    I've used the guide that was linked to the other day to work on the steering, that just needs fine tuning so it's a little smoother/less responsive. But need to figure out the throttle and brake as its not quite right. I can do laps of Monza fine enough and have been able to catch the car when it starts to go so that's reassuring. Currently lapping between 1:59 and 2:01 as I'm not confident in committing just yet

     

    Sounds good. Dont worry at all about laptimes for now. You can use safe and aggressive preset setups, just fine tune tyre pressures so that when driving they stay between 27.4-27.9 PSI. Around 30 PSI for wets. You can use high TC and ABS setting values: they are there to help you. Aero page settings have greatest influence on how the car behaves. All you need to know for now is that more wing = more downforce and understeer. Lower rear ride height = better stability and more understeer, higher rear height = less understeer.

    Ah I wonder if that's why he doesn't pop up in all the leagues?  I'm pretty sure some have stability control turned off in the server settings.

     

    I'll be sure to leave it on for (for our practice server and events) if that helps @wev, for when you do join us.

     

    That + possibly unwillingness to use real name(which he has sometimes, so I dunno) + hes banned from some of them. 😄

    Yeah, I must admit that part of the idea is to let everyone get a bit of a taste for team racing in our own 'bubble'. 😅

     

    I think enduros need a big grid thats fairly close in pace or you end up just halving car numbers from like 16 to 8. However there are many one off events that should be good for newcomers in the near future. 😉

    ACC hotfix 1.8.16 is out.

     

    Changelog v1.8.16

    • COTA: added barrier in runoff to avoid wrong direction trigger.
    • Indianapolis: podium graphics updated.
    • Indianapolis: fixed ghosting occasionally disabling in pitlane due to erroneous surface type.
    • Fixed camber values and limits in presets for a number of cars in American DLC track groups.

     

    + as a hidden tweak Porsche BoP changed on at least one of the new tracks so that its not a full second faster than all other cars. I hope they'd pay some attention to Audi too, currently LFM pro signups is 50 % Audi because its so fast.

  5. Watkins = Spa' 2nd sector + Kemmel and Raidillon the track. All corners are long and long radius, no slow or sharp corners at all. Very fast, very fun. Turns 2 and 3 have potential to create the largest lap 1 pileups.

     

    Indy = Snetterton meets Silverstone. Very bumpy with awkward corners without clear apexes. Final 3 corners are smooth fast like in Silverstone and the main straight is long.

     

    COTA I find most annoying of the three. Its long and technical, copy-paste of others tracks' features and corners put together with many blind corners and seems to be technical for the sake of being technical, not to produce good racing. Being long and wide its probably still a decent big grid track.

    @Erik are you gonna give the Lexus a runout on its home turf, or are you too thoroughly fed up of driving it now?

     

    Nah, I was watching Foch struggle with it around Suzuka having exactly the same problems and I just cant be bothered to work hours and hours on my driving and car setup. I think I'll go do some kayaking instead, 36 degrees in shade so its about time to stop hiding indoors. Besides I dont think I can get closer than 9 seconds of my personal lap record. 😉

  7. For anyone interested in endurance racing. Next RCI season will be the EWC2 with 6 races starting in September. I think we will likely again enter 2 or maybe even 3 cars with 3-4 drivers each. There will again be pre-qualifying to set splits and we may again try to get all teams in the same split. PM me for invitation. In rllmuk we currently have me, Meers and Eurovapesim2 driving!

    I've been thinking of getting a new rim too.  I've been periodically checking eBay and Facebook (ick) and so far the only conclusions I've made are:

    a) rims don't seem to go for cheap very often, and

    b) the used alcantara ones always look horrible - like someone has attacked it with a sander and then a heat gun.

     

    I'm thinking of the Open Wheel rim (this one) for our GT3 etc races, but I do like the look of the Sparco P310 too.  The plasticky feel to the standard rim is the worst thing about the T300 I think.  That and the annoying screwholes on the back where your fingers rest.  Oh and the d-pad on mine is starting to miss the odd click here and there...

     

    Bigger radius will mean slightly lighter steering and slightly less intense feedback, I would think?  Hoping it would be countered by the larger size just being more like the real thing.

     

    You could get a proper shifter too and start using that 3rd pedal? :)

     

    Hey, I have the T300 open wheel rim. I think its better than round. Buttons are in easier to reach places close to thumbs and paired so I have +/- buttons for brake bias, ABS and TC. Its a bit lighter than round wheel but beware that while its stiff its not rock solid and the alcantara wears quickly. Or at least the surface does and what remains is a surface that feels similar to the open wheel but is softer.

    I Totally understand the fov situation, no problem! and I'm not trying to make a big deal here although It's exactly like you said "There also isnt space on track for a car on your right." and you're not far enough along side to justify a cars width, let alone trying to force it at this point. The track veers right, If I keep my foot planted I understeer on to the sausage kerb on the left, If we both slightly lift we both get through, everybody behind gets through then you can line up an overtake.

    A couple laps after this I was side by side with a Bentley I think, he slightly lifted and so did I and we both made it through clean, I conceded the next corner because he had the inside line and I didn't want to go too wide before the straight or fight too much so the guy behind catches up and we kept it moving and I plotted my attack for further down the track.

    Serious competitions and public servers I get it, I would have moved over and closed the door straight away regardless but league racing should have a little more discretion, I want the guy in front and behind me to stay on the track and I try to facilitate that as best I can because that's what I enjoy, fast lap times don't really interest me in this hobby, just racing!

     

    Yeah its not big deal to my results or anything dont worry, I ruined my race again later anyway with a horrible pit stop and then locking rears when I lost focus and started to revert back to how other cars are driven. But do we have established rules on this? Because If you cut across when theres still overlap you will pit maneuver yourself. Even if you are ahead and thus "justified" to the line. Its even worse if you lift. I couldnt know you cant stay flat there or that you were about to move right.

     

    Later I had T1 contact with a mclaren but that was my bad, he was slow and to me it looked like he was going wide or opening door to me but he was just a bit slow and taking very wide entry.

     

    Personally I dont like F1 style rules where even when overlapping car that is ahead gets to take whatever line he wants to because I think that promotes squeezing and pushing off track.

    I had cleared you and was on the racing line but you didn't even lift, just kept accelerating even changing up a gear and drove straight into me.

    I'm fully aware of getting too much kerb there on the inside or outside will bounce you across the track into your opponent like what happened behind, I couldn't go anymore left so I made sure I didn't squeeze you on corner entry to force you on the kerb, I was approaching it with a little caution just trying to get us both through unscathed.

    I also feel there is a sense of responsibility on the guys at the front of the grid to get through the first corners/lap in a sensible manor because all the cars following end up being the casualties of something reckless and unnecessarily ruining peoples races.

    Sorry, but this is not clear and I dont know why you lift there. There also isnt space on track for a car on your right.

    As I said above it would have helped massively if I could have seen you better but Lexus and my screen and fov are what they are. I need to use bonnet cam or stop driving this car.

    gah, my replay didn't save somehow. If anyone's got a decent angle of the last lap I would quite like to review that and see if I could've done better - the highlight unfortunately starts about 2 seconds after it's all over and we're heading down to the finish.

     

    @Valver @SneakyNinja how are you guys feeling today, any better yet?

     

    It was a divebomb, he doesnt make the apex and managed to turn the car when hes already drifted across the track.

    My lap 1 T3 collision happened because the lambo beside me lifted and moved across before he had cleared me. I was on kerbing myself and thus couldnt turn more and thanks to the stupid A-pillar I didnt really even see him.
