    Congrats for your laptime!
    With a dry or wet setup?

    So you're basically doing the same laptimes from beginning to end ?
    On first 1-3 laps track is quite wet, i suppose it should be at least a couple seconds slower than at the end ...

    That's what I'm wondering too..

    Weird.
    I can do a flat 1:38 at the end, but no way i can do < 1:40 on first lap ...

    I wasn't aware yet, but it looks like exactly this. Especially if you have seen hot tyres after the first lap (combined with the laptimes).
    Good timing, I was about to add statistics to the next update, so I've also added some easy-to-query tracking (I have also have gigabytes of lap data, but it's quite some effort to load and read them).

    So there is a bug with the track conditions?
    Not being always the same at each run?

    Looks like it, yes. But I'm a bit surprised, as this has to be *super* rare . Never seen or heard about it, and we have quite a few stints posted yet.
    Let me apply my changes and we soon know more about the frequency and maybe the necessary circumstances

    Mhmm he did previously posted already weird times with 1:39.xxx in the first lap where as Simard, LP69 Wiel and i hold the Top3 places.
    Our first laps where alsways high 1:40 or low 1:41, but never low 1:39 or even mid 1:38.

    Mysterious :D

    I guess you found a bug :D
    Maybe it would be smart to send logs to find the Bug or whatever.
    You can repeat this situation probably.

    I'm curious, what are the conditions for the Misano Hotstint event so that wets overheat after a few laps while dry slicks stay blue from start to finish? Even burnouts take a long while to heat them up. It says 26°C ambient 20°C track on the loading screen.
     
  14. Minolin

    For the slicks: it's the water. Given at least a little bit of wetness (which is the starting condition) gives the tyres so much heat transfer that it's impossible to maintain slick temperatures (with a target of 80°C !).
    Wets obviously are made for conditions with this heat transfer and have a wider, but lower operating window, so they need active cooling in dry conditions.

    The event starts with ~10-15% wetness (don't exactly recall the last state) and sunshine, so the track can dry up rapidly. You can keep the tyres at least in the yellow range by cooling them, you just need to start early and sacrifice corners with puddles off the line, like the last 2 (it's not worth it). So the actual ambient/road temperatures have surprisingly little impact on the tyre temps in this case (probably more impact on how fast the track is becoming dry).

    But the track apart from a few puddles appears to be dry towards the end of the event yet slicks don't heat up. If the track is still wet for the game it's at least not visible.

    I think I had the bug happen in one of my restarts today. Road looked drier, first laps were much quicker than they should be and I saw the tyre surface overheat early on. Aborted the stint without finishing. I can post the log if necessary.

    Same thing here, it was after restart session when it happened to me.

    This is a quote my own message which I sent to Minolin:

    DAMN,now it happend again,when after the last message i continue playing,track was totally dry and tire's came totally red hot before i finish first lap,and lap time was 1.39.1xx including a fairly large driving mistakes.
    So what I did before that,i just launch ACC and check leaderboard's and choose hotstint,then i do car setup and drive three times in a row.After that when i finish last stint and timetable came on i check my lap times and press "back" button,after that i choose "restart" then the car returns to its starting point and selection windows open where i can do setup or quit game and so on... I did not do any selection i just left it like that and start writing message to you.
    When i came back to the game i immediately noticed that the track was dry,time had passed perhaps 30min.
    It seems that even the game is in pause, the weather is not..

    I found a way to reproduce the issue. It's indeed the weather not being paused under certain conditions. I messaged Minolin about it so hopefully it can get fixed.
