    Quick question and apologies if in wrong place........ I have been enjoying very much the Porsche but decided after watching the event yesterday to try the 720S but I just cannot seem to get it dialled in at all. I cannot get into the 1:49’s at all at Monza (consistently run 1:49’s in Porsche) and at silverstone I cannot get below the 2:02’s (steady 2:01’s in Porsche). I feel it handles superbly well but I’m just not quick in it so any tips is most appreciated or is their a car set up section?

    many thanks in advance

    Why don't you just hotlap with Porsche, save the ghost, then play with the Mclaren with Porsche as ghost to see where are you losing time? I used to play with the Aston Martin but tried also the Mclaren. I thought I was "much faster" with the Mclaren but it was just an illusion. The camera is lower and it gives you a more sense of speed compared to the Aston Martin at least, but the truth is that I was faster with the AM despite of my "speed feeling". I would use the ghost car with some offset if neccessary to compare your times visually.

    I also felt the McLaren was faster and close to 1 sec faster in the Aston. The higher engine sound on the McLaren vs Aston also messes with me giving the impression of speed.
    The Aston with lower engine grunt doesn't sound fast, esp after a slow speed corner (final one of SPA).
     
  5. The Aston has no low end whatsoever, and no grunt out of corners. It's its biggest weakness.

    Wonder how the new patch will effect things

    - Improvements in Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO suspension.
    - Improvements in BMW M6 GT3 aero.
    - Fine tuning in Lexus RC-F GT3 aero yaw sensibility.
    - Improvements in Bentley GT3 2018 inertia and engine values.
    - Improvements in Aston Martin GT3 V8 turbo lag.
    - Core engine work.

    AMG probably still faster than anything else in Monza.

    Everything else...dunno.
     
  8. That comment aged well :D

    is this normal to the porche 911 v2 setups for zolder? The only difference between the safe and the aggressive setup is just couple of air psi's.

    most probably it is a mistake.
     
  12. It's Simsource. Extremely helpful for setup comparison, fuel and FOV calculation. Access it here. It is a great tool.

    I'm joining this BOP party very late. Just went through some posts very quickly, reading comments about driving style and whatnot but the entry list of the SRO AM championship doesn't lie. They could've just called it the Audi vs Porsche series. I assume one brand or the other had extra weight in these races to make things worse.
    I do find the Porsche has an unrealistic advantage vs the rest that I don't see in real life races.

    this is something i've been saying for sometime already: the Porsche 2019 has an edge over the other cars or at least is much easier to be fast, that is, a proficient but not 'alien' driver will on equal terms, will require much less time and effort to get to a certain pace than on other cars.

    I remembered when i started playing the game, i only drove the GTR but didn't understand why was consistently beaten by the Porsche mainly from drivers i knew i was equal or faster.
    Then i did this experience to drive in Catalunya with default setup, and in my second lap with the Porsche I did a time 1 second faster than than the several laps i tried witht the GTR.
    Granted now i can easily beat that time with the GTR, with setup and more car/track knowledge, but still it was an eye opener for me.

    Expect the horde of fanbois and denialists to come here and refuse this, they will tell you that BoP should not be checked against one lap time, rather big events. That BoP was made for 3hour races, which by the way doesn't make any sense because 99% of races (and not even counting Open Lobbys here) are less than that, usually between 45m - 90m.

    I had the same experience yesterday at Catalunya. I mainly drive the Lexus and couldn't go faster even with a lot of setup tweak, I just understeered everywhere. I took the aston V8 for the first time and took the aggressive preset and went 1s faster without being that good. I thjnk if you want to be competitive you have to have a combo track / car for each track (ofc not possible in league races). Maybe if the SRO AM took places on more tracks the field could have seen more different cars.

    I should be a noob because I don't like Porsche 911 II. You have to avoid kerbs and it is one of the most traitorous in game (weight transfer when release the brakes/acc, kerbs again, bumps, etc). I love the Aston Martin (maybe too easy to drive? it allows you to use kerbs, very gentle on acceleration, etc). I played a race at hungaroring and SPA yesterday and found the grid very balanced... ferraris, bentleys, bmw, aston, porsches... maybe the less seen are the poor jaguar, the mclaren and Nissan.

    On open server you will see diversity ofc. But if you take a one time event or a limited series like the SRO AM, the competition will be unbalanced.
