Hi all,

instead of randomly uploading setups into the respective Race Thread, Ill try and put them in here. My idea is that everybody familiar with the  weekly racetrack should have a chance to join and participate.
I hope it will help some people, especially the ones with less time for training.
I will start  with the car class Im racing myself, which is "Class C, Ranked -11 and beyond". This will be mostly Cooper setups for the years 65 and 67, and BRM or Lotus 63  :o  for the 69 Mod.
If anybody is in need of a different setup, please tell me. I cant makeem all, but at least I will have a look  :)

Happy racing  :gpler:

To kick this off, heres a Cooper 67 setup for the Adelaide GP next week.
I dont build special race or Quali setups, so please remember to add enough fuel to this one  :D



Edit:
After some more testing, I found the default Cooper setup really decent, with some minor tweaks:



One of the best default setups Ive driven so far  :thumbup:

Heres one for the BRM...Maybe not the best car around here  :D  Again, default one with minor tweaks...My hats off to Jim Pearson or you ever made the default setups  :bowdown:

Just made it sticky as we're discussing an other way to give some help with setups/replays.
My quick idea is to have a sticky GPL setups thread with links to seperate GPL setup threads for all of the tracks we have in our rotation. But as I said it's in discussion :)

Nothing worthless  :P

I think this is a very good addition, as it only adds to the variety to have other setups here,too...And I dont have anything against this  :D

So, everybody that wants to submit any setups for the ADC venues, feel free to do so..Ive checked the ADC tracklist lately, and will start to add anything I already have in here...Sooner or later we will need them  ;)

Oh, and thanks to Bernd for making it sticky  :bowdown:

Sounds like a very good suggestion to me Bernd :)

Maybe also tuck the track threads away in their own sub-forum (like the Schoolhouse) to keep things tidy and to make it easier to go direct to the relevant thread and see where there has been recent posting activity?

Can't promise to post any new setups meself, what with being a bit of a setup doofus and all that :bangin:  but I know a fair bit about what's out there and can post some links and/or the setups. Might even be worth me re-posting one of those general setup compilation posts I did a while back...

John.

:clap: Thanks, Wolfgang and Bernd. :clap:

I doubt I'll be adding anything myself, either. I just steal from others and hope they feel flattered. :)

This setup worked well for me - thanks.  With a better driver, I'm sure it can go places.  

Mike, did you use this one?

I must admit having difficulties to come up with something useful for the 69ers at IOM  :(

I did some testing laps with a modified BRM 69 PG Nurby setup, and this worked .
But I wouldnt go as far as to say I do know my way around that wonderful track  :mellow:
So this is just to give some of you guys something to race with...Hope it helps anyway and anybody...

Paul's IOM setup is pretty good Wolfgang, but thanks for attempting one any way :)

I can't race this track to save my life.

Modified Silverstone Brabham setup worked ok at Imola.  Anyone else got anything better?

I guess the question is what 'worked ok' translates to eh?
Given that this is a '67 race I'm kind thinking that Brabham isn't available to the likes of thee?

For what it's worth I did a few laps with the Cooper and managed a 1:36:99.
Depending on your agenda of ok or not,  I'll post it here regardless hehe.

As there are no car restrictions for this event, looks like everybody is entitled to drive what he wants   :)

Feiner Kerl's setup packages actually have Imola setups. At least the packages I found, once upon a time, include Imola. These are pretty forgiving setups for most of us average drivers. With the confidence they instill, even a driver such as I can run a 1:36.57 at Imola in a Cooper. He's got a setup for everything except the Lotus. I think he figures everybody and his gramma makes setups for the Loti. If your heart's set on Lotus and FK, you can take the ".ea1" on the end of a setup, change it to "lo1" and tweek the gears. Voila! A FK setup for Lotus. :)

Hope this helps. Thanks for starting this, Keir.

BTW anyone have a good replay for Imola. I just feel like I'm a little lost on the "proper line" for some of the turns here. TIA

Jim

So, heres my lot.
I only did a few laps, to check if everything works. The estimated laptimes are based on Pribluda times, not necessary real PBs.
Lotus should do : 1.33 to 1.34
Eagle: 1.34
Fezza: 1.34   and
Brabham: 1.34.5

Most of you will need to tweak the steering ration, as I dont use the steering hack and thus have them lower than usual. Although it isnt an Alien setting  ;)

As there is a cooper setup posted by Mark, a Brabby one by Keir and some Feiner Kerls by Jim, I didnt bother including BRM and Honda. As it is unlimited car choice, anybody taking one of them will be in for a fight  :)

Happy racing,

Wolfgang

As Wolfgang said, it's an unrestricted race.  And I like the Brabham.

Cheers for the setup Wolfgang, I'll give it a go :)

I found this replay for imola if it helps.

http://www.sim-repla...ola13096Fer.zip

Quite how he manages to brake so late I'll never know, I really must try and learn this brake power technique but it's quite beyond me currently.
Is there a circuit that lends itself to learning this technique or is it something that just happens over time?

Javelin.
            I believe that to get faster you have to practice,practice,practice  and in time you will gain the necessary skill to acheive  the faster times. I really do not think that there are any short cuts to becoming quick.
Regarding tracks to learn braking techniques I would suggest Silverstone and perhaps in the 65's first to enable you to perfect your line then move to the 67's and put in plenty of seat time then I think the times will come.

Best of luck

Ah the memories they come flooding back. 'seat time' where you get to plant your buttocks in the p.c. chair for hours on end.
