I have a setup question

I was on the server earlier with Ben after just a few laps at Zandvoort in the M1
we noticed a huge difference in tyre temperature
from left to right .....

Im no expert in setups how would you setup the car to allow for this
without affecting grip in the game ......

There is a huge difference after just a few laps ive never noticed this at
Zandvoort before is it related to track or M1 Mod .....

THX :top:

Well, there's a lot of corners to the right, and long ones so the left tyres will suffer a lot. I noticed this on other tracks and I don't think you can cure that, honestly

Yes that's because of all those long and fast right turns. Stiff suspensions help to absorb a small part of the energy and tires heat up a bit less but that won't cure the problem totally. You just have to manage the tires and slow down a bit when they're too hot, that's what real drivers do as well Smile

Try with higher graphic settings maybe scratch
If you're not using directx 9, that may be the problem too.

Seulement 10 tours d'entrainement avant la course hier soir sans descendre sous les 1'20, alors quand je vois Sasha en 1'20"3 en arrivant sur le serveur je me dit que ça sent le paté What a Face
Mais j'arrive quand meme à faire la pole avec un tour sorti de nul part, j'ai pas réussi à m'en approcher à moins de 4 dixiemes ensuite Suspect
Pour une fois j'ai pris un excellent départ (mais sans comprendre comment j'ai fait) et j'ai réussi à garder la tête au premier virage, ensuite la course fut plutot tranquille, aucune erreur meme s'il était assez facile d'en faire ici.
Victoire donc, la moitié du boulot est faite, il faudra faire pareil à Imola pour remporter le titre :raclure:

==================
Only 10 laps of training before the race, none of them under then 1'20s, so when I saw Sasha in 1'20"3 when coming on the server, it wasn't looking very good What a Face
But I still managed to take pole, my lap really was out of nowhere, I couldn't get near to it by less than 4 tenths after that Suspect
For the first time this season, i took a good start (still i'd like to understand how i did that) and managed to keep the lead at turn one. Then the race was pretty calm, I did no mistakes even if it was very easy to do one here.
So race won, half of the job is done, I will have to do the same at Imola to clinch the title here :raclure:

Comme d'habitude sale soirée procar Very Happy
Lors du tour de formation, je casse ma voiture pour éviter une voiture en travers au T1. Aucun intérêt à faire la course après, donc j'abandonne au bout de 3-4 tours.

Hier soir, il y avait 2 courses. les aliens devant, loin devant et les Autres derriere, loin derriere. Et j'ai gagné la course des Autres.
:first: de la courses des Autres c'est pas mal. Ca a été intéressant d'un bout à l'autre (Belle bagarre notamment avec Frank), c'est la 1ere fois que je m'amuse autant avec ce mod auquel, habituellement, je ne comprends rien.

Vivement la prochaine :yaa:

Was a good race overall, but disappointing for me again. I thought I could grab the pole considering my lap, which took me by surprise as I too hadn't practiced until earlier that day. I also knew what I had to do to beat it, I had beaten the sectors multiple times but couldn't string the whole lap together. Was up going into the final turn with about 2 minutes to go but bobbled on the last corner and killed it.

The race was quite simple, Gui drove away to my disappointment, watching 5 points leak away like that. I didn't drive as well as I should/could have. Some personal problems have had me distracted recently and I just couldn't tap into my deeper focus levels and just wasn't going as fast or as well as I needed to. I really wanted to win this race, but just didn't prepare well enough nor focus enough.

It's all up for grabs now, brilliant comeback from Gui, but I think Imola will be different, I owe it to myself.

My best race of the season so far, for the 1st time i was able to compete with Gui and Sasha both on qualy and race.
Qualified 3rd :third: , but in my last lap i was going to do the pole, but went wide at the chicane and lost 2 fatal tenths.
Had a decent start (first time ever on these cars) despite losing 3rd to Tiago.
I stayed close to him for the whole 1st lap, he went wide at the first corner and i was through, then i started to chase Sasha for 2nd, the gap was nearly the same until lap 10 (about 2 seconds) then i started to put some pressure on him closing to 1.4 secs, but i made a slight mistake at the damn chicane and lost about 2 secs and i wasn't able to close to him anymore.
Finished 3rd 9 secs behind Gui :third: and i have still a little chance to win the champ, must win at Imola with both Gui and Sasha out (nearly impossible lol! )

See you at Imola for the last round!!
