haha I'm not whinging I chose the Mazda knowing it was slower because I enjoyed driving it. I know it wouldnt have much chance.

Hm...yet another track where the short tail will be schooled on the straight, and no way to take the position back later.  Not complaining, just stating the facts ;)

I've managed a decent low 37 but I'm burning up the rears after a lap or two...:/   
The last bit was always a weak part for me on this layout, I reckon in the proper hands the shorty could do a 36 no probs.  I just can't get the last 3 corners done properly, especially the 3rd last, I keep losing grip there (as usual for me).
You're only 0.15 off of Kcender's C9 time!

Might be time to start adding ballast back to the Shorty!!

...and an extra manadatory pit stop to the c9 to even the pit times out :D

No, I reckon even as it is, it's a penalty that you have to try and get past on the twisties, not comfortably on the straight.  The pit stop & fuel usage is an added burden, still.
The Shorty has barely been in the top 10 all season . . . so not sure why we keep talking about penalising it!   Practice server lap times are not at all reflective of the racing reality.

Exactly. Race wise the Shorty and Mazda produce some close racing, but we've had zero chance against the longtail or C9s as they smoke us on the straights, slow us down in the corners but can't get past and even if we manage a pass due to a mistake they'll smoke us on the next straight.

That's a different once. has xbox compatabilty and the sides are fully closed off like the old formula rim.

they also released another one the same as the limited edition one but it was blue instead of gold and had ps4 compatabilty

Hard to believe it's already been 12 months. I think about him often too.

I just got an RTX 2080. AC maxxed out runs at 75 - 90 FPS on triples in full race conditions. ACC racing at night against AI on triples, everything on epic, runs at about 75 FPS. Epic! ACC looks awesome at night. The lights of following cars in your mirrors, glow from brake lights, sparks from diffusers hitting kerbs...

Jealous AF



Say's the guy with the 1080TI.... ::)
I would have gone for a 1080Ti but you can't get them any more (or they're rare as hen's teeth).
Was a guy selling 10 ex-mined ones for $750 each on a Facebook group yesterday... was almost tempted  ;D

Awesome! AC really does seem to depend on the track too. Last night I was between 70fps and 90fps as I was lapping but as I'm running at 60Hz anything more than 60fps is thrown away. That's part of why I decided to go for a used 1070 as a cheap GPU upgrade and spend the rest on new CPU  8)

Doh something came up I had to do just before the qually started and by the time I was done was too late. >:(

Not that I can drive the Short Tail any better  ::)
I'm sure you can.  I've softened the rear up a bit, just a general softening overall, and it works reasonably well.
Took a bit of work to get into the 21's and I know the track fairly well.    Except I have an ingrown hate for the last corner.  The rest is good.

I dont mind the last corner but I hate all the others  ;D

Wally, Mazda has 5 gears ... why did you say it only has 4?
Yeah, my mistake. I misremembered. How quickly we forget the car we ditched...

Poor little Mazda.

okay cool. well 1.275v didnt crash aida64 and the lower voltage meant average CPU temp of 66 degrees. running cinebench now the  will give Intel burn test a run
Seems good, I normally use asus realbench (uses h264 encode) and prime95 with avx disabled (v26.6 disabled by default, other versions need to manually) for about 2 to 4 hours

Intel burn test crapped itself, but a lot of people say not to use it. I ran Asus Realbench and that was all good. I may leave it as is for now and see how it handles gaming for a while.

I've been slowly decreasing the voltage to see how low I van get without aida64 stress test blue screening. 1.28v was all good but 1.27v blue screened after 10 mins. trying 1.275v now and if that's all good will try some further stress tests.

why is it as I'm changing voltages the CPU clock can be 1 or 2 mhz different? occasionally its showed 5000 right now its showing 4998

I've put the kraken on the water pump header and put the two fans on the rad into the CPU fan headers now instead of the fan controller and it is running cooler.

I set 1.3v on the core but I can see it fluctuating a bit so must be a setting somewhere doing that.  I followed a tutorial that should have made it consistent
