    I think I screwed up

    Last night at the end of Race #1 someone ran out of gas and stayed on the track for a while after the end of the race, I got impatient and restarted warm-up so I could do my admin duties of grid change and race length change. In so doing I think I killed the replay for Race #1.
    Can anyone who saves replays look and see if they have a replay for Race #1?
    If someone has it please contact me so we can make it available for everyone's enjoyment.

    I chose the Radical last night.

    Mistakes were made.

    Sorry Don, I have replays off.

    I chose the car I'm good with and mistakes were still made. in Q and race 1.
    I was lucky Jason got in trouble by himself otherwise he was poised to take 8th place from me (in R1).

    In R2 I stepped on my toes again at start and with another slow start lost two positions. After passing "Struggling-with-Radical" Greg the fight for P1 was on between Matt and myself. I had few opportunities but decided not to force the issue, waited for pit stops instead. Pitted 1 lap early hoping for an undercut and when Matt came out 5 seconds behind I was surprised and relaxed a bit . Taking it easy on the tires rest of the stint, finishing 4 seconds in front.

    I was mad at myself for the mistakes I did during qualy and first race (too embarrassed to explain here), but all worked out for the main race.

    I was the guy on track out of gas at the end of race 1.
    I wasn't sure whether to hit escape or not. But eventually I checked on Discord with folks and escaped out.
    I record replays, but race 1 was missing for me too.

    I also made several mistakes last night. Bumped Tom Nasella in the first race. Waited for him and then had fun trying to catch him (which I never did).
    Race 2 was pathetic for me. I messed up in a turn and think I collected Tom again and Don. I had major damage so slowly made my way back to the pits. But in the pit, the crew just changed tires and fueled up and didn't repair anything! I tried forward/reverse a few times to try to get a second pit stop initiated but it didn't work. So I had to drive another entire lap with the broken car to get back to the pits for repair. In the process I got a stop/go for speeding. At least I turned off the "serve penalty" so the crew repaired the car on pit 2 and I then ran another lap and came in for pit 3 to serve the penalty. What a nightmare!
    After that I was just having fun trying to keep up to people but yielding whenever the blue flags came out.
    Putting that night behind me!

    Sorry to Ben Dutton for the contact that ended his race 2. I lost front end grip coming through turn five and couldn't hold the inside line. Cold tires and lack of car control were the issue but I really shouldn't have been contesting that corner in the first place.

    No race 1 replay on my machine ether.

    I really need to up my pitstop game. Over fueled by 20 liters and sat for a little longer than i should have waiting for fuel. Also lost a couple seconds entering pits because somebody crashed in the pit entry lane. Result Jon got to far ahead and drove mistake free,could not close the 5 second gap. Very well done.

    For the guy or guys who was interested in learning the rf2 new material system,here is a great tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=PGYWUJQB00o

    Race 1, had some fun following Dave for several laps but stayed near the back of the pack for the rest of the race. Race 2, I spun after 2 laps in the first corner right in front of Frank and he had no place to go. Sorry Frank, I know you had to pit to repair the damage. I pitted but didn't wait for all the damage to get fixed which was a mistake, so I quit after that.

    Congrats podium

    I tried Porsche setups from helpful fast guys and I remained back of the pack, but that's my doing and not the setups. So, I totally forgot the two race format and was way heavy on fuel for the first race and for the secnd race I ran out of fuel and made several stops to refill, but ran out on the last lap anyway. Still had some fun and managed to stay out of the way--mostly.

    Just watched your stream Greg, and best quote from it is; "10 minutes left in this race and I'll never race this car again"
    That's a promise and if you touch that Radical again I will remind you.
