    Moved my rig seat up a bit racing more NASCAR style with the wheel a bit closer than I normally would. Improved some...

    Question for the WRS stewards, @EDK

    I'm wondering how your going to monitor everyone keeping there car completely stock other than BB? Since any of us could easily go in and like turn down acceleration ect.

    First splits. Really tricky to get everything right in this car! No changes to brake balance yet and no TCS.

    And now for something completely different.... first time I've been able to drive a faster lap with traction control on. I can see me driving 300 laps of miyabi before the week is out.

    So far I'm having great fun with the challenge. :D
    But it's really amazing how many different places you can crash in short circuit like this. :scared: And equally amazing how many times you can crash in the exact same spot lap after lap. :lol:

    As you get older you feel the cold more, plus it's damn drafty with the windows wound down to improve the aerodynamics

    What's an 8 track........:lol:

    Kidding I actually had an 8 track player in my first car. :D

    Can't wait to give this combo a whirl, it sounds like it will be a blast, and quick laps so that every time I crash into a wall I don't have to wait 2 minutes to try again. :banghead:

    We are not.

    But if someone seems to have achieved the impossible, they can meet us in an online lobby with tuning prohibited and show us how they did it.

    We're playing with the hand we were dealt, and you guys are going to have to trust your fellow competitors.

    I can still see a lot of time in this as I feel I’m being too timid with the throttle at times. (Been bitten too many times by this beast when using a heavy right foot). Me & this car definitely are having some trust issues! :irked:

    One thing I have learnt is that pirouetting down the hill to the first chicane doesn’t equal a fast time, but it does make you very dizzy :boggled:

    Ridiculously difficult combo for the lower tier players ... :)
    One for the suggestion box: a following week with tuning allowed.

    Just be glad that I left it on SH tires, and did not move to the CS I tested.

    I feel these non tuning combos can help level the playing field. Especially on the hard to grip combos, you just need one good lap, and everyone gets lucky sometimes. :)

    That would have been fun.....you could have given bonus points for best drifts. :lol:

    Does it count as a drift if you do a 720 degree spin without leaving the track?

    I often find the ridiculously difficult combos are the ones I learn the most in :dopey:

    Was thinking of sitting this week out due to very limited time but seeing the combo, I just can’t resist!! :cheers:
