    Long way to go, especially at the first corner. Just when I think I've got it right, I promptly pinball off the next three corners.

    This is my first time ever trying london in reverse...not going all that great in my first 30min stint...the barriers keep attracting my little orange st like a moth to a flame :(

    Haven't seen anything below 45.xxx, so not even bothering posting for now

    Watch this space, some improvement to come

    Any tips will be appreciated :)

    Hey racingfreak, the best and obvious tip is to watch the top 10 arcade replays for this combo. The one thing I try and concentrate on at this track is my braking points. Try and establish markers where you drop anchors and then play around with braking earlier or later to see where you can find time.

    For example, on the approach to the last corner there is a manhole in the middle of the track...
    Hope that helps.

    T1: 26.711
    T2: 43.222

    sector 1 is a little too involved for me right now but I can see a few tenths.

    Dan.

    After a long, hard night of trying. Just as I was going to head to bed. This comes out of nowhere. .5 better than my previous best time.
    So happy! :D

    Edit: New splits on 2nd page.

    15 Lap Trial out here in the ST, phew. Only had 2 "good" laps (clean), 13 laps of pinballing. Turned my TCS off, did 6 laps without that aid and pulled a better run although barely to what I see in this thread....

    T1: 0'27.470
    T2: 0'44.389

    Manual with No Aids. Hmm. My replay showed some harsh shifts, although they looked right. Just something keeping me off right after the tight corners heading to the final turn.

    It’s not the man-in-hole you have to watch out for, It’s the freaking big concrete wall on the right :lol:
