True Nick. That was just bad luck with the 2st pistons, been there done that! But you had great steady pace this race!

I did - piss slow hahahahaa! I was trying to work on my poor consistency which is my main problem in races. When you passed I just let you go and tried not to think about it. Fortunately you had some unfortunate spills that my consistency gave me the advantage.

I only got 2nd by lapping everyone except you, so I should count myself lucky really  ::)

PS the ride-through is investigated, explained and reported in this thread http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=2295.msg32381#msg32381

I sure had some weird crashes and a few stupid once caused by myself. Couldn't get the grips on the first 4-5 laps and also had a runaway bike after running into Albert Antoni that was staying in the middle of the track looking back and looked like he would move and then he didn't so i couldn't avoid him, then bike ranaway down the backstraight for a goddamn minute!! Well that was just bad luck and a race incident, so you really had the win here god damn 2st engines!!

Well don't call it lucky, call it great steady pace Nick! with your steady 1.55-1.56 times and no crashes(?) you managed to pass everyone with a lap, pretty impressive! :)

Lol! Well pretty much it :D and you sure had it if it wasn't for that Faarcking 2ST engines :P

Hawk

I decided to try the hard tyre on the front for this race but couldn't find any real grip with it, so I gambled with a setup that turned out to make the handling even worse than in Qualy(and that was bad enough!). lol
Anyway I spent most of the race battling severe under-steer on the front and front end washouts. I just could get in any comfort zone at all for this one. I should've stuck with Sundays race setup with the soft front and hard rear. Lol

This track is in for a serious upgrade.... That #10 corner is a lean and hope job. Lol.  A couple of other corners a little dodgy too..... Just too frustrating.  ::)

Congrats to Meyer for the win, and Nick and Grooveski for the podium. I believe it was your first podium Grooveski? Well done mate!  ;D

Really tuff luck Nick on the engine seizure... You didn't borrow that petrol 2 stroke fuel mix from Meyer did you?!  :-X  ;D ;D

Thanks again to Nick and the MMA for always doing a fantastic job in promoting and hosting the OC races. Appreciated.  ;) 8)

Looking forward to Mugello on Sunday!  ;D

Hawk.





Grooveski

Well done Meyer!    ;D
...and Nick.  No luck.  :(  Like everyone else I saw how far ahead you were.  You must have been gutted.

Happy days in this motorhome.  Beer is flowing and I can't wipe the cheesy grin off my face.   :D

Not a great race to be honest.  Pace was down from sunday and I was involved in a bit of a pileup first time through the bus-stop section.
...then it all went pretty well for nearly half the race - was sitting in 2nd for a while then lost it to a recovering Meyer.  Having him come by without all the blue flags was a novelty.   ;D
Then the second half didn't go so well.  Fell off a couple of times - silly wee mistakes .
...and kept expecting someone to come by and steal my podium.  Nerves were building and times were increasing...   :-\

...but everyone else must have been having a real bad day.  :P

Bad luck with the setup mate!!

Thank you, had a pretty tough race! many mistakes first few laps, then settled down and few crashes in the last 20-ish laps. and good pace around 1.52-1.53 times :)

Haha i think he took the petrol 2 stroke fuel mix he mixed up for me at the Mantorp S80 race when i had the engine seizure at lap 3 :P

And Grooveski! VERY NICE RACE FROM YOU! You did very well and was a pleasure to see you doing so well and steady laps :)

Yeh well done Groovy have a beer for me pls!

I could see you struggling there Hawk. On Sunday I had to push so hard to try and catch I kept falling but today it was clear to see you having a hard time. Damn that tyre and setup choice!

Earlier today me and Meyer discussed the engine problem and I changed my gearing specifically to help avoid it going Bang. I had a really nice race setup (for me) which wasn't as fast as Sunday but a lot easier and consistent to ride. I will have to blame Alex Barros. 2 engine failures under his colour-scheme. Next time I make my own skin ;)

Lol... Yeah, I was struggling big time with my setup tonight, but it happens when gambles are taken. I should've known better really. Hehe

I'm wondering if you watch the replay back of your race in 1st person view to see if and were you may have over-revved the engine too much over the length of the race. If it turns out you didn't damage the engine through over-revving then I suspect something is not right somewhere.

I've noticed there are a few riders who tend to regularly blow the 2 stroke engine, but I suspect in those cases it's due to riding the 2 stroke like they ride the 4 stroke. But in your case I'm sure you don't have the habit of blowing engines, so I would be interested to know what could have caused it. In fact I think I'll also watch the replay back of you in first person mode and see if I can spot anything. Just wondering too if you noticed that yellow warning light on that indicates a high engine temp, or maybe even indicates engine wear(not certain what it's for really?).

Hawk.

Yes I usually pride myself on not being an engine breaker. I think most times it is caused by downshifting too fast and having the tacho needle hard against the stops during deceleration.  I do remember early in the race a double accidental downshift either from button bounce or nervous pinkie which may have added up to an overall 'failure' limit.

I assume the yellow light is a temperature warning I think I tested that before on the grid somewhere. 

I am sure it was my own fault (or others would have the same issue) but I don't know why and that is the annoying bit. Lemme know if you see anything  ;)

Never noticed this before but if you watch the replays in Rear Wheel view you can hear the knee sliders really good hehe.

Congrats all  :)

Nick, all blown engines i've seen in GPB 2T  are from too fast downshifting.  Stop the bike with brakes not with the engine  ;D

Ive found to get rid of the stupid bits of legs in rear wheel view just alter the 3rd setting for the camera for the rear wheel position to around -0.55 to bring the cam past the leg, makes it so much more enjoyable to watch. Same on other bikes in camera.cfg.

Varese camera cfg for rear wheel cam:    position = -0.23, 0.65, -0.55

I dont think it effects online bike mismatch???

Nice find DD. I don't know if it mismatches maybe we can try it on the MotoGeePee.  ;)
