View Full Version : Unbalanced classes

I tried to recreate the 24h Daytona with a multi class race.
So I had LMP2, LMP3 (to simulate the Chevy prototype class), GTE and GT3.
Well these are the top 5 after 1 hour qualifying:

1. LMP3 1.39.640
2. GTE 1.39.700
3. LMP2 1.39.820
4. LMP2 1.39.940
5. GT3 1.39.980

As you can see the classes itself are not balanced in terms of speed to eachother which is quite disappointing and this takes the fun out of the whole multi class race.
I don't know about other tracks, maybe some of you can report the same?

LMP3 and GTE times IRL have been very comparable, same with GTE and GT3.

IRL series that run multiclass have some built-in BoP to create some performance gaps between the classes, whether that be minimum weights, turbo boost ratios or air restrictors.

LMP2 should be qualifying in front, but the other 3 classes will be very close. I wish (read: hope) that there is some user controlled BoP implemented when setting up multiclass races to create some gaps in the cars.

At Le Mans this year, the GTE-Pro cars were running in the 3:50s (Qualifying) range.
The LMP3 cars in the Michelin Le Mans cup race were running the same.

In face the best GTE time was 3:50.8 and LMP3 was 3:50.2

24h of Spa GT3 pole times were very close to the GTE-Am times at the FIA WEC 6h of Spa.

2:17's for GT3 and 2:16/2:17 for GTE-Am.

There are air restrictors, but you can't implement restrictions on AI controlled cars so there is no way to balance the different classes to ensure their are big enough time differences so you don't have what OP had to my knowledge.

Thanks for that precise information. Additionaly we have the problem that the LMP2 used in PCars 2 is still the 2016 and before versions and not the actual 2017 LMP2 or DPI versions unfortunately which are quite a lot faster in RL too.

That's disappointing as Multi Car racing (offline) was a big draw for me. I only purchased yesterday so not had much time to test it out. Hopefully there will be some official acknowledgement and added to the 'snag' list.

I had the same problem. Posted in another thread http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?51832-On-the-topic-of-AI&p=1363582&viewfull=1#post1363582
