    This is a fun little car on a fun little track. I got some new sim racing gear and I wanted to concentrate on trail braking and throttle control. I think this is the perfect combo for that.

    RSR WR 58.164
    Not a very popular combo with only 11 people registering times on RSR...

    Ideal PSI for Semi Slicks
    30 Front
    32 Rear

    Quick session with standard setup and tanks at 3/4 full. The car is fun to drive, lots of coasting through the corners.

    PC parts have been ordered. Hard decision on the video card, given the current prices... I went for the Radeon 6600xt, I think it was a reasonable cost to the performance it delivers.[​IMG]

    Still trying to tweak the ergonomics of the whole rig, let alone all the wheel settings themselves. I haven't tried any different pedal configurations yet or tried tweaking the pedals software yet either. This is gonna take quite a bit more time to get it all perfect than I thought lol.


    I managed to set a laptime just slightly slower with my f1 wheel the other day. Today was the first day I tried out my round wheel. So many options now, its kinda crazy.
     
  7. LOL!! That was my first thought too!:D
    But in fact it should be required driving, it is a great exercise in deftness.

    @SlowGrayAudi , thanks for info, unfortunately I was unaware of that difference... however, considering that comparable geforces here in my country are about 30 to 40% more expensive, I don't think it was too bad. Not to mention that anything imported here is way more expensive than in U.S. or Europe, 850 USD for the 6600xt, that gives you an idea... while a 3060ti is equivalent to about 1100 USD.

    My goal for now is to achieve no less than 60fps at 1080 resolution, I think the 6600xt can handle that.

    Thats a terrible markup! I got my 3070 suprim x for $900 so i cant talk much. I stood outside microcenter in -5 degree weather for an hour and got lucky. They had 13 cards and i was like #12 in line.

    Where are you located?

    I’m still in two minds about taking the PC route.

    I don’t really want the extra fiddling PC’s inevitably bring, it’s enough of a pain working and updating my laptop. But, the mods available on AC make it hugely tempting - some really superlative stuff out there.

    To cloud the situation further, Kunos announced an actual XSX/PS5 version of ACC is in development (and a free upgrade) - for release in Feb. From the preview, it seems to include all the bells and whistles from the PC version this time - so may wait to see how this turns out - combined with the severe shortage of PC parts (which will probably get worse as the automotive’s put pressure on manufacturing/supply chains to solve their semi-conductor issues).

    @TinPeach Spending 50% of your allotted gaming time performing windows upgrades, undoing windows upgrades, fiddling with in game graphic settings, fiddling with graphic card settings, installing graphic card updates, undoing graphic cards updates, performing FPS benchmarking, trialing full screen V windowed mode V 1080p V 1444 V 4K, worrying whether your CPU or GPU is bottlenecking your FPS and thinking about which one to upgrade first, trialing Freesync V Gsync and editing .ini files is half the fun of sim racing on PC!

    Well, when you put it like that, I’m not sure what I was ever worried about??

    You can always move to America. Where its just expensive but things seem to balance out decently.

    I havent touched any settings on my pc in months. Once you get it setup its pretty easy and quick. With steam and the fps overlay its easy yo tell how well it runs once you're in game.

    Dont get discouraged. Pcs aren't difficult

    Super lost on this setup. I went with a dry setup on wets, but its not nice to drive. Will definitely have to do lots of experimenting.

    edit: After some changes its better to drive, but still not great.

    I tried on slicks and thats a no go for sure. Wets are the correct tire to be on.

    glad you said that, I had quick practice couple of laps when picking the challenge, on standard Safe set up and was surprised how tricky it was on slicks, which are normally just about OK in light rain conditions. Busy week at work this week though so not been back for a proper run yet.

    Yeah, same here.

    Just had a quick spin, literally, using slicks. I’ll swap to wets and have another run see what’s what.
