Lotus 98T @ Imola

Discussion in 'Assetto Corsa Setups' started by Austin Ogonoski, Jul 19, 2014.

  1. [​IMG]

    RSR has me at a 1:24.012; lots of lag spikes at my new place and one out of every three laptimes gets uploaded to the RSR database.

    This setup will not magically fix the car if you are struggling just to get around the track. The 98T in AC splits the userbase into two very tangible groups:

    1. Should probably be in a real race car / are already in a real race car
    2. Everybody else

    If you're part of the minority that can drive the 98T, this setup works pretty much anywhere and can rattle off consistent low 1:24's in Leaderboard/Qualifying trim. You can drop into the 1:23's if you feel like playing russian roulette with the turbo lag.

    There is no "stable" setup for the 98T; it will try to kill you, on average, 3.74 times per lap. Don't be like some guys on the official AC forums who whine that they can't drift like Chris Harris after five laps in a car. This is exactly where we find out who can drive, and who can't.

  3. Thanks for setup ;)
  4. Sound like a very tough car to drive & i dont even play Imola before :whistling:
  5. i don't understand how you did 1,22,6 with such a low downforce... I did 1,25,1 so far but there is still 0,7-0,8 to drop. But I am using max downforce.
  6. I'm stupid and forgot the car has wings for a reason.

    Here is my current setup where the wings work as intended. Capable of a 1:22.5 but RSR recorded my 1:22.6

  7. Thanks for this. D/o/ you wanna give Monza a go, Austin? Im currently 6th but the WR time is way ahead, im wondering if there are some curbs to cut. Also in monza the top10 times have top speed difference of like 40kmh so it seems all wings can be made to work there.

    This setup works pretty brilliantly around Nurburgring with different gearing and aero.

  9. haha dood. you are facing war with that generalistic separation ;) though i will go and try to join the "elected" :D

    ok im fine with 1 sec behind so far. and its 6 tenths alone in the last sector. do u use the first gear at the chicane exit? feeling tells me not to do, but it might accelerate a lot faster, cause the turbo lag really takes its time there... cant tell my foot to hit full throttle mid corner, even if the boost comes a lot later. it just wont do it ;)

  10. 1,23,4 (second time so far)... Maybe 0,4 to cut. Very good setup. I would really like to see your Mugello setup and see what you can do on Silverstone :) It is a shame I am a setup noob, but it has been only a year since I started simracing so I guess there is still much to learn for me.
  11. Thanks for your setup. Works very well :)
  12. WR laptime

    Little adjustments to aero and final drive (as Tobias said) will make the setup work pretty much anywhere.
  13. Hey, I was amazed with your laptimes, could not believe I would need to find 10 secs to get your time, and I assumed I was doing it right. Your lap is just like mine but in fastforward mode, kkk.
    Thanks for sharing your video and setup, will try it tomorrow.
    What about the Turbo, why is it off ?
    Here is the video of my hotlap:

  14. It's a bug in the replay files, Turbo is set to 100% :)
  15. Hey bennis, its time for you to share your monza wr video aswell lol

    Also Austin, what is the reasoning behind positive front and negative rear toe, shouldnt it be the other way round?

  16. Pretty much the same as me, exept for gears on some corners. You did first chicane on 4th, me on 2nd. Hairpin on 2nd and me on 1st. Last chicane on 2nd and me on 1st. Maybe there is mine 0,8 difference between us ? :p
  17. Thats exactly what i like to know (but i dont think op will entertain me so i keep it) since every real tuning guide are saying that negative toe is not recommended to use for rear wheel.

    By the way i do have doubt that a game physic will work 100% exactly like real life .. many say 1/8" toe or 0.125 value is already extreme in real life but in AC i see many top player actually use more than that.

    So i guess game is just game no matter how simulator is it. Dont be too serious :coffee:
  18. Hi,
    Just look at my Monza setup thread here in the forum ;)

  19. Great setup, it's helping me improve.

    Anyone have setups for any other tracks? I'm always looking for different ideas to learn.
