    Rev it out. I think I went to a small amount of positive BB. 1 or 2.

    :lol:

    It was a lot worse than my prior T1, and is still the worst on the board. So I did not pick up on the typo.

    On this lap, I messed up the entry to the turn 2 hairpin, so I knew the T1 was bad, and I knew why. Just sucks that I tied it to a fairly solid T2 and final sector.

    I hate that. After I settle into a combo, if I have a horrible T1, I typically restart because nailing the rest of the lap like that is heartbreaking. Nice T2 my man!

    I am gonna see Star Wars today, so this evening I'll give it another go.

    I do that later in the week, but early in the combo I like to run many consecutive laps to get in rhythm, and to get a good indication of optimal splits/lap time.

    The second piece is obviously new to GT Sport, but I like having that number as a reference point so I understand the quality of my overall lap time.

    First splits after 40laps, BB 0.

    28.455
    46.890

    Have gotten to T2 about .15 faster but this was my PB 3rd sector so far.

    Great choice on the car! :cheers:

    Still not sure about BB, set these with zero. Seems car is easier to control on brake release this way.

    Trying to figure out this 2nd Sector, there has to be way to hit the gas sooner. :lol:

    Making progress though. :)

    Improving in all sectors but stringing it together in one lap will be a tough ask...

    Of all the cars in the game, who would've thunk this one would work so well here. Well done team WRS, well done. :cheers:

    Nearly palindrome splits. :lol:

    BB -1

    I think it helps control the car rotation on brake release. Tried -2, but it was wild. For me, this is the sweet spot.

    Merry Christmas! :cheers:

    Around 35 more laps between last night and this morning to get .06 at the line, still around 3 tenths left to get between sectors 1 and 3, but got a new PB in sector 2.

    Been debating between 2nd and 3rd gear for the corkscrew, this one was with 3rd.
