Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Re: S23 Car Poll

911's are always fun and be good to go back to a one make tin top series from the open wheelers :)

had no knowledge of the track and had 45mins to learn and setup the car while being very tired from being awake from 3.30 lol so was never going to work well, qual was average and i forgot to put fuel in the car in all my tiredness so i had 7 laps of fuel at the start which gave me a nice pace advantage so i started to get motivated with the challenge of making a 2 stop work but as i passed phil i had some kind of lag jump going into turn 4 that ended my race.
Was a good season shame it ended like that for me lol even monza with the fuel issue on the last lap lol still kicking myself! but congrats to kcender drove well all season and had many a good race with.

pretty mega race had kcender and jeremy at the start all over my ass for the whole race pretty much lol, was interesting the cars were very different i ran low aero and kcender must of had high because he was all over me in the turns but i managed to hold him off down the straight, had a lot of good side by side stuff, felt bad when he went off down the fast left hander after the long straight, i was on the inside of the turn so had to brake earlier than normal to get the car stable on the tighter line and i think that caught kcender out. But he came back and then the last lap we had a good run again right down to the last turn, i got a little tap that sent me sideways on the exit so kcender got a small run on me and we were looking to go side by side, but somehow came together over the bump entering the gp circuit, i assume his car skipped out over it as we were fairly close, mine stayed straight i felt, i was trying to squeeze him to the wall so he would go the long way around lol but not to be would have been a photo finish.

Best race I can remember having - I was literally having to look between your wing and the top wishbones to see the corners I was that far under you gearbox for most of the race :P awesome race. I have 7f 5r wings in an attempt to minimise scrub and save the tires but it meant if i wasnt under your rear wing under the gantry onto the straight then you would get about 10 car lengths on me.

The rest of the race makes up for the last 50 metres - lets just blame the Germans for building the pit wall there :P

If anyone has a replay i can steal for viewing pleasure and personal James Hunt make believe sessions that would also be magic :)

Haha yeah i believe it good effort, you were damn close for most the laps! I had 4f 3r i knew from past experience around nords that hp is king as passing here can be hard unless you get a good run down the straights. Was a bit sketchy on the tyres and the last few laps there wasnt much left in the tyre with all the low aero sliding but i knew if i kept it clean in the turns and not missed any gears i should be ok but it was bloody hard especially when im watching the mirrors most the time lol

heres my brab set for those interested, seems nice around nords

car was a nugget, something happened at the start i think i tagged someone next to me who got a good start as i was moving to dodge the slow starting car in front, got damage car was horrendous so put it in the wall where it belongs.

never really go well in these style cars lol, felt i had the car setup well though was nice to drive just wasnt quick enough, minded my own business in the race while jeremy battled phil, by the end of my first stint i was able to catch jeremy and i knew he would pit lap 27 so i decided to undercut and pit lap 26 which worked hehe. Ran home 2nd but had really bad ping for some reason on the last few lap luckily nobody was around but it may have been a youtube vid dad was watching who knows.

8
we go brabham

9
Yeah phil its one of those cars where the setup is endless so heaps of time to be found i reckon

As i said sometimes less is more just focus on making the exit neat, the pace you gain from a good corner exit extends to the whole straight. Also wally on the corner cut app i havent had the amount of cuts i have done or the green red light for a long time now lol

11
Yeah i had no issues with cut tracks even in qually whrere i threw caution to the wind, to be honest if your getting cut tracks at imola on the exits your driving the track wrong. Imola you have to be very technically correct it rewards the slow in fast out style, the more you attack it the slower you go and your exits will be super tight and you will prob trigger a cut track on the astro turf. For instance the chicanes in s1 i just drop it in nice and smooth for the first half of the chicane hugging the inside so the 2nd phase is nice and straight and i can get on the power early and have plenty of room on the exits, the moment your exit feels cramped you have over cooked it.

Phil i probs have too much wing, need to meet somewhere in the middle

12
That's the set I ran was great in qual.

13
pretty sure my set is close to stock, ill post it soon. I think i had too much wing i noticed i had a lot of people close in on me on the straights unless it was the fuel load.

Daniel was my cousin, invited him to have a go :)

I tried doing the 1 stop on meds and it flopped haha i didnt do any heavy load laps in prac so when i decided to make the car 130kg heavier for the race it was a basket case and caught me out, the car on full fuel was very understeery and bottomed out a bit so defs need to change the set for the race. The potential is there for it to be done but your way slower than everyone around you and you really have to be on the ball with the car as it changes characteristics in the stint but if you drove it right and kept it in the 21's it may work, daniel was going ok with it but he had less fuel than me in the first stint, he was going for a 1 stop but didnt know how to pit lol. If the tyre wear was less it could be interesting otherwise it is very hard towards the end of the stint when all the tyres are red lol, i should try hards maybe they will work better if there not too much slower.
