Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: S11 R2 - Mosport - 16/11/2017

My apologies for being so mostly absent on these forums lately. It's of course 100% my fault for not having things ready by race time, notably
Discord tonight. I did install it prior to race 2 but everything was dead silent unfortunately. Will get that sorted properly for next week.

It made me realise How much I don't like racing without hearing everyone else from time to time.
Race 1 was very good with a 5th place finish
Race 2 with all the mess of trying to get Discord working I forgot to load my setup and would have run out of fuel,
so pitted but as I hadn't set a pitstop config that was that.
I probably would have gotten a decent result.

Please accept my apologies Bruce for not posting in here sooner. Lately I have gotten used to just clicking on the Thursday fun night link only.

I'm very sorry to hear of Your ongoing health problems. I think I first raced with You here about 10 years ago for the 5th season of GT Legends, in the
B series if I remember correctly.
As many have said, You are indeed a true Gentleman and certainly a Legend here at XGN, as well as a few other places we raced at.
Thanks for the immense effort You have put in here over the years, managing racing seasons, and for being a great person to race alongside.
I sincerely hope You manage to pull through and get over this health hurdle.
You certainly sum up the saying "it's not winning that counts, but how You play the game" and I do remember You getting some wins as well.

Last of the late brakers

I really should look at the forums more often. Please put me down for the Pantera. I wouldn't want to steal someone
elses car if there aren't enough to select.

The lap times certainly tumbled from race 1 to race 2.
I purchased the Porsche 1 pack just before start time, and no issues at all with server or mod.

Race 2 my best for quite a while, with 2nd. Both myself and Daveo had some major offs but 4th was so far behind it didn't
cost us too much. Well done Rooshooter on the win, I got nearly close enough once or twice but in the end
the mistakes here and there evened it out.

Had a couple of attempts at downloading this track tonight which both failed. Before which they were predicting a 2.5 hour download. Couldn't find another source. Trying again now. See how it goes

I have changed track to  a kunos one,

Everyone just has to turn up :)

Only if You have the "Red" pack it appears. I don't so see You's next week. Have a good race tonight.

Looks like I missed a good nights racing, thanks to the Flu unfortunately.

Looking forward to it. I will make a bold prediction that there will be more overtaking than at the F1 on Sunday.

I just use an extremely cheap $1 headphone/mic set from msy, but only for speaking on, the audio comes from my Logitech speakers.

I had a Very good nights racing, and don't know whether the update had anything to do with it or not, but I found the Porsche very
nice to drive on this track. It was more than a match for the F40 at Brno. Picked up a 3rd in race 1 so very happy with that.

Race 2 was a bit of a mixed bag, I had made up a few places till I tagged a spinning Mael F40, that put me back a bit in the field, but
some carnage amongst some of the cars in front in the 2nd last lap got me up to 4th.

Overall a good nights racing.

1ST of all Apologies to all the other Porsches I ran into before the final turn lap 1, missed the brake marker.

I knew that pitting  would screw me over and it didn't disappoint with the pit menu flashing up on the screen for about 1/3 of a second before
vanishing  ???, and I tried a few times. Obviously I should have used the pit config app but forgot that it existed beforehand.

Aside from that I was enjoying the race quite a bit. I expect the porsche to be a lot more competitive on the tighter tracks, it seems to
have better brakes than the Ferrari and GT40.   

It looks like the Ferrari was also a bit difficult to keep on track as well as the porsche.
Fortunately none of my off track excursions involved anyone else.
If I can figure out how to stabilise the car as well as reducing understeer it will be real good.
Probably dreaming a bit too much though.

I haven't been keeping up to date with the dlc for Assetto Corsa, but am prepared to purchase whatever is required for Thursday nights.
With that in Mind can You please advise what dlc is required for this season.

EDIT.  I just had a look, and Porsche pack 3 is about it at the moment.

Hoping it all goes perfectly Bruce. Look forward to seeing You back asap.

It was certainly Bacchulum's racing that got me the win tonight, not mine.

It's really only the last few races I came to grips with this car, with it's bouncy suspension and seemingly constantly
spinning rear tyres. Interestingly I got better after replacing an AMD R9-270 with a GTX1070. a rather enormous leap
in graphics ability. and price too. Maybe I'll upgrade to that new AMD Ryzen cpu coming out early next year to replace ageing
I5-750 @4 ghz. Apparently it's going to give Intel a run for its money for once.

Thanks for the season. My goal for 2017 is to be more consistent, as that's one area I've gone backwards in this year.

So I just get the bonus of Imperious' score?
Awesome, let's go Imp. 8)

Just saw this. I better do some practise I think as I have a teammate. Looking forward to it.

I had planned (for once) to get here early last night and do some practise. Unfortunately I decided to remove my cpu cooler and replace the thermal compound first which took longer than expected.
I had hoped to put my new video card, a GTX1070 through its paces but this track wasn't going to do it justice looking a bit like something
from GPL.
No idea what I had done with last weeks setup so just dropped the suspension down before race 1. Made a minor adjustment for race 2 which was reduce the brake power to 90% and drop the front end one more notch.
Aside from the 1st few corners I don't think anyone passed me at all as I made my way up from 12th to 4th. I had some good scraps with Rooshooter and Humper and luckily avoided being caught up in all the entanglements in the 1st few laps.
My best result in ages so looking forward to next week.
