increased tirewear since using Nixim brakemod

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Tim Meuris, Mar 24, 2013.

  1. Hi,

    I' ve often been driving 1 hour races lately lots in the minis.
    Before I had installed the nixim brakemod I was weaker the first part of the race, but came back in the second part cause of being good on my tires
    with the Niximmod installed I gained a bit raw pace but now I am a lot harder on my tires.
    I often get into trouble in the closing stages of the race.

    Anybody has a similar experience or recognizes this?
    Not that I'm not satisfied with the mod cause my G25 has a more realistic brakepedalfeel now
    but which advice can you give me on:
    1) adjusting my driving style
    2) maybe adjusting my setup (before the mod it was extremely good for my tires though)

    I have like brakepressure set to a 100%
    brakebias is 58/42
    or is it camber or tirepressure itself?

    Any advice is welcome
    (except: choose shorter races :D)

    Thnx in advance

    Tim

    I recently bought the mod too recently but I haven't come across and extra tyre wear. If its through locking up your tyres what you could try is turning the brake pressure down abit to try and stop the locking or moving the brake bias back a bit. But the later will effect the balance under braking a bit
     
  3. thnx for the reply richard! ;)
    I ll give it a try

    No problem let us know how it goes :)
     
  5. I also think I may be slamming the brakes too hard...

    It is easy to do but if you naturally turn the brake pressure down you can brake harder with out locking so much :) but it's a fine balance turn it down too much you won't make the corner
     
  7. well idd
    maybe those two related elements can make a change
    now it's just finding out a good balance
    thnx mate!

    I've been using the Nimim mod V2 for about a year and a half now.
    To get a real feel with it, you have to drop your brake pressure down to 80/85% and work it from there.

    You need to remember, its trying to simulate a real brake with a two stage spring. Having your brakes at 100% is a waste of the mod. In some cars I've dropped it right down to 70%, the way it feels is incredible.
