Tips for Mazda MX5 Cup @ Brands Hatch?

    Don't want to start a TC discussion ;) I mainly drive all cars factory and especially since my T300 is still broken (find not time to send it to TM) I have to use my old Driving Force Pro and there I have absolute no good feeling with that pedals.

    What is wrong with 32psi target for warm tyres? I know that 33psi is the best for GT3 slicks and mx5 tyres are also slicks. In the SDK Folders there is no info for the mx5 so I looked for one which could be similar and that was the Abarth 500 SS. The ini says 32psi ideal pressure for its slicks. So as long as nobody has got deeper knowledge I assume that's the way to achieve the best grip you can have.

    Might be just non standard H-shifter (like DIY, or the SSH shifter etc) that is not recognized... like 1/4 of the whole grid there has "no H shifter"
    Also usually when you see somebody actually without shifter they run auto throttle blip (like 19th place).

    As for your question of T1, treat it like Parabolica! I brake quite a bit earlier than your pic position, and i'm on throttle even before rhe inside wheel crosses middle of the track (turning in right where the green painted roadside starts on the left)

    ps: TC is unique in this car as it has such low power to grip ratio that it does not come on in most cases anyways. (It actually can help negate some understeer, which is completely opposite to gow it behaves on other cars :p) But it's definitely not a factor in laprimes... Oh and same can be said for flatshifting/no H-pattern. Heck in some cases i'd not be surprised if flat shifting was minimally slower due to clutch power losses over the increased shift time when not lifting.

    Shouldn't this thread go to ChitChat or something ? A video in the OP doesn't mean it's lounge themed right ?

    Feeling the hatred already.
  4. This thread actually has useful info in it so it needs to be as far away from the chit chat section as possible.

    Still... Why is it here ? This is the Lounge section. People visit it for videos and screenshots. Surely there must be a better place for useful driving, config and whatnot info stuff right ?

    Right ! I know why's it here. No login to view requirements. Kunos, you've made a huge steep, you've crossed the milestone. There's one more to go. Make the whole forum "read only" to everyone, just like you did with this section.
    I can only imagine how many requests, advice's, threats (;)) to do so you got already, but now you just made yourself have to. See how people are now using this section to make your forum work like RD ?

    @daubster sorry mate, but let's face the obvious: you are the only offtopic spammer in this thread.

    Three senseless posts in a so far very constructive discussion. There is a big fat report button, feel free to use it and the support will decide if the thread needs to be moved.

    So, do you have anything to contribute to this thread or are you just enjoying your self righteousness?

    Speaking of H shifter. I have a G27 with H shifter but rarely use it due to a bum left foot. I can run consistent 1:42s but that's it. Am I loosing a second or more using paddles?

    Nice try but no :p I'm also using paddles (or this crappy stick of the DFPro because my paddles are dead) for my 1:40s.

    But a league mate said he feels that you can loose a lot of time with this combo when not using H Shifter, because of the shifting delay. But no idea how much this would be in laptime.

    Paddles here and I blip & flatshift. Hmm I feel the need to try the shifter now...

    I flat shift with clutch and hbox. blip the throttle and the brake :D.... im having brake related crisis atm I just cant do precise input at all. Nao's braking looks really good, I wish I could achieve something similar. I will upload my lap later and post (maybe with maybe without pedal app... depends how embarrassing it is :p)

    ive tried dx tweak but still not happy. the ffb is annoying me in AC atm as well. really strong ffb when the suspension gets loaded up compared to normal steering. I tried lutgenerator and tried changing gamma setting from 0.5 to other values but all feel worse than previous builds. ive turned gamma off in mydocs now, will see how that goes tonight (sorry for OT)

    Did you maybe use the Gyro setting? Was resetted with the patch...

    maybe, cant remember... i'll change it and see if it's better. i think 1.5 was similar anyway. it could just be my wheel slowly dying or something.
