S17R3: Spa
« on: June 06, 2017, 11:05:21 PM »
R3: Jun 13, Spa, 16 laps + 10 laps

Off to Belgium.

Weather Forecast (long range outlook is cold, 10 degrees and quite a strong SW wind). This means a pretty strong tailwind at the very fast turn 18, so you might lose a bit of downforce there. Conversely, quite strong downforce coming out of Pouhon at turn 12.

Very unfortunately I will miss this race, but will be back for the next one.

OK. No worries Russ.

We might need to figure out how to get MR ratings on the practice server. I've been taken out by so many idiots driving backwards!

(My theory is there are players being paid by other game developers to make Ac multiplayer look bad, what other reason can there be for so many idiots?)

Yeah was hoping not, and it's good to have more people on the server, quite a few have been from Aus, but there were also people incapable of driving. I did a 10 lap race yesterday and was taken out on lap 9 by somebody who'd just joined the server and was trying to block me then took me out.

Phil said MR hadn't been enabled for the practice server, but he was going to run it.

With the same aero, it can only come down to corner exit speed. Maybe gearing too?

I ran some testing on 2 setups with the same aero but differing suspension setups.
One gained time through Eau rouge (even though both were flat) producing a 5kph gain by the end of Kemmel.
The same set was quicker through Pouhon and Paul Frere as well but slower in the twistier sections.

So it's not just aero that effects top speed. ;)

Here's my time compared to fastest time setter Andyo450. He's killing me through Pouhon. I wonder if he has more aero than me? Probably, as I have more speed up Kemmel Straight.
