Is there any possibility that you guys will be holding any weekend leagues. I would love to join the Formula Gulfs & soon to be Formula C's but over here in the states a midweek league just won't work for most of us.

It says that the site administrator has to approve me first.

Can't get to any info. Not sure what to prepare for. I'll try to prepare for week 1 trying real tire wear and 28 laps. Hopefully that's what it is. Plus weather. I'll be checking in to see what's up.
I don't know when to show up yet.

Oops. I thought this started tomorrow on 10th
Please fill me in though.

It is 28 laps, tyre wear is x2, full damage no ABS or TC but allowed SC.
30 min practice 30 min quali.
Lobby usually opens at 7:50pm
I'll invite you if there's any delay. Send me a FR :cool:

Got in to site. Thanks.
2 questions?
Having stability control on in races? But no other aids? Why?
Are you giving an advantage to controller users in the wet? Or is that the result? Seems like it would be huge advantage in weather.

The rain slots? How will they be set up for session? Light cloud in slot 1 and rain in slot 2?
I want to make sure I avoid pit stop mistake since I don't use them often enough to know how they work.

Also. A region specific start time is needed. I see 9:05 pm? But in what time zone?
I'm US west here. (Pacific)

just fair,clean and knowledgeable drivers.

2 - weather will be told on the morning of the race i will post here the weather.

Oops. I prepared for this wrong. Better luck next time I guess. For the record. I don't think real time would have made it to sun down with a 2:10 start.
Haha
Might want to check your time progressions next time.
Didn't quite run what's posted below.
i think you ran at least double time.
I could have made those tires last. But didn't have enough fuel.
Was setup for a pit stop, but those didn't happen.

Pretty sure I'm the only one who didn't have a full fuel load and full stint.
Who knew, not me.

Im sorry. Must mention I did enjoy being around all the racers there and respect them. All were cool and clean.
Just frustrated I wasn't on same page as everyone else. And therefor wasn't competitive after my pit.
Was great before that.

Edit: I've also had a re run of events to confirm that YES. You did run 2x tire progression. Sunset was not there in real progression I simulated later.
So that was inaccurate compared to post.
Kinda shady.
Temps are very important as we can tell now.
And holding back these details is not fair.
Unless I'm invited to the setups you do before, don't see a point continuing.

I did see you simulate your session before event

I have been frustrated by not going for full fuel or tyres never getting up to temperature so I feel your pain.
This is only week 1 so all is not lost. You could of rejoined after pitting and made the best of a bad job.
You posted some quick times so this shouldn't dishearten you?
I think a USA October will never reflect a UK October as the sun sets a lot earlier over here this time of year.
Time progression on real or x2 shouldn't be a million miles from each other.
In the Formula Gulf we also do tyre wear is x4 and some don't even put then.
Rain will only ever come when the real weather update dictates at start of day.
All of us never cheat or try silly tricks to catch other drivers out.
We don't roll like that.
Silverstone GP next Monday. See you then mate?

Substantial difference between 2x and real time.
As I finish up this test as I'm typing. (Actually my son is in rig testing)
It just now dropped below 90 halfway through race.

It was 88 in garage at one point before our race. So yeah.
My guess is that it makes for a lot cleaner end with the reduced temps.

My preference is to put the info out there. Even if you did invite me to pre race check day of. Not sure I want to stint back to back. Don't want to be in my cockpit that long.

Please post them up 12-24 hours in advance.

At the very least. It should be included in the thread or some place.

Weather is huge. And if you ain't talking much about it. Your doing it wrong.

If your holding it back to last minute. Or making sudden substantial changes. It's borderline cheating IMO.

Race day should be a known quantity for all involved. You need to say it's going to be like a or b being the weather tomorrow guys. And we get a or b. Not all the sudden c with substantial drop in temps you weren't accounting for.

Dave has never given a test session prior to race so all our preparation is done alone with an amount of blindness.
Last season after 3 hours of testing at Barcelona. My tyres wouldn't do more than 5 laps without looking like a Christmas tree.
I just had to adjust in practice and quali and hope for the best.
After all that I jumped the start, spun off 3 times and limped home 8th.
Oh well it's only a game and I will try harder next week.

As long as you acknowledge that the info is paramount. And needs to be out there. As well as accurate.
I think that's fair.
Apologize again.
But honestly. It's not legit if you don't choose a weather service and a schedule to release the forecasts. So what if they are not accurate day of. At least they were consistent for all.
I know today's wasn't. My forecast said it rained at snetterton today. But not in our race.
Get it straight. And get it out there right. 6-12 hours early minimum.
I can live with it might be two slots like this. Or two slots like this. But it will be one of those two.

And rain is gonna be huge. Cause no one is full stunting on those. Those are gone be two to maybe even four stoppers depending.
It'll be a joke at that point if your not letting people in on weather testing.
I know today was for me.

I tried to post this in PM to Dave but I don't think it worked (it's not in my sent items), so I'll just post it here.

I had a coming together with Ryan in the race. I wasn't too bothered at the time because I wasn't entirely sure what happened. I messed up at turn 2, defended my position succesfully and then he ended up in my blind spot all the way down to the bridge. I know I was off the racing line but I did this to give him ample space - I knew he was there because the position timers were telling me he was -0.1xx behind me. This is my view (an actual screen grab of what I was doing at the time, looking around ect). Not sure what else I could have done.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_L2jinhncPk

After the race I had a look just to see what actually happened. What I see (your milage may vary) is that he had full sight of me but turned into me anyway. I just can't understand where he was expecting to go. IMO, he should have yielded and given me space considering I had over a car length on him going into the braking zone. Here is his view:

Welcome to my blocked list which now has 5 including you.

Stability control is a form of traction control. Basically computerize the breaking function and does it for you so you don't have to worry about locking up and scrubbing your breaks.
Which is exactly where you're going to destroy your tires the most, under breaking mistakes.
It basically does all your 2 foot breaking for you.
Believe. Me. I learned what it can do. No doubt everyone's running it. Especially in rain.
I learned to put a toggle switch on the keyboard for it.
So thanks for that at least. I did learn here.
Even if I also learned it's a waste to prepare for someone else's league if they won't tell you what's up.
Because There's probably a reason they won't be up front about track conditions.
But scaling the race to double progression or more so the tires will cool off late in your stint?.
Just so dirty. And your the only one who knows that? Get real. And wear that cheater badge with honor.
Some people carry "cheat to win" with pride and they are way less obvious than you.

Really sad that you can't just include people in a reasonable discussion about fairness
But what do you expect from someone who runs the league out of sync with his own rules in the first week.
You think anyone wonders why you won't set in stone the events nor communicate any good info on what to expect?
Duh

Good thing i wasn't racing last night, when would i have been called a cheat the 1st time lapping you or the 2nd.

Btw I race with all assists off, you can turn them off in main options menu so even racing with dave i get no stability control.
If it bothered you that much why not just do that.

Thx for earlier messages guys, i will be on tonight.

Just wanted to say guys that I really enjoyed last night. It was my first excursion into league racing on P.Cars and it was a lot of fun.

I had a good few tussles with Bogg at the beginning, CountingFrames in the middle and Rick at the end (gutted I couldn't hold on to 3rd). I'm not sure If I had damage or if I was rattled but my car seemed less sturdy under braking and I couldn't carry speed through corners. Shame about the coming together with Ryan but these things do happen and in fairness, he did apologise after the event.

Bring on Silverstone!

TicTac - sorry for your loss mate.

Glad you enjoyed it blues. I have to confess I don't remember any tussles with you. My memory is full of a rear view if Ryan. I was about a foot behind him for the first 8 laps or so. When I finally made my move to overtake I lost sight of him, stayed as wide as I could to avoid contact, and stupidly ended up on the grass. I went 3rd to 6th. The worst thing is I'm pretty sure he let off to allow me a clean overtake, I just didn't see until I was on the grass.
I noticed you didn't have your map on in the video ElectricBlues. I think it's well worth having it on to help when people are in your blind spot. If I'd have glanced at mine I would have seen Ryan had dropped back and I didn't have to stay wide

Dave - quick question on the next track (before I spend time on practice / setup). The website says Silverstone GP 26 laps. Lap times in Rookie around there are 02:15.xxx, which is roughly a minute per lap longer than Snetterton 200 but only 2 less laps.

Is this right? Seems like a long race to me!

dave64
13-10-2015, 19:56
yes it is we wanted longer races

ElectricBlues85
13-10-2015, 20:11

OK, sounds good. Thought it was worth while checking before I put the hours into it :)

Hi Frames, Dave post weather morning before race. It usually mirrors real time.
Follow his link and log in with your email and password.
After Snetterton 200 it's Silverstone GP, Hockenheim national then Sikatto GP

Haha. He said "usually" Hmm

All I did was ask for service and I get kicked.
That's ok
Because

CountingFrames
13-10-2015, 23:01
answer 1 - i dont think any of our drivers have advantage controller or wheel users
just fair,clean and knowledgeable drivers.

2 - weather will be told on the morning of the race i will post here the weather.

3-9.05pm uk time

thanks and enjoy the season


Sprocket or Dave had already lined up the event outside of rules parameters on page 2.
9:05 huh? That's not what's posted for league rules. Hmm

Running a league with 2x tire wear to make people pit? Then deliberately set up race 1 as a no stopper and shorter distance than rest of series? And change the weather outside of normal? Hmm

You guys are cute trying to drop info, but be inaccurate up front so as to cover yourselves when you switch it up later.
No doubt you had dialed in at 1-9 pm already. And selected your setups two days before.
You wanted that cooling and a sunset. No problem. Made for nice racing. For those that you decided to include.
Big difference in the way you responded to others. Was begging for details on page two, but you won't share much.
Euros hate Americans. It's known. Cheat us if it makes you feel better about yourselves.
But I call BS

At the end of the day. You are kicking me because you would rather do that than share with me the service you are using so I can get on same page as rest as league.
I did say that was all I wanted and needed and I would be fine.

But you think talking about the weather is a problem?

Hmm
Whatever boss ecclestone.

BS

This is the first time I ever raced with these guys and I'm certainly not part of any clique that you referred to earlier. The temperatures & time progression took me a little by surprise but I just adapted to it and made the most of it. I can't help but think this all could have worked out better if your first words after the race weren't accusations of cheating. Maybe ask a non-loaded question about the time progression next time.

You might have misunderstood and you go onto the 2nd race understanding things better. The lobby might have had an error with the time progression. Either of those two things are fine, it happens but as soon as you mentioned 'cheating' this was only going to end one way & all of this nonsense could have been avoided.

It's a shame really because I enjoyed racing with you. Respectful in your driving but clinical. I got out of shape under the bridge and left a car width + 1mm at the apex you went through the gap. Ballsy move, It was a shame to see you going in the pits a few laps later.

You can whine all you like, but the only reason you were the only one to pit is because you were the only one practising in summer. You said yourself you had no idea you could change the date in practice. You seem not to mention this too often in the last few pages. If you'd have practiced on the right race date you'd have made the same decision as everyone else, there was no need to pit. The 2x time progression made no difference to your decision to pit, whether it was a massive conspiracy to alienate you or not.

CountingFrames
14-10-2015, 00:27
I knew the progression was not accurate. You stated it days beforehand you were running out of step with rules.
I just missed it. Noticed it in race for sure.
Can live with week 1's result. Even if shady and not inline with what was posted.
Can't deal with not knowing what your gonna do in race 2..............again

The weather is your thing/baby and you don't want to share. Whatever.
I'm not ignorant as to why someone would do that. To gain an advantage over others.
As league goes on and rain becomes more prevalent, it will get worse and worse since its scripted.
Get real.

And racing with bog was fun. I did enjoy that. Made a mistake with SC and turned it off on accident. Had to fight back. Enjoyed it.
But Not the lack of details and feeling I'm pulling teeth to get answers about what to expect. Then getting inaccurate info anyway.
Way too transparent.

I feel you and agree. thanks for compliment.
But it's gonna happen all over again in week two anyway when rain comes. Or doesn't. Who knows. Only Dave
It's gonna be his game, his rules, his way.

Without even the courtesy of sharing the weather service you use? That's the kicker.
That's the cheating.

Not race 1. He says his mistake was an accident. I'll have to believe him. But that's hard to do when he knowingly stepped outside his rules by plan days before. And knowingly didn't share the info.
You trust them if you want. Just know it's gonna come down to pit choices. And your not gonna have that inside knowledge before hand.

I had completely cooled off until I realized he ran wrong progression. On purpose.
That combined with the CONTINUED lack of info set a tone I wanted no part of.
Cause it's not legit.

Share your weather service. That's all I was asking. It's important to prep.
If you can't acknowledge that. Your a cheat.

Not had to much practice but when i have i've been in mid/high 15's
So i reckon 15/16's is probably about race pace times.

Can't recall if it was Ryan or Rick, that got caught by my spinning out. Nothing i could do to recover the spin. So apologies for that.

Really crappy place to happen too at the chicane just after pit entrance.

ElectricBlues85
19-10-2015, 21:02
I can't believe what just happened.

I was about to deliver a strategic masterclass and do no stops thanks to high tyre pressure / low temps. I had enough rubber to get to the end and come 3rd and then I had a phantom button press (The PS button) on my wheel and it took me back to the PS dashboard. By time I got the game screen back up I'd stacked it into the tyre wall on the outside of Copse and my car was a write off. I don't think I took Pexy out in the process but I quite easily could have done.

Two hours of my life I won't get back....Furious isn't the word!
