    I could be wrong but I believe the amount of options(numbers) varies from car to car.

    @Tony212 - yes - i only meant the information for the Aston V12. Its the first time i really look at the ECU maps. So take everything with a grain of salt from me ;)

    So the obligatory Aris.Drives post when it comes to ACC.

    TL DW Wet Setups - its a Lambo though... Note: ride height does not effect the Aston as dramatically as it doesn't generate much if any down force from the diffuser.

    Full Stream, some stuff about dry and wet lines at around 1:27.30

    A short declaration of love to the WHC - not individual egoists fight for victory, know-how is shared, help is provided here and has been for years. My deep respect to the organizers who invest time and love and ideas.
    And many thanks to the friendly participants here - you are awesome!!!!!

    *Rain light on*

    So you don't have to be that gentle with the old gal, when its slippery :po_O;)

    First complete run, did a 10 minute free practice to get the tyre pressures about right, very inconsistent right now, when you have a moment it cost a lot of time! Something to note is the fuel load, be wary when you change maps if you have set it on the absolute limit! ;)

    Medium slicks at recommended psi, but I noticed at the finish the left had side were deep orange and at 30 front and back.
    Having fiddled around, I wasn't able to beat my "shakedown" time.o_O
    The hard slicks work better overall, but you loose time at the start of the lap when the mediums are gripping and following the ghost surely costs you time/ is depressing!:)

    I've never been round this track before and this is my first exploratory lap so there's room for plenty of improvement.

    Oh my this car is epic, the noise as you run it up against the pit lane wall is just immense, and then she spits flames as you down shift!

    I have the track set to fast (shows wet), I don't know if placebo but I think the track evolves over the coarse of the run, it seems to get quicker and quicker, note the step change on lap 4. I think whatever rubber was on the track is gone by then thus giving more grip on the racing line. Need to try a green track to see...

    Replay and my base setup attached for those that are bored ;)

    ...but quite unprecedented in ACC!!

    @Graveltrap leads @GoodGame.eXistenZ by four seconds. This is the first time I can remember GoodGame not being at the top of the list! However, it is early days and as GoodGame said, it is a new event for him. Nonetheless, hats off, again, to @Graveltrap for his very tight session, very impressive indeed.
    The target is set.
    It is 15 mins 31.5 seconds or better, for glory.:)

    Just wait he will put a lap on the field now you have said that!

    Man 30 seconds. Yikes guys, well done.

    I can shave 20, tops. (Idk we'll see how learning wet setups goes for me)

    Nice time @Graveltrap. :cool:
    I tried TC settings 1-10 and they all feel the same.:confused: So what is the actual difference, or is my mind messing with me?
    And I too believe that the track has more grip towards the end. Is this true? I really can't tell.

    Btw. now that I have tried hotstint, I would prefer 10 minutes. It keeps the spirit of the hotlapping idea.

    I seem to remember as lot of judder and no real forward movement at the higher settings, maybe you aren't heavy on the pedal and not activating it much?

    That is what I would expect of course. Just 0 or off was really different. But maybe I used a heavy foot. :p
    I guess I will really have to put more time into ACC to understand it - AC is really more drive & go. :D

    The higher the TC setting, the quicker it engages and the slower you accelerate while it's engaged.

    The easiest way is to watch for the yellow bar when it engages.

    You're probably just so close to the right amount of throttle that you don't need it much.
