Project Cars 2

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have been following a thread on the Z car forum where all the guys have been driving the same 240z around Bathurst. 

I was thinking we should be doing something similar on here, so I am thinking the 911R around Bathurst. Bathurst, particularly over the top is a track to sort out the men from the boys so lets see some times.

Current leaderboard

2:09:507 @Pokiou

2:09.874 @nbauto

2:10:240  @Big Dav

2:11.656  @MFX

I've got PC2 (and PC1) but never play 2 because my wheel is not compatible.  The kids seem to manage alright on the controller but I am hopeless on it without the wheel!

Need to get a new wheel setup. 

Anyone want to buy a Fanatec GT3RS wheel and pedals set?

It's great, but not compatible with some of the latest games.

I'm driving PC2 tonight at a friend's and looking forward to driving real Pcars for the first time, and not having to RUF pretend! I'm up for a 911R going down through the corkscrew, and let the PFA virtual IROC begin! Standby for a average time! ;)

This might be enough to get me to finally get it out of the plastic wrap it's still in and have a go ... Only have a controller as well as the old wheel I had doesn't work on PS4 so I look forward to setting the benchmark slow lap :lol:

I'm shitze at Bathurst - that track really doesn't flow for me.

Shouldn't we Porsche people be at the 'ring?

That is the point. It is a very difficult track to get right, and I am not an expert at all. Just thought it would be good to get a car and game that is the same for all of us and we can set a bit of a leaderboard.

Yes maybe it was a GT3 R. From memory it was in the top right of the Porsche options.

I used the GT3 R as I couldn’t find a plain old 911 R

I had a crack for 10 laps and got down to a 2.14.9 which is crap I know but it’s early days!

I used the stock “loose” setup but really struggled getting out of the left hander after braking hard for The Chase. Some tweaks should improve it a bit.

Cool, that is the start of times on the board :)

I just bought a better wheel so I'm keen to get back into sim racing - we used to race GT Legends once a week (it's got Porsches!) and it was great fun, then we got caught up in some Australian Carrera Cup series and I sort of lost interest

Best I’ve managed at the moment is a 2:14:112. Struggling to find pace down the back side of the mountain.

Also apparently the world record for the 911 GT3R on PC2 is 1:54. That’s insane

I finally got back from NZ and after about half an hour I put down a very shabby and beatable 2:13.604. My potential is 2:12.083 at the moment if I can string it all together.

Anyway, I have added a leaderboard to the first post in this thread so the current times to beat are up there.

I am on Xbox and I need to subscribe to Xbox Gold to go online (and access Time Trials and a bunch of other features). It really annoys me to have to pay another monthly subscription to something. Why can't I just pay a one off fee!!! :PissedOff: 

I will probably sign up soon, so we can organise something.

Without assists, we are men (and women) not mice 😎

When I first learn a track I will often turn on the braking zones, but as you get faster they are distracting and only give you a rough guide anyway. It takes a while to learn the balance of the car. I also don't include any laps that they don't, which can get really annoying  if you come off mid track and it won't accept your next lap either ggrrrr.

I will also add that when I first started trying to get times on the Z forum I couldn't get within 15secs of their times. Now I have gotten down another 15 secs and the top guys are still 6 secs quicker than me.

Haha, you knocked that 10 seconds down quickly, looks like you just needed some encouragement :D 

Time has been adjusted, so now I need to start pushing that track again 😎

Does it have to be PC2? I have forza 7 on Xbox, it has Bathurst and I think gt3rs. I might fire it up and see if the times are comparable.

We need to keep apples with apples, so it would need to be PC2 to keep a level playing field.

Yeah I can see that. Using a controller I could only muster a 2:10.1, in a 2018 gt2rs with race tyres and diff. (To try and dial out some of the ridiculous wheelspin haha)

I will have a look at doing a sim racing vid. There may be some interest I suppose.

Anyway, I had another half an hour or so trying to string a lap together. I have gotten slightly faster at a 2:12.473, but my potential is down to 2:10.709 if I can just get my sh!t together in one lap ;)
