Sorry guys, I have too many phone calls tonight, so I can't stream the 2nd group tonight
Good on you for perservering! Was very admirable to see.Quick summary:
I choosed the wrong car first... BMW M3 is about 4 Seconds slower per Lap... Sadly i didn't test the other cars before the race. Testet the Nissan for 3 Laps after the Race and i immediatly get a time of 1:35.xxx while my fastest time in Training with the M3 was 1:37.xxx
The Next thing is that my H-Shifter don't shift in Gear 3 and 5 sometimes. It's dirt i cleaned it up some time ago. Now while the Race was progressing i got the same Failure again. So sometimes 3rd and 5th gear didn't engange or it jumoed to N while it was engaged. All this didn't helped me for a good performance
Can confirm @Blue MonkeyOne of the worst experiences ever - here some things I noticed (Build 1.3.1 0879):
- Nissan GTP-ZX Turbo massively OP - it is faster on a single lap and can go longer than ie. Sauber C9 (@w0rthy give more feedback on this please)
- At least for the Sauber C9, it loves snap oversteers, not recoverable, even with warm tires
- Group C lights are too short in how far they light up the track
- In this race, not being able to set pressures during pitstop really was a problem ...
- Several people got penalties for no reason (see other people's posts)
- Imo we shouldn't do such small lobbies (18 people)
- Everyone not having H-Shifter was a lot slower
- I had all the time the message SPEEDING IN PITLANE (see pics below)
Thank you! I also had the wrong pit strategy and had to stop again making my 1 stop into a 2 stop, my heart sank when my pit crew put down the guns and saluted without changing the tires.
Acc. to prc (yes I hear the laughing) it is 2+ sec too fast on Road America. Do you think it needs to be nerfed?@Blue Monkey In regards to the Group C cars, I've tried out most of them, and the zx just handles way nicer, in addition to having immensely more aero grip at lower aero settings making it absolutely crazy. It can go around 380kph at le mans and corner and brake harder than an r18 which only hits 330kph. The zx should probably be in a class with Formula X .
Problem is, if I am not completely mistaken, the ZX-GTP never competed directly against the group C.Acc. to prc (yes I hear the laughing) it is 2+ sec too fast on Road America. Do you think it needs to be nerfed?
How much did you test the other Group C cars on this track - do other Group C cars need buffing / nerfing?
What do you think of the tires ... Ie. I lose it, it just snaps, I can't catch the car if it starts to spin out - is this realistic or do you also think they should be more catchable?
It did race against 962, XJR-9, etc. in IMSA GT, but it is technically not a Group C car. Regulations of GTP-spec is a bit different from Gr. C, sort of like LMP2 and Daytona Prototype's relationship today, where the international regulated cars can race in America, but American regulated cars can't race in international events, because international regulated cars can fit in American rules, while American cars can't meet international standard, while their performance are still quite similar.The

@Thomas Sikora: Sorry for snoozing around in the last lap. I should have called out a slow car, but all I could think about at this point was: Fuel is empty, bladder is full. Fuel is empty, bladder is full...
It's not really my case to give up. I tried to get time back so i din't had a Pit Stop. Was a quite bad tactic though, my tires where so worn that i had problems to keep the car on track the last laps. Also the colder track and ambient temperature didn't helped much.Good on you for perservering! Was very admirable to see.
Had it also @ Softs in the zx, i shift earlier in corners then without the turboboost it feels god, means most corners i take in 4th gear, 3rd was difficult.What do you think of the tires ... Ie.

Then something with your setup was iffy. For me the car was in rails and I could mostly floor it out of the slowest corner in 2nd gear.
