Gaining time with LMP1 at Le Mans

    So I was practicing with the TS040 at the Circuit de La Sarthe mod, and my best time at around 98% grip was a 3:42,x. I know that the Porsche LMP1 cars are Le Mans spec (probably), but I'm not sure about the Audi and Toyota. Also I'm not really familiar with the circuit, and I put 0/1 wings (lowest possible), but when I let an AI race with that setup it was actually lower than all others on stock setup, which indicates that lowest aero isn't actually the fastest.

    So I'd like to confirm if all LMP1 cars on the sim are actually Le Mans spec, what sort of setup would you indicate for that circuit, and also how would you recommend I learn it? I know that even though it's 14Km long there are actually very little to learn in terms of braking and turning, but still any tips are welcome.

    I have yet to make a clean lap around LM. Need these tips too :)

    What do you want to achieve? Just a better lap time or a lap time comparable to that of the real Le Mans races?
    If the latter, keep in mind that the track is not the most accurate one and thus times might not be fully comparable.

    Otherwise, I think playing around with the ERS can make a difference as – iirc – it might not be enough for a full lap in most settings (if any).
    Also it is important to get the race track sections in a clean way.

    My goal is to get the best time possible. Currently I'm at the 42's while the AI get to around 36 (both on 98% grip I believe). Trouble is that, even though there aren't many corners to gain or lose time on, the lap lasts so long that when you do something wrong there's a long way around to try and get it right the next time, so it can get a little frustrating. I still haven't put a lot of practice on it, like trying many different setups, or using the delta app, but it would be nice to have some pointers before I even do that.

    If you're really relatively new to the track, then gaining 6s is nothing.
    From my experience, the default setups of these cars are quite ok, so I don't think you need to invest too much time there.

    Also, after they introduced the chicance on the straights, the Le Mans specific changes were lower compared to the previous years (before 89), because top speed became a bit less important.
    So I wouldn't worry about that too much.

    I suspect that they are Le Mans spec, since every Le Mans racer except for the 962C ST is Le Mans spec afaik.

    Set grip to 100%. 98% is much too low I think in comparison with the grip level at a LeMans weekend. Also for instance checking ideal shift rmp and electric engine mode that will last a lap. A video with pedal app included would help for tips.

    If I remember correctly the fastest laps were around 3am... You'll have to set a temperature that's appropriate. 70-50? degrees Fahrenheit.

  9. I'm doing a quick test of the LMPs at Circuit de la Sarthe at the moment as I want to know which one to pick for a race at the weekend.

    I've done 6 laps with the Toyota and have attached the replay file which might help you learn braking points and stuff.

    The track grip is 98%. Temps are 28/33°C. Setup is default.

    I've raced on the track before but haven't driven the Toyota.

    After the out lap, the first three laps were 3.39, lap 5 was 3.38 and lap 6 was 3.37.

    I'll start playing around with setups next.

    Just to clarify: My goal isn't to set the absolute best time, but to set the best time possible for the conditions. At the moment I'm around 6s slower than the AI on equal conditions, that's the time I want to gain.

    I'll have a look at that, thank you.

    Because I felt like it, I've changed my server to this track at 98%. Feel free to join.
    It's set up for multiclass racing like Le Mans, except that there are 3 classes: LMP1 (Both 919, R18 and TS040), GTE (Corvette and 911 RSR) and GT4 (Maserati GT4 and Cayman GT4 Clubsport).
    Note that I didn't do any BOP (so far), so there might be differences in performance.

    Sorry, we got bored with Le Mans, so we switched to Vallelunga for the time being. But I'll set up Le Mans again later on.

    Did around 45 minutes of practice now, after watching @Stefan Sparco 's replay and I'm pretty much on par with the AI. I can still gain a little bit more since the AI line isn't ideal, but progress was faster than I expected.
