Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: Fun Run 29-06-2017

These cars were awesome, I really enjoyed the way these old cars moved around and the track was rather cool too.

Yeah likewise, really enjoyed these cars. Good call to stretch their legs a little with the banked turn too.

Did see some of the cars ahead jump 10 feet in the air and leave their wheels on the ground in the banked turn?

Had a quick look and the Riftcat instructions and it looks like you need to create an account to set it up on the PC. Everything is just over your local wireless network once it's up and running though I presume. So once in game you can play without the need to have your internet connection up? Do you login every time you start Riftcat or is it only the installation that requires login?

Poor mans VR. Music to my ears :)

I lost metal on all the lumpy and smooth bits, I think I may have used a low zinc/modern oil in it on a hard occasion! So new grind. I will keep the old cam to remind me to double check which oil I am using!

Bingo. I think it was a combination of low zddp oil and heavy valve springs that killed mine too. Switched to Racing VR1 oil when i canged cam. Oh what a pain that was, engine tare down with about 600km done. Wanted to go roller cam but couldn't face full strip down to machine block for followers.

So you have followed Clive (presumably for many years) because of a particular Wade profile?

I should put my old cam next to the oil locker as well but I doubt I'll ever do that again...

Great to see Bruce. Multiple rebuilds is often what produces the best cars.
I see too you have been out to my neck of the woods at Clive Cams. They did a new bump stick for my red motor after another manufacturers product lost the number 6 exhaust lobe. Haven't really used it in anger yet so don't really have any feedback on it. However it does surprise me how many people seem to go to this small manufacturer?

Interesting, didn't realise that. So i should only have been able to join with the F40?

7
Must have been an extra F40 driver this week? Didn't think we were meant to be swapping cars?

8
When joining at the end of practice there was no F40s left. So spent qualifing trying to decide 908 or GT40. Settled on the ford as it seemed ok with the default settings. The porsche felt like it needed a fair amout of tweaking.

Spent most of the race driving around the infield utill finially breaking my shifter on the last lap and having to complete most of it stuck in first gear to finish last of coarse. Awesome. Glad I spent that time setting up the F40.

What greeted me coming around the banking....





Great screen shot. Thats not just going to buff out!

guess I'm done before I'm started as I'm getting no love from Assetto Corsa and still hitting the same error message.....granted I've only ever raced online for AC one since getting the game a year ago, but I know it shouldn't be this difficult and obviously there is either a bug, or password, or error on my part that is causing but  after nearly 50 mintues of stuffing around I'll crawl back into the hole I came out from and hope it can be fixed before next week...
Sorry I didn't look at the forum, glad it was sorted and you hit the track.
Excellent stuff Bruce. Your commitment to making sure new and old xgners can enjoy some racing is top level service. Love it

0 practice laps (or qual laps) + 0 skill = 0 points. (no surprises there!)
I did enjoy the cars though and look forward to the next race.

Race 1 I also found a hole while off on the infield somewhere but got warped back the the pits and continued on.
Race 2 broke the cars whilst jumping it (not recommended in an F40)

Round one lesson then: Stay on the black bit, much safer than the alternatives.

I haven't been keeping up to date with the dlc for Assetto Corsa, but am prepared to purchase whatever is required for Thursday nights.
With that in Mind can You please advise what dlc is required for this season.

EDIT.  I just had a look, and Porsche pack 3 is about it at the moment.

I'm with Imp here, I'll need to get the content also. So Porsche pack 3 is all we'll need for the whole season? Thanks
