LOL, I didn't see your post thing.I assume it's a ptracker/stracker thing

Wally, I've done a few laps on the server and noticed the validity of them is unknown. You know what may be the reason for that? Grat's the same.I assume it's a ptracker/stracker thing. Do you run the ptracker app?

I was having a great time managing tyres and fuel to try and pull off a 1 stop until Jeremy called me after the 30 min mark telling me it was a compulsory 2 stop race haha so I gave away so much time cruising around for nothing ah well lolIt pays to always read at least the first put of the race thread. Think of it as a drivers' briefing.

Ha ha, good summary of the carsI'm happy to leave the cars as they are ... but looks like the Short Tail will need 3 stops at Sebring.Happy to leave it also! Just did a few laps the the C9 is a huge handful to drive . . so you can have it!
@Bird, that means modding encrypted KS content, more downloads, checksum errors, cars all blandly the same... fuggedaboutit.

OK, I've made the fuel multiplier 1.5x. I like the fuel multiplier, as opposed to just leaving it 1x, as it mixes up the pit windows that each car has, so you don't get everyone pitting at the same time, and also gives the more economical but harder to drive cars more pitstop flexibility.

I'm happy to leave the cars as they are ... but looks like the Short Tail will need 3 stops at Sebring.That's interesting, in my own testing I was using 8.7l per lap. Have you changed the gearing much from default?

Yeah, I was really pleased with race 2. I make a lot of stupid mistakes in general - hitting other cars, having stupid offs, often driving too close to the car in front and putting myself at a disadvantage. I tried to drive "smarter", so I held off a bit more, waiting for the right opportunity, pressuring the car in front a little bit, but not at the expense of my own speed or racing line (mostly). I had a great time moving from last to 3rd, taking quite some time to pass cars, knowing I had the pace. Made some passes, got passed again, made the pass again. I was pleased with the result.

You know what? It's all too hard. Each car has a different fuel economy, so needs a differing amount of fuel for the whole race, which already means that each car has to spend a different amount of times in pits. On top of that, each car already has strengths and weaknesses at different tracks.
So I think the fairest approach will be that anyone who wants to change into another car at the halfway point of the season, can. If someone feels like they've been hard done by, by their pitstop time, they can change into another car (and "pay" 5 championship points for the privilege). You might be trading off pitstop time for something else like ease of driving, handling etc... the choice and the gamble is yours.

Seems like AC fails miserably as a sim in this case :-) I can't believe it reflects what's happening in the real world. Not sure if I got that right, but based on Wally's response slowing down refueling speed is not possible. The problem is, if you lose let's say 50s in the pits it will set you back a lot more just because you have to make your way through the field overtaking others in order to get back to the rear bumper of the C9 you were chasing before you went into the pits. No idea what factor you can apply there...it's very individual, but it's probably not unrealistic to say that there can be cases where the 50s increase significantly just because you get stuck in traffic.Well, to be fair, who's to say that's not what the cars were like in real life? The C9 is the LeMans version - maybe that car refuelled a lot quicker. Who knows?

A tiny bit of restrictor is easier. No one has to download anything, which is always a blessing, trust me. Restrictor has a greater effect on high revs I. E top speed, and I reckon it will only have to be a tiny bit of restrictor to compensate for a quicker stop over a whole hour race.I will experiment a bit and see if a little bit of restrictor on the C9 can compensate for the quicker refuelling time. But man, it's a delicate balancing act. Who's fool idea was it to have a multi-make season?
