PostSubject: West Point 84 checking in   Wed 14 Sep 2011, 7:45 pm

Had a blast racing with WarEagle Sr. and War Eagle Jr. tonight and they suggested I join. He was even nice enough to help me out with a few tips for the VM Time Attack League.

WARNING! I am slower than molasses in the winter, but I love clean, competitive racing (by competitive, I mean you have to give me a head start or drive at 3/4 throttle).

If you have any spaces for old slow guys, I'd love to join your team.

Thanks!

Welcome!! The only bad thing here is that those slow guys who hang around here usually end up getting faster! It's the nature of the beast!! LOL!!

Glad to have you!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

WarEagle, did you get those 03 Focus tunes?

Been working on meeting the time attack challenge. Results so far:

Track: Maple Valley
Car: C 354 Ford Focus '09
Time to beat: 1:45:00
My time: 1:44:694 (squeeking in just under the bar)

Track: Mugello
Car: R3 789 Ferrari FXX
Time to beat: 1:46:00
My time: 1:47.302 (this one is tough - my throttle control sucks)

Track: Catalunya
Car: B 471 SEAT Leon SC
Time to beat: 2:02:00
My time: 2:02:879 (need to find a better line and convince myself to use it)

Next is

Track: Iberian
Car: A 548 Mercedes SL65
Time to beat: 55:500
My time: xx:xx:xx (i'm predicting my best will be 57.xxx)

I know I'm not on the team yet, but could one of you guys confirm the target (after warm up) air pressure for FM3? I've heard everything from 32 PSI to 40 PSI. If it's a EZT secret, I understand.

i havent checked to see if i got the tunes. thanks for sending it to me. Now the tire pressures should be some where around 32 when they heat up. i will be on later today and i can help u with the tests if u want.

Guys,
Thanks for the support. I never realized how hard this was going to be. I know I'm slow, but between learning Forza and the Fanatec wheel, it's been a real struggle.

I have top 500 (I'm exactly 500th) time on one track (Motegi Speedway) that I did on August 12, 2011.

If I combine this with my two completed time attacks, would this qualify?

Track: Maple Valley
Car: C 354 Ford Focus '09
Time to beat: 1:45.00
My time: 1:44.694

Challenge 3
Track: Iberian
Car: A 548 Mercedes SL65
Time to beat: 55.500
My time: 55.423

Thanks!

You have completed 2 of the 3 required , with challenge six you have to complete 3 top 500 or 1 top 100. Or just finish another time trial. I would suggest the seat sc on cat for your 3rd time trial.

Yo WP, if you are struggling, might i suggest for the top 500 you should try to do a sidewinder track?

Thanks for the advice guys.

With a LOT of help from WarEagle (again, thank you Sir), I have finally completed the challenges. I tired really hard to get Catalunya, but kept screwing up the last two turns (couldn't get the turn in correct on the first, which screwed up the second). Anyway here are my results.

Track: Iberian
Car: A 548 Mercedes SL65
Time to beat: 55.500
My time: 55.423

Track: Maple Valley
Car: C 354 Ford Focus '09
Time to beat: 1:45.00
My time: 1:44.694

Top 500 times

Tom,
I sincerely appreciate the suggestion. In fact, I'm already participating in the Time Attack series at VM (even better - last week I managed to NOT come in last; I beat WarEagle, hehe).

But unfortunately the rest of the current VM series/events (I looked at all of them) conflict with other personal and business obligations.
