    Join us for a fun evening of open wheeled club racing action and setup basics.


    Wait? What is this?
    This event is meant to be the step between the normal Club Races and the Social events.
    That means an easy to drive car with clear racing affinity and a more and more open setup.
    The goal of this event is to get used to play with the basics of the car setup without getting too technical about it.

    Who can join?

    IMPORTANT INFO:
    Read about the used NoCut-Mod here: LINK

    Time for something different:
    We opened the setup step after step since the beginning of this series but over the last weeks we lost more and more drivers during the race to bad setups. Be it limited time, limited motivation or anything else. For other drivers it got boring because I didn't open up anything in the last weeks.

    So from now on the server will provide a fixed setup that is fast and competitive but always more on the safe side than for the pole position!
    At the same time the suspension is now open to play with. The default is pretty good but for absolute fine tuning you will need to adjust a few things.

    As always I will upload my personal race setup before the event starts so you all can just put that in and be safe and fast.

    For personal preference of oversteer or understeer:
    - more understeering: stiffer front, softer rear
    - more oversteering: softer front, stiffer rear
    Beware: the softer the car, the more traction you will have but the more you lose reaction time from the car!



    Signing myself up :)

    Weather: Back in the actually NOT so cold British Autumn!
    - 16°C Air
    - 20°C Track
    No Wind from now on! We'll keep focusing on racing!

    Nurburgring GP-GT

    A message to all Drivers

    If you run off track, you have to check and see that its clear before you re-enter the track. Do not just keep the gas pinned and pull back on track.
    When entering the track from the pits stay off the racing line until you are up to speed and do not race on your out lap. Let other drivers by in qualifying.
    On re-entering the track stay off the racing line until you are up to race speed and do not block any fast approaching car. Remember, you've made the mistake by going off so let them by cleanly.


    Golden Rule

    1. Be 100% sure it's not your fault and just carry on like nothing happened and take the risk of being banned for 30 days.
    2. Play on the safe side and wait for the affected drivers, knowing 100% sure you will not get a ban.
    Track limits
    1. No more than 2 wheels over the white/yellow line without a complete lift of the gas please if it is safe to do so.
      You will be penalized if you break our rules
    Note: Please use your full real name in teamspeak. Not doing so may result in you being kicked from the server if an admin cannot identify you as a premium member.

    sign me up pls.
    regarding the setup question from yesterday - actually I really appreciate that you do and post them. they usually fully fits to my driving style and ability. I will rather spend my time with practicing driving than experimenting with settings that I don't fully understand anyway ;) It would be nice if you also capture and post a lap or two with essentials and pedal apps visible. :) it could help drivers like me to learn a lot.

    Adding you to the list! :)

    btw server with the new setup is already online!

    Lets start a discussion about the suspension settings!
    What I already found out is that you should go as low as possible! You will bottom out in a few turns, then raise it again a few mm.
    I'm running 11-8 at the moment.

    But before you change it have a look at the default camber and toe settings!
    They change drastically when you lower the height of the chassis! :confused:

    I think low as possible, a bit stiffer on the springs and a bit softer for the damper should work fine. Really flat track but a few bumpy parts.

    But for now the default suspension is fine! Just lower the car and adjust camber and toe so that they match the default value again on the car-status :)

    Video will be done today or tomorrow!

    Another setup challenge for us eh ;)
    I had a quick go on softs but struggled to keep them at a stable temp / pressure. Even for a low fuel 3 lap sprint, mediums seemed easier to predict and handle.

    There's clearly loads to learn about the effects of different suspension settings and how the various parameters interact and affect each other, but hey that's the idea isn't it? :geek::)

    :rolleyes:It' s those "replays" again. You just cannot trust them.
    Your replay shows a much quicker time.

    I just measured it manually with smartphone timer and it fits quite well.
    The lap on the video is 4 tenth faster but that was on softs with 3L fuel and a bit of luck :)
    But 0.4s is nothing due to the difficult corners around this layout. Most of my laps where around your lap times!
