monaco gp tyre wear

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by naim, May 28, 2012.

  1. I would like to know if it is possible to make the tyres last like real life, as supersoft 30 laps and soft 48 laps as was the case in yesterdays gp, I would like to know how?? Because currently mine only lasts 15 laps on supersofts?? Please help
     
  2. You can edit tyre maximum distance in database.bin file
    Never tried that, but theoretically possible

    Yep, it is. Keep in mind that the AI will benefit from this as well, so that the AI could theoretically stay out 50-60 laps on prime tyres.

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    I have successfully qualified and 2 stopped in 75% distance online.
    I ran opt/opt/prime. Stopping lap 14 and 34. So 20 laps on super softs and 24 (easily) on softs.
    Maybe your setup is hard on tyres?
    You want to post it?
     
  5. Can you please post your setup so I can see it? Thanks

  8. Ok fine then show me yours,
    Monaco dry:
    Wings:both 9
    Braking: balance: f: 46 r: 54 pressure: high
    Balance: front: 5. Rear: 10
    Suspension: f ride height: 2. R ride height : 2
    F stifness: 11. R stifness: 3
    Allignment: camber front: -350. Camber rear: -150
    Toe front: 0.15. Toe rear: 0.50

    I used this setup as it gives me a very stable car with high traction

    OK Thanks.

    My feedback is this.
    By maxing camber you increase tyre wear, the inside edge gets worn.
    Rear camber at Monaco can be very low as there are no sustained high speed corners, Less camber at rear will actually give more traction more important in the many accellerations from low speed essentially in a straight line..
    Maxing toe in will increase wear also.
    Mny ppl just seem to max camber and toe in w/out testing.
    Front springs are also very high which will increase tyre wear.
    High brake pressure will increase lock up a little too.(wear).
    The rest of the setup I have no issue with.

    Mine
    Aero 9/11
    Brakes 47/53 Med Small
    ARBs 6/9
    Ride 1/1
    Springs 7/5
    Camber -3.20/-1.00
    Toe 0.12/0.35
    Gearing straight line from 125kph to 305 Kph.

    Give it a try and see how you go.
    Good luck

  10. How many pitstops do you do at monaco with that setup? (100 % distance)

    It was actually a 75% and I did 2.
    Opt, Opt, Prime, stopping at lap 14 and 34. The primes were in good shape still at race end.
    .
    Options are fine for 20 laps, primes 30. So 100% would be borderline even with 2 sets of primes.
    Prime/Opt/Prime wouldbe
    stops lap 26, 46,

    PLease let me know if tyre life is better with that setup.

    Oh and no problem its my pleasure.
     
  12. Yes thanks it did work, but I had to pit on lap 15 as I was being held up by button but I'm quite certain I could have done atleast another 4 laps so thanks alot

    last but not least

    The AI tend to get off the throttle once you get inside them. I wish they wouldn't. Sometimes it makes it too easy to get by.
    However, it's one of the things that lead me to join a league. It's way more fun racing against clean real drivers than it is racing against these F1 2011 AI :)
