Hi There,

Please Help!!6

I'm trying to set a good fast lap on the SMS-R Silverstone GP Network event.
Now I want to change the "Final Drive" in Gearing but it is lockt and other players can change it as I watched viedos from this event and they are in totaly diffrent gears then I'm.
This is very strange and frustrating as I cant get much faster without this option..

Please Help!!

I haven't been able to change the final drive either. And the individual gears only change in huge steps so as to only change one gear to another i.e. make 2nd as short as 1st - which makes no practical difference.

It would definitely be nice to have shorter gears to use all 6 gears. Are you sure others have been able to change this? Have you seen anyone getting into 6th down hangar straight for example?

IRL most of the GT3 cars you cannot change Final Drive.

the bulk of the setup steps are intended and realistic this way. Real teams and racers don't have micro choices usually. For the gearing alot of the cars just don't have many, or no, gearing options in reality.Sometimes just the final drive.. Sometimes it's limited by the rules. We set it up to mirror as close as we could to real life.

@choupolo

this is the video I was talking about..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKlUHFqHtTE
I ast TheKie25 as well and this is his anwer..he ist currently 5th or 4th place so I guess we are talking to a real pro...;)

From Thekie25:
"It is not the final gear you change as that is locked in real life just lower each gear down 1 click to the left basically gets rid of 1st gear. Im still messing with setup as I'm on a 58.3 now but I know a 57 is in there somewhere, big advice that helped me was shifting the weight to the front the car helped allot."

I will try it now see what I can get out of it..so fare I got a 2:02.100 too slow...:)

I was looking for a video like that, thanks! Kie is pretty fast.

About the gears - I've tried what he suggested to click every gear down one to get rid of 1st, but with all the ratios basically the same, you're just relabelling the gears. From the video I can tell that it has made no difference to acceleration or top speeds down each straight - I am hitting the same points in each gear as he does. So I don't think that's the difference.

He is however able to turn through sharp corners much more effectively than I can, and it's interesting that he suggests to move weight forward. I decided to move the weight completely to the back, which helped with acceleration out of corners. Maybe I should try the opposite!

Btw, I was unable to get below 2:02 for ages!
