S34R3 - Le Mans
« on: August 18, 2020, 10:45:24 PM »
Brad takes both race wins and the round win, moving him up into 2nd place in the standings. With a second and third in the round points, Killagorilla and Freezer were also movers up the standings.

Round Points
bradc   63
Freezer   52
killagorilla   51
Simone   40
AGK   38
Phil.8   32
Wally   32
Mael   28
Rob   28
Bacchulum   12

Penalties
Race 1
Mael just overshot the turn 1 apex and bounced off Phil, but then spun in front of me. Generously, I’ll call that a racing incident.

Killagorilla dived in deep, and slid into Simone under breaks, spinning him – 80kg penalty.

Season Standings
1. Joe, 109
2. bradc, 103
3. AGK, 92



Round 3 takes us to the long straights of Le Mans (download).

As always, first race 1 is a sprint of 5 laps, second race is 9 laps with a CPS for tyres.

Long straights and my Mazda didn't seem good. Mael's rocket powered BMW will do well!

UPDATE – v1.5 – (19/08/2020)

Seems the officials have received Joe's cheque. I've lost around 9 seconds per lap around Le Mans  :'(

That said the update has made the BMW a lot nicer to drive, a lot more progressive under brakes and smoother suspension. They've just fitted a 1mm diameter engine intake restrictor to spoil the fun!!!!

Thant's my best, 9 sec down. :(

The Group C LODs have helped, I could run the XGN grid offline with only a couple of stutters per lap.
A vast improvement, so let's hope that translates to online. ;)

If it had a Bathurst diff of 3.08 you could hit 302km/hr. Or if it came with the diff it was built with, a 2.60, you might even get to 358km/hr.


 :'( :'( :'(


At least you can still run full downforce, and get a ginormous 72kg at top speed.

Yes, it's always risky taking a mod update while the season's underway, but now with LODs, Bacchulum (and maybe Jamie) can race.
