    It's exactly how I expected, a time sink that I'm likely to enjoy way too much. :D:tup:

    Tried ASM for the first time, for a lap; never again. Then put in one of those sessions where you only nail two of the three sectors. You know the ones, where you make a mistake on one lap, then make the exact same mistake the next. Then on the third lap you get that corner perfectly, only to mess up the next. The lap after that you get them both wrong ... :banghead:

    Finally beat my original lap.

    Challenge accepted :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Edit: just out of interest does anyone else’s ghost cars have steering wheels sticking out of the right hand side near the rear wheel? I’m finding it very distracting every time I see it :confused:

    That's an instant DQ, we do not allow two drivers in our TT's and unles you can come up with a legitimate reason for having two steering wheels.......:lol::p

    Yeah, it's weird:confused: looks like a training wheel on the right hand turns. I gave up training wheels a long time ago:irked:

    I’m presuming that it’s the 2nd steering wheel that keeps randomly spinning the car when I’m not expecting it :lol::lol::lol:

    Thanks

    Click on the replay menu at the top of the menu screen next to race settings & you will see options to save replay, save best lap replay or load ghost. Loading the ghost of your fastest lap is very handy for judging how well you are doing when you come back to the game another time. Hope that makes sense?

    On a separate note I have realised the stewards for this track are big fans of mine as they keep waving flags at me when I pass them :lol::lol::lol:

    Retrospective look to past week: give us some Crampons, which were not needed last week! :p :D they would be really handy here. ^^

    Looking at how close the leaderboard is this week I’m not expecting to gain much more, though there a few places where a bit more bravery might just gain me a little bit more

    Something like these?

    For any of you guys struggling with the grip, it's mostly a matter of making sure you don't have the wheel turned while trying to accelerate. Those rear tires only have so much grip, and they can either turn or accelerate, but not both at once. ;)

    Not giving up yet mate, just had another 10 laps & beat my overall time but with slower splits. My opt says there’s another half a second there if I can string it together!

    Great, looking forward to the competition again.

    I ran 15 laps before I had to be an Adult and go to work, I was starting to knock on the door of a faster lap, my S1 & S2 splits were faster numerous times, but I am having trouble with the third Sector, keep over accelerating.......but I am only .2 off my opt right now.

    Hi - We don't share our full lap times here in the thread, I removed it from your post.

    We post the sector times in here, not the split times. So the T2 time would be the time of only the second sector, from the live timing screen within the replay. You will need to pause the replay and enter that screen after your car passes the T2 timing line.

    So your 22.376 should be an 11.130 sector 2 in the live timing screen.

    An 11.246 would be an amazing Sector 1 time, consider everyone else is 15.4xx or higher.

    Ahhhhh,a steeringwheel.
    I noticed something sticking out when chasing my ghost.

    Weird.

    After a 250 mile stint today I’m well up on my previous best lap with still potentially another half a second to take off.
    Finally removed the weak ABS today too which was the only assist I’ve used in previous weeks.

    Did shutting the ABS off help? It is the only assist I have on but could use every tip I can get this week, to beat you. :)

    The purists will tell you it adds to the immersion and the experience by not using it, I say use it. It's there for a reason and does nothing to impede your lap times. I always have ABS set to default that's the only aid I use

    It takes a few laps to get used to it but I’ve been faster since I took it off. Can’t say 100% that it’s because of that or just that I’ve found the right lines & braking points.

    Not that I want to help you beat me or that you need any help beating me :lol::lol::lol:
