Post by: Wally on February 12, 2020, 07:44:02 PM
Which cars do you want to drive in the next season?

http://raceonoz.com/forums/index.php?forums/assetto-corsa-competizione-pc-week-night-league.49/ Mondays and Wednesdays, fun runs atm, a few of us from xgn are already there would be good to have even more. Also a Bathurst 6hr race coming up at https://octaneonlineracing.com.au/acc/bathurst-6-hour/%20

Yeah, we've been through this before, and I think ROOZ have got local ACC racing covered, with good size grids.

Modern formula season would be something different and good for a change.

I've updated the poll to allow people to change their vote.

If numbers remain low for Tuesdays it is something that may have to be considered in the future I reckon

Numbers in ACC is not great either which is why RACEONOZ and XGN is sort of banding together for ACC races.

Might have to attempt ACC, but to date my PC struggles with low fps.  I have played around a fair bit with reduced
settings to moderate it but not really raced in a group.

So if the Formula 3 gets up (which it looks like it will), do you guys want to run that DRS app we used once before? Here it is: http://xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=1910.0

What was the difference between it and the standard Electronics App?  Standard App goes green when you enter the DRS zone and yellow when you activate your cars DRS.

This one added all sorts of real world rules like you couldn't activate it unless you were within 1 second of the car in front.
But looking into tracks, a lot of tracks don't have any DRS zones defined. We could mod the car to just disable DRS everywhere. It might make life easier all round.

Actually, I found you can disable DRS for the track on the server, so rather than change the car, that's what I'd do.

ahhh DRS. That explain why I cannot match you and Phil's top speed.  Spend an hour testing low wing settings but still could not match the 278kph  ;D

DRS has got nothing to do with it. It's just sheer talent  8)

Haha exactly. Though I do feel like maybe I should do a few laps tonight now.

Just can't seem to gel with that F3, seems to have all the bad points of a downforce car without any payback from that downforce. Just can't find a rhythm, and without that there's no way to work on the melody.

Cast your final votes... I'll close the poll tomorrow night, and then we'll start season 32 the coming Tuesday.

I did like the suggestion of a fixed setup with the gp3 cars, would stop Joe from cheating  :P

There is a part of me that agree's with this, but there is also the part of me that does like to tinker a little with the setup. It was a huge let down with legends touring cars that the setup options for some cars are pretty much non existent compared some of the others.

Also I feel in this car the setup is more there to make the car feel how you want it to. I used 3 different setups last night from  low , high downforce and somewhere in the middle as well as hard and super soft suspension, ride heights that varied by quite a bit even the dampers were different for all 3. The end result was more or less the same lap time wise. Tinkering with them just made it a little easier to drive .

TLDR :  I'm fence sitting

Fixed setups advantage those drivers for whom the setup just happens to feel comfortable, and disadvantage others. It's like asking sprinters to all wear the same shoe size.

or ask all sprinters to go barefoot  ;D  Fixed setups takes away the advantage of those who are rich enough to afford shoes (decadent bolsheviks), i.e. those that can afford to employ engineers to do the setups.

Fixed setup?! Why just for these cars and not the others? Not really a good idea imo.
Would be good for Joe as he's generally good on default.
I'm pretty average at setting up cars. It's sometimes not about making them fast (think I'm failing at that too often), but just driveable.

If anyone has any requests for setups, post here and I'll try to upload at least a 'car' setup, ie. theoretical numbers for the geometry, such as , cambers, suspension frequency, damper ratios, roll centre, toe as well as aero CoP & AoA (if applicable).
And I'll try to help with any specific issues with your current setup, just ask.
All bulk billed, so affordable for everybody. 8)
