For my times I use the std controller and JIC I have the ABS turned on.
That's true. I think that's why offline F1CE is such a great game - it does have a huge range of difficulty levels. The one thing it is lacking (for the fastest racers) is a more aggressive AI that actually defends the racing line.
Standard controller for me.
If it's just DaddyVDUB & myself using the G25, it will make me feel a whole lot better about my lap times.
I wouldn't give up my wheel in F1CE - I love the way it rattles around over the bumps at speed, but I've always had a feeling that it's possibly faster with a pad.
Faster with a controller,than a wheel? I think that would come down to an individual.
I know Fishfash says he's faster with a controller, but I reckon it would take me a few hundred hours to be competitive on a controller.
I'v only got a few times up there from the weekly hotlaps series:-DFP
I have a G25, but it's not the fastest wheel IMO, I think the DFP is quicker.
I would say that with the time I have spent with the wheel I am probably quicker now with the wheel than the controller but only by a whisker.
I would never go back to the controller ever again, those days are over for me.
Everything is up to date now, seriously I have done it!
Well all but these, and I still have to put in the info on what controller people use.
PS: Biggles on post 195 you have a Montreal time with only 2 digits for the fractions of a second, can you please tell me which one your missing, thanks.
Please look for mistakes.
Budapest: 1:13.853, 27.423/25.249/21.181, (mkay, Ferrari, auto, Sixaxis)
Room for improvement, I'm guessing 1 or 2 tenths for each sector... but I was too tired to continue
PS: All my times were done using AT and Sixaxis.
yep in regards to my Melbourne time it was with sixaxis. Pretty interested in how a wheel would go now, always imagined it would be slower for some reason.
Montreal: 20.152/22.676/26.344 1:09.172. Renault, Sixaxis.
This is kind of true, but I can still have competitive races at Silverstone, Catalunya and Suzuka where the computer is very fast. Suzuka is the most amazing track in the game once you get the hang of it.
Update for Melbourne:28.004/23.356/31.656 1:23.016. Renault, Sixaxis.
Screen shots can be provided for all of these by the way because even i found that one hard to believe, only took a slight change of the susp.
Sure Alireza got a 1:21 at Melbourne.
If you could provide the screen shot easily that would be great. Its not that I'm questioning you or your time, but the more provable times we have here the more respect these times have.
Great time btw, sadly we dont have Alirezas 1.21, he has only posted times in the weekly series so I cant post his 1.21 here.
When I started playing F1CE I went straight to Suzuka (because I was familiar with the track form GT4 & spent hours trying to win a race at Suzuka (on Medium) & NEVER succeeded. Only later did I realize that Suzy is one of the most difficult tracks in F1CE.
From what I'm reading it seems that SOME people ARE using a wheel in F1CE, but MOST are not. Hmm... I wonder why nobody has tried racing a RL F1 car using a pad?!

Sorry about montreal, realize it's pretty hard to see.
Middle one is a newy.
Budapest: 27.191/25.730/20.932 1:13.853. Renault, Sixaxis.
Wow 1:21 at melbourne is awesome, would imagine that has to pretty much be a perfect lap with the perfect setup.
Ahh whoops my bad here are the links.
Wow! 1.13.XXX at Budapest is amazing. I just spent a couple of hours racing at Budapest & could only manage low 1.17.XXX. Admittedly, that was in QR with no tuning, but I don't think tuning could take off that much (my fastest time is 1.16.XXX in WC). My guess is, the best I could manage would be low 1.16 or high 1.15 in a perfect lap.
I would really like to know which fast times are being set with a wheel, because I'm starting to think that in F1CE the pad is significantly faster. The thing is: running anything below 1.16 at Budapest is going to make you WAY faster than the AI, which typically run fast times in the mid 1.17s.
I'll try and add a list of those people who have added their choice of controller in the first post later on this evening.
I myself set all my times here with a sixaxis controller with auto, although recently the L3 button has become very loose and difficult to steer with (I blame COD sprint).
I also have a DFGT which I recently got, but havent used it for any of these times because its at home and I'm in college with the PS3 (thought bringing a steering wheel up would be just a tad nerdy!)
DS3 for me
Yeah Biggles i would get around 1:16-17's without tuning to, I don't know about everyone else but i find tuning easily takes about 2-3 secs difference if you figure out a really good setup. Use the sixaxis to but i can see how a wheel would be faster for certain corners, a few that come to mind are the two at Malaysia that start as a light corner then really tighten up and a similar one near the end of Catalunya. I always find it hard stay in the racing line for when the corner tightens up with the pad.
Here are some of my good lap times:
Sepang - 21.889/28.765/37.981 - 1:28.635 (Keith, Renault)
Imola - 17.071/27.026/30.525 - 1:14.622 (Keith, Renault)
Istanbul - 28.866/31.404/25.667 - 1:25.937 (Keith, Renault)
Shanghai - 31.264/33.643/26.307 - 1:31.214 (Keith, Renault)
I have these on camera if evidence is needed. I searched the forum, Im pretty sure these are some of the best times for these circuits. But correct me if I'm wrong.
Good times indeed but hate to burst your bubble, Alireza got a similar Shanghai time in a Red Bull and I'm sure other people have beaten the Istanbul time, myself included. I'm no where near your Imola or Sepang times though.
New Monza record I believe:
1:18.103, 23.008/26.759/28.336 (Shaggy Alonso, Ferrari)
I did this with the G25 steering wheel in only about half an hours racing, it is definitely faster than the controller.
New Catalunya time:
1:13.869, 22.294/30.560/21.015 (icelt, Renault)
Just finished my S2 career mode race at this track and in the RB I could barely crack a 1:15.9 on my absolute best lap. However after saving and hopping in the Renault for a GPW I set a high 1:14 on the out lap using basically the exact same settings as the RB. It just always amazes me how much faster and grippier the best cars are in this game. The other thing that amazes me is that even for a pretty respectable time dang if my sector 2 time isn't friggin' horrible .
Good to see your enjoying using a wheel.
@Gt4:: RE:Alireza's 1.21.xxx at Melbourne:
I thought you moved the times over from the weekly series.I have never posted times here, yet there are times with my name in the list.
As far as I know he never officially posted that time. The time I have for him from that series is a 1.23 in a BMW which I've posted here. Even your times here are only times on the leader boards in the other thread, not any times discussed casually.
I think thats what you mean? Although it is highly highly likely that I've made a mistake somewhere. If so could someone let me know the post number that Alireza's posted that time on so as I can fix this problem.
BTW: This thread will be fully updated tomorrow.
If not can someone get a moderator to ban me from this site for not carrying out my thread starter duties.
Ok all is updated, completely!
Please Please Please post any new times in the format:
time, sector1/sector2/sector3, (name, car)
in that exact order. It would mean I could update more often because it would only take me a few seconds to do them all rather than having to copy and paste bits and chop off other bits and then edit out hyphens and brackets and whatever. So just dont post randomly. And thanks to all those who do follow the rule.
Also Biggles I still cant post your time in post 195 because of the two decimal places rather than three.
PS:Sorry for the double post but this is deserved a new post.
And lastly a special update may be coming very soon! But you'll hear as much from me about it as you do from PD about GT.
After fixing my power supply in the PS3
Here it is
1:21:599 27.564/22.569/31.566 Alireza Sabbagh Ferrari
There is a few tenths in that time !
I am willing to discss setups a lot more nowas I have a lot more time,
Let the records begin !!!!
1:22.070, 23.738/28.004/30.328, (Alltidxx, McLaren)
Ran into this PB time during practice with my new DFP with manual gears. I've only really raced for the gold medal previously on this track but this was a 2,2 sec improvement . That deserved a listing I thought.
We finally have the legendary time!
There is just nothing to say about it, well other than share your setup now! Please.
@Alltidxx, small setup changes with gear ratios and wing angles can make huge difference around Monza, maybe you'd want to tamper with them and eek out a few more tenths.
