So is this strictly speaking a "new" car?
18:00 Euro slot, Fuji.
Top 6 all “cheated” by not taking the mandatory stop. They all finished in the top 8. The 1 minute penalty is clearly not sufficient at this track in those cars.
It should be a straight DQ if you don’t follow the rules. These folks have gained both Cup points and Dr at the expense of those of us who stopped. They must be so proud.
How much further can this sham of a game fall?
this might be the worst car+tire combo in any GTWS, daily, Gazoo so far.
its just not fun to drive. Does anyone actually have fun driving these high powered car with diffs set to locked with tires that are worse than the IRL tires you get with the car.
stock supras do not handle like this.
Nah, the GR Yaris 1st Edition RZ "High performance" is the model we've already got, one of the last cars added to GT Sport.
So why did 8 out of 10 who pit finish behind the 6 that didnt? Guess we all managed to suck at the same time.The time you lose for a pit stop is around 20 seconds, so even if they had pit they would have finished ahead of you.
Yep, it was the "First Edition" that made me wonder if it was some kind of sneaky variant, but no it's the car that's already in the game.Nah, the GR Yaris 1st Edition RZ "High performance" is the model we've already got, one of the last cars added to GT Sport.
It's "high performance" because in some regions with tighter emissions regulations the GR Yaris there makes 11 less bhp and 10 less Nm of torque.
Because their overall race time was at least 40 seconds slower, irrespective of pit stops. That's a hell of a lot for a 10 lap race.So why did 8 out of 10 who pit finish behind the 6 that didnt?
Arguably yes, but a 1 minute penalty is plenty to put those that didn't pit to the very bottom rankings. At least that's true for any kind of lobby where the pace difference between fastest and lowest isn't the chasm from your race.Irrespective, not following the rules should be a straight D/Q. Factoring time penalties should not be in the equation. You cheated, pay the proper penalty.
Because the guys who put were too slow? Watto said it, 1 minute is far more than a pit stop costs you. And since there was only one type of tires allowed (you didn't need to change tires anyway), pitting neither gave you an advantage nor a disadvantage. The pace before and after pitting should have been identical.So why did 8 out of 10 who pit finish behind the 6 that didnt? Guess we all managed to suck at the same time.
Lobby was mid C/S.What DR was that lobby?
What's weird though? Pitting cost 21 seconds (I went back and checked) of lap time. Not pitting cost 60 seconds. It's as simple as that. There's nothing weird.Look, I understand the time penalty usually being sufficient but for over half the field to finish behind the non-pitters is weird, to say the least.
No, it was always 20 seconds until an FIA Nations race at Laguna Seca where pitting cost over 30 seconds of lap time, so nobody pit and just absorbed the penalty as that worked out to be quicker. After that PD changed the penalty to 60 seconds. It hasn't ever been 2 minutes.I‘m sure GTS also had a period were the penalty “flexed” with some being 20s and some a minute. There was also a period where it was 2 mins..I think.
Simple mate:I still haven't figured out how things work on dirt I don't think. I don't know if its a matter of being in the wrong gear or if its just the tires not get traction, but it feel like you hit the throttle and the car just sits there. And no matter what I do that 90 degree left before the long back straight I cannot get a good entry or exit, car just feels like it wallows through there.
Keep the revs up by kickin' it down a gear when necessary.
Stay on the brown stuff; it offers much-better traction than the grass.
