  2. Very cool idea to organize fp's to improve the quality of the race, this way it can only get better!

    Sadly I can't attend either one of the fp's, don't have a mic and my pc probably doesn't like this many fc1 cars. :(

    Will join again next time, I'm interested to see how this approach turns out!

  13. A small report on tyre degradation:

    did a 40 min stint (24, 25 laps) on medium tyres with the Merc on the 24/7 server with 40 % tyre deg, the same % as in the Notes.

    The tyres need half a lap to warm up and 2 laps to reach 100% grip. They stay stable and predictable for 15 laps afterwards and decline first to 99 and then 98% (naturally). After lap 17/18 they loose tangible grip and drop to 97, 96% in the last 7 to 6 laps.

    This behavior seems reasonable, a small build up, stable grip for the majority of the race and some tyre management and grip loss to the end.

    Be aware that these numbers can vary with setup, driving style & track.

  17. For reference:

    [​IMG]
    sidebar symbols , overview and live tyre temperature and pressure values

    a higher coefficient means of course more lift or drag.

    'Lift' can mean "lift" (i) like on an airplane airfoil, or downforce. In AC, a positive CL (coefficient of lift) means downforce, a negative "lift" (i).
    Drag either exists or not and the CD (coefficient of drag) is therefore always positive.
    Proof:
    Drag equation:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] is the drag force, which is by definition the force component in the direction of the flow velocity
    [​IMG] is the mass density of the fluid
    [​IMG] is the speed of the object relative to the fluid and
    [​IMG] is the surface area.

    [​IMG] = always positive
    [​IMG] = is squared, so always positive
    [​IMG]= always positive
    1/2 = positive
    [​IMG] to be negative (a push force behind the car) is not valid, therefore is CD always positive.
