Apologies for the short notice!

I will be hosting a recruitment and practice race on Thursday March 15. Please invite anyone and everyone - the more drivers we have, the more fun it will be.

 This will be a good opportunity for us to get some laps in together and work on learning and developing this car.

Pre-Race Interview
1. We have changed cars. What is the biggest change for you as a driver?
2. Do you use telemetry regularly?
3. When it comes to car setup - do you prefer a tight car or a looser car with move oversteer? Why?

What is this business braking and downshifting on a oval?!? The learning curve feels real my friends, I apparently got very used to the Pro Mazda! Looking forward to seeing you guys on track.

1. We have changed cars. What is the biggest change for you as a driver?
More power. With the PM, you really had to work hard to light up the rears and spin the car. (My driving was a good example of such hard work).. with this car I find I am paying far more attention to what my right foot is doing. Instead of smashing the throttle full on, I am having to be more smooth and gradual with my throttle application.

2. Do you use telemetry regularly?
I am hit and miss with the telemetry. I have it, I somewhat know how to use it, but I never find the time to get enough meaningful data to analyze...

3. When it comes to car setup - do you prefer a tight car or a looser car with move oversteer? Why?
I am 'that guy' who sits in the middle. I can handle either, but I prefer a car that walks the line between the two styles.

LOL! Yeah I tried running last night for maybe 35 to 40 mins to find 2 things. I really screwed up on my paint and I am going to need a lot of work to do anything close to non-embarrassing (if that is a word, we all know my struggle with the English language) racing.

1. We have changed cars. What is the biggest change for you as a driver?
PAINT SCHEME!!!! The layout in the template is funky and is hard to line up. Oh and the driving is different too but I have only tried New Hampshire so far and UGH!!!!! Pulled a setup from setup sync and it is decent. I will share tonight but no promises.

2. Do you use telemetry regularly?
For setups I will use it if I am struggling aka if nothing in my vast knowledge of adjustments in the setup are making changes. Biggest thing I use it for is ride height. If anyone needs a template to use on Motec let me know as I have a pretty good one I downloaded.

3. When it comes to car setup - do you prefer a tight car or a looser car with move oversteer? Why?
LOOSE!!!! Understeer is for limp wrested p.... it's just not for me. I like throwing the car around a little more.
