So You Think You're Fast? AC Hotlap Challenge: Countach S1 @ Bridgehampton 'Fall'

Recommended Posts

full-19230-51132-full_19230_49230_untitl

AC has an official in game app for comparing times with your Steam friends, so time to have a little fun!

You have 7 days to post your best time and see how you compare.

The next Challenge is:

Challenges > Hotlap: Lamborghini Countach S1 @ Bridgehampton (fall version)

Note: This is an addon track. You can get it here:
http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/bridgehampton-race-circuit.6604/

Prerequisites:

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 exactly 7 days from the time of this post. :)

Nice combo!  I've actually driven this one before, and it is a holy handful.  I will have to turn track surface up from "dusty". :P

It seems there is no much that can be done with setup but single change  made it feel much different for me.

Go much higher with camber, it stabilizes the car in corners, to the point that you can take with realitively stable steering angle and you don't have to jab the steering angle to fight understeer.

This car hates any rapid weight transfer in any axis

Do the gear down changes before corner, if you are late with it then blip the throttle otherwise it will snap as Bokononist mentioned.

With default setup I could get to high 47s, after camber change I found two seconds as car is  more smooth in corners and I am carring more speed on apex.

I don't remember if I changed toe in toe out angles. When I am back home this evening I can post the setup if anyone whishes.

Guess we can't begrudge him the top spot for doing such a fantastic job on the track. :thumbsup:

Hey thanks for fixing the account Darren! I probably have driven more laps around here than most for obvious reasons ;). There is still time to be made with this thing but I started to push too hard and it really bites you especially if you don't hit the last two left handers right.

Anyway here is a video of the 1:42 lap.

This challenge has now closed.  Congrats to Lilski for kicking some serious butt on his own track and thanks for bringing this amazing creation to AC. :thumbsup:

Thanks to everyone who posted a lap with this challenging combo.  Nice driving guys.

@lilski,  Would you like to chose the next car/track? or you can nominate someone else if you prefer.

Glad you guys enjoy the track! I don't get to drive it much anymore since I've been working on Riverside. It was nice to go back and try and tame the Bridge again!

A combo I always liked was Brands Hatch GP with the Lotus 72D. Plus I didn't see the track or car in the previous hot laps.
