    Exactly, that final left hander is such an easy place to lose the car and always results in a penalty. You have to commit to it otherwise you lose a pile of time but if you touch either curb then you are going end up facing backwards :lol:

    I don't think anyone would actively try to improve a lap time by corner cutting anyway :tup:

    I've done that on past challenges I know the lap was clean watch the reply on 3rd person/chase cam to make sure I didn't cut on accident.
    None see above.

    @787bcgr @sinof1337 @ImToLegitToQuit
    @Dagger311(I know you said you were not going to have time to tune but just thought I would give you more time if it helps!)

    Gentlemen, all tunes are do tonight by midnight here EST, however, with the changes to the rules there is a 48 hour extension available if you need it. Please just let me know if you will be posting before midnight Tuesday.

    **This ONLY applies to the Roadster Class, Street is not due until NEXT Sunday at midnight.**

    Could everyone who has already posted their tunes just please check and make sure the links are working correctly as my mouse is having quite the attitude and double or triple clicking everytime I use it. :boggled::grumpy::rolleyes:

    Thank you, Bowtie

    No problem, but the extension is there if you need it so do not feel pressured. Enough entries for testing to begin.

    Thanks. Not sure about the other classes. If I have time. The Elise entry came together quickly. Hope it's fine tuned enough.

    I have debated not entering this car because I found a huge number of flaws with the car I was going to post. it had the oil changed and therefore didn't need a turbo to hit 460. I remembered that about an hour ago so I had to start fresh and having a turbo ruined the suspension and LSD setting I had so this car has had only about 30 minutes tuning and driving time. I didn't want to pull out last minute though giggity so here is my MG.

    [​IMG]

    SUSPENSION:

    brakes 7/7

    RH 95/95
    SP 8.80/5.70
    CMP 4/4
    EXT 5/5
    ARB 4/5
    CMB 0/0
    TOE .05/.20

    stage 3 engine
    sports ecu
    semi racing exhaust
    sports cat
    tuned intake
    low rpm turbo
    99.5% limiter

    after adding power parts
    set final gear to far right
    set max speed to far left
    set final gear to 4.080

    LSD 10/14/6
    Triple plate clutch
    full weight reduction
    no ballast
    abs 1

    I was surprised by the number of times I ran over either/both of those curbs and didn't loose the cars completely, they were typically saveable. This was near the final tunes' setups that I could do this though.
    On actual testing I would stay far enough away within reason to keep it fair though.

    I guess there will be a Matte Pink battle to the finish line in this one @Motor City Hami. :D

    Elise Type 72 '01

    Note: The horsepower and torque ratings are incorrect, just ignore them. I made the picture before I realized those were just the default values I use in my template. Whoops.

    I'm just building your car and I think you may have forgotten to add a sports exaust to your setting sheet.

    I just spent some more laps with the newly painted VX220, silver :) Got 51.8s on 2nd lap :eek: with a slow 20.1s 1st sector, with 19s 1st sector and better exit on last corner, it would be in the mid 51s, not bad for 450PP and technically stock ratios :p

    Are you using a standard clutch or triple?

    Okay gentlemen and testers, it appears all who have signed up have posted so let the testing begin. If another entry comes in out of no where, it will only be allowed within the next 48 hours because of the extension. Drive safe and keep it on the tarmac boys. But most importantly, have fun.:tup:

    They're both difficult in their own ways :lol: The lotus is easier to drive fast but gets really twitchy if you upset it, the TVR is safer and more manageable for the most part but the brakes feel like they need bleeding, I look forward to seeing what people do to improve them

    so true, racing brakes and a clcik up helps the TVR greatly and the Espirit is just fun, with my course tunes they are with in 4 tenths of each other and I can chaulk that up to line on the track.
    I can hang the TVR out to dry and it will come back, and like you said the Lotus will just clock you up side the head if you do somthing it doesn't like.
    Why do i feel like PD got the handling carictoritics backwards :odd:
