    I can tell you from chasing lines, your loosing a couple tenths at Eau Rouge. You HAVE to take it flat out clip the curbs and miss the cones. even though I was behind you by a couple tenths after Turn 1 I would catch upto you on Kemmel and was on your name plate going through Les combes. *this was yesterday btw dunno if you have improved that section or not today*

    You're on a DS3 right?
    Lift a momentarily between turns 3 & 4 this loads the front tires enough to get you through, you wont be as fast as a wheel user but this should help your time just enough to get you through Eau Rouge in 6th gear and exit at 265+ you just have to trust the car to hang on at the top you crest the hill. When i did it on my DS3 to get the car at 11pm sunday night I was getting through at 260 at exit, I wasn't clipping Turn 4 right so I had to let off a little for Turn 5. On my wheel it's easy as cake to blast Eau Rouge flat out, greater steering angle. No TC engaged in the turns by default.

    Yeah frustrating. I know GTA is designed to find the best of the best in the world so it's going to be hard but I would have expected them to at least set the gold time low enough so most players could get it

    Have you still got any tunning notes for that car so I can have them and PM me with the notes, and then I could get the Minolta Toyota 88C-V '89 out of the stockyard and play with this car to get it right. The thing with Praiano tunes they don't suit my driving style but with @shaunm80 tunes do work and I very hardly touch his tunes or change them for the seasonal races, and If I have to start from scratch with this car well I be happy doing that.

    I seldom write my notes down. I'll pull the car up later and send you what I have on it. I will tell you right now it doesn't like to turn at speed, and even with long gears it still spins up the rear tires in low gears but with. 0.88 PtWR that is expected.
    it's still in early stages of tuning one of my methods with aero dependent cars is set it to min and tune as much mechanical grip as I get then increase downforce till its stable and responsive so that you get the most speed as you can from the car.

    The last event is going to be with the newly developed Nismo GT-R LM... And knowing that the car is FWD i have a sneaky suspicion it's gonna be an understeer fest like the one we had with the "popcorn popper" we know as the Chaparral 2x.

    That's just my thoughts tho, so don't quote me on it..

    Even though i didn't need too, i went for another go at the torture test at Spa. There is no way this event is fair to us using a DS3 controller. This event favours those with a wheel in so many ways it's not even funny..

    Anywho.. I managed to shave off about 6 tenths off of my previous time.

    My new time: 2:12.096

    Ohh.. On the 700pp race car seasonal i did something i said i'd never do again.. Yup, you guessed it.. I went for the "popcorn popper" detuned to 700pp and blew the helmets off of the opposition. Funny how things work out, eh?


    Have a great weekend!

    I was at Monaco with the 2 Fitt Minis today and only 50 sec. slower than Hamilton :) so what can i say ? i was faster with both tunes from Otaliema but the most pleasure to drive was with the old Mini from Shaun . i can recomment both Minis for the next Sunday Cup Event :lol: i did 3 lap with every tune (clear Laps , always restart if i touched the Wall and this happen many times ) TC1 , ABS 1 everything else off . the Pics shows the best Lap

    No TCS is great with these cars. I recall you saying you had finished testing and just had to post.... I am waiting eagerly to see what you thought of all the entries.

    Hey @shaunm80 and @Otaliema , how about a FITT Special LMP1 at Le Mans ? You would have a good tester because i will do many many Laps there to practice for the last Academy Event

    Thank you for the test. Glad you enjoyed them. Especially my mini go kart. That old mini is fun, a little slower than the others but can't beat a good drive in an adult go kart. Go Hamilton for tomorrow. Excellent pole position lap he did.

    If you have an idea for a FITT comp. you should put it in the FITT thread. See if it has any takers I know FITT comps are sorted for the next two months but there is a break after that point currently. The only problem with lmp cars is the cost. Could be off putting to some testers, and possibly tuners. I do like your idea though. I don't think there has been a FITT lmp event as yet.

    Thank you for the testing my. Sounds like they did what I built them to do go fast, not be nice :lol:
    I'm gonna have to take @shaunm80 cars out for a pleasurable drive around Monaco.
    Speaking of great drive take krenkme's Life Step Van for a spin man what a car, err van, wait go kart, no it's a van, no no it's a go kart in desgise as a van that's it.

    the problem is i'm not sure i want to be a part of FITT , this is only for the real Tuners . i don't agree with some regulations so i will leave it like it is. my post was more a joke :)

    You could always be a tester don't have to tune. And there is no rule that says you have to be a serious tuner to par take in the events.
    If your referring to the no TC rule that's to level the tuning field, it's strongly encouraged to test with out it but you can test with it as long as you use it on all the cars.

    Edit added missed word in sentnce
