My internet was broken for unknown reason, reconnect it just now. Sorry for missing, wanted to race by myself but...
Well done to Jim who had the consistent pace here. I had no consistency in lap times and dropped away from Jim in the early laps. Did try and get in front in the first few laps but never really had a good chance without putting myself in harms way. I knew as soon as Jim had a gap he'd pull away and that's what happened. Well done to Jorge for third
Although I only managed about 25 mins practice before the race, I did finally manage to find more lap-time when we got to Qual. Maybe due to the combination of my TS300RS wheel, the typical steering settings I like to use and/or the default setup, I had big steering problems from the start. It was almost like there was so little steering lock even at slow speeds, the car just wouldn't turn enough. I had to make pretty big changes in practice to get some kind of steering response which stopped me from working on the setup and improving it to my liking. I'd be interested to hear your experience with this?
A decent enough start let me build up a slight gap ahead of Fabio, Jorge and Ramon although dropping back from the fast rate of Jim/Paul. Everything looked OK for a 3rd place until about 5 laps from the end, when the tyres felt they went off quite a bit and I couldn't get the turn in I had been getting. A couple of errors due to this allowed Jorge to close the gap and eventually squeeze through and I could only hang on till the flag. I definitely need to work on the setup before the next race and also try and understand the steering issues I had.
I had no issues with the steering Ken.
What wheel do you use Paul? Also what steering(rotation) settings do you use in Windows CP and steering lock ingame?
Got a Fanatec Clubsport v2.5. I use 570 degs on the wheel. In the setup the steering lock was 26 degs
I loved the car and the track, but just didn't had the pace or the consistency to fight for something. Also when tyres dropped it was quite difficult for me to handle the car. Let's see the next one!
Any chance you can attach your controller setup .ini file so I can compare it to the one I used and make sure I don't have something odd set in it?
I think default was 19 degs so you did make a biggish change there.
