    It's not racing. It's time attack . .


    The premise is simple. Set the fastest lap you can, in a week.
    We'll alternate between Tsukuba, and Suzuka on a weekly basis.
    OK, so it's not quite that simple. There are a few rules.
    • Use the car/track settings specified.
    • Use of clutch in manual cars is allowed.
    • Complete laps in Arcade Time Trial mode.
    • Save best lap replay. Please complete first sector after lap, to ensure full replay is captured.
    • Top five times will be asked to share replay in game using #tpctimeattack for verification.
    • Complete Google form linked below, to add time to spreadsheet. You can add as many laps as you want. Only the fastest will count.
    Classes at Tsukuba - All N classes, and Gr.B.
    Classes at Suzuka - Gr.4/3/2/1.
    Gr.X - Race cars @suzuka. All others @suzuka.

    [​IMG]

    Two wheels must be kept on the red/white curbing, with the following exception.

    Tsukuba - Green astroturf can be used to widen angle on exit of final corner, as below.

    [​IMG]

    Week 4.


    Circuit -
    Suzuka.
    Conditions - Sunset. 18:45.
    Car - De Mclaren F1 GTR-BMW '95.
    BoP - Power 100%. Weight 100%.
    Tyres - Racing Soft.
    Suspension - Tuning allowed.
    Aerodynamics - Tuning allowed.
    Differential - Tuning allowed.
    Transmission - Tuning allowed.
    Driver aids - Optional.

    We'll change cars at midnight GMT, every Sunday. Next change, Sun, 28th June.

    Have fun. Feel free to discuss times/set up/tips, and upload videos for reference/to help others, as you wish.

    Form to upload times to spreadsheet is here.
    (When completing total time, please use 00:00.000 format.)

    Hey man! :) What sort of problems are you having? I believe @Groundfish also has a Fanatec wheel, maybe he can help. :)

    Once there's a few non test times on the spreadsheet, I'll provide a link to it, so that the leaderboard is visible, for that extra little bit of competition.

    20200530_164604.jpg don't mind the mess, I'll get that sorted later. Well I put it in ps4 mode. It recognizes it and I can steer. But my pedals aren't working. No gas or brake input at all

    Edit, it works perfect on iracing, no issues at all besides operator error. Coming from the g29, I have to relearn how to drive this thing! I love it though!

    Definitely looks like a DD wheel.

    Nice looking bit of kit, @suprajef

    If anyone wants a base setting to work from, this is my current suspension set up. It does need work, and I haven't touched the diffs. But, it's already feeling a lot better.

    I may just be an idiot, do I connect both usb's to the ps4 or just the dd1 wheel base. Leave the pedal usb out? Idk, computer noob here. I just knocked off 2 seconds off my time in the nascar xfinity mid Ohio course on iracing, it is miles ahead of logitech

    This will be my base lap with the stock car, time to start tuning. :)

    It’s worth a try, it could work? I wish I knew more about this stuff.

    Any chance you could put that through the form for me? Mainly so I can get some laps on there, to remove the test ones.

    Makes up for all the Bridgestone wins, then :lol:

    You'll need to use mileage points to "buy" power level upgrades. Can go as high as 186%.

    I was tempted to start with one of the SF cars, at 100% power and weight. But, that might be a bit too much like jumping in at the deep end :lol:

    I tweaked that tune a bit and she feels a bit more stable now, shaved almost half a tenth. :lol:

    Pretty sure you could get Pluto to hold a tighter line through the final turn.

    I’m going to say it’s also reasonably unbalanced when you let off the brakes, haha.
