You should you post the cars with and without BoP.
- Changed test track to Tokyo Expressway - East Outer Loop instead of Blue Moon Bay II
- Redone Gr1, Gr2, Gr3, Gr4
- Added 8 DLC cars
- Added 1 DLC track
- to do: GrB, test each track per class, N Class to do in BoP (possible single car in more categories)
For people who want to calculate fuel consumption for their cars without BoP (and I hope I got these right!), try these. Going by the figures in the first post.
Every 1% of power increase takes approximately 1,3% away from the range.
If the car has its power increased by BoP: 1 / (0,987^(BoP power percentage - 100)) x measured range = 100% power range
Every 1% of power decrease adds approximately 0,52% to the range.
If the car has its power decreased by BoP: 1 / (1,0052^(100 - BoP power percentage)) x measured range = 100% power range
Every 1% of weight increase takes approximately 0,4% away from the range.
If the car has its weight increased by BoP: 1 / (0,996^(BoP weight percentage - 100)) x measured range = 100% weight range
Decreasing the weight results in a meaninglessly small change so I'll leave it out.
Simply by calculating from the figures in the first post:How did you figure this out. Logically it makes no sense that an increase would have different size effect from a decrease...
And yes I know that it makes no sense but that's what it says there...Power & weight vs range:
-20% power - 111%
-10% power - 105%
+10 % power - 87%
+20% power - 77%
-10% weight - 101%
+10% weight - 96%
Has anyone done a similar test with tyre wear for Gr3/4 cars? I know people say there's too much variable and stuff, so I'm not looking for exact km at which your tyre lose xxx pixel, more just general trends. Like I know the GT86 Gr.4 has stupidly good tyre life, and last week FIA race I got smoked by a one stopping Beetle Gr.3 at Suzuka. Any other cars that has much better tyre life than others in the class?
Guess most of the testing has to be redone, with all the changes in the meantime... could be easier now though with SSRX...
You can set power and weight of the normal track BOP on each car you'll test. I did this for 4 cars i pretend to race next FIA events.Ovals have their own BOP so it wouldn't work. I'm tempted to do this again like the tyre test with 50x multiplier and one lap, and see how much fuel is left in the tank for each car, but fuel is even more dependent on driving style and shifting point. Even shifting just 500 rpm lower can have a huge effect with high multipliers. You can leave it in AT, but then some cars actually benefit from shortshifting due to their power curve so it won't be representative of real racing situation either. Too many variables
