Holy crap, this combination is quite a rush! This race should be fun. Would the track grip preset "Slow" be close to 92%?

Backing out of this. Apparently need to work on AC clutch control, damaging transmission too much to use manual on this car

nevermind, fixed now maybe was my diff setup or something. weird!

It's a really fun combination... when you can keep it on the track. This car feels like it's going to lift off and take to the sky at any moment the way I drive, sadly. A couple of pitstops into the race due to losing control at really stupid moments resulted in me working on finishing my first lap because the track is bugged, so I bailed out.

I mentioned to someone else on TS that there was a way to edit where the damage indicator on the screen is and that I'd post where to find such a thing. You can find the file here:

[SteamInstallPath]\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\cfg\damage_display.ini

You'll want to adjust the POSITION_X and DISTANCE_FROM_CENTER_Y values to your desired coordinates. If you exit a race session back to the menu application you can edit this file, save it, and then start up another race session to see your changes.

The other values in the file allow you to adjust the threshold of when the thing appears (MAX_DAMAGE_KMH) and how long before a non-red damage indication event will cause the indicator to disappear again (TIME).

Enjoy the rest of the race, gents!

Well done guys, this combo is quite demanding but lots of fun.

Edit: after my wall brush that left me with a 30kph deficit, I had an emergency to attend. Chris well done mate it was fun battling you, bad luck Geof would have been nice to have you up there as well. I think I might have been down on downforce...
