Are all RD events without traction control?

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Tim Meuris, Nov 4, 2009.

  1. hey guys,

    I've been rewatching some awesome racevids from RD
    more precisely the footage with the gtr evolution cars (club, sport en pro)
    where Hoogendoorn, Ascher, Kaukola and many others are having lots of
    close racingbattles (one of the best RDvids in my opinion).

    Does anyone know if they where driving
    with traction control on (full, low) or off?

    I've been driving the R8 for a few days now
    and I can't understand how, for example hoogendoorn
    (who was driving one), kept this nervous beast :woot2:
    under control in these hectic situations
    certainly if TC wasn't enabled.
     
  2. Hi

    All races are with TC off, no aids at all.

    What wheel do you have?
     
  3. oops, double post sorry
     
  4. I have a G25, very good wheel imo

    Damn that's really something.
    No aids at all.... and hardly any mistakes.
    Are these guys what they call 'the aliens' here at RD?
     
  5. Nanoo nanoo. :)
     
  6. exactly, Mork calling....

    All our events are with TC off with one exception in the last two years: the current RDLMS league in rfactor, which is designed to use with traction control.

    Personally i don't mind the use of driving aids at all, but i am a minority :)

    PS: for all that don't have a clue what movies Tim is talking about, check out our YouTube channel with all our moviematerial:

  9. It's worth it! :nailbiting:

    In one race here at RD happens more than in a whole season of F1.
    (which is actually sad for F1 when you think about it...)

    Better driving without any aids = RD!
    Driving aids don't do anything to make you a better driver.
    Turn them off and keep on driving!
     
  11. you're right.

    after a hundred times going off the track
    I got tempted to turn on the TC
    but I didn't and I must say
    I'm startin' to get a grip on the R8
    and that feels darn gooooood!!
     
  12. Ah your appreciate the cars a whole lot more without the aids buddy, just give it time :)
     
  13. Cars can be made easier to drive without spinning if you get the setup right. Generally I'm thinking these guys run soft rear suspension settings and Anti-roll bars, with low differential lock... at least that's what I do to make the accelerator easier to hammer. :)
     
  14. aha,

    I've to write that down somewhere
    interesting info...

    I've been practising with the simbin setup now at valancia
    It's a very good one imo
    very stable and you feel the car very well
