Here is a new setup! I did 1:38.3xx with full fuel and track at 67 degree. I've set the ARB (front & rear) at None! It was very stable and fast! We will need to try it on hot weather to make sure we don't have too much oversteer which could kill us on a hot track. We can also made on track ARB fine adjustment. If on hot weather, if it's not stable I would go for Soft then. We don't really have to bother about tires I think since we are changing at every stint.

I've also change the brake bias at 56.5 instead of 57.1. It's also a setting that we can adjust as we want.

Another test I did is fuel saving! I've ran 10 laps with the Engine Map at 1 (full power) and I had 11.8 gal left when I stopped my car on the pit. After, I did 10 laps with Engine Map at 2 (fuel saving) for the infield part only (corner 1 to 6) after I switched to Engine Map 1 for the remaining of the circuit. When I stopped on the pit, I had 12 gal left. I was doing the same kind of time, maybe .3 or .4 slower. The difference between Engine Map 1 and 2 is mainly on acceleration, so it's kind of good to run that engine map in the infield. It is really something we should consider. Maybe we can run an extra lap per stint.

Also, with the traffic, in the Oval section, we can maybe run Engine Map 2 and use draft to get to top speed quickly! It is something I'll do in race. On the first few laps, I will probably run Full Power so we can fight and get a decent gap between our opponent.

Just put down 50 laps or so. definitely liking the car with less ARB like JB said...

Ran 1:38.6 finally and could keep it there in the 38s for quite a few laps

I like the fuel talk also JB, that might be something that will create 1 less stop after 24hrs and something we should
definitely consider!

Also do we have a paint yet to put in trading paints and what # will everyone/we DP drivers be using?

Gonna start this by saying again that I'm sorry that I miss to register the team. You can't believe how I hate myself right now. I'm not expecting you to forgive me as I don't deserve it. I failed as a leader... I had only 1 task, and I failed. I would like to say this is lesson learn and I that I will know for next time, but I'm not even sure if there will be a next time...

I've been thinking about it since a few weeks, I think it's time for me to take a long break. When I can't even manage to do a simple task as register a team for the most important event of the year, it's time to step away. With the baby coming, 2 university classes per week, new job promotion + parental classes, I'm at a point in my life where I can't even spend time for me and my family. I'm extremely tired and it's probably why I caught the flu 4 times in the last 6 months.

I'll take someday to think about my future, and I'll call later a meeting with PRL management to think about the next few months. Official statement and management structure will be announced league wide after the meeting. Don't worry, I'll never give up on PRL, this has been by far one of my top priority in my life and it will continue. Management must talk about future of PRL as I will be less available.

I'm sorry again... I think it will take me weeks to move on from this mistake... I just hope that you guys will not give up on PRL, it's not PRL fault, it's MY fault.
