I am really desperate to do this event. Sunday the 17th of March.

Its a strange mod, i loved the sounds. There will be plenty of drivers in the race, there always are for HSO open events. Does anyone want to join me? Could be a good event for Michael as there will be drivers with various levels of speed. It will be the week after the last round of eiic. Nothing too serious just fun.

Juan you are welcome to join me. I dont expect it to be as serious or competitive as EIIC, I plan to have a blast around in the cars and to finish the race. Have a look on the HSO website. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Richard I am in for this one. I noticed that some of the guys from CMS are looking for drivers to join them so it seems a popular event. We will have to choose a car so we can start to practice. Yes I am still without a sim rig as mentioned but I am well into a new design and will be up and running very soon. Who will act as lead? I am a member on the site and can arrange the needed procedures if you like?

Michael if you can register and coordinate an entry then that would be ideal. Initially we will have to select from what is left on the cars available list but cars will probably free up if other teams drop out (a few usually do).

I will definately be able and want to drive. In my opinion 2 drivers would easily be enough. It would be nice if Juan or Ricardo could join us but if they are not driving then maybe you could invite a friend from CMS.

Juan test the mod and check that you are free for the race day.

I will note that the registration for the Rothman 962 has been filled with CMS guys. I have been able to race with most of these guys so this may be a good one. Heres my choice and I hope it is OK with you.
Registered as follows

"I would like to register Richard Roberts and myself, Michael Labelle to drive the
3.0 Porsche 962 - Porsche AG
#19-Blaupunkt"

It is official Richard we are in the Kremer Racing #11. This should be a blast. I have dreamed of having a go at a Group C car and to get this opportunity is amazing.
I am into the build for my new rig and hope to be finished in a couple of days.
I not doing anything fancy just trying to build a sturdier base than I had and I am going to flip the peddles so they hang down.
When I am up and running I will let you know so we can begin to sort out the beasty. It may not be a bad thing having a bit less power as the car seems to be missing grip. We shall see.

You guys think you will be needing three drivers? Doesn't seem long enough to warrant it.

I think it could take around 5.5 hours.

3 Drivers would be good because if one had to drop out then there is no problem.

Thanks for making the entry Michael. I am looking forward to the race immensely.

PostSubject: 3 drivers   Tue 19 Feb 2013 - 16:49

I am Ok with another driver if Juan wishes to join us. The more the merrier. While working at my project I set the AI out with a full tank 100L (44laps) and the default setting. It managed 38 laps at 1:12:xxx per lap and pitted. I was expecting more so I missed the entrance but the AI usually pits with a few litres in the tank. That said it looks like we will be doing triple stints with 2 guys as it looks around a 240+ lap race. Let me know and I will add Juan to our team.

Derek Bell at Fuji in a Porsche 965. I like hearing the tires scrubbing through turn 1.

PostSubject: Too much information   Wed 20 Feb 2013 - 7:49

Richard I have been reading the thread from CMS by the 6 guys that make up the Rothmans team America and I assume you are still a member there. They are already up to page 22 so there is tons of info they are discussing as well as sharing setup and strategy for the race. Easier if you take a look yourself rather than me cherry picking through it and posting it here. inspect

Thats good with me. Michael has yet to try the mod as well.

Btw if all three of us do make the race there is probably an option to drive for two teams in one race.

Are you guys thinking about registering four drivers and fielding two cars?

I think its just michael, you and I at the moment.

I just tested the car/mod.

It was quite tricky to master initially. Dont use real feel. I had ffb 100% and it was ok in my shakedown at the nurburgring.

It has quite a lot of aero which affects braking. You can brake hard at high speed but you have to ease off and raise your foot a bit as the car gets slower. Its easy to lock the front wheels on braking in slow corners.

Some cars go really fast but feel slow. This car goes really fast and feels really fast. It goes like a rocket! It can squirm a bit over bumps at high speed. At low speeds its pretty manageable because the big tyres are really grippy. Torque is pretty manageable, I didnt suffer with wheel spin.

Having tested on the race track I think the car is very challenging to drive. Traction is difficult on the Fuji circuit.

I had a lot of sudden oversteer on corner exit. I had to keep the wheel really straight accelerating, it doesnt take much steering angle at all to turn the car. Changing down into first and up into 2nd is risky.

Really challenging and you wont know whether you will want to race without trying it. Challenging but rewarding when you get it right.

Hi Richard and Juan

I have finally gotten my sim rig rebuilt and have taken the 962C out at Fuji. I have only
managed 30 or so laps and spent most of my time trying to conquer the understeer that
seems to plague my efforts to drive this car. Next are the brakes, which at times I wonder
if there are any. My best times so far is 1:19:323 a one off it seems, which was a full
2.322 seconds faster than my previous best. So I can go faster I just need a couple
hundred laps to improve my consistency.

I have the setup which I used to get to the 1:19 which is more about getting the weight
forward over the front wheels to help the braking and calm the understeer. There are still
lots of room for improvement. I use the controller.ini that we used when I was racing with
the team and it has been the one I always use. The engine is to quiet for me even wearing
headphones I find I have yet to hear the engine note that tells me to shift. I have to
keep my eye on the Tac or I hit the limiter. So much for a musical ear.

Are you using Motec? If so we could trade files to help with finding a compatible setup
for all three of us.

I haven’t seen the HSO server up or am I missing something.

Regards

Mike

Hal server wasn't up last night. At hso website there is a link to hot laps I am on there with 1.18 but can do better. One offs don't matter much though. Will be good to practice with other teams and see where they are quicker than us

I'll try your set again tomorrow. About under steer I suppose on the last section I have understeer and perhaps entry to slow corners but corner exit is the place that I think is most important and oversteer is the predominant characteristic with this super powered car
