    dunno much bout the autoshifting - why do you use it?

    for the immersion, the fun - never used auto (maybe the first hours testing ac with crap wheel and crap graphics card, cant remember exactly ;) )

    It's definitely not the best car to start with, but you have to learn manual shifting. Auto shifting is rubbish, you lose a lot of time with it.
    A nice guide from Aris to understand why is it so important to make shifting ourselves:

    Any setup tips?

    What downforce are you guys running.

    I’m running about 1.46 lap times on average. Hoping to get below 1.40!

    setup becomes relevant < 1.40 - in my opinion.
    try to brake later. then brake later. :)
    after this try to brake later (this is how i improved ;) - must be not the best for you but i think you can brake later :p)

    the modern f1 beasts can brake insanely late and have so much downforce, the speed in corners is absurd....:eek:

    I’m running 16 front and 12 rear.

    But at first I was using 20 front 20 rear until I got used to the car and track.
     
  9. Are you using the super soft tyres? And you will need to shorten the gear ratios, top speed is about 200mph. I'll share my transmission settings if you like, although I'm no expert!

    But also, I find Silverstone is a peculiar circuit, in that there are certain corners where you can lose hours, for example Brooklands into Luffield and from Maggots through to the Hangar Straight. Those parts of the track need a special approach. I'm still not flat out through Copse and sometimes drop down to 6th:eek:. But that is my lack of plums. Watching some on board footage will be useful, you will see where you can carry more speed, where to brake and turn in for the fastest exit etc etc. Nothing beats practise!

    Great video. Thanks Tibor. Tried a bit this morning and can't do much better so I looked at those gears ratio to get more top speed. I think that's my problem. Along with a few more... but I'll have a go tonight

    Try the final ratio at 6.2000

    That's what I have now but I think I'll also change 6th gear. Same 16 front but 20 back.. think I need more practice and see a replay. Maybe I shift too early too late. Will see

  13. I've got too much front wing this evening...

    Warning: I am no expert at setups.

    I just fiddle and fiddle some more until the car feels easier “for me” to drive.
    Only saying this because what works for me might be absolutely sh*t for others.
    I’m sure I was using 6.2000 final ratio but looks like I must of changed it. I’ll have a proper look tomorrow when I’m next on the Xbox.
    If it’s over steering knock the front wings down until it feels even or increase the rear but top speed suffers then on the 2 long straights.

    I took a brave pill and went flat through Copse. I've finally got the line right. One second quicker.
    Now to try to get the other 17 corners perfected.

    Thanks for the tips. I’ll try the short gear ratio, lower tire pressure this evening.

    Good call on the braking by Sissydriver earlier. Braking much later into the turn and using 5th rather than 4th through Stowe got me nearly a second.
    Great lap Lewis! Better than Massa. Going to try out your set-up, thanks for sharing.

    Been a while since I've done one of these but thought I'd give this a blast.....some way of the pace though....4 months of ACC has got me driving everything like a GT3 car :-(

    So KERS, save it for the straights or use it to accelerate out of slow corners?

  19. Good to see you Mike. A tasty start in my opinion and interesting to see the theoretical best. We don't get that on console.
    Great question! Wow! Thanks to my jittery panic in the cockpit find it hard enough to hit the KERS button when the wheel is level. I hadn't considered using it at anytime other than when the car is pointing completely straight! Intriguing.

    Alright this definitely helped. I think at this point I need more of a driver mod per say.
