Kunos Simulazioni physics engineer Aristotelis Vasilakos has released his second 'Go Faster' tutorial video, this time with a focus on car engines and gearboxes. On the back of a popular first release in his series of 'Go Faster' videos, Aris once again takes to the home of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone to impart some useful driving wisdom using the Assetto Corsa simulation and a selection of cars. Unlike last time, Vasilakos takes us on a tour of the ins and outs of faster driving using not just the trusty BMW M235i Racing but also the incredible Mercedes-Benz 190E EVO II of DTM touring car fame. Whilst last time out Vasolakos had a focus on the physical driving line and braking techniques one should employ in order to become a competitive driver, this time around the talented physics creator turns his attention to the more technical aspects of setting up a car to best suit the conditions and ones on driving style. With such a large and complicated array of different settings that can be employed on any single car, Aris has in his near 30 minute video paid special attention to gearing and engine settings and how best to maximise this element of the car setup in order to provide a safer, and faster, driving experience. When quizzed on the reasons behind these recent tutorials, Aris had the following to say: "The first ethical reason is that I always thought that simracers should talk about driving, racing, cars. Not bickering around on sterile flames about which is the best sim and who's penis is longer... So I take advantage of whatever knowledge I have gained through all these years on the subject and try to express it in a way that doesn't annoy people, clear and simple enough to be understood from newbies and just a hint of "high end" stuff so that aliens and engineers can join in and take it from me and push it further, sustaining the discussion. The second reason is that we want the channel to grow, to gain respectable numbers. For the money? Well I doubt it we can get it to numbers that YouTube will start to pay us good enough, but certainly we won't say no hehehe. But the main reason is that with a big enough channel, we can go to the automotive makers and ask real cars to try on real tracks. And then we can convince them to sponsor us to make the Game&Track show even bigger. This is our main side project, mine, Maurizio's and Davide. This show on a real track is free for everybody and we organize on site competitions. Winners get to do taxi laps on supercars with us or professional drivers... and maybe this year we might have the opportunity to put some simmers to try some cars on the side of official instructors! Still early times but we really pushing behind the scenes to convince as many sponsors as possible!" As with the first driving techniques video, the latest release is both entertaining while at the same time providing useful information aimed at increasing players enjoyment and competitiveness in Assetto Corsa. I for one hope that these two video releases are the beginning of a series of releases from Aris, and prove themselves to be useful for new and experienced sim racers alike.
