    2. We have a fresh, new way of reporting and punishing incidents in the Racing Club, using an infractions system - read more here

    You are actively encouraged to use this system - we like to keep driving standards high - so if you feel you were wronged in any way during an event simply send the event organiser a private message detailing the incident. Do not post reports/accusations in the thread itself - negativity and anger gets us nowhere.

    3: Technical info

    Boost
    1: Optimum fuel economy.
    10: 14% more power but 28% more fuel consumption

    Downforce
    Always run more front wing than back wing. The difference must be at least 5 clicks.

    Caster
    Default is 2 which is too low. Run at 4 at least.

    Rev limit
    The rev limit for these cars is 15000. But never use that in the race. Maximum you can use without blowing your engine is 14800 and you need to use even lower if you are a hard downshifter.

  3. Nice lap from Toby. :)

     
  4. Guys, do you REALLY want me to sign up to this? :p
    Are you using the 93 version from the F1SR site?
     
  5. Sign me up please :p
     
  6. Oh and just by the way, that vid is from the pre-high kerb version, which makes times about a second slower (because you can't put two wheels over them). Target times were for me 38s in qualy trim, 40s in race trim. Don't be disheartened if you don't get near those times - I did about 300 laps practice on this track for the official F1SR race, and I did qualify on pole and was second in the race (until I got disconnected), and the F1SR boys know this mod inside out.

    Setup tips - LOW WINGS. I ran 3-1 (front-rear), very soft suspension for the kerbs, very high ride height for extra top speed (8cm at least on the rear), and low toe settings. Also needed is a high coast value and a big engine braking value - otherwise you WILL spin under braking, since the only way to do those chicanes fast is to trail brake (brake whilst turning in), and if you don't have lots of coast then you will end up with ridiculous oversteer. 80% coast and engine braking 6 I think is what I ran. Also, detach the rear Anti-roll bar, and put the front arb very low as well, this will help in the stadium section. One last thing - weight distribution all to the front, or the car won't turn in. Lastly, HIGH TYRE PRESSURES ARE A MUST. This track overheats every compound of tyre, especially if you run low pressures.

    Whisper: If you put the wings up, no matter how much more confident you are in the corners, you will lose time. You want as low as you can, although front wing won't hurt top speed like the rear wing does, so get the balance right with the front wing change.

    Oh, and turn all the driving aids off, including clutch. TC hurts power; even though the bloke who did the physics said he had turned this punishment off, he still made TC a few bhp lower than without TC. Anti-lock brakes don't stop the car as well either, and the auto-clutch slows down the shifts. Basically, this mod is set up for our league which ran without any driving aids allowed at all, so if you put them on you aren't driving the same car. Actually, turning TC off will help you with the understeer issue, and stability control costs about 20 seconds per lap (deliberately :p).
