    That's extremely impressive. Granted those are LMPs so I'm about to compare apples to oranges, but when I went to COTA in 2012 the GTs were 30 seconds slower than the F1s. That's OVER 30% MORE time!

    The announcers called it comparing apples to tennis rackets, lol. The current LMP1 Hybrids have over 1000HP and probably more downforce than an F1 car. Insane figures.

    How well do the cars handle with a wheel? It feels good?

    I'm not restricting it or anything like that, I'm just saying that's his style of technique and how he uses it to his advantage. It's smart since the GTR they give you has understeer he has found a way to eliminate that to continue the race with faster times.

    There are a few top tens not using the ebrake which to me then makes the others look like fools. Years past I like to watch immortal, and last I checked he hadn't used the ebrake for his round one TT(...Been over a week, so it could have changed)

    I'm tired of reading all these how fast guys using e-break and sliding the car to go fast

    It's simple do what you gotta do to get to the top of the leader board!! I only used the e-break
    1 time and I still ran 2:05.115 look at it as using it when your in trouble or miss your apex

    If top 10 guys are using it then I'm going to, sure this doesn't work in real life but come on guys this is gran Turismo not the best physics

    There's a guy with the name Let_Canada_In LOL. I'm surprised, the fastest North American driver is ranked at 33. I was expecting more people higher up that live in the North American region.

    I will work on it but this year doesn't matter since I'm from canada so they won't accept me. I'll just keep practicing until next year if they let canada in hopefully.

    Another down fault for me personally is that I'm under 18.

    I know all the D1 guys are busy with round 1, but you're all letting me get all the SNAIL time trial records :p Even Spa where I know theres a ton of time I didn't get!

    Give me something to chase, guys.

    So what is the purpose of doing the time trials? Besides practice what is the benefit?

    What the purpose of any time trial? To post your best time and try to be the fastest. :)

    I figure most people who like racing are competitive like me and enjoy that, but there's not very many in D1 or D2 competing right now so I figured I'd stoke the fire, as they say.

    Sorry I missed this post this morning! Was rushing to go set up my little girl's birthday party and wasn't able to get caught up on the thread until now. The TOPP and the lineup post has been updated! :gtpflag:

    Well, I bit the dust and bought Projects Cars for my PC. I'm really expecting good things, I hope I am not dissapointed. I know there are other guys on here going this route. It would be nice to have a Snail league, or something similar to continue the tradition of clean online racing.

    Just out of couriosity, how many snails are stepping up to PC on the PC?

    I hope everyone isn't getting Project CARS on the PC because we're planning some SNAIL events with the PS4 version. We have to wait and see whether Logitech will be supported at launch, but details will be coming soon. :sly:
