  8. Will try to make this one. Any tip on how to drive these cars though. Bought the Civic but found out on Redbullring it has the most amazing snap oversteer if you even consider nudging the brake during turnin. Is all cars like this or is it specific for the Civic? I have WTCC 2013 not sure how close the physics are on the old models if I can use them as reference.

  9. I find the Civic worst as far as snap oversteer goes, only tip I have is do your braking in a straight line, balance throttle during turning.

    Too bad Luca, because we had a really great race.

    Sadly, I am too tired to stand another practice and qualy to 2nd race, so I quit with racing pleasure for tonight. It was great as I said, close battles, fast and fair opponents, some touches bettween us and I just hope, Saturday´s race at the same time/same place will be more populated, because the game, cars and guys on server are just the best pack :)

    Good nice nights racing again today folks, thanks again Kjell for arranging.
    Had some good times, enjoyed my race against Matej (good talking to you mate..) but, as usual, dropped the ball at the chicane. Strange start too, when the lights went red i pulled two gears and just managed to get away in front.
    Race 2, started from pole, did the opposite and forgot to engage a gear!!!! Dropped to the back and then managed to get 2 time penalties within the first minute..... 10 seconds down on lap one :( Sort of lost interest after that... kind of come to the conclusion i really, really dont like Sonoma!

    Thanks again all, enjoyed it.

    Good race yesterday, pity I totally screwed it up. Race 1 I was more off track than on, Race 2 was way better for me, found my tempo and line, but then that "beloved" chicane started dictating who is the boss and I went there few times out. Very frustrating part of track. But Lasse showed us it is possible to drive fast and avoid mistakes, so again, my problem is located somewhere between wheel and chair... :thumbsdown:
    You guys are very fast and clean, very challenging to me. I have to train a lot. :thumbsup:

    OT: is there some way or ethusiasm (maybe R3E MP is not supporting that) to put here (under every race session) results? I'm interested in all lap-times of each other, sector-times also. But maybe not everybody wants his times to be shown publicly, so take it as a point for discussion. :)
     
  18. The game sadly does not support getting much data yet, they are working on it so at some point we'll be able to extract things like starting grids, finishing positions, lap times, off tracks etc, who knows what and when though. :)
    Though, it's against he spirit of club racing to discuss laptimes and finishing positions, club races are about having fun not being fast, so we will probably not use this specifically for club races.
    League races on the other hand will make use of such features.
