Hi @Exited I will hold my hands up for making contact in race 2 at T4, the tight left hand hairpin. I thought I was being as careful as I could, it wasn't a divebomb, I simply placed the nose of my car too close to you when turning in, very sorry for that.Nothing much to say about my races. Got punted off two times at the start which is really a shame and I have the impression that we really should start enforcing driving standards more as there are more and more L1 incidents
But they are not F1 tires? These are F3 tires.
Nah, I drove them really hard and still noticed nothing suspicious... This is why I don't get the whole fuzz around them...I must be honest, I didn't notice anything with the tyres. Maybe I don't drive them hard enough to notice.
I also really liked that you can make a difference with your driving style and that clean and precise driving is awarded by this car and tire. No smashing around the car like in the DTM and Ginetta, more driving like in modern F1 and formula cars in general.Really enjoyed yesterday eventhough only just before the race I realized I only had the RSS2 but not the 3 installed xD The car is bloody brilliant! Best car in AC imho. I wouldn't want to change too much, like you guys say not having ABS and TC adds character and depth to the car and racing.
I lked how the tires added another layer to the experience. In S1 und S2 of the Evolution Series tire management wasn't a factor so having that now feels like a great addition. I would want to test the car more before saying if fixing the tires to hards or leaving them open would be better.
@Exited I have to disagree on one point with you. @miagi is right that the more you fix the setup, the more you benefit drivers that practice a lot. The less I can change on the car, the more I need to adapt to it, which requires track time perfecting lines.
Setup-wise we could probably fix the suspension regarding springs and dampers. Hard front and soft rear with according dampers is pretty much a given with the car balance and tire degradation. Aero wise I liked that yesterday we had guys running low, medium and high downforce. It added variation and made for some changes in pace throughout the lap creating different overtaking opportunities. We could think about limiting the available steps to 3 or 4, enough to have different overall downforce levels. I would limit the rear wing but leave the front wing open, for aero balance reasons.
Diff should be open, it was one of the main changes yesterday that made @Alex Salmon setup drivable for me (thanks for sharing ).
