Really fast setup. I got 45.79 but the car is a little bit unstable in the corner. Im affraid that i will hit the wall somewhere during the important sunday laps. Maybe you could give me some advice to fine adjustment to make it more stable in the corner. If i make it by decreasing of the front wing it is too much (much understeer in the corner. Should i adjust a roll bars to make it a bit understeer?? I dont know.

edit: I would say try to put 1 more on backwing first and try it out.


What Peter said, if that slows you down too much, then put the rear wing back to where it was and come down a click or 2 on the Right Rear spring.

Soften the rear springs and bring them closer (rise the left or lower the right, or both)...
I got pretty nice setup from what Alberto did.. With some practice, the car starts to go as a train on the rails...

You have to lift to 3/4 at corner entry at the exact moment you turn in, and hold it there till the apex, then you smoothly put it back as you undwind the steering. Remember, not losing much speed at corner entry is the key at ovals. You have to arrive to the apex at the highest possible speed that doesn't force you one line up and scrub speed.

Well, I have three basic setups now, and only Albertos require lifting, and I kinda modified it to turn that to minumum.
The other two are flatout, but you have to enter turn corectly. And there is a small issue in first and sometimes second lap with cold tyres, so I have to lift off a bit, but not as far as 3/4... just not push it to the metal...

My safety setup has longer gears by 1click than normal and it is pretty stable without lifting. With radiator on 2 im able to do 4 safety fast laps. As well first 1 and half laps with cold tyres is necessary to lift a bit. I get 45.83 with it so i think it will be my safety way.

First lap, I have to lift, but then I'm all flat out if things go right. But then, acceleration stops at 197 mph for me.

To get there, I had to add one click more fuel, cos otherwise my engine cuts out 200 metres before the line...

When the tires are cold, yes. But that only lasts for one lap or so. After that, flat footing it all the way.
The race with 75 gallons of fuel will be a very different story.

I have to lift for every corner, every lap. But that is just the Coyote's deal

I only have to lift for the first corner sometimes (first lap cold tyres)...but with my current Eagle72 setup I'm on the very limit of disaster each lap while going flat out and no lifting...need to do that to be really quick is this car. I guess the Eagle72 is missing out a tiny bit in the chassis looking at the timetables so far but it can be very close.

Best chassis are Eagle 73 and M16C. The Parnelli is slower than the Eagle 72 1000 HP but (thanks to the engine) quicker than the Eagle 72 950 HP at fast tracks. At intermediate ones (Trenton) it is on par, and at slow ones (Milwaukee, Phoenix) it is slower.

I lift in all corners, just a tiny bit. To slow the car scrubbing speed is not as efficient Wink

Question,

If I'm doing my Q run, and I Screw up and decide to wave off, I then put myself in line, an dI then get a chance to make that run, if I then run the fastest time do I get Pole or is there some procedure in place for those who make second runs?

Only complete runs count, so if you missed your second run you would miss the field.

Just need to vent some steam...

I have no idea what I am doing wrong.

It takes me 8-10 laps to get any temperature into the tires, no matter how ridiculous I go with the setup.

If I take the fuel out, equalling less weight, I have no grip because the car isn't forced to the road which gives me less heat in the tires.

In other words, I can't see how I can ever manage to qualify, I will have to run with my race setup (pretty much, some slight changes but with Race Fuel (about 3 quarters of a tank) to get at least 1 resonable flying lap)...

Anyone willing to come onto the server just to give me some slight help to see if it's possible to make a qually setup on the Kenyon, I knew I'd struggle to qualify but I didn't know I'd struggle this hard when I took the fuel out (been trying since last thursday to get a qually setup done...) :smil20:

I think the question was slightly different.

Let's say you qualify at 300 MPH on your first (and only) attempt. I wave off my first run, and on the second I lap at 301 MPH.

In real life, you would be a first day qualifier and you would start in front of me because I didn't set my time on the first run, along with everyone else who's first run was a good one.

Or maybe I misunderstood and I'm overcomplicating it. :D

You can only wave off a run during the run. In any case, if you complete a run, that is your time and speed unless you are bumped.
