EU DTM '92 @ Bathurst - Sunday June 14th 2015

Discussion in 'R3E Racing Club & Leagues' started by Kjell Eilertsen, Jun 3, 2015.

  1. DTM 92 Club Racing.png
    To round off our week in Australia we bring the iconic touring classics from the 1992 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) to Bathurst. After yesterdays Group 5 cars these might feel like a sunday drive at first, but don't let them fool you, these babies likes to be treated mean but they'll punish you for being stupid, so stay awake because this is still not your average sunday trip to the mall! See you at our final outing around Mount Panorama!

    Anyone tried this combo since the update, I'm getting a really odd hard road ffb reaction at the apex of the cutting i think its called, as if the road has a kerb going across it or the road is cracked badly, never felt it previously in r3e but aswell as the update ive got a new wheel so it could be a borked setting in the wheel control panel??
     
  7. Haven't tested with these cars since patch, did the WTCC cars yesterday though and didn't notice anything particular.

    @Kjell Eilertsen when you tested the WTCC cars, how did you find them? I tried the Lada and I don't know what they've changed but I didn't like it. I'm not going too judge to hard though as my ffb settings were from before the patch but it felt a bit like driving in pudding.

    WTCC? Is the Lada fwd? what cars were you testing?
     
  11. All cars in WTCC are FWD except the BMW, guess which one I was testing. :)
     
  12. Take note of the change of format for this race;
    Practice: 19:00 GMT - 30 mins
    Qualifying 1: 19:30 GMT - 10 mins
    Race 1: 19:40 GMT - 25 mins

    Practice 2: 20:05 GMT - 10 mins (consider this break/warmup)
    Qualifying 2: 20:15 GMT - 10 mins
    Race 2: 20:25 GMT - 25 mins

    Hmmmm, thought there would be more sign ups for this epic combo...I'm guessing paid for optional content, which inevitably splits the player base when combined with premium only racing equals low sign ups :(

    Free car/track combo might be worth a try to get people involved?
     
  14. Yes, I agree that paid content can split customerbase, but then again iRacing is proof of the opposite.
    But its only friday, a lot of people have not made plans for saturday and sunday evening yet, so the list may yet grow. :)

  17. Unless these cars eat through tires much faster than the DTM 2013 and the WTCC 2013 cars then you will not have to pit as 25 mins proved to be too short to make the tires go off. You will however notice a slight loss of grip towards the end of the race, which is great, makes the race more dynamic rather than static.
