    Thanks Dotini, Tokyo has been annoying me since it came out and just couldn't get that balance of of speed and cornering myself.

    I ran with 1 more on the LSD acceleration which seemed to suit my style more with a beat up old dual shock!

    Oh, and my heavy handedness with the loud pedal.

    trying this set up, cant get that hp and those addons, have to raise to 91%, so doing something wrong, had to buy a 2nd one of these cuz first one had stage 3 weight reduction

    none of my gears can do the numbers you are doing either, they dont go high enough

    weird

    Much of acceleration is determined by the setup (power, weight, gearing, etc.), so if you are following that then what's left are the driving options and techniques. The traction control setting is a way of controlling wheelspin and consequently acceleration. To objectively test the best traction control setting, you can go to the test track and do back-to-back acceleration runs at various distances with different values for TC, and compare the results. Let's say you get the lowest ET with a value of "3"; then you would use 2 (3-1) on the TC when it comes to the race. A problem with TC is that it does cost power. Another, often better, way to control wheelspin is to squeeze on the throttle when coming off the turn rather than suddenly mashing it. All top players must learn to do this.

    In the Lambo races, much of the overtaking is done under braking. Brake bias settings are usually customized to suit your controller/wheel/driving style and setup, so you can play with that. It is 100% crucial to know all your braking points down to the gnat's ass, and to reliably repeat your braking to perfection on every lap.

    You have to have EXACTLY the same part/wheels/mods as he has.


    EDIT: Finally cracked Tokyo last night with Fruity's tune & some interesting driving...

    Tried Tokyo again. Still using the Gallardo with SRF turned on. Ran against the field with 3 Miuras at the front. Total time was 8:49.209 with a best lap of 1:44.873. Again, got lucky drafting on the straightaways which really helped. Passed the lead Miura before the end on lap 4. I'm usually 2-3 seconds slower for total time, so I'll have to look at the replay to figure out what the heck I did right. LOL

    Edit: Current best is now 8:48.151 with a best lap of 1:44.602. Plenty of drafting on the best lap.

    You need to adjust your top speed (via final gear) so that you're just off the limiter on the main straight on a flying lap. I had SRF & active steering on & used the AI as moving armco barriers. Really agressive driving got me to P1 by turn 5 on the last lap. I even used the long armco in the 180 deg right-hander as a guide rail once or twice... :lol:

    Finally, Finally, Finally beat Tokyo!!!!! :cheers:
    Did it with FRUITYCAKES :bowdown:with no aero and doubled LSD. I never did get the same transmission settings, even with all parts installed.
    With Top Speed 137 setting was only way to get the same gear settings that were posted.
    With Final Gear set at 3,332 I finally found right speed.
    Relearning Tokyo helped.

    I know you don't save the replays but for anyone who does, check out the leader. The AI drives like it's a Sunday afternoon trip to the corner store, even hits the barriers a few times (at least twice in some, three times in others). There we are driving like crazy fools behind it and it's just cruising. You'll have a laugh if you replay through the lead AI's eyes.

    What total times are winning this? I'm getting P2 regularly but can't manage the win. Total times of 8:53 or 8:54 with lap times as low as 1:44 several times. I'm driving a 640 Murcie that seems perfectly tuned for the course but I can't manage to gold it. Some of the times I've seen here are slower than mine so either there's something fishy (probably) or you're not supposed to drive a 640. Maybe I'll switch back to a Gallardo with a tune or smash my way to the front!

    Edit: Never mind. I finally won by 1.2 seconds. Used a Gallardo with the FC tune and managed to get the right set of AIs. What a frickin' relief to get that under my belt. Total time was 8:53.250. By the way, the car wasn't the full FC tune, and I'll put it on share if anyone wants to add me and use it. PN name is the same as here.

    I'm putting the replay up on Youtube and I'll post the link or whatever here. Also the lag videos, they are very funny. Thanks! I was in the same state a few hours later. :lol:

    Just for fun, I ran the Gallardo like a very large, expensive billiard ball. There are a few key places you can bounce it off the guard rails and get ridiculously good results. Total time was 8:43.753 with a best lap of 1:43.647, and beat the lead Miura by 8.6 seconds. Very "impure" racing, but it was a hoot! :lol:

    You know, I wondered about that. I hit the wall once and bounced away the heck ahead of the car I was trying to pass. Good find! Shades of the 'phone call trick' from a Honda seasonal from months ago. I got 1:44 a few times and thought I was doing well. :cheers:

    Yep, hence my comment above: "I even used the long armco in the 180 deg right-hander as a guide rail once or twice... :lol:

    Thanks. Now for latest ridiculous update, tried it again today and ran 8:40.783 total with a best lap of 1:43.360. Laps 2-5 were all in the 1:43.xxx range. Beat the lead Miura by 10.7 seconds, and he was faster than usual. BTW, passed him right at the end of lap 3.

    Here are my "bounce" spots: 1. At 4th turn (right hand sweeper, with wall on right side). Go full speed with wheel turned to the right, and bounce off the far wall. Don't hit the far wall again. 2. 5th turn, right before the little straightaway. Go full speed, with wheel turned all the way left, and hit the right wall at an angle. Kinda hard not to hit the right wall again, but keep the throttle pegged. 3. Series of quick, tight turns, then one slower turn right before the final slow sweeping semi-circle. Instead of slowing down for that turn before the sweeper, go full speed, wheel turned sharp left, and take a glancing shot at the right guard rail.

    Drive the rest of the track as normal. Don't touch any other cars, but get as much drafting as possible.

    Let me know if you break under 8:40.

    Hey all, Won this one when it first came out, with the Gallardo, obviously Tokyo took a "few" goes. Anyway, decided to go back and re-do it, just for "fun". I bought a new Murcielago s/v, and tricked it up a bit, the usual weight reductions and diff(s) tunes etc. To be honest, IMO, this thing is the best of all. It handles like its on rails and with the gear box settings, it flies. Beat Tokyo against the 3 Muiri's no worries. A real sweet drive. Anyone wants to borrow and go for a run Elmer_Fudd_63 cheers, Croozer

    This track got me for awhile. I found the other ones pretty easy as I finished 1st on all but the tarmac on my first try. I used the Gallardo and about 150kg of ballast to the rear. That allowed me to use the SRF and power slide through pretty much every turn. I didn't do much tuning to this car, just the basic stuff. No suspension tune at all.
