Sorry for my absence recently. Been struggling to get back to it after Xmas. Who knew 3 kids under 7 and a full time job would be so tiring. Gets to the evening and can't even be bothered to leave the sofa. I'll try and make the fun run tomorrow though.

Mine arrived today but is not being detected by my ClubSport Wheel Base V2  :o ???

Well that's a good start. No new Firmware for the base? I heard they've encrypted the firmware on all the new rims so they can't be converted to OSW. Guess that makes sense now they have their own DD.

Haven't signed up Wally but I will try and make it tonight. Just need to grab my GUID when I get home. The link in the post seems to take me to a login page where it already expects a password; is there another page to register?

I haven't even turned my rig on for 2 weeks over the xmas period but will try made tonight albeit with zero practise  :o

Joe must have just nicked my rear bumper as I passed causing a 90 degree turn into the rather solid walls of Watkins Glen.

Damn thought you were well past me when I started spinning.

Had a poor start missing a gear and loosing places. Had a tangle with Able after 5 mins breaking my windscreen and giving me body damage. Also had a spin that may have collected Mael but I thought he was well past me by the time I spun? Limped along for 30 mins to pit and fix all my damage, then on my first lap out I got a little loose on cold tyres and made a very slight touch with a wall which somehow broke both front suspension. Not sure how I was barely moving. Limped back to the pits and fixed it, but came out a lap down on everyone and didn't really feel like a further 20 mins of hotlapping in the heat so retired from the race.

haha I'm not whinging I chose the Mazda knowing it was slower because I enjoyed driving it. I know it wouldnt have much chance.

Hm...yet another track where the short tail will be schooled on the straight, and no way to take the position back later.  Not complaining, just stating the facts ;)

I've managed a decent low 37 but I'm burning up the rears after a lap or two...:/   
The last bit was always a weak part for me on this layout, I reckon in the proper hands the shorty could do a 36 no probs.  I just can't get the last 3 corners done properly, especially the 3rd last, I keep losing grip there (as usual for me).
You're only 0.15 off of Kcender's C9 time!

Might be time to start adding ballast back to the Shorty!!

...and an extra manadatory pit stop to the c9 to even the pit times out :D

No, I reckon even as it is, it's a penalty that you have to try and get past on the twisties, not comfortably on the straight.  The pit stop & fuel usage is an added burden, still.
The Shorty has barely been in the top 10 all season . . . so not sure why we keep talking about penalising it!   Practice server lap times are not at all reflective of the racing reality.

Exactly. Race wise the Shorty and Mazda produce some close racing, but we've had zero chance against the longtail or C9s as they smoke us on the straights, slow us down in the corners but can't get past and even if we manage a pass due to a mistake they'll smoke us on the next straight.

Hard to believe it's already been 12 months. I think about him often too.

I just got an RTX 2080. AC maxxed out runs at 75 - 90 FPS on triples in full race conditions. ACC racing at night against AI on triples, everything on epic, runs at about 75 FPS. Epic! ACC looks awesome at night. The lights of following cars in your mirrors, glow from brake lights, sparks from diffusers hitting kerbs...

Jealous AF



Say's the guy with the 1080TI.... ::)
I would have gone for a 1080Ti but you can't get them any more (or they're rare as hen's teeth).
Was a guy selling 10 ex-mined ones for $750 each on a Facebook group yesterday... was almost tempted  ;D

Awesome! AC really does seem to depend on the track too. Last night I was between 70fps and 90fps as I was lapping but as I'm running at 60Hz anything more than 60fps is thrown away. That's part of why I decided to go for a used 1070 as a cheap GPU upgrade and spend the rest on new CPU  8)

Doh something came up I had to do just before the qually started and by the time I was done was too late. >:(
