    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.

    It's probably entirely the wrong car for all those straights, but let's pretend it's a season...

    Eugene did you ever manage to tame the 330's high-speed push?

    Not really, more aggressive diff settings and more camber help, but in the esses (turn 2 and 3) you just have to modulate the throttle and transition very carefully. It helps, but still going to push. I run brake bias at 55 as well.

    Well, can take 3 flat out if you get the right line out of 2, but yes - t3 is where push gets annoying. Rest of the track is fine. I guess more rake might do something.

    Put me down as a maybe. Porsche, of course, because Porsches are for Courses. Or, you can lead a Porsche to water but you can't make it...ummm...turn, or something.

    Question please :
    Could we share our car settings here ?
    I ask this question because i just tried this track yesterday for the first time, and started working on the car settings (for the porsche).

    In fact, i'm very interested in all of your car settings concerning this old 3 ladies (with GT40).
    I know there is a "setup market" addon, but, with few exceptions, there is only very old car settings there, mosty for previous version of AC.

    I know settings are "personnal" and depends on your way of driving, but I would appreciate a lot some share about it... cause i'm a very curious guy ! :rolleyes:
    My settings for the porsche 908 LH on this track :
    http://okofree.free.fr/AC/watkins_glen_908LH_cladecq.rar
    erased

    For the historical part (and for the fun), here is the wiki for the 6 hours of Watkins Glen
    You can see GT40 won the 1968 edition and the Porsche 908/2 won the 1969.
    The GT40 we have in assetto is maybe the real one winning the 1968 !
    Because it's the same driver (Ickx) who won the Le Mans 68 and 69 with the same car (first time the same car won Le mans twice).
    But the 908/2 is quite différent from the LH...
    Ferrari won in 1972, with a 312 PB, very different from the 330 P4.
    So... you are not supposed to win with a 330 P4, remember that ! :laugh:
