I always found TC to be in the way of laptimes. Is this the case in ur Ferrari sir? Did you try disabling it? Does it provide more feel if disabled? Am I driving the car with throttle too much for TC system to handle it? Is it working progressively enabled or plain stalls in the way of power boost? Yea hard to make it a simple question.
Well, The challenge car i drove in Barcalona it was difference between 1,5 seconds on new tires, but this is a road TC and yes that was very much in the way of making faster laptimes.
However on the GTC the TC is quite different, But still faster without on new tires. on older tires/stint driving it's faster on average to have it on 2(lowest setting)
Yes I have, it does of course create more feel, but it also wears rear tires faster.
Again, in the Challenge car it does everything for you, if you go flat out, out of a corner you can feel the power bugging down and thus you have no power, in this case no TC is faster.
In the GTC, you sort of need it to be faster. on my fastest lap on Paul Richard it was shown to be active 6% of the time I was on the power, so it's not that significant of a difference if it's on or off. Of course if you run it in the highest setting (9 i think) It's just cutting too much throttle, and this is only for Spa rain.
Dennis summed it up right, so this should be [/arguement] at this point. Having nearly the same conditions on every race car is what makes racing, and not disabling some aids like TC or ABS. They won't drive your car without making the right inputs, you can still build up seconds of differences over a lap even if you have those aids turned on. Adjusting your driving to suit them is what makes you a racer, and not plain disabling.
I think you guys are all right in one way or another, it's totally subjective anyway. But my thoughts on the matter are probably a little closer to Tristan's. Although saying that, I do really appreciate the ability and potential of a car like the Nissan GTR and would love to own one because of that, but not for the "driver enjoyment". When it comes to that all I think about is "Would I want that on a Caterham 7?", no flappy paddles, no ESP, EBD, TCS or ABS no matter how much it might improve the laptime, thanks.
But it can and for me that's irrelevant, is all I'm saying. Faster isn't better necessarily. I don't knock anyone for using those systems or liking cars equipped with them, but I wouldn't choose to add them.
1.0 was also supposed to be out in November or October. I'm pretty sure that was the last time pit stops after 1.0 was mentioned, you never know maybe they had a little time in between testing multi player.
