Hey guys, I have tried just about everything I can think of, and I am literally 5 seconds off of pole position pace with this kind of lap. I am pretty consistent with this as well - 1:39.5 is a very typical time for me when hotlapping at Shanghai. I'm looking for some helpful criticism here because I'm about at my wit's end trying to improve on my time. I will always keep practicing, but I've just hit a rut now for a while on this circuit. I have studied as many onboard laps as I can find, trying to replicate the braking points and turn in's, and pole position pace is generally in the 1:34:4xx range. How can I possibly be 5 seconds off? I understand that they had TC for a number of years, and if KERS or DRS is available in rFactor I also don't know how to map it to my wheel, so maybe it's possible that I'm losing this time due to not having those at my disposal. In any case, I would appreciate any help that the experienced F1 sim-drivers here may be able to offer. If anyone is ever up for a practice, give me a shout as well.
