Generic Weekly Hotlap Challenge 225 - Hatched Beemer and a British Merc

Discussion in 'Console Lounge' started by Pretend racer, May 8, 2021.

    Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #225

    The Challenge:
    Car: BMW M3 GT2

    Track: Brands Hatch GP



    After last week’s overpowered and oversteery car and track combo I thought it would be good to get back to some downforce on a familiar track that everyone seems to like. The gt2 is a race car and the sharp handling and electronic aids help it stick to the track very well. Brands Hartch is a great track with a lot of elevation changes, blind corners and world famous pedigree. Hope you enjoy this weeks combo.

    If you have suggestions for combos please let me know and I will try to accommodate any requests!

    Ideal PSI for all tires is 26 front, 27 rear.

    RSR WR 1.23.165

    I know Snetterton doesn't get much love compared to some of the other British tracks, but I really like it , lots of really challenging corners.

    Definitely challenging. Brundle into Nelson is always tricky, and always seems to go a little pear shape when the rest of your lap has gone well!

    I think I've done like 5 laps around snetterton just to get my 3 stars there. Will definitely be a challenge

    AC feels crisp and tight compared to ACC on Ps4. Wish we'd have a change to use correct fov atleast!

    I found a tune for laguna seca and tweaked it a bit. Setup is at the end of the video. Took me a few laps to get used to the brakes as I was locking them up too much. I tried lowering the aero but it just made me slide more so I increased the aero and I went a bit quicker. Not sure how I can find a half second or so to catch @local_man1234. Gonna have to tweak the setup a bit more and try some different lines in a few corners.

    I used WJL's nurburgring setup as a start. Worked well @Pretend racer

    Amazing @SlowGrayAudi !!! Congrats to your new home.

    I am looking to buy a house too ( and have my own room for simracing). The prices are just too damn high - it's ridiculous.



    I agree with @Pretend racer that the car is very sensitive on the brakes. I moved the bias to 61% I think. But then again I never liked GT cars without ABS - you got TC but no ABS?

    Congrats on the house, I hope you’ll both be very happy there.

    Great challenge choice, @Pretend racer ! Really enjoyed driving a relatively new racing car for once in AC :D

    I am actually a bit surprised at how easily I achieved this time given some comments I read in this thread. It took me around half an hour to get it. Maybe this car just suits my driving style a bit more than others.

    To achieve this time I used almost basic setup, only changes I made is to lower the car a bit, adjust PSI and move brake bias down to 61% to avoid locking up everytime I press the brake pedal ( thanks @GoodGame.eXistenZ for the tip )

    I used to love this car in AC, but it's just not the same since I sold my Fanatec GT2 rim!

    Thanks @GoodGame.eXistenZ Its been such a struggle. We got lucky and our appraiser was trash and appraised it $23,000 under what we bid. Lucky for us the seller still gave us the house for that price after we agree to add $5000 on top in cash. So we saved $18,000 from our original bid. But that was already $41,000 over asking. So its been tough but its well worth it.

    Are you in the US? Its definitely a seller's market but we struck gold with this find. It was listed very low compared to similar Houses in the area.

    Thanks @TinPeach

    Germany - Price for decent house near town is 700.00 - 800.000 €. Average income is 47.000 € or so. Despite having two good incomes the market is a mess. Some house comes online, after 1h or so there are like 5.000-10.000 clicks on the ad and it is gone. You have to be on the lookout at all times or you do not stand a chance really....

    Thats crazy!

    Here houses last about a week online. Once they have their showings or open houses they sell the first weekend they're on the market. My realtor bid on a house for a buyer $60,000 over asking price and they still didnt win the bid. It sold for over $100,000 over asking. Its stupid right now.

    Luckily i live in the Midwest where housing prices are much lower than on the coasts. Average here is probably $250,000-$350,000 where i live.

    Where i used to live in Virginia and Hannah is from California. Average there are both over $800,000. But you dont make triple income just because you live there. Its so crazy.

    Managed to get some laps in. Might be very few more this week.

    Not great at this track or with this car. Very understeery for me and the rear end doesn't offer too much confidence right off the bat.
