[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I like racing in the rain, I fell it is an equalizer. Slows the front runners down a bit and tightens up the field.[/font]

Unplug the internet to the rest of the house, turn on my ceiling fan, grab a pepsi and make sure my vaporizer is full of fluid...Invite, Invite, Invite....

Wheel setup...Thrust master with TH8A shifter, and Tp3A pro pedals...stock rim for now...all mounted on a custom made stand. Pulled up to my modified recliner
[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]3. What differs from your Race and Qualifying setup?[/font]
[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Usually just Fuel level and tire compound, always qualify on the soft tires. Then i usually change to the Medium compound tires for at least the first half of the race (or til I pit). another thing i will do on occasion is change (remove) Down force for the race. [/font]

I'll need to have a soft setup to get good feedback. It seems that BMW by default has an enormous spring to start with.
2.What is your pre race rituals? What kind of wheel setup (rig) do you have?
No wheel, all controller. Having a small dilema with throttle control on that note. Got speed sensitivity down to 78(the lower, the faster the steering) & it's been getting pretty strong at corner entries
3. What differs from your Race and Qualifying setup?
I typically run a high fuel load for practice so I don't get too many surprises. I noticed others' paces have been more relavent to light load during this period. I'm also too worried to play with tire pressure in qualifying since my pit crew likes to pull pranks in the race as it is.

1.What are your thoughts wet weather racing? How will you set up your car for this race?
- Not the biggest fan of wet racing but it will come down to the best time to go into the pit and make the proper tire change. Still determine the setup but everything seems to be coming along fine

2.What is your pre race rituals? What kind of wheel setup (rig) do you have?
- Working on getting a wheel but for now still running the controller

3. What differs from your Race and Qualifying setup?
- I will be running less fuel in qualify and running more fuel in Racing.

Using Full Wet during rain, with same set up as Soft in the suspension section.

Using a G920 wheel and pedals with Brake mod. We usually run a team session to figure notes and fuel usage and pit stategy.
3. What differs from your Race and Qualifying setup?
Only the amount of fuel.

A) Don't really like rain racing. B) Try to set car up for the dry part of the race.

2.What is your pre race rituals? What kind of wheel setup (rig) do you have?

A) Set up my racing area with Android pad using Crew Chief app and I pad using Pcars dash app then drink a beer. I am
using a Thrustmaster TX wheel base with the 599 rim and the T3PA pro pedals with a Ricmotech load cell for the brake.


3. What differs from your Race and Qualifying setup?
A) Low fuel

Great race guys. Good racing with you McNasty for the first half of the race.

Unfortunately, I had to pit twice... again. I was changing the pit strategy mid race and my thumb must've slipped and changed Change Tires to No. Still happy with my result as it is my first podium. I had that taste of first place though and I'm coming for ya at Brno ;)

Can't wait until next week!

Congrats to Mcnasty for the win and to JP for 3rd. Had the best race of the season so far and it was needed after last weeks flip. Car was flawless. Ran the rear tires in the rain at around 114 C the 1st 14 laps and they held together perfectly. Decided to gamble and put the slicks on and never looked back. Car was consistent 1:55 to 1:56 (around .5 + or -) for the rest of the race (and it felt awesome to hear for a change that I need to slow down because I'm to fast. Never heard that before in my 3 season career Thanks JP). I look forward to BRNO.
