    A technical combo this week,
    One corner entry not perfect will have effect for the next one.

    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind.We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    • Save your best lap/ghost replay

    Looks interesting. I do have a good amount of experience with this car and also did a Seasonal TT on this track not long ago so pretty familiar with the reverse layout. Getting "bob" to break in my car right now so it should be ready after the NASCAR race at Talledega. We'll see what the week brings. Good luck everyone.

    If this has anything to do with that forest queen from lord of the rings I'm definitely interested. :lol: In all seriousness I plan to give this one a shot if at all possible.

    My first splits:

    22.902
    28.389

    I'm using a tune that I found here and it's really easy to drive. It's not very quick but it's a good tune to get a feel for the track and car.

    I have absolutely no idea how to setup cars so I rely on others to do that for me. :lol: Since everyone seems to call each other by their first name around here, you can call me Andrew. :)

    Good luck guys :cheers:

    Had a run at this earlier tonight. Ah the simple pleasures of changing gear... :sly: No setup to speak of so far - stiffened the springs and shocks, ARB 7/7, camber 2.5/2.0 - Need to try and dial out the snap-oversteer when trail-braking. Some splits to kick off anyway:

    22.244
    28.165

    Love Deep Forest... even more in reverse. :)

    Edit - Fetchy isn't picking up splits. Looks like the deadline has both 2012 and 2013 showing on the leaderboard.

    First splits after about 30 min. of getting used to the track/car. Using an old tune of mine that did pretty good in a past Seasonal TT with minor adjustments for the track. I can see that I'm going to have to do alot of cleanup in sector 2. Anyway, here we go.

    Great fun, love the car and track. Been looking forward to a tuning event now the seasonals are non-tuning. Still working a decent set-up.

    T1 22.330
    T2 28.631

    Need to work on sector 2, and sector 3.
    The first sector is pretty hit or miss for me, pb on this lap though.

    Thanks mate :tup: and call me Chris. I think that's going to be my limit in sector 1 - most laps I'm a tenth down. You never know though - Ramon may turn up and smash that.

    I've settled on a setup I think, not that its gained me much time but it is more consistent. Just about to walk the bear so I'll post it up after. Probably a sector 1 video as well..?

    Nice to see you in for a run Lou - you like DFR as well eh? :sly:

    22.242
    28.130

    Maybe another tenth in sector 2 if I'm lucky. Very satisfying hammering this round here though. :tup:

    Cheers, yeah this track is one of my favourites couldn't resist this combo. Just feels as if your constantly about to crash when your on a fast lap lol.
    Great sector times by the way mate.

    Managed a better lap:

    T1 22.468
    T2 28.296

    Lost some time in the first sector but was smoother through 2 and 3.

    As stated, just have "bob" do it. I set him loose on the Indy 500 event and after 100 laps, the car is broken in. Takes about 1 1/2 hours or so. I just do it before I go to bed and let him go. I have always broken in my cars this way and seems to work the best for me.

    Or if your a bit like me, and fancy getting some XP for your Bspec and driver, as well as a few credits on the side, I just run the 22 lap Indy race from the final event from the Expert set. That way (even if you lose) you will get a chunk of xp and a few credits, then just hit ok and re-run the race.

    If your gunna be away from the PS3 for a while though, follow what the other fellas have said, and do the Indy 500 or daytona or something, and just let him run and return to the game at some point down the line. Don't forget to give it an oil change after your done mind! :tup:
