-900 A

 

Countdown to Race 3 for Skillquant (SQ) group 900-1100 B

 

Countdown to Race 3 for Skillquant (SQ) group 900-1100 A

 

 

If you find anything concerning in all of this, please let me know  :)

Good idea coss with the countdown timers.

 

Really ridiculous that europe and North America cannot come up with the same DST change.  Ours is next week. sheesh, wow, like that would change a lot...

Pretty much sundown/sunup changes 1 minute per day, so you see how arbitrary they are in picking "exact" dates.

In the hot lap I was only P12 and a whole second off the pace.  In the A race I qualified P11, about what I expected.  My car felt mostly stable but I just couldn't get it to hook up in the Carousel or the T7 hairpin.  So I expected to languish in the mid-pack or worse.
 
But I had a good start, or rather, some people ahead of me had bad starts.  By Turn 3 I was surprisingly in P6, and Alex—who had started just behind me—was still behind me, so we were both really happy that we gained so many positions.  But I was afraid that there were a few people behind me that were going to have a stronger race pace, and I was right.  Alex and Andybob pressured me all race, so there was no rest.
 
By the end of Lap 4 two guys in front of me had spun out, so I was in P4, which was crazy considering that I started P11.  Behind me, anybob passed Alex and then pressured me for a couple of laps until he spun out.  Alex caught up to me and applied some pressure but was driving very maturely and not taking big risks.  On Lap 9 I let him pass.  I'm not sure why, but he had a faster pace and I guess I just appreciated him not driving aggressively and risking an accident.
 
Next up, Mastrorocco caught up and pressured me.  Eventually on Lap 12 he spun right behind me, like andybob had done earlier in the race.  But now andybob had caught back up again and applied heavy pressure.  He had a much faster pace but had an incident at the start of the race that put him behind us slow guys.  I wasn't in the mood for more gifts so I fought hard to keep my place.  I managed to hold him off for 3 1/2 laps, but on the last lap he got under me in the Carousel and took P5.  I was happy to finish P6, which was a decent finish considering my slow pace and bad starting position.
 
In the end, looking at the championship standings, I finished P3, 8 pts behind andybob.  If I had known the championship would look like this, I would not have let Alex past.  It's possible I could have held Alex off, and he could have held andybob off, and then I would have finished P2 in the championship.  I should have paid better attention to who was near me in the points before the last round!
