GT3 Tire Info as used in Assetto Corsa

********* Copy and paste from the AC developers ****************

GT3 slicks. The biggest difference between GT2 and GT3 cars are their tyres. GT3 tyres are fixed for the whole season and the organization decides what tyres the car have to use. We provide 3 compounds that are not equivalent to their GT2 counterparts (worse).

Softs: 80-110°C . Wear VERY fast. We've been told that they were actually used only for a couple of times in qualifying.

Mediums: 75-105°C Wear linearly and predictably. all around tyre

Hard: 70-100°C Wear a tiny bit after a couple of laps and stay stable for a long sting. Not great grip but they are predictable and can be used in a wide variety of tracks and temperatures. Often "forced" by regulations on cars.

Hypercars slicks (Zonda R and 599XX) are a bit worse parents of the GT3 tyres. Let's say a generation behind. Rest of their characteristics is very similar to the GT3 tyres.

The tyre ranges are not perfect ranges but a min max range that you might not be able to understand a difference in tyre grip. Temperatures are also vary quite widely from straight to inside a turn, so optimally you need a tyre that stays at the lower end of the optimum temperature just before the braking zone and at the higher end of the optimum temperature at the exit of the turn. Not so easy to obtain.

In AC going outside the optimum range, doesn't mean the car will become undriveable. This characteristic is a double sword. You might think the car is good, but you're not driving on the optimum grip, so you'll lose time without understanding it. There's depth to be found and explored within the AC tyre model.

Another hint for tyre temperatures, as in real life, use more camber to heat faster a part of the tyre tread and then this dissipate to the rest of the tyre. More camber, more heat, less camber, less heat.

Hope you find it interesting.

Seb, if the developer apps are activated too, you MUST see the app list ingame. Jump in the car, not only being in the pits. Move the cursor to the right, and the app list must be there.

Never heard, that it isn´t working. The pTracker window have to be activated with a click on the app button. Exactly said, there are two pTracker buttons: One for the timing and one for the statistics (Although you can get the statistics with a couble click at the timing window as well.

Sorry Seb. I just want to explain clearly and with no chance to get misunderstood.  :drunk:

Obviously there's something wrong in general.
And even with the older version i say the button ingame.

I use v2.6.7, which is the latest version:

What was the reason? Not activated in the UI?
