Generic WHL #161 The Orange Box

    Welcome to W.H.C. 161: The Orange Box

    "So here I stand once more, in the playground of the broken hearts"

    I must admit I didn't think I'd ever be doing this again. Some say never look back, always move on. Others may argue to never say never again.

    Enough about the ladies though, on with the Weekly.

    Hotlap Challenge :
    McLaren 650S GT3 at Spa Francorchamps



    At the end of November GTSport surprised me with a gift car. Unable to make my mind up for which car to choose for this challenge I decided to go with it.

    Most folks tend to enjoy Spa. This car is easy to get around here but as ever the talented will always be faster. I like to do a long run with it; an hour or so against the AI. They leave me for dead at the start but as I get into a rhythm I can reel them in lap by lap and get back into the mix. The total opposite of hotlapping I know but that is the only way I ever improve.

    RSR leaderboard times start at 2m14.

    I doubt the new game will ever come to ps4 or xb1 so this is as close to Console Competizione that we're likely to get.

    Please remember that #160 with the BMW at Mugello is still open until 6pm UK Sunday evening. (Dec 12) I'm a bit early posting this but I'm off out for a bit.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    First few laps, on soft tyres, 26psi all round.
    Great fun combi! Relief in fact... my left knee has a bit of RSI from the clutch pedal action, so right foot only is perfect.

    Had another one-legged go at this enjoyable combi.
    Can anyone with the PC app see, or even better, publish the torque and power curve for the McLaren 650SGT3, please?
    Sometimes the (ridiculous regulation) engine restrictors mean shorter shifting is better. Feels like a flat one to me.

    Am I the only playing in the playground of broken hearts?
    Not for the first time then, welcome to the story of my life!:D:p:cool:

    If you meant torque, you'd be right, but the power curve (if the graph is correct!) is very much a "drag it right to the limiter" kind of curve I reckon ;)

    I used Leejaeyoon qualifying tune from the setup market. I ended up adding one click of rear wing because it was a little loose for me. Setup at the end of the vid.

    I did mean to have another go at the BMW on Sunday but in the end there was racing to be done :)

    Well as you know GT3 is not my favourite, and McLarens are near the bottom of the list for me too. But SPA.. now we are talking!
    Took the setup advice as prescribed by Dr Zeuss, nice setup, felt good and fast too, great find!
    2 laps in, 2.18.8, restarted and corrected PSI then hit this one first go. Screenshotted and another restart and was about 0.2 up but lost it entering the final chicane so ALT F4 was deployed. McLarens...****.... :D

    Ok. My merry band of gypsys, tramps & thieves haven't arrived for work yet so I have time to do a leaderboard.

    Fortunately TW is no longer on his own so Mr. Coverdale can be put back in his box. Orange or otherwise.
