Need more Porsche Long Tail times!
« on: November 01, 2018, 11:32:57 PM »
Hey, if you've posted a short tail time, can you please give the long tail a go too? I've got a feeling it's got too much restrictor.

In fact, I've restarted the server with no restrictor for the long tail.

Thanks. It looks like maaaybe the short tail is a bit fast and needs a little restrictor. A bit more testing required.

Yeah well if Kcender did the time it will end up with 100% restrictor!

I tested Spa in the shorty at your '2 stop' fuel multiplier (2.9 correct?) and needed 317 litres for 1 hour, with a 99 litre tank. :-[
Which car did you work out the multiplier in?
I think the shorty has a smaller tank than the others, maybe an equalizer? ???

They all have 100l tanks, but fuel economies vary (the short tail has the worst economy). I tested at two different season tracks that worked out to 2 stoppers for all cars, but different tracks may give different results.
I'm thinking that with the variables, the cars and multipliers should be fine. I like the dilemma of having to balance pace with fuel economy. And the long tail does weird things with rear tyre wear (with the default setup, at least).

Apologies Bacchulum, I had originally done my fuel calcs for a 50 min race, not a 60 min race. I have revised the multipliers to:
2.4x for a 2-stopper1.5x for a 1-stopper

I have reset the Porsche times on the practice server. I'm trying 50% restrictor for the short tail, and no restrictor for the long tail.

The cars are looking like a better spread now. The top 4 times (different people, admittedly) are in each of the 4 cars.

Grat's almost got Kcender's time in the long tail...see what happens when he's changing into the (imo faster) long tail himself.

I tried to help with some data, Wally.
My times are medium tyres, full tanks for all cars, turbo @ 70% for the adjustable ones (highest boost without engine damage), ie. race pace.
Short Tail probably a bit quick by comparison, simply because I've done more laps in it.
The other 3 have had the same effort. ;)

Thanks. I'm happy with how the times are looking now, bearing in mind the differences in drivers and tracks.

My thoughts exactly. It's a funny beast, the Merc. Prodigiously fast in a straight line, but slow in corners. It would take some learning to get the most out of it, but could be a weapon in the right hands. It also has the best fuel economy, so would give you the most pitstop flexibility.
