Some early sets to play with for the holiday weekend.

iRacing has improved the baseline setup and it's a lot easier to drive now. With the iRacing baseline I had a 1:24'0, with the MidOhio set I had a 1:23'8, and with the MidOhioR set I had a 1:23'7. Probably a lot more work to do to find the right set to fit your driving needs but there wasn't a whole lot of difference for me between very different sets and the baseline was much safer to drive. If you are struggling switch back to the baseline and start from there. With this track it's all about being consistent and staying off the grass (well that's pretty much true everywhere) and you will be sure to have a great race.

Do you happen to recall the track temp?

Paul and I just did a quick run with a 109 track temp. I was able to get down to 1'23.5s with a modified baseline setup. I'm starting to like theat new baseline set a lot more now. I made a couple of adjustments (attached) and it seems pretty stable. Paul was able to get a 1'23.4 with a looser set, so you definitely can gain a little bit of time with a more aggressive set but maybe not a whole lot more (unless you are a super fast driver like Eric and Kenny  ;))

Speaking of track temps, it looks like iRacing has every race for this car at afternoon default (hot track) which to me can be a little annoying. Anyone have any thoughts about mixing it up for the rest of the season?

We could mix it up with a standing start.

Hey guys, I created a poll for changing the race start times (Race Start Time Poll).
