PostSubject: Set C7042 Power and Brake options by Car not Driver   18/10/2017, 14:26

Hello.
Our typical race night is a 12 race championship.
We race 4 sets of 3 races
Each set of 3 is with a different class of car.

My Scalextric Porsche needs a very different set up than my Slot it ford GT.
Which is vey different from my Scalextric NASCAR etc...

It would work better if the power and braking options were set at the car level and not by driver.
For a drivers points to tally properly the driver name must stay the same for the championship.
We change the car for each set.

So in a Championship the driver stays the same and the cars change from class to class.
So the C7042 settings will change with the car selected.

The way it is now the racers have to remember their individual car setting and go the computer and click on driver and make the set up changes manually for each class.
This is more than the guys want to do between classes and frankly its hard to remember the settings.
It also takes a lot of time and cuts into our racing time.

I think this would be a great change.

Thanks

We do it this way. If all my racers have a NASCAR. Then I save the cars like this. Say the driver is Dave. Then I save his NASCAR as "Dave NASCAR" .
Tom's is "Tom NASCAR" etc. IF Dave has more than one NASCAR he races the it is "Dave NASCAR 01". That way each driver can tailor his car to be exactly the way he likes it and it comes back that way when he pulls that car up the next time. Also we have three tracks we race on and the car settings for each track are different. So for us saving the brake and throttle setting by car instead of driver make more sense. I think it gives the system a lot more flexibility.

Oh ya I take a picture of each car and use it in the car setup page. That way the image on the screen shows the car the driver selected and it makes it easy for them to know if the settings are correct!

Power option by car already asked: http://pclapcounter.winnerbb.net/t1131-power-level-by-car

I totally agree with both speed and brake option by car.

The more we race the mode sense it makes to have the C7042 settings change with the car selected.
Hey forum users please chime in on this as it seems to me it would be the biggest upgrade that PC LAP counter could incorporate. It is a great piece of software and our racing would not be the same without it.

Thanks
