My newest best time is with a RWD widebody Murcielago, I love making homebrew Superleggeras!
You mean the Eau Rouge (The Uphill S)? You absolutely need to cut it through as it can save you 1 second per lap at least. What works for me is slowing down to stabilize my entry, and then aim for the house (?) on the hillside, and then exit where the curb on the left side ends.I've experimented with a few cars already, nothing really jumps out at this point. Not very impressed with some of the Ferrari's yet. I'm saving the better cars for last. One thing about Spa, it has plenty of "hiding places" to leave time out on the course! The first turn, The Uphill S, and the devilish chicane at the end, are just a few. I find 10 laps is just not enough when testing the cars, because there is always spot or two where I messed up. But I'm confident in getting a sub 2:30 time down.
and the devilish chicane at the end
Yeah I saw that. I just finished a race with Drivatars, ( I pretty much race our events with 23 other drivers, and think it's a waste to do 10 laps and not get much credits), on the 9th lap I was ahead of my 2:30 pace coming down the back stretch, and a Centenario was in front of me, ( about to lap him), I had no choice but to come in behind him heading into the chicane, (dirtying my lap), then tapped him through the chicane, (dirtying the next lap). It slowed my time to a 2:31, but on the 10th and final lap I came in at what appeared to be a 2:28.895 dirty.2:27.036 with the GTO with a tune that is pure mechanical grip, brakes and speed!

A grip tune by the infamous Raceboy77 sure helped, also early braking before the most tight turns (the stadium, the hotel, for example) helps kill the understeer and attack the straights with more speed (traction control coming out is a must)."How the heck did he do that?"
I don't even remember what my current time is, but I know I'm nowhere near Fastbud.
A touch of the handbrake helps. Just as you are getting around and on the straightaway, and slowed, touch the handbrake and you'll be aligned with the straight, and gun it!The only corner on this entire track that I dislike is the hairpin just before the longest straight. I just cannot get around the blasted thing in these cars, and it's costing me so much time
