    Not yet. Only ran two cars at 700 PP. I like the lower PP car racing better than all out speed wins.

    Your 7:02 is :eek::tup:

    I think every good driver can make it. You need a bit luck with that crazy ai and take a good slipstream. When I'm in the 6 minutes i take a picture.

    One of the main rules in racing & minimizing lap times is, "keeping the wheel spin to a minimum". If your spinning & squealing tires, time is being lost...

    Very appropriate for this challenge.

    You're right, I was pretty annoyed tonight and just posted 6:59:371 with the new Chaparral, What a little aggression can do.

    After seeing you guys crush in the 2X, I decided to give it a go. End result, an easy gold. I definitely think it is the best car for this challenge.

    I had a little bit of luck in this race, I will not be doing this one again because of the penalty system.

    20161123_191054.jpg Tried a crazy car today. The same car used by the great Fordlaser - Chaparrel 2X Vision.

    This must be the only car that reaches 400 km/h+ without any slipstream even. I touch 415 km/h.I was able to make about 3 seconds till the next timing checkpoint. The only downside is that if turning, don't brake as the car will stop turning & go straight. Hence, it's important to have the right speed before making the turn.

    I didn't expect to win with this car but it was a fun experience nonetheless.

    I make a 6:57 today with the 2X. Clean racing and only 1 penalty of 3 seconds because the AI hit me....

    It's not so hard with the 2X to make a 6 minutes total time. Fun :cheers:

    In the last round before that turn to right after the long straight, They are crazy there. The pesca was 2 seconds behind me there but he hit me in my back.... He fly of the track and i cant make my 6 minutes lap. Then i try it again and make 2 almost perfect laps, Only 1 penalty but that was the AI fould.

    Not to mention that whenever an AI car cuts through a corner, their speed doesn't drop, as if nothing happened. Only we suffer horrendous penalties of varying seconds.

    However, the AI cars have become bonkers lately. I love when they make mistakes & run wide into the car, many times bumping into each other or pushing each other off or wide into the corner.

    Very true!! They don't seem to get the ramming penalties either. I've been hit from behind and still gotten the penalty, not fair...

    Anyone who can drive a GT40 should apply the same principles in the 2x for really fast lap times. "Brake in a straight line & early, accelerate out of the corner" or "slow in fast out". This is probably why fordlaser777 & others achieve sub 7 race times.

    It's a funny & strange thing I've noticed. The fastest lap times don't seem fast at all, but feel reserved or restrained. A strange anomaly I've noticed while in the ZONE. Anyone else notice this phenomenon?

    Yea the LM55 has a brake issue which I'm working to resolve. Touch the pedal & it's as if the car locks up & the tires going crazy. I think it can make it into the sub 7s & I intend on getting there. Then onto other cars for the same challenge. "THE SUB 7 CHALLENGE"... It's on now... lol

    In my 6:58 lap I had two 3 second penalty and a few mistakes but it is so hard to get 2 clean laps in, the AI got to be in the right place at the right time to get a good race time and offcourse you got to drive as well, good luck Kossie :tup:.

    Finally got P1 in the 677 PP BMW, stock. Didn't see anyone crash, didn't touch anyone and no penalties. All good things. The Chaparall 2J was more than a few seconds faster despite it being at 663 PP…

    What AI car got the 6:58 time, because I have never seen an AI do a race time like that.

    I got a 6:58 with two sub 3 & 1/2 minute laps and only got fourth so the AI was a few seconds quicker than that

    If You were not in the best / fastest car on the grid, the AI as of now could beat You to the line. They've become crazy off late.
