    Should be interesting! In the past, don't we normally have to submit all 3 of our lap times plus the final time? Not happening this time? I'll get on to a tune ASAP.:)

    Edit: This time is not to go on the leaderboard, since it wasn't part of a 3-lapper, but I've done a 1'01.404 while tuning.:)

    Edit 2: Done an official 3 lapper now, all laps clean, here's my best one:

    Fastest Lap: 1'01.160
    :D


    Edit 3: Faster again :dopey:

    Fastest Lap: 1'00.976

    I didn't think I'd drop below 1'01 :D, loving the combo this week already, this car's a hoot on N3s.:)

    Best lap: 1'02.213 (Using TLD Tune)
    This car is hard to handle even if it's not a beast. You have to be very careful. It handles way better with the TLD tune (Thanks Paulie :tup:) It should be interesting this week.

    Thanks for the compliment and using my tune.:)

    Please do :), in my opinion and from the feedback given by an early user of the tune, it's a good one that really transforms the car.:dopey:

    Short and sweet this week. The Lotus is a twitchy little beast, and I'll have fun trying to tame it on Suzuka East (thank god it's not the full Suzuka :scared:).

    Be back with splits + review for Paulie's tune later.

    P.S. This week we are submitting to Vaxen again? Or is it a typo sjaak?

    EDIT: Just ran some laps, with a fastest of 1.02.492. The car is surprisingly manageable, but then again, I'm using a TLD tune, so it's to be expected ;) Note to Paulie: can you make the car have a tad more lift-off oversteer? I'm struggling to get the nose turned in the first & last corner. And I'm using 3rd gear for the whole lap (except at the frontstraight obviously), is this correct? Overall a very stable tune though, just not as chuckable as I'd expect (lower the weight perharps?) . I'd give it a 8.5/10 :tup:.

    I thought this is in time trial? Why is everyone talking about a tune?

    It's one of the online time trials, with set PP, your choice of cars, and the ability to tune.

    Well, I'll give the opposite review here. If anything still a little to tail-happy for me, so I changed the brakes back to 5/5, and increased camber on the rear a bit, and quickened the final drive about .100, not sure of exact numbers.
    Very nice tune Paulie.:tup:

    Not sure what camera I'll use to submit this week, I ran a 1:02.217 with bumper cam, my fast cam, but have a hard time keeping clean for 3 laps, so using the in-car cam, which is almost impossible for me to wreck using, I managed a:
    1:02.834 in a set of 3.
    Gotten down in 1:02.6's several times, not not for my 3-lapper yet.

    Cool, thanks for clarifying :tup:.

    Hmm, it might be my driving style then. I'll do the opposite of what you've done and see if I can make it oversteer more on entry.

    I got the same problem too! Usually bumper cam is fastest for me, but in this car the bumper cam is a bit too low. I can't see the corners properly and keep missing braking points and apexes :lol:. I switched to roof cam and it's much better now.

    I also have to switch my accel/brake from the analog sticks to the triggers so I can 'left-foot brake' and keep a smooth driving line. Works wonders in this car...

    Really enjoying this one! 1:01.463 as part of a three lapper, though I have gone quicker over a single lap, so its a case of being consistent now!

    Really nice combo this week, Sjaak. :tup:

    I made my own tune yesterday and ran for a bit. My best lap as part of a 3 lap was a 1:01.898. so I've put that on the board.

    My fastest lap is a 1:01.6. Need to find some consistency. :dopey:

    Anyhow, I've initiated the leaderboard for this week, catch you all later. :cheers:

    This is great fun :tup: Sjaakie :D

    Muckin about with settings and such but starting to get something going. I'm liking stiff springs and shocks all around with some +rear toe. I have the final real low and using 2nd atm.

    1'02.251 in race(pretty consistant there) a 1'01.9 fluke hottie ;)

    My first best single lap:

    1'02.315

    Driving a really slow car quite easily adds to the frustration of being a slow driver :D
    I'm using the TLD tune with tiny changes - fiddling with the rear toe

    I've liked bringing the TLD tune's final drive down to about 4.400, get better use of 2nd this way, though it hurts a bit through the esses.

    Thanks to everyone using my tune.:) I'll send you a PM for suggestions Legend, although I thought it was already pretty taily on lift-off moments.:sly:

    Got it down some, happy with that.:)
    1:02.238 - Not quite as consistent as I'd like, but I guess that's what the next 6 days are for.:sly:
    I have to say, I'm considering making it a smidgen more tail-happy myself, though it sounds dangerous.:scared: :idea: :nervous: :scared:

    Today I was driving like crud through the last corner, I couldn't get it right.:ouch: On the one lap I did get it right it was only a 1'01.0, I then had numerous laps that I was 0.2sec up on that lap, only to go 0.3sec slower through the final turn.:dunce: Hopefully I'll have that pace again on Thursday.

    I decided on a front toe change to -0.18 as well.:tup:

    Mega Thanks to Paulie for the spring rate tips :tup:. I changed it to 2/7 and instantly I'm 0.02 seconds quicker. Then I tinkered with the camber and brakes and went super aggressive on my out lap. The result? 1.02.252 :D:D. The car is now very chuckable on entry, but also much more stable on corner exit, so I can put the power down more confidently (especially in the last turn). Awesome feeling....

    Final settings look like this:
    Spring 2/7
    Camber 1.1/1.6
    Brake 5/8

    Best lap in 3 lap run: 1:01.375

    A slight improvement in time, and a big improvement in my consistency :D I've still gone faster on a single lap though, and I can see where I have lost time on my 3 lap run, so I'm hoping for more!

    Bah, can't sign on to PSN. Here's hoping it's nothing more than a minor "tonight" issue. Can connect fine to net, etc, on it.

    Reset the connection settings and it let me, quite slow to sign in, though.
