    I don't know if I should bother with this week's TT, am especially bad with the Cobra not to mention the slippery tires.

    After ripping it up in the 787B for a week this car on the throttle doesnt seem very powerful also the tires seem a little grippier to me when I do get on the gas.

    Strange because I always thought this car was a real handful even on racing tires.:lol:

    It's not a better lap than yours Jack, but the T1 split should give you something to shoot for before you leave on Tuesday.:sly:

    Not been around for a while and may not get the chance to run much this week, but for what it's worth here's where I'm at after 25 laps...

    14.699
    20.914


    Will be my last week for a while as well, as we're moving to the US at the end of the month and I'll need to sell my PS3 and G27.

    :cheers:

    Hey Al:
    Big improvement over the last few weeks! Is it the wheel or do you have a burr under the saddle. :lol:

    Very tricky at first.

    PB is with a sloppy T1 at the moment.

    I'm not too sure if I'm gonna bother with this one. I probably will, but not completely committed yet.

    It took about 40 laps to get a handle on the throttle control. I used TC to get a feel for it and then stopped using it.

    Upon further inspection, this lap was dirty. But that's okay cause i gained .250 at the line on this one.:)

    :ouch: upon further, further review (after seeing leaderboard) I had the wrong tires on. Forgot arcade mode goes back to default. :guilty:

  24. This combo looks cool, I have said I was going to run the previous 2 weeks but never got round to doing it because of the release of Trials Evo on Xbox and I've been hooked on that.

    Need to get in to GT5 mode though for GT Academy so what better way to get used to the game then driving a Shelby Cobra around Madrid!

    Just realised Madrid is the closest I have been to beating DHolland, being only a hundredth off him. That was back in my prime though on the DS3, need to find that pace again! :p

    All the way up the leaderboard! :tup:
    No offence but do check your specs to see you're running them correct.
    I know I would if I were in your shoes now.

    The kink isn't all that difficult to take flat out when you are as slow as some of us. I make it about half the time without lifting. It's not really flat out though, as I use TC here, that little bump right before the kink lightens the rear enough to activate the TC so there is a slight blip in the throttle even though the pedal is planted firmly to the floor.

    Also, I am not sure it really gives you much in return. The faster you are coming out of the kink, the longer the braking zone up to the last corner, so I think it's a wash.

    But it sure feels good when you make it!

    Blew a .3/.3 in the last corner. :tup:


    Regarding the kink, it's possible to take it flat out but it doesn't do anything to your time. Good throttle control works better.

    EDIT:

    Another session, started seeing .2 in T1 (best is .266). Best T2 so far is .720 (at checkpoint) and .350 (at split).
    So there's at least 2 tenths for me to find 'till I can be happy.
