Assetto Corsa / Re: AC News
« on: January 22, 2017, 04:53:45 PM »
yeah that is pretty messed up , lord Kunos is going power crazy or his money lust has made him delusional or something, sorta worried about AC and wish there was an alternative, that was more polished,  cause sorta losing interest in AC ,all we get is new cars, which i wouldn't have driven 80% of and the odd track.

I read somewhere assetto corsa is what you get when you surround yourself with yes men who agree to everything you say and I agree
Yes Phil...
Yes Phil

I know it's not a 1963 Plymouth or Galaxie , but can it be added to the current season's car list?
I think it is too fast Bruce, after playing with setup just a few laps around 60s Hockenheim I was 7 seconds faster than the Ford GT40. Have
to test with ballast maybe. Need to soften rear end in setup to make it handle, great car though  ;D ;D ;D

Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: S7 R3 - Hockenheimring - 26-01-2017
« on: January 21, 2017, 07:16:30 PM »
The name of the track as displayed in the Server Manager is "Hockenheim GP Kurs F3 60s" (not sure why, but thought I'd point that out in case you missed it because of the odd name)
On my server manager in the track listing it appears as "60s Hockenheim GP Kurs F3" before the other tracks in alphabetical order.

found it thanks  server is up, let me know if it doesn't work
Thanks Phil, all good.

Problem with that one is that the pits don't work
As it is a sprint round that would not really matter, you have held races at this track would you recommend it ? I just like the 60's feel of the track.

I wish to apologize for my TS behavior last night , I was feeling unusually tired and was having trouble concentrating.
I had forgotten I had TS mute key , I should have used that, rather than blame everyone else.
I hope this does not dampen the the fun factor of Thursday night racing.

sincerely,
 
roo.

I didn't mind driving it with ballast was still lots of bucking fun :)))  lots of fun in fact, really enjoyed
  let me know what to do :)
OK, leave track as is but maybe reduce ballast to 150kg or less.

I only went up to 200kg in testing, it is what I will run, most will have 100 or less I reckon
Sounds like a good plan.

lol I'm working on the basis that ballast will help to settle the car on the banks ...!!

You're not wrong. The 908LH nearly has a competitive lap time but I just can't tune the suspension enough to maintain speed in the banking!!

it doesn't, 200kg brings me back to 2.30 lap times and make the car a wild bucking bronco beast
Should we go back to Monza 66 Road Course with the F40 given a 50kg ballast, all the practice people have done will not have been wasted
and if the F40 is no fun to drive with heaps of ballast, it defeats the purpose of Thursday night racing being about FUN.

Yeah, I've only ever paid for two pieces of software in 27 years. Grand Prix 3 (2000) and Assetto Corsa (2016)
Nothing to be proud off, if the creators do not get paid we soon run out of creators !!!!!!!!

Any chance of limiting the tire choices on the F40? The poor old Porsche needs some degree of hope  for race!

is it heaps faster ?

and what tyers to allow for it the street or the street90s
Phil, I was thinking of increasing the "slipstream effect" from x1 to x2 or even x3 to allow for the slower top speed of the 908, I think it will even out the difference and even create closer racing on this unique circuit.

how do you do that
Good question, I presumed it would be in the server options, but discovered it is not in my server setup options.
In Offline mode it is under tyre wear, fuel consumption etc. I guess it must be possible to change, but beyond my knowledge.
I guess other option would be try Street 90s tyres and see what lap times are being set.

Its not possible to change this in a server, its only an offline option. This track is very much a power circuit as its full throttle maybe 95% of a lap in nearly any car. So whichever car gets the higher top speed will pretty much always be quicker there, you do have the option of limiting tyres but thats only going to effect 4 corners of the lap and I dont think it would have much effect on the cars through the banking but it will also effect tyre wear over a longer run.

You may be best off using the old simple ballast to slow down the faster cars at this track.  ;)
Thanks Marty.
