[AC] Hack that turns off tyre wear?

    Every sunday I race on a league called "Racelan", at the moment we are in a GT3 championship, the races have 100% tyre wear and the length is 70 minutes + 1 lap.

    17 of june we had a race @ Monza, the results you can see here: https://simresults.net/180618-5ug

    One thing I noticed, is that the winner of the race didn't change his tyres, you can see by the lap time where each player went to pits, all drivers that changed tyres did a lap around 2:27 while pitting, the leader however did the lap in 2:16, later in the forum he confirmed that he didn't changed the tyres, so there's no doubt about it here

    But what's strange, is that while practicing for this race, I did some long stints to test the tyre wear, and my wear according to the original tyre app from AC was:
    Lap 12 = RL Yellow
    Lap 13 = FL Yellow
    Lap 19 = All Yellow
    Lap 22 = RL Red

    Ok, I was using a Z4 and the winner with Audi R8_lms, but talking to other driver with R8_lms, his tyres were even worse than mine...

    So, basically this guy did 40 laps with Soft tyres, when they were supposed to be Red with wear at the middle of the race, and not only that, but he did 1:48.7 @ lap 39 with the same Soft Tyres, while the other racers were doing ~1:49 with 19 laps of wear

    Yesterday we had another race, this time @ Imola, the reseults you can see here: https://simresults.net/180625-Y5N

    Once again, the winner was around 1 second faster per lap than everyone, at least this time he seems to have changed his tyres (according to his pit duration)

    My wear this time was:

    Lap 13: RR Yellow
    Lap 14: FR Yellow
    Lap 15: RL Yellow
    Lap 17: All Yellow
    Changed tyres @ lap 21, but probably they would start going red at lap 22 again

    Once more, while everyone was getting red wear around lap 23, he was still going strong.

    His best lap on the race was 1:43.2, while no other driver managed to do a lap below 1:44

    Another audi driver, tried the same strategy he did on the last race by not changing the tyres, and was doing 1:47 by the end of the race...

    Has anyone seen something like this? Is it really possible to do 18 of the 20 best laps of the race, and still manage to make soft tyres last for 1 hour and 12 minutes?

  3. He's a better driver than the rest of the league, it's simple!
  4. I don't know how someone manages to go so long on soft tyres and still do great lap times. Is there anything setup-related that can be done to make that achievement possible?

    I have tried adjusting camber, using very restrictive TC (as low as 2/10 or even 1/10 sometimes), setup slightly understeery, and I can't make the tyres (especially rears) last as long without losing too much speed. I can only manage HALF distance, it's like if the guy gets brand new tyres without changing them in the pit stop.

    Found another results from another championship

    This time it was Maserati mc12 GT1 @ Road America

    Once again, a race with 35 laps, none of the drivers was able to do a lap below 2:05 on the last 5 laps, and he managed to do 2:03.1 on lap 33

    Yup, the guy is just faster than the rest.
    I can go 1:43 on Imola in gt3 as well, and soft tyres are fine down to 20-30 procent, maybe loosing half a second on highspeed tracks. Yellow tyres is no problem.

    Well, what Specht77 says is that the guy drove a whole 1 hour race on soft tyres, and did competetive laps even at the end. I don't understand that as well (i did a 1 hour GT3 race recently, and forgot to change tyres at the pitstop, and the tyres were ridiculously worn at the end;the server had 100% tyre wear as well). But, maybe just ask him?

    He didn't drove 1 hour, he drove 1 hour and 13 minutes, and after 70 minutes with the same soft tyres, he was doing laps faster than people with softs for 30 minutes.

    I did asked him, his answer was:

    "As curvas de 2 e 1 ligava o TC as de 3 pra cima desligava e o freio nas freadas fortes passava pra frente e nas que tinha que só dar um toque passava para trás"

    Translating to english:
    "Turns that used 1st and 2nd gear I turned TC on, turns from 3rd gear and above I turned TC off, on hard braking turns I threw the balance to the front, and the turns that only tapped the brakes, used the balance more to the rear"

    Is he usually that fast as well, or is he new to the league, and never did a race in it?

    He is not new to the league, but also wasn't anything special, 2017 we had a GT3 championship, with 15~30 drivers each race, his positions were:

    4 - 5 - 3 - 9 - 8 - 4 - 17 - 23 - 5 - 4 - 2 - 8

    Ok, that seems a bit odd then.

    He could have just practiced a heap, moving brake balance per corner is annoying enough, adjusting traction control as well is getting prety out there.
  13. Specht77

    Specht77 Racer

    But would practice defy physics and make his tyres last more than double compared to all other drivers?
  14. Serge M

    Serge M Alien

    Running a lot of traction control will make the tyres last a fair amount longer (unsure how much longer) at the cost of outright speed. If he has learnt how to balance that then it’s not impossible

    Can you map buttons to activate a certain TC or brake balance setting? I would imagine switching through all the TC settings is quite a hassle inbetween the corners... never heard that someone did that. Adjtsing brake balance a couple of percent up or down, OK, but, never heard that someone changes the TC per corner. Frankly, i don't see a point in doing that either.
