Could any of you guys that use a pad (like me) give me a Sakitto or your best of the season setup (after this race of course). As I would like to figure out the games setup to see if I am just a average driver or a poor mechanic ha.

I don't know at this stage if I will get PC2.
I can't help you with any settings as I don't use a pad. I have, however, seen some interviews with Slightly Mad Studios saying that they have improved using the pad greatly on PCars 2. For the first one they admit that they totally missed how many players that use a pad and that they have corrected that for the new game. So it might be worth concidering getting the game ;)

Gentlemen, I'm terribly sorry but I have to withdraw from the final race.
As you may know, I'm changing to PC in the next few weeks.
Right now, my baby brother is visiting me from Germany and he made me a good offer on my PS4 and accessories. Shame is, he's leaving for Germany next Saturday.

I hate letting you guys down, but the circumstances are what they are.

I absolutely loved racing with all of you and hope to see some of you again on PC :)
Agreed with Yabba. Such a shame you miss the final round. Loved having you on board with LMP2-TEC. Be seeing you soon then . Months away for me before I'm sorted out .;)

I presume most of you guys, will be considering ProjectCARS 2.0. @Yorkie065 has been posting some amazing official footage from SMS.
I mentioned the Ligier Judd P20 for our next venture into Endurance Racing.
Well guys, here it is in all its glory.! ;) The New corner Cut Penalty system is in place in this Video . ;) Now we will see how fast the cheaters really are ! (y) or supposedly questionable quick drivers cope with this.:rofl::rofl: Awsome Introduction to P. CARS 2.0 ;)

Or play the game properly and feel the Imersion this time round for a more real experience with your racing. A lot of Improvements this time round with P.CARS 2 . Those that don't use a wheel, Should be definitely be considering one by Now. !

We Have @NEILY84 but he has failed to respond to race threads and messages sent to him recently . I Presume he has left AOR.
Apart from that, we don't and won't be having any reserves for the Finale at Sakitto GP.
We will have to make do with what we already got I'm afraid. .

@NEILY84 was online 10 days ago, might be on a holiday trip or something. One other driver we can ask is @Marcos Moutinho as he was a reserve for Dubai. And I can check with @Rib Ivey as he showed interest in doing RA. Besides those guys I don't have any other that can be reserves.

Can someone please change the weather :)?

Sakito in the rain is a nightmare! :)
Yes the weather is seasonally poor this time of year in Japan.
We have been ever so lucky with weather so far with our races. 7-Dry! :woot:
Me and @YabbaTheHutt have discussed this already. We feel it will be too extreme for 2Hrs of T-Storms.
T-Storms are normally intermittent. So if stays wet and T-Storms are around on the day of the race, when I set the weather . We will probably use it for 1 of the 4 weather settings we have available for the Race.
We will have more of an Idea on Race day, When I start to look in at the Hourly Forecast we are using for Live Weather for our races.
I wouldn't be to over concerned though.
As it's the same for all of us.
Very tricky though ! Agreed !and visability is a major issue for Cockpit users in car, as I've found out in practice. ;);):)

Nevertheless I was jus teasing... :) We are real race drivers; so if it's going to rain for 2hrs, we race in the rain for 2hrs :D

My biggest problem right know are rain tire temperatures. They go "red" very fast...

I agree on that! Did a test now and my tyres are up to 120C after 3-4 laps with 8% wear per lap. Tried intermediates and they held up better but they too get hot. They are about 1 second slower though... Also did a test in thunderstorm condition and the tyres was in much better temperature. The dry tyres get hot too, but it's mostly front right. Wet tyres and inters is getting hot on all 4 tyres o_O More testing is needed...

@Marcos Moutinho
I saw your message on PSN but I've already done my practise for today. Maybe tomorrow :)

@Marcos Moutinho have an awesome race :)

I had also wet tire temp issues when testing for a (at the time suspected) wet race. Didn't fully get it under control, but made progress by not only adjusting tire pressures but also the suspension, sway bars and diffs.

Sounds like too much hard work to me.

But I have committed to take part in this last race, so I should be there, regardless.

I'll probably run with the same set-up I have been using since Monza and limp round on wet tyres when it rains...

Limp around ! Lol. :wideyed: There are setups and videos out there on YouTube and plenty of stuff explaining the simple basics of setting your car up on P.CARS. just turning up to just limp around for 2Hrs is not really the way forward matey. ! We will more than likely be using setups for P.CARS 2 leagues. So probably a good idea you familiarise yourself with the basics of Car setup. So your more prepared when the leagues start up with P.CARS 2.

I spent a lot of time researching and spending time on understanding setups with P.CARS. coz i was pritty useless setting cars up. Sounds like you've give up already. ?
P.CARS Setup Database
http://projectcarssetups.eu/#/bycar
For setups. But understanding setups is YT were there are a heap of easy understanding instructional vids to go through. It's all about prep for League racing with P.CARS. I was 12 months behind everyone with setups etc when I joined AOR. And really threw myself in at the Deepest of Deep ends and wasn't competitive for months because everyone had such a big advantage with setups.. Help is out there if you want it. .
