I wouldn't blame Australia for this. It's really an F1 (Bernie) problem. It's only on Pay TV nearly everywhere to my knowledge. Hope that the new owners will fix this. Basically Bernie's attitude was that he was only interested in fans who could afford or were willing to pay for a Rolex.

I hadn't realised that. Is it drivers in exact same cars?I think one big difference with ballast in a sim versus in real life is that in the sim we are applying the ballast to the driver whereas in real life the ballast is applied to the car. Typically, in a real life series a car is quicker because the car has a BOP advantage which the ballast corrects.Some series like the BTCC also apply a success ballast to individual drivers.

As someone who rarely, if ever, gets ballast applied I still dislike it in any form. Drivers who have ballast drive differently and more desperately and are basically mobile hazards. They are typically faster drivers who resent being 'back in the pack' and will do anything to improve their position. They brake at different points, slide through corners erratically, bitch and moan on TS etc etc.
I say let the fast guys get bored out front if they wish. If they are bored then perhaps they can slow down a bit
Given Phil's penchant for changing rules every week perhaps we could do a short season called "PHIL'S MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR". A different, surprise combo each week. From a shortlist of cars of a 'certain vintage'.
They work well. Could be a cable issue. Have you got surround sound configured correctly? I set the speakers to "small". I have Realtek control panel.How are you going with those speakers? When they work, all is good, but occasionally one of the speakers (usually the centre) stops working and I have to jiggle/replug the speakers into the sub.I just use an extremely cheap $1 headphone/mic set from msy, but only for speaking on, the audio comes from my Logitech speakers.Same as me but I obviously overpaid for my headset @ $14 on eBay. It IS a Plantronics though!!

Got the same Logitech speakers. I think the ones Wally recommended a few years ago

@phil.8 and @wally is this parameter that has been added in 1.12.1 what is causing us to sit in pits between sessions?
- Added IGNORE_RESULT_TELEPORT in system/cfg/options.ini to avoid teleport to pit at the end of each online session
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.Yes Phil...

Surprised myself by actually enjoying the racing using one foot! Must be getting better. I had forgotten how much fun these "slidey cars with no brakes" are. Just tried to stay out of trouble but that proved difficult For the record, I would have redressed Wally's position when I tapped him IF I COULD HAVE FOUND HIM!!!!!
Helps fund your track tires for the GT86...Ivsaw you can pick up the game for about $11 now. I was almost tempted. Almost.

Legends Pack are all rips and are running Version 6 of the tyre model. They also feel pretty same same from car to car to me.Didn't all cars feel the same back then?

A real pity I missed most of this season, sounds like it was pretty good fun. Have tried a couple of times to do a few laps but doesn't work too well - foot is still too sore - seems I have archilles tendinitis. Hope I'm able to do more races next season. Trialling right foot braking but having trouble in close racing due to missing braking points or locking up too easily under pressure.

I've got a bone to pick with Joe then - his car drove like crapthank you Des, I have watched both races a few times and enjoyed them, except my stuff ups. Yes in hindsight, I should have stayed there, I was thinking, "get out of the way" but of course everyone has a greater control of their destiny with a stationary object!
