    You could edit the surfaces.ini file and issue it to everyone.

    Would have to come with a disclaimer that they should backup the original file as it will cause mismatches etc.

    I see that as the only way to lock down anything not a track surface, so long as no surface, off track, is named the same in the ini file.

    Shaun, My post was meant to be a bit tongue in cheek. I'm terrible in this car, but at least its a good excuse :D

    Looking at the top speed of some drivers, I am not sure if everybody knows this:
    this car has variable turbo. you can set your turbo with number 1-0. 0 being 100%.

    Also, I will release my setup this week as well. But to keep encouraging people to make their own sets I will release it friday or saturday. This gives people who didn't manage to make a good setup a chance at getting up higher.

    Is there a way to rate posts both "informative" and "friendly"? :D Thanks for that, Remco.

    And thank you Narinjan, for that generous comment. :)

    ok I did some testing, just a few laps but my fastest time so far was set by going all 4 wheels off track at turn 18 blanchimont.... you gain time by not loosing momentum on entry ..... didn't test turn 5 ...

    did you also test how far you could go off?
  8. Niranjan Kumar Licensed Driver

    nope, my wheels were just outside the curbs on the astro turf .......

    Is it normal that I get the engine damage notifier flashing at anything more than 75-80% throttle when the turbo is set to 80%? I drove a few laps like that and nothing exploded, but the flashing graphic was quite annoying.
  10. Remco Majoor Licensed Driver

    yes, this is because you are damaging the engine then. I tested that you can do about 2 laps with 100% turbo
  11. Kris Vickers Licensed Driver

    70% is the max turbo you can have without it registering any damage at all.

    Not done any particular lengthy amount of laps with 80% or higher, although as above, Remco says you can do about 2 laps on max.

    Helluva car to get used to though!
  12. Shaun Clarke Licensed Driver

    I have only tested offline, and 70% is the max I can use, before the Engine went naa sorry :( not feeling it anymore LOL

    I tried 80% and as soon as I touch the throttle, my engine is :mad:

    I am still trying to work out something....it is the suspension squeaking through Rouge or my bum
  13. Stacy Newcomb Licensed Driver

    The second one.......:eek:
  14. Remco Majoor Licensed Driver

    What I do, is I do my outlap on 70%, going into my single hotlap I set it to 100%. tires last 1 lap anyway
  15. Kris Vickers Licensed Driver

    What I do is, try not to press the throttle, because I spin lol

    Where's the option to install a 1.2ltr NA tiny engine for easy driving???
  16. Dean Snell Licensed Driver

    Thanks Remco. Had no idea about this. So just set to 70% for now and took 4.5 seconds off my time and there's still more to come. :)
  17. Remco Majoor Licensed Driver

    My newest setup ( a bit different than my older set where I did my fastest lap with, but this one I can, if I can get that good lap in again, go half a second faster, of which 3 tenths in eau rouge.)

    Here is a video of my fastest lap

    A bit early due to me being busy this weekend.
