Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Re: Season 20 car poll
« on: December 13, 2017, 06:59:50 PM »

I think what you mean is BOOOOOOOOO

Frustrating night for me, glad it was only a fun run.  Porsche race I had some frame stutters causing me to go off track on two corners both getting cut warnings and letting two people by (I did end of with 5 cuts though so would have had a penalty regardless haha). Lotus race had a good start with Shayne and was on him but starting loosing him then suddenly Wally came up beside me out of nowhere. Looked at pedal app and was only hitting 90% throttle. More cars passed me and was then only hitting 80%. Very annoying, may need to clean the sensors. Replugging the pedals usually fixes the issue and this can be done in game but kind of hard to do when racing. I do have a USB cable here with a switch on it so may put that on the pedals and have it reachable on the rig. That way if it happens in race I can just coast and flip it off and on.

Yes please

RIP Bruce. Has brought tears to my eyes reading this. I'd been thinking how he'd been doing the last week or so being off the forum. He'd always been such a big part of XGN since I joined and will miss hearing his voice on TS  :(

I really must learn not to download tracks from Race Department right before a race... speed is all over the place.

lol  Well I've learned something today, never seen the word used in that context before. Now to go and try it out on my work colleagues ;D

Yeah sometimes sayings make no sense literally. Things like 'Mael didn't crash' or 'Mael overtook me'...

Now you just need to buy some rgb strips, and keep going with the xmas spirit!

I've got the same cooler, btw, but I've gone for quietness and ease of use, so mine is not visible unless I open the case.   Not that I miss it too much; I've got a corsair RGB keyboard to light up the desk :D

Hah I did think about the strips but not right now. The case has tinted tempered glass sides so the lighting isn't too in your face.

Yeah it ran nice and cool last night even with the fans set to 'silent' mode. Only thing is the RGB fans are airflow fans so I have them on the radiator. It came with two static pressure fans I was going to use for push/pull but there was no room in the top of the case for that. Was only today I thought I should have put the radiator on the front as there is room for push/pull there. I'm not overclocked so no rush to change it but may do at some stage.

I built my PC on a budget with a mini tower and in the summer months it does get pretty toasty when gaming. Decided to get a bigger case with better airflow as an xmas present to myself, but unfortunately I'm a sucker for gimmicks and the more I looked into it the more dollars I spent haha.

This is my old case as I started pulling its guts out:

Ended up buying all this. Oops...

And some pictures of it all together:

Totally unnecessary but awesome. You can change all the colours and effects on the lighting. This video is 'Spectrum Wave' which looks pretty cool. The photos/video don't do the colours justice though.

KTM if I had to pick, but didn't really enjoy either much

You're just saying that because you know the Lotus is coming!! You were the only person driving that KTM in my very first season at XGN.

    42 kph (+2 restrictor)
    168 kph (+10 restrictor)
    7 kph

Haha sounds right. All of these were with the environment I believe  ;D My pedals wern't hitting 100% so I had to replug and restart AC etc so didn't get any practice time in at qually.

BMW definitely produced close racing but it was a little easy/boring to drive. Even though I spun off a lot on the KTM I preferred it over the two. Nice to drive a car with the h-shifter for a Tuesday season too.

Sounds odd. I've had the same base for nearly 12 months and never had anything like that.

Really enjoyed the track even if the "jump" caught me out twice. Had to work hard during the second part of the race to stay ahead of Rob, could see him getting closer lap by lap until the track got to him  ;D

You were there?  ;D

Good fun up front with bird and bueller for first half putting some pressure on. I started to realise i was either going to run out of fuel or be very close to so i had to slow down and add more fuel to my stop on the fly.

I pitted just behind bird but missed the pit box and had to reverse losing a fair bit of time. I started putting in pb after pb and almost caught bueller again until i went a little wide at t1. I came off the power and slowly slid and touched the cliff which fired me into the air doing a barrel roll landing on my wheels. I barely touched it and was then totally stuck. Shame to loose the place with just 4 mins remaining.
