  1. On the dash-side of things: Man those BMW drivers probably need glasses to be able to read the dash since they are sitting so far away x)

    I think what you see is tire pressure...not temps

    M6 dash screen only show tire pressure.
  3. ...but isn't there something missing that tells you if your car lights are on or off? I mean there are indicators for your direction indicators...but not for your car light? Seems a little odd x)

    I presume the buttons on the dash should have a small light that lights up if you enable ignition, headlights, rainlights, but they don't.

    Can the cars get a dimmer switch/knob? Something with a few brightness settings for sunlight/overcast/night conditions?

    The BMW has quickly become my new favorite out of the 3 cars, but I will obviously "main" the Porsche when it's released.

    Can we have some more info in regards to the best ride height to max out aero efficiency of splitter and diffuser? Min height for m6 is 89/92 mm, is this a good start for rake angle as well?

    In AC I was told 66/76mm was the best for the 488, wondering if that makes sense knowing most are aiming for min height.

    Thank you for the insight.

    I am suprised how much faster this BMW is on the straight vs Bentley.
    Both are huge cars, both use Turbo V8.
    BMW engine feels really like diesel, when you u switch back to the Lambo.
    But Bentley is nearly 6 km/h slower on Paul Ricard. Even in slipstream no chance.
    I think I made good setups so far as I am leading two leaderboards (65min Bentley, 9min BMW Hotstint) and placed in Top5 Hotlap.

    BMW has for sure problems with Curbs.
    First Corner of PR I always sweat little bit.
    Bentley just rides comfortably over it.

    But Bentley isnt that fast yet imo.
    Dont know if BOP is coming or implemented already?

    In Rain the BMW is even better.
    His stability is insane and gives so much trust.
    Plus little touch of understeer helps me to be faster.

    Very suprised about this car.
    Doesnt sound well, but drives very nice.

  13. Yea I noticed that, too. Especially at Misano I have trouble following the Bentley on the straight after T6 because I can't get a good exit with the M6 since you kinda have to use the curbs which then makes the BMW unstable. Same thing with T15...totally unsettles the car if you attack the curbs. I think you can do something about it with the setup but I have no clue about damper settings etc as of yet :oops:

    Well if you put down the BMW to 54-56mm he is very fast, but makes him more nervous about curbs.
    I stiffened the fast bump to around 30-33 and loosened the fast rebound to around 24-27. Dont know yet for sure.
    But I tested this only on Paul Ricard^^

    Normally Bentley is more fighting out of corners due TC and his power.
    With BMW you set TC to 1 and just play with the throttle.

  15. Gases expand while warming up.
    It's physically defined kinda like this:

    p(t) = p0 * (1 + y * Δt)

    p0 = reference pressure
    y = coefficient for expansion (pretty much the same for every gas, you can put in 367*10^-5/K for air)
    Δt = Difference in temperature you want to know the pressure for

    So if you're starting with a tire presure of 25psi for example and the presure increases to 27psi the air inside your tire got warmer by about 25K.
    Of course this shouln't be 100% acurate for a good tyre simulation but maybe Aris can judge if this matches the simulation roughly.

    Probably asked /mentioned before, but this skin is gone since 3.1?[​IMG]

    I cannot find it in UI/menu anymore?

    EDIT: Never mind it's still there in Practice....:rolleyes::oops:

    Might be Sprint vs Endurance version.
    That team/livery runs in the Sprint cup while the Rowe and Walkenhorst cars in ACC are Endurance versions.

    What I'm wondering is why we weren't given the newer 3Y Technologies livery, as they used two this year in Blancpain. 3Y started with the one that's already in this game, and then at some point through the year changed to a different version of the livery (same goes for the #77 Barwell Motorsport Lamborghini).


    This also makes me wonder what they're going to do about the different liveries of other teams, for example Akka ASP changed the livery of their #88 car for Spa, Nurburgring and Barcelona, as well as the #90 car a few races before, as well as RAM Racing.
    #88 Akka ASP ^
    #90 Akka ASP ^
    #49 RAM Racing ^

    Well, I assume we get them all - excepting minor changes from round to round, and provided they got licensing from the teams and sponsors - as soon as they finished working on them. A lot of liveries to be done for the 2018 season.
