Drip feed

So far: Cars have now moved on to 2004/5. Mercedes C32, Ford Mustang, Audi with RWD conversion. Still playing with 2005 BMW M3 as its still a little too good.

All circa 340 - 360+ bhp...............Fixed build with car having their own special areas of expertise

Whats more suprising than expected is how different they are on each track.
Example: Mustang is fastest at Hochenheim and slowest at Suzuka. Merc 2nd fastest at Hockenheim slowest Suzuka. Audi slowest at Hochenheim but blitzes everything at Sunset (and NOT top speed either - 2nd fastest over the line)

Bmw so far: Having to make it the heaviest with middle power of the group as its the best handling, but only just from the ...............Mustang

Sucess ballast will be used in the form of 5% - 10% Grip loss front and rear. 5% power loss will be too much at around 18bhp +
In FM4 the grip loss is far less noticeable than it was in FM3.

We can try both power and grip in testing
  • Race 1 qually - 1 flying lap, dirty first
  • Race 1 short race circa 15 mins max
  • Race 2 longer circa 40 mins 1 pit stop small window
  • Reverse Grid 2nd race and from race 1:
  • 1st = 10% front 5% Rear
  • 2nd = 5% Front 5% Rear
  • 3rd = 5% Front only

Offtopic, Milton, that bit "I nearly died y'know"... that's not part of your signature, is it?

Or do you type it every time?

Back on topic - woah, why do I have to be so skint at the moment (Gold)? This looks awesome!

Just ran all 4 cars around Sebring Short for 6 laps and this is what I found

Mustang - 1:20.3 seems a good all rounder and nice to drive (maybe biased to this car lol )

Merc - 1:20.5 nice to drive and great turn in on cold tyres but once warmed up it seemed to lose grip (tyres at 33psi)

Audi - 1:20.5 easiest to lose the back end on and brakes are bad (maybe low brake pressure)

BMW - 1:21.1 surprised with the time because it seemed to go a lot quicker then it did. Gearing is different then the others in that the gears seemed shorter

But with saying all that they are easy to drive and will make for a good series. Nice one @smokinmasta

Thank you sir. You should find BMW quicker at other tracks and other cars quicker etc etc. Thats the point, each car 'should' be better at certain tracks than the others. I know someone will dial into a car better than others and each set up will suit a driver but not another...............so hopefully peeps will pick a car they just like or just get on with
