Well my interwebs done asploded - not sure why but seems to keep happening in fun runs - luck i guess ? :P sorry to anyone i warped through - thought I had this issue nailed

I run VR all the time and think it gives greater situational awareness (though I stand to be corrected by anyone i have run into :P). I find it easier to keep track of the space around the car and manage that space more efficiently - it does require some sideways glancing but its more of an overall ... jedi / matrix like feeling of just knowing whats going on around you - I can also dodge bullets

Congratulations to Kcender87 on the two race wins.

I did really well in race 1, coming 3rd after other people's accidents and track cutting penalties, also managing to put in the most consistent lap times.

Race 2 was a bit more eventful, with a few accidents here and there and some brain-fade spins on kerbs, but it was still immense fun. I was eventually in a nice groove, just listening to the screaming V10.

A season with no damage, and tyre wear tweaked so that you could just manage to get away without a pit stop with some tyre conservation, or opt for a pit stop with a short stint on softs, would be a lot of fun.

+1 for season

I reckon vr would be best in single seater ?

100% sit nice n low its great in a cabin but far better somehow in single seaters and open cockpits

That thing is proper fun especially in VR with an arm breaking wheel - battles in both race 1 and 2 were great, looking out the side or seeing the car dancing in the mirrors with the sounds while trying to keep it on the track is whats its all about - also, I have left a mildy disgusting 5mm deep puddle of batty sweat in the crease of the seat

How anyone drove those for 2 hours and managed to climb out and give an interview is beyond me :S

I have a problem :( Practice makes perfect.....ly sure I learn to make the same mistake consistently lap after lap :P

Got disconnected race 1 which made race two easy  ;D

The real disappointment was race 3. I really wanted to make KCender work for the win, he usually overtakes me waaayy too easy. Sadly I threw it away on the short downhill corner (Revolver corner?) to gift the lead to him. Still steaming about it. Well done Kcender, the pressure was too much.

Was a good race man - was disappointed when I saw the big tank-slapper down the hill - was enjoying the tussle :)

Oh shit! :P didn't even realise that had happened Shayne - my bad entirely sorry. Lag karma took its revenge a lap later - how I didn't notice that in the race I have no idea :s

   
  • Kcender ran into the back of Shayne and spun him (the lag jump was at the start of race 2 – this lap 1 incident looked nice and smooth) – 50 kg penalty.
   

I think I recall this on lap 1 and I stand to be corrected (as I dont have the reply only my memory :P ) - but I recall a situation where I was uber close to a car in front that then it had an off but I immediately looked up to the left to see if there was contact and saw none and thought contact must have been made laterally or that they had a moment on their own?

This is the incident:

Sorry for the weird warping all over the place - ping was about 27 every time I looked - will see if i can sort whats up for next time

...it should be on a wheel alignment rig imo lol
If you're in doubt, what I do is go to a modern F1 track, KS laser-scanned, ie. Silverstone or Spa, as the FIA have enforced level pit lanes recently. ;)
It's the best you're gonna get.

Am I correct that the 2015 Porsche runs a different KERS capacity at (i think) 8 megajoules where the Audi etc are in the 4 megajoule category so the Porsche can deploy more Thor power for longer per lap? #continues to dig for more excuses ahead of Tuesday....*
