Mod Tracks / Targa Florio
« on: September 22, 2018, 06:27:01 PM »
For everyone who likes long tracks, here's a memory test. 8)
72 kms of more than 800 corners. :o
It's a very early alpha but the road itself is good, just no environment to speak of.
My PB is 44m35.2s in a Toyota GT86 (I've only done one lap (hotlap to make the first one count)). :-X


Assetto Corsa / AC Track Grip
« on: July 07, 2018, 02:20:55 PM »
Once upon a time, a Thursday I believe, there was a discussion between Wally, Seanus and myself about track grip.
I felt the racing line had more grip while Wally and Seanus assured me it was placebo, and the track grip was homogeneous.
To paraphrase, "AC's track grip is not that sophisticated".

I must be missing something or I'm very susceptible to placebo.
Drive the wet version of Goodwood (link below) and tell me the grip level is homogeneous.
That the slippery puddles are placebo. ???

I still believe that track grip can be variable and therefore a grippier racing line is possible. :-\

Fake Wet layout is included for wet track placebo, don't be surprised that it is so slippery, 1"50 is a fast laptime at Goodwood when it is wet. Use alternative lines to get more grip, optimum lines has less grip. Pretty much first time in simracing when you'll have to search for grip in circuit :)

Real Life Motorsport / 2018 Monaco GP Historique
« on: May 20, 2018, 09:52:50 AM »
I came across this whilst fishing, and thought I'd share it.
It's very appropriate for Tuesday, as the F1 era this year is 73-80. 8)
If you fish at the same pond I do you'll easily find it. ;)
If not, I'm uploading a zip now, but it's 6 hours of footage so that'll take a while.

I'll update when it's done.

Assetto Corsa / Online Controller Issues
« on: May 19, 2018, 09:33:51 AM »
I'm hoping someone can help me with my problem, as I'm clueless.

This morning, I have no gear shift in any car, but only online ???
Fanatec software registers gear shifts, as does Content Manager - Settings.
Everything works as normal offline. ???

Verified AC files through Steam and rebooted, but still no gears online.
Because it's only online, I have absolutely no clue where to go from here. :'(

Real Life Motorsport / Can-Am
« on: January 18, 2018, 06:16:59 PM »
I found an excellent doco covering the history of Can-Am.
Some of the extremes even surprised me (9+l V8 in a 690kg car, ON CROSS-PLIES!!!)
It even has insights from the great innovator himself, Jim Hall.

If you enjoy pre-regulation racing (well, almost), check it out. 8)

Real Life Motorsport / RIP Dan Gurney
« on: January 15, 2018, 02:34:21 PM »
 :'( :'(

All American Racers, his wife Evi and the Gurney family issued the following statement:

"With one last smile on his handsome face, Dan drove off into the unknown just before noon today, January 14, 2018. In deepest sorrow, with gratitude in our hearts for the love and joy you have given us during your time on this earth, we say 'Godspeed.'

"...Smell the sea and feel the sky,

Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic..."

Mod Cars / RaceSimStudio Formula Cars
« on: September 10, 2017, 10:32:22 AM »

But if you like Formula cars, they do a bloody good job.

I've got the F2, F4 and Formula79 and they're all excellent.
I haven't bothered with the Formula Hybrid as I feel I have enough modern F1 cars through various other mods and AC itself.
It's pay what you want but the minimum is 3.99 euro, or a little over $6.

This just about completes my full-house of formula cars, except the very rare Formula 5000.....

Racing general / Want a Porsche 917?
« on: February 05, 2017, 09:54:34 PM »

The very first Can-Am variant!
It goes up for auction later this month at RM Sotheby’s with an estimate of between £3.9-4.6 million. Bargain! 8)

Mod Cars / McLaren MP4/4
« on: January 30, 2017, 04:14:52 PM »
I've only done a handful of laps but nothing felt out of place and I was left with a big smile on me dial. ;D ;D
Had to be real careful until the tyres got up to pressure.


Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Aleph Null Ltd Expands
« on: January 10, 2017, 01:11:19 AM »
Due to increased investment from our major sponsor, Man Cave Print & Laser, Aleph Null Ltd has expanded to include a sister team.
This team will be named Continuum Racing and will be headed by long time Aleph Null driver, Chap.
He will be joined by new signing, Doobs.

Chap will be replaced in Aleph Null by MG who will race along side team founder, Bacchulum.

We are currently discussing livery options with the authorities but would like to run all cars identical.

There's no comment at the moment but there may be further developments.......

Assetto Corsa / Temporary Absence

General Discussion / Video Conversion Guru Needed
« on: September 22, 2016, 06:20:51 PM »
I have a .ISO 'disc image' of some old F5000 races but I haven't worked out how to see them yet.
I tried a free conversion app a while a go but all I got was the menu screen, while the audio went through the races. (radio only :()
I don't want to buy something just for one file, so I was wondering if there was anybody who could convert this file into something I could watch. ???
(plus I'm a bit stupid at these things)
Obviously, willing to share the results with everybody interested in F5000.
(please let there be one person who can help)
