Generic New Year Hotlap Challenge #109 – What the FxxK??? It’s 2019!

Discussion in 'Console Lounge' started by Totall Wrytoff, Dec 30, 2018.

  1. Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #109 – "What the FxxK? It’s 2019!"

    Here's a track day dream to wish you all a very happy new year!

    The Challenge:
    Car: Ferrari FXX K
    Track: Brands Hatch GP at 16DegC



    Early morning, standing in the pit lane, your heart is beating a bit faster than normal as you pull your helmet over your head and down. Next to you, almost at waist height, sits the Christmas present from one of your wives (or husbands), the pop singer one….
    "What the Fxxk?????"
    There is a menacing, pulsing noise in the air. Mechanics are fussing around and you see someone in red trousers and shirt waving at you you to get into the car. It looks like a spaceship! Deep breath, you drop in, reach up and swing the door down, wriggle each arm through the harness, lock the buckle across your waist and pull the straps down tight. Left foot on the brake, fingers pull back the slim, black paddle with a satisfying click, right foot builds some revs and you come off the brakes, knowing the track is yours for the day and that Ferrari, Pirelli and Shell are there to support…

    The roller-coaster Brands Hatch GP was my first track day circuit, this car (last seen WHC 19) is simply epic. I hope this is a suitable antidote to the Abarth, (and 2018!)

    Wishing a very happy and prosperous New Year to you all! Let rip!

    Please note the ambient temp is down to 16DegC!

    Recommended general tyre pressure for the FXX-K slick is 30psi all round, however even the softs will take some warning up.

    Well, my Mrs. bought the ps4 for me, so effectively she did buy me an Fxx and all the other toys that go with it.

    She's no pop singer though.

    Delivery on quali and Recovery at 70% for two flying laps, then a recharge lap and large swig of the dry martini. Its only early afternoon but that might be the fastest I go this year!

    I put the soft tyres on and dropped the fuel down. All the business with the hybrid system is beyond me so I just left it on 50% and qualify mode. There was still some energy left at the end of the lap though.

    This thing is glued to the track. I'm slowing for corners when I'm sure the car doesn't need to.

    what do you mean with 50 oder 70%? on pc there is charging, long run and qualify. o_O

  9. moodyryder

    moodyryder Hardcore Simmer

    The percentage value is for the hybrid recovery. I'm assuming that's how much braking energy is harvested.

    We have the same three modes for delivery as the pc: Qualify, Long run or charging.

    I don't know if the KERS can be manually discharged like it could on the LMP1 Toyota we once used. I just left it in qualify mode.
  10. Improvement
    Recovery on 70%, which I understand affects the rear diff and braking, expert advice will be gratefully received. I suspect the lower the recovery level, the easier the car is at braking and turn in on corner entry.
    V8_KB, the3ws, Tibor Sólyom and 5 others like this.
  11. I don't think the FXX K has a boost button (like the the P1 and 918 do.) Ideally you start the lap with a full green bar on the HUD and as you come up to cross the line it is nearly empty. There, that's the outer limit of my knowledge. Is anyone feeling short on power?

    okay, so on ps4 there must be an information bout the percentage. here on pc i cant find it (or i am blind). what is 50%? long run?

    For me this car is besides the Monza Monoposto and Monza Biposto the coolest car and of course the most hardcore carporn version Ferrari has manufactured in the last years. Absolut extreme and amazing car!!!
    Happy new year to everyone:)

  16. Someone with the PC version will step in here to sort you out, in principal, the percentage is the amount of energy "re-charged" to the battery during braking and "Long Run" is one of the delivery options, the others being "Charging," where you have no added electric boost, or "Long run," which is a low boost level and "Qualify," which I think is the option to go for here.

    The strip of gaffer tape over my left eye has massively increased confidence, reduced my double vision and gained me 3/10ths!
