    Praiano's tune is good for a stable car, but if you want the most speed round here I feel the car needs to be a lot looser. If you add more negative rear toe and reverse the ride height/spring rate as a starting point, the car turns a lot easier ;) That kind of setup put me at .5 away from the quickest time.

    Also.. happy 9th birthday to the WRS, here's to another 9 years of frustration and desperation while we try to get the most out of our cars :sly:

    First lap, overly cautious. Here's my current settings, time to tweak.

    First half hour....aka 3 laps!

    Wasn't the best, was uber slow at certain points but it'll get me on the board ;-)

    Edit: realized that I used stock aero. *Fail*

    Try putting the shutter speed at 1/60 ;)

    Some of those sectors are pointless. I could have gone up to #12, but I wanted to stick with the 9 theme. Plus, I wasn't sure if fetchy would support that many.

    Question: How are you guys managing to put a strikethrough in your posts?
    I thought the BBS code was open bracket, s, closed bracket, text, open bracket, slash, s, closed bracket. It doesn't work for me.

    Tried to photo the flames again. Found that they are hiding in the boot of the car with a little peeking through the top. Slowing the shutter speed gives a vague flame discolouration in the right spot but not clear.

    Second try with more agressive settings on my basic tune, it take out 3 seconds easy. It´s not very extreme and stay safe this way, really for everybody go fast :nervous:

    If you were wondering what difference full aero makes over stock aero (which is well down on full values by default) I did my first clean lap with it a full 17 seconds faster, so yeah - bit of a pointless session earlier.

    WHAT a car this thing is - with full aero it just sings like Pavarotti and dances like Fred Astaire - not surprised the fans put all those tents up to watch it fly past, superb!

    Got these splits on my 3rd lap - the GP track sections were dreadful. It got a lot better on the Nordschleife with a few mistakes here and there which cost several tenths each time.

    I also drifted entry to the penultimate S bends, after the long straight - I caught the grass and thought the lap was over and in the armco, but I somehow drifted into both parts of the S and got out without leaving the track....

    I've never driven the Nordschleife with a steering wheel, so this is a first. I've gotta say it's probably the most satisfying thing, it's just plain difficult with the DS3, so very narrow and so much precision required to navigate the twists and bumps - this is something else.

    Shame I can't hold more laps together, but hey, that's the brutal nature of this track....

    Anyway, enough talk:

    What a combo! It will be bad for the ego this week getting destroyed by ring rats, and not being able to blame either the car or the tires for problems...

    I love this car. I chose this one for my first 4-hr Enduro run, which sadly wasn't recently. The looks! The fire-spitting! The noise! The go-where-you-want-ness (I think they call that handling or something)!

    First actual lap (literally. Only had time for a single run before bed after getting set up, tune was left over from Enduro &/ online use, but I've got two others to try). Couldn't believe I managed it cleanly without offs, and had to check I didn't have R3s on. Not going to be near fast, and I think there's gearing problems, but:

    T1: 37.233
    T2: 25.013
    T3: 20.540
    T4: 44.823
    T5: 33.378
    T6: 28.913
    T7: 47.885
    T8: 36.843
    T9: 26.070

    My God, it's full of Sectors!

    To bad the number on the side of the Alpha is 8 instead of 9.:)

    I think this car was in GT3 and 4 altho I havent really driven it since GT3. Thats the one great thing about this race series I get alot of use out of so many cars in the game I never would.

    I know how awesome this class of car is to drive around this track...quite a pleasure cruise. Will definitly be trying this one!:)

    Oh hell! Green hell infact!

    This is one lovely combo! Car is smooth, the raving tyres make a big difference in grip and it's relatively easy to control. But put it on the 'ring, oh dear.... Any and all of my abilities go flying out the window!!

    I don't mind the GP part of the track... It's other 13 miles that kill me!

    Tried about 10 Laps, not one clean lap yet.

    I will get one by the end of the week!

    Took me 300miles to get a lap worth posting. Almost lost it at the end, but some kind soul had installed cobbles on the side of the tarmac, right where I ended up. :tup: Loving this!

    My advice is to try the car with reduced power to get used to the tricky parts, and then crank it up. Try 80% power, make sure you can get clean laps, then turn it up. I used to do that on GT4 when learning this track.

    Second thing. I messed up on the boundary rules in the first post, as I stole them from week 14 that was the old track only. I've added the below to the first post. Sorry if anyone was exploiting the loophole, but you should have known better anyhow. ;)


    • Rumble Strips and Cobbles outside of rumble strips in the Nordschleiffe section are all track.
    • Over Run Tarmac Beyond Rumble Strips, White Track Boundary Lines, or Cones in the GP section is not track (See Details in Pictures Below)

    Use the scroll bar on the bottom row. If you don't see one, you might try a different web browser.

    Oh, probably not. I do have tomorrow off, though. Presidents' Day. :cool:
