    I need help at GVS as well. The tip I was given was use 2nd gear to get the optimum speed at the slow corners. You'll only need it for a split second but when I started using it, it allowed me to set the front of the car before powering out of the corner in 3rd gear.

    I was hoping I could sell that car and never ever have to use it again but unfortunately it's still around. This game should have a car crusher, when you're done with a car an animation appears with the car you hate in it and you get to watch it get crushed. I'd get more enjoyment out of that than having to race it one more Sunday.

    Think I only use 2nd in 3 spots. And, not for long in any case. The car has gobs of torque, so, until you get into 4th you don't really need to take it to redline before shifting up.

    Keep it smooth and hit your marks. And ease the car on the throttle on lower gears.

    1st corner: 3rd gear,

    3rd corner: 5th gear, ( keep it full throttle the best you can )

    5th corner hairpin: 2nd gear,

    6th corner: 3rd gear,

    9th corner: (that kink before the hairpin) 3rd gear

    Hairpin: 2nd gear

    11th corner: 2nd, then jump it to 3rd right when you exit the corner and take the long right hander towards the straightaway

    13th corner: 3rd

    14th and 15th corners: ( final hairpins ) 2nd gear. And then full throttle from there.

    Lloyd, I realize you're tearing it up, up there in D1, but I think you might have some turns labeled incorrectly there. T2 at GVS is a 4/5th gear turn, depending on how high you decide to wind out 4th. Turn 3 is the right hander near the top of the hill, and T4 is the left, both of which can be taken in 5th, leading out to the chute to the hairpin, which by my count is T5. T6 & 7 are the double left, and 8 & 9 are the double rights, T10 is the left hander before the first tunnel, T11 is the left hander to the second tunnel, which is turn 12. T13 is the 3rd tunnel, Turns 14 & 15 are the tight left right complex leading back out to main straights. An argument could be made regarding the next left sweeper as T15 which would make the last right hander out to the start/finish straight Turn 16.

    For anyone who might be interested, if you put 3 or more wheels over the curbing and onto that concrete runoff pad, at the exit of Turn 15, your lap is dirty.

    The easy not complicated corners. I don't count as a turn, that's why lol I'm only counting the turns that truly matter. :) I don't count the easy just barely do any turns, and turns that still connect with the corner since you'll be in the same gear as well :)

    But yeah, next time. I'll just count all the corners. Just to make sure nobody is confused, cause some people might count all the corners and some people don't ;)

    has anyone thought of having division 1 split into A and B with promotions and relegations as per normal thus allowing those pseudo Snailens a way to adjust to the fast steady pace. Just thinking.

    OK so I have them mis-numbered after 11. Skipped T12 in the second tunnel. Thanks Handlebar. And, according to that map the left sweeper out to 16 isn't a labeled turn.

    I have edit that post accordingly as well.

    Thanks @Handlebar ... Very helpful... We should do this for all tracks we are discussing. Just makes it easier to follow which corner is under discussion

    @Slick66

    Here's your official S.N.A.I.L. Welcome Post!

    Thanks for your interest!
    Here's what you need to know (and do) in order to join:

    We run a clean league by enforcing a strict penalty system based on the S.N.A.I.L. OLR (which is a modified version of the GTP OLR). We also expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide.
    Please become versed in both if you aren't already. Once that is complete, please follow the steps below to complete your entry into the league:

    1. You take the S.N.A.I.L. OLR and Racecraft Test

    2. You run the Time Trial and submit your information by 23:59 EST on Saturday night if you want to race this Sunday.

    3. @JLBowler PM's you with your assigned Division that we feel will give you the closest competition. You will be added to the drivers list.

    4. Send a PSN friend request to the Race Director or Primary Host from your assigned SNAIL Division. Sunday night you will need to sort the online lobbies by friends and join the lobby named 'snailracing.org Division_(x) based off your Division placement from JLBowler. That lobby will be where you race Sunday.

    5. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    The original post has everything you need to know about what to expect on Sunday night and what you will need to have completed in order to be competitive. If you have any questions, please feel free to post your question on the thread.
    If you have a preference for car/wheel colour and racing number, please follow the instruction contained here.

    During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.
    Welcome to S.N.A.I.L. :cheers:
