First 3 laps with no tuning yet, can't wait to try this one properly!
First conservative laps using @Bellin 's tune:
Mr. Bond does like to drift every once in a while but I imagined it much worse than it actually is. Challenging but fun combo.
Ooooh, good combo. Nice few sectors *dink*. Ah, maybe next time *dink*. Humph, concentra*dink*...
Do you expect me to complete a clean lap?
No Mr Bond, I expect you to use your steering wheel as a chew toy!
Not touched the suspension yet.
For those struggling with this track. This is a nice track guide from @Tidgney. It helped me understand the track back when i had no idea what i was doing. I know the car and the game(gt6) aren't the same but still there's enough info in it to help out what to do and where to put the focus on.
@Tidgney I love how a 4 year old video still contains relevant info! good job!
Changed the gearbox this time and made changes to the suspension and LSD. The car felt a bit more stable this time
i think i shouldnt have added to setup to that post or the fetchbot messed up somewhere it's taking my gears as sectors
removed setup from last post and edited it in here.
105/105 (for those that use inches -> 4,13/4,13)
Top speed: 250 km/h
Final Gear: 5.300 (do this first!! set it to 5,500 and then change the top speed)
The vantage does get pretty stable after lowering the ride height. I was surprised with the difference. I’m gonna play with the LSD next.
So... Let's try this again
Fetchy got it right this time
I'll put him on rations if he keeps misbehaving
ugh, i really need to start reading my notes properly when i write something down... how did i not notice my typo
Another coupla miles and many more *dinks*, along with some minor fettling, fiddling and ****ing it up.
First splits for the board all stock after 96 miles run today.
They say a change is as good as a rest and boy the heavy Vantage is a real change to the Ferrari !
Looked at the car stats Max Speed 7.9 - Interesting; then Cornering 2.0 & Braking 2.2 and thought oh dear.....
Actually though the Vantage is pretty good going uphill and downhill so far but stopping it from speed is another matter entirely............look forward to seeing how tuning can help - pretty sure anyway that Q section would have 'modified' this car for Mr Bond's use including stripping weight - pity we can't lighten it !
How did you get the 105 setting for Ride Height?
He's quoting mm you need to convert to inches
Edit: Google says (4.13)
I've edited it in for ya
The current setup I’m using:
Out .10/In .33
The transmission flip...
50% of my laps are red, room to get faster.
I excel at painting walls and visiting beaches at this track.
I did 50 miles with Bellin's tune and now will try shoenboggie's.
It's interesting how these different tunings can give the car different personalities, yet given enough time I would probably find approximately the same lap time. Both of the setups I tried are a bit too oversteery for me, so I took shoenboggie's tune and lowered the tail height to 3.94 inches. It's still a bit squirrely, but that's all I've got for now.
Better at the line this time.
Its good to be back behind the wheel this week! I really like the feel of this car with @shoenboggie’s setup, I only hit a wall once in 10 laps
Still loads of time to find but a busy week at work may restrict my track time
I’ve gone for a very patriotic livery this week, British racing green & Union jacks
@Nerazzurri being pedantic it's only called the union jack when flown from a sailing vessel. Union flag or flag of the Union when emblazened on a screaming Vantage
I had the rear ride height at 3.94 just before I settled on 3.97. Balance the car with light throttle to help control the oversteer.
Car is very sensitive to corner speeds, curbs, road camber, elevation changes, mechanical grip and braking. Other than that it drives great.
Well, you learn something new every day!
I didn’t know that so thanks Mike for enlightening me
Wasn't trying to be a jerk mate and hope you didn't get offended but it was something that I only learned a few years back myself
Of course not mate! I like to learn new things & I genuinely had no idea about that
Erm... I'm pretty sure setup doesn't matter as far as I'm concerned.
Originally I set it up quite soft. I've just slammed it and cranked it to the max on all suspension settings except camber at 1.0 front and rear and wheels at 0 toe.
Tranny flip to taste.
LSD 8, 13, 15.
Just took off .6 on my 1st test lap and had to share. *****?
Ok, another .5s off in both S2 and 3.
Full tune to follow.
If a single number, apply f&r.
In mph after flip. Final to 4.808
Hope it helps someone.
