Have your say !
copied over from the other thread:
Sorry for the bump in the last corner Toni. I wasn't getting DRS availability and was trying to work out how close i needed to be.
The answer: not that close!!!!
Hope that wasn't the cause of your long pit stop.
This race was great fun start to finish! Nice to be racing with some of the old R2P crew!
Happy to find some speed out of rfactor2
finally. Great Q.
Race...wrong tyre choise, maybe next time tes abit, it spoiled my 1st stint but still
chances for podium no problem. Untill mess up at pits. a##ho##s started to fill up tank. Another new thing learned.
Great racing .
Hey guys, good to be back on track after many months not really racing much.
Surprised to be so competitive having never driven these before but really enjoyed it.
Got caught out trying not to hit Toni early and slipped down the order, pitted earlier than planned due to a wide vd Geest car :-] and slowly made my way back up.
Plenty fast enough towards the end by ran out of laps to catch the front two.
Good to get out there again and look forward to the upcoming series.
Pinnacle 1 and 3, just like old times haha!
no spins this week, made the race a bit unexciting for me, maybe I go back to spinning next week (like hell I will )
Made a good start again only managed to get 1 place by turn 1 this time
Lap 2 Rob spun Coming out of turn 2 so gained another place, Nick spun @ turn 10 so up to P6
Lap 8 Nick dived up the inside into turn 1 (lucky I have a triple screen display or I wouldn't have seen him & opened my steering)
Lap 11 lapped Roger (whoaaa I lapped someone!!!!!! )
Pitted on lap 20 in 3rd came back out in 5th (was expecting to drop back down to around 7th) finished the race in 5th
For the first round of the championship I was having problems with my pedals. Didn't realise it then as the mod was new to me and I thought it was me but the problem became obvious at Toban. Played around with it and got it right for Norisring. Only to have the problems come back up again at Mills. Tried playing around with everything again but still couldn't get it right for Portugal. Was forced to admit that I was getting nowhere so made the big decision to invest in a new set of pedals. Got the pedals Palm Springs race day and spent all day changing my rig and got to try out the pedals 1/2 hour before the race. Off I went to Palm Springs, happy to get there in time. Used the default set-up, and forget to put the fuel for the pit stop but hell, my pedals were working and I finished the race!
So with Malaysia it was like it was the first race of the championship and I told myself this is fun. Had an off in the first or second lap avoiding punting someone which put me at the back. Managed a seventh place which isn't too bad for me so I was happy.
Am getting used to the mod now and my pedals so am ready to attack.
Only problem is the next race is the last and I can't make it.
Did what I could, but didn't have the pace to follow the leaders. I could keep Nick behind me before the pitstop, but after the stop he got a good run on me on the inside before the last second gear hairpin and I opened up the steering to let him pass. After that he was gone
Seeing Ricardo Gomes finish behind me now makes the last race very exciting for the championship.
Bring it on !!
I had my setup right, for fuel i mean, as i do in all races. But this time i had a disco in warmup that messed up my setup (because of parc fermé, i think)..
I never needed to, so i went to pit without looking ---> and this time i lost 8x seconds on refulling (and my setup was set right, as is since race1.. i just tweak a thing or two)
Went pit in first place --- left pit in God knows what position
I'm done with this series.. and this mod
Can someone upload the replay file?
I had 2 setups, 1 for the race and 1 for quali, the warmup finished and I loaded my race setup and joined. only to see I had 2 laps of fuel. 1 did the warmup lap and the 1st lap then pitted for fuel, it took 147 seconds for fuel and 120 for tyres. Oh and the yellow square on the dash that turns green when the DRS active was not there. either the mod is broke or parc ferme is doing strange things .
Guys we think there was an issue with the server ..apologies for that but its out of our control ..I to had weird fuel bug like Ricardo only i saw it in time to adjust it ..
The main server was messed up & has been restarted and issues are now resolved ..
With max points 10 for the series your never out of reach as its hard to build a large lead ,This makes for great racing !
The final race at Interlagos should be a screamer !!!
No No No ..That's not how it works .. on DRS tracks in practice & qual DRS is free to use over the entire track =you will see the yellow box in P & Q all the time .
Once the race session starts the yellow box will ONLY appear when your within 1 sec of the car ahead ..only then will the yellow box show up in race session ..
This yellow box means its now active , this is to show you you can now use it .. when its not active there will be NO box at all ..;-) for it to activate you must be within 1 sec of car ahead In the DETECTION Zone (line before last turn to main strait at Malaysia ...)
The drs is like Rob said...but the fuel thing i believe you..there's something very wrong...
This is how it works for me; after warmup, I go to the garage with the same setup (parc ferme) and fill her up again for the race.
Being on the startinggrid for the race, you get on default a 55 liters setting to add on the pitstop. While on the startinggrid, I just take that 55 liters out and set it to zero.
Never been a problem for me. I never had a bug with it.
There's no point in racing like this...i'm out of this last race
Its FIXED now Ricardo ! server was bugged .. unfortunate ..
However it kind of goes along with how intense this series has gone all along ! lol
We have all had some kind of messed up race of witch we had no control of .. even outraged rammers !! so..
I find it quite exciting that the top spot is so closely contended !
we have all took one on the chin at times ..lol
But my setup was right...i just added fuel and still it refulled when i went to pit
This is race 9...i know since race1 how to setup the car...and the setup is basically always the same
I supose it was because i had a disco during warm up...that's the only explanation
And it will still be intense...just not with me
There's lots of good drivers in this series...you'll do fine without me
Its hard enough racing otther drivers...going against bugs is out of my reach
This is a major factor in the whole affair ! The server being stressed was the other making it harder to reconnect .. I noticed the night before the server was slow as hell ..All that is fixed now ..
& Ricardo ! common we luv you man Don't quit when so close !! I totaly get it ,with a win it would be out of reach and you would have won the champ then ...
fait played a hand and delt you some more adversity .. now you have to fight for whats yours !! 1 more race to go .. !
And if you do quit ( but you wont;-) that hands the championship to JVDG !!! We can't have that !!! are you out of your mind ?? lol we will never here the end of it !
Yes... but if you put 1 stop with 0 liters you dont need to do that
I know because i did it the other 8 races
I do the exact same thing and my pit had added gas as well like I said I saw it in time to take the fuel out .. .. it was buggered .. its fixed .. ;-)
