USA time zone event





Welcome USA time some event.


This race is primarily aimed towards our members in the United-states, Canada, and South America so the race times are set for that zone. However, we welcome entrants from other timezones who would like to race at this time and help us to maximize our starting grid.
The only thing we ask is that priority be given to US/Canada and south american members since they often don't get the opportunity to race other events.

Unfortunately my new PC had to be returned to the shop (having a few niggly problems), so I am back to the old laptop again. Since I am getting desperate for some fun racing, I have just tried using the Laptop on line at Melbourne, but the results didn't look to promising, lost connection after about 7 mins and it looked terrible.
If I can manage to stay connected and don't look like being a danger on track, I'll try to join.

ok well if you want advices that i can do, on the differential, ok for the lock it depend on your gearbox setting, the shortter it is ( fast acceleration ) the lower your lock have to be, in the range of 5-15, vice versa, if you have a long gear ratio ( less acceleration ) for the lock go in the range of 15-30. as for the coast the higher it will be the more stable the car will be under heavy braking, i usually go in the range of 70-90. now pre-load, it affect how the car behave when releasing the brakes or when starting to apply the throttle, if the car have a bad transition from braking-acceleration decrease it, if the car is not responsive enough from braking-acceleration increase it.

another thing the gearbox setting affect all that so make sure its good and not locking the rear wheel when going down the gears.

when driving a FWD one way to get the car to turn is to use the throttle, with a RWD you can use that technic, what help the car to turn is to put more brake bias to the front, start by using 60-40 and move your way up slowly and increase the spring stifness at the front at the same time other wise to much weight will be on the front wheel and they will lockup and you won't turn.

hope that will help you, see you all tomorrow night :thumb:

that sucks Warren, whats the problem with the new pc ?
Intermittent problems with booting and shutting down. Once it wouldn't boot, and several times it freezes at the "windows is shutting down" screen. I have left it for more than half an hour and nothing happened.
