I tried to race on Sebring last night, just testing. I have an issue that might take some time to overcome. When I'm pulling out of the garage, my car seems to take on a life of its own. It's revs up very high, pulls out on its own, and immediately drives right into the fence.

It sounds comical, but it is happening.

Figured it out: Autopit was on and not working correctly.

I had better not race with all of you today. My best lap on Sebring was 2:23. I'd just be in the way.

That is great. That will help a lot. I already have watched it twice and will watch it many more times.

I probably will not race in the big race on Sunday. I don't want to take people out before I get a little more experienced. As you saw, the car sometimes gets a little squirrely for me in some turns.

I appreciate the time that you are putting in though, so it is not wasted. I'm racing practice and testing on the track to get better.

I think after a few more test runs, it will be time to play a little with the racing wheel controls to see if I can get a little more comfortable and in that way get better times.

Edit: I know you mentioned a little about your wheel setup but I didn't hear it that clearly. But, I was racing and couldn't reach over and press the talk key to ask what you had said.

Thanks for all the help!

Cheers!

I don't know if the SimRaceway wheel has it's own software that will allow you to set the sensitivity and the rotation... It's much better to set it through the wheel software than the in game settings, as it's best to leave them at default, especially for steering...

Good to see you're getting your times down, and no need to rush, There's some racing here next week as well... Gotta make sure you are comfortable with your set up first... But don't feel bad about making mistakes on track... We all do that, and it's a big part of racing, just look at last years F1 season, the guy who made the least mistakes won...

I think you should just bite the bullet and come race with us today Kurt. If you are worried about the car being a bit squirelly at first, remember you can turn on traction control and stability till you get used to running in traffic and feel a bit more comfortable in the car. The best way to learn is to do and you will learn much more racing against real people than you will racing offline against AI. As long as you don't suddenly change your line without warning to allow a faster car past then you will be ok. The guys in the P2 cars are usually pretty good at getting past us slower guys in the GT2 cars as long as we hold our line and don't weave around in the hope of helping them to pass.
