Actually I'm one second and half slower than you with the Finley (27.528 as PB). The car is just undriveable most of time switching from over steering in exit to under steering in entry as soon as I touched something on the set. Had I still hairs I'll be pulling them one by one every time I'm driving geek
Try once to use the qualy boost...I wasn't able in five attemps to do any time at all. The car, with maximum boost, is just way too touchy to exit the last corner proprely.
Think it's something in my wheel. I've lost my old parameters when I've to put a new partition of rFactor at work for Ontario. Now it seems to be much more touchy than before.

So I'm still, and by far, the best contendant to the the shitty driver award both for the event and for the season lol!

Just got a 4th dimension adventure here affraid

Offline I was struggling with my Chevy very twisty on every corner. PB: 27.4
Got a try with same car same set online....26.3 affraid . One second faster Shocked And not just that but a hugely more stable car.
Don't quite understand where I've got such difference :hum:

Shit I'm out for the shittiest car award lol! (well till the race at least :D )

You are probably using the wrong chassis upgrade while racing offline.

Can't be that, the correct upgrade is enforced by the track.

I was using the short track chassis offline.

But it's not the first time I noticed difference between my times on the server and the one offline (and not just in USAC).
I need now to find time to tune a bit my set as I've also noticed the tyres are wearing a bit faster online.

Risky to argue with Alberto but my money is on the Mongoose (my early ride) as being the worst car available.

Having actually worked on the Mongoose at Milwaukee in 1974 & 75 I agree with Lee. Wink

It's certainly a tough one lol! 

During the first part of the season, the Mongoose is the slowest car but the chassis is not bad - it just lacks downforce and power. On the second half, after the rule changes, the Foyt is more competitive and there is less downforce in all cars, so the shortcomings in the shitties Offy powered cars become more evident.

Between Atlanta and Finley, the Atlanta has a better chassis. It was a top car some years before, whereas the Finley was hastily built (Better: Frankestanized) in the backyard garden of someone (Literally. Not even shade tree mechanics, but a garden Shocked )
