Yeah I like the look of the Indy and ultimately where I'd like to try and get to at some point.
So, I've ended up going for the Skippy. The tracks really were quite compelling and I figured why not go and see for myself (at least this way I can understand a bit better maybe the opposing views). I don't think it will make me worse of a driver down the line anyhow.
I've not done many laps as yet (Watkins Glen/Boot) - Initially, I found I couldn't lean on the car very much mid corner so I made some set up changes while I'm learning the circuit (bit more -camber in the front, bit more pressure in the fronts and less of SPO and also softened the rear ARB).
That really seemed to help - maybe I lucked into an easier set up overall.
After a 20 odd lap session I had it down into the 1:13's and I just know some corners/sections are way, way off. I'm in that nice little phase of track learning where I know I can go quite a bit faster yet without too much effort.
Interestingly the update for Season 2 was released yesterday which has made the car more stable off the throttle and quite different to the previous season. Another nice step improvement of the car.
Definitely worth revisiting for those that didn't get on with it previously
