Re: Round 3 Thoughts

Was an interesting round that for sure.

Had a fantasic battle with DruggedupDonkey and Bob Marvig in the first race,,was neck and neck for i dont know how many laps,,having done no prep for this round tune or track time wise i was defo pushed ot my limits,,,great race.

Second round was not so good. Dont know what casued it but i was slammed by 2/3 cars travelling at HUGE speed into the last hairpin and my race was over,,,be it lag or whatever,,i was pissed off.

However, these things happen. Next week i will defo put more prep time and hopefully show myself in a better light.

Hard cars to master these,,but the reward for wiring it proper is great

What a night! I wasnt too sure about this track to begin with, running practice laps and i thought it would be far too tight, but that just make for better racing i guess.

Turned out to be absolutely fantastic, the first race was a cracker, battling with Bob and Greg for 3 or 4 laps and i think we were all within about 200ft most of the time, managed to finish 6th. The second race was abit more placid, had the odd battle for a lap or 2 then the pits came, and i ended up battling with Deano for 2 or 3 laps, ended up 4th. Im happy with the results

Overall, i think its probably one of the best nights i've had on XPLR!

You done good Dave!

1st race I got shunted coming into the 1st corner, these things happen so it's not the end of the world managed to claw my way up to 3rd and though with lumpi wee till a little lag tap but me to far back.

2nd race I was getting through the field pretty quickly then there was the super lag smash which happened in front of me and after that I followed Raul through the pack before he set off into the distance and I took 2nd for that race. Bring on Road Atlanta Very Happy

Same as that dude. Was going great for a few laps through the first 2 sections then throw it all away on the last 3rr of the track. As was mentioned, these cars are nasty, but get it right and its so rewarding and lovely


I cant wait til next week Smile

I had 2 good races. Put under heavy pressure from my team mate in the 2nd race for 3rd. And watched as Mad Dog caught me up and then drove away in the first race for 2nd(cause EMW Raul kicks our ass). Mad Embarassed Crying or Very sad Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes Neutral Sad Shocked

I did check the crash, quite a few times from 2 different replays. It was lag 100%, the strangest I've seen. But no one is to blame. It's just one of those things and everyone caught up in it was extremely unlucky.
