Interesting. But is the mod based on WEC regulations or ALMS regulations?
The EGT5 is based on ALMS currently, we have converted it to WEC for our endurance league.
EnduranceRacingX by URD
So it is pretty useless to compare this mod with WEC regulations and statistics
Ah ok - didn't realise it was ALMS.
Well basic physics had to be done first place. Now i have to check what more i can implent, maybe different series tuning parts and so on or a compromise to cover both.
The rules are the same for the WEC and TUSC. The only difference is the offset for the different fuel energies. WEC uses E10 while TUSC uses E85. I'm pretty sure the Porker and def the AM use E10 even in TUSC. Stint for both should b around 65 min.
P.S. TUSC this year started messing with fuel loads for the GTLM cars as part of their BOP and to keep them behind the prototype challenge cars. IMO tho, in order to keep it simple and to save Ales' sanity, I'd suggest ignoring all that and sticking to the rule book.
If the tank varies from car to car, so it should vary in the mod. The fuel consumption should too. Ales should stick to the stuff he originally intended instead of trying to satisfy two different series.
I think it should be whatever the rules say too. 60-65 mins is close to a stint indeed. That is about 30 laps at Silverstone. What there is now is 40% more fuel endurance in the mod...if the gte and tusc regs are v similar.
I have looked a bit more deep into the suspension geometry. Is it right that all cars have the same geometry? And where does it come from?
Suspension geometry are tricky ones. Many in this cars are so or so similar but to make the right we would need complete mesurments on that. And the only unique one should be Darche suspension but that one is so or so not posibile in rf2 at the moment.
Thank you Ales, the mod is brilliant. Looking fwd to future releases and updates.
A fellow member of a league posted some interesting fuel numbers for the cars around Le Mans. The Corvette does 10 laps to a full tank, the Bmw 21 laps and the Darche 15. I didn't get word on the Venom or Arthur but I believe the Arthur is perhaps 17 laps.
15 laps of Darche around Le Mans ~~ 65 minutes
I only tested Silverstone, and when going the same laptimes, the Venom consumes A LOT more fuel compared to the Corvette. I averaged 3.2L in the Corvette and 4.0L in the Venom. At 115L tank capacity, the Venom can only go for around 57 minutes on Silverstone, the Corvette around 76 minutes. The BMW can go for 93 minutes though (2.5L per lap).
I've not played this for a while, but can I just say wow Ales, the rest of the cars are amazing! Cannot wait to put some decent laps in with these.
Yesterday in our Monza race the Porsches took 3,2 liters per lap while the BMWs took only 2,4 liters
lol me too!! ^^'
Just had another look -- once 90L is set for the AM the fuel flow appears very good -- ~32 laps according to the set up screen and ~30 laps max in RL at Silverstone. Not sure what needs to be done to properly balance the fuel flow for the other cars. Vastly different fuel usage makes endurance racing a one horse race from Germany it seems.
Hi Ales, can you give us any kind of news on the development state of the Ferruccio or the prototypes??
Was just giving the RUF in iRacing a go, and while its not the same car as the Darche, they have heavy similarities in feel and sound and that makes me happy. Good job Ales! Better than ISI content.
That were my thoughts too. But at least you could have implemented the different wheelbases and track widths.
Here is a table of the different measurments.
