Hi Lloyd here , getting back into sim racing after quite a long hiatus after playing GPL back in the day. Saw the lights on thought i'd pop in say hello and hopefully start racing with you all.  Been playing iracing for the past month or so however it lacking in the comradarie that you can get while playing in a league. So been on the hunt for assetto corsa racers and here i am :) .

Hope to see you on track soon .

Welcome, we spoke on the practice server last night, come along if you like, Thursdays is all about fun, nothing serious,  the faster guys often self handicap, the worst part is the crazy person running it and how he makes it up as he goes along, so the rules could change at anytime without notice,  all in the spirit of fun of course  :P

Thanks for the welcome .

Bit daunted by the GPL cars , they are so hard to drive after driving the Mazda cups .

I was allocated the Mc Claren  on sign up so will stick with it , seems easier to handle than some of the others.

If anyone has a good base set up for the Mc Claren that they could kindly give me that would be appreciated.
Here's a base setup done on Deutschlandring.
It handles a bit different to the Eagle I'm used to, but the numbers are good, polish to taste. ;)

Hi Jarmel, some of have found that the McLaren is not the best of the bunch. If you have time you might find one of the other cars better.

Thank you for the set ups,  i'll give  Bacc's a go tonight , Been using his watkins glenn base set up with adjusted gears, tyres and suspension , I'm down to 3;18 , i reckon a theoretical of about 3;16. The Hair pins are a weak spot and 2 small sections of the track i just can't find the speed of the top runners.

Yeah Mclaren lacks the speed of the Fezza but i'll stick with it and i like the idea of seeing all sorts of cars on the grid , might have to change for Monza that track is all about pure speed.

Hi all. My name is Mat, I'm 29, almost 30 and I live in Canberra. Been racing karts for 22 years and while I'm still racing, I thought I might jump into sim racing for some fun and hopefully, beat some bad habits out of me all at once, ha ha! Only really interested on GT3 in sims, so, if there is anyone with a GT3 server and likes to race, let me know. Looking forward to racing you online
Cheers

Hi Mat. I recognise your name from somewhere ;)

We're not really racing much GT3 style cars at the moment, but next Tuesday night season in a bit over a month will be more Porsche/Maserati GT4 style.

Hello to all
Scott is the name that my parents gave me, although Mum changed it to dickhead when i was 14.
Before i dislocated my shoulder at work i was a forkie/warehouse guru in Sydney. Currently I'm a DIYer fixing up the house bit by bit with any spare change  i can find in the couch.
I found AC while watching the YouTube(er) AMSTUDIO about doing a DIY handbrake (for Dirt Rally on Xbox). Now I'm doing laps with a Thrustmaster T300 (F1 wheel add-on), with my customised G920 pedals (firmer springs in all pedals) G920 shifter running through an Arduino board attached to my F1/GT Next Level Racing cockpit infront of my 55" screen or the Oculus Rift for supported games.
I somehow stumbled onto this site yesterday and I'm soooooo very glad that I did.
Lookly forward to come hard competetive fair racing ........

Cheers

Hi Scott, welcome. There's good racing to be had here, with decent grids. We race Tuesdays and Thursdays. We've got a race tonight, but it's probably too late notice to get into that one, but I can get you set up for the following week. Thursday is also less formal racing, easy to drop in, so head over to the Thursday subforum and see what's happening there.
