Title: Frozen (2013-02-24)
Post by: Duplode on February 11, 2013, 04:22:23 AM
Hopefully to be thawed next weekend ;)

It certainly needs a slow car, but which? (I did a quick test with the GT3 and found it amusing, but I certainly don't expect you to agree!  :D)

Just tried GT3 again after a few test laps a long ago and the first thing that came to my mind was:
"What do you have against cars with cornering ability>0?"
BTW, track looks good and it certainly is entertaining with such car, but I'm afraid it's not that "live racing" friendly unless we use a less complicated car. But maybe it's just me as I am testing this while being sleepy, a bit drunk and with a huge thunderstorm outside that is distracting me a bit.

The test laps were completed with Audi and it wasn't really hard to survive without crashing (the only critical section seems to be the banked corner - cork up/down part, you need to be very careful with the braking point). However, you have at least a week to practice it. :)

I suggest to use Audi / Lancia / LM002 / Ford Ranger.

It was not a fully serious suggestion; it wouldn't be fair anyway to race GT3 here so soon - familiarity would give me too big an advantage  ::)

I suggest Carrera. (From your list, however, anything could do except Audi - a break form 45+ days of ZakStunts with it would be nice.)

;D ;D ;D (yes, the Audi tracks are quite annoying lately, I promise to leave it for the second half of USC 2013)

Carrera doesn't really fit - all the above mentioned four cars have better handling in corners. But I'm okay with any cars, even with a fast one.

Post by: Chulk on February 11, 2013, 05:35:25 PM
I would choose either Carrera or Lancia, in that order as Lancia tends to magic carpet easily (not as easy as Audi but still) and it could end up being pretty frustrating in a track with many jumps and banked roads.

i think it would be interesting with something fast (mclaren) - it could be a nice exercise to ride slowly and with wisdom. :) (like in real life :P )

Recommendation for even higher safety:

- X builds the track (> 24 hours before the race)
- Y selects the car (right before the race; of course not from the full list, but let's say from 5-6 cars)
- Z modifies one or more tiles (right before the race)

Do we really need more safety measures than tile changing? Are you willing to cheat that much? I'm not, so if it were only for me, tile changing would be more than enough. I don't think anybody is willing so hard to cheat as to need all these...

What do you expect from somebody sinking deeper and deeper in the swamp of legal cases? ;D

Indeed. Perhaps not a full-fledged competition website, but at least a proper archive of races and results. Starting that was on my plans as well. The simplest thing to do might be keeping it within, for instance, the Southern Cross site tree (kind of like USC/USL).

I support the idea (of course with additional analysis).

I think decidedly cutting the icy part through the grass definitely paid off.

Fastest lap: Chulk (#5, 01:00.45)
This is becoming quite usual... maybe I should work on making them more regularly instead of a one on one off pace.

BJ, you coward! You missed it again! :D

However, you should be rather afraid of Chulk's performance as he's an enthusiastic & voluntary last minute track editor :D (kidding)

Even though I was not able to join, I drove tonight the track per LeStunts rules. I did one testdrive prior start, with Audi, then raced of course with the Carrera. See attached.

Lap times:
1:20.50
1:12.40
1:03.65  (realized I can make an outer loopcut intead of inner cut :))
1:03.75
1:03.95
1:00.80 (realized I might as well do some RH as still have a lot of time left...)
1:01.70
and then to the midle of the u/d cork and still had 35 seconds to "send my replay". Could have been a really nice run if I realize the loopcut earlier.

hope I can join the real event soon :)

Probably. I sensed that but didn't commit too seriously to the idea...

You would be battling with CTG for second in the worst case  :)
