Man for my hot hatch car i'm torn between two tunes for it.
Tune A; This car does what I want when I want and is pretty quick 1:38.xxx quick small learning curve.
Tune B; This car needs total precision to drive miss a break or throttle point and your in the dirt, get it right and it's OMG fast, like 1:36.xxx fast (in my hands anyways) Huge learning curve like every corner has to be relearned huge.
I've tried to hybrid them with no luck the settings are too touchy on tune B to really play with.
It took close to 40 laps to string that one together and it wasn't clean cause I clipped the inside of the second to last corner. Like I said huge learning curve for the tune.A 1:36? Really?.......*scrambles for notes, runs back to the drawing board*......
I ran a 1:38.007 and thought that was fast, maybe another 4or5 tenths to shave(in my hands), gonna have to find more.

@Motor City Hami ugg that's a tuff call, maybe destabilize car A a little to speed it up? If the car is that stable a little loose won't hurt its fun factor, I don't think anyways?
That could be it.For the car that I like, I have done every trick that I can think of to free it up. It handles really, really well, but just doesn't quite carry the speed as well. I think it comes down to maybe PD liking one car over ther other... that ghost PD extra bit of performance?
Spent an hour last night trying to find more time to shave and yup, made the car worse...Leaving it alone and will go with what I have and see how the testers handle it. It's a little loose and needs slight learning, but will easily run low 1:38's all day.
What kind of times are you getting with your Base Model, as I'm in low 1:32 range and have hit 1:31 twice. Just curious to see if I'm close @Otaliema @Motor City Hami
If extra time is needed due to it being a holiday weekend, I can be flexible with the deadline IF given advanced notice.I must be slow at Brand's Hatch. I am in the mid 1:39's with both cars. I did run one very lucky 1:38.5, but this is not my best track. I have learned as much about driving this track as I have about making FFs turn. I will be submitting a tune with settings that you have never seen from me before. Crossing fingers that those who know this track better will be able to find another second out of the tune.
As for the Race Car, I have only slapped a tune on it and driven five laps. It's ok. I like GP/D well enough. I will be out of town with the family on Friday and Saturday. Hoping to be back in time to test a little and post the tunes, but if not, this entry was tuned in five laps of testing.

**shutters and wonders if that was wise**
Would much rather go against Hami than a handicapped version of him.
