    Post Donny thoughts

    Had 3rd day at Donny yesterday on 2016 model and thought to share/ask some random questions.

    Managed to drop my lap time from 1:49 to 1:43, thanks to couple of tips from experienced riders.

    I love Dunlop D212 rear, but it's pain in the ass to get the right settings right. It just asks to go either hot or cold tear if you're off on rear shock or pressure.

    Start of the day was cold, with ambient temp going to around 22-23C towards 2pm. I started from 25psi, went down to ~22psi. Still managed to get a slight hot tear.
    At this stage, I think I need to re-think/re-adjust my rear shock settings. Just need to figure out how exactly.

    random things that I noticed:

    1. engine brake in slick mode is massive. I think I wish I could control it and have it set to be less.
    2. ORO discs/Ferodo XRAC work great
    3. it's extremely helpful when a skillful rider explains you lines/throttle control upfront

    May RapidBike Race has adjusted engine braking setting fwiw, as set up by HMRacing.

    1:43 is very quick, impressed.

    Slick mode, or the slick engine setting within User mode, is the least amount of engine breaking possible on an RR.
    To my knowledge the only way to reduce it further is via an RCK3 or with a RapidBike Race module as Alex says

    Is it still the least engine breaking of all available modes on the 17+ bikes?

    I found that engine braking is too hard at:

    - mclean's
    - melbourne hairpin
    - goddards

    Or, I just need to account for it when braking into the turn...
