Time to get practicing for the upcoming opening round of "Sophistication and Style".
Is anyone having trouble with mid-Ohio?
Brad, I think you had your issues sorted, and if Phil doesn't hear by tonight, there will be no change.

Looking forward to getting my mighty tin-top pumping!
Perhaps it would be a good idea to republish the exact version of the track that everyone must have to avoid the grid issues we had last time.

I'll be out for most of this season. Away on holidays in Norway etc. Haven't raced much recently anyway due to various injuries...

1. An F1 driver who accidentally swerves a few metres to the right while travelling at 40kmh??? AND does a perfect tire to tire hit!!! Interesting concept...
2. Telemetry shows Hamilton briefly touches brakes at corner apex and then doesn't accelerate.

hi all, i was having a go at this track tonight and i am having problems with my force feedback. For some strange reason when on the track the wheel is fighting to turn right and yet when on the grass it behaves perfectly. So far I've tested several different cars and it seems to be only this track where i have this issue and i was wondering if anyone was experiencing the same and if so, if they knew of a fix?
Hi Brad, I am running a G25 and have never experienced negative FFB like you could experience in Rf1. I have my basic Main Controls Advanced set at
FFB Gain 80%
Min Force at 12%
The rest of the settings at 0 or to personal preference
In game FFB for each car at 30 to 70%
Hope this helps.
I think you also need to remove any 'strange' settings in the Logitech Profiler that you may have set for Rf1.

I'm in doubt for this evening. Will try a few laps to see how I go but have sustained yet another injury!

Don't get old guys :(

Jeez dude. 4am race which i intended to watch later and spoilers already.. maybe wait a while next time
I wouldn't worry too much! Simone ALWAYS gets it wrong!! LOL

And I thought I was the only one who was confused...

The update log on RD says start positions fixed in v1.2 so some people must have had old version. Perhaps those with noses buried in tarmac :D

ahh ha. that make sense.

AC needs mod version control so this cannot happen.

Make sure there are enough Porsches for everyone Phil!!

:( I will be otherwise occupied for this Tuesday night  ;D  - so I'll have to miss the Red Bull ring. Had a quick practice anyway - and got to a 1:16:9 with ye olde restrictor - thanks for adding that to the practice server Joe.

One thing that I think may be an issue here is the track limits... The last 2 corners seem to be able to be driven all sorts of ways and still register as valid. Anyway good luck all. have fun.
You can always cut that last corner quite aggressively in AC. You just have to watch that yellow kerb a bit. Conversely, it's quite easy to get a cut at T1 if you run a little wide on exit.

I'm off the pace even with no restrictor :(

Seeing the practice server is setup with no penalties 4 tyres allowed out it means very little, ironically those that always claimed others were cutting to be faster now setup a server where they can simply cut to be faster.  ;D

Its amazing nobody here even notices when the practice server is setup in a way that will just catch people out with track limits when it comes to the race night.
I think you may have misunderstood the original point Marty. If I understand it correctly Ptracker and PLP use AC track limits to determine valid laps. Whether or not Penalties is set is separate from that even though the penalties are applied using the same track limits.

Can someone confirm my understanding since I am using PLP and Ptracker for practising.

Yeah I'd been keen, though unsure if I'll need to reinforce the rig a bit to handle DD. Also interesting with the sold rims it won't run at full torque as they can't take it  ;D
Can your arms take it!!

One thing about this is that it is positioned above the current wheel base in terms of performance and price. I was hoping that it would also scale down to the elite level of wheel bases. This would give a lower torque wheel base with the benefits of the linearity etc of a DD wheel base. Making an electric motor work at lower RPM must be expensive? Otherwise removing all the belts and gears from a current wheel base should lower the cost don't you think?

Don't want to cause ructions but this track is too tough for a Thursday. We want "drop-in" drivers to be able to handle the circuit without too many issues. Regular drivers don't necessary practice that much. Mid Ohio might be a good alternative since most seem to know that track?

I have to say - this circuit is like driving Macquarie Pass. I keep looking for a semi coming the other way!!

Hehe, nice analogy Andrew.
