If you try that with the stick, I think it would a lot harder to do the same lap time with the same setup, not saying you can't do the lap or better it with the stick, but you might struggle with the steering, gas and brake smoothly. I have tried GT6 with steering wheel at a mate's house ( G27 ), it's damn a lot easier for me to steer, gas and brake accurately. With the stick, I have to be very precise and smooth, especially with MR cars that tends to be twitchy. I tried the Bathurst too when I 1st got the Diablo, I got around 2:25s in my warm up lap, that was with slow 1st sector of 21.0xx and messy last sector. My best 1st sector was 20.6 second. Okay, just had a look at my replay, got 2:24.6 actually I can see 2:23s, and maybe 2:21 with a wheel. Wheel usually faster, I had a hard time keeping the steering smooth with stick, very tricky with the last half of Bathurst.
