    Small improvement to 1:45.605. With this amount of mileage on the car I can get a high .3 at best, but it's back to Route X I guess.

    I have no idea how people are running such quick times. I spent 45 minutes last night and 30 minutes this morning in the Z4 trying to come to terms with it's handling and the best I could manage was 1:59:050. I find I'm losing a lot through the Dunlop and Degner corners and then through Spoon. I also find that with my LSD settings (10/8/22) it really bogs through the hairpin in 2nd and takes a long time before any acceleration happens. I've played with the LSD settings but anything higher than 10/12/22 causes oversteer at other points in the track. What am I doing wrong here??!

    Thanks mate, that would be awesome. I can't keep up with your ghost - you disappear through the esses!

    Do you use only the high turbo and Racing soft tyres? This is strange because one of my first laps I drive a low 1:50. With no good tune.

    I think you do something wrong with your tune.

    Have you tried @Jeje6410 tune? I found it to be very stable, no wheelspin, good round the hairpin, and got sub-1:50 with it in very few laps.

    Maybe I'm just a terrible driver? The tune is one I've been using for aaaaaaages and always found it to be pretty good! I did notice I was using RH tyres and couldn't fit RS, so going to double-check on that tonight.

    I haven't used that tune. Will look into it. Thanks!

    Will do that tonight. Hopefully it helps! I find the esses I have to be on-off-on-off the accelerator, and the Spoon curve almost impossible!

    After switching to RS tire, in one lap I gained 2.4 sec. I think that's what it was. Car doesn't drive the same as it does on RH. It is however, much faster.

    Repetition . ' Dirty oil ' is advantage and contest is unegual .

    1. If change one part of set , must change and other part(s) .
    2. It is easy to make track for ' dirty oil ' . Make a cyclic track . ( Eifel flat , 10 km , ... )
    3. How is Hp and power % when car have 5000km , 7500km , 10000km , ... ?
    I ask because is important proportion kg/Hp . ( prior 500 Laguna L_Shooter_RB26 have only 17444 km ! )
    Important and the power % . The board of car with Nm line , Hp line , and rpm change .
    Informations of participation with ' dirty oil ' is important .

    It's been that way since last year's same events. You're just now aware of it.

    Wow! So I can report back already! The combination of slapping on RS tyres and using a tune given to me from @fordlaser777 I managed to go from 1:59:050 to 1:53:950!! And that was a far from perfect lap, where I had to save myself from running off track at three different sections!! What an improvement! And also probably my best rank yet at 3,600th.

    Edit: Improved to 1:52:421 for 1,782nd! Adjusted brake sensitivity and brake balance, and reduced downforce. Loving this!!

    This was a big thing in GT5 as well. The only time trial I've finished first at over 3 years ago required a Lamborghini Miura with dirty oil just to get it to 400pp

    Well then, I know the next car I'm grinding down. :D

    (I wasn't online much for GT5, I think. Honestly, I can't remember.)

    1:45.446. 11,000km on the car now but I can improve this lap by quite a bit to at least a high 45.1. If I get to 17,000km I might be able to 44.9. We'll just have to wait and see I suppose.

    Just me, not flaming anyone...

    I'd rather be 430th in a car I tuned and raced, than 25th in a car I ground into the ground for weeks to gain those spots against most who don't.

    To each his own, I'm usually done with these TT's after 3 or 4 days anyway. Unless I'm close to top 100, but even then I've never wore one out on purpose.


    Now I'm assuming people do it for QM garage cars too?

    I've had the TS030 worn out for a year and used it for a Quick Match a while ago. The other fast car was the Opera S2000. I was accused of cheating.
