My opinion...Car is perfect...I like this old cars.Very fun to drive, and race can be very interesting..Not to fast, there is time to react when racing, just the way I like...
Did not practice a lot, just a few laps..1,55 for now
Had a go with the Abarth tonight, The more I drive this car the more I love it. Got down to the low 55's, did about a dozen laps or so.
Took a couple of the new toys out for a spin too. That Audi S1 is a fantastic car! Peppy and nimble, easy to maneuver, it actually felt a lot like my Cooper S. I drove that thing around Imola until it ran out of petrol. Pretty sure we will race it here soon. Also took the Praga out, that thing is cool too. It's kinda like a LMP3 car, not super fast but compliant as hell. No problem going through Eau Rouge flat. We'll probably race it too so dig in your couch cousins for three bucks and get the Tripl3 Pack, it's worth it for that car alone. 👍
You're a little off the pace. I'm guessing you're not on the Sprint/GT version of the track though..Not sure if I'll be able to make it this week.
Was running 2:36s on street tires. Anybody else try it out?
I don't know how much the driving aids affect lap times but my advice is always the same. Turn off everything and drive the car au natural to really get a feel for it. If need be turn on ABS and/or TC if you really need to but nothing else. I think stability control and similar aids take away your ability to control the car and insert a disconnect between your inputs and what's happening with the car, making it harder to understand how your inputs affect the car behaviour. At the risk of sounding like Mr Miyagi, Assetto Corsa is the first sim I've played where you can really feel your way around the track and become one with the car. Where you can react instinctively because the game is giving you enough information through the FFB, the screen and the speakers to know what is happening on all 4 corners of the car without having to really think about it. IMO when you use the driving aids it gets between you and the physics engine and teaches you not only bad, but incorrect driving habits. Finding and testing the limits of the car is the key to speed, anything that messes with that will ultimately slow you down.How did you get under 1:50?? I was consistent at 1:55 and not sure how much I could gain on that. Perhaps if the stability control was off it'd help a bit.
