Awesome work!!

Manual is definitely the way to go. I saw a video by Shaun Cole from The Simpit showing how manual is faster which seems weird but I am consistently faster with Manual over paddle shift every time.


edit - Wraith some of those mods look interesting. I like the idea of the USB adapter for the pedals. I have mine under my desk alongside the Saitek Combat Rudder Pedals but I move the wheel out of the way and clamp it to the side of the desk when I'm not using it. The downside is the pedals are attached to the wheel base so it's a right PITA with cables going everywhere and can't be good for the connections when they're at the limits of stretch. This would mean the pedals can be plugged in on their own and I can basically just put the wheel in the cupboard when I'm not using it.

Paddle shift is slower because you have almost a full second in neutral between gears. With the gear shifter, there is only a miniscule neutral period.

Finally got the wheel installed in a comfortable position, 3 quick laps and I've dropped 2.5s off my last time..



Now for some fine tuning and vehicle dynamic changes. Sub 2:20:00 incoming.

I found steering ratio at 14:1 was a good balance for cornering.

Who agrees bonkers needs to pull the plug on a wheel? Can't have the no1 competitor here using a dirty controller...

If wraith can do it so can you slackerooney!

Getting quicker, this is hard for me as I'm a consistent lapper for racing not a time trialer, I can lap at a constant 2:25:00 all day long but when you're pushing for the fastest time I come unstuck and push way too hard I've had a tweak and found a couple more seconds I'm now lapping at 2:24:00 - 2:23:00 so my setup is working need to tweak further for more acceleration now that I know where the grip is.
