Challenge! Solitude in an F40
« on: December 28, 2014, 08:46:31 PM »
I challenge you guys for a real trial, this will sort the men out :)

F40 S3 at Solitude.

Edit: track d/l:  http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/solitude-rennstrecke-1964-by-neelj-and-rainmaker.18439/

Anything under 3:35 and I'll give you you can drive the F40 properly.
My pb is 3:29.355 at the moment, and I know that there's more in it.  Guy will beat me by 3 seconds.

It's really something to brake at the end of the long straight from 320+ km/h on overheated tyres ;)
And the jumps!  Man this track is fast becoming one of my favourites. 

This is the setup I run with, not much (you can't do much!) done but it may help.

(Btw, I've tried the ginetta here, too, and that's an interesting drive...mostly bouncing off the limiter, hehe.  The ginetta is a very nice tame car)

if you want to race together, I have put 5 F40 S3s on the Solitude track.

Never seen the track but Im bored atm so will give it a run, I do like the f40 but Im not very quick so if I get within 10 seconds of the pass mark I will be happy.  ;D

I did one lap the track was a bit off putting with a big green wall down both sides, reminded me too much of GPL. I ended up jumping on a busy server instead, I may go back to it one day but Im really not a fan of such old conversions that are pretty much as they were nearly 20 years ago.

Eh?  Something is different here...I didn't see big green walls.  I saw trees and fences, and hills, etc...
Here are a couple of vids - or just google "assetto corsa solitude", this is what I see, pretty much.

Not so easy to spot on the single screen replay but down the back straight at around 1 min of the first video you have a big flat green wall with tree textures and the odd tree sticking out every 30m or so. I am pretty sure official Monza 66 also does this but they have trees so thick you cant really see that wall. I drove past this a couple times and just didnt really want to drive the track much as it just looks real bad to me and the layout I actually found a bit boring too.
