I may just sit in the pits and wait for the weather then poodle round. 3 laps in 70 mins so 12th could be harder than first thought!!

I've done a few thousand miles round the green hell and I fight it too much, then it's bites and bites me until I'm left with not a straight panel nor sane fibre left within me. I appreciate you have to respect the beast but I am unable in the heat of battle so will unfortunately always surcome to the devil.

If fact I've talked my self out of it completely so will be washing the dog.
Don't invite me coz I'm not putting myself in a bad mood all Tuesday and most of Wednesday.
So may as well start now.
Congrats Pink on your well deserved win. :D
Thanks for all your hard work and look forward to September.

i race the track at least 3 laps a day ever since i got the game. its my favorite track. so winning this track would mean everything. :sorrow:

as we speak am trying to push for an even better lap time

Oh man, i love this track too, always a perfect fly for me!!!

Just done 1 single lap to see what range I'm in. Did a 6:52 straight away, which I'll be able to do consistently. Did screw up the Carousel though, lost about 2 seconds. All together if I can a flat out lap without lifting in certain sections and nailing the Carousel, I could probably do a 6:46/7

Try the 12C

Isn't the Z4 hella fast in the corners though? 12C does have fast straight line pace I suppose.

26-08-2015, 08:03
Try the 12C

That's what I'll be using I think. Can definitely go quicker in other cars (Aston Martin, M3, Z4), but I can't be as consistent as I can in the McLaren.

I'm going to give up going faster than 6:58ish. I'm not making any major mistakes (putting it in the barriers etc), so I think the only way I could go quicker is by putting in a lot more hours learning the track - and I just haven't got the time or patience for that at the moment.

improving the setup would help a lot as well, but that would take even more time! Think I'll just plod along by myself & hope people make a few mistakes if it rains etc. :(

Try the 12C

It's a personal thing, i guess, but the Ruf and Ginetta "feels right" for me, you know. Not the fastest cars maybe but i love it. The 12c feels like a rock for me, i can't explain, but i don't like it. Maybe i can't get faster because i'm in Dualshock...or maybe i suck!!! Who knows lol

I think you can actually go faster with the Dualshock.

Doing it with a wheel is exhausting :sleeping:

Is everyone setting times on low fuel?

Not sure how much difference it would make but I'm doing my times with fuel maxed out.

Please, give me something to cling onto haha :D

26-08-2015, 12:59
Yeah, the 1st carousel is an absolute b**tard though - can never seem to get round it properly without coming out high. Shakes my wheel to bits as well :(

Haha same problem here. Its so difficult to get right... :/



did they fix the weather system though.

Not sure, want to test it together later? Drive around the track for a few laps and see how the weather behaves :)



hahahahhahaah didn't want it to sound like that:highly_amused:

l was joking ;)



If fact I've talked my self out of it completely so will be washing the dog.

Come on now. Its going to be a great race, you shouldnt miss it :)



Try the 12C

l've found it to be awful, because it sits on the tarmac half of the time due to the track's many bumps and elevation changes.

Please, give me something to cling onto haha :D

Low fuel is very relative on this track :D
l went for 5 lap tanks, which are between 60 - 80 litres depending on the car.
l think the best way to improve your times, is to study the track and to learn its difficult parts inside out. :)
Have a few nemesis corners myself, which could ruin my race.

I´m doing my times with enough fuel to do around 4 laps. But i´m not a target to pursue because my lap times stinks :frown-new:

and by the way @Pink is it just random weather or random progressive weather(changing)
because if the weather is not random progressive you can do all 10 laps without stoping.

l think you have to stop either way because of tyre wear and fuel :)
But l'm not quite sure how random weather works, most likely as in the career which would be awful, because there it changes almost every lap. -.-

Btw, here's a video of my best lap around the Nordschleife for those who are interested :)
It was a pretty clean lap for the most part, missed some apexes here and there, but l was quite happy with it.



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOYNxdjTtk0


The thing about the Bentley is that its very difficult to keep on track and has a very nervous rear in some corners.
So l'm not 100% certain yet if it will be my final choice on Monday.
l have also tested the M3 which has crazy grip and great braking potential, but suffers in the topspeed department.
The McLaren wont be an option for me because of its low ride height.
So the Vantage, the R8, the SLS and the Z4 still need to be tested :)

By the look of that lap I'm losing almost all of my time in the 1st sector. Might have to change my setup a bit to give slightly more downforce.

It would be nice if you could give it slightly more downforce, indeed, but with most (if not all) of the GT3 cars you can only adjust to low - medium - high downforce :( At least with the front aero...

26-08-2015, 14:37
Going from Pinks lap, she made a few mistakes and lifted off in some places she didn't need to, yet was still that fast... I've got a feeling the cars with a better top speed will dominate here despite the tight sections. I enter the long straight about 1 second off Pink, so I lose about 4 or 5 seconds there because of the 12Cs top speed. May have to try the Bentley, because the Audi is too loose and the Aston and SLS have too much understeer

How is the McLaren that slow?
When l tried it, it was very close to the Bentley's topspeed.

Bentley: 277 km/h
McLaren: 271 km/h

Not even the BMW M3 loses 5 seconds on the straight, even though it only reaches 260 km/h with my setup... :confused:

RobMUFC1987
26-08-2015, 14:54
I've no idea. Top Speed is 170MPH and for some reason, it only goes to 166 on the straight no matter what Downforce I use. I think the straight is long enough that a 5MPH difference could cost 2 or 3 seconds without draft

l was actually surprised on how well l did in the first sector, since the first 8 - 10 corners are my weakness.
Hit a curb there too hard and you go into the barriers.

i tried improving my time got half a second faster. but i made a few big mistakes and kept overstepping a bit. got a 6.45.905. i actually thing the first sector is really your strength.
here is my lap.

Any curb will do that to be fair. Either the curbs or bumps will throw you off

Nah, they can't be. One of the websites I was looking at for my setup research, people at the top of the leaderboards were in the low to mid 6:30's. I'm 6-7 seconds slower so that's why I asked if my times were any good or not

It's helpful for me that all these times and videos were posted, it gives me a pretty good idea of where the bar is set and what I should work toward on a track I'm not so familiar with. Thank you everyone for sharing. :) And it's probably helpful for others too. :)

Turns out my crap lap times were mostly down to a bad setup (that'll teach me for following advice from the pCARS setup database!). Abandoned the setup I was using and went my own way. Managed to dial in a bit more mechanical grip & I'm now setting 6:52s consistently.

My original target was just to get sub-7 minutes, so given my limited knowledge of the track I'm really pleased with my progress & I'm actually looking forward to the race now! :). The 6:52s weren't mistake-free laps either, so I'm confident I can get below 6:50 with a bit more practice.

Oh, and my consistency was very good, never thought I'd manage to set lap times this close on such a long track!

A video would be nice ;)

Been trying to get a video uploaded the past two days but I've been experiencing a very frustrating issue with my wheel. I'd be half way or so through the flying lap and without any warning, I'm at the ps home screen with an error code. But the game is still running, so when I go back I'm in the barriers off track. I reset everything and tried again but this time it did it on my outlap..I tried adjusting FFB settings for the wheel and that just made things worse. Eventually I gave up and figured I could do it with my DS4. But I only managed a 6:46. So yeah I'm not very happy with the game right now, mainly because I have no way of proving those times and makes me look like a liar. :mad:

Had I known how good those times actually were and I wasn't in a rush to get to work, I would have at least had a screen. Lesson of the day, gonna have to do that from now on. No more posting lap times without a screen or vid for me.

Olá everyone, I am back from Portugal now, hope you are all well :)

Just read up on the last 4 races, sounds like they were all action-packed, close and good fun :D. Shame about bugs affecting some people though :(

I see you've all been busy practicing for tomorrow's race and setting some really good times too, I've done an initial 6:55 so far, but I'm sure that
will go down once the rustiness goes away :p

As for September, really liking the look of the race calendar and I think Pit-Stops are a good addition to the championship,
I'd like to compete every Sunday too Pink if possible, but I'm happy to be a reserve :)

Really looking forward to tomorrows race, should be a good one ;)

PS: l'm a Bourdais supporter though :Dindeed, it does seem a bit short. Bourdais gave Rahal a punt yesterday, and Graham was not happy at that at all lol. But yeah I've been supporting Dixon since I was a kid, which is when he first started driving for Chip. #9 was my favorite growing up and still is, but now that I'm older I have a little more understanding of driving and Scott is someone I'd want to model my driving after. His consistency and coolness make him a better "iceman" than Raikkonen.

31-08-2015, 19:24
Well that was something. At least I was able to complete almost 9 laps before my ps4 decided to crash. Pit stops are an absolute joke in this game. Completely over fueled my car. Cost me a good 45 seconds. Good thing they put the right soft tires on so the extra weight can really wear them out though. I was having a good battle for 5th with Diesel towards the end of the 9th lap when my game froze and subsequently turned black and I received an error message about my system crashing. Besides that it was actually a fun drive for the most part. The M3 is so fun to drive on this track with its amazing grip. Anyways, cheers to whoever won.

Massive shout-out to the game for robbing me of what was looking like a fairly comfortable win.

Yet more ridiculous cut track penalties when I haven't even left the f**king track and then giving me 10 litres less than I asked for in my pitstop, causing me to have to massively save fuel for the last 4 laps. Like it's not hard enough at this track without having to put up with that b***ocks.

Congrats to mantu :D - if I'm right in thinking that you didn't pit then I think you had the smartest strategy of all of us - it's obviously always better not to trust the pitstops on this game :mad:.

Very sorry to hear about the pitstops.
Same here, got no fuel during my first pitstop, didnt even notice it until l checked my tank a few laps later, so l had to pit again in Lap 8.
l guess no mandatory pitstops in September then -.- This game... seriously. Its so frustrating.

Besides from that l had an amazing race (after my problems with the sound bug and not being able to select the Bentley, that is).
From my perspective everything on track went cleanly. Had a fantastic battle with Linnuke for two laps and then with Mantu for 3 or 4 :)
After SuperBVB caught us l went for a stop because it was losing a lot of time in that sandwich :p

Congrats to Mantu on a great win - and as Chig said - the best strategy. :D
l was having a lot of fun, though l'm a bit disappointed in the game and how it ruined so many people's races :(

PS: Was surprised to see you in 1st Chig after l was 2nd for a short time ;)
Was expecting Matungwa there tbh. Nice 3rd!

Diesel98
31-08-2015, 19:51
Well that was interesting! :rolleyes:

Started P4, and was running in P3 for most of lap 1 until I had my usual every race lag, meaning ghost cars were hitting me off track and I fell down to P5.
From then until Lap 6, I was engaged in a close battle with Linnuke, with ColdMetal not far behind us two either when I decided to make my Pitstop. Now the game refueled my car correctly, however, even though I told it to change tires to Softs, it kept me on the one's before my stop, meaning I had to do another lap on completely worn tires, next time I pitted, it changed correctly. Plus, like Chig, I had really bizarre cut track penalties throughout the race, losing me even more time. :mad:
I was shaping up to have a nice battle with ColdMetal towards the end, unfortunate that your PS4 froze dude, so in the end I took a lonely 5th.
Congrats to Mantu on the win, impressed that you manged to finish without stopping, great strategy! :D

P.S: Linnuke tells me that he hit a invisible object and ended up floating over everything on Lap 8 not far after the first long straight, too many goddamn BUGS!!! :mad:

Thats the current state of the game unfortunately.

On the surface it plays and looks nicely, but when u dig a bit, you find many (little) problems that ruin the experience.

Well done to mantu tonight really good win fair play on doing it with no pitstops didn't know it could be done. I decided to stop after 4 laps a lot of 5 sec penalty's and spins was really wishing this track wouldn't come up. Watched the rest of the race some good battles between pink and mantu for 2nd and 3rd and then between super b and mantu for first after chig had a spin I think.

Thank you everyone! :D I really enjoyed the race! Running many laps in p2, had a good battle with pink. Moved up to p1 when others pitted. With full tank I was able to do 10 laps, but soft tyres lasted only 8 laps before the front left and rear left gave up.. So last 2 laps were driving on ice pretty much..
It sucks to see so many drivers dnf. :(

FFS. Well if it's any consolation Linnuke, apparently they have fixed the loss of FFB when you hit one of these landmines, so if your car had in fact landed at least you would have been able to continue. Apparently we should be satisfied with that. :(


PS: Was surprised to see you in 1st Chig after l was 2nd for a short time ;)
Was expecting Matungwa there tbh. Nice 3rd!

Yep, was having a very enjoyable race. Managed to nail the best lap I've ever done on this track to get pole position - almost 3 seconds quicker than I've ever done before.

Then slowly built up a 10 second gap at the front until the game started to have its fun with me. Literally lost count of how many unnecessary 5 second penalties I got - it was easily double figures. :(.

Would've been very happy with 3rd place before the race, but after getting pole & being 10 seconds clear 3rd just feels like a defeat:(.

Diesel and I were about 10 seconds behind you when that happened. I saw your dot on my map off the circuit, I thought you might have pulled a Le Mans on us and flew off in the woods lol
