Blew my attemp. Done a huge mistake on first corner. missed the apex and lost nearly half a second. Costed me my concentration and I wasn't able to run the car as I should have in lap 2 and 3. Only found my focus back on lap 4...much too late. Totally screw up as the car should have drive 47.8 - 47.7 - 47.5 and 47.2 as I did offline. That show should have me got me the cut.
Hope for racing sunday are now tenous at best. Don't see how I could be in the 33 with my qualification. Many thanks to Jason Fitch for the wonderful set he sent me. I've been able to be a second in total.

Well it will be next time at Wisconsin

Well I kept it between the walls for four laps, which is a good point. Laughing

I could have gone about 8/10 quicker over four laps, I did a few 46 second runs today, but after I blew the engine on my last test run I decided against using radiator 2. Running car 89 also meant I wasn't sure to get another attempt so I played it safe knowing low 47 laps would still outdo 6-7 others.

Thank you to the fellow drivers who took their time to help me sort my car and driving out. I had never even driven these cars until Tuesday when I discovered the mod and instantly liked it. It took a while to get up to speed (and maintaining it in a safe way) but the result is satisfactory.

Now I'm off watching the live broad cast, you're doing a good job to keep us entertained.

Just one thing, my first name is pronounced like it's done in this video where my namesake tries to cover up his tyre choice. :hihi:

What a surprise!!! I made it. 33th. :banane: :banane: :banane:

I was so sure I won't be able to attend the race after blewing up my attemp. Well it's been a close call but no matter. I qualify the ugly Chevy. It has been quite tense and a bit lucky to achieve this. That's as close a thing to a victory I could have in this championnship :champ: cheers

So they will be all three engines at the start. Let's hope they will be a Chevy under the checkered now

I am the first alternate. If someone can not participate on Sunday, I'm ready with a full tank of methanol :banane: :banane:

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:

The Coyote was a rather poor qualifier in 1973, its strength is in the long runs where the Foyt engine uses less fuel. Regarding the tires, I never had those issues you mention. The car has almost the same downforce as an Eagle 72 and some more dry weight, as well as the same tires, so you should be able to heat them up. :smil20:

I think I found the issue in the end all thanks to Richard chatting with me and giving me a few pointers. Indianapolis 500 Entry List and Time Trials (May 15th) - Page 10 3108518133

I was running way too low camber for the additional speed that I was carrying in the turns compared to the race setup. The loss of weight also paid its part in the situation as that weight, in the race setup, was helping the car to stay well on the road and allowing the tires to heat up before the weight would be gone and so the problem was less noticable on low fuel later in the race stints that I had been running. :doh:


I suppose I'm still very much an Oval rookie... :smil20:


But at least I have a race setup that I feel extremely comfortable with so I'm really really happy that I was able to make it into the field. I'm not that fast but a 2 stopper and anything can happen if I can stay out of trouble, similar to last year (but will have to do something about the cars handling in traffic, last year I was loosing 20-25 k's of mid corner speed if I was close to someone else...) :drink:

Dude, you've beaten my new car with my old car, and that one was good for 7th position in Texas, so please! Wink

Now its time to find a little something for raceday Smile

Sorry Jonathan, mistook you with Jacob. Your car has indeed less downforce than the Coyote, but you did a great job with it :top:  Yes for qualy you need more static camber because the car runs low and has less suspension travel. When you are in race trim you have to raise the car considerably so that it doesn't bottom out, and when compressing the suspension will gain negative camber. So you don't need as much static one in race trim because you get it when the car is pressed agains the ground. Another useful trick for qualy is to overinflate the tires a bit, as that will generate more heat over two laps. You would have wrong inflation and temps in race trim, but for qualy you can do it because the run is so short.
