Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Re: S31R1: Zandvoort

I expected it to be a challenge keeping up with the Ginettas, but it seems the difference between the Porsche and the Ginetta is just a bit too much. Well, should have done my homework. Had some good close racing there at the back...thanks.

Btw, Mael passed me as well before the start of the race.

I thought this group of cars was excellent. Good, close racing with battles throughout the field.
Yes, these cars should get us an interesting season with plenty of close racing.
I haven't tried any of the other cars and just picked the Porsche because I like it and I've got a setup for it. It was close, but it seemed the Ginetta's were going a bit better on this track...wonder if it's just this track or if the Ginetta is generally a bit faster. I'm so lazy...wouldn't otherwise haven't even tried the other ones...gotta do some homework I guess.

I dropped it off at the local Umart shop (where I bought it) on 24 Sept and got an email today saying it's ready for pick up.
That makes it 7 weeks and one day...wow, I'm impressed.
No idea what these buddies with Gigabyte are thinking. Maybe they assume everyone has a spare 2080 lying around or doesn't care about not being able to use his computer.
Won't buy Gigabyte again.

Wally, better give this one a miss as well. Need a bit more recovery time after a surgery.
Just done a few laps there though. Really great track for these cars.

35
Sorry, won't be able to do this one.

Stupid mistake at turn one first race resulted in me being by myself almost the whole race.
Strangely enough race two was even more lonely without a mistake. The sharp right-handers, especially the 2nd one, were always borderline losing my rear end.
It's a good track for these cars.

The camera that is your 'eyes' can't be off by 10 degrees as it doesn't matter where you put the driver, even facing backwards his 'eyes' are always facing forward.
If you mean the default view seems to be offset to the right a little then adjust that using the 'onboard settings' app.
My steering wheel is out of centre by approx 10deg, but the car is going straight. I never noticed something like that with any other car and I checked if the wheel is centered in the simucube firmware.
So I have to steer (I think) left to go straight.

Make sure all the toe settings are symmetrical in your setup. I once spend a hours fuming over a car not driving straight, reinstalling wheel drivers the lot. Only to realize the setup was the problem.

Haha...yeah, you're right...messed up the toe settings. Congrats on your win tonight - great job.

Wonder why the steering wheel of the Holden is not centered....probably a fault in the mod.

You have the wheel on? (which Holden?)

What do you mean by having the wheel on? It's calibrated correctly and straight with all other cars. It's the Holden ZB.
I see, you mean the virtual wheel. No, that's always turned off with me, but it's clearly out of centre...maybe 10deg or a tad more.

GzeroD, how do you manage avoiding a clash of motor/wheel base housing with U/S centre monitor? I didn't think it was possible to keep 32" screens so close unless you extend you steering column...

Didn't need to extend the steering column, but having an OSW wheel left just enough room between the motor and the steering knuckle/QR. My monitor is sitting on the steering shaft.
Ok, wouldn't have thought you can fit a monitor in between...no way I could do that (using a Q1R). Must be amazing having 3 32" so close  :)

3x32" 2560*1440

Eyepoint 540mm

Screen centre ≈50mm below eyepoint with the monitor bracket angled up to stay centred with my eyes. i.e. I'm looking down slightly

Screen Angles 58°

Screen width 698mm Monitor width 712mm
Screen height 394mm Monitor height 418mm

Bezel 16mm (8mm each side) A little odd as the monitors aren't quite square.

I only use curved 27" monitors, but they are at the same distance, 540mm. Monitor width is 617mm and the angle of the side monitors is 60deg. My bezels are 9mm and I overlap the monitors by the width of the bezels. So I only see one bezel either side of the centre screen.
GzeroD, how do you manage avoiding a clash of motor/wheel base housing with U/S centre monitor? I didn't think it was possible to keep 32" screens so close unless you extend you steering column, but even then it must be really close. Vertically my screens are positioned so centre screens is level with my eyes.

Changed my vote from GT4's to Supercars, cannot give Joe the satisfaction of selecting the winning car  ;D  But in all seriousness we should leave the GT3 cars for ACC.

It's okay dude I'll kick your ass in whatever we drive  8)

Mael will be easy prey...just try to give kcender a hard time so he's not racing all by himself all season ;) ;D
These tricky cars will make that more likely I guess. Judging by what I read about them you'll find me at the very end of the field. The supercars mods I've tried so far were all c** to drive  :(

So if you put the gigabyte card back in the problem persists? If so then for sure it's the card. Also if your gpu temps are good, slightly restricted airflow shouldn't be a problem, your new case has good airflow anyways right?

Ok, I just swapped cards again, the Gigabyte detects only one monitor and the Asus all 4.
The case is an Asus tuf gt501 with 6 intake fans...I'd think airflow is ok.

Many thanks for your help  :)
