Event 4, Aston Historic FOX
Since I managed to upset everyone over the 'pool dropping' incident I thought I may aswell start this one off. Hoping to do a bit better now we are into the single seaters, love this track layout too quite a nice endurance race track feel to it, except for getting air over that uphill chicane bit that always catches me out when I start getting settled. Also the open wheel aspect will make close racing a bit more interesting. See how many people can get as close as shuey and kimi did at silverstone
I have tried the combo, and I find it very boring. Very loooooong straights for those cars. And unlike in FE I think it will be impossile to flip the car...unfortunately

That depends on the driver I guess ...

This replay shows something diffrent and quiet spectacular, it was my first try at this car/track combo, just FFW the beggining when I get stuck in the sandtrap, it get intresting when spinning out in the upphill and lands on top off the tire barrier and then when im settled in after 4-5 sec the game flings me straight to heaven in 110kmh death flight.

Have you tried darkones WR set from inferno? I have no idea, if it is suitable for a 30 lap race, probably not, I guess.

And btw, I ran the current WR through f1perfview and average throttle is 95 %, percentage of full throttle is 92, between 6 and none 2. Veeery fast combo, I must say .

edit: and a total of measly 4 braking points, I might add .
I've setup the Mercury Racing Team server with the combo having 8 lap races. So far that takes around 20 mins or so, it is quite long. Most people I see are still using R1's, so any fewer laps for just short practices would be useless. I think some 8 lappers would be good to determine if R1's could last, and possibly if people will try using R2's.

People will surely be pitting in this race
I personally hope that the invisible wall bug on the right side wall after the twister-chichane has been fixed. Sucks pretty bad, if losing control on chichane in a way that send fox into it...

I've tried that set and I can't see it lasting 30 laps seeing as the tires were aproaching red after 3 laps.
Yes looks like a nice quali set though

Just for the record does anyone think that 1hr 15mins is too long for a OLFSL race? I mean I will probably be getting cramp & blurred vision by the time the race finishes.

How about we reduce it to 25 laps or about 1hr to save our eyes & numb bums?

p.s. - tweaker who is Miss LFS 2006? :wow: :jawdrop:
Buahahah, 1h 15 min is nothing

Never! Longer the better Under an hour long races are dull, but necessary due lack of resources, I presume.

If you can't handle fox for at least 30 laps on as historic, then you just don't have what it takes

NO!!!

I'm sure it does.

After 4/5 laps the tyres start to cool down again I think, they should hold it much longer than a full tank of fuel.
I guess they were red on the surface and blue/just green inside I guess I should heat them more gentley?

EDIT: - I've decided I'm not going to race with my wheel atm, it's an unfair risk to take for others as it's become very hard to stop the wheel wandering in a straight line.

Look in the 'contact us' section of the OLFSL website.
I hosted your pool and noted your disconnect on lap 2.
