Generic Weekly Hotlap Challenge #223 AWD Twins? Beat the pro in the Lambo

    Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #223 AWD Twins? And Beat the Pro in a Lambo

    The Challenge:
    Car: Toyota Celica ST185 4wd Turbo and Audi R8 V10 Plus
    Track: Zandvoort




    Time for some awd drive action on Zandvoort which is imo the second best “rally” course we have, besides Laguna of course. Now at first glance the Toyota Celica rally car and the Audi R8 V10 don’t look anything like twins. In fact the only thing they really share in common is that they are both 4wd vehicles. But when you put them both on the same track they can produce identical lap times. The goal here will be to match your laptimes with both cars. Smallest difference wins the trophy!

    I did a few laps in each car with the stock settings (I upped the gearing in the celica though, and turned off tc in the audi), and my lap times were within 3 tenths of each other. According to RSR our lap time hero Goodgame has the record for both cars; Toyota Celica - 1.50.853, and in the Audi R8 - 1.58.007. The difference is less than 2 tenths!

    Ideal PSI
    Audi R8 33 psi
    Toyota Celica 29 psi

    I never got the idea why they built the R8. I mean it is far too heavy to be a real sportscar in my opinion. So if it is not a real spotscar, what is its purpose?
    You can feel the weight in every corner and it pushes the car off the track at each turn in. It should have been more dedicated right from the start, like the more extreme versions of the R8.

    Never driven the lambo before. Should be fun.

    This track is absolutely awesome to drive in VR with the banks and elevation changes.

    The lap itself was a bit scruffy, but it really took me a long time to get to below 1:53s.

    I felt that changing the setup really made a difference for this car and only then did I manage to get low 1:52s.

    Trail braking is also very difficult in this car, but it is so important for a good time in Zandvoort in order to rotate the nose of the car quickly during the hairpins/ long turns.

    Pressures dialed in, 27.7 front 27.5 back. Default aggressive no tweaks yet.

    Default aggressive setup isnt quite my taste. Needs some tweaking.

    This is a tricky little combo to try and figure out. I had to play around with the suspension a bit and I finally got it feeling pretty good but not great. It still seems to slide too much. I set my pb in the 1.53's. When I looked on RSR I noticed that everyone ahead of me had a higher top speed, I was maxing out the gearing I was using. I figured the only way they were going faster was to use the longer gearing so I did too. After a couple of laps I was going quicker. I noticed the engine seemed to run out of steam on the top end so I started short shifting at 7000rpm. That seemed to help a lot. After looking at the engine chart I think the ideal rpm range is 3000-6000rpm. I'll try shifting at 6000rpm next time.

    The lap is kinda sloppy so I think I can trim a few tenths off, its really easy to overdrive the car and sliding costs so much time!

    Setup is shown at the end of the vid.

    Haha! I cant wait to move into the new house in a couple of weeks. I'll have the main basement area as my sim rig/gaming room. So I'll have lots more privacy down there than on our current apartment.

    I had to have a go in AC since its one of my beloved Audi's

    Im so bad in AC its stupid. They physics feel almost fake and floaty after playing ACC. ACC has officially ruined all other driving games for me.

    First crack at this, and first run in the Evo, pretty happy as a kick-off time. I am going to aim for a low 43 I think for this one.

    Messed up a bit in the last two corners but the lap was solid until that point. Thanks to @Pretend racer for the tip to have higher gearing and shift at 6000-7000rpm, really made a difference. The rest of my setup is very similar to yours, just a bit more aggressive. I attach it to this post so others can try it.
