Quote from GT4_PL :help where is car blistac compact old on gta online? help!

i need get it!

You need to buy it from www.southernsanandreassuperautos.com

It can be seen driving around the Burton area rarely but it's classified as a high end vehicle so you can't keep it.

Quote from PhilS13 :Changing box length, box height and mass(wtf? it really shouldn't) affect its value. That means the DI we see in AC is based on mass and pitch inertia alone. Not yaw, not roll.

Mass does affect the yaw dynamic index...

e.g. Yaw DI = k^2 / ab, given that k^2 = Iz / m

As far as I can tell AC wants the input for car.ini as INERTIA=width,height,length (whole vehicle values i.e. not track,height,wheelbase).

At least that's what every good mod seems to use (except in cases like the AC Cobra which uses a lower height value in car.ini. I assume that this is due to the fact that it doesn't have a roof and the windowscreen would only count for 1% of the cars overall mass or something).

Mass is already in the Iz. You divide by m to get k. Both masses cancel each other out.

Thanks. I thought I was missing something in regards to that.

Quote from Hyperactive :
Wonder who will drive the 2nd toro rosso car next season.. Also can't help but feel sad for bianchi. Stuck in that red turd in the back of the grid with almost no room to show any kind of skill. If ferrari won't move him to at least to sauber next season then his career is done imho.

Pierre Gasly, Carlos Sainz Jr. or Alex Lynn. Take your pick.

Sergio Perez is on there as well. Alonso/Perez/Blundell 3 car team in 2015 anyone????

Will we see you there too?

Nope. I finished Uni this year. I heard that UTWSD Swansea A are a good team though (except for Oscar)

Quote from Boris Lozac :That first setup was annoying but ok, not so complicated. I thought i've calibrated the wheel properly, but MX5 is giving me only 90 degrees of rotation to each side, is that normal? The feeling and FFB is pretty much awfull if this is all there is to it. All aids off etc..

turn driver arms off

GP3 practice crash

Hopefully they get rid of these stupid ****ing kerbs now or at least smoothen the transition between the grass and the kerb

Quote from J@tko :Lotterer replacing Kobayashi for Belgium Grand Prix

Huh? \$\$\$\$\$?

Nah he gets paid by Audi and Toyota for his other racing. He is driving for free (so was Koba). He has driven for Kolles (Tech. Dir.) before though and was teammates with Albers (Team Prin.) in that drive.

He doesn't exactly not deserve it, it's just odd.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-roll_bar

that stiffer ARBs increase weight transfer. But I've been taught that weight transfer is a function of Centripetal acceleration, car weight, c.g height and track width. Confused here

The total weight transfer equation is always true irrespective of suspension design and damping. Stiffer roll bars increase the lateral load split (i.e the difference between the force applied to the outside and inside wheels)

For an example, if you put a stiffer rear anti roll bar on, the calculated effects for a right hand turn using just sprung and unsprung mass calculations would be:
Your overall load transfer from mah/T would be the same, but a larger percentage of that load is applied to the left rear tyre along with the rear transferring more total load than the front. (due to the load split decrease on the front and increase on the rear).

Quote from Deutschland2007 :I think the Monza changes are really related to Bikes, see here: http://www.worldsbk.com/en/new ... Dorna+WSBK+visit+at+Monza

It makes sence for them to do it, but I think we'll hear even more tracklimits whining now during the F1 and car races there. Though when I think about it, when they put down tarmac in the Parabolica, that means the Lesmo bends might be in for a change too? It's a similar kind of situation for bikes there as it is (or rather was) with the Parabolica with just gravel there.

don't think they need it at Lesmo. The run up to it isn't so high speed so any bikeist falling off is unlikely to find the barrier anyway

14 different cars to start the season in BTCC. 4 different cars in WTCC TC1...

30 drivers in BTCC.

WTCC cars are too expensive and most of the tracks that they go to are too big (Spa etc) or just crap (Suzuka East, Morocco)

imo WTCC will probably die a slow death unless they pick up something like NGTC
