Ruf C-Spec Training

I've been putting some concerted effort into learning how to keep the Ruf C-Spec pointed the correct way on the track. Along with on the track practice, I've also been studying the art of setup tuning. Two great resources:

  • The Ruf C-Spec Setup Guide thread
  • The iRacing Setup Guide pdf

    I began by focusing on Daytona Short, as it is the first track on the schedule for next season and it seemed like it should be easy to come to grips with. It took some time, but I got myself comfortable with a setup and was able to put in consistent ~40.5 second laps. My best was just into the 39's. I'm not sure how that will match up against the pole time, considering weather will play a big part it isn't even worth thinking about too much.

    I then took that setup over to Laguna Seca, the 2nd track on the schedule, and turned a few laps there. It took a while before I was able to cleanly get around corners 2 and 3, but I feel like I've got a decent handle on the car now.

    Note: It now appears they've decided to change the order from what was selected before.... Now 2015 S2 will kick off with Mount Panorama. That should be a crazy crashfest to get everyone excited for a new fresh season! Sigh.

    Last week the Ruf Cup is running at Suzuka, so I jumped into some practice sessions so I could compare my pace with other people. The pole time is 1:04.7. I've been able to get down into the high 1:08's. I don't feel too bad about being 4 seconds off the fastest drivers on the service. When I check the qualy times for the Div 4 drivers, they best of them are doing low 1:07's.
