    How many adult beverages were consumed coming up with this combo? :lol::cheers::lol:

    Took me 22 laps to run a clean lap.:banghead::censored:

    But I finally did and ran this to get on board. Full second off optimal but lots of time to improve.

    I thought you’d love this one @Never2fast1 considering how tail happy the car is!
    Now I’ve got used to it this is my favourite combos few weeks!

    Still loads of time to make up luckily as the replay cuts off just after the lap time shows. :irked:

    Gave this one a quick go ... god I hated having to detune the car I had just right for the GT League endurance race. This car corners like a broken speed boat.

    38.676
    23.122
    51.603

    Soooooooo much time to be found.

    Bought this car early on in the game as I thought it would be a hoot. Bloody hated it, lol. Sold it so looks like I'll be buying it again and seeing how I get on this time.

    I love that part, and I like the combo, my issues are that this things steering feels sloppy and braking is a real chore. :scared:

    Dont worry I plan on beating you again this week. :lol::cheers:

    Roamer that personality! Haha love that the gt3 has been captured like this. Can only imagine IRL...

    First 10 laps to get on the board, a second from optimum but more than that to clean up!

    38.355
    23.132
    52.933

    Found a new favourite to steer with the right foot!

    Are Mike, Andy and Adam not competing this week?:lol::lol: Otherwise let's be realistic, we will be battling for the 4th best Draggin Weights driver. :lol:

    I really need to improve my S3 time, I know why it was bad on my best lap last night, I spun out on the hairpin, but kept it on track and still ended with fastest lap for session, so I should gain some more time tonight. Looking forward to our weekly battle as always. :cheers:

    You are allowed to go away? Who will keep an eye on us to make sure we stay well behaved? :lol::lol:

    Have fun, your missing a very fun, but super frustrating combo.

    Hmmm think my accelerator pedal is on its way out, putting my foot down and I’m noticing the revs are spluttering and it’s kinda buggin me out :indiff: I’m using g27 pedals with a g29 wheel but never experienced this before,maybe they need a clean.
    But If you guys have had the same problem with the g27 pedals could you give me some advice on what to do, cheers :tup:

    Don't know what spluttering means, but if the pedal input is flickering in-game, then the potentiometer just needs cleaning. A guide here youtube.com/watch?v=I96fkD36MKY. I did it myself a week ago with my brake pedal (quite dirty!) and for my gas pedal some months ago - you're welcome to PM if you have any questions.

    Had time for 25 plus laps just now and improved over a second.

    Playing with BB and have settled on +2 and braking early and trail braking as smooth as possible to get the front end pointed where I want it. This thing is a beast of a car and demands smooth driving for sure.

    New splits, slower first sector so giving up some time with this fast lap there.

    Shaved 0.8 off with another 20 laps, down to yesterday's optimum, but optimum now another second in front of me. I know I can get a better lap, time for bed now though!

    Well nailed 3 of the 4 sectors on one lap tonight. I lost about .8 in S4. Improved 1.2 at line.

    I was actually kinda dreading this one since I had a lot of trouble with the Porsche Cup on Suzuka (the car combined with how tricky the track was made me hate it), but after about a daily workout's worth of laps I'd like to believe I got better at handling this track, especially with the GT3 RS.

    Dean I won't go into electronic jargon.

    First port of call is potentiometer , small can of compressed air and a spray can of switch cleaner(good quality) a multimeter if you have one would be very useful.

    Power off, multimeter set to resistance +lead centre pin -lead to earth.
    Operate pedal slow and smooth while watching meter, you should see a nice smooth reading from max to min. Do this a few times to get a sense of how well it's working.

    It may be a bit erratic denoting the track or wiper is dirty.

    Use a small shot of Compressed air into the opening then operate pedal again each time watching meter.

    If pot is found a little Un smooth now use switch cleaner, small spray into pot working pedal at same time, this will work the cleaner between the track and wiper, the spray will evaporate, repeat above.

    Don't use wd40 it's not a switch cleaner and doesn't evaporate like cleaner.

    I hope this is your spluttering problem (mine is just old age) and not a component breaking down on the pcb.

    Let me know how you get on via pm so as not to block up this thread.
