    Congrats to GTP_Nuclearfire ,

    He will be the host for this week.:tup:

    The combo is not so easy as it looks and the choice between different N tires is a nice twist.

    Have fun.:)

    Good initiative from the mods, and very creative idea from Neil. Well done :tup:
    I am happy we don't have to do the zigzag version as suggested earlier :sick:
    This week is probably about tuning but most of all drafting, so the AI strenght setting might be crucial ... good luck to all and happy racing :)

    This is a hard one. Or you have to chose for a high AI-strenght so you you can draft alot (but more chance of hitting someone), or you chose for a low AI-strenght (less chance of bumping, less chance of drafting)
    Had some tries, 54.0?? was the best so far.

    Without testing it, I presume you'll have to be drafting a lot and run the risk of hitting other cars.

    Is it allowed to put the AI on R3 tires?

    This is interesting - so many variables to suss out.

    Just ran a few, and it's difficult to run 6 clean laps, mainly becaause of the AI.

    Fastest lap 53.598

    Yes, this is exactly what makes this a bit irratating.
    Thought it's really rewarding to get 6 clean laps together with this level of difficulty.

    I've had some great 6 lappers and occasionally the AI tends to ram me ,
    when it's passing another car or closing in the distance when I'm braking.

    Here's where I start with this event I nicknamed:

    Rollercoaster of Death (there are so many ways to FAIL at this event)
    Fastest Lap 52.946

    Now heading back to week 11 for those last tenths I might find.

    It's gonna be interesting though, and fastest lap posts won't give much indication of final race time.
    Since I posted my fasted lap on here, I've run two races faster but with slower fastest laps.

    Wouldn't that be more likely to cause AI to hit under braking?

    On the other hand it would allow them to be on the throttle earlier giving a longer toe .........mmmmmmm maybe?????

    Errr I havn't tried the combo yet though.

    Looks like a variety of choices, so coming up with best, will be a trial and error exercise, I guess.

    Good luck to all.:tup:

    Interesting round. Personally, the N2s were a nightmare round the bends. You will need to use the AI to draft, which is infuriating.

    Board update.

    VERY interested to read your AI and tune settings. I so far only got a

    55.466 (54.xxx)

    but it's clear that by drafting that could be improved significantly.
    I now have AI at 27 on N3's, with my car set at lowest weight with max DF. With final gearing at around 4.000 the car sticks in 4th all the time.

    The AI is just rubbish:tdown:

    Strange racing a Skyline against a Ford GT,F430 and the Blitz ER34,all these are faster yet with them in the right order they just string me along,;) hope to get the line upagain next session, some tweaking required to optimise the Skyline, but I am enjoying the racing ,nice 'n' close with slip everywhere!!!

    Fastest lap 52.826

    Phil your PS3 will probably overheat and break down:sly:

    Just started on this now, run my first 6 lapper, fastest lap 52.651, whole race was a mare though, dodging suicidal drivers, hopefully things will get better, aint that a line from a song:)

    I cannot see me submitting a time for this, i have a couple of saved replays, only problem is i can knock time off those BUT the AI drivers, my gawd are they on a day release, I'm sure they are all Homer Simpson clones, to get a super fast time you have to be in the mix and they are just numpties who draft you then forget to pull out:crazy:

    Think you need to set the AI quite high, you want to be in a race with, the odd Blitz, Vette(tuned and untuned), Spoons etc, your looking for the draft from these guys. What's working for me, obviously better drivers out there with better idea's, don't go ballz out for speed down the straight, think about carrying speed through the corners so as to stay close to the faster cars and utilize their superior speed down the straights
