Have you tried TC at 2? I can get away with almost anything with that and full DF...
There’s 3 corners it has this phenomenon. I might be getting somewhere as using Ron’s tune and I have played with gears and appear to have a lot more stable car. Also taken Roamers advice and started using Tc at 2.
My updated sector 1&2 although not very quick I have just knocked a second out of sector 3 I have ran quicker first sectors with sub 30 on the first and around 26.5 the second
So now I have the car somewhat stable I just need to string 3 decent sectors together. Easier said than done
A short track guide:
Sector one is brake a bit earlier then possible then coast into it a bit too fast, let it break by itself. Timing is the key. Keep it rolling until you hit the peak of the compression uphill. Full throttle. Pretty short shift up to 4th and 5th. Close line now. Keep it on the left lane and 4th gear in and 5th out of the righthander and keep it on the left side again. Full throttle. Switch to 7th gear when entering the final lefthander. Close exit there as well.
2nd sector is pretty much straightforward - brake short before the curb. 5th gear and as early as possible out there. Close to the right if possible exiting next turn. A short brake tab very close to where the track goes downhill. 6th gear. keep momentum. But still try to apply early throttle. Holding the following banked turn as close as you can. Pedal under the metal.
3rd: start braking late. Don’t know if 2nd and close or using track in 3rd gear is the key. Let it happen and do what seems better. Both versions added up to the exact same for me...
Full throttle and just a short lift while going up to 6th gear right before the apex into the uphill. Find a preparing line, brake on the very left of the track right before the entering curb starts and start coasting for the final left/right combo. throttle out. Done.
Amazing work Stefan
@The Grim Reaper Jamie call me Javier dude
Update. I’m bloody moving now. It feels like it’s glued to the track havimg cocked about for hours trying to get it there.
Edit: moved the sector 1 video up to where it belongs. Previous post.
A nice improvement at the line...
Holy cow! I'm glad I raced yesterday, I took 3 seconds off my time this morning.
Roamer, what do you mean by full DF? Newbie minds want to know...
I am starting to feel it...
Javier means full downforce settings on the car...
Yup that's what I mean. Sorry for the GT jargon
I’m spamming now just smacked my time the very next run
Turns 1, 3, and 7 are the worst corners I've ever experienced. There is no possible way to tackle these without spinning out in an instant
Lost a lot of time during S3. All in all there's 1.5 seconds in my time that I should in theory be able to gain. Only if I can get 1,3, and 7 correct...
Ive found actually getting your foot down earlier helps with these corners. In others words take a brave pill
Got nervous in sector 3 but still better
Welp, sounds like I messed up my setup then because the car seems to be very unhappy over the bumps on the outside of T1 and T3 o_O
Welcome to the WRS, if you have any questions or need any help then please ask and we'll do what we can to assist
I’m using Rons tune, along with my own gears and have that sucker glued to the road. I have every confidence at the moment that panting my foot works well
Best advice I can give is you have to be brave, very brave with this car!
I’ve had faster sections. I did knock a big chunk off my overall time. I’ll try tuning tomorrow.
I have 4 days straight off... I'll be back on this like a fly on the smelly stuff after I had some sleep
Wicked splits posted guys!
A slight step backward on the splits but a very nice improvement in sector 3...
@dranddad Phillip, you are an inspiration to us old guys!
Thanks Larry, we geriatric's have to keep these whipper snapper's on their toe's Larry
Had 2 more sessions since first splits and my optimal got better but still no idea how to do 29's in the 1st sector. Last night I switched back to the stock/default gears @Meister Fetz Stefan suggested and liked that better than my silly 6spd idea. Shifting down 6 times from the bowl into the hairpin is a trip!
