SR Hotlapping League

Post by GianniC on Sun Aug 30, 2009 7:17 am

Might be interesting for our Cabbies who're fast and can't make the fixed league shedules ?

Think you are fast? We challenge you to prove it!

Fast in 1 car? That's OK, but do you want to know who is the quickest driver over all the LFS cars? Welcome to the SR Hotlap League 2009!

This league is designed to show who is the ultimate hotlapper. Each event will last 2 weeks, with a total of 8 events. The winners will be the drivers who are the quickest in each car, plus the quickest overall. There will be an individual Car Championship and also the Ultimate Hotlapper League. If you want to just use one car, you can. But to win the Ultimate Hotlapper, you will need to set times in as many cars as you can.

To enter the league, simply join our server named [SR] Hotlap League and set a time in any or all of the available cars. No signup and no schedule issues!

I was 1,5 seconds slower than the current leader, with a 50,62 I think and got ranked 20th out of 33. Not bad in my opinion. Smile

I was doing that in the XRG and the setup I used can´t have been bad because Pallukka made it, and he really is not what you´d call slow. Wink

Just beat your 50:38 I drove a 50:37 with a BawBag set. Razz Now to get after that 50:20 GTi by GC, getting close, 50:25 cyclops

Got my UF1 down to 53:61, I'm doing my best to represent SCCC in this league, if you find me on that server i will gladly share all the sets I have.

I´ll give you a little tip. Use hybrids instead of normal road tyres. Over a short distance they´re quicker, which comes pretty handy if you want to get you laptimes down. Smile They overheat pretty quickly though. Wink

Grats, you´re the only of us to be in the top 50. I´m 51st. Razz But all cabbies are within the top 100! We achieved something! Very Happy

I´m in a fight for postition in the overall rankings with Anty now. Smile Just improved my times abit and I´m now directly behind him. Razz I think he will be rocketing away from me in round 3. The FWD GTRs won´t be something I can be fast in. Wink

My thoughts on previous/current/future events

Post by Deutschland2007 on Wed Sep 16, 2009 8:17 pm

Event 1 - UF1, XFG and XRG @ FE Club
Very nice combo. Easy to drive and fun. Didn´t think I would do that well before I really hammered it. Rookie gave me the tip that I should use hybrid tyres and thanks to those I was faster than Tukko with the XRG. Razz

My times: UF1 -> 53,72 sec (60th place) ; XFG -> 50,83 (87th place) ; XRG -> 50,26 (30th place)


Event 2 - TBO @ SO Classic
Seemed a fun combo when I first tried it and the first couple of times it indeed was, but now it´s somehow lost it´s funfeeling. I may not improve my times anymore. I´m currently faster than AA with the XRT and the FXO, but I think by the speed he´s showing that won´t be the case for much longer. Wink I´ll concentrate on practicing for the third event which starts in 9 days. Yes it´s still 9 days. Still, I wish the rest of you luck to beat me. tongue


Event 3 - LRF @ FE Gold
What to say about this? Well, FE3 is one of my favourite tracks in Live for Speed. Why? It´s because I think you can have fun in any of LFS´s cars there (perhaps even with a VW Scirocco Wink ). The LRF class is the fastest road car class and it´s cars aren´t known for being easy to drive so I expect (even with a prize to win), that not that many people will take part in the 3rd event. What does that mean for me? Well practicing and taking the chance of being a couple of more places up than I´m usually. Smile


Event 4 - FWD GTRs @ BL GP rev
The first (and luckily only) round where my biggest weak point will show: It´s called front wheel drive. The track itself doesn´t have than many turns, but lots of badly angled curbs so that especially the XFR could roll if you hit them. Unless I find some good patch X setups (which I like more for the FWD GTRs) I´ll be losing lots of places. Surprised


Event 5 - GTRs @ WE International
Finally! The first event with some proper cars in it! Very Happy Still won´t be easy. Westhill with it´s fast sweeping turns is a real challenge for every driver, and the fact that this round will be driven with the GTRs doesn´t make it any easier, should be even more difficult to be honest. FZR should be fine. XRR has a very twitchy rearend (don´t worry about GTAL now that´s the other way round and the GT2 isn´t that beasty Wink ) and the FXR understeers like hell. Will be the biggest challenge on the calender and I think that the results could be pretty surprising. Surprised


Event 6 - LX4 + MRT @ AS Cadet
After the very demanding combo of the 5th event I think the guys at Sonicrealms have made a very sensible decision with this combo. LX4 and MRT are a joy to drive and AS1 is a nice and easy track. I´m already very looking forward to it. Should again be one of those events where the number of people taking part should be pretty big. Wink


Event 7 - FBM + FOX @ KY National
One of the best combos of the season and defenatly my favourite! The FBM is a joy of a car to drive round that track and with it´s masses of mechenical grip it should be very easy to get it round the track and having fun. The curbs, which the FBM sometimes has problems with, aren´t one there either. Smile FOX? The easiest of all the single seaters to drive, has a fair bit of power and provides some good racing and good fun. Of course we won´t be racing there, but it still was worth mentioning. Wink I think as soon as the racecars come in with their slicks and wings I even could help you out with some setupproblems here and there. Cool And with any shadow of doubt I think that will be the most fun! (unless the devs release a patch that makes me hate openwheelers lol)

Event 8 - FO8 + BF1 @ AS Grand Prix
The two fastest cars in LFS on the longest track in LFS! It will be the last event and defenatly the most difficult one. The FO8 and the BF1 are two of my favourite cars (I bet everyone else here hates them lol) and it again will be fun to drive round there. If you ever need setups there or at any time before that, just ask me, I´ll help you out if I somehow can. Smile By then the devs should maybe have given us their "christmas present". Very Happy Still far away from now though. Wink


I hope it´s not too much for you guys too read. Very Happy

Thanks for all the efforts you took, Herr sccc|von-D., nice writing too!

Personaly ist too ambitious for me. I'm happy if I make it to the wheel now and then. Thats why I tend to stick to one combo, or one car for instant pleasure.

From Sccabco historyview we've come from those little yellow XFG cabs (since 2003) and we had no complaints by our customers sofar.

Don't let yourself dissapointed by this'but I'm not really able to join those big events.

It´s ok if you don´t like it. Smile Main reason is having fun and that´s what you have with the combos you like. I like to have a bit more variety in my life. Sometimes I do things diffrently. I enjoy this league very much. I don´t want to prove anything with this, that I´m faster than person X, Y and Z, I only want to have fun and hotlapping is fun for me. Smile

Ant WAS leading sccc with all cars. Yes, he was. His XRT time just got beaten by some german bloke with a sccc tag. Razz Very Happy

And at this point I just want to thank the devs for the ABS setup option. Wink
