  1. Heres a 1:43.3 lap. Theres still 2-3 tenths to gain early in the lap and 1-2 tenths in the slow chicane. I hope it helps someone find the racing line and where to brake and turn. Hot track makes things difficult, so slidey. https://streamable.com/zul5fb
  2. @davejm server conditions dont seem to be static. First time when I joined it was 6 o clock or so and 28/28 degrees, and the second time it started where it should have at 2 pm, but there was slight change in track temperature over 2 hours.
  3. The RCI multiclass enduro tracks left are Misano, Bathurst and Monza. I was asking Dave if he was interested in case more drivers are needed. Besides those, theres also gt3 only 4 h Hungaroring on Nov 20, and after multiclass races starts a new slighly more serious 6-race enduro world tour which will have 12 and 24 h races. We will be there of course. There are of course also many other communities that arrange quality stewarded endurances, but 1 or 2 big races per month is what most seem to prefer over busier schedule.
  4. An idea from the Circuit Superstars thread. Could we have AC or ACC hotlap server, with car(s) and/or tracks changing every couple of weeks? I wonder if something like that would be interesting and have lower entry bar or be otherwise more accessible than these weekly races.
  5. I dont think they do really, except maybe for T1 and maybe the last bit of the very long right hander in Paul Ricard. On British tracks you need to have 2 tyres fully inside white lines. Everywhere else if you touch the black stuff inside white lines its valid, and sometimes you can go wider or cut more and be fully off the track(I'm thinking about Spa mostly) and the actual limit may be a cone or a kerb or another line that cant be touched. If you want practice company, ping me on discord next time you drive Misano or whatever we have coming up here. Even if I'm offline.
  6. Yeah, you just throw the car into the first chicane and hope it sticks. Every lap its slightly different but somehow it works. Something that also works is touching only the first or the second kerb, and using some throttle when touching them to stabilize the car a bit. I used same setup as in Oulton Park, so my car was very soft and raised, though I feel I should have raised it by couple of mm more or used stiffer front wheelrates because it still bottomed out a lot on those red anti-cut kerbs as you could see in the video in my previous post. I was 8-9 tenths off the pace I know I can do in Bentley but game performance was pretty good, I only had a handful of freezes. Did anyone else have trouble seeing braking and turn in points in the dark? First laps in race 1 were the worst
  7. Dont crash in the chicane, dont crash in the chicane, dont crash in the chicane https://streamable.com/vwhu0l
  8. Brake ducts and pads have by far the greatest effect. Then toe and camber. Everything else very minor. Sometimes you just cant get them within optimal temperature range.
  9. Is it properly grounded? The DD. Remember its not just for safety but also to make sure its in the same potential with everything else
  10. Yeah tbh I get tons of stuttering and screen freezes in Zolder so running no practice may be the least frustrating way to do a Zolder race week
  11. Right, does that mean we get 2 weeks of qualifying for Imola? Ill have to practice for Imola and Misano at the same time
  12. Is the Zolder race this week? I though it'd be next week. I should be able to race but I likely wont be able to turn a single practice lap
  13. I watched most of the race on Yannik's stream until signal strength finally got too bad and it was stuck in buffering. I tried VR for the first time today, in Il-2. I think I may need to get a VR set and see if I can make ACC run smoothly.
  14. Last weekend I followed a enduro race where Tortellini was lapping 2:17s in Spa, in the Porsche. In traffic, with full fuel and 10 kg of ballast. He barely turns the wheel in most corners. His stint starting here:
  15. Yeah they are quite different. In the preset front is very damped, sits on bumpstops and doesnt pitch or roll much at all. For me that results in very understeery feel and sliding front tyres a lot. I find the car also does not like touching kerbs. Increasing bumpstop range and reducing damping improves all that. I found that to compensate for front changes rear also needs some changes to stop low speed entry oversteer. Front wheelrate doesnt necessarily need to be softer though, my mistake there. Its not necessarily any faster than the preset, just different. For me car becomes more predictable and stable with more grip, but responds slower. Can anyone stream tonight's race?
  16. Good, but I know mid 1:45s are possible with full fuel so everyone should be able to improve quite a bit
  17. McLarens are clearly struggling a bit again. Try something like this, makes the car softer and less snappy: Aggressive preset+ -wheelrates 1 click down -some clicks more bumpstop range(experiment, difference is how it reacts under brakes and high/medium speed turns) -lower rear ARB and diff. preload -front 54 mm, rear 68-70 mm, max wing. If its still snappy or bad over kerbs raise front or lower rear more, 1 mm at a time, dont bother trying lower wheelrate or damping -dampers front 10-12-11-12, rear 19-16-23-16
  18. This is on the weekend before our Misano enduro weekend. I'll think about it. I wont make it to the qualifying race though.
  19. Those Ferraris were fast on the back straight. Over 285? edit: heres the 1:54.0 race lap of mine. As you can see its not even particularly clean or smooth and later I could improve up to over 3 tenths in sector 1. Its just so important to carry speed through the long corners and get back on power as early as possible in final corner and the hairpin. https://streamable.com/ws13je
  20. Steyr Mannlicher Match 91. Its quite old, from 1993. Its from the time before PCP was a thing. It looks similar to the one below: I turned a dozen laps around Snetterton and the best one was 1:49.152. I'm not sure if I like or hate this track but I'm sure that time will get beaten.
  21. The noise doesnt bother my neighbor. We have a mutual understandment pact. She knows that I know that she smokes weed.
  22. See the youtube link in my message above. Besides the occasional movie and football world and euro championships I havent really watched TV for years... I mostly play or read. F1 and enduro races I watch on my PC. I recently built an air rifle "range" in my apartment. The lane goes across my bedroom and living room. Offhand shooting at the 5 mm / 0,2" bullseye takes a lot of concentration and focus on many small details and trying to minimize heartrate and muscle vibration. I find it great way to relax and clear thoughts after work and dinner, before racing.
  23. Racing related? Rush and Talladega Nights of course https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1Nh_3JCFj8
  24. Thanks, lets do some practice together soon. Poke me on discord or something, or here. About year and a half ago I was in a phase where I felt I couldnt get any faster. Trying to replicate alien streamer laps, watching drivers faster than me drive in game, nothing worked. They didnt seem to do anything differently yet were seconds faster. I was stuck at laptimes like 2:22 in Spa and 1:50 in Monza. Couldnt see what others were doing differently and I thought it was about being inhumanly precise and brave, catching car at limit of grip every corner. Possibly controllers. If that sounds familiar, be adviced that no you do not need to be alien precise or robot consistent to improve a second or two, rather work on fundamentals: slow in, fast out, use all of the track, have smooth inputs. Approach the limit from below, not above. What I think really helped me was racing with people who were equally fast and a bit faster. For this race it helped me a lot that I had been here before, so I knew exactly what kind of laptimes myself and drivers as fast as or a bit faster than me could do. I reached them almost immediately and after raising the car a little it felt very safe and consistent, so I didnt feel pressure to shave away those final tenths. Snetterton is completely new track to me so its unfortunate I cant race. I'll try to turn some laps in practice still!
  25. Two uneventful races for me, but I'm happy with how good my car was and laptimes were excellent considering I hadnt practiced more than an hour. My fastest lap in race 2 was 1:54.0 and I nearly turned 1:53 multiple times just to make a mistake in the final corner. I cant thank enough all the sponsors, Aston Martin, Thrustmaster, Logitech, nVidia, Laphroaig, wouldnt be here wihout you. It looked very, very close from P2 to P8 in both races! Looks like I will miss the next race in Snetterton. But if someone wants to stream it I should be able to watch it.
