  1. Thanks @milko Think we need @Erik to join us for a race again to show us what the real alien pace looks like. Shame about your fuel as you were staying within striking distance really well in that first race. Frustration can always hit hard @mrben09. I am sure you will be able to make a strong return Maybe a good way to get back on track could be to just stick to the default aggressive setups? Because at our skill level (including mine), 90% of the time lost and instability in cars is caused by our own driving rather than suboptimal setups. And the aliens can manage far better times than any of us on the default aggressives so it's mostly driving technique.
  2. Haha thanks Milko, tbh I was a bit surprised myself at the time because my previous bests with the Audi on patch 1.8 were hovering around 2:20s and high 2:19s. So likely a combo of Mclaren being slightly overpowered and a good setup for that sector. With the BMW and Mclaren nerf, will be interesting to see how the times are affected come Thursday
  3. @davejm I can imagine that transition to be very difficult especially since VR is far more natural for our brain to process. My tip for Eau Rouge in pancake mode (can't do VR due to slight motion sickness) is that you have to look ahead in the corner to nail it. So once I turn in left for the first part of the corner, I am already looking at the spot on the right hand side curb that I want to get close to on the right hand turn. This gets me on a good line for the exit almost all the time. Hope this maybe helps a bit
  4. Is the PW the same as for the servers? Tried that but doesn't seem to work so unsure if different or if LFM site is glitching
  5. I've completed my license on LFM as well now. I remember there was something about a RLLMUK team on the website? Is that already existing? Some nice times here! Gonna have to get some more practice in before Thursday. Almost a second to find in sector three alone
  6. @Valver @davejm thanks for the quick answers Signed up and will be racing later on
  7. Hi everyone it's been a little while since I've posted here Hope the recent season has been fun. Is there any way I could spontaneously hop in for the race tonight as well?
  8. I wont be able to make the race tomorrow unfortunately as I am moving countries and the sim racing equipment is already across the border. Good luck to all and looking forward to the next one
  9. I won't be able to join many races this season but I will still register again just in case I can make a race or two. Will stick with the Audi due to limited practice time
  10. A nice dose of Nordschleife or the Le Mans Circuit would be the dream but very unlikely given license restrictions. I know Circuit Magny-Cours was supposed to be added in a DLC at some point as well but COVID-19 didn't allow for the laser scanning anymore. My gut feeling does sense a big dose of AC mobile though, which does not excite me one bit...
  11. @davejm For the race I will pick the tricky Snetterton during the day with dry and sunny weather (if possible) and low variability.
  12. Was some fun racing indeed! Enjoyed the one-off difficult experience with the car but definitely not a car you want to deal with every week Race 1 was pretty smooth sailing until I entered the Schumacher-S a bit too quickly and spun it around, dropping me back to P3. Managed to regain back to P2 after @SharkyOB 's Porsche also decided to misbehave. Congrats again to @Valver for a great race win! Only one to show the consistency in that first race and deservedly taking advantage of it. Race 2 the car felt much more stable and planted and I learned my lesson from the first race to not race against the clock too hard. I was eventually able to build a solid gap to @davejm and got the win I threw away in the first race. And the transition from late afternoon to dark evening also made the scenery very enjoyable. For set ups, I also took the baseline aggressive setup and: Increased the negative camber on all four tyres added some negative front toe rear ride height at 109 and front ride height at 77 rear wing up to 9 stiffened the front ARB to 3 for some extra turn in Overall a great race session but glad to have some traction control back again soon
  13. Without a doubt a car that needs a lot of patience Anyone managed to get the front tyres into a green temp window? Have tried all the tricks in the book (negative toe, lower brake ducts, high camber) but nothing gets em into that nice window.
  14. More dancing along a track with a difficult car... sign me up after yesterday's epic racing
  15. Haha that means she will be like verstappen's cats
  16. @SharkyOB Thanks for some of those tips. also helped me out to cut my time a bit further Key tomorrow, more so than in the ACC league, will be to not bin it... easier said than done over an entire 30 mins
  17. Ah ok no worries mate. Was just wondering how you knew about @SharkyOB 's time on Bremgarten and thought there might be a server to answer that Did quite a few practice laps tonight to get the hang of the car and track and boy oh boy is it fun The sliding, the turning the car with the throttle and managing the momentum is such a fun and different experience from the aero heavy GT3s. Managed a 2:38.6 as my fastest lap today but no idea whether thats any good or not...
  18. Hi Guys back from the vacation... seems like I missed an eventful race last thursday! Congrats @Erik for the championship win. Glad I was able to beat you in at least one race (even if it was your first time properly driving laguna ). And glad to see @Yannik joining as well from the powerQ crew . @davejm I would definitely be interested to race this car / track combo on Thursday! Would be a nice historic race through an old hometown track of mine
  19. Hahaha perfect timing A tale of two races for me. First one obviously ruined by my own mistake (you're welcome for the gift @Erik ) and then had severe damage on the rear, so I was playing ACC Tokyo Drift for a little while until I decided to call it quits and save my concentration and energy for the 2nd race. 2nd race was a whole lot smoother and my pace was strong. Was quite surprised at the gap I was able to build but @SANtoOos and @Erik were battling behind so could take full advantage of that. Overall a nice way to end the season for me since I'll be in sunny Sardinia next week . Just wanted to say thank you to @davejm for the invite to this great community and for organizing the servers / simracingGP! It's been brilliant practicing, racing and chatting with you all over the last weeks. Not sure how much I will be able to participate in the next season as I start a poor work-life balance internship in September. But will try to make as many races as possible
  20. Not yet but it sounds somewhat enticing. I've only heard good things about the new FFB but the old one wasn't so brilliant either. And a good ranked system with easy drop-in races without the cost of a kidney always gets my attention ( iRacing ). No worries man, I think we all feel similar things at various times during sim-racing. Laguna Seca is a bit of a crap track in this game even though I really like the layout. But the sliding and the extremely punishing off-tracks make it a pain to learn and practice. In my Chevy, traction off corner exit is such an issue, even more so compared to other tracks. And some nice change of pace with different cars is always good after only driving GT3s for hours on hours
  21. sounds awesome! Unfortunately no corner hopping is allowed as you correctly guessed. Strictly limited to one spot for the race. But atleast we have a great view on one of the best overtaking zones and a tv screen to hopefully give some context with what else is going on during the sessions (see red mark below). And it looks like mixed conditions for Saturday and Sunday so could be a real spicy race
