    Tips + Tricks
    1.AWESOME START EACH TIME! in any car on any track
    A. in this game you can't jump the start in online/multiplayer races, so this is the most important thing;
    B.put the car(any car) in 1st gear and depending on car half,quarter or full throttle, some examples : NSU- 100%, WTCC 13/14/15 Half to 3 quarters, DTM 92 all most full,just below red line, DTM13/14/15 half, P1 full, P2 below red line;
    C.
    REMEMBER since you can't jump start you don't need the clutch, just keep the acc. pressed at the presets above and the car will launch of the line as soon as it's green, you will not have a better reaction time than this;
    D. Go to SETTINGS - CONTROL SETTINGS - ADVANCED SETTINGS - CLUTCH BITTING POINT 1(it's at the bottom of the page).

    2.Leaderboard lap -here we are looking for the last tenth at any expense!

    A. On some tracks before you go on your hot lap (Paul Ricard) you can deviate from normal entry line in the last corner and have a better run for your flying lap.It's not mandatory to follow the racing line before the last corner, just remember that you are coming with a bigger speed than normal so adjust your T1 brake point;
    B. Most people go full camber on LB because no tire wear, but sometimes more camber can create understeer so testing is required before we go there;
    C. Setup from LB will work on normal online races, but preferably the setup should be created in an extended Qualy session as that resembles the most with race session from my experience, might be wrong(developers can jump in and correct me);

    D. Depending on your skill, jump on LB and challenge a mid-pack time, not the fastest time.I usually make singleplayer/leaderboard challenge first alone and when I am confident in my lines and car then I look to see what others are doing;
    E. Do 3-4 lap stints, not just one lap;

    3.Mandatory things for a fun experience in RaceDepartment RaceRoom Club events and others
    - Team Speak - even if you are shy or think your English skills are not good enough you can listen. When there is an incident up front or someone give's you a little love tap or a big smack they will say sorry, or when you are about to lap/be lapped by someone, it creates an all round better experience for everyone involved- Get TS here!
    - Crew Chief APP - if you don't want to use Team Speak try to get Crew Chief APP it will tell you tons of details and keep you honest and safe on the track, very good spotter if you are using cockpit/nose cam.Get Crew Chief APP here!.

    4. Your 30 minutes practice time Guide for Race Department club events :

    Most people just want to join the fun and not practice allot before and it's perfectly fine and understandable so here are a few tips/tricks to make great use of those 30 min:
    - most default setups are more than decent for a club event but make sure you A. have your correct steering wheel rotation and lock, B.99% of the situation you will need 100% Brake Pressure in car setup so change that first too.
    - your first laps must be clean ones, don't push, don't try to follow others and try to put your self in real life and drive as you see;
    -after first laps change gear ratio if needed(you should be close to red line in top gear on longest straight)
    -more clean laps, club events are about fun and door to door racing + lots of banter so race pace and being comfortable with the car/track is more important than one hot lap;
    - doing clean laps you will learn faster your brake points, pushing and running wide you won't, slow is sometimes better;
    - at the end of Official practice session calculate fuel for race, since i am stupid i do like this number of race minutes, 30 x 60(transform all the minutes in seconds, 60=60sec/1min) = 1800 devide all this by the number of seconds/lap, GTR3 Laguna Seca average of 1min.22sec = 88sec, 1800/88=20.4 so i would put fuel for 23-25Laps;
    - In Qualy session put fuel for maximum 3laps and hit the same brake points, your corner speed will be higher and acc/brake transition faster so you don't need to push the braking points, this way you are sure you get a lap in.
    - Qualy - Race - put fuel back, use starting procedure from above, be mindful in T1 and pick your fights, if someone is 4+sec faster trying to follow them will result in a crash, defend cleanly and move on, when someone of similar pace makes a pass, do like Valentino Rossi and try to fight back as soon as it's possible in a safe manner, don't let them get a rhythm;
    - TS - you can intimidate your opponents with smart remarks - You drive like a snail uphill, I am coming out of the pits

    Have Fun!

    Tips:
    1. Use every inch/cm of the track, with this cars, is very important
    2. They spin quite easy at low speed, have the steering wheel straight and then blast away

    Track tips :
    1. hate it from the bottom of your soul, i do....for the life in me i couldn't find an non-understeer setup no matter how hard i try but still when you get a good lap in feel's so good :)
    2. when you think to acc DONT, when you want to acc DONT, when you think you need to acc DONT, patience and more patience being slow in a corner here means you will be fast
    3........ohh yeah...DONT ACC!

    WTCC14 Honda - Sonoma(WTCC)
    WTCC14 Honda - Sonoma(WTCC).jpg



    Track tips :
    1. All the braking zones don't use 100% brake pressure either in setup or at the pedal, it seems the track is pretty slippery and the brake bias in the setup is as close as possible(for me) to being stable.use like 75-80% never full,worked best for me.
    2. T1(all most flatout left hander) T2(2nd gear right hander) VERY important that the car is straight, if it's one inch left or right no matter the brake bias you are going to spin,that's a fact(unless you are at cruising speed

    3. T7 ( downhill 4th gear) again the car must be straight,even do the corner is "inviting" don't delay the brake point to much, after the crest wait a bit then brake to 4th as soon as your car is pointing to the left go flatout, at exit you need to shift in 5th.
    4. Fast chicane(left - right towards the end of the lap 5th-6th) it's 99.9 flatout watch the video at 2.32 a fraction of a second liftoff to settle the car, in middle shift to 6th maybe a liftoff(again very little) and blastout
    5. It's a demanding track, don't expect to much, it's a good track to practice focus as you kinda don't have a breather anywhere
    6. Didn't had much time with the track(don't like it to much either) but i am sure there is for me at least 0.5 - 0.8 improvement.

    For setup, no:)). What car will you use, in max 3h I will be home and testing, I am leaning towards ruf. Until then try the setup engineer

    Audi TT - Brands Hatch
    Audi TT- Brands Hatch.jpg


    Track tips:
    1. Since this is a small track, use it all!
    2. 3ed gear at the hairpin
    3. 5th at the left hander before last corner, small liftoff to settle the car
    4. Use boost only when you shift in 4th after last corner

    RUF12RT GT3 - Sonoma (Sprint)
    GT3 RUF12RT - Sonoma (Sprint).jpg


    Track Tips:
    1. For T1-T2 make the car as straight as possible and downshift to 3ed,i know in the video is 2nd but 3ed works better if you nail the apex
    2. For T4(blind crest right hander 3ed gear)at the exit quick shift to 4th to not loose traction!
    3. T6 again video is 2nd but use 3ed and climb on the big kerb as much as legally possible, in 3ed it's flat out right from the exit
    4. Fast chicane in 5th with small liftoff or 4th flatout
    5. Be patient
    6. i am sure a mid 12 is possible from proper aliens, from my lap i can get a flat 13.

    @Caramidaru Andrei Bogdan Just had chance to play with the Set Up App you made available :thumbsup:Works great,I don't think it'll make me much faster as I've reached my talent ceiling :D but i can now find a set up that makes the car more stable without the guesswork,which at times have been disasterous :),Thanks once again for helping buddy i think you're a great asset to the community :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:.

    GT3 Godzilla (Nissan) - Bathurst - 2.03.916
    GT3  Godzilla - Bathurst-2.03.9.jpg



    Track Tips:
    1. if you have the choice , don't drive, choose life instead! yes it's close to murder(at least for me)
    2. the setup is very stable and if you don't go balls crazy on acc in mid corner the chances are you will be safe
    3. if you want more rear grip, raise rear height to max or/and lower rear suspension or/and lower rear arb
    4. don't practice to be fast, just practice to be consistent and you will finish quite good
    5. on top of the hill from T4 on words control the car only from acc very small liftoff and you will gain allot
    6. for the chicane on top of the hill, stay in 4th, brake and change into 3ed while coasting when you hit the kerbs inside the coast a bit more and brake for 2nd
    7. T1 and T-whatever number it is before long back straight very important, SLOW IN - FAST OUT!
    8. Good luck, your going to need it!
