There is a big shadow on the track, stick to the right after Blanchimont, there you will find a point where the shadow changes. It's after the gantry and before the white line if I remember right... Well, that's my braking point and it works pretty well :P

Thanks buddy, I'll look for that.

I use the first white brake marker on the left. Just before it leaves the screen in bumper cam.

Rumble strips are part of the track and provided the game didn't red-lap you and, you had at least two wheels in contact with the track/rumble at all times then it's not dirty 👍

Thanks to the admins by this very strong classical combo - I love it but its difficult not to fly out of the track at begining. Big car and big brakes also. With 140 Kms done:

40.883
1.51.966

Nice one, Bart. 👍 I was realizing myself that my original advice of completely lifting and coasting into Eau Rouge was probably safe, but not the fastest, and that (as you show) it's possible to just lift-off to 10-20% throttle with a dab of brake, and never fully come off the throttle.

I'm going to have a few more runs at this but then will be away from the PS3 for the weekend, so pretty sure I'll be passed by some fellow D2'ers. :cheers:

  • I finally can get through Eau Rogue without red lap or wrecking. Watching my replay there is time to get especially in the last chicane and all of sector 2.

Watching that video only disheartens me even more, there is NO way I could try that into that corner, even the conservative approach I'm taking is a coin flip to make it through...at best!

Uuuurgh, I have no idea where I'm losing the most time either. How do you guys push hard in this car? If I even think about going near its limits the chances of making it through a lap are ridiculously minuscule?!?

Oh yeah, nearly flipped it just after T2 on a lap too...

I feel that with my level of ability I can get another 0.5...gee it'd be nice to find it. One last session this afternoon and then I'm away for the weekend, so we'll see 👍

Wow. And I was so happy about my 201km/h through Eau Rouge :)
Thanks for the video.

I managed to flip the car in the turn right after T2. There is a manhole cover that kicks up but it's before the apex so not really in the way.

I've forgotten how to go 70+ in the first corner. Closer to 60 km/h now. :grumpy:

Guilty also. The lap wouldn't have been very good without it though.

I couldn't resist, I had another 2 hour session tonight. Not so frustrating this time, I saw a sub 39 T1 a few times. It's so nice when you fly through eau rouge, I shaved off over 2.5 seconds on this lap!

Wow this is the first time I've felt *good* about getting within 0.15 of my current splits. It helps that I was ahead at various points and gave it back at others. Now off to the data logger! :)

The data logger rocks! It showed me that slight lift in the turn right after T2 costs 0.4 :)

I have seen couple of 1'46s but never on a clean lap.
My new Eau Rouge record is 205km/h. Somehow I can never do it after half decent turn 1.
