    The time is there for a low 53.2, the trouble is executing it :banghead:

    The top 4 drivers are very close till L-shoot gets 3 tenths going down hill.
    Guessing that's where active steering helps the most.

    From my experience in this TT. AS only really gives an advantage on the exit of T3, and on the exit of the dipper. It'll also help if you mess up your exit from griffin elbow.

    Other than that there no difference I can tell, gt cars are pretty grippy!

    Slapped on Praiano's new tune, brought me down to a 1:56.206 for 132nd, and I know I can get into the 1:55s with some more practice :tup:

    Well yeah. I have actually raced at Mount Panorama twice and once on the very bike my avatar pic is of. BTW I have also done 4 laps in a Scirocco at the Nordschleife. I do get around a bit ;-) I actually put these two tracks on a par. There is really nothing else like them anywhere.

    So my advice (for both) is to practice (a lot) and stay off the Armco barriers ;-) The other tip is gearing. People really do not understand how steep it is going up the mountain at Bathurst is and how important the two straights are. IMHO the most important corner is Forrest Elbow (the last sharp corner before Conrod) because this decides your speed down that looooong straight. The next is the cutting (the very sharp corner as you climb the mountain) because this decides your speed up the hill. Since you are in such a low gear and going so slow controlling wheel spin here is crucial (obviously no TCS).

    By practicing you will get to learn where the bumps are that unsettle the car and which curbs you can an can't run over ;-)

    What you should think of is that in a time trial most people think they are racing the clock, their friends/competitors etc BUT you are not. You are racing the track designer. He has put all these obstacles in your way to try and trick you into going as slow as you can. Your goal is to work out his tricks and beat him. Think about it and then go have a great lap :-)

    Took off half a sec, now on 1:57.498 for pos #354.

    Using Stotty's gears on Praiano's tune with Jimipitbull's power setting.

    The gears work out. Leave power stock, set top speed to 124mph, set each gear then final.
    Thank you and jim for the tune. :)

    Ignore everything iv said... (Most of you probably do anyway :rolleyes:), but iv spent the last two days with my throttle sat at like 94% :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: Many wasted hours and meaningless laps and tweaking a car thats sunday driving!! cant believe iv not even noticed... I did wonder why i was suddenly struggling to match what i set originally and apart from the 4wd seasonals AS has always helped gain some time :( i shall fix the pedals 2moro and hopefully get a worthwhile run in!

    Wow, that's a worry. How does one know whether their throttle is set at 100%? Not that I think mine is not performing at it's best ability.

    Hi, just a question to ask you. Is it possible to use a DS4 controller to play cos I use DS3 (R2) as throttle but when it's too long race it gets slippery because the design of the DS4 R2 is just opposite to the DS3. The R2 edge is sliding up while the DS3 R2 facing down makes finger slip. Thks .

    Yes the new PS4 controllers are backwards compatible (so a friend said) ;-) I have not personally tried one.

    Hope it's compatible with GT6 game. I saw it on You Tube, it can be use for some games but not all games support it. Pls let me know Ok. Thks alot buddy.

    Cheers mate... Been intermittent i think for last two days... Just couldnt understand why i was just ahead of stotty constantly, just losing a touch on the exit after conrod straight, then last couple of days im about 5 car lengths back before final corner? Even when i thought i was on a better lap...

    Fixed it this mornin. The teeth on the plastic contact that the pedal turns was worn. Adjusted it a few turns and all good. See what happens tonight :tup:

    @RacingLine set the exact same lap time as TRL_Beau to tie 2nd place...

    And as soon as I get to 11th there's a massive flurry of activity in the top 10 and I get pushed down into the teens :lol:

    Hello everyone!


    My time is 1.59.7xx and thank you all very much for your advice in this topic.

    However, I have a problem with the transmission. My minimum speed limit is mainly 280 and it's hard for me to adjust the good gears ratio for that limit. Meanwhile, you are setting it to 200. How is it possible to drive the lap as well, since there are some long straights, where 200 is just not enough. Maybe there is something I do not know about that?


    Thank you in advance for your reply!

    Yep, it seems to be a BMW/Mt.Panorama monorail .. the absence of any kind of sliding and tyre screeching/smoke does make it look highly dubious. :odd:

    Wouldn't know. Don't have a PS4 yet, so probably as @TT_92 says.

    However some nice options are available.
