Mine locked-up three times today.
I think that's a new record for me.

Got down to 1:44.1 with 3/1 brakes.

Can I still register for this event if I haven't participated an any series event as of yet?

Im assuming to submit a qualifying time, I have to use the make/model and track for that race?

Thanks for your help.

Yes. Very Happy

Make/model yes but there's nowhere on the Q form for track, just the 'event'.

That's especially true of what happens when people come race here. Don't fret, even the fast guys don't bite. And of course, we're more than happy to help.

No ABS is a big challenge, don't feel bad.

I'm a firm believer in learning on the job. Just come out and race with us. During the race consistency is more important than top lap times anyway.
At least for us 'normal' people; the aliens deliver consistently insane lap times. But we only see them at the start and shortly before the end of the race, when they reappear in our mirrors. Razz

Truth. Time spent on track with guys faster than us is how we get faster. Cool

Thanks for your help.

Hey man, welcome. Just click on the red "Register for this Event" link in the opening post and put in yer info. You'll have to put in a time. We just put in 9:99.999. Unless we end up with 2 didvisions, no need to do an actual Q run. We'll do a live before the race for starting grid position. I'll try to add you to my friends list later. We've got practice rooms up a lot of times for the races coming up and will try to put up the time/date before hand for each race. There should be someone on tonight I'm sure getting ready for this race. You can also ask for a "track walk" and we'll take you around the track and look at teh best line, the brake points and so on. They're a huge help. Everyone here will help ya if they can. Very Happy And don't be afraid to ask questions, and especially don't be discouraged.

Hope to see ya on later,

Wall

i started out with the 3/1 balance as mentioned earlier. I went up to 5/1 after a while cuz the rear kept comin around on me.

thanks for the encouragement. ill look for a prractice room and continue running untill i can string some consistant laps together.
