Hah I think i'm just doing this for fun and nothing more really. Just like to set a fast time. And i never used anything "other then normal" so really there are some new things i didnt knew about. And i like to know the story behind the fast hotlappers
I'm not taking this to seriously just having fun. The serious business begins next weekend !
I have to agree with arrachee and some more on this one. Handbrake usage isn't that bad IMO .. There are some much more unrealistic things done to get a fast lap by other drivers. Some slides etc are just impossible IRL. And irl you won't have 1 million times to try it out :P
Somethings in setup are not realistic at all. The car doesnt react to changes like it should. I can't use my real life experience for this, because somethings are just not right ( one car more then the other btw )
I like the idea of making the cars in forms of cupracing. Limited setup options, but still enough to make a change in laptimes etc. ( good setuppers should be rewarded ) For example make the fox regulations Like the FRenault2.0. XFG like clio cup etc etc. Change the gearing to SHORT MEDIUM LONG also.
But it's really hard to feel ( you wont feel it at all :P ) this in a sim, when or whether you are TO early on the throttle. It's not only with full throttle. Like the last corner on Classic rev, sometimes if you are a bit to early the car tends to understeer outside a bit. So it's better the wait a bit.
I'ts not only the point of throttle. I can go 10 meters earlier full throttle and still loose time at the end. If the horizontal forces are much bigger then if i go 10 meters later on throttle the car wont accelerate fast.
I can post some data from my Formula Renault at Spa if anyone finds that interesting.
