First laps on this:
0'48.138
1'28.046

Top speed 290 and not using 2nd gear. This car does not display the engine placement and the traction wheels, but I think it is between a FR and a 4WD. Seems like the car turns better if I do not accelerate while braking.

lovely! a favvie car at an allright-to-cool track. rs'3 arent that bad either so 👍 👍 👍 to the wrs stewy :bowdown:

to CMir about the car specs: looking very quickly i found one abt ttr on the web (tho prolly from a later year) that had an FR setup. since its competitors - beamers and mercs - had fr setups too i already guessed that'd be the case.

Well to say again great to be back on tarmac. I finally broke out the wheel this week. I have an old DF which still works ok. Kind of banged up from gt3 use and moving twice. Things seem to be a little smoother than with the DS2. I did the Laguna endurance last week to get a feel back for it. It feels really good through the esses right after the first corner set after the straight. Anyways some t's from about a 10-15 lap run gearing 300

t1-50.198
t2-91.046

Very nice combo, Sjaak!!👍 First times of the week.
T1= 49.526 T2= 1'30.161
 
Quite busy last week. But not so sad to miss a dirt trial. I'll take a shot on this! 👍

... hopefully with my coming soon DFP

Well with classes being done on wednesday and me FINALLY having a PS2 this week. Hopefully I'll participate this week, and what better way than a DTM car on Suzuka?

Sorry for the tittle but it is to me a nightmare as well as a challenge to do it good each lap at a time. If you think you got it all together something goes wrong the next lap it is therefore a nightmare.

Enough excuses these are my first laptimes.
T1: 51.433
T2: 1.33.450

Good luck to all of you and have fun

Greetings Le Mans

To be honest, I don't really have time to race currently but... well... who can resist Suzuka...?:sly: Some splits from my first session. Used DS2, but will probably change back to my DFP later this week.

T1: 48.408
T2: 1'28.953

Sure wish I could find my DFP for this one.:ouch:
first 10 laps with DS2 didn't produce much but it's a start.

Feel a need to take a break from SFGTP results preparation and the continuing mission to get 100,000 A-Spec points and drive every car in the game, to leap back into the WRS for this one! :drool: Nice combo Sjaak! 👍

Had a quick tinker with stock gearing to begin with, and ran about 6 laps, followed by another 7 or so with the gearing dropped to 320km.

T1 48.594
T2 1'28.559

So much fun! :D

That is a great start Nick! I'll have to check the results of the SFGTPII now 👍

I had a quick 45 Min session and balls in your court CMir ;) Great competition dude, I'm enjoying it and I'm sure you'll destroy these splits too :) Like you mentioned, its a lil' understeery.

T1 - 47.998 (47.9 :))
T2 - 1:27.902 (1:27.7)

I lost about .2 overall for the whole lap, or that I can see initially.

Great one sjaak!

just half an hour yesterday night to warm tyres... Really a great combo, Suzuka is not my favourite but with the ABT is really fun.

T1 50.934
T2 1.32.446

edit: gearing @ 300

Thanks Jerome,
been plugging away at this for another hour and a bit, and while my split times have gone up a little (and I haven't had chance to write them down yet) I have broken into the first of my laptime goals for this week, and improved my overall time by just over 3/10ths, which is nice! :D

Getting 130R right, without lifting / braking too much is a key here, but learning to stop in time to get Casio Triangle right after carrying more speed through 130R too is an adventure in itself! :eek:

Time to get on board ...

T1: 49.802
T2: 1:30.631

Wasn't able to race last week but this week should be better. Reasonable start for me after one session but then again this is a track (and car) I know pretty well ... so we'll see if I can improve on this. It was off a horribly slow start so it's not hard to beat in the first few corners anyway.

i'd like to try manual gearing this week, but for that some shifting directions might be nice. any volunteers? 👍

Steve,
cant see moaibob on Luxy. I should be the third last, as usual.... and behind you, as usual...
but getting into Luxy is something to encourage this poor, slow, ever-third-last desperate pal :lol::lol:
will u help?
Tks 👍

First time out times feel not too bad

48.843
1:29.378

using 290

Still not sure of the fastest way around the hairpin - sometimes I'll diamond the corner and beat my ghost and the next time I'll hug the curb and beat the diamonding ghost.
 
Quick 20 minute go, fair bit of time left out there I reckon..

T1: 49.609
T2: 1'30.537

300 gearing :)

Looks like I'm in for a good battle with Strop :D

Seems that it's actually a good idea to put the car into a bit of a spin at the hairpin - that's what shaved off a lot of time for me :scared:

Not done this for a few weeks ! Good to be back

T1 - 48'723

T2 - 1'29.135

Gearing 320

Edit: Second session tonight. Tried 300 gearing giving a slight improvement. T2 would have been better if not for an almighty tiptoe around the hairpin!!

T1 - 48'680

T2 - 1'28.860

Edit : Final session for today. For me 290 works much better and feels much smoother through the corners

T1 - 48'287

T2 - 1'28.249

I was having trouble feeling tired tonight so I ran a few laps in the Audi ... very nice combo Sjaak 👍 so far I'm at 47.702 / 1'27.646 but the last little chicane needs better judgement for sure as I enter it all wrong ... will grab some more laps when I have a chance :)

Nice combo, Sjaak. 👍

Looking forward to working on this one. Might try and take the car for a spin on the Suzuka endurance this weekend. :sly:
