Here are a few examples:

Winning the Race:
225.15 - 10 * 100 = 21,515

Average times, 25th place:
200.15 - 250 * 100 = -4,985

Low score, 35th place:
160.15 - 350 * 100 = -18,985

Please dont post your setups on the threads, as half of the challenge is getting the setup right, and the other half is the racing.

Oh Goddamn it.

Is there any big advantage playing this on Winuae over an unexpanded A600 ?

It has been more than 20 years since I last played this, and I always sucked at it, ugh.

When there are no others cars playing "bumper cars" with me, I am cutting the grass and painting the walls with the car. My best lap practice so far is 1:32.18 (97 MPH). I am sure Daminen will be able to release a new pack before I finish the 30 laps...

Car settings play a huge role here. Like I said, it has been 20 years, but I remember making a huge difference the way I conifgured my car. I used to have saved setups back at the day on the floppy.

Hey John, thats superb work. It must have taken a lot of time to go through everything.

Also great job keeping the stats up to date, thats something which gives EAB extra credit.

Do the laps on Yellow Flag also count for the speed average?

Tried playing it now, I stayed longer on Yellow Flags than Green Flags (THis is very realistic, hehe), ended up with the nose of my car up to the wall and without a reverse gear I couldn't get back to race.

How long a 30 laps race last? I mean in real time, on average?

A bit less than half an hour I think.

You can reverse the car by rolling the mouse backwards when you are at a standstill.

Wait, are you playing with the mouse ?

So its Winuae time, my Classic Amiga mousa kinda sucks, it always sticks when I move to the left.

Ok, this may need way more dedication than I was willing to give it. If I get lots of free time at some point I may try to finish one race just to have a score, but I think I'll end up skipping the first round.

If you don't have the motivation to find your perfect setup here's a setup that should do well:

Fuel: 40 gallons
Wings: 3/1 (probably front/rear movements counted from the top)
Tyres (Rubber+Pressure): RF/RR/LR/LF: m22/s24/s25/s26 (medium tires, 22 pressure and so on)
Stagger: +0,40 inch
Shocks: 4/4/4/4 (counted from the bottom)
Cambers: -0,5/+0,25/+1,75/+0,5
Gears: 9,76 6,26 4,28 4,20

Coagulus posted this in this thread: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=50436 and Zak said it works very well.
I only changed 15 to 40 gallons fuel so you'll have enough for the 30 laps.

Just tried the game yesterday (not with this setup yet). Seems inaccessible/impossible at first but it's actually quite simple: just accelerate, brake and steer. Gears are automatic.

Always brake before curves if you have a car in front of you so you don't smash into it (yellow flags-phases are no fun) and only overtake on straights!
Never played it for more than 5 minutes when I had it in 1992 but it's actually quite fun once you get the hang of it.

The race stopped when I was driving the 25th lap - was position 7.
Strange not to be able to finish the lap...

(100.89 - 70) * 100 = 3089

Thanks for the tips regarding the tuning. Don't know if it changed something but thanks

Well done - a positive score (with this formula) isn't easy to get.

Thanks. I am especially glad as it's the first time I play this game. Never been fan of "simulation" game. Only used to Mario Kart with my mini-Godzillas
Waiting to play SotB (even if I am may be bad at it now )

(129,12-100)*100 = 2,912

Maximum attack. Should try to calm down a bit, since nearly every lap was with yellow flags
