    Almost finished the learning curve and now the grind starts... I thin I can do much better but it will take practice.. Hopefully by the end of the week I will get into 2.20 zone.

    @Tw really nice setup.. Make the best of it :) a fanatec setup it is on my whislist too but by the looks of it it will have to wait...

    Keep improving! [​IMG]

    @Totall Wrytoff .....what a great looking set of gear and only 5 hours...that's not bad at all for a complete changeover! Now the fun begins. Literally...the setups, calibrations etc. but you will be able to get loads of info from others and the forums. Good luck and have fun!

    First hotlap with the new rig is 2/10ths quicker!
    Then spent ages fiddling with settings.
    Using the H-shifter is much more engaging, having a clutch makes Copse far easier, paddle shifts feel unusual with the new wheel at the moment, I'm doing similar laps times whichever.
    The belt drive makes an enormous difference and feels much more accurate on turn in.
    I'm going to have to dial in to it and adjust though. Good laugh.

    Off topic but tips for TW re fanatec....

    Keep the packaging....fanatec retains it second hand value so if (when....your a sim racer after all!) you upgrade further, original packaging will help retain its value

    Don’t bother with the brake pedal damper kit, but the brake performance kit is worth getting of you want to get a very stiff brake pedal
  5. Cheers dude!:D
    As non-UPS supporter and a plug and play man, it's been quite a tough experience! I feel emotionally drained.
    But now the fun begins and I'm playing safe and sticking with default settings - I've seen what I can do to a car's handling!:)
  6. Nice, thanks Mike.
    That's going to thrill Mrs TW!:D:D:D
    And just to confirm, that's fully on topic.:)

    There's the 2:21...barely! H shifter this time. Doesn't seem to make much of a difference in terms of laptime. With paddles, you can really focus on your braking/turn in etc and both hands on the wheel whereas with H shifter, one hand has to come off from time to time and also the braking on heel/toe takes practice to modulate the brake.

    I wouldn't dream of being so rude.

    Surely the biggest upgrade of them all would be the pc?

    That rig deserves all the content the mods can offer.
  13. It made me laugh.
    I've gone through the thinking on whether the talent deserves this level of equipment!

    By the way if anyone would like to try out the Fanatec, it's in Barons Court, West London. Send me a message and I would be delighted to share.

    This is my shameful time for today. I feel I'm driving a kombi compared to your times. As excuse, this is not a circuit I'm familiar with, still learning.

    I'm using H shifter, I like the simulation as real as possible. I don't know if that takes some lap time.

    Lately my work has been a major obstacle to improving my driving technique, I've been traveling a lot. Should I work less?

    Total writeoff, congrats on your new hardware, looks great.[​IMG]

    @Rod100, no worries mate! I was pretty much at that time when I first tried out this combo. This track requires some inside info to be fast...watch Pretendracers video and watch his gear selection and his throttle/brake pedal app just to the right of the wheel. Two corners to focus on for BIG gains - T1 (Abbey)...the subtle brake tap to dig the front end in just before turning in to cut that corner. If you just lift and turn, you will understeer terribly. Second...the rhythm through Maggotts, Becketts etc...watch his brake and gear selection through that LRLRL sequence. Its a dance. Good luck and the lack of time makes the time you spend on the wheel special...enjoy!
