Assetto Corsa Competizione / Re: ACC News

1.0.7 will bring a 5 point contact model to the tyres, providing better handling all round but particularly over kerbs, and TC changes.

I'll take you all on your word, the final version still won't start for me. :-X
You'll have to post something on the support forums (include your zipped up crash logs) if you want them to get to the bottom of it.
Currently trying that Wally but it won't let me.
Apparently, I need to 'specify a tag', but I have NFI what a tag is and it gives me no options or explanations.
Do you know what they're on about?
Add a critical tag from the drop down on the thread title.

We're getting a bit OT here, but I just pit once, half way, start with a full tank. There's no wear indicator while you're driving (like on real life) but you can check the wear depth back in the setup.

Thanks guys. If I could race all the nights, I would!

Even though enduros are not my thing due to beer and toilet needs :)  I will be keen to hear what you think of them
Well, what I like about enduros full stop (ACC or not) is the concentration required, trying to keep brain fades to a minimum. In ACC, you have to deal with obviously changing day/night lighting conditions, changing weather conditions, changing rubbered racing line. What is intriguing so far is the tyre pressures. You don't just dial in the optimal pressures and fuggedaboutit. The temperature is changing, especially day to night, and so your pressures are always changing, going up or going down. At a pit stop, you have to try to predict if the temp is going up or down, and how high or low to set your PSI. Your tyre pressures may be too high for a while, but then settle into an optimal range later in the stint, or vice versa. And of course you have changing tyre wear, changing fuel loads etc changing the car dynamics as well.
As to the driving feel, I like how the cars feel like they have weight, and don't just go sliding off the track at the drop of a hat, but aren't on rails either. I don't have any numbness in the FFB. All the cars feel, and sound, very different.

3 x 13 lap sprints at Brands Hatch Indy.

Weather is mild, around 24 degrees all day.

If you haven't done so already, don't forget to sign up at the Car Dealer and rent a car for the round. Car selection strictly closes on Tuesday at 6:00pm Eastern.

Also, if you're using a custom skin, don't forget to enter the name of the skin on the car dealer page.

Had some good close racing last night. Think it should be a good season  8)
I reckon so. I thought this mix of cars and the handicapping should give some good racing, as well as let people race against people they might not normally race with.

I've started doing ACC 90 min enduros at ROOZ on Monday nights. My racing time budget only allows 2 nights a week, so sadly I'm going to give Thursday's a miss for a while. I'll miss the good racing and the friendly banter. I might still turn up occasionally if time allows.

The Bend's not a bad motorsport facility. It has a big welcome centre with a range of modern and historic racing cars on display, a hotel and a restaurant that looks out on pit straight. There are good viewing positions on the level 2 outdoor balcony and a few grandstands. The circuit actually has a bit of elevation change, enough to make the corners a little blind.

The GT3s had a very small field, only 10 cars, 2 of which were GT4 KTM's, with Whincup and Van Gisbergen in two separate teams. The cars sounded great. Interestingly, in the Australian GT3 series, the cars have a set handicapped pitstop time, based on qualifying position and driver rating.

The TCR racing was entertaining, with 19 starters and the usual touring car bump and grind. Ingall, Tander, Bright, D'Alberto, Moffat and Heimgartner were among the drivers. The cars sound a lot more dynamic than on TV, with a lot of backfire and snap, crackle and pop. In our next season, the Seat Leon has got the raspy, poppy sound down pretty accurately.

I'm about to head off to this... it's very cold, and raining. Horrible conditions to race in.

@Wally. Shadows for the RX3 are good at my end and in the latest upload. Perhaps you have an older version?
It was no biggie. It just looked amusing and a little cool really, to see the shadow of the driver in the car.
