I'm on my Windows 10 rig today and, unfortunately, it hasn't got the 5GB patch yet. I'll have a crack at this in a bit. I am the very definition of 'slow' so the rest of you should feel good once you see my time.
I'll put my Steam and RaceRoom links here so we can start adding eachother on the various friend lists:
If I remember well I just tampered with minimal things: probably rear wing, rear ARB and height. That's it. Well I'll post the screenshot later anyway so we can all exchange some hints/infos. It's also a good way to get a better knowledge of "what does this and what does that"... Definitely I'd love to better understand this, as to me it's the most interesting part under the strategy aspect of a race: turns/trajectories interpretation & track analysis to find out what can be a winning choice is thrilling!
Would this be a good idea for a sticky (well it would involve a new thread), so people could post up their own particular favourite car/track combo for challenges? I`m particularly partial to the Judd V8 at Lakeview (reverse), probably because it`s the only challenge where I`m in the top 100 . I suppose I`ll have to get out of amateur mode as well...
Never raced brands Hatch before, managed a 49 on the first few laps, then got down to 48.8. I hope I can knock a sec off of it, but the reality now is a tenth here or there. Probably get to 48 even or so...hope I can do better! I guess clearly the last and first turn will best help your time. I can't get into turn one well with speed....if I do, I think I might be able to really do ok.
Here's my current setup.
Wing a bit higher, stiffen Rear ARB, reduced toe-in front (I think this actually influenced negatively on my timings), I've modified bump and rebound without knowing anything about them so I don't know if I did something right, increased negative camber front/rear, lower the ride height F/R, 2nd gear 1 click down, final drive 1 click down. Differential as seen below.
I've put my hands in there without knowing if I was doing good or wrong. For sure I could feel better the car in the turns when I adjusted the rear ARB... other than that... mystery!
Oh, improved my time: now it's 47:659
Also, any reason why this challenge combo was suggested instead of one of the R3E competitions? With the R3E competitions like the WTCC cars on Hungaroring you can filter by friends for an immediate comparison, no need to report your time.
