  1. Does your right knee hurt as well? Out of personal experience, I know my knees wouldn't like 80kgs brake pressure, but I had an arthroscopy a few years ago after severely misjudging a very simple football catch (I was the goalie). I think it's good to try and think long term, if there's anything to do to save your knees later in life they'll be thankful. Running can actually be pretty good for knees if using the correct technique and shoes. Have you ever tried muscle strengthening exercises? There's a few specific ones for the muscle groups that activate the joint, it helps offload the pressur
  2. Those look like great seats give us a wave if you're on TV
  3. Such a great track to be your first! My advice is get as close to the track as possible. I was at the 2013 British GP, got a place on the hill by Stowe, good visibility but it was just too far. Halfway through the race I walked down the hill and found a spot in the fence by the braking zone of the Hangar straight and that was unbelievable, just a few meters from the cars, these cars need to be experienced up close, very visceral experience, the sense of speed, obviously the sound, but that year was the last V8 year so that helped. It's different for everyone though, if you're able
  4. A speedy recovery to both @davejmand @daifuco! Hope you guys are ok
  5. Ah thanks! I actually tried both SteamVR and Oculus, no luck. I'll leave it off for now, my head still hurts from trying to get ACC to run well in my system, need a break from niggly PC stuff
  6. @davejm and other VR people, did you manage to run XIV Assistant (fuel overlay) in VR? I installed Simhub, and added XIV as an overlay. It shows up in-race if I open the game via Simhub, but that doesn't start the game in VR. I get no overlays if I start it in VR through Steam. Also couldn't figure out how to bind a key to toggle it on/off, I went on the "controls and events" tab but can't find the correct command to bind it to, XIV doesn't seem to be listed. Totally new to Simhub, am I missing something really basic?
  7. Ooooff yeah can see how annoying that would be! Bring on Monza
  8. I really like it, but this is coming from a guy who finds Monza uninspiring and unsatisfying to drive so... I like twisty/flowy/roller-coaster style tracks, long straights give me too much time to over think stuff And these are two of my favourite tracks to drive
  9. VR people, just found a way to squeeze a little bit more performance out of ACC, by turning off mirroring (monitoring on your flatscreen). documents>Assetto Corsa Competizione>Config Open vrsettings.json Change "spectator screen mode: 5" to "0" Used the Tray Tool performance HUD to measure change and got at least 5% extra performance headroom and my eyes also found it more stable, less stuttery. Could be significant to overall stability. Every frame counts for me!
  10. Yeah what a track! @texlex45hope you sort out your connection gremlins, it's a horrible feeling when it cuts out A bit frustrating to lose the lead as it felt I drove pretty well and probs made the least mistakes ever, but like @Erikpointed out my pace dropped off after the pitstops (that always happens to me in the endurance races) ... It's probably to do with not overinflating the tyres at the start to deal with the drop in temps and not being able to get them back in operating range after the stop so need to sort that. Slightly overfueled as well, so gonna give that fuel overlay
  11. Sorry for the long post, had a mega ACC session yesterday (5 hours -> VR graphics settings; 2 hours -> actual practice; self isolating like a boss) and had a couple of insights that might be helpful to others. First of all, a really simple advice from a Zermatt video that changed my mindset and I'm kicking myself for not having thought of that before, so simple and obvious it is. It's to do with visibility, say, when you can't see an apex because the windshield pillar is obscuring it. I used to think "I can't see the apex, where is it, how can I hit the perfect apex??" Zermat
  12. For the new guys, I made a custom livery for my Lexus as the game doesn't allow you to edit it in-game. If you're into this sort of stuff, here's the link to it: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Atird6NGsun_nRS2_qRBIYV_qNVY?e=Pt2kra Copy and paste contents of the "Cars" and "Liveries" folders into corresponding folders inside ...\Documents\Assetto Corsa Competizione\Customs PS: If anyone uses the Lexus ( @Pockets ?) I can share the original edit files or even change the colours for you. Only thing is other people will only see it if they download and drop those files in
  13. I try to rest the left leg on the clutch on the straights as the pedal is stiff enough and doesn't move (my clutch is deactivated in game anyways). I've spent a lot of time making sure my seating position is correct and comfortable, I like the wheel as close to me as possible, which means pedals are often too close for comfort on most rigs (I'm 6ft2). I've now managed to mount them at a really good position so my legs are straighter and relaxed. That makes a BIG difference on leg/knee/ankle tiredness, something to look into if your pedals are too close! If you sit high up or if you're legs are
  14. To add to the injury list, my Covid tests came back positive! I'm feeling a bit fluey but OK really, deffo had worse colds/flus than this (so far anyways - knock on wood) My flatmate is continuing to test negative which is great. Gonna take the opportunity and do a bit of CPU overclocking
