Generic WHL 177 Standing on the shoulders of Giants

    Welcome to the thread for WHL 177.

    Porsche 911GT3 RS.
    Spa.

    20200502_163438.jpg

    Sergeant William Henry Robinson died in 1917. He was 23 years old.

    Recently married, he never met the son who grew up to be my grandfather.

    He is one of 35,942 names remembered on the Arras Memorial, men who have no known grave.

    Every May my father & I make the pilgrimage to northern France to pay our respects. Unfortunately this year circumstances will prevent this.

    There are no French circuits in console AC. Spa is probably the nearest, in a country equally synonymous with the Great War.

    So, after TW, LG and myself played this combo online last week, I figured this forum was a place where I could tell William's story; an unlikely corner of the internet where he may be remembered.

    It is fitting that this is a German car. Those ordinary blokes from Berlin and Dusseldorf deserve to be remembered too.

    ---

    So here it is. Did you ever hear the one about the American, the Englishman and the Scot who went for a Spa weekend? Well, it went a little bit like this...



    By the way, this is the board from WHL 65. Porsche 911R/Spa. The GT3RS is faster.

  3. That's an extremely touching and poignant intro Moody.

    We can now all pay our respects to Sergeant William Henry Robinson and as you say, all those millions like him.

    Very well said.

    Great intro! And great to hear your story @moodyryder . I am actually interested in WW2 and also WW1 topics, visited many memorials across Europe myself. I cannot image how war must feel like, surely I got very emotional when visiting Auschwitz last year. May this never happen again.

    Fantastic combo. Will be glad to revisit.

    Thanks for sharing the story of your great grandad, @moodyryder - touching indeed. And we think we have it tough right now...
    As for this combo, wow, struggling to figure out how Philippe could have managed a 2:33 in a slower car :-S
    I think I must be leaving about 5 seconds on the table but damned if I can figure out where they are. For a high powered car it's a wee bit ponderous - had a hell of a time persuading it not to understeer (conduct unbecoming of a 911!). Let's see what setup tips the fast people can produce :D

    Quick run out to enjoy.
    Stock and no attempt to sort tyre pressures yet.
    As @Neilski says, generous understeer at the moment, but I think this is 2/10ths faster than our race evening:)

    Goodness Moody, that's very touching. It's unfortunate that you and your Dad can't pay your respects in person this year, but for what it's worth I don't think I will ever forget this story.

    Well, I'm glad to see the times aren't dramatically faster than WHL #65! :)
    To my surprise, the tyre pressures didn't even need a tweak - they started a wee bit high but settled down to exactly the nominal levels. They wear down disappointingly quickly though, given how rubbish the grip levels are!

    I'm near-clueless about setup, so this should be treated with a pinch of salt: I dropped the height to minimum and front ARB to 0, went to neutral toe on the rear and negative (actual) at the front, slightly more camber on the front, TC off and tweaked the fuel.
    I expected to be able to drop the wing to 0 (or whatever the minimum was) but when I tried, I couldn't keep it on the road! Anything lower than 3 was slower for me...

    Pretty much stock besides (tire pressure / fuel and rideheight 12) but she understeers. You really need to wait before going on the power.

    So, as promised. Did not forget to take a screenshot this time ;) . I drove the last WR in 2018 I think with a 2:33:013 or so. Now I improved by 1.1 seconds on my 6th lap. Eau Rouge can be taken 0.1 seconds faster. Lost 0.1 seconds in the last chicane. So theoretically, a 2:31:6xx is possible. It is planted like a GT3 car, so position it and justr hit the gas. I went for 1 ARB front, 2 back. -2 camber front, -2,5 at the back. Toe 3 back and 0 ride height. As pointed out here, don't take off too much wing.

    In the meantime, I could not resist an grabed a super ultra wide 32:9 monitor @5120:1440 to replace my "old" 34" LG 21:9 monitor @2560x1080.
    I am really excited to see how i performs with AC and ACC with my Nvidia 2080. Surely I will need an upgrade soon to handle all the pixels :O
