    Yep got that one and a heap more, one of my biggest problems is seeing the track. Maybe I should wear binoculars.

    It's mainly my eyes, had cataracts treated and now I have kind of 3 levels of vision, up close, computer distance and distance which is good but the tv is kind of in no man's land. But if you like that tune try Wedjim's version, it suits me better.

    Thank you! :bowdown: I finally was able to gold this with your tune, I managed a 3:12.464 and I am still finding time. My goal here is to break into the 3:10's now.

    @hotsaucer's tune for the 2J is good as well, with a little more practice with it I could match my time with the 905B.

    You're fantastic with the 2J, but if I have my wheel and I'm used to it Be afraid. Be very afraid.:p, I can make a 3:05 with AT gears and my pad.

    No serious :gtpflag:... Can you testing what time you made with a controller and AT gears with the 2J? Maybe a 3:05? I use traction off in this one. AS on. I wonder what time you make.

    Take it easy :lol: I get NEVER close to the top 1000 you say, i tell you: I'm in the top 250. Why so Mad???

    And you can not read well, I say: Am I the only one who drives better with the 2J THAN a other car. I get my fastest times with the 2J here, I'm not saying I'm the fastest with it.....

    Here's one for the near 60's and over. 3.04.1 PO44
    Damn the ,1, now will have to go for a 3.03. Racing in AT not comfortable with manual. Would it really make much difference??

    3.04.068 that's just cruel. PO42

    Can anyone suggest the most apt tune for the 2J?

    I prefer driving this car to the 905.

    finally! 3:13.857. C60, auto, ABS 1. All others off. Man, what a relief. Will switch to manual to try to shave off a second (or two?).

    I'm sick and tired of your bragging, that's why... and you made #2 on my ignore-list, because I'm also sick and tired of looking at the Picture of Maxi Verstappen (who destroyed yet another Red Bull yesterday on their home turf).
    Godd bye and good luck!

    I wouldn't use the avatar as a reason to ignore someone. That's just nitpicking.

    That said, @Kossie isn't lying about his lap times AFAIK, although I couldn't do the time trial in the 2J. I think the real flaw of the 2J, as god-like as it is, is it doesn't have any downforce. There are a lot of bumps on Sarthe that the 2J can't resist if it hits them. I've had many a lap screwed up by the big bump before the first chicane. That just means I have that much more respect for the people who can control a 1,040 HP monster like it around Le Mans.

    There are several Tunes for the 2J on page 1 of this thread:
    https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/thre...de-la-sarthe-2013.347231/page-2#post-11425153
    Humble me, I cannot handle this car on this track, drove the Pescarolo so far but changed to the Peugeot 905B EVO1 Bis LM 1992 where I did a decent 3:09,564 today, not bad for a Geezer @ 64 years!?
    See the below video, the Tune is at the end of the video (if someone is interested at all, perchance).
    Initial Final is 4,000 BTW...



    1.) I did not ignore Kossie because of his avatar mainly (I ignore Max Verstappen for that). :D I ignore him for his permanent bragging which I'm too old to take any longer.
    2.) You must be right with what you said about the 2J @ Le Mans, because when I drove it in the a-spec-expert-level-historic-racing-car-challenge-mount-panorama-motor-racing-circuit, it worked like a charm there! But I can't drive it @ Le Mans, as much as I like the car and the track!

    I haven't seen Kossie bragging. To me, bragging is along the lines of "I'm better than you! I did 'X' thing better, bla bla."

    Personal experience with the 2J (over 6,000 miles) tells me it's better on flat tracks.

    Edit: @S_Bridge I meant wing-induced downforce. I know it has mechanical means of downforce, but it has nothing to push itself to the ground at speed outside of the vacuum.

    This track takes so much time if it goes red and constant restarting feels so unproductive. So I went in under my alias, which I hadn't gotten gold under yet. I know the tune I like now on the Puegot and improved it from a 3:18 to a 3:11 after a few attempts. 1 clean lap, done. :)

    Amazing how 7 seconds goes from 11,000 to 1300ish. I guess because the track is so huge?

    Scary part is I'm starting to like this track now that I know it better. lol

    That's not cruel that's bloody awesome. What's cruel is the more laps I do the harder it gets and the more ways the bloody computer can find to hurl me off the track, no warning just "You're off":mad::grumpy:

    I'm older than you and Kossie doesn't bother me at all in fact he's quite funny.:cheers:

    Partially right, but it was much harder and more frustrating in the event we had some weeks ago on the Nürburgring Nordschleife + GP-Track which measures not quite double the lenght of Le Mans (Le Mans is "only" 13.629 metres while the Nürburgring Nordschleife + GP-Track is 25.359 metres!).
    You know how frustrating it is THERE to miss the last turn and bump into the wall after more than 7 minutes of very concentrated driving? I do! :D:crazy::nervous::ouch:
    Thank you very much for that Tune btw, I used it and I improved from #817 to #552 (whereas I drove the Pescarolo before, but changing for the Peugeot and applying your tune made a big difference, and if I were a bit younger still and would put more courage into the last part between the Porsche Turn and Maison Blanche (which I drive like a coward when I have a good time at hand which I then don't want to lose there due to greed), I guess I could improve my time by 0,5 to maybe 1 second even if I try hard (my current time is 3:09,564).
    I always loved that track and it is one of my favourites besides the Nürburgring Nordschleife, Spa and maybe Monaco.

    P.S.: I will send you a friendship-request if I may, because I think we could have some interesting matches in the TT's and maybe have an online race one day too!?
    Many thanks again for the Peugeot-Tune!

    And that's that. I don't want to see Sarthe again nor an Evo for a long time.

    3.03.771 - PO 36. For the oldies.

    I'll post the tune tomorow when i've recovered. Lol.

    After trying this tune I concluded that it was very unstable in the rear ,which some very fast tunes are .But then when I could not get your ballast position and amount to match up with 1036 HP to make 700pp (I needed 60kg at +31 to use 1036 HP) I suspected something might be incorrect .Because you do not mention the actual power I just assumed you use 1036. So I thought could you have made a typo on your ballast position ,so I try +3 on the ballast position, and DING now i can have 54 kg and 1036 HP at 3+ position ,and for me at least, the car feels amazing and is much faster. Curious to see what others think of this theory.

    Here is the setup I used for my 3.03.771. Thanks to beau 231 and mateus paulo for their input, with a few tweaks of my own.

    Power 98.6%
    Bhp: 1021
    Weight: 804kg's
    Ballast: 54kgs @ +31%

    Suspension:

    65/65
    12.25/13.81
    4/4
    4/4
    6/7
    0.00/0.00
    0.30/0.13

    Brakes 6/8

    Transmission:

    Final to 5000
    Top Speed 240kph

    1. 5941
    2. 4335
    3. 3499
    4. 2870
    5. 2378
    6. 2023

    Final Gear 2050

    Drivetrain:

    8
    16
    8

    Downforce: 600/840

    Works for me, so hope it helps if you want to try it.

    I had the same problem, which you have now solved, with the rear end all over the place in the porsche curves.interesting. Might throw in another lap or two, only done 6,000klm in the evo so far, may as well throw in a ''few'' to see how that handles. Thanks for that.

    I might try this set up myself, but a quick glance tells me I'll need the ballast forward a bit and the brakes at 6/4...maybe 6/2.
    My driving style must be harsh, because I can't keep anything with aggressive entry steering under control. For me it feels incredibly inconsistent and leads to rides in the grass and sand.

    Of course you are using much more rear downforce. My best run was at 770, even tried 760. Trying to gain top speed.

    Hmmmm
