Season 34 poll - ATCC
« on: July 13, 2020, 12:34:53 PM »
I've given these mods a go and they're good fun. Choose Group A or C, and also choose a format from the last three options. You can vote for multiple options.

I reckon the group C cars, being more powerful, are harder to drive than Group A.

Personally, I like the idea of driving each car once. It means no one gets an advantage by choosing any particular car which might be faster than the rest, and introduces a strategic element of when to drive each car. The cars are supposed to be pretty close in performance.

After the current season finishes, we'll do an ACC fun run or two (GT4s are out July 16), then try these cars out.

Good find Wally, I had dismissed these mods as they were still in Beta :-\ but after a brief try today they are very good.
Hope you have recovered from your mishap :o.

You wouldn't know it's beta. They're good fun. For those not in the know, or those who don't stalk me like Roo does :) I was on my bike yesterday and a large stick unbelievably got wedged in my front spokes which saw me go over the handlebars and faceplant into the bitumen. I'm OK, just a bit scraped and bruised. Lucky, it could have been worse.

Tell us the truth, you made your missus angry and she taught you a lesson?   :P

Hope you recover quickly, missed you at yesterdays ACC random car race.

It sounds like a bullshit story but that exact same thing has happened to me!

Back on topic :)

I voted for group A and choose one car and stick to it, mainly because the only car i liked driving was the Jag.

My original thought was to drive each car once , however if the default setup is indicative of how some of these cars handle (mainly understeer while braking) ,then I can't suffer them,  In my mind (righlty or wrongly) this is not realistic , during my younger days I use to hoon around the twisty roads through the back of the Otways in kingswoods and falcons and they handled way better under braking than some of these mod cars do.  I do miss the smell of overheated brakes and rubber in the cool forest air. :)

Maybe the default setup is horrid and tweaks can fix the braking issues if so i'd be more inclined to drive each car once.

I haven't driven any of the mod cars yet and probably won't until we decide which mod we will be using, but I did vote for one car for the season. I suck at most cars and changing every week will mean I suck more than usual.

How about at half Season we all have one chance to change cars for the second half of the Season.

That's what I usually end up doing. Note that "Drive whatever car you like every week" option would also mean you can stay in the same car every week if you like.

I've always advocated for sticking to one car, and having to deal with it at non-suitable tracks.
Plus, I don't want to get a car a Victorian has been in! :P :-*
I'm with Rob & Simone. 8)
(but just in the general vicinity, not too close)


I'll see what I can do, Jarmel. ;)
