    Good to be back haha. My left foot seems to have lost some stamina after not left foot braking for a while :lol:

    From my practice so far, I don't thinking shifting early is a good idea; however, staying in a higher gear for some turns is way better.

    Interesting. Agreed in terms of staying in a higher gear.

    @8l23ub you have two typos in your current splits - & , instead of a decimal point. :)

    @JamCar0ne @_r_p_m_ @BGCaligula @GTP_Guido @Pigems - already submitted a time

    @Bass Addict @roamer2629 @8l23ub @MikeyLCR @geeTeye @SuperMegaGeek @Pigpin13 @oldguy58 - have splits on the board

    NOTICE OF CHANGE

    WE HAVE CHANGED THE REAR TIRES FOR THIS EVENT:
    Tires: Sport Soft (front) / Sport Medium (rear)

    Due to the recent update we have found that lap times are slower so we are forced to change a verifiable parameter to force everyone to re-run.

    Apologies for the inconvenience but PD likes to throw us curveballs.

    Man! What a difference this update makes. Took it for a spin. Feels like a different car :lol:. My first sector is still weak. That hasn't changed.

    Before I submit. Would this be judged as on or off in your opinion? Fighting for every tenth here. The struggle is real!

    The rear left is still perched on the asphalt and never drops into the dirt.

    EDIT: Please ignore this post. I managed to beat the time. Just leaving it up for reference.

    Interesting... I thought if the car touched grass then it would be automatically disqualified? Thrown out dozens of tracks because I've clipped grass or dirt...

    At least two wheels should be in contact with what's determined as track at all times. Touching the grass is fine.
