Recommended Posts

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

You have 14 days to post your best time and see how you compare.

The next Challenge is:

Challenges > Hotlap: P4/5 Competizione @ Vallelunga Classic

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 14 days from the time of this post. :)

Thanks to Jon for this cool combo :thumbsup:

+1 :thumbsup:

I somehow overlooked this version of Vallelunga. It's indeed good combination of slow, medium and fast corners. Plus it's short lap so perfect for hotlapping.

I think I will make it my designated 'test track' to check the BoP between cars. So far I was using shorter version of Silverstone, but this one is probably better for long testing days. No doubt the food is better  ;-)

Yeah, its pretty tight. At one point you were 0.080 behind! (See, im not that fast :) ) I basicly made all the bumps & rebounds as soft as possible to lower tyre temps (atleast the description says it does that) but I still struggle with tire temps, and I might be beaten in this one because I prefer single seater :) (not saying i wont be beaten in that haha, but I feel more comfortable in single seaters)

Quite busy at work lately so I have no energy in evening to simdrive but I got up earlier this morning and did some laps. I dropped my laptime 1:11,6, so closer to Jon, but still quite a gap to archii.

Thanks for holding the fort guys.  Am back home but still preoccupied with stuff.  Will update the leaderboards as/when i can.  Normal service should be resumed in a couple of days. :yep:

Thanks. I really enjoyed this combo.

RiderGT got third laptime and I don't remember he ever had a chance to pick the next combo. So I will nominate him. I will have something in reserve though ;-)

  Congrats Piotr, very fast lap indeed. When I saw the lap time I decided to skip the one last try I was going to do. :)
