With everything set to highest except for fxaa and motion blur disabled I have fluctuating (but smooth, gsync) 75-115 fps @ uw 3440x1440p, 1080ti @ 2ghz, full grid of cars in an evening (low light + headlights) race. Haven't tried much else of it yet

I think the issue is that there is virtually nothing that has been optimised for these news cards from the ground up.  Personally, I don't care too much for ray tracing.  I want to see pure grunt that will propel me through AC at 90 FPS using 180 degree 8K VR.
That probably means forking out for the 2080ti or waiting till next year, in the sweviver pimax review he said he had one on order, so worth waiting to see if it can do it, I think he said he has a 1080?

Most of the reviews I've seen on YouTube have the 1080ti and 2080 virtually identical, not worth an upgrade. Only the 2080ti with a jump in performance ~30% but over 70% price hike, again not worth it. Ray tracing is currently non existent and when it does get implemented is said to be a performance hog. As mentioned this is certainly a generation to skip, especially since the next gen 7nm stuff nvidia and AMD will possibly be out as early as next year, plus Intel gpus 2020?. Hardware Unboxed and GamersNexus on YouTube are good sources for game and hardware benchmark testing.

been thinking of getting one curved monitor to replace my triples but not sure if it will give the same effect or if you can even get them big enough to be comparable , or maybe 3 curved like this https://www.pccasegear.com/products/43413/aoc-c24g1-23-6in-curved-full-hd-144hz-freesync-va-gaming-monitor
 anyone have any opinion on this ?
Closest thing to triples in one monitor is https://www.pccasegear.com/products/42826/samsung-c49j890d-ultra-widescreen-144hz-49in-qled-gaming-monitor but it is only as wide two monitors and does not wrap around as much as larger triples would. Personally I'd go up to 27inch instead of the 23inch for triples https://www.pccasegear.com/products/43412/aoc-c27g1-27in-curved-full-hd-144hz-freesync-va-gaming-monitor to have more real estate and wrap around further. It's just my opinion and depends on how much room you have, I'd rather have one large curve or three big screens.
Edit, having said all that, the high refresh curved 23's would be nice

I've been using mt-04 #69, I haven't looked at the specs and differences in these cars but if everyone else is using a 1600 this round can I have one too. I'm happy with the mt-04 but I don't want to be totally left in the the dust, thanks

OK, I got 75-86 with 16 cars in a storm. Haven't reduced any video settings.
What gpu?
Do you use triples ?
The resolution looks to be triple 1080p

My 980 also gives about 30FPS - in the sun, anyway. Joe, I find the triple screens OK. I had to fiddle with the FOV and the distance.

Good price for 27inch ips, did you set the over drive setting to lower the pixel response time, only asking because my brother was looking at a viewsonic and 5ms response time was not default. Also not suggesting you need it but this video looked good for triple set ups. Would like to do triples one day...very cool

I haven't looked at the overdrive setting but I'll see if I can find it.
I'm not sure how much difference it would make but probably recommended for gaming and you can test the differences at blur busters https://www.testufo.com/

Cool, what did you get? slim bezels

They're these: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/37083/viewsonic-va2719-sh-fhd-27in-ips-monitor

Nothing special. I actually needed monitors for the new home office, so convinced the wife it made more sense to upgrade the sim monitors and use the old ones for the office  ;D

I just wanted 27" with a slimmer bezel. My old ones were 15mm per monitor. They're not lined up perfectly but I spent 3 hours doing it and I'd had enough. The side ones are slightly further forward with the bezels overlapping a little and very slightly higher, so things don't line up 100% in game but it's not really noticeable once playing.

I never posted my new monitors but maybe they helped me in some way this week.  8)

Lego hot rod is fun to drive, v8 tail spin. I'll be at work so I'll miss it anyways, just recommend it as a fun car

Well that's it then, I didn't have any pit strategies set

14
Rito thanks, I did reverse back to the pit box though
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Q. In the top 10. Set my best lap following Freezer and get a good run out of the last turn, slip streamed and tried two wide into turn one (hoping I might get let through) but of course didn't end well, sorry Freezer.
R1. Absolute shocker, jump start, missed pit box on drive through (you have to stop right?). Got back out on track and had a heap of mistakes pushing too hard. Ran out of fuel. Finished last.
R2. From last to fourth, although mostly from others mishaps I had a great race with everyone Able, Rob, Killa, to name a few, very good fun thanks guys
I'm pretty sure it's only a drive through penalty.
I think Wally's correct.
If you stop it's taking as a pit stop and not the penalty.
Penalty was removed even with the stop but good to know I don't have to next time, was a complete crapper that race lol
