    I attempted to pick up the PSP to lay down my first laps, but grabbed nothing but air. Then I remembered that my son took his PSP back to his mother's house and won't return until this evening.

    I attempted to do some moderate tuning last night and actually made the performance of the cars worse. Many readjustments later, I barely managed to improve both times:

    still 0'58.xxx and 1'04.xxx

    Finally!, got my first laps with these cars.
    57.5xx and 1'3.9xx. I love these cars but the track not so much, is too short for me. Have to say I'm not really good setting the cars so improving my times is going to be a challenge.

    I've improved both times by 2/10th of a second, and I'm having trouble with camber and toe setup (I use + toe to reduce oversteer coming out of a corner).

    No improvement on the GT-4 Ltd, but I got the Nismo a little faster - 0'57.5xx.

    What is it about this track that makes me lean from side to side while I play, sometimes I catch myself even wanting to stick my tongue out of my mouth the way a slow kid does when he writes. LoL!

    Edit - Did some tuning with the GT-4 and got a 1'03.8xx!

    I've been doing that too! I actually leaned so far to my right a couple nights ago that I hit the lampshade with my head. It was at that point that I realized how ridiculous doing that was because my car won't turn any faster if I lean into it... but knowing all that, I still end up doing it!

    :dopey:


    I saw a tiny amount of improvement last night. I currently have a 0'58.0xx and a 1'04.0xx...

    I tried, but was unable to knock any time off my previous best(s). I know I can do better with the Nismo Z-Tune, but I feel pretty close to my wall with the GT4 Ltd.

    Seems like I cannot participate in these challenges for a while from now on, don't have a psp to play on at the moment and I'm most likely getting a job along side with my school, which means that I'll have only little free time and that I'd probably like to spend on something else. It's a shame since I've enjoyed this event quite a bit. I'll try to participate every now and then when circumstances allows me, though I won't have enough time to lap the top times :p .

    It was great to have you as part of the group, Spiral! Please feel free to stop on by any time and say 'hi' or run or few laps. It was an honor to race with you!

    all my files corrupted this morning as my PSP crashed while browsing GTPSP thread. I have to run quick laps just to beat today's deadline.
    Very unfortunate. I just lost my 1'03.710 and '57.820.

    :(

    Hi friends! My personal best this week was 0'57.820 and 1'03.710 but I just discovered that My files got corrupted just this morning before preparing it to be submitted. My GTsave data and all replays were corrupted together with almost 80percent of all my files. So I have to format my memstick and revert back my files as of last Friday.I did some quick laps this afternoon but failed to repeat the faster times.So unfortunate...
    :(

    See you guys on the next challenge.

    This past week was about 'seconds'. It was the second week in a row that MVR08 has competed and the second week in a row in which he has won. It also marks the second week in which Dan has finished in second place! Third place was won by pvr77 for the second time in the past two weeks... he put in yet another very strong effort to reach the podium. It was also the second week in a row in which we didn't have Spiral, Sylar, or easyasashii racing with us.

    Spiral has informed us that he'll be unable to join us for the foreseeable future - we were glad to have him and hope he'll stop by when ever he is able. As far as easyasashii and Sylar go, I'm sure they (just like Spiral) had real-life commitments that popped up. We all understand those and look forward to their return!

    Now, onto the overall standings: Dan continues to hold on to 1st place... but MVR08 has been gaining ground these past two weeks. red ice and pvr77 are now tied for 4th place with twelve points each. If it wasn't for red ice's unfortunate corrupt files (I've dealt with that myself!), he'd be tied for 3rd place.
