    That really depends on how many mistakes I make..........good clean laps and they stay green for a long time, screw up and slide it a bit and I see yellow way too soon

    Never let up for a second....or that may be where you finish!

    Not really tried to go full stint in this car (with the newest tire version). Traditionally in rF2 there will be noticeable drop in grip level when tire wear go below 90%. After that both grip and wear diminish gradually, assuming you are not abusing tires. Cliff is usually around 15-20% (or slightly below even depending on mod). But actual cross-over between good lap times vs lap times that are costing you the race is probably around 70%

    Interesting what Jon said. I did run an entire stint, well until complete tire failure anyway. They (the left front) did in fact fall off quickly at 20% remaining. That happens to coincide with 17 laps, and That should be just about half race distance. I should mention that I set my cars up more toward understeer than oversteer, and I can't keep tires on the car to save my life.

    edit: They go yellow fast, and at 17 laps I was deep into red territory. Even when red they still seems OK for a while. But like I said: I destroy my tires for sport.

    I am way out of pace, about 6/7 seconds slower than the leaders, so I will stay off the track till I can get more practice and be a bit more competitive. Good luck, Gents!
