Generic Weekly Hotlap Challenge 206 – American Brands

Discussion in 'Console Lounge' started by Totall Wrytoff, Dec 12, 2020.

  1. Welcome to the penultimate challenge of 2020, the Weekly Hotlap Challenge 206 - American Brands.
    Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione Chevrolet challenges at Brands Hatch

    Assetto Corsa Challenge: Hotlap
    Car: Chevrolet Corvette C7R
    Track: Brands Hatch
    **AMBIENT TEMP at 10C**
    Thundering V8s!
    First thing to note about this week’s challenge is the lovely noise of the Chevy V8. A great, fat, rumbling noise that builds as the power grows.
    The maximum drive by noise limit at Brands Hatch is 92 dB….
    The second thing, in the case of the ‘Vette, is that there is a huge roll cage strut arranged across the windscreen. Visibility is seriously compromised!
    You’ll soon forget that though. Working this motor around Brands is absorbing. With TCS off, traction is good, the car responds well to the helm and there is plenty of power. Plenty! It feels like more than the quoted “495+” BHP. I think “Plus” could mean another 100 horses.

    Brands Hatch is a circuit where you need to thread the corners together and get into a rhythm. The C7R will provide an epic soundtrack!

    Stats, Tyres and Times:
    Tyres are slicks, compounds range from SuperHard to SuperSoft all at 26 psi
    Fastest lap is a 1.21.997 by Vrzl

    Back to back, on the same track?

    **The Corvette C7R has 495+bhp and weighs 1320kg**
    **The Camaro GT4R has 480bhp and weighs 1420kg**

    Assetto Corsa Competizione Challenge: Hotlap
    Car: Chevrolet Camaro GT4R
    Track: Brands Hatch
    Time: 17:00
    Weather: CLEAR
    Mike’s challenge this week is a “blast at Brands!”

    Quick question, it has been asked before, but always fun - how do you pronounce Camaro?

    In 1966, at its launch, the US motoring press asked Chevrolet, “what is a Camaro?” They were told it was a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.
    If you enjoy this week’s challenge, you can pop a Camaro GT4R on your Christmas list. $259,000 gets you a race-ready car, featuring a 480hp dry-sump 6.2-litre V8, Xtrac six-speed sequential transmission, lots of carbon fibre, fully adjustable suspension and a wind tunnel tested aero pack. The fuel and tyres may well double the bill!

    Ideal operating pressures are 26.5 (26.3- 27.2)

    After several days, my chances of improving at the green hell are minimal, so starting with the C7R (at first sight I had read CR7, what? Cristiano Ronaldo???)[​IMG]

    As Peggy11 has already written: it is a slow farewell to AC.
    Through the updates, ACC has become better and better. 1.6 has taken another (for me big) step towards driving fun. :)

    Here in AC the Corvette is for e.g. also really great at the beginning - then the sound, which is not as varied, and above all the much less communicative FFB is annoying.
    In the last few weeks I have started AC from time to time and, after the first happy minutes, put it aside in disappointment. :oops:

    Last two weeks: ACC vs AC 25h vs 2.5h o_O

    Well, that's the way things go.

    Now I'm looking forward to the Camaro - the beast that eats the curbs. :cool:

    It took me ages to get a complete decent lap, this car seems very understeery to me! Possibly the big hunk of engine sitting up front? :confused:

    @Totall Wrytoff - Is it possible to participate in ACC in practice mode? It is not an advantage compared to Hotlap, is it? Or am I missing something?

    Edit: Sorry, could be an advantage, cause optimal tyre pressures are possible. :oops:

    Hmm.... :confused:

    I lost a bit in the last sector - laptime below 1:21 is possible with some effort and tuning.

  16. It's not obvious where you lost the time in the last sector, looks typically smooth and controlled!:)

  17. @sissydriver , you may have answered your own question, I'm not sure and I'll defer to @mike reynolds for a decision on that.:)

    Managed to eliminate most of the brake locking but struggling through the corners. Not sure if it might be due to the car being left hand drive, although I've never noticed it being a problem in the past. I reduced the steering angle but still not perfect.

    brake locking sounds wrong to me. what abs and brake bias do you use? with 2 and 55.6% i have no locking. with all these electronics wizardry the actual gt3/gt4s should NOT struggle with brake locking with the correct settings.

    Rather than end my AC hotlap participation on a Nordschleife no show I thought I'd end it on a Brands Hatch slow show.

    A sedate lap in the winter dusk to wrap things up :)
