    It's turbo lag. In the 80's f1 had turbo lag, it was not automatic like in f1 now.
    So no turbo answer time modification needed

    Generally under 8000rpm you have no turbo so you need to run the engine to atleast 8000rpm until the turbo spins up. so you should drive the car between 8000-11000rpm for the most part. but you do have extra 25hp to compensate,

    the turbo usually takes 1-2 seconds to spool up after 8000rpm and its like someone just flicked on a lightswitch so it will come extremely violently. you should drive the cars quite similarly to the 1986 cars so when turbo spools up when you dont want it lift the throttle quickly and then apply it gently back.

    I mostly ported over the A4 car from RF1 in, i just need to rework the interior cockpit a bit. otherwise its working as intended.

    I might tweak the stocksetups again for the cars but im also experimenting with the setups in general.

    So i have been working on the mod for couple days, i got an interesting idea, about the mod and i decided to give more choice for the drivers of the mod.

    So now the NA car has 3 different engines to pick from.
    that give progressively more highend power at the expense of lowend power and higher fuelconsumption.

    So if Cosworth V8 hits 275Kph, The Alfa hits 278Kph and Matra hits 280Kph. The turbo still hits 280kph+ and i decided to make the turbo engine to work with push to pass so now you have only 5 turboptions, but

    EngineBoostSpecial=(0,"450hp - Fuelsaving",, 0)
    EngineBoostSpecial=(1,"480hp - Race Low",, 1)
    EngineBoostSpecial=(2,"505hp - Race Med",, 2)
    EngineBoostSpecial=(3,"535hp - Race Max",, 3)
    EngineBoostSpecial=(4,"565hp - Race Extreme",, 4)
    EngineBoostSpecial=(5,"590hp - Qualifying",, 5)

    Boost level 5 is cleared for racing so you can use it on race to gain 565hp ie on a straight and then turn it down to save on the engine.

    But this engine level only lasts about 50 minutes so you have to be tactical about how youre going to use it and save the revs and the engine with the extra power, it will also make the turbo even heavier as it needs more fuel but now you have extra power.

    Qualifying engine works with push to pass now, you press the button and you get unlimited level 6 qualifying boost for aslong as you want to keep it on. So now you cant use qualifying boost on the race. but you can use it on the practice and qualifying with a single press of a button. so no one can abuse it on a race anymore.

    I plan to do this to the turboengine so you have pick between a L4 Single turbo and V6 Twinturbo engine with bit less power but better turbopowercurve ie the turbo kicks in earlier. so you still get the extra power from the engine that has worse driveablility but you have bit easier turbo option too when i get it integrated so the car is bit easier to drive. there will still be normal turbolag, i will make it spool 1500-2500rpm earlier probably. so down from 8000rpm to 6500rpm

    As you know the simrace at jacrepagua is today

    Next races.png

    so there is a NA based track and then a pure turbo track to drive. i hope to see you there. i will update the mod today for the new updates although if i dont get turbo modification fixed i have to probably cut it out of this weeks update but i will add it back in as i get it working. but turbo will atleast have push to pass

    Okay so i took most of the month off from working on the mod and worked on my novel for the time being and other stuff like that.

    However i did update the sound for the Matra V12 and also i Updated the sound for the Alfa V8 Twinturbo.





    I did also give ligier the animated drivermodel already and created the driverskins for the drivers. thankfully they were exactly the same so i only had to do one.

    So this post is more to say that im working on the mod again. But as you know i cant test the physics with the shoulder so i will work on the graphical aspect of the mod instead of the physics for now.
