Agree , after reading this I'm even more tempted to get a set of pedals . I need better consistency above all else . just don't want to fork out a grand on them tho , will do some research on the fanatech elites unless anyone knows of any better mid price options.I have Fanatec Elites with load cell. They are good when they are working properly, but I've had problems with the pots being worn or dirty and becoming spiky. I got replacement pots from Fanatec, but the pot gears just didn't seem to mesh very well with the base unit. The pedals are let down a bit by the same old dinky little pots with small plastic gears.

Hope that only being able to do every second round doesn't affect other championship contenders too much, sorry to Joe for not selecting first a few rounds ago that would hampered your championship. Might be a nail biter now though, down to the wire.As Phil mentioned, I don't think the brake bias is great. I have to release the brakes completely before cornering, or the car just won't turn.

The final round of the season takes as to Canadian Tire Motorsports Park for three sprints of 11 laps.
Phil goes into the final round with a 2 point championship lead over Joe.
Phil, 25 kg
Joe, 20 kg
Mael, 15 kg
ab156, 10 kg
Freezer, 5 kg
I have set up an XGN server for people to try ACC, with the idea of having an in-between season fun run or two. The track is set to Brands Hatch.
To find the server, search for XGN ACC. It has the usual password.
The server is set up with day time prac, qual and race sessions, followed by night qual and race. There is a fairly small chance of rain, but it's unlikely (weather is random, within certain parameters, in ACC). Make sure you know how to turn your lights and wipers on.
If you jump on the server, you can type "/admin theusualpassword" into the chat box to become an admin, and then "/next" to go to the next session (you might have to wait a few seconds for the session to change).
Each race is a 30 min sprint with no pit stops. The race starts in a shortened formation lap (i.e. starting just before the last corner). You need to stay in double line formation until the green flag, at a speed of 70 kmh.
The optimal tyre pressure is between 27 and 28 PSI for the slicks (and about 30 for the wets). Most people opt for something close to 28. Very roughly, you need to add 0.1 PSI for every 1° it gets colder.

If your PC can handle it, it's brilliant. The cars are much more complex, the track dynamics are much more complex, and the sound is vastly better. Like any KS product, it has its share of bugs, but the driving is good.

Hi!! The other noight Wally mentioned the possibility to organize a GT3 champ using assetto corsa competizione.I say wait for the GT4s. I reckon they'll be more fun, being less aero sensitive and relying more on mechanical grip. I'm keen to give it a go, but ACC can be taxing on your hardware.
