    Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #236

    The Challenge: Hotlap
    Car: Praga R1
    Track: Spa



    I’m sure most of you have heard of Jimmy Broadbent - shed racer. Well, he’s upgraded his virtual Praga R1 for the real thing. Simracing is all about living vicariously through other people, this week we’ll step into Jimmy’s shoes. His has lived the sim racing fairy tale. The latest race was held at Silverstone. We have been there recently so I figured no one would complain if we raced at Spa instead!

    RSR WR 2.21.967
    Ideal psi 28

    How to take part - Hot lap:

    To enter, select Drive > Hotlap, choose the Praga R1 and the Spa Circuit. Please setup the session using the settings below:

    This is excellent after the Mazda!:) The time is no doubt slow, it is a Sunday drive, I haven't even done the tyre pressures but it felt good.

    Interesting to see the holiday choices above..... I am not going tropical, but I will have plenty of horsepower.:D

    Had never driven this car, I thought it had more power, but has lots of grip. The rear gets unstable if you attack too much the taller curbs, at least on standard setup.[​IMG]

    2.26.668 - Typo lol, thanks for keeping me honest!
    2.22.668 - correct lap time

    This car sticks really well until it doesn't. When it lets go its pretty snappy and hard to catch. I started with the stock setup and then just tried to get the aero as low as possible. After that I got the gearing sorted. Then I worked on the camber and toe using the Camber Extravaganza app. Once I had that set, I fiddled with the arb's and spring rates, to dial in the amount of slip I wanted. I needed to lower the diff power to get rid of some of the understeer while acclerating. I also lowered the whole car for better aero. Turns out I ended up getting the best first sector on RSR. But my second sector is pretty slow compared to everyone else who has similar laptimes to me on rsr. I tried a couple of laps with the aero turned up a bit but it just slowed me down all over the track instead of letting me go faster in the second sector.

    I found this lap guide done by Riley Gallardo for the SRS Fixed series (default setup except for brake bias and pressure). It might help some people out...

    Tricky car with the sudden snaps. Difficult to catch like someone above mentioned. Had to tweak the setup a little. Lots more time in it, just did a few laps since I haven played in days. Been itching!!

    Best lap 1:48.216

    Wet tires

    I'm here for the party. Car handles well, but tires are getting hot the last two laps. Had to incuse a lot more oversteer with the setup.

    6 Laps

    Best lap was a 1:48.054

    Apparently i enjoy the wet conditions

    More rear height, more front ducts. Better driving.
