    Not really^^
    Axel made an physics topic and Aris is asking already.
    I posted my story too.
    Lets see if he can reproduce it

  2. In that case the speed would not have dropped that steadily.

    Hello @Aristotelis

    I noticed during MP practice sessions in this car and also the Bentley that there are wheel oscillations when letting go of a steady steering angle - the wheel swings back and forth like 3 or 4 times. I tested this at speeds of maybe 150 kph. I don't know what factors in FFB (Gyro or dynamic dampening in ACC?!?) are relevant to this behaviour but: the Lambo doesn't show this behaviour - its wheel just goes back to the center position with maybe a tiny overshoot to the other side and then stays there.
    No FFB settings were changed in between. I run 100 % dynamic dampening.

    I thought that the Lambo behaviour was pretty spot-on. Will the BMW and the Bentley be tweaked, accordingly?

    After reading this blog it finaly helped me a lot to understand what i was making wrong when driving the M6. Knowing the capabilities of the car let me improve my laptimes a lot. Keep up your good work

    I just experienced this, too. In the first couple laps even when I had not that good of an exit onto the mistral straight I could manage getting to 279-280 kph, but after some laps, even with a good exit I had no chance. Only getting to 274 kph max (also tried to return to pits, load the setup again and so on and so forth..)

    Does anyone have a clue if this issue already has its own thread? Can't find anything myself :/

    I struggle with this car at PR. I feel that it's not made for the turns here because most of them seem to slow for the aero to bring much benefit. With a more loose setup the car becomes wiggly in slow turns and slides cost me a lot of time. So it seems that a safe mechanical grip setup for low speeds combined with low wing settings for the straight are the way to go, right?

    ATM I'm at 1:56.3 with the default agressive setup.
  10. I agree with you, it is for this reason that I use most of the time the configuration safe, modified, with much less support and some modification on the front gear.;)

    Almost the opposite for me. I reach 54 high with not a perfect lap and with default setup. My optimal could be around 54.3 or so.
    And I'm far to be an alien.
    The car seems turn when and where i want, no slides and no understeer.

    I've tried with the lambo (always default setup) and i can't run on 56.

    Well I just improved my laptime a lot by simply activating ideal line for 2 laps :p

    Now at 1:55 low and 1:54 is in sight. It starts to be fun.

    Setup wise I started with the safe one, lowered the rear wing, softened the springs and lowered TC to 4. Feels good.

    PR is an interesting one, totally hated it initially but learned the layout in the AC mod version a while back and now it is one of the tracks where I feel very comfortable.

    I felt instantly at home there in the M6, did iirc a 55.6 on default and I would say GT3 is one of my weakest classes of car. Totally can’t drive the lambo, completely doesn’t suit my driving style so was very glad when the BMW arrived

    Does anyone else have the feeling that the M6 has a little bit too much engine power compared to the others? I mean with the M6 in ACC you win every "drag-race" against Bentleys, AMGs or one of the other cars. Even if it has an advantage in acceleration in real life to, it doesn't seem to be that great, at least in television.

    lol wait for the Nissan GTR

    Especially because of the Nissan I find the M6 to strong. If the M6 as such an advantage, how will the Nissan's be?

    This just remembered me a real-life story - not a big one, but it can be interesting a little bit who interested in real life motorsport. :)

    2017 was the debut season for the M6 GT3. Brand new car, the team had a lot of things to learn of the car, that was for sure. With some of my friends, I visited the Sprint Series race at the Hungaroring that year. We were so lucky and the team was so kind and they allowed us to visit their garage (lifetime experience! :), only one of the mechanics just asked us not go too close to the cars, because they were working on both cars. While we were standing in the back of the garage, I had a chat with that mechanic guy - he looked so tired anyway. I was not surprised on that, because they had a really bad weekend - and it was still only Saturday...The M6 GT3s were struggling around the Hungaroring (just like the Bentleys), while the Huracán, AM GT and R8 was soo fast all weekend long. The mechanic said the same stuff; they knew they had a lot of gap compared to the Audi, Mercedes and Lamborghini, but they still did not have an idea where is the problem and how to solve it. As I looked on the mechanic guys, they worked super hard - and in the same time, they did look like a little bit confused. I wouldn't say that they looked hopeless, 'cause they looked very determined to fix the set-up of the car. It was a hard day for them in the 'office' - but how hard they worked on the car, it was incredible...I felt sorry for them to saw them struggle like this.

    But, I think these days show a strength of a team and/or a car - 1 year later, the BMW achieved the 1-2 finish at the 24 hours of Spa. A very well deserved result.

    Sometimes up, sometimes down, but hard work always pay-off - that is what the Blancpain series is all about, and I think that's why we love it! :) ;)

    To be fair the bigger and longer cars like the BMW struggle at tight a twisty circuits regardless, the bigger highspeed stuff like Silverstone/Spa, its more a level playing field.

    Also, with those fast turns at Spa the M6 can take advantage of it's aero underbody.
