Is there a depository for times of various cars on various tracks in AC?

    I tend to drive the same tracks in the same cars. AC lets me know if I am doing better or not, but I always wonder what I ought to be doing. I'm no alien. IRL I'm 10-15% slower than the best drivers. That doesn't sound like much but if a top driver can lap a track in 100 seconds, I'm not going to be able to do it in less than 110. Nevertheless, I would like to know what other folks are doing. Then I'll have some idea how far off I am. Trying to improve is meaningless without that.

    This is fantastic. It isn't exhaustive but close enough. I bookmarked it. I drive a couple of mod tracks and cars, but the AC coverage is enough to get me in the ballpark.

    One interesting thing I noticed is they have VIR, which is a mod track. I'm surprised Watkins Glenn is missing.

    Wow. I've had a chance to look at some of these results. I know I'm 15% slower than a top real driver in a real car, but it is more like 20% vs. these guys in the sim. Still, I can use that. It gives me a target. I just have to accept I'm not that quick. But I have fun!!

    Just thought of something. On street cars I use street tires and recommended pressure with no mods. Is that what these guys do? For more track oriented cars I use the default tire and pressure, also without mods.

    Checking further my results seem to be somewhat track oriented. For example, I did a 2:28 at Spa in the 911RSR and that's only 10% off the 2:13 record. OTOH, I'm way, way off on the Nordschleife.

    if you hover over the red i on the right side of the rankings list it shows you what tyres / session type and perhaps most importantly , track conditions were used to set the time. A lot of the best times are now run with very low temps which is always worth a good chunk of time...

    I'm in a similar situation as you. Maybe worse. I've been driving in Asssetto Corsa for 4 years, I think. I'm still nowhere near the top drivers in terms of lap times. I've accepted long ago that I probably never will be. Like you, I've driven certain courses over and over. I know where the fastest line is, but I can't find a way to be as smooth and fluid with my steering, braking & accelerating that I need to be. Take a track like Nordschleife. Just being 2-3 tenths of a second slower on average through almost every corner adds up to many, many seconds off a good time. And that's not even comparing ourselves to the top RSR times. There's a reason why the very top 1% of drivers are called Aliens. :eek:

    Have fun...Stick with it. And learn to get on the brakes a teeny-tiny bit later than normal. Or, learn how to get back onto the throttle a little bit sooner than you do currently. It almost seems impossible, but those things are where average drivers, like you and I lose time each lap.

    Good luck!

    I found if I click on the name of the person posting the lap in Stats->World Records it takes me to a detail page where that info is available. Thanks. Unfortunately it turns out to not be as helpful as I had hoped.

    Data for the Porsche 718 Boxster/PDK at Laguna Seca, for example, only shows two entries on street tires (over 30 on semi-slicks), the best being 1:43. I saw a video of Randy Pobst taking a 718 around Laguna Seca in 1:40, which for me, would equate to about 1:35 in the sim. The best I've done is 1:48, not even close. Nevertheless, it is a start and much better than nothing, and your tip will help me to refine that further.

    Although I use street tires on street cars, maybe I SHOULD use semi-slicks to generate a better comparison. I think they are the default, but I'm not really sure what they are meant to represent. I use whatever the default settings happen to be on everything else so the temp knowledge may be helpful. I haven't reached the point where that has even been a consideration.

    On track oriented cars I do use the default tires, so comparisons may be more useful there. Unfortunately, I am not likely ever to drive them IRL.
