    My best so far is 1:30.016 in the BMW... I don't think it has much more! (full race trim)

    Mike I took your car out and ran a few laps...maybe 6 or 8 and turned some high 126's and low 127's(mostly 7's )
    You just gotta git up on the wheel a little son
    Below is a base setup I created for you to try w/ 32 laps of fuel ( go out and run 30 and make sure its enough).
    The steering lock is all the way up cause I have a 14" steering wheel so you may need to adjust it a little.
    Also give the car a lap or two to settle in
    I have to do the same w/ the Capri.
    Now...just to let you know... that 125 was my fastest lap ever at RA,most of my laps are in the 6's or low 7's.
    Work on this setup a little and I bet you get in the 6's no prob!
    We got a couple weeks!

    Did you send some alien blood along with the setup?

    Get up on the wheel indeed! I'll get up on your wheel!

    I think I heard a Gauntlet hit the ground.

    The key to these old school cars w/ old school tires is not to push 'em to hard in the turns...wait for the tires to grip and stay within that threshold.
    IE. let the car roll through the turns and then stand on it asap coming out.
    "Slow in...Fast out" is my motto

    I tried that BMW setup to see if I liked the car any better and I noticed a significant difference in the large and small engine versions of the BMW.

    The 337 HP version is pretty tight and easy to drive with Bob's setup, but the 430 HP is very loose. FYI, it may have been meant for the lighter car.

    No..actually I created that setup for Mikes BMW CSL 430HP
    The car settles in real nice after a few laps
