We tested RM but did not like what it did to the handling, more grip often causes more underwater.Not much a fan of Monaco and I may not submit a replay this week but, here's my best splits from those 18 laps last night.
This car has a less than inspiring exhaust note and could benefit from some BB adjustments and probably be better on SM tires. Just not enough torques for RHs. I may take another run at this later in the week, if my eyes can stand it. Getting the lap times added to my spreadsheet and making this post is about all I want tonight I think. Catch ya'll tomorrow.
I tried SMs on this car for an idea I had for Ascari, and it didn't solve the issue as you suspect. I'm running 3/7 and it helps on some turns and makes your life more difficult on others. But I'm not good enough with understeering cars so I still prefer it. I think it's my biggest unsolved flaw since joining WRS (Well personality aside ) , to one day learn the proper technique to drive with understeer.Pretty sure I said SM as in Sport Mediums, not RMs. The back end of this machine on racing tires just doesn't break loose unless you yank the front end around vigorously. It would probably still understeer during decel but it might rotate better under accel.
Yeah, I spotted the BB adjustment allowed and if I get a chance this weekend to listen to the bees again I'll be adjusting to somewhere in the neighborhood of 3/7. Might go so far as 1/9 and see how crazy that feels. All depends on how my eyes feel this weekend.
Well, we also tested SS. I did not like what it did to lateral grip, so we ended up here. Monaco is an interesting track to set for a combo. You often need more tire than you otherwise would.I didn't actually suspect it would solve the understeer, putting on SM tires. What I was suggesting was it would redeem itself by having a touch of acceleration oversteer, being a middle/low powered car with no torques until you get the bees to really screaming, it desperately needs a redeeming quality or two. Or three. It is what it is however.
The only way I know to deal with understeer, without making mechanical adjustments, is to slow down. Which is contra-intuitive to anyone trying to go faster.
I'll try my best to give you the best advice I know off, I'm sure others will chip in, howeverSpent a good part of the day and night running this. I have seen split times way lower then what I have posted, but I keep screwing up those laps to no end.... I know I am no where near the pace I should be running, but I have hit a plateau where I don't see an end too.
Anyone have advise on overcoming a plateau?
I know from Karting everytime I hit a plateau it was just the telltale sign I was about to evolve. Sometimes it took months, other times just hours and a couple times it took a year. Just wondering how others deal with this.
Thanks Ghost! and great splits by you as well 👍Updated Splits , Another 2 tenths at the line.
@GTP_Ph7shr that first sector of yours is mighty , It's the first corner that gets me every time just not getting the turn in i desire. Still gonna have a few more runs ,
Let's try this one last time ...
I brake pretty early in 2nd gear in turn 1 and get right back on it and try to do a mid to late apex on corner 1. If braked around the correct time, it frees up the car and your able to punch the gas a lot earlier.
thats why your not getting in the .4xxs in T1, Try 2nd gear, brake earlish and punch it.I Will try that , I've been taking it in third gear and braking late with BB @ 3/7
