Thursday Fun Run - 09-08-2018
« on: August 01, 2018, 04:12:19 PM »
Car - Estonia-3
https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/estonia-3.20410/

It was first serial formula car in USSR constructed by A. Seiler and V. Paazik. Estonia-3 based on early car - Estonia-1 (by A. Seiler, 1958). First car was build at 1959. Serial production started at end of 1960. 36 cars was build to 1962. Prototype for all early TARK cars (E-1, E-2 and E-3) was british Cooper's formula-3 50's cars. But british cars was more fastly than TARK's cars, because TARK's had weakly engines and had more mass. Estonia-3 was Formula-3 (International and Soviet union classification) and Formula-4 (Soviet union classification after 1964) car.
 There is only one Estonia-3 car in Moscow today. All another cars is lost.

Could we keep Bikernieki as back up, in case one of the season tracks fail any testing? :'(
So yeah bring the season forward, depending on other members views of course. ;)

On that note, if anyone has the time please run some quick tests with said tracks. :-*

 ;) Races better not be more than six laps as the engines takes damage at top speed. Each lap with the throttle pinned on the main straight costs 15% engine life.  :o

I was not a fan of these cars initially, but I have warmed to them, especially after setting fastest lap with my new Thrustmaster TS-XW Sparco wheel ;D ;D ;D.

what's the wheel like, how does it compare to your old one ?

I am thinking of grabbing one of these,
https://www.fanatec.com/au-en/wheel-bases/podium-wheel-base-dd1-aus.html
or
https://www.fanatec.com/au-en/wheel-bases/podium-wheel-base-dd2-aus.html
Would prefer the dd2, But not sure if its worth the extra money, I will try and get one at a bit better price during the auction

After 12 years using a G25 and then a G27 for a few weeks this is something else, the larger diameter rim itself, makes it feel more like a real car ,and the smoothness is also very nice, just a big improvement over the G25/27, which is hard to put into words, but you are more aware of the movement of the car itself :) :) :). I found the  Thrustmaster wheel in a Cash Converters store ( usually stocked with stolen goods) and it was in the original packaging and got it for $650 , I just had to find out what a high level wheel would be like and I am glad I did ;D ;D ;D

Sadly I could never justify a Direct Drive wheel, as I have to have the FF set very low these days to prevent RSI problems, but I would be very tempted to try one  8) 8) 8) 8). Fanatec DD1 or DD2 , what would the difference be between them :-\ :-\ :-\

Good to hear you're enjoying your new hardware. It should give your sim racing a new lease on life.

Thanks Wally, it has ;D.

Also thanks Phil, this is a great combo and one I would not have thought of, and very difficult to get right lap after lap 8) 8).

This track is almost a perfect match for this car and should give some VERY close racing :) :) :) :) :) :).

What format are you going to use Phil, 5 min Qual followed by a 6 lap race?
