Not requesting anything, genuine question

would love a slightly longer 6th gear....... I don't think there's been many legit overtakes in P3 so far since we are on rev limit before the end of the straight, but understand that modifying the cars any further is probably not ideal.

Also legit question, will the pit line be warnings or instant penalty like last year? I got 3 x stop go last year for just glancing it once, if it could please be warnings it would be greatly appreciated but I do understand the safety concerns.

Thanks.

Pitlane is just like any other cut track, so depends on speed and how much you use it. I would guess it would be a warning most of the time, but i have not tried it this season at all.
LMP3 speed, lets see - i´d be happy to see a few hotlaps etc before changing anything.

That would be great, i'll put some together and send you replays and data. Basically hits 271 at the moment, if that could be pushed to about 280 it may help the car in general but not impact P2s as much as the low downforce kit and 291 top speed does, and I know when we looked at the tall gearing on standard kit it didn't work at all so we almost need a middle gear ratio.

Was going to suggest something similar for le mans as well (but was going to wait till much closer) 291 will put it on limiter incredibly early and will possibly make it slower then GTE down the straights, so an extra 10kph or so there would really be handy too.

I'll send stuff to you by tomorrow morning :thumbsup: (y)

In the standing round 3 exists twice. Is this a bug or will this race be a double race (2*6 hours). Personally I hope the second answer is correct :D

I completely agree with that. If something reasonable can be done about that i'd be happy to help (but i don't know how to modify a mod though haha)
If not, we'll adapt to this gearing, ofc.

I dont think we want to change the actual car too much, but i have had some nice data from Shawn which i will review over the next couple of days.

Would it be possible to change the results in the "standings" slightly?
It would be nice to have teams show as DNF if they didnt complete the races. (If at all possible)
