Re: Fastest Laps

I just used my Sony digicam put it into movie mode (640 resolution) and filmed the replay in a dark room. Free upload to Youtube... it was the first time I uploaded a video on the net, but it was pretty simple actually.

Re: Fastest Laps

I have a 30" Sony HD LCD and clamp the wheel to the front of the TV stand, so the TV is literally 2 feet in front of me. The pedals are on the floor and I use my wife's piano bench as the seat... when she's not playing the piano that is! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Fastest Laps

haven't tried but reckon it's going to take a bit of practice downshifting 6 gears in a split second and turning the wheel at the same time!

Re: Fastest Laps

Funny thing is I posted the SAME thing on another forum. You need to post 2 times, because you have your online time with the default setup and you have your GP weekend or Time Trial time, inwhich you use a setup.

As for me I am sticking with the F1 Calendar so I only race the tracks they are racing. Indianapolis is in here because I am from Indy so you can understand.

Secondly, aids are a HUGE part of how fast you are really going. For myself, I try to setup the car as a REAL simulation. I see SO many videos and pics from guys that drive the car from above the driver. My view is cockpit view and I don't have anti-lock brakes. Only aid I have set is Traction Control= Weak and I set the dynamics in the race to 2 (45%).

Third, your setup in your home is a big factor as well. My setup is a 72' Toshiba DLP with a GForce Pro Steering Wheel and a Playseat. YEAH it's BRILLIANT.

My Times Online / Offline
Indianapolis: 109.097 / 107.843
Bahrain: ***** / 128.877
Catalunya: 114.694 / 112.997
Sepang: 130.608 / 128.678

Feel free to look up my online times in the rankings.

Cheers,
Host_Killer

Dang I thought I was quick... man those are amazing times. What's your best for Melbourne?

And I'd like to see a lap around Bahrain in 1:28... any chance you can post a vid?
