    I took a sledgehammer to my transmission and got a T1 of 22.035, then i proceeded to crash a lot. :irked:

    Don’t look at your splits or your ghost chasing you, it will only mess you up. Easy to say, hard to do...

    Or what I do is turn off the ghost for the majority of the lap, turn it on again when you're on the straight, look back for a split second and then turn it back off again. It's something that works for me, but it might not for everyone else

    I use the indicator numbered 12 in this screen grab. It's much more reliable than the ghost and far less intrusive. Blue you are faster/red you are slower. It's especially useful because it compares your actual speed on that part of the track to your fastest lap so you always know how you are doing

    Not getting as much time as hoped on this and when I do far too many red laps.............

    That said some improvement as now running basically @shoenboggie 's tune and @Bellin 's gearing. The tuning has made a difference time wise and stability wise but its still a heavy car and is sensitive to rumble strips/elevation changes etc. Lets just say the car and track are by no means a 'match made in heaven'...............

    Still looking for further improvement over the weekend but will have limited time again.

    Thanks to everyone who suggested ways to limit my driving distractions! However, almost all of my crashes are not related to looking away from what's ahead of me. I've reached a point in this combo where my lap time is stagnant, so the only way to improve my time is to push the limits of this course. If I can string together an aggressive lap, I think I can improve my overall time by two seconds, but I haven't driven a clean lap since my last posted splits. The new tranny I am riding is much faster on almost every corner of the track, but I have not yet mastered the new shift points and cornering strategies. Hopefully soon I will be able to balance aggression and finesse, but I won't count on this...

    Don't forget the On Line Race today folks, sign up as we are are doing a Two for One deal... Crash once and we give you another free.

    C'mon it's the deal of the century!

    Seriously though it's a great track to race on and the car is actually not that bad in race mode.. See you there

    hooray made the time I thought I could do with this combo,

    Hair raising moment at the top, quick intake of breath, sign of the cross and a word with the gods of forgiveness, I managed to hold it. My prays must have been answered as the replay goes on past the finish line.

    Came about from hitting the left curb to hard just before .

    Using a mix between the posted tunes and my own small adjustments. Still drives like a boat with a loose steering wheel.

    Edit: whops, I was on sport softs. I'll run another session with mediums. This will be going uphill.

    On sport mediums now.

    22.517
    52.353
    37.308

    Doubt I'd be competitive in this car. Tune setup seems to have a big influence on this car, and I'm clueless on how to fix the handling.

    Also, too bad we can't use the walls, as they are much better at stabilizing the car than the suspension system!

    Lost a little in S1 & S4, gained a little in S2 and a lot in S3 as was more 'brave' so up at the line.

    Probably all the time I'll have for the weekend as out and about on Sunday.

    Still far too many red laps breaking up any rhythm...........

    Went about a second quicker but forgot to note down my splits. Looked like a poor lap when I was looking back at it anyway.

    Went wide at the end of the Conrod and just about kept it within limits (I hope)

    I’m back! For these 10 laps and that is probably it for a couple weeks!

    Mix of @shoenboggie and @Bellin tune and a BB of -2.

    22.345
    52.881
    37.515

    About .5 from my optimal lap time, but pretty happy with it.

    Found 2s on last night's time:

    22.369
    52.925
    37.393

    That'll be me done with this one, there is more time to find but I don't think I'll be able to get enough laps in to beat it

    Here's my setup if anyone's curious, doubt it's that good but it's what worked for me

    You might want to crank your LSD Accel number way down as that isn't helping you at all where it is....go as low as 10 :tup:

    I've hit a barrier with these times.. put this lap in on Tues.. and 250 laps later.. I still haven't gone faster.. even though I had faster sector one's.. so in theory I should be able to go around .3xx faster.. may give it another.. if I find time..
