    I tried the C60, but shut it down once I was already 2 seconds behind my ghost after the back straights.

    Its proven capable of gold, but there's a reason it's not in the top spots.

    3:06.689! I broke the .06 barrier finally, which puts me at #151, but more importantly, fastest in my country, and second fastest in Scandinavia, as far as I can tell.

    I put active steering to strong, and even though it's a little bit slower, I get more consistent laptimes and fewer reds. Traction control at 0 is faster, but setting it to 1 made life a lot easier. I guess if you're a purist, you'd want everything off, but I just want to go faster!

    My delta time is around 0.7 seconds faster than now, which would put me in the 3:05 range. Does anyone have any experience with active steering set to "mild"? I cant tell the difference from "off" and "mild".

    It's a challenge I'll accept :) Besides, there's no shame in losing to a Finn in racing!

    Thank you! I love this track and was very frustrated, but as always a bit of perseverance paid off. Thanks again-)

    I tried it on mild, couldn't even get to the start line. It was like stirring spaghetti. Am now down to 3.8.8., brick by brick I build a house.

    Done with it,can't get gold,i'm happy with silver.
    3'18"556
    There's something more to gain,maybe a 3'16"-3'17" time but i don't wanna take to much risks,otherwise it would be red.
    Done it with the Pescarolo,i had to many braking issues with the 2J.

    I understand that people try to cheat and take short cuts but it seems to be overly touchy and I'm getting really tired of the ai cars hitting me in the other races and I'm the one getting penalized for it as well as they never seem to get penalties for it.

    Grab the Evo 905, go back a few days on this forum to uptoplog's tune but put the ballast at +3, then I'm sure you'll be happier.

    ^ This. Set your traction control to 1 and active steering to strong if you're struggling with stability. Thing will drive like it's on rails.

    Give my tune for the Pescarolo a try. I managed a 3:14.5 without adding any power upgrades, and I'm not especially fast, so popping on a turbo and restricting it back ought to make the gold fairly easily. That tune was aimed at making the car stable and predictable, so you should be able to really attack the braking zones and leave a bit more margin in the twisty stuff.

    No worries mate, to me making your own tune is better, because then you can make it to suit yourself because i've never liked the GSX and some of the tunes for that car don't suit me but i always edit them to suit myself because the car has to much oversteer for my liking.
    I did a 3:04.950 with controller with manuel gears and no active steering, I don't like active steering or automatic, but i had to change setup for controller as I used oil change with controller as I could get away with more oversteer with the controller

    Just for fun I did about 4 laps in my SRT4 Tomahawk. Best of 2.48.7xx. 286 mph in the straights. After tuning it for easier driving it was actually fun on this track. It can brake WAY later then the 905 too.

    :) Off the seasonals from the garage of course.

    Good old Maitland. We spent time there on our way to Bathurst in the late 60s and early 70s, cold but we still had our share of colder beer.

    I think I drive 10 red 3:05 laps today and a couple 04 laps. Before Thursday I have a 3:04/05 lap.

    Edit: I loan a wheel from a friend, But I'm not getting close to a controller time, I think i need a year to learn to drive with it. In corners you can make sharper turns but on the normal corners i loose too much with it. It is a logitech g27 wheel. I can take him free. But before I'm good with it ...... Respect for fast wheel drivers :bowdown::bowdown:

    With much training it can be faster.

    Sorry, I'm confused :confused: since when I set up the gearbox as you say, I cannot even come close to your values for the gears.
    The values I get are:
    Initial Final: 5,000
    Top Speed 240 km/h
    1st: 4,158 to 5,603
    2nd: 2,984 to 3,878
    3rd: 2,269 to 2,818
    4th:1,805 to 2,161
    5th: 1,502 to 1,734
    6th: 1,109 to 1,456

    What do I do wrong here? All the other settings are the same, except that I have High RPM Turbo (which you didn't mention) and I have changed oil and improved rigidity. And Power Limiter is @ 100%. May that be the problem? :confused:

    My apologies. Initial Final should be default, top speed 240kph.

    Every couple of days I log in to check for new seasonals, or QM's, but to no avail. So I went back in and to my dismay I was out of the top 750.
    So another hour and I got a 3.09.7xx lap.

    So many red laps that were faster, but rather than restarting them I kept finishing them to stay in a rhythm of some sort. I had a faster one going right after, but bit off too much curb after making my way back into the infield, went red and that's enough for tonight.


    I tried the QM on this track, it was brutal. Out of 12-15 drivers average and a half dozen races, I think 6 didn't cut off the end of the track and cheat. lol

    New seasonals are every other Thursday. They have been since August last year. Now, I'm not sure when Quick Matches are updated, but I would assume new races would come with the seasonal updates.
