PHYSICS Race weekend tyre sets management, pitstop strategy and fuel load testing

Discussion in 'ACC Blog' started by Aristotelis, Jun 3, 2019.

  1. A question, with a pitstop, a pitstop takes about 30 sec (30L and 4 tires)

    But it remains 30Sec if you take 1L or 100L still 30sec


    On the dedicated server in the eventRules.json isRefuellingTimeFixed is set to 0/false


    So that can't be it, any suggestions why this is happening?

    As this does add to the strategy emersion, and pit dilemma

    Because refuelling happens while you're changing tyres and is faster than 30s. Try to pit without changing tyres and you'll see the pitstop time changing with the fuel amount.
     
  3. I believe it used to be 30 sec will get you 30L but when this is the new standard (and not a BUG) i need to adjust my pit strategy

    30s for 30L I never saw that and it seems a bit unrealistic to be that slow. :D Since I began playing (since 1.3) it has always been like that.

    Couldn’t find GT3 refuelling rate but F1 was 12.1L/sec, As long as GT3 rigs will do 4L/sec then 30 seconds is enough to refuel a car

    Refuel rate is either 2 or 3 seconds to start and then .2 seconds per liter.

    Yeah, it's 'refueling' instead of 'refuelling' KAPPA

    But in all seriousness, I think it's correct. An easier way to calculate how long refueling takes, is 3 seconds to start refueling + 0.2 seconds per added liter.

    Why does any amount of fuel above 49 l take the same amount of time?
     
  10. I don't know the reason for it, but I can tell you that I have verified this experimentally.

    Are you sure you had 0 litres in the car when you tested it?

    I.e. your tank is 110 litres, you already have 61 litres in.

    You scroll through refueling from 0-49, the time needed increases every 3 litres until you get to 49. If you have 61 lites in the car already, the number won't increase if you specify 50-110 in the refueling amount.

    Not saying you didn't - just verifying as I've never tested this myself.
     
  12. OK, I'll do the test and make sure the tank is almost empty. Thank you for your suggestion.
