Found it, but I'll wait until after the weekend to fix it as per your request, Gaz.

 

Nice one, thank you.

 

/me takes lots of screenshots as that won't be happening again!

Still got 13 days and 98 free slots when I look? Maybe you're on the naughty list? 

 

Yeah, @mrben09 my post about hurrying to register was a joke.  105 car pit box at Suzuka! :D

 

EDIT: Unless you're also joking?!  :D  It's friday afternoon... please don't hurt my brain!

I'm terribly sorry, but that's me out. My computer can't handle 105 cars.

 

Why was I not informed of this?

By the time our community is big enough to attract 105 drivers you might have built your new PC ;)

I didnt get to sleep more than 5 h, today 42 km of cycling and 4 hours of kayaking with our company and Im ready to sleep till Monday 😁

 

One final thing about tyres. If youve driven bit longer you may have noticed that tyres sometimes get grained, especially in low temperatures. Graining/tearing plays a significant part and is often more important than wear or even pressures. Its created by sliding and locking tyres. A tyre that has 1,5 mm left can still give one good laptimes if its not grained, but a heavily grained tyre will not. Some time ago we drove a Monza enduro with limited sets of tyres and we were forced to double stint tyres. Lot of effort was put to setup and driving to maintain tyre life, and well over 70 laps in for the set of tyres I had I still managed to clock some 1:48s and I was less than half a second slower than I was with fresh tyres.

 

Tyres we have in this sim for gt3 - especially 2020 tyres - and gt4 are very durable, but dont underestimate how important it is in long races to keep them good and in right temperature and pressure window.

As noob I though that the Aston Martin would suit me better but I got my best lap 1:53 😅 with the Porsche at the second or third try. Not sure whether to stick with the AM or going Porsche.

 

 

I'm not sure whst cars to try first. If any of you could describe the main cars with one liners that would be great.

VR people, just found a way to squeeze a little bit more performance out of ACC, by turning off mirroring (monitoring on your flatscreen). 

 

documents>Assetto Corsa Competizione>Config

 

Open vrsettings.json
Change "spectator screen mode: 5" to "0" 

 

Used the Tray Tool performance HUD to measure change and got at least 5% extra performance headroom and my eyes also found it more stable, less stuttery. Could be significant to overall stability. Every frame counts for me!

I have an ever better hack than that, wear your glasses.

 

I don’t normally need my glasses as I have a very weak prescription, but it must be something to do with the headset being so close and staring at it for so long.

 

Best resolution increase yet 😋

Just been on the practice server to try Zandvoort. What is the opinion of this track from others because I am not liking it. Might be the Aston but feels like I am dragging the car around a cart track surrounded by boring brown grass.

 

Not a fan 🙄

In my opinion for GT3 its the worst track to race on together with Oulton Park and Zolder. No places to overtake, narrow and only 2 interesting corners. How good it is for GT4 we will see soon 🙃

I really like it, but this is coming from a guy who finds Monza uninspiring and unsatisfying to drive so... 😬 I like twisty/flowy/roller-coaster style tracks, long straights give me too much time to over think stuff

And these are two of my favourite tracks to drive 😂

@SANtoOos dont get me wrong I like to drive many of these Mickey Mouse tracks, just not race them. Flashbacks of 40-car qualifying where I didnt get to drive a single uninterrupted lap and then getting stuck behind a train of slow cars for 60 minutes :D

Ooooff yeah can see how annoying that would be! Bring on Monza  😆

Okay I turned some practice laps and as expected the BMW is a steaming pile of you know what around this track 😁 I guess it needs straights after slow corners to stretch its legs and really, really hates all these many long fast corners. Chronically understeery, couldnt fix that with setup changes yet, and as cherry on top most corners are between gears.

It's sandy dunes!

 

It's not my favourite circuit either (I don't mind it really), but I chose it because we rarely pick it. It was either this or Paul Ricard (same reason). The only tracks I dislike are tightly walled-in street circuits like Monaco, Singapore, Pau, Baku, Long Beach et al.

It was incredible (and also incredibly dangerous) in the 60s/70s, but the modern circuit isn't a patch on the original flowing track.  I still quite like it though, it's just not a very favourable comparison, but then which circuits have actually been improved by bringing them up to modern standards?  I can't think of any tbh!

It’s certainly better than Paul Ricard but that’s not much of a benchmark. 😜

Monza. Massive safety improvements and more passing opportunities. I'd like to say Spa as well with the reworked bus stop , but now the lack of gravel in Les Combes is more forgiving and sometimes allows for defending cars to maintain position even if they brake too late and go wide.

I hated PR until we raced on it last year, it's actually really fun to drive and it's a great racing circuit.  Looks horrendous on telly, but you don't really see it when you're driving!

Yep, Monza is a good shout.  Maybe Silverstone too as the 60s layout was a bit boring, I don't really like the newest revision so much though.

That's how I feel about it as well. I think it flows really well, but it's a bit featureless.

Hockenheim maybe as well?

Important Notice!

Due to me having to add you all to the closed events myself, can you all check that I've allocated the correct car prior to Thursday?  Despite there being an option to add drivers from a previous event, it seemed to carry over the incorrect car for some of you; so I had to manually change it.  So please check that it's correct and change it if not (you can change car yourself).   We don't want to be in a position where the event starts and you have to race with the incorrect car!

Actually, I've been able to do a comparison from the last GT4 race and it all seems to match up.  So I think we're good.

 

Only peeps that may want to change are: @daifuco ... you were in the Ginetta last time out but I can see that you've been trying out a few cars in practice so far so be sure to change it if you want (can have 1 change per season; but I know you're feeling your way with the game at the moment so I don't think it matters too much).

 

@DjScream3 I put you in the Alpine so be sure to change if you want to.
