    The Mercedes 190E is quite a little racy machine and it feels really good at a track like Monza where it can stretch its legs. Too bad you can’t draft your ghost eh?


    RSR top time is 1.58.040. Back in June of 2018 I managed a 2.01.035. I am hoping to be able to spend a bit of time on the setup and get that time down by at least a second or more!


    Ideal Psi for all sets of tires is 29.

    Bentley drives surprisingly well for its ridiculous size. A few tweaks to pressures and camber so far, slightly softer springs and one click more rear bar. Might have to up the diff, well see. Still time on the table for sure. 2:01's easily I'm sure.

    Been away with work for two weeks and didn't have access to my wheel. Still feeling a bit rusty in driving terms and managed to put this lap together after a couple of tries. I always feel that a good time in Monza is always determined by how much you ride/cut the sausage kerbs in the chicanes and I cannot yet do this consistently without unbalancing the car too much.

    One tip I found(by mistake) that made braking in this car much better is to leave the downshifts as late as possible before turn in instead of gradually downshifting throughout the barking zone.
    I am not sure why this is happening, maybe someone more experienced can explain it :D

    It is like you say. The Mercedes reacts quite strangely to high revs and braking. I never really liked this car and Monza is not exactly my most beloved track either. I just never liked this stop and go flow to it. Watching Monza on TV is quite fun, but driving (all cars) always feels super off to me, boring even. There is like 2 corners that are fun to drive.

    In the meantime I added a Heusinkveld handbrake to my rig and replaced my Ascher USB plate with a wireless one. SO much better - jeez. Even though you might expect the difference to be small, it makes it feel so much more natural. Before the cable generated some kind of small resistance when turning and I always had to worry back in my head with fast turning I could rip the cable out - so a lot more worryfree now. Great update.

    Im not sure if one week is enough to find my confidence at Panorama lol. Only 5s slower than @SlowGrayAudi after two runs.

    It took me a long time to get confident around panorama. At least the Bentley is forgiving to drive.

    Turn 5 is flat (second right hander climbing up the mountain). I lift slightly into the left at the very top of the mountain (big gravel on right side). Dont lift completely. Keep the throttle at like 60-80% or you can swap the rear.

    Im still not great at the final downhill left onto the back straight. I feel like i always brake too late and loose time down the straight.

    I would be pretty happy to be that close to one of SlowGrayAudi’s times. :)

    You mean the replay itself or just the recorded video?

    You can use Nvidia Shadowplay for that or grab yourself a freeware software. There are plenty.

    I just figured out how to use nvidia shadowplay. Uploading to youtube now.

    Its taking forever to process!

    Here's the video. I think it worked. Lap was just a 2:02.334 but its close enough to the 2:01.9 to be relevant i think.

    1080p 60hz is processed, waiting on 4K to finish. Super slow

    Hopefully it can give you guys some references. Not an amazing lap but decent enough i hope.

    First shot and was aiming for within 5 seconds of Audi, managed under 3. I’m targeting a 2:03, that will be good result for me.

    Still all over the place and the walls have strange gravity in them.

    Question for the ACC players? Are you liking the "beat the pro" format? Or would you prefer to revert to the old hot stint or hot lap? If you want to keep going with the beat the pro, feel free to send me a link to any on-boards you'd like to have a go at (we need to wait for British GT championship to be released on console before we can use any from that season).

    Thanks

    Mike

    I like the beat the pro format much more than doing a 20+ min stint. Its a lot of time for people to invest. Often just leaving us to do have one or maybe two goes at it.
