  4. A big welcome to the WHC @ignission! Delighted to see you and really interesting to hear about ACC v AC. I hope you can build in a weekly slot for AC / WHC from now on.:)

    Thanks for the welcome @Totall Wrytoff!

    Yeah I'm going to make an effort finding time to compete in these, I've followed them with interest for sometime. This was a good week for me to start as Monza is the circuit I have the most hours in. I don't know many tracks that well, particularly in AC, so this week will most likely be my most competitive going forwards!! :D

    It’s great to force me to drive cars and tracks I normally avoid.
    I still shudder when I see black cat country or Scottish highlands long and the old cars with vintage tyres

    god this is an hard track to master.
    It feels like I’m loosing a 10th or 2 on every corner by not carrying enough speed through.

    The second chicane and second lesmo are where I typically gain or lose the most time. But I agree it's a tricky track to master - there's not that many corners but they're all pretty technical.

    Took me about 3 goes to do this when really should have been testing fuel / pit strategies lol

    Further lowered final drive, took some getting used to a few corners where the gear required had changed, also still forgot to adjust PSI for softs!

    I have pretty much 8 tenths to find from somewhere, oof :p

    Couple of quick questions for you seasoned WHC'ers - what are the optimum tyre pressures after they've settled in AC for GT3 cars? In ACC it's 28psi. What's the score with fuel load? Is it discounted in hotlap mode? And finally, can you adjust the engine map? I notice on the stock setup it's set at 2...

    27 psi is optimal iirc
    Hotlap mode disables wind but fuel load works realistically - not fixed to a certain value or reset when crossing the line, same with pressures, temps and tyre wear also not reset when crossing the line as in ACC.
    Engine map is not adjustable

    Still can’t break 1.50
    I love it but the prob with this particular combo is your not losing 10th here and there , get a corner wrong and is half a sec.
    the amount of time I just catch the kerb and takes that fraction longer to get the grip again and the laps gone. Practice practice throw toys out the pram and practice again!
    Happy with this lap, still searching for a set up so if any of you sub 1.50 era care to share it might give me false hope to try again.

    I am delighted though to be within 3 sec of leaders maybe I can get a drive with Williams .

    (tiny) improvement
    mike Reynolds

    Tweaked my set up a bit tonight, prefer it but too tired to get it all together in one lap..... @Chaos_Chris FWIW basically I've increased tyre pressure a little (more on FR), TC 7, ABS 6, real wing 2, stiffened the front and softened the rear a little, increased power diff + 1 click, Lowered coast -1 click, BB 65. If I can't improve my next step would be to look at the fast dampers to see if I can attack the curbs in parabolica more aggressively, feel I am slow through there.....

    Ok,i've finnaly dragged my a... into my rig and did a 1.53 on softs all the rest on default.Considering how long it's been i'm very pleased with that time.I didn't take a screen shot cause i just wanted to see how far off i was i literally did 4 laps.Now the hard work starts:eek:
    ps,it felt bloody nice!!!:D
    pps,i was unfaithful to AC.I did have a little play with gtsport a while back just to ease myself into it again but that lasted only a few laps,sssssshhhhhh,don't tell anyone:eek::eek:

    That's the beauty of Monza, it may seem simple but the price of not getting any corner spot on is high. I know it's a marmite track with a terrible T1 reputation on-line, but I find it a fantastically challenging circuit to try and get a fast time on.
