Strange behaviour of WTCC on Macau?

    Hi there,

    2 weeks ago I was practicing macau in my seat. I was running low 2.36's.
    This week I restarted practicing, but somehow I couldn't get below 2.38.5.
    I think I ran around 50-60 laps over 2 days, not below 2.38.5.

    I thought, where are my 2 seconds? I tried to switch to another server, I tried 'offline' to see if there was some problem. Nothing to be found.

    Today I logged in to the RPM Tournament server to drive on macau again. My first timed lap is a 2.35.500. Driving style the same, setup the same, fuel level same. The obvious things I checked off course.

    Does anybody recognize this behaviour? Anybody has an explanation?

    Thanks for any help!

    ehm strange, but somehow it's similar to me.
    Offline I drive, lets say 2:32. Maybe one 2:31, but then it has to be a real great lap.
    On the RPM server I drive a good lap and have 2:30.

    When you drive practise mode the track is more slippery than in qualifying. Maybe offline racing counts as 'practise' when you drive time attack?
    But then I wonder why it is only Macau.

    i'm not sure its ony on macau, i just joined the tourney in valencia, so have not much experience online. I just added macau to get attention because of the tournament round.

    I now also found out that I may be the victim of the MOMO problem, trying some stuff now.

    Does anybody have the same as me or robbe?

    Nope, i must admit i barely drive offline (bores me after one lap) but the times i set there are faster then online.

    About the momo problem (see the hardware and software forum - steeringwheel section) that is not causing drop in fps or what so ever! You suffered from the so called: "spiking". you can push full throttle but the pedals dont recognize it! Inside the momo topic is a patch you can download. If that doesnt work. Burn the thing and buy a G25 :)

    I have the same problem from time to time......but i think it has to do with bad day and good day and of course the temperature of the track.

    During practise sessions i can never do any fast laps as in qualy for an example.

    Yes, yesterday I also found out I was suffering from spiking (and a slightly always braking issue). I did a quickfix yesterday night, but it seems to work as I immediately was 2,5seconds faster.

    Hmm, I don't notice this at all.. I practiced offline quite a lot on Oschersleben and did 32.1-32.5 as my fastest laps. In the tournament quali my time was 32.3, so no difference for me :)

    Thats because you have a real racing aura, the aura of a turbonian creature. You're always fast ;)

    Personally, I take the races how they come :)
    You can't do much wrong with this.. :)

    Plus, I rather start from the midfield or from behind than in the top 5 positions.

    Guess that's my hunter's nature :)
