  1. Nothing I think I have so far only driven sprint races with no stop or mandatory tyre swap.
  2. What are the pit stop rules in the next race? Is it just min. 1 liter of refuel to make it count or mandatory tyre swap?
  3. I rest left leg by straightening it on the straights. I think whats stressing the most isnt pressing the brake pedal, but lifting and holding the leg over the pedal before braking and when trail braking. Tracks with short straights and long corners where I need to trail brake most are the worst. Unfortunately it looks like I will miss Spa race on July 8th. But I should be able to make it to remaining GT4 races and the final in Monza.
  4. How are you all holding the wheel? It shouldnt be held too tight and not be too far or arms need to be held up constantly. Ive noticed that many sit very close to the wheel like NASCAR drivers... Less arm strain in long races probably. Heres Lando in his rig, notice how close his elbows are. Im super skinny with no arm strength but I have canoed and kayaked for 15+ years. Arm and hand fatigue has never been a problem, its always the left knee that I start to feel if I drive too long and forget to rest it on straights.

  6. 991 GT3 R is the one that wants its driver dead. 718 Cayman GT4 is much easier and usually doesnt oversteer. 991.2 GT3 R is somewhere in between the two in that regard
  7. It could be because some of the GT4s are pretty difficult or unique to drive. KTM, Alpine, Audi, Ginetta and especially the Maserati. That leaves only 6 others.
  8. Its allright. I have killed about third of the grid including some of the fastest competition in a race start so I'm not allowed to complain about others bonking me a bit this year. I couldnt afford to make a mistake there and I had to adjust TC and BB almost corner to corner, very exhausting. Arena section was especially difficult for me, I couldnt get the car turned and 3rd gear was too high, but if I shifted down to 2nd to get it turned it'd kick out the rear and engine brake would make it even slower. I was chasing setup all week and last minute guesswork changes and probably pre-race adjustments for wet conditions just made it worse. Lesson learned, I need to test the car in rain too and stick to what works. I was slowish in race 2 too but with the cars behind me fighting for position it was enough. Cant wait for rainy Zandvoort, with even more long corners! I see for Kyalami we have 9 participants in 8 7 different cars. Nice to see this kind of car diversity.
  9. For me and probably most of us simracing is a hobby. Practicing, learning a new track, developing setup, finding consistency, racing and many other things are all parts of it and I enjoy them. I feel if I used a coaching service now that I have learned the basics I would miss the part where I find out where and how to improve myself... even if I got faster and better, there would be slightly less hobby to enjoy. Probably. And I would have to pay for it. Some of the most efficient practicing I've had has been driving the same car together with someone who is at the same level. We can compare where we drive the track differently and might see each others' mistakes, we can compare how the car feels and then what effects setup changes have.
  10. Theres an error in series scoring on simracing.gp - P6 gets 7 instead of 9 points.
  11. Tex really made me sweat in the first race. BMW's traction out of corners saved me at least half a dozen times. I didnt realize my car was quite that bad in the wet. Horrible, horrible in turns and under brakes. I had made some last minute setup changes that quite clearly didnt work and I guessed tyre pressures wrong. You nearly got me in the arena and when we encountered lapped cars. Shame about the connection issues in race 2.
  12. Heres my setup. Flight pedals against the wall stop the thrustmasters from sliding
  13. IMHO it doesnt help if its too narrow. I see that your fov is 46 degrees. Thats plenty so it can work. If I used "correct" FoV I wouldnt be able to drive close to other cars at all and forget about trackside brake markers. I have a 24" 16:9 screen 85 cm away from eyes and I cant get it any closer as the base of the screen is already touching the wheelbase and I sit close to the wheel. My 50" TV screen just about fits on the desk, but if I use it there'd be very little space left and I dont know if its low latency or no.
  14. You'll get there. Grid has lots of talent and I suspect I'm - for the time being - ahead only thanks to all the time spent turning practice laps. I hope I can learn something from driving the BMW because its so different to Porsche and other cars I've driven before in ACC.
  15. I dont like the BMW. I just somehow ended up driving it. On this track I have trouble making it enter turns at all and I have to move brake bias 4 % more forward than what people use on youtube hotlaps or I lock the rears and around it goes. Understeers, slides and locks up rears, its a dog. I suspect my quali times are at least a second off aliens.
  16. I used to use the "correct" FoV but it restricts too much what I can see. For hairpins and battling with other cars I need to see more, so I went back from 43 degrees to 56. Its still very restrictive but better to have some fisheye effect than be blind... Many like look with turn, but as personal preference I have it turned off and have locked the camera. I can see small movements of the car better and that helps me to catch spins and drifts. Like with wheels, sitting position and FFB, many of these camera settings can be very personal and I think its more important to not constantly change them than it is to chase best FoV or any other setting. edit: actually looks like I should use 20 degrees in ACC. I would see the sky and road 100 m ahead
  17. @daifuco set steering lock to 900 in game and it should automatically change the lock from car to car to match. Make sure its maxed in the Thrustmaster software. I use cockpit view but I have disabled steering look and camera shake, and I usually move the camera a bit so that the in-game steering wheel is more behind physical wheel.
  18. So many Astons and Porsches! Guys, I heard the light cars Alpine, KTM and Ginetta are great in the wet
  19. Btw we are still looking for Porsche Cup, Super Trofeo and GT4 drivers for the RCI 10 hour Silverstone race on July 31. I will likely drive GT4 but I dont rule out GT3, ST or Porche Cup. Right now we have 6 people, but chances are that 1 or 2 cant make it. If we can have 3 or even 4 drivers in a car its okay if one drives just one stint.
  20. Could we consider extending qualifying time a bit for this track? Because if outlap and first lap are say 2 min 15 s, I fear only couple of cars can get 2 fast laps in and time will run out for others. Especially if it rains and the outlap, including loading setup and driving the pitlane, becomes like 2 min 40 and fast laps 2 min 20-25.

    If we dont have player numbers or time to do proper races in AC, we could also do things like hotlap challenges around Nordschleife or something in various cars, or virtual car meets or something.
  22. I usually like driving in rain in ACC but I'm not very experienced in that. If the car is setup well and doesnt want to kill you, you need to brake a bit earlier than in dry and be careful when touching kerbs. Never brake on kerbs or paint. Lower all cambers by say half a degree, increase traction control if needed, and try to keep wet tyres between 29.5 and 30.5 PSI. If it starts to rain mid-race drive on the dirty parts to collect marbles until its fully wet and rubber has been washed away.
  23. Ill be on discord tonight if someone wants to practice together.
  24. I have no idea how to drive Club or Brooklands-Luffield combination either. I can lose or win 3 tenths in them and have no idea what I did differently
  25. All ACC DLCs are on sale right now. Get them if you still dont have them all!
