I've only been sim racing properly for about 3 days now and I have mostly been practicing on Palm Springs RoadCourse A using the Bentley Continental GT3 racecar. My lap times started off poor I was doing 1:32's after my 1st day I started doing 1:25/1:26, I decided I was ready to race and set difficulty to 87% I came 3rd place due to the AI punting me when I lapped him. I decided to challenge myself further and cranked the difficulty up to 120% to my horror the AI were doing 1:21/1:22 lap times, I was being destroyed. I went back to practicing and tried everything to narrow down my lap times but was failing to get better than 1:25, by fluke I managed 1:24 once. I came up with a plan and pressed I-Key and let the AI take control of my vehicle as I watched to see where they broke and turned in and accelerated, I regained control of the car but failed to replicate the AI's abilities, even after hours of trying, best I ended up with was a 1:24.747. Having gave it my all and still failing to get my lap times nearer to 1:22's the fun of having a rig, wheel and pedals turned into anger for spending so much money and being a utter failure. Sooo I was just wandering what sought of lap times do you guys get around there, and is it normal to be this bad for my first week of simming? Also i run default setup, maybe thats part of the issue? Was wandering if anyone could share there setups for the track please? Thank you! - Looking forward to your answers and help.
