  1. Can confirm. The only online race I've done with the new tracks was Watkins yesterday afternoon, and it looked similar going up the hill on lap one
  2. Good to know, I think I'm getting better with names and forum nicknames Thanks man! Watching it back, it certainly looks rather optimistic - good thing it didn't end in calamity
  3. I'm glad to read that, thanks man It looked pretty bad in the highlight video, but was just plain weird from my POV - looked like your car slowed down right I got back on the throttle, but the game didn't even register a collision on my end (no warning, etc): https://clips.twitch.tv/HeartlessRefinedAdminPJSalt-3btALQ5UeE0UbcHE Anyway, the race itself was awesome. Thought I'd thrown it away right at the start by choosing slicks, which did not work at all resulting in a lap 3 stop for wets and enough fuel to last until the end. Got faster and more comfortable after that, especially on a drying track, but I was hoping for more rain so I wouldn't have to come in a second time for slicks - which then fell just in time @davejmand I had a bit of a hairy moment when there was a slight tap at Spoon, which luckily didn't lead to disaster. Entering the main straight to start the last lap, I had a good exit from the chicane to get next to Gary and Daniel (sorry, don't know their names on here) and almost got pushed into the pit entry, but the move stuck and got me up into second. Really happy with that after the race went the way it did, hard work but a ton of fun Congrats to @Meers for the win (great move to take the lead, too!) and to @Erik for the championship win! I am glad I could come back to race with you guys again, just a great group of guys to spend your Thursday nights with driving pretend race cars
  4. Thanks! I'm sure I could go on in two weeks after spending more time in-game, but a new sim or game always throws a lot at you. As for the style, I think it would be possible to fit both worlds under one umbrella. They're almost there as is, as they got a ton of adjustability and driving aids. Maybe they'll improve the physics in the future, although without any assists, it's pretty hard already right now
  5. Interesting It feels good after a few acclimatization laps, but never quite "right", you know? Like at other tracks where you can just focus on pushing the car to its limit without thinking about not binning it because you'll start sliding with one wrong input.
  6. Re: F1 22 - I got to play the game early (i.e. in the last WIP version before release) and put together a review. In case anyone needs a bit of an overview, you can find it here. On the ACC side of things, I managed to get some practice in on Tuesday. Suzuka always seems to be one of those low-grip circuits that should be tons of fun, but somehow isn't, at least not in a GT3 car. While my time wasn't that bad, I hope I can keep it together for 60 mins and see what happens
  7. Already got Vietnam flashbacks of the 12h rain race I did there last summer - in the Audi, too Last night was good, although too inconsistent. I managed to sprinkle in a few errors here and there, which I'm not too happy with, but all things considered, P5 is not a bad finish at all. Had to play catch-up right from the start - not blaming anyone as there was nothing they could do as I was trying to avoid an accident right in front of me. That netted me nine seconds of repairs, which I didn't take as the car felt okay and I don't think I would've gotten the time back on the track. Still hoping for an incident-free race at Suzuka though
  8. Feel better soon, both of you! In case anyone wants to watch what we're doing tonight, I'm gonna stream my POV again on Twitch.
  9. Damn. Hope you'll get through it without feeling sick and be on the grid if you feel well enough!
  10. I've been thinking about dusting off the trusty old GTR at some point again. Had many great league races in the turbo brick. Bonus points for the awesome noise
  11. Wow, this should be a good one. Love the track, so I'm excited for tomorrow already Gotta make sure to avoid that killer curb on the inside of the penultimate turn. It feels a bit like some sort of trap on a Mario Kart circuit
  12. Bit of conflicting advice, haha If in doubt, better listen to @Erik just to be sure
  13. That's what I found when my teammate and I were driving the thing more often. It is decent on turn-in, but can be much better with a bit more rake.
  14. Good news: The load cell arrived today and I just finished a test run on the practice server. No issues to report, so Thursday is a go from my side
