    I also posted this in the 24 Minutes of Le Mans - easy Win with Rocket '07 thread.

    Audi R8 LMP '01 with turbo is a very easy win.
    Other than turbo, and brake bias tweak for 0 ABS...
    ...no other tuning done. RS tires the whole way.

    Tip: If you don't do well in the dark...
    ...follow P1 or P2 for extra illumination.
    When the sun comes up and rain recedes step on it.

    I used a T500 wheel with no driving aids/0 ABS.

    Fully tuned Sauber C9, started with Racing Soft tires and kept going till I ran out of fuel. I pitted a total of two times but in the last lap my fuel ran out towards the end of the race, 5-6 turns before the finish line. Fortunately I had a huge lead over the opponents...if the wet is less than 70% there is no reason to use rain tires in my opinion, Racing Soft tires do the job perfectly.

    I think something is wrong with the values they use for Intermediate and HR tires.

    Intermediates performed worse in all Super events than RS when there was any precipitation.

    I ended up using RS for every event after some initial tries, Super rain/tire values need some calibration.

    I also ran into multiple instances where no precipitation registered on indicator, but it was pouring...

    ...and the car was slip-sliding away on low-wear RS, with huge increase needed for braking zones.

    Are there these time changing endurance races for all time shifting tracks eg. Bathurst, Spa etc?

    Just ran it again, this time with the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP maxed out to 1144hp. There's something extremely satisfying about whistling past the Sauber C9 at 261mph on the Mulsanne straight.

    It's as if PD spent time remodeling the tire wear and re-doing how rain affects things, when those were things they already had a pretty good grasp of in GT5. It disturbs me how much time they spend fixing things that weren't broken, and not fixing the things that were and still are.

    Give it a little time, I am sure they have a lot on their plate. :)
    Hopefully they will tweak it sooner than later...not too much later.
    They are obviously keeping tabs on the www, payouts have been vastly improved. :tup:

    It's still early, but for me the fastest lmp1 seems to be the Peugeot 908. 1165 bhp. @4k rpm this thing is definetly a monster. Found it had better handling than the other Lmps and had rediculous speed. The first time i drove it i couldn't belive a 1165hp car could only hit 220 with max downforce. However since I was using the mid range turbo, the hp is spiked around 3500-5000 rpm. With long and I mean long gears, this thing is a true rocket down the mulsanne. Works twice as good if you are able to drive in manual, and keep the revs down. Should have good fuel economy too for lemans prototypes due to the low revs once again. Highly recommend geting the base model as you are not only able to paint the body, but also the rims and number.

    Used the 2013 Deltawing and maxed out the downforce as well as equipped with medium tyres. You're able to race the Deltawing and get away without having to make a pitstop as it's very forgiving on the tyres and fuel.
    Keep a consistent and fast pace, primarily through cornering as quickly and as smoothly as possible, and it's an easy win

    I did it with a minolta with high turbo, race soft, had to pit every two laps since it drinks a lot, no problems with tyres.
    I tried to save fuel and do a 3-4 laps stint but i had to go too slow.

    I use the bigger turbo - it seems to help hustle down the straights faster, and the car doesn't lack for torque as it is. I was pulling to 230mph without draft, and hitting the cutoff at 261mph if I could cop a draft from someone.

    But yeah, the 908 has become my weapon of choice for LeMans. The Pescarolo '05 is good as well, but a bit more twitchy on braking and turn-in. It too is wicked fast down the straights, though, and if anything pulls more strongly above 200mph than the 908 when you use the big turbo on both.

    I'm probably going to use either the HSV-010 or the Monster SX4 for this.

    Audi R8 Race Car '01:

    3 pit stop strategy. Crossed the finish line in the pit lane at 23:50 to begin the seventh lap, then proceeded to win by 2 seconds because I cruised throughout the last lap.

    The Monster SX4 has no lights.

    OT-ish: Somehow, the idea of 24 minutes of Le Mans reminds me of this underrated arcade game:

    Pescarolo i used, did the first stint of 3 laps with racing int on rear wheels and racing med on front. On 2nd stint i did another 3 laps but this time racing soft on front and racing med on rear. Last stint of only 1 lap racing soft for both. Came 1st and about 50 sec advantage, try to be careful on the 1st stint as it spins easily.

    Did it with my Sauber C9 with Turbo fitted, i don't remember what was the tune exactly. I pit in the lap 3 I think then i finished the race with 7 laps.

    I love doing this race in my stock Audi R18. Start off on RS tyres and pit at the end of lap 4 for another set of RS tyres and some fuel to take me to the finish. Only 1 stop needed and it's an easy win!

    Stock Speed 8 Bentley is the way I did/do it.:tup: Despite the surface wetness, I use RMs over IMs. First 3 laps then the other 3 are RMs. Then there's a catch. I tend to come to the end of my 6th lap just mere seconds before the 24minutes are up. And the gap I make up from the AI which is in 2nd is almost exactly the time remaining. I also wouldn't have enough fuel or tires remaining to make the extra lap. One time I tried to cross the line right at the exact moment the time ran out and before the AI passed and ended up losing out by 0.2secs. From there I decided it was too risky and did it over this time with a 3rd stint on the final lap with RSs and enough fuel to take me through.

    I use the Delta Wing (the chrome plated one) with the high RPM turbo added. I used a tuning setup I found somewhere here, though I see there's one in the tuning section now that I imagine would probably work. Anyhow, run on racing softs the whole way around, only need one pitstop for fuel (tire wear is extremely minor in that car). Love it, very easy to drive even will all assists off (ABS on 1). It's not the fastest car but it more than makes up for it with its one pitstop.

    Toyota 7 with the big turbo. Don't really need the big turbo but I had put it on to win the last Like The Wind race so I left it on. The car does 3:32 laps. Pit at the end of laps 3 and 5.

    Easy win (50+ seconds) if you don't mind almost 2 laps of pitch dark driving...

    I won this race with a Mazda 787B w/stage one engine, tough to handle but its enough to overthrew the Pescarolo, Nissan R92CP and the R8 LMP.

    That car reminded me of a car in GT1-GT2

    It is that car, yes. Although by default, Le Mans 24 (the arcade game I posted) uses the pink Clarion livery. ;)

    I haven't found the Deltawing to be fast at all. I put full downforce at the rear and no stops and about 1/2 way i'm 15th.

    I used the formula GT...the pitch black laps are intense.

    HEEEEELLL no they weren't!! I remember in 5 that I could get two laps around the Nord in a GT500, RS, no wheels pin at all, and really good times. Then some update came out which KILLED tire wear, and then I could only do a half lap around the Nord. I begged for them to create a selector to choose how fast you want the tires to degrade. That came and I was actually surprised.

    BUT!! The tires are still crap. We all should be able to go around Le Mans on a set of tires for 45 minutes and it's ridiculous that some of the top LMP 1's are left with every three-five lap pit stops.

    Good point - GT3 or maybe GT4 had a better grasp of tire wear, I think.
