Definitely hats off to the non sierra drivers, I couldn't get those times out of either of those other cars.
+1

If you go to about 80% clutch with the throttle pinned for the first few seconds after the lights go out, you can launch the Sierra just as fast as the other cars. Just takes a bit of practice.
Tried that idea works great, thanks AJ.

Car Selection: Round 1 your choice.
Subsequent Races: As per a handicapping method, the better you do, the slower the car...

So is this still happening, or free choice?
I hate it when someone finds flaws in my ideas! :)
will think about this, it may take the fun out of it, ie: one car all season should give us "yin and yan" of each car...



nice work GW.



If gawaterman wants a slower car Bruce, give it to him, he needs some handicapping! But nobody else is allowed to swap cars.

sorry Lenore9 :'(
After all those restarts...
Thanks Humper, I probably should have waited to pass in a better spot on the track, no hard feelings.

Sometimes if you just wait without hitting any keys you will end up back at the pits.
This is just one of the dangers with this track,the tyre markers are filled with concrete
and you can end up on top of a haybale all wheels off the ground and nowhere to go,
just take it easy, you cannot win if you do not finish and the winner is not determined by who gets through
the first corner in the lead!!!

so is this the default setups ? and with 100% fuel use ? and will the tyre rate be ok at 100% do you think
Yes default setups, fuel use at 50% please (I ran out of fuel in the Sierra on lap 11 in race mode)
and Tyre rate at 100% should be OK.
Thanks Phil.

enjoy Melbourne GP.

yep damage is off :) and 17 laps it is :D
I have set fuel rate to 50% or we can have 100% and a pitstop ?

now all i need is the setups or will I go with default ?

as not to be biased, if someone felt like testing the setups posted here and letting me know the 4 would be cool.
I will test and get back to you Phil.
Sierracos setup  good, just change final gear ratio to 2.75 and Fuel to 70ltr.
Merc1902 setup good, just change fuel to 75ltr.
Bmwe30 setup good, just change to Gearset to 5 and finalratio to 11/43 and 65ltr of fuel.
These setups should suit most people, just be very gentle on the brakes ,maybe adjust your brake "gamma"

The BMW235i race is too slow around this track about 15sec slower than the other cars.

A lap takes approx. 2min 30sec. The Sierra has only enough fuel capacity for about 9 laps and I do not think
that Pittstop is working for this track. The only other option is to turn off Fuel consumption.
I would like a 40min race to start the season and see what the other drivers think after this race.
This is a very unforgiving track ,one little mistake in the wrong place and your race is over.

Was Guybrush driving,what I think was a white Datsun, Bruce?
That looks like a fun day.

How could anybody with only the faintest interest in motorsport watch Senna the movie (only documentary footage was used)
and NOT be moved. To be able to drive his F1 beast is a real treat!!!

I found I could get the same lap time out of the Sierra and the Merc, but the Merc was a hell of a lot easier and more consistent. I was roughly 2 seconds slower in the BMW M3.
This was exactly the same as my findings, but under AI the Sierra could do times in the 2m37s which was what I expected  to see
on race night given the skill level of some of the drivers (bit more practice and a better setup would probably help)
.... was rooshooter REALLY a full minute slower than everyone else.  8)
Well it felt like it was taking nearly 3min a lap. :-\

Good to see the close times for the first 3, being 2 different cars.... (Hey Denis, your back with a vengeance!)
I have fallen in love with the Merc ,Bruce, so close to feel of a PnG3 car, and set up with my preferred point and shoot handling.
I also noted the distinct lack of racing incidents during the evening races not just coincidence I believe.

well sorry everyone, I was so stuffed I could hardly remember any of the attempted laps let alone put something together that was any good,
I was so slow mentally, the road was like the opening scene of Dr Who....
I was sorry to see you go Bruce after seeing you post a 1m40s practice lap which was within a fraction of my times. I was riding shotgun
with you for a short time and was wondering what was wrong. I will just have to wait till next week to do battle once again.
