  1. Ive been racing this game for 2+ years now and I still have no clue about setups. I pick Default aggressive, do a few laps to get the tyres to their temp, then pit and tweak the pressures to get them as close to optimal as you can. Do a few more laps to confirm they're in the window posted earlier Theres a good laymans guide here: https://www.acc-wiki.info/wiki/Setup_Guide_for_Beginners
  2. I just hopped on for a quick blast - have had a couple of glasses of wine this evening and yet put in a half decent time! I was 0.51 secs up on my last lap and the session came to an end about 2 seconds before I crossed the line... not sure if it counted or not? edit: looks like it did, according to rllmuk-racing's timing page. Smashed that last sector! Wasn't on discord, so couldn't be social, sorry. Also, the VR magic hat means I dont type in the chat much/ever. But @milko - yeah I saw you leave as soon as I joined. I've got your number
  3. @mexos do you have the DLC tracks yet? If you do, Id vote for some more time at Watkins Glen If not, Misano maybe?
  4. Err, it already is? Well the 10 hour trial is available if you are a GamePass subscriber
  5. @davejm - can you put a practice server online and link it to the rllmuk racing website? I'm keen to do some laps (on pretty much any combo... not too fussy) and the visibility of my times gives me an extra impetus to push a bit harder, or some, back again and have another go.
  6. I've driven a bit more today (day off!) and I'm not sure the McLaren is the right car... Ive now found that if I trust the downforce, I can take almost all the corners flat out - which isn't quite so much fun. Maybe the Formula Vintage Gen 2 is the right class after all? Also, theres a nice period correct F1 livery pack for those cars we could use: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/ams2-f1-1969-season.54050/
  7. Spent a bit of time in the sim-rig this evening trying out 1970s Spa. It's got that "Fat Alfie AC mod track" vibe. Lots of great old school textures - especially the advertising hoardings. Grass, posts, fences and trees everywhere. Lovely touches of the Belgian countryside - houses and parked up period-correct cars. It's gorgeous. To drive it is very different to modern Spa. Wide open corners taken flat out in lots of places. Radillon/Eau Rouge is totally different. I mean, its the same set of corners and hill, but you have to break for a much sharper initial left, then head up the hill right, and left - but avoiding a barrier now on the left, and the grass on the exit on the right has no runoff. Almost zero room for error. In the 1970 Formula Vintage Gen 2 Brabham, it was fun - but theres very little front end turn-in and grip. So then I tried the later 70's Formula Retro Gen 3 McLaren MP4/1C. So much faster. Still flat out for large sections of the track - but much more exciting overall. Loved every minute of it! Brilliant fun.
  8. Yes please!!!
  9. Another big AMS2 update today - the official release of Spa 1970 and the new car mentioned last page, but now with some oval US tracks: Changelog here: https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1066890/view/3458229997612646707
  10. Anyone watch Top Gear this evening? https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m001fhy8/top-gear-series-33-episode-4 I was amused to see they took a few "off the street" people (with admittedly a bit of karting experience, or similar) and set them on a path to compete in some proper GT racing. As part of their story, they took a trip to the McLaren centre and met Lando who sat two of them down in their (cheap! Logitech!!) simulators. They fired up ACC to practice on. They all ran the McLaren 570S GT4 around Donington, and I was interested to see what their times were... Lando did a 1.38.520, and the two newbies did a 1.43 and 1.44 respectively. I just checked - my fastest time round Dony in a 570S is 1.38.6 I could have almost have kept up with Norris! And most of you boys would have kicked his butt! Very interesting, I thought...
  11. Very true! I just dug out this screengrab from when we practiced at Silverstone in July 2020. So in my case I've got from 2:08's to 2.00 in two years... And these are pre the 1.8 patch lap times when the cars were faster (the currently applied nerf added about 0.5 to 1.0sec in laptime). Clearly my increase in pace is due to all the expensive sim-hardware Ive bought since then. I must buy more
  12. Oh god no, when I drifted it I lost 2 seconds in that sector alone. Good excuse to repost this bad boy:
  13. I watched it thought the exact same thing. Highly trained assassins duelling it out, and not one head shot? Ridiculous. Its all body shots and then get in close for swords/knives and kung fu - because it looks cool.
  14. I thought it was a decent game - but I *really* enjoyed it with all the shinies turned on when I got an RTX card... looked phenomenal. Looking forward to another outing with even more effects!
