    Hey, warhammer can only run Fridays and weekends so we can jam on his thread a little.

    Stay close to the curbing. Depending on your speed you can start feathering the accelerator here.

    Latest setup which I ran the 1:40.371 with. In my settings I also changed TC and ABS to High, sorry I just found everything too touchy on low. This RBR track turned out to be a lot tougher than Hockenheim which is opposite of my initial AI testing. I think cpcdem is right it is just weird. You can see that in the video where the poor BMW starts 3rd and finishes 3rd and all his weird spins in the middle laps of the race. I found it best to stay close to the curbs if not on them to avoid some of the weirdness. Also turn 9 turns out to be a lot trickier than I thought, as though there is something in the track on turn in that can send you out of control so practice your safest entry on turn 9. Many times I locked the rears as the car seemed to get really light here. At turn10 you can see that the BMW driver on a few laps tried to force his car inside causing him to countersteer to save it. Just apex and let the car ease over to the left curbing.

    Tire pressures. I haven't adjusted these much. At race start pressures are in the 24s. At the end of 4 laps they are in the high 26s. It will kind of depend on the race date and cloud cover you select but you will need to adjust the pressures.

    The BMWs appear slower. I just ran quick enough to keep a decent gap.

    Just to get an idea I ran a few laps in the Cayman. Needs some work. Brake lock ups, for some reason balance was at 47/53. The car wasn't very stable in the high speed turns, 6 and 7.

    Moved balance forward. The car is pretty quick, mostly trying to cope with my disabilities. Anyway my best lap ever but a Ginetta right behind.

    Piggybacking on this thread to ask about GT4 tires and track temps. I’m running a GT4 race at Donington National in spring with track temps of 95f (35c) Based on this post:

    http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/sho...=1#post1482399

    I would assume that track temps are high enough to run Hards, but watching my temps over a few laps it looks like my left rear will hit the mid/low 80s. Rarely get to 80 on my left front, and the other two are low 70s. Sofas seem to do a lot better, but I wanted to see others experience? Do GT4s just need higher track temps to run hards?

    If you are following warhammer's progress you can see he was almost able to get use out of the Soft tires at Zhuhai at track temps of 145 where the tires seemed to start to really go off after 6 laps. So based on that your 95 track temps at Donington would seem ok for soft tires. I had to run Hards at Red Bull Ring with track temperatures at 103. It's mostly tire wear, if you run tire wear off you may be good on softs at Donington.

    Maybe others will be able to add to this.

    Are you on PC? What GT4 are you using?

    Hey, made a run at Donington. Tried Hard tires, would need a lot of setup changes to get them working. Softs are good.

    Focus on pressures instead of worrying about temps on this track.

    Was using the Aston by had similar results on other cars too. I don’t have a good sense of tire wear on those indicators. Over how long of a race did you get that wear? I’ve been running 30 min timed races.

    I’m on PC with authentic tire wear

    Sorry, just 2 laps, warhammer only runs 10 lap races, so less than 18 minutes. Sorry, I doubt the Softs will last well after 30 minutes so you are possibly stuck with Hards. There could only be about 70% left on Softs if wear rates don't increase more dramatically. I enlarged the tire wear indicator and came up with approximately 1/16(0.0625) of wear and the total height was 2.750. So, around 8/16ths or half inch of wear over 30 minutes. I wasn't driving real hard and wear tends to increase with hard driving.

    Just run 5 laps on Softs and see how you do for wear.
    Ok, ran 9 laps but I was only running 1:39s.

    I found the left front going yellow if I pushed it after about 6 laps and the temps are going higher. McLeans and Coppice seem to be particularly hard on the left front.

    The left front will cool back down by the time you reach the Fogarty Esses but then you will put more pressure on it at the Melbourne hairpin. To me the Softs just aren't worth it at this track.
