Drivers' comments

Not sure Jani but I dont think so. Ive practiced with this patch for a while now and my times with it are pretty close to the times without it. There might be some dynamics change to how the tires operate.

Good question tho so you should post it over at SRMZ in the dirtgear thread and maybe Olaf has an answer. Now that we are using this and he is driving again there might be a possibility of further development of the patch.

Had a few more laps offline. changed the setup slightly, and managed to near my old PB -- 3:30!!

But I switched the patch off for these laps, as I felt the car more stable without it. Is it possible that Olaf's patch lower the grip by default, even with 0 tire wear?

Lol , no one survived passed lap 6 but fun for a short while.

Official season starts in august @ Kyalami.

woohoo, i stopped for my coffee then by the time i was back i was forced to retire... i would have liked to continue, as i did many times before. i think i shouldn't have stop in neutral as it triggered a tire change...

We are racing via IGOR tonight since VROC is still offline.

IP: (for those who prefer the local option)

Chatroom IGOR = #hies
Qualifying starts 1900 CET.

We havent hosted much via IGOR and experienced a server crash yesterday but that might be a track issue as well. Hence the test on this particular track. Should we experience a crash we will meet up in the chatroom and take it from there.

This will be crazy. I've just had a practice and I can tell that the loss of grip was recognizable as soon as in my 2nd measured lap. Even if you can avoid the dirt in the esses, those turns wear the tires heavily. I'm really curious how much lap I can take with one set of tires :D

Side note: I'm 6 seconds slower than my 9yo chassis and personal best lap... 3:35 so far in the Ferrari.

Race requirement : the dirtgear patch (pitstop71(dg)

Server is working well , patch is working well and the live stream is shaping up nicely so come august it should be green across the board. Welcome!
