Official MEW Race of Geeks


#21

Yeah that initial burst off the apex is tough with 0 TC


#22

I use ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the assist and will not remove them for a long time as you can see I am the williams of the group


#23

Is there a setting that you can take the pillar out of your view?

Only played about 10 minutes so far so not played around with the settings yet


#24

Yes you can. From the main settings menu from the main menu you can change the cockpit view to have the pillar or not. I turned if off immediately.


#25

Look what’s just been add to the XBox Game Pass Library:


#26

Ok just bought it for the amazing price of R82 on steam. Will see if i get a chance to participate.


#27

I got some warm up laps in. A bit off the pace it seems.


#28

Naw I am off the pace you are on the edge :smiley:


#29

Much better runs on PC. But I had an issue tonight. Once I plugged in my wheel, it did not want to give any force feedback at all. No feeling through the wheel on grip or understeer, nothing.

Still, I managed to set some pretty decent lap times i feel:

Time set with the Haas. Pretty much on par with what I did on the Xbox One, which I am happy with. Apparently my ultimate final time I can set with this car is a low 1:23.2

The Merc went very well. Totally a different machine in feel and grip. It was speed for days!!!

And now I’m playing on PC, the total friend time:


#30

Quali 1.25.48 ( Redbull racing)
Race 1.25.936 (haas)

I enjoyed this. Just couldnt eek any more time out


#31

I got caught out with work and loadshedding :frowning:


#32

Jis you guys are too quick. This game is more difficult than I thought. Did not have much time to try though as I was away the whole weekend. But I will put in some more time for the next race.


#33

Anybody want to add last minute times? I know load-shedding didn’t help.

F1 takes a little getting used to so the next race is in Bahrain on the 31st of March.

We will keep the cars the same (HAAS and any car you want) - can start practicing now


#34

Right, Bahrain and I are not friends. Not my favourite track to drive, but at least I tried and set a provisional time. No screenshot unfortunately, but I’ll take one later in the week when I do better. My initial time was a 1:29.806 with the Haas. I’m okay with it, but still need to play around with the setup. I don’t have the car setup correct yet. T9 and T10 is absolute bitches, and where I loose the most time. If I get those right, I should easily get the time down to low 1:29’s


#35

Is that that horrible little left that makes the next left impossible to line up?


#36

That’s correct. A corner that you cannot break flatout because you’re not breaking in a straight line. It’s very tricky, and I end up breaking earlier so that I can have less break power. I also move break bias a lot more to the rear before the corner, otherwise I absolutely will lockup into that corner, go wide and the whole lap is ruined.


#37

Do you play around with the break bias lots?
That is something I have not done at all.

I stick with you up until that corner, then it all goes to crap


#38

I do play around with the break bias, but not for every corner like a real F1 driver. I have T9 and T10 where I change the break bias to about 55%, then back to 60% for the next corner after the straight. My last break bias change is before the last corner, going up to 62% to get the car to bite more into the corner and hopefully getting a better run out for the pit straight.


#39

Will play around with it a bit. I feel extremely slow in this game though. Think I am doing many things totally wrong


#40

What is your wheel’s rotation set to? The default 900 for me is crazy hard to deal with in F1. Even 360 feels like its too much.
