Thanks! Played a few stages ... very good times for nearly everyone!

Germany done. I knew I wouldn't do well against the 4-wheel-drives here, but at least I had fun.

I took a stab at a grippy setup and drove the Opel like a proper street car, and at least on the dry stages it seemed to work pretty well. I think I was only a couple of seconds slower than the fastest Lancia on the night stage.

First post updated.... Finally back to gravel Back to Manta as well

Xpander commented on 21 November 2017 at 5:17 pm UTC

Damn Manta is way too bouncy for Finland stages. Even though i managed to tweak the setup so it wont bounce that much i was still constantly struggling with understeer when it bounced after a big jump.
tried to make dampers firm but then after each harder jump i lost a tire. so i set front dampers a bit softer and rear ones to firm side, that was the best i could do to reduce bouncing. Wasn't too fun to drive like that...

anyway ..Summary:

S1: spin with reverse needed
S2: crash into stones with the rear of the car which forced me to spin
S3: clean
S4: spin on the 90° turn
S5: clean
S6: crash into the trees with the front, because of understeer after jump
S7: huge roll on the straight after jumps, found myself in the forest, reversed out.

I just realized I won't have time to play in the weekend so I'll try to get this done by tomorrow.

Maybe you didn't go soft enough.

I drove the first two stages with that setup and yes, it was horribly scary.

Finland done. Had a few tiny forest trips in stage 2 and 3, but probably didn't lose more than a total of 15 seconds on them. Most time lost in stage 6, but a lot of good stages.

Catastrophy occured too late to have an effect, on stage 7, where my co-driver spat out "Is the left rear flat? To finish"

edit: Anyone else having trouble with the game freezing for a few seconds now and then using the proprietary nvidia drivers? Last upgrade was on November 1st, so it's weird that it only shows up now, but might be something it's not playing well with that got upgraded since last week.

Haha, Scary indeed, i was doing shakedowns with different setups, used all 10 shakedowns to get somewhat working setup still way too bouncy

No, zero issues. 387.22 drivers.

I used to get them quite often, but that was a few driver updates ago and maybe the game has been updated as well. Now I might get a tiny hitch or two sometimes, but not even in every play session.

if that makes any difference, i have a script which is keybinded, so when i go into gaming it forces my cpu to performance mode as well as gpu to performance mode. Its been smooth all the time for me.

edit: if anyone interested


performance.sh: https://pastebin.com/R1SCk7u8
schedutil.sh: https://pastebin.com/inL6sP7i


you need "Coolbits" "28" into your xorg confs if you want to use the fanspeed things also.
your distro needs to have cpupower also, if yours doesnt then you can use some other command like cpufreq or similar. pkexec is used to make it not ask for admin password, you need to create a polkit rule for that also ofc. head over to wiki of your distro i guess for that

So if i stop gaming i click another keybind on my keyboard which switches it back to schedutil
