wagg,  I used Mclaren F1 last race at DFR,  Is it allowed to use different McLaren MP12C for  HSR?


 

The next race a McLaren can be used by you and I is race 5 Monza where we could use the MP4-12C if we wanted to, or we could wait til race 6 at  Rome to use the F1 '94 again. At high speed ring you could use a different Audi than the car you used in race 2 or you could use a Ford GT again, or ( lol ) a car you haven't used yet in the season.

I hope I can make thursday race again.

I got to run a few practice laps today.
Don't think I'm doing to well though.

Tried 3 differnt cars. Ford gt, Lambo, and F1

Best time I got was 1.04.5xx

1.05 consistant for 20 laps, but tires go away in 4 to 5 laps..

I don't think I could make a 6th lap on same tires.

 

I started by resetting the cars all back to defaults.

added 1.0 camber on rear

.5 on front

 

-5 front and rear height.

Didn't change anything else.

 

600pp and none of the cars got past 190 on the front straight.

Wyld, I will send you a copy of the Ford GT '06 that I'm going to use at HSR. In the preview race last week I was able to get a 1:01 lap time and maybe I got a 1:00 time with the draft. I have been reading around the forums lately and apparently the tire wear model was changed again recently. Idk I didn't notice anything different in the dtm race on Monday night. I can send you that Ford when I get home from work today.

i turned a 59.3xx with the Lexus LFA 2010.   but tires only last like 4 laps.  also turned a 59.7xx with the McLaren F1 1994 but again horrible tirewear 5 laps at most.  is ANYONE getting close to 9 or 10 laps?   or are we looking at a 7 stints of 7 laps as the target goal for the 49 laps.  i was hoping to get 5 stints of 10 laps each but i just do NOT see that happening.

is the Sypker legal in this series?  i know NOTHING about the car but tried it and it seems like an option if its legal

Its funny to look back on my online racing and see how i have evolved as a racer.  i used to HATE qualifying.  i had a REALLY hard time laying down on single fast lap in this game. but could get nice long runs and extended tire life...  now i've become a really good qualifier  and great at putting down single fast laps... but my tire conservation has gone down hill.

Ken, I'll check on the Spyker tomorrow morning when I have more time. I don't think it has been run in the first two seasons but I'll let you know tomorrow.

 

Wyld - I will try to send the Ford to you after the race tonight. If not then tomorrow morning it'll be there for you to try out. Peace

OK Wagg, I'll Look for it.
I tried the LFA tonight. my times are still 1:04's best lap was 1:03:xxx really close to a 1:04 though.
So It's got to be my driving skill and the tuning..

Anyway, I still enjoy getting on the track, and IF I happen to be the slowest one out there, I'll do my best to stay out of the leaders way..

But 5 seconds slower per lap, on a 1 minute course is a lot...
Maybe I should of left this thing packed away in the box...

Nah man. After such a long time away from this game it'll take some time to have the feel for driving again. I sent you the Ford this morning. If you practice with the car and want to change the top speed, only move the Final Gear because the Ford was tranny tricked.
