« on: December 14, 2016, 07:43:37 PM »
A couple of separate fun runs next Tuesday, both at at Riverside NASCAR [TRACK DOWNLOAD], to try some of the old Porsches:

Race 1, Porsche 917/30 Spyder (16 laps, 20 mins)

Race 2, Porsche 935/78 "Moby Dick" (15 laps, 20 mins)

Weather, a balmy 26 degrees.

I was thinking of two single make races this time. Might as well get a bigger fiield racing together rather than splitting it in two.

I think the Spyder may be the toughest car I've driven in AC. Lots of crashes and blown engines  ;D

I don't know what my pace is like on the 917, but I reckon it's great fun to drive. Insane speeds and I like how it can kick you if you're a bit hasty with the throttle in the lower gears.

I got a setup off the interwebs and was much quicker. Was on a 1.09 but got wobbly out of the last turn and ended up with a low 1.10

Sometimes it's easier to replace the squeaky wheel  ;D

Here is a setup for the 917/30.. not mine so it should suit you guys fine, and I'm sure you can tweak it to your liking

Ran a few laps in the 917, fun car. Setup still needs work and I think theres a bit of time in it still as its so hard to get all the power down as needed. I went minimal aero tall gearing and softened the rear a bit coming from a setup I made for this at Nords, full boost wont last a race for sure so it will need to be managed a bit which is a good thing. Some sort of differential would be good but at 1500hp or whatever this can get at full boost I dont think any diff of that era would have lasted which is why it was made fairly solid. :)

Here is a lap in the 917/30 to show there isnt too much to be scared of in this beast. It just corners pretty slow so make sure you get to the apexes and be gentle on throttle even short shift as it has more power then you need out of slow corners even when running full boost and tall gearing.
