  1. I'm feeling better as the day is going on, ibuprofen really helped the aches. Waking up this morning all I wanted to do is sleep all day. Thanks for the tips, I've signed up in the EVO variant for now but will try out both versions and change if I feel I'm quicker with one over the other. I've not adjusted any engine maps when driving the Aston, I'll have to look into them for the Ferrari. I have plenty of time before the race to understand the car.
  2. I've signed up for this in the Ferrari 488 GT3, looking forward to trying out a new car and I've never driven Suzuka so a new track for me as well. I cancelled my registration for the bremgarten races tonight, I got my second vaccination yesterday and feeling rough today. maybe if I'm feeling better later I'll jump into the second race.
  3. It's been awesome, glad I made the jump onto the forum here. Hi @Yannik you will love it here the racing has been really fun.
  4. I'll have to try that, threaten them with switching to Ziggo. Will try to get on the practice server this evening to see how the phone connection continues to hold up.
  5. These internet issues are really frustrating, unfortunately not the first time this season. Really sorry for taking you out @milko. I guess its the latency trying to guess where my car is that I flashed up on the right side of the track like that and then inside or beside you at the apex. I hit the inside curb and launched myself across the track into the gravel further up the hill and rejoined after a couple cars went through so I never even realised I caused you to crash as it didn't appear like that on my screen, but that doesn't change the fact I took you out. I just did 30 minutes on the server using my phone data as a hotspot, it seems to be a more solid connection than my useless WiFi, I hope this makes the difference in the actual race session and these sort of situations don't persist.
  6. I'm so happy this weeks races are sprint races without a mandatory pitstop. The pit exit is a nightmare, I try to take it slow and still mess up spectacularly. I got on for 2 half hour practice sessions today, some flashes of good lap times starting to show but no sign of consistency unless you count trips through the gravel. I'm still looking forward to tomorrow will do my best to keep it clean even if it means taking it a bit slow.
  7. I like the idea of using a new car, I've only used 1 so far so I was thinking about switching next season anyway. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to switch between the GT3s and GT4s, maybe the season could favour the GT3 class for most races and do 1 or 2 in the GT4s spread out in the season. Or do a multiclass race for 2 events, pull names for half the field from a hat who has to drive the GT4s one week and then the other half drive them the next week, or even take a third of the field and do it over 3 races. Maybe it's a bit awkward if it's different tracks and repeating the same track may be boring. This has been my first league I've joined, I really enjoy the formats as they are so won't be unhappy either if not much changes for next season.
  8. Just did my first hour of practice around laguna seca, what a slippery track. I really struggled to get a lap in in the first 30 minutes, and it seemed to be any time I even just touched the gravel I was backwards or in a wall, it's not very forgiving. Going to do another hour of practice tomorrow and hope I can improve a bit before the races on Thursday. Maybe I should've done some practice over the weekend, to late now though. Tell me about it, I was going to book flights back to Ireland this week but how the numbers climbed so quickly I'm holding off a bit longer and hoping things don't get too much worse. The 'dancen met jansen' was just an idiotic idea.
  9. I got away with the contact and sort of bounced off the wall with minimal damage and facing the right way, I was lifting a bit too much in eau rouge as well all race as I wasn't feeling confident through there. The timing was super unlucky as @SneakyNinjagot passed you on the straight right after you let me back through. It was unfortunate as you had a large pace advantage over me as did sneaky, I got very lucky with my qualifying position to be ahead of you guys at the start of the race. Still I had some great fun tonight some good battles and really enjoyed racing in the tricky conditions. Bring on the corkscrew next week!!!
  10. I can see you take a lot more speed through eau rougue/raidillon and stavelot, I'm going to have to do some more practice tonight to see if I can get my time down under yours, I definitely feel like there's still a lot out there.
  11. Yeah that's exactly it, just swapped the whole pedal and swapped the cables and it worked. I could've probably swapped the springs but it was really easy to swap the whole pedal.
  12. Here is my qualifying lap in the wet. Super chuffed with it, I think swapping the clutch for my accelerator on my csl pedals made my right foot much better, the spring is heavier and easier to get smooth inputs compared to the regular throttle pedal.
  13. Not sure if it was me either, race 2 I qualified 2nd and on the first corner dropped to 3rd behind @Erik i stayed close-ish behind the lead pair for a lap or 2 and then had a pretty uneventful race to myself. I had two small off tracks looking at the mini map for yellows and missing braking points but I didn't really race anyone.
  14. @davejm @daifuco hoping for an easy speedy recovery for you guys. Oh nice I'm jealous, would love to get to a F1 race. I've been discussing with an Italian friend to drive down to Monza in September but still a lot up in the air whether it's possible. Ouch that looks like a nasty one indeed. Do you mean the cantas and other miniature cars, I've never seen them in Ireland and couldn't imagine them being on the roads in the UK either, maybe the odd one in a city but nowhere near as common as here in the Netherlands.
  15. I will have to look up some videos, I'm sure there's an AC mod for it as well. track layout looks interesting to drive actually. I'm told I get the choice between this or the Moderna, doesn't seem to be any major differences to how people react to both of them. Good thing I rarely get the car to the apex there. I'm definitely missing those curbs I do notice around Zandvoort a lot of the breaking points seem to be with one side of the car already loaded up and I just understeer wide of apexes, maybe I need to work on my braking and turn ins around this track
  16. Only got to practice 1 hour so far this week, really not feeling any flow in the GT4 around Zandvoort, a lot of weird gear shifts mid corner. I know I can go 3 tenths quicker in the first corner alone if I could just keep a lap together after that would be great . Getting my vaccination this afternoon so hoping for little to no side effects so I can practice a bit longer tonight. I didn't know there was a track in Assen, first section reminds me a lot of Portimao.
  17. I think it's safe to say it's my internet then, curse you KPN I sort of just ended up on the outside of you because of what happened in front, I got away without damage so no hard feelings. Signed up in a GT3 may change at a later date to a GT4.
  18. So I did disappear towards the end of the race. I'm going to test out using my mobile data for a couple practice sessions and see how it does, maybe it's better than my home WiFi, I know my phone is faster.
  19. I completely forgot about that, I wasn't even sure who tagged me when it happened but I just remember ending up straight again and continuing on. I somehow managed to escape any real damage from contacts with other cars, so no worries. Well the crew chief said nothing but I did end up off the track in the esses later on and rolled headon into the wall, this made my lights flash or completely turn off under heavy braking which made the last 20 minutes of racing and seeing apexes tricky.
  20. Had great fun racing tonight even if it wasn't the cleanest race I had, result wasn't bad considering that 1st lap mayhem and contact later on. Had some great racing against @SharkyOB @Meers & @Valver was in the mix as well, I still definitely still have a lot to learn about proper race craft and I feel I'm getting a bit better with every race. I need to stop making contact with sharky in the races, it's becoming a bad habit of mine. Thanks to everyone here for being great to race against and to learn with in a chill environment. I'm excited for next week GT4s at zandvoort, it will be a home race for me as there's no Irish tracks and I live in the Netherlands now.
  21. I had great fun at the Zolder multiclass race which was also my introduction here, I'd definitely be up for another one. I've never driven Suzuka so I like that idea, the chaos of Bathurst could also be a wild one in multiclass but maybe a bit too messy.
  22. Yesterday evening I did my first 10 laps around Kayalami, it's one hell of a fun track. Definitely some tricky braking zones and hidden apexes, seems like there's a really good flow if you hook everything up, I get why people really like it. I will be jumping on the practice server for an hour after work to see if I can put up a respectable time, I don't see myself being very fast this week as I have limited practice time.
  23. Yeah I really need to think about how I go about racing. I wasn't measured in my defense at all, it was all or nothing and I know this isn't the best way to race but behind the wheel it wasn't even a thought in my head. You were clearly faster than me, maybe I should've let you through to try and follow as best I could. I didn't actually hear anything I was busy cursing myself out for my own stupidity.
