Been doing multi-car races, so I figured it was time for a spec car . As always, the tune is open you just have to run the specified parts list. Should be a fun time, the car is pretty easy to control un-tuned. Hoping we have a decent turn-out.
Add race brakes for bias adjustment maybe?

What was your last lap time? And did you manage to check on the distance between us?

For those of you not in the know, we made him stay in 6th gear for the entire final lap, with him way out in first and me in 2nd. When we started the lap, he was 8xxx feet in front of me, last I checked towards the end it was around 3000. I think my times steadily decreased as we relaxed and talked too much. I'm not terribly fast if there's no one around me to stay in front of or chase after.

9:20 in top gear came down to 2000 feet in the end.

Yeah if I have someone faster then me but not terrible faster I will watch their line a couple laps and figure out where I'm losing time at.

That sounds about right, 10 seconds per 1000 feet. It's sad that it still would have taken half a 10 mile lap to catch you.

yeah... it was so spaced out... my times decreased from talking/boredom...

I can't wait for the spec series, this should be interesting. I say for Justin in the next race should be stuck in 4gear the entire time. now there is a HANDY CAP Lolz.

hustler and I looked over the NASA Spec Z rules and the parts are according to the rules. Shooting for realistic here. Besides with braking like this it'll make for interesting over-taking

This Sunday I'll be coming back from Greenville,SC. I hope to be back in time, but I may not be. You guys can start without me if it gets close to 10pm EST.
