    PROJECT C.A.R.S NURBURGRING NORDSCHLEIFE LEADERBOARD



    Greetings everyone & welcome to the official "SiTheBugski" Project CARS Nurburgring Nordschleife Leaderboard.

    With every new racing game, I always find myself asking this question (which car is faster on Nordschleife?) Hopefully in this thread I will be able to answer that very question.

    So here I will be hot lapping each and every car featured in Project CARS (including DLC) on the legendary Nurburgring Nordschleife, pushing them to their respective limits on the world's most demanding race track. Each car will have a standard / default setup to ensure fairness in times. I will also be posting videos for each and every car I hot lap.

    I will try and be as consistent as possible with adding new cars to the leaderboard along with videos (But please be aware that video editing is quite time consuming so there may be some delays, also work may also delay things) So I apologize in advance and I hope you guys can understand.

    Please feel free to discuss anything thread related here, also if you have any question about anything or requests please ask either through the comments or PM me.

    Cool - one of my favorite things to do in pCARS right now is to run laps on the Green Hell in the BMW M3 GT4. I only get 2-3 laps in each morning after doing other races but my time is getting faster. Will get more serious whenever my T3PA-Pro pedals arrive.

    Yeah, it will take a fair amount of time to get everything done (Lapping, recording and video editing) but it'll be worth it. And also it will be good to see differences in cars in the same sub-class, etc. Aswell as providing players with a general basic comparison.

    Are you using a pad or wheel? Just if its a pad I don't think you can be as consistent with a pad.

    You do know that there is an online leaderboard that lists the times for each car on each track as posted by PC players.

    For example the hypersport has 24 drivers posted a time on the ring fastest is 7:02.409 slowest is 8:28.357
    The Atom has 11 times posted fastest is 7:42.907 slowest is 8:30.458

    http://cars-stats-steam.wmdportal.com/index.php/leaderboard?track=697498609&vehicle=526708607

    Of course it may not be the same drivers who posted a time but if you just want to get an idea of how any of the various cars stack up that would be a good first place to look.

    Oh I didn't know that, that's actually pretty cool thanks for the info. However I'm on PS4, so I'm not sure if there are any differences. Either way I'm doing this for my pleasure, I enjoy hot lapping cars on Nurburgring ever since GT5 days (although I never posted / started a thread :lol:) Also I enjoy being creative and making a video of the hot laps, which is nice because it showcases the car, the game, and gives you a more entertaining way of viewing lap times rather than just looking at the time. Drivers can learn from replays :cheers:

    As far as I can tell the physics are identical between console and PC. The recent SMS-R championship leaderboard featured several drivers from pc, PS4 and XBone in the top 20, which I don't think would be possible if there were physics differences. I think lap times are comparable across versions, however, the caveat is always whether someone cut the track or not because track cutting to save time is possible in places on some tracks.

    Hello STB, I applaud your enthusiasm here! Will you be using modified game settings or is your plan to use 100% Default Engine/Tire/Suspension/Authenticity and Track Condition Settings? Since many of those have an affect on lap times....it might be helpful to post your intended settings for these variables:

    CONTROL SCHEME

    Platform......................PS4
    Controller Type.............
    Controller Mfg/Model......
    Automatic Clutch...........
    Gearing.......................
    Inverted Gearing...........
    TRACK CONDITIONS
    Weather Slots...............
    Weather Progression......
    Date Type....................
    Starting Time...............
    Time Progression..........
    AUTHENTICITY
    Steering Assistance.......
    Braking Assistance........
    Driving Assists Allowed..
    Anti-Lock Brakes...........
    Stability Control............
    Traction Control............
    Damage.......................
    Mechanical Failures........
    Tire Wear....................
    Fuel Usage...................
    Auto Start Engine..........
    Flags & Penalties...........

    Thanks in advance for your reply and I look forward to seeing your times start to post. :cheers:

    That is correct, which is why I said times posted by PC Players. It is a smaller sampling than if it would have the consoles as well but it appears that the cars turn pretty much the same times across platforms so it is a way to see what kind of times may be turned in a specific car though it is still early and some of those top times have not truly pushed the car.

    For example I went out on one of them a couple of days ago and easily beat the #1 time by about 4 seconds on my first try/lap.

    Gearing.......................Manual
    Inverted Gearing...........
    TRACK CONDITIONS
    Weather Slots...............Clear
    Weather Progression......No
    Date Type....................
    Starting Time...............10:30am
    Time Progression..........0
    AUTHENTICITY
    Steering Assistance.......No
    Braking Assistance........No
    Driving Assists Allowed..Yes
    Anti-Lock Brakes...........Yes
    Stability Control............No

    That's actually a good idea, I'll get working on the updated OP.

    I'm also thinking of adding a full car list to the OP, with direct links. So if anyone is looking for a particular car it would make it alot simpler to find :idea:
