    formula a dead area in throttle

    guys, I have been continuing my quest for performance from formula a that is remotely close to PC1 and despite some improvement I still have what appears to be a lack of throttle response in low revs after say a trailing throttle coming in or out of a corner. Its like I have set a dead spot in throttle settings although this is not the case. Can anyone tell me if dif ramp up or some such tuning matter could be causing such. Its the same with all the driving aids on or off (ie traction control etc).
    regards
    Don

    Are you certain you are going the right direction with Traction Control?
    FYI this is less TC.

    Default Power Ramp is 70, you can lower this number for better acceleration.

    It doesn't have much torque to begin with. This car needs high revs.

    Formula one teams don't appear keen to share power curves but I have found a thread on Reddit where someone extracted the power curve for a F1 car in Forza.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/forza/comme...tus_f1_car_by/

    You can see there is very little power below 5000 rpm. As suggested above you really need to keep highly tuned engines in their powerband.
    Xboxx, 58 inch TV, real fov 80, Sim Labs GT1 evo rig, Fanatec csw2.5, Shifter, v3 pedals, Mclaren Gt3 rim, Sparco Grid q seat.

    The link above is a 2015 Lotus with a hybrid turbo Mercedes engine, modelled in Forza.
    The Formula A is modelled as a 2.4L V8.

    The following is torque curve from an NA Honda F1 (I believe its the 2.4L V8).



    So you can see it has very little torque (about the same as a regular 4-cylinder). But power = torque x rpm and that torque output carries all the way to the very high limiter to make a lot of power.
