So You Think You're Fast? AC Hotlap Challenge: Merc AMG GT3 (NOT SLS!) @ Barcelona GP

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

The next Challenge is:

Challenges > Hotlap: Mercedes AMG GT3 (NOT SLS!) @ Barcelona GP

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. :)

I haven't tried this yet but i think in the interests of fairness Archii should be forced to drive all these events in a Reliant Robin so someone else has a chance :D

Im fine with a ballast, but I dont think you can do that in Singleplayer. I can drive on the hards, but not possible with every car and it wont make me much slower, maybe 1.5 secs :D But thats why I usually nominate other people to choose a pick.

There is always a benchmark driver, Razcass (or something similar) in the past and others, It is great to know what's possible. Some replays would be awesome though Archi, to let us bus drivers know where we can improve...:ahoy:

Haha I was thinking about uploading a replay! I just closed AC, I improved about 1,1 second but there isnt really much more in there with the current setup im driving. If I get the chance I will upload replay.

This challenge has now closed.

Massive congrats to Archii for smoking the opposition yet again!

Thanks to Brun for the car/track recommendation and everyone who posted times.  I'm out of town next week so we'll take a short break but SYTYAF will return when i get back - along with some (well ovedue) plans for getting back onto regular Sunday racing.
