Morning, this is my public apology to Dave64, sorry Dave. I hope you understand it was not a deliberate take out move, the difference between ninth and tenth position really doesn't mean that much to me! I completely agree with the DSQ but wanted to make it clear, that's not how I race and it was purely a mistake on my part.

I would say it won't happen again, but I will make mistakes, I'll just try not to clean anyone else out next time!

thank you but i dont care were i finish i enjoy racing
but if you watch

https://youtu.be/CIxlKencSAg

you had enough room to go past im not the quickest on the track thats why 90% of the time its best to
let someone past.
and in the rules its says
CAR CONTACT

1. CAR CONTACT HAPPENS BUT ITS NOT ALLOWED AT ANYTIME.

2. CONTACTING OR BUMPING ANOTHER DRIVER CAUSING HIM TO LOSE A PLACE TO YOU, YOU MUST LET THAT DRIVER RETAIN HIS PLACE BY SLOWING DOWN AND LETTING HIM PASS.

3. IF YOU CAN PREVENT A CRASH OR GOING INTO SOMEONE BY DRIVING OFF THE CIRCUIT YOU MUST DO SO.

4. RETURNING TO THE TRACK, IT MUST BE DONE SLOWLY AND SAFELY TO AVOID COLLISIONS WITH ANY OTHER DRIVERS.

Yep completely agree, I had loads of room but in trying to correct the slide it spat me left into you, I for sure should have let you back past and will do so in future.

I'm not arguing and fully accept the punishment.

I did wonder what happened, saw your car spear off into the tyres! Was a shame as was hoping to have someone to chase for once instead of being the chased, maybe next time, was a good race though :)

I was going to suggest a BMW TC2 championship.

I think Edwin is putting another Championship together for the Wednesday night, but we still have Saturday and Sundays free for the bmw TC.

Edwin has asked me to host the new Wednesday championship he had suggested using the audi a1 but said he would leave it to me I said we should have a vote I will confirm with him what we are doing

If there is/was a vote i think i would prefer Group A again untill there's another tc2 car, just for the variety, unless they bring out the Audi and BMW DTM cars.

There's a commercial rights agreement with the Merc DTM so don't hold your breath for that any time soon.

I'm with maniac I would prefer group A again, maybe a vote on circuits as well, the next 3 races are all American circuits

Maniac_GB PS4
20-09-2015, 11:53
I didn't know that, good job i wasn't holding my breath or i'd probably die! Is there enough different liveries to go around for the BMW tc2 car? I haven't downloaded it yet so can't check.

choppermeir
20-09-2015, 15:25
I can't decide on the 320 tc after the e30 m3 it feels very sedate in comparison. A LOT faster though

Xx-Rickdj82-Xx
21-09-2015, 11:16
I don't mind season 2 with group a, I will confirm everything during the week we need to decide if we will carry on with it being team championship or not and I think we will all pick a track each but might have to look at it again after if we all pick the same track lol

Maniac_GB PS4
21-09-2015, 12:01
I don't mind the host/organiser picking what tracks etc, if they're going to do all the hard work then they should at least race where they want to, and i don't mind the U.S. tracks, kinda wish we were doing Sonoma as well. Maybe a constructors championship as well or instead of the team one?

That's really unfortunate as the car that hit you did seem to launch into you like a glitch/lag.
Both Technoguy and Rick wouldn't leave their braking that late either.

You can see me push Gviktorg wide which I apologise for. :(

Yup, destroyed my race too for sure. I think it was a lag, you could see the green merc disappeared and boom... reappeared just in front of your carů.

This is the incident that left my car damaged not sure what happened in front of me but two cars collided and I was unable to avoid contact with which ever car landed in front of me

choppermeir
22-09-2015, 07:23
I'd say lag, if you look in the rear view mirror the cars are no where near you then boom all of a sudden they appear, such a shame when this happens.

Sorry I couldn't make last night I have internet issues at the minute, at peak times it just cuts out every ten minutes

there was a big issue with lag lap 7 technoguy was off the track i passed him
next thing he was 20 secs in front.

Maniac_GB PS4
22-09-2015, 09:28
Yeah the 1st lap incident was a bit wierd, saw sprocket have a big lock up, made contact with Gvitkorg which i thought put him deep into the gravel and then he was pretty much along side me coming out of the corner, a lag related glitch and don't really think anyone is too blame. It was a real good race otherwise, battling in the pack for the first 4 or 5 laps was loads of fun, couldn't catch you though sprocket unless you made mistakes and then my FL tyre started going off!

Jestered301

With only 2 races left givktorg has both hands on the trophy.

28-09-2015, 20:13
I am absolutely f***ing livid with sky get through practice and qualifying just fine get into the race avoid the carnage and get to second and then the internet decides, nope that's enough racing for you I'm going to cut out.
Sky will be getting torn a new bottom hole tomorrow.
Oh well on a different note, I hope it was a good clean race for everyone and with a bit of luck I should be back in action for Laguna seca.

Nice one dave, i think techno might just be far enough ahead to hold on to 2nd, might be mathematically possible for one of us to catch him but one of us needs a win really! Well done and congrats to the champion gviktorg, he nailed this season and there's a still a race to go!

Hi Dave, new website looks good, can we change our team name to 'The Flying Turkeys' please? The new season looks like it going to be pretty good, with slightly longer races, 2x tyre wear and full weather then i think some pit stops and race strategy will come into play, looking forward to it even more now, respect to you Ford driver's too, i couldn't tame the beast!

Thanks rick but i think i'll stick with the ds4, i think i might be able to go a little quicker with a steering wheel etc, but i like the pick up and playability with the ds4, if i had a wheel I think i'd lose some of that as i don't have to worry about getting the wheel out and making sure its mounted properely or anything, with the ds4 i can just pick it up and turn it on and go.

Sorry for retiring early guys, just couldnt tame the cossie in the wet. contstantly on the edge of spinning or just over it.. Pretty weird cuz in the single player practice an hour before it handled much better and did acceptable mid 1.42 laps with exactly the same settings. Watched the whole race and it was quite fun to see different strategies. gviktorg was definately the fastest round the track, but with rick not stopping he couldnt make 1st. (shouldnt last 2 laps longer though). technoguy, also really fast but came in the pits 2 laps after another, (dont know why). anyways. nice to see a fresh competitive start of the touring cars, for me hopefully better luck next time.

Xx-Rickdj82-Xx
15-10-2015, 07:50
Great start to the season, really not sure how I did 25 laps without spinning but thankfully that help save my tires, gviktorg was unlucky not to win a lap more and he probably would of passed me as I was struggling for grip and he was flying, looking forward to the ginetta's tonight.

race done 3 or 4 laps and i was fine then all of a sudden it would spin and then i could not control it a bit strange but hey
it was a fun race again well done rick

I think i might have seen techno do this coming out of the bit-kurve esses onto the back straight, but it could have been lag, gavkel was lagging a bit i drove through his ghost car in practice, but i did'nt save the replay. It was a fun race in the rain though, tryed a 2 stop strategy but that did'nt work, my rear tyres were overheating a lot in light rain, i was hoping it was going to be raining a bit harder, my tyres would stay green in heavier rain when doing a bit of practice before the race but were pretty much red after a few laps in the light rain, nevermind though, good win Rick, i did'nt think that anyone would stay out, everyone will be copying you next race :)

it was spinning simulator for me. Not a fan of that Mercedes I miss my BMW a lot.

Can anyone throw any tips my way because I have found that I cannot brake anywhere near as late as the rest of you even when side by side I just cannot brake as late it just sends me off, tried peering my brake pressure but that doesn't work whereas if I leave it at 90 I'm having to use 3/4 max or it spins me out/locks up.

Are you mainly spinning it on the brakes? When i first drove the merc i thought it was terrible on the brakes, lots of snap oversteer if your too hard on the brakes, however i took a bit of brake pressure out and moved the brake bias forward and its lots better for me now, i think im running 94% b.p. and brake bias is 57% to the front. Try moving your brake bias to the front to stop the back coming round, but you will get more understeer in corners with heavy braking, the other thing to try is the brake mapping maybe, but i haven't played with that so don't know what it does!

choppermeir
22-10-2015, 14:32
Last night was Mainly spinning under hard braking, but for me it's the inability to brake anywhere near as late as everybody else, it may be worth me shaving a play with the brake mapping and brake sensitivity on my controller could be something maybe too high

Maniac_GB PS4
23-10-2015, 15:30
I don't think i can brake as late as everyone else either to be fair, i think to shorten your braking distance brake bias needs to be more 50/50 but that will make the back come around more!

Yeah was a good race last night, well done spru1138 for the win and a 1,2, i think too, i struggled with tyres towards the end, actually had a pit board to come in and change tyres on lap 23! I think the weather may have glitched out a bit though, in the lobby the forecast said 'rain' but in practice/race the weather said light rain and the forecast said light rain! Did that happen to anyone else?

That sounds like a good idea Rick, it might be worth you guys trying it out tonight. What do you think Dave?
We could then use it in the gulf's.

The last lap was a bit of fiasco mainly i think because spru ran out of fuel on the last lap but didn't have his mic on and i was trying not to overtake him on the last lap, unaware he had no fuel. On another note, i would like to see the TCC continue, i know we've had a few people pull out but we've also had some newcomers and we still had 10 people on the grid last night which is about the same as last season. I for one really appreciate all the hard work you put in to organising the races and the website Dave, which is a really cool touch i might add, i know it's probably a little bit stressful, so thank you for your hard work, i almost feel like i should get you a xmas pressie! it would be cool if the TCC would continue beyond this season but i would understand if you no longer wanted to continue it.

i know i will continue because i enjoy doing it, nice thought on the pressie but as i said i enjoy
putting these championships together so i dont need pressie's or donations thanks
im now doing a fifa 16 league which starts sunday 48 people signed up so im really excitied about that
and with that with have trophies too.

Yeah sorry about that I tried my best to conserve fuel for the last lap but I could have done with another ltr, keep up the good work Dave! Suggestion for next season!! Sprint races 1 track 2 races 15min long each, practice and qualifying as normal then 1st race pole order, 2nd race reverse finishing order, should make a interesting session.

i like the idea but how would you do it reverse finishing order ?

Maniac_GB PS4
26-11-2015, 18:55
I think the only way to do it would be to rig a qualifying session which might get complicated, it's a shame there's not more options for the host to make things like that easier, 48 people for fifa is really good, if only we had that many people it would be mental! And i'll know next time i see someone gracefully gliding to a halt on the warm down to give them a push :)

So quick question. I was online tonight in the e30 on hockenheim and well if I'm honest I was baffled by something, 2nd corner is a very tight right hand hairpin after a fairly long straight, I start braking at the 100 metre board and nearly over shoot. ABS was on and I had a brake pressure of 95% (bit high I know) the bmw next to me hit the brakes at the 50 meter board gets it stopped and around the corner no problems at all!. So I think maybe the pressure is too high and reduce it to 80%. Take 2 flying up to the 50 meter board brake button 3/4 in I go straight on and completely miss the corner. How on earth is this possible? I know I'm not the quickest by a long way but really 50 metres?.So I ask Does anyone have any tips on braking later really seems something I can't get a hold of, the knock on effect is I carry too much speed into the bend and lose time on exit or is it just a case of practise practise practise. Thank you

Yep that and sometimes it feels like I won't get it stopped in time so I squeeze the brake a little harder which really doesn't help ha ha

Spru1138
27-11-2015, 12:15
I use 60/40 break bias and 95% with abs and I can give my breaks full pasty! Have you looked at your break temp when you overshoot? Anything over 600 I think it is and you loose efficiency also your camber will effect your stopping distance

Spru1138
27-11-2015, 12:18
Also are you using auto box or manual? Use your gears to slow down faster!

I just tryed doing this in the merc, sounds impossible to me but I'm not using abs and not the latest on the brakes. If i brake at the 50m board im in the gravel, but i am braking roughly at about 80m where the green painted tarmac starts just after the 100m board and getting it stopped and round the corner. Don't really have any other tips for braking that i haven't already said in an earlier post or that someone else hasn't said, sorry. Have you seen the new track/car pack though, the old hockenheimring is back along with a classic Silverstone layout and an old french track Rouen :)

Always use manual I find the auto box really holds back quite badly and is all over the place on progressive bends. I haven't checked my brake temps but that could be a good point my ducts are not that open, also never even thought about camber rears is as straight as I can get it but the fronts have a fair bit (around 3.6 negative) was trying to combat some of the understeer. Must try and check them later using hockenheim as a test. Not sure if it was sprung or turnem behind me at the 2nd bend on Dubai but I was having to brake so early to get it round that 90 left. Thanks for the tips

If you search for my psn on Flickr but without the space "ManiacGB" you should be able to take a look. The plan was to take some from every race but like a noob I forgot to save some of the replays, but there's shots from Zolder, Ruapuna, Oulton Park and Silverstone, if you've got a few minutes spare go and take a look, hopefully you won't be disappointed :)

Yeah the Oulton Park replay your car was stuck on the grid, it made it hard to get screenshots of your car without making it too obvious that you were still on the grid! The Ruapuna replay one of the 1138 castrol mercs was stuck on the grid and a few cars were in the wrong positions to how the race actually went. Silverstone was a good replay, everyone made it off the grid and was in the correct positions. There was an update again today, unsure how big it was as my ps4 was on standby last night and downloaded it overnight, but the end of race timer has been extended for private lobbies now.
