  1. Yesterday
  2. I hate to say it, but I'm afraid Master is right - this is not Sector3's best work. I still believe it's been much improved, but I've taken a good number of laps in it across a multitude of tracks over the past week and it's found its way back onto my "not good" list. Not as bad as before, but it still feels very "canned" - you really can't feel the limit approaching until you are in a severe understeer situation (and setup changes to counter this seem to do nothing more than to make the back end squirrelly). Oh well...I guess I will just keep an eye on the changelogs for an indication they might have overhauled the physics on this one, but I'll be sticking to the F4 when I want an entry-level open wheel experience in R3E.
  3. Last week
  4. It's still a junk car. I was hopeing for something more like the skip barber or the formula trainer from Project Cars (less PC and more SB2000). But instead it is a wingless entry formula. There is a horrible economy lag on the throttle, the car is way to wide and its impossible to wreck. About the only thing I like about R3E is the sound and car bounce. Im hoping that PC2 fixes their broken physics/tire model but until then it looks like im stuck with iRacing.
  5. Anybody have seen Rosbergs try at silverstone grandprix(in RTL television) ? He did a jumpstart
  6. Definitely luck, don't think I can repeat that.
  7. Reserved for leaderboard. Last Update 20th July 14:30 GMT Last outing for the FW37 before we change cars at Spa! Good Luck Guys!
  8. Prior to each F1 race we will hotlap the same track as the real life drivers to see how we compare. TImes will be recorded using the in game steam friends leaderboard. Each challenge will run until Midnight GMT on the Sunday of the race. The next challenge will start on the following Monday. Thanks to Ahmad for the great idea The next Challenge is: Challenges > Hotlap: Williams FW37 @ Hungary GP (Hungaroring) Note: This is an addon car and track. You can get it here: Car: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/vrc-2015-williams-fw37.14491/ Track: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/hungaroring.2577/ This Challenge is open immediately and will expire Midnight GMT on the 30th July -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rules and Requirements: Game Settings Launcher settings for ABS and TC must be set to FACTORY. (once on track you can change the settings if the car allows it) Stability OFF, Fuel ON Penalties must be enabled Before you can start posting laps you need to do two things (if you haven't already) 1. Activate the in game Friends Leaderbord. To do this, take to the track and move your mouse to the right hand edge of the screen to activate the apps sidebar. From here select the Friends Leaderboard (it's near the bottom) You should then see a leaderboard similar to this. You can drag it round to a suitable position. Once the app is active it will log your laps and list those of your Steam Friends. 2. In order to get an accurate set of comparison of times you will need to add people to your friends list. You should be able to find all of us at the SimHQ Motorsports Steam Group. Just send out friend invites to those taking part and when they accept you can see their times on your leaderboard. I have most people already, but if you want to enter, please add me as a friend first (if you haven't already), then post a time. I'll periodically post my leaderboard in the following post so you can all see who you need to befriend. Hopefully after a short while we'll all be bosom buddies. Have Fun!!! The challenge is open immediately and will expire midnight GMT on the 30th July
  9. This challenge has now closed. Congrats to Archii who pulled out a good lead on this one! Thank to all who posted. We'll have one last outing with the FW37 at Hungary before changing car for Spa Next challenge (FW37@Hungaroring) will be up soon.
  10. Hmm, well they've fixed something - F Jr feels much, much better now. Physics/FFB now feel right in line with the other R3E content. I scanned the changelog and didn't really see anything specifically pertaining to this car, so maybe this is just the result of some general physics/FFB improvements to the game. Whatever they did, it worked - the car is much more fun to drive now (and, in a good way, harder to control). I still favor the F Novice models in AMS to R3E's F Jr, but the F Jr is still a lot of fun to drive now. It would seem to me with their wonderfully rounded content lineup, R3E has a real opportunity to create some kind of career mode module. You could go from F Jr -> F4 -> F3 -> F2 -> F1 with plenty of dynamic branching along the way ("hmm, didn't quite finish too strong in F2? F1 promotion might not be in the cards, but check out these F US and sportscar seat offes..."). I'm not sure how proud I am of what I'm about to say, but I think there are quite a few people who, like me, might have "more money than sense" as the saying goes and would be willing to fork out money for such a module on a DLC basis. Just sayin'...
  11. Earlier
  12. So, I bought a rift and when it got delivered I immediately tried it with this combo, and I'm amazed by the experience. I never really liked F1 cars, mostly because they are too fast for me, but also because for me visibility was an issue on screens. However with the rift it's completely different and I really enjoy driving these cars now, even though I'm still really slow in them
  13. I want to be faster then Bottas My best was 0.025 in an attempt to abuse the start. Real reaction times around 0.19. Got plenty of those.
  14. Lucky one ;-) https://www.dropbox.com/s/wzs0080tisjp9w1/faster.png?dl=0
  15. 0.252 so far. How fast is hamilton? btw, vettel did a 0.360 in Austria, so i am faster than vettel, thats enough. lol
  16. https://f1-start.glitch.me/ old phart clocked .206
  17. This challenge has now closed. Massive congrats to Archii!! Thanks to all who posted times. Up Next - Silverstone.
  18. Same car. Next track is Silverstone. Good luck guys - Only 1 week for this one! Reserved for leaderboard. Last update 17th July 17:30

  20. A bit of advice for Watkins Glen, there's only one way into the infield, so park on the outside of the track where there are huge empty parking lots. That way you don't have to wait to get in or out.
  21. Same here am I on the list? You can do it in any mode or just hotlap? I did a testlap yesterday
  22. I just copied over the content folder without the optional tyres. Not sure what the other guys are running.
  23. Do you need to install the optional tires? Where do they go?
  24. Hey Raz! Good to see you back buddy!
  25. Hey all. Good luck on this! It's been a long time since I've had enough free time to get in on one of these.
