The JP first line is a great engine to start with.

OS XZ stock can also be a very good option.
thats right, picco react diffrent depending on the climte , the setting for each race will change too much. on the other side nova base like rb,jp,max and also the novas and os are more friendly to tune

My daughter and I raced the GLC. This was our first time to this track. Loran finished 5th in the B and I finished 7th. Our cars were good and Loran logged our whole setup. I will scan it in and post it here. I will say now that we used the kit gearing and with our NovaRossi 353 09's, this was just right. Tire wear for us in practice and Friday's quals was about 1.5mm for warm up and a five minute qual. Saturday's qual's we only saw about 1mm of tire wear and just a bit more on the left rear. We ran BSR 38 fronts and 42 rears. In the B main (only 20 minutes long) tire wear was pretty low and I miss read the track and should have started with a smaller tire. Our cars peaked too late. We started with 60.5 rears and 58 fronts. More later. It's a great track and the program ran smoothly.

38f's and 42 r's are the ticket at toledo. If you like a little push you can use 40 fronts. I started the main with 57.5 front and 58.7 rears. I ran the c main only 15 minutes. Car came off at 56.2 fronts and 57.5 rears. My set-up could have been better. So I won't post it.

Can you please post it so we have an idea what to do to our cars? Also, if you think it could've been better, please note what would you have done to your car to improve the setting. Or atleast describe what you did not like about your car during the main.

Here is the setup we ran at this years GLC. The cars were good but there is more in them. I think a little more tire work and I would have liked to try 600 oil in the rear when the traction was up. Like I said earlier, I should have started us out on smaller tires and we should have pused harder at the start but that's the way it goes. Onto the Nats.

I ran 40 front and 42 rears for the main and during quals I ran the 38f and 42 r's; I ran harder fronts so I cut my tires lower to get the car in the sweet spot sooner during the main. I wanted my car to rotate better; I believe I ran too much rear toe (4 deg) I think I should have used 2.5 to 3 degrees(my rear end was super planted) I add some droop to the rear to get the car to dive more into the turn this worked; but only during moderate to fast corners. I wish I would have used the 138'b rather than the 164's I like the way the 138b's turn in. I had other problems also; my two speed springs wore out once I changed the springs this was fine. All in all my car was decent but it could have been alot faster. The two spots on the track you want to concour is the sweeper and coming onto the crosstown into the carousel. If your car is good in these two areas you will turn fast laps
