  1. Hotlapping on SPA, BMW, default aggressive setup

    Constantly trying to improve without using custom setup. That is personal my best so far.

    That car feels like crap. I don't like it. I drive a 6 series irl, so I want to like it....but I just think its aweful.

    You gave me the will to try her out once again ! Great lap dude :)
  5. Thanks :)
    Couple of years ago I have raced in some amateur local championships with fwd track day car.
    But these RWD GT3 cars are from another planet. It is so much different and difficult than what I have used to.

    I cannot even break 2.20-2.21 with this car. It just feels so slow. Are you using the stock setup on it?
  7. I use the "aggressive" setup.

    overall good driving. I love to see quick beemers, because of how rare they are. Just a couple things i noticed that would push you into the 17's:

    use more trailbrake (especially in bruxelles)

    roll on smoother on the throttle (especially in bruxelles)

    shift a tad sooner. There's not much power/torque left after the gear widget starts blinking and you'll greatly increase your fuel economy at no cost. Same as overboost on ferrari.

    A recent lap on racefuel/towards the end of a race with a (very) custom setup:

  9. Thanks for the advises.

    For trailbraking I completely agree - I am trying to do it, but I am not good enough at this. Actually I have better sectors (especially s2 with 0.3 better) but cannot repeat them together in single lap.

    Smoother throttle - also agreed and it's easier to achieve :)

    I have experimented with shifting sooner, but every time I do it especially on the straights the delta starts to raise. I noticed on some turns 9,11,14 that you shift to 3rd gear like too soon, but may be it gives you a smoother exit, will try your technique.

    I like your lap, the car seems so stable and watching your video I believe that you drive much smoother (also on the wheel and pedals) than me.

    I will continue practicing, but will not go into custom setups endless movie :)

    Thanks again man.
  10. I’m keen to give the BMW a good go but so far found it feeling yuk. Can you give me a few pointers with setup beyond the base agro? No need for all your secrets, but maybe some of the things that helped the poor girl come to life a bit....

    My base aggro setup does not produce a lap like this.
    I also know spa pretty well, I don't see how the base setup in this car can get this laptime.

  13. Cheers mate. Will give it a spin tonight. Looks quite close to my Merc setup changes actually. Let you know. Thanks again.

    And yet there are more possibilities to improve ... practice practice practice :)
