    Here's my best attempt at driving the paved long hill-climb course
    10:32.128 - Hirochi Sunburst Track - stock tuning, but equipped with ESC

    I did a lap on the the gravel short course too.
    3:34.923 - Covet rally, all stock

    I'm using a DFGT wheel, set to 320* for both laps. I'm trying a tighter wheel setup as it seems to make for better recoveries while flicking the rear end around.

    Ran into a problem with my replay files. it seems that any recordings of time trails wont load. I would have to record everything over just as videos. I wont be ding any more of this until I get to the bottom of the replay bug.

    I did try with an electric car, 12:48.737 as I was struggling a bit and certainly was not pushing as it was enough challenge even to finish with slow driving :D


    Took economical low power model as others were bit much for me to handle today.

    Must say that edge of pavement adds huge amount of realism, really good improvements on map!

    I think that I have 540 degrees or 720 degrees, not certain, with cheap Thrustmaster T150.

    My first successful climb with the SBR4 Hill Climb. Clearly not pushing it as I still have to learn the track, and also I'm limited because I use a XBOX One controller as I don't have a wheel.

    My best lap with various cars in Pikes Peak paved long:
    10:25:522 - Sunburst Hillclimb DCT
    10:45:214 - K-Series Trackday AT
    10:46:468 - SBR4 Hillclimb DCT
    10:57:691 - Pessima Hillclimb sequential
    11:00:046 - Sunburst Track DCT
    11:01.220 - Sunburst Electric xcRace
    My game controller is Frsky Taranis X9D Plus.

    SBR4 is more powerful but Sunburst has better handling

    Hirochi Sunburst Electric 3.61 - Trust me, It's not outdated.

    Driving Tip: Before corner threshold braking. Entering corner increase steering and reduce braking at the same time. At apex start accelerating. Exiting corner reduce steering and increase throttle at the same time.
    The g-Forces UI app is a handy tool. In a good cornering it should look like half a circle.

    I did an attempt as well, I've been wanting to put my personalized Pessima up to the test for a while now and I've really lacked a competitive environment, or to put it more simply, Pikes peak is a lot of fun, and a great challenge for both driver and car.
    Car Specs :
    Weights : 1431 kg
    Power : 615bhp~ (Lower boost than daily due to temperature problems on long runs)
    Torque : 720+nm
    Gearbox : Sequential 6 gears, 4wd LSD.
    Engine : 2.0L DOCH i4, Turbocharged and ALS. @ around 41.5psi/2.8Bar.
    Tyres : Clockwise 533 17x9 Front, Clockwise 533 17x12 rear. Race tyres.
    Suspension : Everything Sport
    Topspeed : 331 IAS/km/h

    So here goes:


    I couldn't stop driving again, but I wanted to do it with a rwd car, and less powerful, so that corner speeds were more important.
    It was a lot of fun, and I do firmly believe that some of the best stuff was in the final run I did here.

    Car specs:
    Weights : 1428 kg / 3149lbs
    Power : 243 bhp
    Torque : 320 nm
    Gearbox : Race 6-speed H-Shifter
    Engine : 3.0L I6 NA Stage 2 Performance Longblock with a sports intake
    Tyres : Dreid LM-X 17x10 Front Wheels, Dreid LM-X 17x12 Rear Wheels, Race Slicks.
    Suspension : Sports Suspension, Front Race sway bar.
    Top Speed : 240 IAS/km/h

    11:28:072 In an FWD car
    Car: Ibishu Covet Track
    I only tuned the gearbox

    BeamNGdrive-014047356-RELEASE-x642018_12_2012_54_34.png

    Update: The gear ratios are -3.15, N, 2.05, 1.73, 1.40, 1.13, 0.91, 0.74.

    I discovered a solution.
    Record replay during time trial, after completing the course, before result pop up immediatly press Alt+R(finish recording). Then click Free Roam without exiting. Now you can replay this time trial recording. If you exit(or load another map or this map in another session) it won't load up.

    Note the 200EXs handling are not good, all of them tend to oversteer a lot, including AWD version. The Electric Sunburst is way better. Even the 200BX Demon is easier to control.

    Easy to control is not always best, many vanilla cars have setup so that they are possible to drive even with KB/gamepad, but way understeering for racing use.

    For example this one is quite oversteery, but find it very enjoyable, car just does not allow so much mistakes, it is finding balance of how well car copes with your driving, how much mistakes it allows to be made:

    WHAAAAAATTT????How did you managed to keep CPU at 40C while playing BeamNG???



    Interestingly the Piccolina Track did very well in PPIHC it had beaten the Kingsnake.

    It is bit high there as it was recording, can be as low as 32C at times.

    Skylake, I7-6700, VSync on, Biggest air cooler there is, Macho Rev. B with two fans. So fan speed does not really matter, CPU will be cooling pretty much same despite what fan speed I have.
    Case has AIO 2x place on roof, so any heat just goes up and out of the case, which helps VRM to stay cool (it really does not go much over 40) too as natural airflow cools those well (case is deep cool Tesseract with dust filters removed).

    CPU cooler in tests have been better than some AIO setups. Noctua has one model that performs better, but that is much more expensive, hyper 212 would of been half the price of this cooler, but cooling capacity is not as much. I think this one had something like 270W cooling capacity or something ridiculous like that, can't remember very well anymore.

    I built this rig to be as silent as possible and it has been quite nice for that.

    CPU can get up to 50C with all threads loaded, but even that does not require fans to be audible and still over 160Mbeams/s in banana bench.

    At idle whole PC consumes only 47 Watts of power, yet has power to play pretty much anything with maxed out graphics, while maximum power consumption is only 300W which mostly is by GPU.

    GPU is gtx1080, which I set custom fan curve, no matter what anyone says, cool electronics are happy electronics and as fans start early they don't need to scream.

    The Bolide Corse is way more oversteery than your Pessima config or the 200EX.

    It is power/weight/amount of rubber thing really, but also setup matters, My track Pessima is made to be quite balanced in that aspect, it has only around 300hp.

    That track Pessima is also quite good at small jumps, but there are few things I would like to tune more. Sandy Mountains map is ton of fun with it though.

    07:53.147 FR16
    08:49.029 FR17
    09:49.334 SBR4 Hillclimb - Asphalt (sequential)
    09:58.376 Sunburst Hillclimb - Asphalt (sequential)
    09:58.545 Pessima Hillclimb - Asphalt (sequential)
    09:58.925 Sunburst Hillclimb - Asphalt (DCT)
    09:59.948 SBR4 Hillclimb - Asphalt (DCT)

    The FR17 is very hard to control even with fufsgfen's Traction Control installed. That's why the FR16 is faster.
    All of the BeamNG-offficial Hillclimb vehicles can get below 10 minutes in this course.
    Vehicle with sequential handles slightly better than with DCT thanks to the reduced weight.
