...Thanks to Small Block Hero and Bazza for the AC Legends Mods.
Hope you're looking forward to my version of the Lola that fixes many of their mistakes and adds the 3.0 litre version as well. 8) 8) 8)

He pitted infront of me some time later so I stayed out for one more and came out way ahead, not sure why. ...
From the car.ini for each car

BMW:
[PIT_STOP]
TYRE_CHANGE_TIME_SEC=10            ; time spent to change each tyre

ALFA:
[PIT_STOP]
TYRE_CHANGE_TIME_SEC=20            ; time spent to change each tyre

That's why. And I might change cars.


Apart from that a ding dong race, took Bruce out early by out braking myself, took Joe out as described above but mostly took myself out on the second lap whilst leading. >:(
But none of it spoilt my race, except that I didn't feel the Alfa gave me any advantage especially down the straights, only thing going for it is that 4WD lets me avoid a lot of spins as you just keep your boot into it and let the front wheels drag you out. ;)

Solid race for me, great battle with Bacchulum but then I suspect my team boss let me through :-[ , then a real laptime tussle with RussG until he ran off but later in the race he almost got me again. We did tangle with him on cold tyres so apologies if I didn't leave enough room there Russ. As is my normal MO i waited for each lapper to light up helicorsa once or twice then seeing as this track is a real one liner I let each past on the main straight. I didn't let Phil through though, I just ran wide there Phil. ;)

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3, not the SLS?
`Yes, not the SLS.

Yes, the timing was tested and worked. AC has waypoints 0, 1, 2, that need to be passed in order to count a lap. With only waypoint 0 (start/finish) on the GP track, looping back onto the track just triggers waypoint 0 again and AC starts counting from there.

Damn double Damn. Looks like my efforts to clean up and minimise the upload has messed something up as it also crashes for me now.
So unfortunately this has become too much trouble. I'll fix the track and upload it later to my perversed layouts thread for use in, if this event proves itself repeat worthy, future races.

Nordschleife with GP Sprint minus Arena.
For testing purposes.
Crashes out for me on loading. The error in the log shows:

"LOADING MODEL content/tracks/ks_nordschleife/119.kn5
CRASH in:
OS-Version: 6.2.9200 () 0x300-0x1
d:\dev\dev_release13\acs\camerafacing.cpp (57): CameraFacing::CameraFacing"

Some problem with the track cameras?
Bugger. Just when avoiding this type of thing lest it becomes too much trouble to be worth it.

AC's logs are very hit and miss, 119.kn5 is one of the balloons! Neither it nor the cameras where touched in my customising.

Will need to double check what I zipped up.

Immersion.
Each car looks and sounds different, it really is like driving a different car.
But underneath everyone is on a level playing field. Though having said that the very subtle differences in each car I would hope are noticeable but not detrimental to the cars performance.
Others can vouch for the suitability of any model I choose as a donor but like you I hope to only use quality versions with very few if any of the problems you mention and I fix any that I am capable of.

What is this 'Gran Tourismo' or 'Forza' that you mention?

I vote for the 98T.
As I have "skinned" this car with two entirely different cars.
I've taken the ASR Ferrari 643 and the VRC McLaren mp4\4 as donor cars, both of which I'm assuming are up to AC visual and audio standard, and equipped them with all the physics of the 98T. So essentially a one make series but with out the need to all drive the 'same' car.
Each car will have a very subtle difference as the only thing I change is the wheelbase/track and tyre diameters.
So choose a car whose looks or sound you prefer but still be on equal footing with the entire field. (on a side note with 'Content Manager' you can change sounds yourself, mismatch free, which for immersion can really help as I found many cars either to whiny or muffled to turn me on.)
:P

I have a layout that's known as the 'Nordschleife + Sprint Circuit + No Arena' 23.864 km. Which features the ability to recycle onto the GP track to start a Qualy run and has a spread out grid where the first twelve start at the Bridge, the second dozen at the tourist facilities and the rest, up to 40 total, start on the main grid.

No worries Slow_as, I saw you coming so the hit was benign. The following tangle was just too many cars in one place at one time. I myself half spun at that kink at the start of the second race, but was lucky enough not to tag anyone. IIRC

Is that the list with the 72D? ;)

Save the 72D for my Ferrari 312T vs Brabham BT44B vs McLaren M23 vs Mclaren M23/5 vs Lotus 72D vs Fittipaldi FD04 season. :D ;D
