As promised and continuing from other threads/conversations (so sorry if this doesn't make sense to the outsider) here is a place we can discuss our F1 needs away from clogging up mics thread.
Fantastic races this past Thursday, not sure how you all feel but i do think that 2010 performance is the way to go, but again just my two cents. Was good fun the other day and hopefully will be again whenever it happens again.
As promised I will post my setups, as said earlier not sure how much help it will be but may be a helpfull starting point, but gotta write em down first so hopefully have them by tomorrow/Monday for you.
See you all soon hopefully for some more fun races
Solved! Go to solution
Well what a season it has been, started all the way back in December, when i was still mute to you all too, it was a much more peaceful time for you i am sure.
Sorry it is late but here we go, the final, the Ultimate, the 99.9% accurate table for what was one hell of a season. Will post Season and Race reviews separatley so bear with me on that they will be with us as soon as possible
I'll be up for a pole position game dan if we're on at the same time - will look out for you and anyone else who may be on too.
Starting after xmas and the new year may be a good idea. It will be a bit disrupting I guess. (Especially as I'll be getting GT5...!) However, a dummy run will be good. How about a track either in the middle of calendar or towards the end? That way, we won't feel like we're repeating ourselves. German GP for example?
So next tuesday is the provisional race day opener?
Might get in another practice run before as discussed.
Also Senna, what car you going to be? Was thinking about Red Bull but might stick with Mercedes. Not sure yet.
That was proper funny Dan. Again, apologies for the 'shunt'. You were just in the right position! Nah, seriously, I was only messing.
I enjoy the fact how you waited, poised around the corner for me. Haha, brilliant.
oh man, sounds like fun last night, didn't realise you were all playing until it was too late, i'd been letting my B-spec driver earn me some money on GT5, give him a ridiculously over powered car and let him race, 20 mins later, do the same again - easy money!
i'll be doing a bit of practice on Sunday afternoon with my friend so should be up to speed, i'll try that set-up dan.
As for the official tournament start date, i'm ok with whenever we start, I finish work next thursday and don't go back until the 10th!
With a longer race, tactics are going to be much more important, I can't wait!
Sounds like Tuesday could be possible for the season opener then..? Dan's tip about looking after your tyres in quali could be important - something I only just thought about in Abu Dhabi. Will be lots of fun and I'm sure won't be a Bahrain bore!!
Good game of Fifa last night dan. I missed some sitters in the first game and should have won by a larger margin. You were the better team in the second and unlucky to give the dubious penalty away. I think the ref had a guilty conscious as it looked like a penalty in the first half.
Back on topic... keep those time trial times coming guys. It's a nice feature being able to download friends ghost cars and it's good to check on the progress of your competitors. Sounds like you'll have a lot of time on your hands over xmas senna... I only have xmas day, boxing day and new year's day off!! :Cry:
Just got a new time on Bahrain. Check it out - could of gone faster too had I not slightly messed up in the last sector. This time I was using the Red Bull with my own specs. Might take awhile to register though.
And yes, I'm already thinking about my strategy for the first race. I have a vague plan & NO it doesn't involve any shunting...
Yeah it was good fun, mics PS3 managed the whole event which was good, we were also joined by HeroDriver, it was good to see him racing in anger again! You won't believe it but Mic won a few races..... I thought i was dreaming.
How are you doing the ghost car things, I must have missed that, is it on time trial?
Your right Dan , it helps no end.
Yesterday I thought I couldn't beat 1.56. I was sure I couldn't get any more out of it but then today, I shaved off over 2 seconds.
I watched both your cars first of all then took them off after a few laps, as it can be off-putting. You tend to follow abit too much otherwise.
But for jokes, have a look my lap. I'm all over the shop! Some proper erratic driving going on. Yet it was my fastest lap time by far.
@ Senna, as Dan said, just go to time trial & friend leaderboards. There you can download everyones ghost lap.
I managed to clock a 1:52.2 last night, shaving 0.8secs off my best time :Party: I'm still spinning on turns 1 and 4 though - any suggestions?
Well done Jay, go for the 1.51 now surely?
Did you download my ghost lap? Not sure about those turns though. Have you made any adjustments to the car?
Should be on at some point today if anyone's up for some practice sessions like last time.
I did download your ghost semi - i thought you had good pace, particularly the middle sector. The lines may have been unusual in places but it seemed to work out for you. For some reason dan's ghost didn't seem to work properly. He was a long way behind by the time we got into sector 3. Have you had that issue?
My set-up is mine own which I evolved, but half the time I don't know what I'm doing. Trial and error really. I'm fairly happy with it but it's just the spinning that's spoiling it at present. I never feel confident going into those corners and whatever I change doesn't seem to resolve it. I will try again later, but should be well prepared in time for the race on Tuesday.
What kind of traction control do you have on? May just be putting the accelerator on too much, have you tried going a bit slower out of that corner, but i know what you mean, do spin a lot there, is frustrating, try to avaid the kerbs as well that may be more helpful.
Sorry for the delay but i have my setup finally to share with you all.
I put the pressure to low as i tend to lock my brakes up a bit, may be worth trying but if you don't then i'd leave it set to default
Ballast Front 60%
Anti Roll Bar Front 5
Front Ride Height: 2
Rear : 3
Front Spring :4
Rear Spring :5
Really not sure on this, i haven't tried really, but whenever i'm online i tend to be completley maxxed out at the start finish line in 7th, One thing that may help is moving all of the gears up one (whenever i've moved just 7th its seemed a bit long/i end up speeding up slower) but i really can't tell you if it is the way to go, that is just a lot of trial and error
The rest is default. Not sure if this is the best set up at the moment, I'm sure i can get more out of the car but hopefully this does for now
