Here we go again... The only question is did they kill the car like they did the last time they messed with aero/drag.

I don't think so...Suzuka was not the best track to analise, but i saw some good pace there today...so i believe it was just a small adjustment.

Can we switch cars still because of the BOP change?

There will be no further changes this season. We have just three rounds left.

Theres nothing in the Specific series rules that says that. On top of that Jerome said this in the last bop change ''[font=Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif]If you have previously changed it in the previous BoP this season, you are also allowed to change again''  So I don't see why you're not allowing car changes. [/font]

If I'm not mistaken, in the rules it says that PRL reserves the right to make BoP adjustments of their own no?

I understand it would be hard to do since iRacing is so vague on what exactly they change, but it's a possible avenue to explore no?

Just throwing it out there. I'm driving the Ford whether it's fastest or a boat anchor.

I usually don't write on specific topics in the forum, for that there are specific channels in the League. But this time I can't let it go.
For me an apology after the race is enough, but the attitude of RSR driver Brandon Wilson both on and off the track leaves a lot to be desired. This time he ruined my race by an inexplicable rejoin to the track.
The administration of the league is a witness that I myself have reported to teammates when I consider that they are a danger to other drivers and to the prestige of PRL.
That said, I hope measures will be taken in this regard.

Good race...my first time at this track. Got an P6 for my surprise.

Tried to keep my pace and got a few freebies from the guys ahead :)

The race start was amazing...congrats to all

Unfortunately I will be out in Sonoma, so see u last round in Road Atlanta

Cheers

Always like Mid-Ohio. I had confidence a podium was in the offering after practice, but qualifying didn't go so hot with two spins. Still, P4 was OK to start but I just didn't have the comfortable race pace I thought I'd have. Didn't change the car and as it turned out, I doubt I had the pace to run with Rodrigo, Nicolas or Carl in the end. I know I could have gotten it into the high 18's, but not in a way that was comfortable to run for 60 mins. Would've been more risky than I was willing to be so I ran the race to my pace.

Unfortunately for me, this tire seems to perform for guys who like the car neutral to loose and you seem to have to set it up more toward the loose side than I like. I prefer it a little on the snug side and to roll the center of the corner and get back to the power early. With the lack of rear grip I keep fighting, that's hard for me to do. Obviously the car has pace so it's down to the driver to figure out how to extract it.

I think some of that speaks to the quality of the field in PRL. On any given race night there are 8-10 drivers in with a shot at the podium.

Sonoma should be interesting since I've never turned a lap there.
