Whole thing's a bespoke tubular chassis with 908 running gear, once you turn the motor around all you need to do is flip the diff left to right.

Do you think the spring frequencies and damper rates are in a good spot for such a car? I'd like to keep them fixed or with a tiny amount of range just to tip the balance one way or the other. Which way the wheels point I've left wide open.

I've done a quick setup for each car, at Philip Island, they could be more refined over time.
I managed to get the values I was after with what was available, the exception being the XU1 rear (but if you can't change it, you work around it).
Each car definitely has it's own "feel" and needs to be driven accordingly, which is nice.
They are certainly a challenge to drive. ;D

Bump, see post above.

Added link to the Alfa

Updates and final physics candidates for the Hillman, Porsche and Valiant.

Shifted testing to Willow Springs and noticed something in the Imp.
Crew chief is reporting locking right front while I'm accelerating.
I believe it's when the lifted, inside front re-lands but it gives a noticeable pull when it does.
Not sure if this is intentional or the wheel inertier is a bit high. ???

Bump, see post above.

Rationalised the wheel inertia and weights, meaning a redo of spring and damper rates. Both get 5 speeds and all the ratios available for their DG500 Hewland boxes.

Valiant and Hillman have been corrected in today's update.

If we use Hotlap mode and the 'Friends Leaderboard' app we can track the car's speed. I've only done a handful of laps at Big Willow in the Imp and Charger.

Sorry Phil, I've put the XU1 on the back burner for the time being.


This may take a while, so probably not the next season or even the next.

Dated tomorrow but uploaded today the Valiant gets a lot more camber compensation at the rear. Previously the Hillman received De-Dion rear suspension. And the other two seemed to be quite good out of the box.

First time I've used Camber Extravaganza and noted that as well as giving a delta to 'ideal' camber it can also be used as a guide for rollbar stiffness.
If the outside wheel has gone into positive camber but CC still recommends adding more positive camber then the car has rolled too much and you need to stiffen that end.   :o :o

Just had a look, not a drive, but did the Charger driver always have his leg on the extractors? :o

Just drive the bloody thing.  :D :D :D :P

But I'll look at that, VR losers users love looking around and spotting that kind of thing.  :-*

And it is a bit of poetic license that I have left the engine exposed lest they would be covered with a slab of badly textured aluminium sheeting. (Motherfucking spellcheck tried to correct me on that spelling!)

The Brabham would be the reserve car for those who, for what ever reason, aren't on the pace on any given night.
Zandvoort 66 (Sandervoorde)
Oulton Park (was a non championship round)
Monaco
Brands Hatch
Extension Tasman Series
Warwick Farm
Teretonga/Ruapuna (untested)
Lakeside

Looks good for a season Seanus, I would just like to do the 2nd run with the RX7, and then the two with the Radical and I was thinking of one race with the RX7 and Radical together and then we could start the GPL season.

Here is the McLaren M2B WIP.  Almost complete, physics should be final.
Thanks Seanus, the car is perfectly balanced with the default setup :) very very nice 8).

New version of the McLaren M2B up. Same link. Now with LODs and very close to final.
