    Unless it's bugged like the N300 Lancer is (or at least was) then it's always faster to have it on I've found. For those that don't know the Lancer had a bug where it would gain straight line speed by switching the ABS off making it 2 seconds faster at Dragon Trail, not sure if it's still there.

    Good grief, I'm having to tip-toe round more than when my mother-in-law comes to visit :scared:

    I have to get up every 5 minutes to stab myself in the eye as it's much less painful that watching myself doing 360's, 720's and even a 1080!

    This thing is more addictive than a tube of
    Pringles!! Not much in the splits but worth a chunk of time at the line

    Had a quick break, did some driving missions and gave it another go before heading over to bed. Almost broke to the next second, so I guess that's my goal to wrap this week up.

    ... and I still think this hunk of metal belongs to the scrapyard ... :D

    There's a lot of underlying metal, but the body is made out of fiberglass.

    All I want for Christmas is Sports Soft tires :D

    That was my 3rd lap, went to p00p subsequently thereafter. I can't count the number of times I'm sideways as I cross T2 :lol:

    I need to figure out where I'm losing time in the first sector.

    Are you using 3rd or staying in 4th? Don't know about the other guys but I stayed in 4th.

    Ran a quick 10 lap session and I improved a bit more at the line. Still some time to be found though.

    For this lap I stayed in 4th but I've been experimenting with 3rd a little bit. My best sector 1 is with 3rd but I believe it negatively effects sector 2 because of the gear change.

    I found it faster to drop into 3rd at corner 1, no brake just slam it into 3rd & bounce it off the red line before feathering the throttle to get around to the apex before feeding back to full throttle. Not saying that’s the right way to do it but it’s working for me :tup:

    Only sideways? It’s usually backwards for me:lol:

    Ahhhhh that makes sense now. I've been entering into turn 1 in 4th barely dab the brakes stay right but not too tight and shift down to 3rd and shift back up to 4th just as I end sector 1. That makes complete sense how your getting into the 25s now for T2. I'll have to give that a shot.

    Not too good, but the best I can do with controller. I should have never sold my G29 until the new wheel arrived. Hopefully tomorrow.

    I'm just full of bonehead moves this week...:dunce: :banghead:

    Put in another session, and after about 30 laps (TCS 2) have got my time down more than I thought possible. Just not in the first two sectors....
