There are lots of cars, and generally only 2 or 3 of each available. So be prepared to be flexible about your car choices on the night :)
I find that with medium tyres, you generally need to add 3 PSI to the front and 1 PSI to the rear from the default setup, and 30 l of fuel should be about right for 8 laps.

Thank you killagorilla for your donation!

Racing general / GT3 driver David Perel on real life and simulators
« on: September 18, 2019, 08:06:30 AM »
An interesting interview (in English) with GT3 driver David Perel, on his journey into GT3 racing, the dollars, and driving real life and sims. Regarding sims, he says real life driving style is much more aggressive than in sims. You are always doing moves which would be considered "dirty" moves in sim racing. He also says that in general sims don't get the braking right. The real life feel of how a car rotates and the feedback you get via the brake pedal is not simulated very well.

Interestingly, he says that in GT3 racing, you take a "V" line while braking. Brake very hard, nearly stop to let the car rotate, then get hard on the power. It's no wonder so many sim racers complain about understeer. They're just coming in too fast and trying to maintain too much corner speed.

Wally's got the endurance bug.
He's gunnin' for a 12h race. ;D
With driver swaps, that would be quite a thing.

I won't make this, I have a 0430 start the next day.
You're not having much luck with Tuesdays!

The first 2080 I bought was a Gigabyte, which also died. I was able to exchange it for an Asus that has been OK.

If we end up racing the Supercars, do you want to run Australian circuits even if they might be a bit old and crappy? Or would you rather prefer to use better quality tracks?

Get kcender to test them* and then stick him in the slower one.  :o ;D :P :P :P :-*

*Double check it so he doesn't game the system.
OK, I've added the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport to the practice server, and we'll try that Porsche GT4 and the Maserati GT4 together.

Could/should the Maserati GT4 be put up against the Porsche GT4?
It's definitely worth a look. They look quite matched for pace.
