Unfortunately I can't race the 3 other races, but if there is a spot free and I'm back on time from my Shanghai flight, I will try to participate in this race (if that's allowed without a general sign-up for the rest of the races ;-) )

EDIT: wrong car :banghead:... so ignore the vid..
Found this video on youtube, maybe it can be of any help to others in the same situation. Setup part can be ignored of course.

That's a different car (GTE variant) and I'm pretty sure he's driving with a controller :D

That lap was done in about 15 minutes or so (you'll have to ask @Raigore as it wound him up something rotten :D)

Your 15 minutes will take me 15 days, probably more :) So hopefully @Raigore or someone else has a decent vid of a fast lap so I can learn from that.

@fab. ICEMAN I should have noticed I selected a wrong video... from what I remember driving the 488 challenge long time ago.. you need to shift up gears pretty fast.

I'll record a lap when I do some more practice. Don't repeat my silly mistake of using auto clutch in these cars, best tipp I can give you right now. For Mugello I was using the loose setup. Try to be very smoth on throttle, shortshifting can also help alot. Its easier to controll the car when you are in the lower rev range. And always open up the stearing before going on throttle. Personally I set TC to 0.14 so the TC doesnt interfere when youre going over curbs on the exit (specially in the first sector). Hope that does help a bit for now.

I assume that I will have to adjust TC (traction control) in the in car management system (ICM) and not in the setup menu, for otherwise it's no longer default setup ?

Did my first test with this combo and it gave me a smile from ear to ear :)
Don't know if I will be able to stay concentrated :wideyed: long enough to bring this car to the finish of the race, but fully concentrated it is great fun to drive :woot::woot::woot:

Everything you can change in the ICM you can also change in the setup, you'll have to change fuel level anyway. We are not using the ingame "force default" option, because some people might have to change steering ratio.

Surely need to adjust the steering ratio to a much lower setting to make it driveable. Didn't touch TC yet, car is rather tricky on the kerbs, also and especially under braking. Did a 1:49.356 yesterday ... took me 2 hours to get there instead of 15 Cluck minutes though :wacky:. But a 1:48 or lower should be possible once I get more familiar with the track. Have it all under control, except for Arrabbiata 1 and 2 (corner 8 & 9), still haven't figured out the correct way of braking, shifting and accellerating. But maybe that is a good thing :happy: ->

Mario Andretti quote:
“If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough.”

Hi all. We are busy sleep-training our baby daughter. I am a bit of a zombie. I don't want to make the call that I won't be attending tonight, it depends on if I can concentrate and drive safely, but if any reserves plan on attending and the lobby is full I'll give up my place. (I guess that means please put me as the lowest reserve)

I'm excited about racing again though and will do all I can to be there! Probably looking at some backmarker fun cause this car is weeeeird, struggling to get the hang of it (practiced a bit last week).

Useful track guide for those still struggling with the correct racing line. Seems I'm still improving, already figured out the correct racing line myself, which is exactly the same :)

Hi everyone,
It's my first race on RSR tonight, looking forward to it - Go easy on me! :nailbiting:

Also, what's the score with TeamSpeak?
Never used it before, is there a guide on here anywhere?
Will someone put a post up with server details closer to the time?
Questions!

Cheers :woot:
