Just heard back from support and there is a new firmware for the base I need
The Quick Start Guide states:
"Make sure you installed and operate the wheel base and the F1 Steering wheel firmware. You can obtain it from our official website (www.fanatec.com), refer to our download section.
hahah

Awesome, I've only got $66 damage fee.  I thought it'll be worse...so I guess wall hits don't really count?

Just a reminder the dealer is here: https://xgnsimracing.com.au/car-dealer
No, wall hits don't count. It's mainly to discourage you from hitting another car only.
I hope it works in future ...
I didn't hit anyone, they hit me and my bill is $324  :o

In the server logs and clearly visible in the replays, you had 3 contacts in both races 1 and 3, including one that pushed you into the wall at T1. Human memory is a fallible thing :) You can always see your contacts in the race results.

P.S. It's $234, not $324.
Now lets recap - your comment was that it is to discourage "you" from hitting another car ..  ::)
I didn't say there wasn't contact ....
I said "I didn't hit anyone, they hit me" (this isn't a complaint either) ...  :P This is why I say "I hope it works in the future" ... you know, so other people don't hit me ...
** sigh ** I hope I have explained it clearly enough now  :P :P

You are correct in the damage bill - just my dyslexia kicking in there  ;D ;D

Funny that LFS still had a better interface & community features then, than AC now. Huh.
In my mind AC has never past the Beta stage. It's woeful in so many areas.

Well I must say a very unexpected result for the Shorty here. I was happy with my pace but I expected the Long Tail guys to be faster with the long straights here.
I was very surprised to qualify 3rd.
At the start of the race Jeremy and Mael got past with the Long Tails extra power and I had some great racing to wrestle the positions back by which time Kcender and Matthew had pulled out a 10+ second gap.
After that I was (unbelievably) pulling in the leaders and making a gap behind, but pushing really hard all the time as I knew the Shorty was going to have a much longer pit stop than any of the other cars.
Coming up to my pit stop, I had the gap in front to Matthew down to 4 seconds and the gap behind to Phil at 25 seconds.
After the pit stops shook out, it was 30 seconds to Matthew in front and 6 seconds to Phil behind .... whew - glad to have made it out in front of Phil.
Then Matthew put the hammer down in the second stint and pulled away as I expected from the Long Tail at this track. I managed pulled away from Phil and finished in an unexpected 3rd place  ;D ;D

Good thing the Shorty still had a 10kg ballast handicap or I'm sure it would have blown the field away   :P :o

37
That was fast
Yeah, they tested it at MSY, confirmed it was dead, and just exchanged it.
Cool  8)  ... There is an MSY just down the road from me. Got a few things there but never had to take any back yet   ;D

38
I think I'm too embarrassed to talk about my race .... my own worst enemy  :-[ Blew the only chance the handicapped Shorty had of winning a race. Still struggling to see why the Shorty was handicapped at all, let alone still handicapped ...
But then I found the second half of the race to be fun trying to come back from a lap down  ;D  So that's a positive  :o

39
dumb question....but what is a GUID and where would I find one?
It's your Steam ID, a 17 digit number. It's also in AC's race.ini file.
In Steam, look at your Profile and you will be able to see your GUID in the web address - see attachment ...

I think the Shorty needs more handicap  :o

Qual setup attached for Shorty drivers to try ...

I had a good night  ;D
Didn't get everything out of it in qually, but still a fairly good lap and good enough to qually 4th,
Before race start, I predicted it didn't much matter where I quallied as I'd be behind the Merc's and Longy's by the end of the straight.
As predicted this was the case, but the good qually meant I was first in line behind them in 9th. Picked up 2 spots with the Keith/Mael tangle.
I was much faster than Brad, but couldn't do anything until he made a mistake. Managed to get by ab, then Freezer went off as I was getting close to him.
Matthew must have had some issue and came back to me, then at the icy left turn he went wide and I stayed on the line. As we converged my front lightly tapped his rear (I wasn't even attempting an overtake) and turned Matthew sideways. Waited for him to get going and pressed on. About 8 seconds lost.
This incident turned out to be crucial as after the pit stops Brad (with much shorter stop) came out just in front of me, and although I was much faster I couldn't do anything as he just pulled away after the exit of every turn. I must say it was great fun trying to get Brad - I even managed to stick the nose up the inside a few times but was unable to complete a pass.
5th was the best possible, but 6th is still a great result for the might Shorty  ;D ;D ;D

Should be an interesting race.

Shorty will lose all hope after the long pit stop of course.

43
Wally, Mazda has 5 gears ... why did you say it only has 4?

44
I will be away this week.
Not looking good for the Shorty again anyway :)

45
Gonna be a long race, with 3600 laps. :o
Man that's a lot of refuelling for our Shorty  :o
