Since we’re all couped up with nowhere to go, what better way to pass the time than to race Tesla’s online?
We took it upon ourselves to learn how to create a car for Assetto Corsa, and we’re creating a server where we will have scheduled sessions where the community can log on and digitally race.
Comparing our MoTeC data from Laguna Seca and Buttonwillow to the data produced by the simulator, we fine-tuned everything from the power output to the suspension geometry and aerodynamics to make the car perform and feel like it does in real life.
The result is pretty cool, and the car is super fun to drive and very consistent. It should make for a lot of fun once a pack of these things are all running together in close proximity!
Our first test event will be at Laguna Seca this Sunday, April 26th at 4pm Eastern, 1pm PDT. If you have a steering wheel we encourage you to come and join in on the fun!
All of the details on how to join and get the MPP developed TM3.R for Assetto Corsa can be found here: https://www.mountainpassperformance.com/assettocorsacup/
There is still a lot of room for car development, so if you or anyone you know has experience with modding cars or 3D game design, please let us know!
From the team at MPP, we hope you’re all doing well during this difficult time. Stay safe my friends!
