    @D.Painter I don't get it. For offline use the Shadow cars are in a separate opponent filter selection, so you can race with a whole field of #7 and #8 if you want.

    Hello,
    could somebody of the faster people upload a replay file of a fast lap here?
    Fast means between 1.30 and 1.33.
    I can't get faster than a 1.40 and i can't believe that i'm that bad. :rolleyes:
    I would like to compare a fast lap with my lap.

    @Michael K. Make sure you take the fuel out, select Soft tyres, select the qualifying engine mode, maybe reduce tyre pressures.

    *And now that I look again, also consider reducing the radiator, brake ducts, raise the rev limiter. Something for me to try next time.

    Also try to increase the max brake force to 100%, will be easier to lock up but you get the full potential. Probably not a major one if you're doing 1:40 with most of these basic tweaks already done.

    @Lazza Thank you for the reminder, i really did forget to change some settings, especially the tire pressure, qualy engine and max rpm.
    I did try with the almost default setup.
    I could do a 1.36 now.
    Now i have to focus on the tires, that i always brake to quadratic blocks when i push too hard. :eek:

    I have similar problem with logitech profiler.
    Has anybody managed to get logitech profiler working when joining session through the competition page?

    Low / mediums for me . . And drop those wings gradually and set up some mechanical grip . You can drop ride height quite a long way and lve dropped TC to 2

    It would have been nice to have the choice. Wouldn't you think?
    Haven't looked but I'd guess the Shadow teams are in a separate Mas. So really, How hard is it to just have a upload for installing them IF You Want linked here?

    Far from the only one here that thinks like this. Just the only one who will say so!

    1:31.6. Still loads of time to find though, as you can see I missed the apex of Copse by the width of Texas:

    It's alway interesting to see, that some people think that they know what others want/think/feel...
    I can only talk for myself and be sure, if i have something to complain about, i do it.

    Thank you very much for the setup, it gave me another second.
    Now i have to improve my driving, to be able to do a 1.31. :)

    Which is all I've done! Didn't see your name mentioned in that post. Did you? Guess so.

    Just to add. The McLaren WTF liveries that were added for that event A YEAR ago! Yes, still there. So how long will these Shadow rubbish be around for?
    Just having my say Bernd.

    Why the narcissistic urge to impose your will on others? You can just not use them.

    Let me expand my question. I hope it is not off topic.
    IIrc when joining session through the Mclaren competition page steam client launches rf2 with some additional parameters. If I configure logitech profiler to start rf2 with same parameters will that suffice?
    Any logitech users?
    Thx.

    Thank you very much for the Setup. I will give it a go at the Weekend. :)

    Thank you for the Video, but could you upload the Replay file of that or a similar fast Lap here?
    I would like to compare Corner and max. Speeds and Pedal Usage. :)
    I have the Suspicion that i don't drive aggressive enough.

    Personally, for whatever reason, I never had any luck with profiles being applied properly, so I just went into the settings and set the profile as the global one (or something similar; I can't remember exactly now, 'apply persistent profile' rings a bell but might be wrong too). The same should work for you, obviously a hassle if you want to use other profiles for other games (meaning you'll need to go back and change that option), but it should at least work.

    Why in the world do you need to lock the downforce values from telemetry of a car from 1993? It's hardly top secret data at this point
