    This car is really a beast that tries to kill you. Dunno how to setup him proper in AC - so thats it for this WHC in AC.
    Thank you again @Totall Wrytoff - its a brilliant idee to have this two cars in one week and to compare the two corsas. :)

    This AC plus ACC format is a really good idea! I have had ACC since the beginning and have not spent much time on it. I now have a reason to dig into this deeper. Thanks!! So far, I've not got a clue on changing the setups so I used the aggressive setup out of the can until I got used to the car. I find it a bit more forgiving than AC physics, yet I am slower. I've had to adjust the settings for FOV on the triples and it looks a bit more like familiar territory. I'll start playing with it some more and see if I can figure out how the setup system works...the gui is a bit wonky. Love the 911 sounds! Today, irl, a newer 911GT3RS went by me as I came back from a walk...the sound from those exhaust pipes is a symphony! Lust!! Cheers!

    Edit: I see that my track is set to FAST. Others are on Optimum. I will try that tomorrow...I think more grip on Optimum? I'm hoping!

    Optimum is best grip. Mike has wind - now we know why he is so fast on the long straight :D
    Setup is really fantastic in ACC, but for me not easy to understand. Highly recommended are Aris Videos. But very time consuming. TL;DR can save a lot of time.
    The first and most important thing in ACC are the pressures. Best is ~27.0-28.2.
    But in ACC hotlap you have a new set of tires each time you cross the finish line. So i go to the garage just some meters before the line, then into setup and there you can see the last pressure when you "leave" the track.
    Adjust the pressure in the setup (i feel comfortable with 27.7-28.2).
    If you want more temperature you can close the brake ducts (lower number, less cooling).
    And use brake pad 1 - best for hotlap.

    Hi to all and hope you’re all ok.
    I think I’ve only took part once so far this year, Im struggling on the wheel to say the least and it feels like I’m right back at the beginning again.
    But, a wise man has said to me many times (TW) “it’s the taking part that matters”

    Thanks mate.
    It was actually your posted time that pushed me to keep trying.
    I was just about managing 1.43’s at first.
    ACC seems much harder and I think it’s going to take a lot of practice to become faster but I really like it and love the ffb. Great game.

    It felt a bit better today. Surprised myself with my improvement but still probably lagging behind everyone else. I’m happy just to give it a try.

    I've got it now. I had the ignition and starter on manual anyway.

    Now I know all I have to do is rev hard and then the gear will engage.

    Very simple in the end. I'd assumed with manual clutch you'd have to clutch and heel & toe the downshifts. Obviously not the case. I didn't know this is how the cars are in reality.

    I consider myself educated.

    On the softs, had a big wobble on the kerb at the final chicane, so could be in the 30s. Later.
    Switching to ACC.
