With fast internet maybe.

HWK, I stalked your profile. The Dean Canto you lost a Mazda race to at Aida Okayama is an Aussie V8 Supercar driver. Cool

Good race, Rack.

Wat!? Cool

Edit: Oh yeah, I remember that race. I was running in 2nd, juggled it a bit on the last lap and got driven through by the guy in 3rd. Spun, no chance to recover. Barely got it across the line in 5th. I raced that guy a bit at the start of the race though. What a Face

You need to do some Grand Touring Cup races at Laguna Seca to move up to C class.

Thanks Biker, looks like you're well on your way to the top. I'm fairly pleased with my performance so far, just ran at Okayama with some A and B drivers mixed in the field, started 1st and ran 3rd. Got a nice + bump in IR and SR.

Hey Clackstin, where did you end up setting your G25 on FF, DMP, and BFC ? I feel like I'm off just a little bit under braking compared to the fastest drivers I've encountered (got arse kicked by).

My in-game ff varies by car - Mazda almost 40, Solstice about 33, street stock 20 all feel similarly strong. Brake force curve is 1.8 but I haven't played with it yet. They feel pretty weak but that's okay as they'll really point the car if you trail brake at all. At Okayama I only brake hard enough for ABS briefly into turn 1, the rest of the track I brake just lightly enough to avoid ABS coming on. In the Solstice the ABS is much more gentle so I get fully into it in any hard braking zone.

In the logitech profiler options --> global device settings: effects 106% spring 0% damper 100% centering spring unchecked, report combined pedals unchecked, degrees of rotation 900, allow game to adjust settings checked.

Thanks, I don't seem to have ABS on the Mazda, wheels are locking instantly. I'm set at 1.8 BFC as well. Could I somehow have ABS off ?

When you say locking, is your wheel shaking like mad? That's ABS. To feel a car with non-ABS brake lockup, try the Caddy.

I mean tire -melting, screeching, sliding thru the braking zone if I don't release the pedal instantly. That kind of lock up.

Well that's no ABS for sure. You've been using the Cup version, and I've been using the Roadster version, so there's the difference.

I'll be in that as one as well (10:30 on the West Coast). Will be my warmup for the 12:00 Grand Am race.

I ran another GA race last night and it went much better than the first. I broke away to hold on to second until the leader pitted on lap 5 and retired, leaving me to build on my gap to the rest as I watched for Protos in my mirror. 41 mins of incident free driving were interrupted by my spotter telling me I had 5 laps of fuel left... not enough. I started soft pedaling it, not knowing what the pit delta was, but with 3mins to go I was showing 1.0 laps of fuel. I had a 38 second lead, I should've been goood to go... I dove in for a splash but I didn't realize I had not unchecked the tires. In my frustration pulling out I spun the tires and hit the pit wall, giving me bent steering. In my frustration over that I forgot the pit lane speed limit. They want a 17 second stop and go. I exited the pits in 2nd place by 2.5, and the guy wasn't very fast. I ignored the black flag the first time around, but the second time my spotter warned me I'd be dq'd, so I pitted to end the last lap. I crossed the line before my stall and didn't have to serve my penalty, so that's good to know. Twisted Evil

A good race, shame I spoiled my chances. Lessons learned.

That was fun. Snagged a spot at the end there thanks to an off by the 4th place car in the tight right hander. Finished 4th behind Martin in 3rd

Good stuff. Very Happy

8L of fuel being enough to do 20 laps in it, not sure what that gave me for lap times under a full tank, but half fuel gave me .6 from full fuel (I Q'd on half fuel after practicing on full fuel). Press F4 for fuel when on track. Space bar to uncheck 'add fuel' just in case you pit. It shows an estimate for laps possible, which was accurate enough for my race. Also press F5 and uncheck tires (uncheck with space bar, down arrow for next tire) during grid in case you have to pit for damage. 'Garage' in the race screen before you go on track is where you take fuel out.

I got all that stuff figured, and even have it all mapped to my wheel, but in that GA race I thought I had unchecked everything, but hadn't... gotta earn this name every once in a while. Rolling Eyes

Turns out both Mazdas have ABS, Rooster was just lifting at first tire squeal like it's GT5. Razz

I liked the gearing of the Cup better than the roadster, needing 5th on the straight is a small price to pay for not needing 2nd anywhere.

edit: +.58 SR, nice bump for incident free.

Hmm, I've run both and I am pretty sure that both have ABS... study

Tire squeal is exaggerated in iRacing to make up for the fact that you can't really 'feel' the tires slip the way you would in a real car. Might be why it seems like it's angry with you under braking?

Edit: I see that I've been tree'd... Laughing

Oh, fun fact I discovered last night: If you take a left at Turn 2 at Okayama, the whole circuit is out there and you don't even get an 'Off Track' for going out there. Cool Amusing tidbit I discovered while helping a friend improve his lap times. Full course is a bit boring in a Mazda, but I am sure in something with a bit more speed it'd be good.

I wandered out that way during post-race shutdown once, thought it was neat there's no fake tire wall blocking it.

Just had my first wanker moment. Got brake checked middle of the straightaway, cost me a 4x. Evil or Very Mad
