    Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #228

    The Challenge:
    Car: Mazda Rx7
    Track: Silverstone International



    Crank up that negative camber and rail this little rocket around Silverstone International like you mean it! The excellent rotary engine provides a unique driving experience that is compelling and quick without requiring advanced driving skills to master. Silverstone international is quick lap thats got a couple of ‘hero’ corners that are impressive to try and take full out in VR, I’m not sure if I would be half as brave IRL. Either way it only takes a few laps to figure out this layout and nail a respectable laptime.

    RSR WR 1,15,200

    Ideal PSI - 33 for semi slicks, 39 for the other tires.

    This car sticks really well until it doesn't lol. Once it starts sliding its fairly easy to control but it scrubs off so much time! I ended up having to crank up the negative camber and all the positive toe. Once you set fuel, and tire psi, there's not much else to adjust. Just concentrate on being smoother than you think you already are.

    Great car - surely the definition of a classic sports car - light and superb handling.

    Trying to get rhe rig set up in the house today. Have to make some wood brackets to mount the tv on the wall.

    Going to downsize from a 65" to a 55".

    But it will be right behind my wheel base, as opposed to 8 feet away and 5 feet in the air. So it should be much more immersive!

    First crack at this in an unfamiliar car. Took a few laps to get used to it - 35 down to a 31 - and give myself a good starting point.

    55" TCL 6 series. The 65" is going in the living room. Same exact tv just different sizes.

    Very oversteery on corner entry. Need to tame that a bit with setup. Also tire pressures were a little high so i can do better.

    Best lap was invalid at the second chicane.

    Got my pressures to 27.5psi all around. Lowered the rear by 2mm, added 2 clicks rear camber. Brake bias 57%

    Much more stable on corner entry.

    Great combi @Pretend racer
    Seconds left on the table, I'm posting my warm up laps in appreciation....;):D

    I was surprised to find the NSX EVO actually had a pointy front end!

    I dont think ive ever had to dial OUT the oversteer before!

    Thd car is nice to drive, even with fairly stiff springs on such a bumpy track.

    Great combo!

    A sedate lap to start with, I think there's a few more tenths to be had. I'll try and find them :D

    I need to get the tyre pressures spot on and reduce fuel a smidge then hopefully I can get a low 1:30

    That is proper DIY :):) You just need to expand the wooden frame so it can fit your chair so it does not move around :)

    I just upgraded something too. From RTX 3080 to 3080 Ti and from 32:9 monitor to 3x32 monitor :D. Will post results here.
