    Nice one :tup::tup:

    I think for now i'm going to take one step at a time and turn off all aids but leave on ABS1 and TC1...and see how i get on with that...its still a big improvement on lap times for me...Cheers mate:)

    If it was any other tune. I would say yes, but FITT tunes are locked due to tune restrictions. Also, it is the one set of cars which are all identical and feel good to drive. It'll be down to the driver to get the most out of it.

    I use abs 1 and TCS 1 with general tunes and abs 1 only with FITT tunes as I have to tune at that level in order to make the at competitive. That's why it's easy to drive with abs 1 only. My r8 chrome line is the same too. That is really good on abs 1 only.


    Keep going with abs 1 and TCS 1 for all tunes and you'll pick up loads of speed and feel a lot more confident when aids are locked out :)

    I used ABS 1 (like ever) and TC 2. Contoller setting was sensitive 0. Best Lap with the Mini at Brands Hatch was a 1:41.6.. from JCS if i remember correctly :cheers:

    Shaun,
    I can't remember if I went sub 1:40 with the Mini or not. I know it was close.

    Edit: I can't even remember who was the fastest with it.

    My doctor prescribed a tablet for me that helps with the memory & something else but I forget what that was :D

    It will be on the FITT review page which I would have linked on the 1st page on this thread. I recall you did an excellent time with it.

    You got a 1.38.542 with it, Bowtie 1.39.7xx, backnforth 1.39.2xx all times were around this but I think you may have recorded the fastest lap with my car.

    Of course, SRF on will help this tune but unfortunately FITT rules do not allow it. I would say that the time you achieved with TCS 1 is more realistic for this tune. Don't get me wrong, Im not slating SRF. It does have its uses on some seasonals where PD make them impossible for DS3 users but it does alter the FITT tune handling characteristics. Think of it this way. The FITT NSX is designed to be loose and driven on the edge. It is very controllable but requires full concentration to get the best lap time out of it. SRF removes this as it makes the car too safe and removes the inherent speed within the car.

    Like with Badger, the more you get use to reduced aids, the quicker you get overall in the game. If you can master MT (which I can't) then you can gain even more time but this will take a little longer. I know this from personal experience. AT transmission is still my biggest loss of speed but I am finding it difficult to change over to MT.

    The FITT rules for the NSX required the tune to be set up for:

    Special Stage Route 5

    Twin Ring Motegi East

    ABS 1 only with Grip level set to real.

    The tune will feel a lot more intuitive on these tracks if you want to see what sort of time you can post on them.

    My shift at work this morning was cancelled so I am using the time wisely. Spending a few hours tuning up the cars in my development list and packing up DVDs and things ready for my move to Bournemouth. If anyone is about this PM, I will be up for a few online races again.

    Probably about the same time as yesterday. If we skip quail and go straight to racing, we should be able to do 3 or 4 races in an hour. 1400hrs GMT perhaps?

    Can do, My net connection only starts playing up about 5pm GMT time when everyone else starts logging on in the area. I have fairly fast broadband speed most of the time. Search for Friends rooms and it'll be there at about 1400 hours. I do have a man coming to give a quote for removals at about 3.30 or 4pm today but that gives us an hour and half for a few races.

    Do you guys like the idea of race reports from race meets? or should I just concentrate on driving and trying to win a couple of races?

    Okie doke. Got it now :) You will also be pleased to know that the last two cars I am tuning need no driving aids other than ABS 1 to get a solid lap out of them. Some more cars for you to practice with so we can convince you that aids are bad. (driving aids i mean... incase you wondered)

    Unused FITT entries. I try to keep as close to the original as I possibly can. Just generalised so they work with more tracks than what they were originally intended for.
