Not sure why I got such bad warping issues so pulled off the track and let everyone pass in race 1 and 3. Race 1 I managed to then catch up with a couple of people and pass
Race 2 I ended up in two of the pileups and was way at the back. I finished the race but on the last corner it said the server was disconnected, so I guess it was reset and when I crossed the line it didn't register as finished.
In lap 3 of race 3 I hit a distance marker that was in the middle of the road on the right after the two fast rights a killed my steering so that was me done.
Is good being on the server with everyone and seeing the lines people take the where they brake etc. Keeps me learning. I figured out where I was slow from doing that and jumped on the practice server after and did a 2:04 which was 2 seconds quicker than previous PB.

Are you using an app with a live delta time to see what makes you quicker or slower on certain parts of the track? This is a must IMO. I use Mini Apps - Stats Bar Plus.
I'm using the one that comes with AC, but will have a look at that one. I find on this track I often make or break a lap on the first corner.

Been putting in a lot of practice laps in the 458 and only managed to get in the 2:06s once. Lots of 2:07s but can't seem to get any better. Trying to work on braking as late as I can, slow in fast out. Hard for newbie... Forza was so much easier than this to win
I have ALL of AC on my SSD. Isn't that the point - to reduce load times?
I can't fit all of AC on my SSD
Another simple solution would have been to disable the spin-down of the other drive.
I tried that first but still got the issue for some reason, maybe just a shitty disk.
I asked the dev of Helicorsa about my freezing issue, and he said it's probably because I have the game installed on a second hard drive which is going to sleep, then whenever helicorsa detects a car it loads an image from the drive causing the freeze. Apparently he can't cache the images and has to load then from disk every time.
He suggested I disable the images, but instead I copied the app to my primary SSD and set up a symbolic link and seems to be fine now.

May make it on later, but I don't know the track at all. Just got back from 4 days away with the kids and in-laws so may just mong out on the sofa instead...

As a newbie my usual goal is not to be last. Due to not really knowing the track or car I spun off 4 times in the first few laps which meant 5 of you lapped me changing my goal for the second race to be last but not be lapped in which I succeeded
I was running the car stock as I didn't really have enough practice time to change anything and get used to the car, so will look at changing it up next time.
Still great fun despite being at the back on my own for most of it.

Great. May be a bit late depending how cooperative my kids are going to bed.

If there is room can you add me. What time does it start?

What time is all this kicking off? I don't know the track, but if there is time for me to learn it between getting my kids to bed and it starting I could be keen.
Just in case anyone else experiences it, the Helicorsa app will often give me graphics freeze ups as soon as it detects another car near me. I've found I can resolve this by disabling the app in the settings, going into a race, coming out, then re-enabling it again. Pretty strange and taken me weeks to figure out exactly what was causing me issues. Am going to raise it with the app dev.
As a sim racing newbie I really have no idea what to change in setup, but I have been playing around with the settings recently (in the 458 so really not much I can change), and I immediately notice when I forget to load my setup. Lots of learning to do, especially if I'm in a car with more options.
