I'd be looking at my temps, and if they're high, the cooling, and the bios.
and the HDD. if it's not solid state , I'd defrag and dskchk it.
I'd also try swapping the sata cables around before looking at a window reinstall

Awesome news Bruce

Race one was good except for losing the rear a few times which cost me. Was having a great battle with Dave O, unable to get past him.

Race 2 was ordinary till I pulled my wheel off my table trying not to t-bone someone who'd spun.
I then cracked the shits and quit. Not shitty with anyone, just because the wheel came off, plus it's a real pain in the arse not being able to use a clutch to spin the car when you're facing the wrong way.

Lack of practice will be an issue, those cars changed quite a bit from qualy to race fuel. Then add lap 1 being the first lap many have even driven a lap close to anyone its never going to happen. For normal seasons its always good for people to try jump in the prac server not necessarily to just tune the car and find lines but to get some practice in traffic even racing others. Some seem to shy away from wanting to run close to others in practice but its one of the main benefits of the practice server if after all its easy to setup offline if thats what your trying.

In the server you can do that but also see others driving the car, share setups and practice racing others or simply driving close to them. I dont think anyone is hitting anyone on purpose, I have never seen that in even a fun run yet thats reserved for the pub servers lol. Everyone is trying their best just at times with lack of practice it may mean either putting in an extra hour or so or being a bit more cautious early in the race if your not too comfortable. Thats tricky too mid pack though as if you back off too much you will get hit in the rear more often then not in the lower half of the field.

The point of fun runs is we can try some other cars and its not as serious, accidents happen in real racing all the time take the Vettel video I posted earlier and forecast an outcome for Wally much the same. :)

agree 100%  :)  It certainly didn't help me doing practice by myself thinking I was on the server; I must have been concentrating hard on trying to learn the track. I still couldn't get some of it right and didn't have time to even attempt making the setup faster. I blame HTC Vive, Micrsoft Surface Pro and my phone....all of which I broke in a three day period. It seems that trying to organise repair is really difficult over New Year.

Anyway, I"m looking forward to driving the Prada next season and this in another later.


Must say I was dissapointed!

I didnt see the mess in race 1 but like the video with Wally getting hit. That was simply caused by for some reason the 2 behind thinking they can pass Wally there 3 wide. Its just not going to happen, after he was spun everyone behind that ended up crashing at that corner.

People just need to leave room and make moves they have some hope of actually completing cleanly. I will take a look at the race 1 hairpin incident later but expect it was much the same if not worse then in race 2. If you dont think you can make the move clean back out and try again later, rather then ruin your race and those around you.  ;)

No it wasn't Marty, for me it was a lack practice and no idea where my front wing was. I wasn't trying a pass on Wally at all, just trying to stay close, and pass the guy outside me which I was in good position to do. The front end just pushed out a bit and I didn't back off enough not to spin Wally. Whoever was outside me didn't look like they were trying a pass either. Wally also had to slow mid corner for the dude in front of him which put him back into us. Racing incident, Funny Video.

This next bit isn't aimed at you Marty, it's a general comment.
Meh, it was a fun run, the first race in a car that wasn't some slow arse sedan or GT car (In comparison, hell even the pit crew were on speed). If you expected the racing to be of a normal Tuesday night standard you're dreaming. Considering it was the first time competitively in these cars I thought it was alright.

I didn't do much practice of the circuit because of the fact it was Christmas and I had better shit to do. Come the season proper I certainly would, because as slow as I am I don't like to make a dick of myself and spoil others races, when they're official.

Prada's not an open-wheeler, it's a track day car. >:(
Amen brother

Sorry, I lost track of days and only realised about 9:30 that this run was on.

yep, yep, yep and yep, please Wally

Unfortunately I'm not going to make it tonight either. I'll be home, but drunk and playing cars.
No-one plays pCars. :P :P

Pity, I like cars that make me feel slow and foolish rather than just plain slow.
Have fun  :D

I find the Formula Abarth to be annoyingly twitchy for something that really isn't all that powerful. I really enjoy driving the Praga, I found that after a little setup tweaking it's really easy to drive pretty close to the limit. I haven't had much experience with the F138 but I expect to probably not even be able to manage a clean lap of anything in it though and will most likely sit out a season of those.

You'll be able to drive it AJ. Maybe like me you won't be as fast as others, but it's not a hard car to drive and a lot of fun even if you end up by yourself. That's why I prefer the faster open wheelers, not because I think I'm a great driver, but I end up normally driving by myself a lot and trying to improve my lap times is a lot more interesting in them compared to more sedate, slower reaction cars.

The only chicane I like is a fast S

Not a season idea, but a one off type of thing. ???

I'd like to do the 1965 Australian Grand prix. ;D
26 laps of Longford.

Sure, most cars were Brabham/Climax's or Cooper/Climax's, but the Lotus 25 would make a good comparison. ;)
It's open wheel but no d/f, so it's not that unfamiliar to tin-top enthusiasts.

Just a dream.......

That'd be awesome

I take it that your rating the Praga as a pushy dog that feels like a sedan. I want your sedan if it handles like that thing ;) but obviously comparing to a modern f1 car and a high aero low powered open wheel car it will feel like a bus. Compare it to an actual sedan then the praga is on rails.

Yeah, I compared it to the other two Marty. I drove them all with stock setup and the Praga was pushy and boring......Just like a sedan. :)

Edit: I've changed my mind. With stock setups I formed an opinion based on one track. Different track usage has led me to agree with Wally somewhat although I think the Ferrari is a long way in front of the Praga, the Tatuus is the ugly sister.

is there any issue or want of running a mixed car season?  so that we aren't just using 1 car all season.. for example.. 1 race in the praga. next week race in the f138 .. and so on. maybe in keeping with the style/type of car but just something different either every race of ever 1-3 races.. just to mix things up ?
I wouldn't want to swap these cars at all.
One is really fast and a great challenge to drive
One is a challenge and fun to drive
One is a bit of a pushy dog that feels like a sedan.

IMO, It's much better to swap cars that are more similar, but still have different characteristics.
