Fortunately for you both (and for a few others), neither of you gained any points.

But if anyone lost out more missing this round, it would be Rick. Because now he only has 2 rounds to make up the 11 points he needs to catch/pass up Greg. Judging by the data, Rick should have an edge this next round. The last round however, could go either way.

Check your powerslide sensitivity in the Control Settings. I keep mine at 4 with my wheel base at 1500 and running medium tires.

It takes a while to learn how to back it in and then go into a power slide without crashing. Pick your best track and just practice trying to back it in over, and over, and over, and over again.

So maybe my 1420 wheel base is hurting my powerslide stability. Hrm. Practice may be in order.

front and rear suspension settings as well as tire compounds also affect said stability...

Yup. 1420 is pretty short. I'd bring it out to 1480 and go from there.

Like Henry said, suspension and tire settings play a role as well.

Front: 7
Rear: 9

Both Medium tires.

That should be a good generic setup for anyone wanting to learn how to back it in and powerslide.

I'm not so sure it would've mattered much, Henry. You made my work for it, man. I think you would've been right up there with both Greg and Rick had they raced.

If anyone gained more from Rick and Greg being out, it was Sparty!

Did someone say "Asian"?

I love me some Asian.

That's why I have one.
