    Yah I do love a girl that knows how to twerk! :D

    If that's the case try adding a bit more +toe and -camber on the rear end to tighten it up. If you can adjust arb's or springs try a click or two softer to give you more grip in the *** end. You should be able to tweak the setup to match your driving style. You have probably figured that all out by now though...:cool:

    Cheers! Really surprised by that much difference, but surely gives interesting endurance races.

    Now that is a good run, excellent work @GoodGame.eXistenZ

    I might get into the teens if I am lucky!

    I over estimated the fuel by around 10 litres with the different fuel map, and had 2 laps that were 2 seconds slower than the others where I made a small mistake :mad:

    Should be able to shave a few more seconds off with less fuel and no mistakes.

    It's amazing how much difference the Green track makes compared to the Optimum track, it makes sense though I guess :rolleyes:

    Thx - the settings really make a difference. And now I understand how the tyres work...so progress :) Really enjoying it so far. Hope for GT4 next week :D

    In the meantime I ordered my Simucube 2 Pro
    Porsche rim also arrived!

    I guess I will keep my Mclaren GT3 wheel though and redo the mounting for Simucube, as I really like that wheel and have to save some more for other wheels. Really excited how it will turn out. I will keep you guys posted!

    Correct fuel this time, no big mistakes, all the laps were relatively consistent. Tyre pressures almost there.

    Just need to tighten the nut behind the wheel now :D
  8. @GoodGame.eXistenZ
    How exciting!

    I've no idea what it is so I googled:
    "Simucube 2 Pro is equipped with precision industrial robotics grade angle sensors with a resolution of 4 Million steps per revolution"

    But what does that big red button do???:eek:
    Looks like Nitrous.

    It is an emergency stop button as you dont want your hand to be trapped inside the wheel when it spasms with 25nm.

    The Simucube is an alternative to the direct drive wheel base by Fanatec. It can be considered as the direct rival of the DD2. I gathered some information on both and the Simucube appears to be the better solution out of the two with less issues and the slightly better FFB.

    I don't want to dash your hopes but we don't have GT4 on console yet so I don't have GT4 to pick for next week.

    Hoping we get the GT4 on console soon enough as it will probably be 3 weeks behind PS4 on XB1.

    I think every single lap was a 32, average of 10 is 1:32.676. I wish I had a photo, maybe all between 32.4 and 32.9.
    TCS 6
    ABS 6
    Map 5
    Around 28psi to start, up to 32 at the finish.

    I seem to really struggle with this game & this WHC is the first time I've driven in the rain. For my first few attempts I could only manage 9 laps which shows how slow I was going. This is the second time I've managed 10 laps but looks like I'm nearly a minute behind the best times so looks like I shall be bringing up the rear but I'll keep trying.

  18. I can't read the pic!!:mad:

    It's 15.43 something and 10 laps but I've switched it off now and I'm not doing it again.:)
    Braking at exactly the same point for Paddocks, on two occasions I only just avoided going off. No retardation at all.
    For me. there's not enough feel to really want to get to "grips" with it.

    @Pretend racer romps into first place with a three second lead and is the fastest man in the world! Wrytoff still holds second place and fastest consoler. In the world.
    @Rod100 delivers a whole chunk of improvement to take third spot. Elsewhere it is a fairly widespread field and good to see @sissydriver dust off his AC boots, even if they are still slicks this week. Road tyres next week....?

    Well, well well!
    On Monday it was unprecedented and now it is sort of back to normal.

    However, the moral victor at the moment is @mike reynolds . Without doubt.

    Without Mike's serendipitous discovery and much more importantly, him sharing this complete gem with us, @GoodGame.eXistenZ would not be over twenty seconds faster, @Graveltrap, already on a zinger, eleven seconds faster and @sissydriver , another twenty seconds faster.
    I reckon, cumulatively, by the end of a the week he will have saved a whole day in terms of time.:D
    Hats off to @mike reynolds and a big thanks on behalf of WHC for discovery and excellent sportsmanship.

    Meantime, @GoodGame.eXistenZ has taken this challenge by the scruff of the neck, but I suspect @Graveltrap is poised... it's only 7/10ths or so per lap!:)
