Re: FGT Championship Series - Monza ( Feb 20th )

This is getting weird ! That is what happened to me with Juan . Exactly what happened.
I am at a job right now and will be home in about an hour and a half. Wonder what I will see ? At the start , did any of you notice how my car was behaving ?

wyld, i'm sorry for bumping you off into the sand. I wasn't sure if you gave me the full inside lane or not but i did not mean to hit you. I was just too focused on nolimits bumber.


It's all Good Juan. I'm sure it was accidental..

I actually didn't know who it was that hit me, but I know we both flew off the track. me into the sand, and you off  the inside of the corner.

 

Racing is racing, and we all do our best.

So no worries..

 

I blew the race by making Three pit stops.  Don't ask me how I did it, but for some reason I was practicing Suzuka. 

And that track ate up tires, so I planned on 3 stops, 8, 16, and 24..  with Fuel of 25, 25, and 40

 

Suzuka is 3.6 miles long so I had  my fuel calculated for 31 laps, or 90 liters extra..

Well Monza is also 3.6 miles, so I just kept the same pit strategy..  Since I had no practice, I didn't realize that Tires would last to 15 or 16 laps, and could have done it in 1 pit, maybe 2.

 

But I made 3 stops.. Dang nab it..

Good race, with these cars it seams the race is won on the first few laps. As my race strategy has been the same all 3 races so far, get away from the draft asap. The next race, De La Sarthe 09 with chicanes ...(Wyld), I may have to chuck that strategy out the window.

Props to jaun and gojet on there podiums.

 

@f1 My replay shows you going off on the final corner and then you going a whopping 37 mph to the pit lane. That just dosen't seam right. Are you saying that you didn't go off there? Either way great recovery.

 

Again Wyld De La Sarthe 09 with chicanes

Ferrari F1 Season 2 Champ-6 wins 9 podiums
Exotics Season 2 Champ-5 wins 13 podiums
FGT Season 1 Champ 5 wins 5 podiums
Acura NSX '91 season 1 Got my A$$ handed to me 1 win
Megane Trophy Season 1 Champ 9 wins 9 podiums

Watching the replay now to record laps lead and all that. Will get the prizes sent out later today and update the thread as well.

 

Not sure if I'm hearing things but Gojet's car sounds different than the rest of them. It has a deeper whine to it, I noticed this at Spa too. Weird, does anyone else hear it? It's got to be my replays I'm thinking.

I just ran two test races. One with the Yellow F1 and one with the Blue F1.

 

The Yellow one has a Deeper Note to it.

Especially if you Short Shift.

 

So Yes, GJ's car has a different sound.

Re: FGT Championship Series - Sarthe ( Feb 27th )

Feb 24, 2013

I don't think the different colors of the car have different sounds. My car sounds different because I am short shifting. Here's why:

 

Because of the power limiter, we have 503 horsepower from about 12,000 RPM and up. However, the car has more torque at the lower RPM. Meaning, by shifting sooner, I have the same amount of power, but more torque.

Gojet-64 is now Encvell. (Gojet-64 is now only used for older games and Vita)

Re: FGT Championship Series - Sarthe ( Feb 27th )

Feb 25, 2013

Now that you mention I did notice you were short shifting so the different engine sound makes sense now.

 

Standings have been updated, meant to do it this weekend but got distracted on Saturday and had a bad migraine all day yesterday.

 

Anyone watch the 500? Boring lol. Freakin Kyle Busch causes a wreck ( or got Kahne loose ) and takes out Stewart  Smiley Mad

 

Anyways, 13 laps at Sarthe on Wednesday. I'll try to get online tomorrow after work and get some laps in so feel free to go in my lounge if you want to practice. Peace
