Re: DTM Racing Series (German Touring Car Championship) - Season 1

What kinda lap times are you guys running on Nurb GP/F?

 

I just jumped in the BMW for a bit and ran a 1:54.2 on softs. This car is ripping those tires apart around this track for me right now. Maybe after a little more tuning it will be better but it seems like I'll use Mediums or hards in the race. 

 

(EDIT)

Well i thought the CLK was way to much for the rest of the field but after running some laps in that car, i found that i was about .800 off of my fast time in the BMW. I'm more consistent in the Merc, but I'm sure i can get to that point in the Bmw. It seemed like the power of the Bimmer is what was giving it a chance. If i can get the bimmer's setup to be a little easier on the tires around GP/F, then i guess that will be the car to beat. Although, I have no clue what any of the other cars run here because i don't own any of them...

 

 

If two eyes are better than one, then I guess I’m S#!T outta luck!

Hey Tuna,

 

a 1:54 is a great time for GP/F.  I know we tested there three weeks ago and I think Wagg set the fastest time in the Merc CLK at 1:54:xxx.  I did a 13 lap practice last week and I was averaging 1:57's 1:58's on softs. 

 

On low downforce tracks the BMW and the Audi's are as fast or slightly faster than the CLK; however, on medium to high downforce tracks the CLK is unstoppable.

I hope you didn't make 13 laps on softs around that track.:smileysurprised: I could only manage a solid 7-8 laps on softs. But i guess i was pushing it on every lap.

pshew...(is that how you say it? pshew? LOL) :smileyvery-happy:

 

Yeah i think the bimmer is a little harder on the tires than others. It is carrying a little more weight.

ok everyone I haven't gotten too much feedback on the remaining few items so I have decided on the following.  Sorry if this upsets anyone.

 

  • 600PP limit will be used instead of HP/Weight

 

  •  We will race at Spa as originally planned. For those who don't have Spa or do not wish to purchase the DLC everyone will be allowed to drop their lowest result.  I will keep the overall standings on both page 1 of the forum and on my computer.  I will keep record of everyone's results for each track on my computer and show only the overall standings with the 1 drop on the forum.  There will be no drops for the Manufacturers Cup

 

  •  BMW M3 GTR Race Car is now officially approved

 

  •  Merc CLK will also be approved as originally planned.  I did not receive enough feedback to ban this car from the series.  If the CLK is the only car you have please by all means use it so that you can race with use; however if you have more opitions to select from I urge you to consider other cars.  Those that decide to race with the CLK will not be penalized or looked down upon.  Review of the CLK will be a season long process.  Please be aware that the CLK may be banned for season 2 if there is one.

*OP will be updated either tonight or tomorrow

Looks good to me wisc. I've been cycling the UCD trying to find another DTM car but I've had no such luck. I'm gonna Use the BMW for this season...I just wish it wasn't soo heavy but the weight might come in handy at some point I guess?? (Not likely)

Should be a fun one for sure. I have the BMW set up nicely right now. Hopefully i can pull off a nice drive. The car gets really loose on low fuel and/or medium tires. Plus i've been racing without ABS now and that adds another Huge challenge to the mix. I'll jump on again for a bit tomorrow (not sure what time) to make some final tweaks on my car. I'll post here if I get online.
