    Don't forget the race will be street tyres only. I reckon that adds 3-4 seconds to the FWDs.

    Abarth would be the safe bet but the gta would be bloody good fun

    I think I'll be using the Alpha. Seem to have the most fun in the Alpha.

    The Lambo, just looks too good, but feels heavy to me.

    My preference would be the QV LE 14, but if I could get it vaguely competitive (like within a couple of seconds a lap) I would take the Lambo.
    My guess for the Lambo/GTA - 40 min race, avg lap time of first place - 2 min 30 sec - 16 laps, 5*16=130 secs. So if Lambo/GTA finish on the same lap as first place it will be a great drive.
    If no-one else wants the Lambo I'll take it!

    I want the lambo

    Skid, can you add another lambo, and either keep it at 11 slots, or drop a QV?

    Cheers.

    1 more lambo added.. Total cars is now 11.


    To help people with their choice of what car to use (fastest or safest).... I'll be upping the tyre wear rate to x250%

    *evil laugh*..... Your welcome.

    We had a look at some gt3 cars which were really good fun. Cars had a good range of difficulty and should make for a good race.

    Having been admin for a server in both this and Race07 for a while, I would highly recommend trying to get a group of cars that are all very similar, e.g. GT2 or GT3 as it can quickly become tiresome if you happen to end up being the only person in a particular car in multi class racing and cannot keep up with the rest of the field due to the shortcomings of the car, or vice versa are streaming away from everyone else.

    As we're still only in the testing faze of trying out cars, race formats, etc. to see what best suits our members for a "Championship Season",.. It's advised not to limit yourself to only 1 favored vehicle per "Pre Season Test Race" when privately testing. Please test/select a minimum of 2 in the case of already having been selected by others when entering the server come race night.

    Track and cars were selected after our last post race testing session, mixed in with a we bit of research aiming towards balance and variety.... >_O


    Please take note the changes to this weeks test format below.

    Im interested to see how skins would work as far as im aware you can only select the type of car on the race multiplayer menu and not the livery.

    Ill read into it but I think it may involve all parties having the custom skins loaded on there machines. Do we have a drop box account set up yet or can we use a folder in an existing account?

    Just create your own for this test to start with I'd say, and we'll see how she goes.

    Hi Guys,
    Just cut some laps with the cars "out of the box."
    My humble opinion on the seeding:
    McLaren - drove this first, no likee!
    BMW - drove second, this is more like it! Perhaps the best for consistent laps.
    Mercedes - third, like the sound. Wanted to like this, but maybe behind the BMW.
    Ferrari - fourth, awesome sound! Congrats to the sound engineer. The quickest.
    Corvette - last, not as bad as the McLaren in many ways, under-whelming, not the quickest or reliable lapper I think.
    This is with the standard setup and these things have a stack of "bells and whistles" to play with - too complex for me!

    The 458 is the bees knees! (whatever they are!)
    Interested to hear your thoughts on the cars.

    Yep.. Everyone will probably always have differing opinions when selecting cars that best suits them.

    Choose the cars your most comfortable and stable with for over 30mins of racing with as little mistakes made as possible... and just keep in mind, that this is only our pre season testing, so whatever anyone selects, try not to be disheartened if your fav. might be already taken on the night... yeah?

    Of course I'm exempt from the above advice, being the host/server admin ...I'll just frikken kick/ban the beejeezus out've any people that takes the car that I want.. hehe.


    There's not a lot in it between them (seconds/lap), as you can see in the graphs below.... Courtesy of RSR Live Timing

    PS: Re the Ferrari (being stable'n fast)... It could help some of the guys that might find they're struggling or a little off the pace, do you think?... Example keep it as a reserve? ..(just a thought)

    Right i've had a read up on skins. http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/in...1/#post-518381

    If we want to test skins we need to do the following
    everyone submits their skins and they are put into a skins pack
    Everyone downloads and installs the skins prior to the race
    We use booking mode for the server

    anyone got any experience with the booking mode?
