Is your PC performance bad in ACC?
Ummmm yeah that must have been why I sucked... but no it didn't drop below 70fps with high settings. The three fun runs we've had are the only 3 times I've loaded the game so that may have something to do with it

I don't have either DLC and looking at the prices I don't think I'm going to buy either for 1 fun run so I'm probably out. If I could dedicate more time to ACC I'm sure I would but can't at the moment.

I also disagree that there always should be space left on the outside. It is corner/situation depended. For example Phil and I went into the fast uphill left-hander at Laguna Seca side by side. I did not leave space on the outside for him.
And this goes back to what I'm talking about different people racing in different ways. Some will always give space and some won't. Once you know who those people are you adjust accordingly to save issues like this. I believe you should always leave a bit of space, but some people believe once they've 'won' the corner they can drive for the apex. Probably no right or wrong as rules aren't in stone, just takes experience driving with different people.

It's also good to remember everyone races a little differently and learning how people race allows you behave accordingly.
After racing here a long time I've come to know a lot of traits of the other racers which helps me make decisions on what do it. I went side by side through the corkscrew with freezer and there is prob only 2 other people I'd have done that with. If it was someone else I'd have backed out.
Not saying to me that didn't look more like mael outbreaking himself and not keeping the inside line but I'd have never tried a move like that on killa wether I thought I could hold the inside or not.
I also know killa and mael had an off earlier in the race and what lead up to that probably impacted both their attitudes in this video with t1 and t3.

Seems like the Nissan it surging around a bit maybe the replay. Is aggressive as you say and doesn't hold a tight inside line drifts across and pushes the Volvo off. Think I'd be annoyed if I was the Volvo doing nothing wrong but does look like just a racing incident.

Especially as Joe fessed up being responsible for the bump at the start and not Killa.
Was it just you and I that touched I never watched the replay? Was a lot of cars going into that turn I was on your inside and tried to hug the curb and just touched you and spun. Think you also had cars on the outside. I never said it was my fault though that was just wally's opinion

Shame about my mistake at the start of R1. Was able to make up a few places then put the pressure on Freezer but couldn't find a way past.
Race 2 was similar behind Freezer putting the pressure on. We went 2 wide into the corkscrew which was fun but I've had enough close racing with Freezer to know we'd both give enough room. Eventually he did make a little mistake which let me by as was no way of passing otherwise. After that Wally and AGK were a bit too far ahead. I put in the fastest lap and was closing the gap but not enough time.

Could this be Mael's first ever shot at taking out a championship?
Yeah this is why I'm letting him win I feel bad for the guy
Shame about the R1 incident; the Nissans do need to brake very early and I could see Mael half drifting ahead of me too so I backed off a bit and maybe that caught Killa out.
Race 2 was okay but Mael was just way too fast. I should have pitted earlier I was waiting for him to pit then did one more lap and it was a shocker, delta said 4 secs slower than my fastest, then I came out behind Mael and Bueller.

Fun racing and a good new track for me.
Race 1 my lack of practice showed going off track 3 times one time loosing a couple of a positions. AGK nicely gifted me a position back towards and end of the last lap.
Race 2 was great fun and very close racing throughout. I did get up to Mael like pace at once stage but couldn't find a way past Freezer once I got up behind him. Hoped the pressure of staying right on his tail would force a mistake but it didn't. Seemed he got a better exit out of the first hairpin every time, and while I could go much faster through the twisties there isn't really anywhere to pass.
