As previously mentioned, I'll take a Dancing Donkey. ;D

Using the Car Physics app, you can get the weight distribution.
Aero Centre of Pressure should be just rearwards of this mark.
In the wings app there's a % figure, that's % front. ;)

Assetto Corsa / AC Track Grip
« on: July 07, 2018, 02:20:55 PM »
Once upon a time, a Thursday I believe, there was a discussion between Wally, Seanus and myself about track grip.
I felt the racing line had more grip while Wally and Seanus assured me it was placebo, and the track grip was homogeneous.
To paraphrase, "AC's track grip is not that sophisticated".

I must be missing something or I'm very susceptible to placebo.
Drive the wet version of Goodwood (link below) and tell me the grip level is homogeneous.
That the slippery puddles are placebo. ???

I still believe that track grip can be variable and therefore a grippier racing line is possible. :-\

Fake Wet layout is included for wet track placebo, don't be surprised that it is so slippery, 1"50 is a fast laptime at Goodwood when it is wet. Use alternative lines to get more grip, optimum lines has less grip. Pretty much first time in simracing when you'll have to search for grip in circuit :)

OK, just to piss someone off.

That soccer team stuck in a cave in Thailand are getting fibre optic internet while they wait to be rescued.
I guess 4km down a cave a Thailand is less remote than Australian cities. ::) >:(
(or Thailand just doesn't use outdated technology.....)

I'm just tired of everyone copying me.
(Nah, not really, I just forgot :-[ )
M1 please. 8)

Oh no. I have been lobbying for the Porsche short/long tail for a long time and now I am going to miss most or all of the season, as I will be away from mid-July to early October.... :(
I'm pretty sure everyone knows my thoughts about 911's (and their CoG issues). ::) >:(
But I'll reverse my vote because if I had to miss the '75 season, I would've been gutted. :'(

I hope others will wait for you grat. ;)
(and make it soon, as I'm keen to drive them as well)

Noooooo... vote for the Porsche 911, it's a brilliant car! :)
No. >:(
The engine is in the wrong place and it's not overpowered enough. ;)

Awesome, more so given she can barely reach the kick-pedal. :o 8)

A very intense and good race 8), up until......

Unfortunately messed it up by bumping into Bacchulum two laps from the end

Lower the wing as far as you're still able to take the esses flat.
They should be tricky flat, not easy flat.
Or take some fuel out, that always helps the lap time. ;)

Mustang Sally's sister. ;)

(a Capri).

The very first race that used the chicane was the 1975 GP.
If we've been able to be accurate, we have so far, so that's why I said 'with'.

The Scheckter (esses) chicane was in use in '75, the bus stop wasn't built until '92!  :P
Let's just back up a year and pretend this race is in 1974.  ;D
You know what? I'm sorely tempted to because I hate chicanes as much as anyone.
Do it Wally, G0D's correct. :-[
The chicane in use, which I forgot about so assumed was the bust stop, was a pathetic, dicky thing in the left-hander of the esses.

The boot without chicane would be more representative. ;)
