Helseth - One handed - Very impressive. Hope the recovery goes well. Did a few goes. RX7 Spirit R Type A 446PP/292bhp/34torques/1270kg (SS 5/3 brakes) - No stop 26.2/23.3/23.5/24.2 24.4/24.5/25.4/28.7 (1F4-2R5)(20% fuel left) 11m40.3 24.6/23.2/22.8/25.0 24.5/24.3/24.9/31.7 (1F4-2R5) 11m41.0 Last lap on both runs had the tyres just give up on me - and a 31.7 looks like I must have visited the desert. However A bit of tyre management will prevent that dramatic drop off of pace. Neither race was a win. Rosati got the win with a 11m14 and Mathews got a win by five seconds over Rosati next time out with a 11m16 - So I was never going to win with that grid. Version 1.04 Shelby Mustang GT500 '13 558pp/660bhp/87 torques/1733kg SS 5/3 brakes This car (I got mine in Jamaican Lager sponsorship livery) 23.8/22.7/23.5/34.0 (2F5-2R5) (+40) 41.9/27.5/24.1/29.6 (0F4-1R4) (Out of fuel!) 12m06.9 I slide off on the final lap and my big fat 'stang dug a trench in the previously hard desert sand. (Good improvement PD.) - I also ran out of fuel on the run to the flag... maybe a second or two with coasting to the line... 22.8/22.3/23.0/33.8 (2F5-3R5) (+40) 42.9/22.4/24.0/26.1 (1F4-2R5) (Red light) 11m57.2 Car is pretty swift when it laps. A bit wobbly handling - mostly out of turns... not wheelspin oversteer, just the whole car felt like it was rebounding after unloading the suspension after a turn... Odd and after a few corners I adapted (Like the Borg driver that I am.) The car is tyre limited on the left front, so when your tyres go, it is an understeering sandy end rather than the much harder spin out of control nightmare of when the rear tyres are shot. On worn rubber the crest at Monroe rise can get the back end to break lose under power... not bad for a very porky car. What about your favourite Norwegian Driver? No Helseth... No not even Hollywood Solberg. A.Nielsen in his Ford Shelby Mustang GT500... 30.1/29.4/29.6/30.5 55.8/32.4/54.1/..... He pitted on lap 5 and 7 and was way way behind at the end of the race, such a backmarker the replay ended. (Camera Crew got bored waiting for him to finish!) --- Cizeta "Tuned" I did a bit of tuning to this car to see if it could be made less of a dog... I reverted away fro my SM/SS "Quick fix" and applied BeeBee9's suspension settings... well the guts of them. He wanted to drop the power via the restrictor for some PP target... I did a weight reduction1 1640kg -> 1459kg I then added 181kg of Ballast to the front bumper of the car. So the weight was still 1640kg. but now the front to rear weight balance was now... 47:53 - Better than 40:60. I then plugged in the custom Suspension settings... 85/100 Ride Height (Nose raised up) 12/10.6 Spring rate (Front springs much stronger) 3/4 Shocks Jounce 3/4 Shocks Droop 3/5 Roll bar 2°/1° camber +0.1°/+0.3° Toe in 20/10/25 Differential This returned a car of 544PP/579bhp/1640kg I also bolted on a new aero piece (Chin spoiler) and a custom (Car colour) rear wing. The rear wing alters the rear aero score from the fixed 200 to a slightly alterable 205-215... I moved it down to 205(Minimum) To the track! 27.4/27.8/27.7/34.1 (2F5-2R4) (Some fuel) 42.3/25.7/25.9/33.0 (1F4-1R3) 12m19.6 24.9/24.9/25.6/37.0 (2F5-3R5) 45.9/25.8/25.5/27.6 12m16.9 Hmmm... not much of an improvement over my own swap the front tyres fix! The car does handle much more balanced than a stock SS/SS car. The car doesn't oversteer like the back wheels were made from supermarket trolley castors. But the car also seemed a bit - awkward. Probably down to the extreme ballast. I ran the race twice, with a rese between as when I pulled my pitstop - I pause the game to write down the first three lap times and scribble down the tyres... but the game didn't like that! The first race had a Pagani (11m14) and a McLaren F1 (11m34). The second race had a Viper ACR (12m12), Diablo (12m12) ZR1 (12m16), Viper GTS (12m17) - So a close end to the race. Grid had a Veyron, ACR and a Murceilargo SV as the top three cars... So far the weakest grid I've seen... and I still end up in 4th!
