    I know. Yesterday I was 33rd at .717 off leaders, now I am 33rd and .644 off leaders. This week is one of the best so far, so tight and competitive. It will real be interesting when the week is done to see what people are getting for T3.

    T3 is going to be the real decider this week, I just hope I’m hitting it well enough to keep me up the board. The trouble with it being so close is that we know there isn’t much improvement possible if the top drivers are less than half a second ahead

    Damn! I thought I was ready to submit my time until I hit a 15.460 in T1.

    I am now chasing another 2 tenths before I can quit! :banghead:

    Finishing tonight's session with this.

    Adjusted by how short the lap is, the delta from Aliens to earthlings is pretty much the same.

    Finally, after trying to smash the barriers down in front of the stewards boxes after turns1 & 2, for the last hour, a slight improvement.

    16.043
    11.099

    Incidentally, I run with Shortcut Penalty turned off . I don't "trust" it, although I've not tried to verify its accuracy.
    Is it ok to have that control off?

    Tried 10 laps with CS tires to try and smooth my driving out with this car and my steering and braking.

    Swapped back to sport hards in a new session and improved my first sector a tad. The last section is really driving me crazy and not being consistent with getting the power down.

    I am fastest in sector 1 using forward brake balance and third gear.

    So tired of the replays missing final time, tossed out 5 faster laps... Yes 5. Getting to be BS this is. Come on PD , make a functional system.


    Ok rant over. Back to chasing those faster laps with a good replay.


    Edit: while this set of splits will drop me on the LB, its .4 quicker at the line. Figured out T3 it seems.

    I may be at my wall. Just did 105 laps, got within .006 of best lap. Saw my best T1 and T2 on different laps.

    Very true mate, but being this close to them is making me feel special so I’m choosing to ignore the point :lol::lol::lol:

    Got some time for running.. getting faster at sector 1.. but sector 2 is not so good.. also lost time coming out of the hairpin.. going a little sideways.. so still time to be gained.. if I can..

    Mike,

    Sector 1 time of 10.604 might need revisiting ?

    Replay for that last lap is no good despite running a full lap and a half after it so I am reverting to my previous best lap

    15.634
    10.670

    Fortunately only a matter of a few hundredths difference at the line but frustrating anyway and hopefully I'll find some more time over the weekend

    It seems to be a bit of an issue on this track particularly. I wonder if it’s because it’s so short.

    Could be but it seems so random. I just think it's a matter of luck (bad) that kicks in every once in a while and until PD fix this it's going to be annoying for everyone :grumpy:. Ah well at least it motivates me to run some more ;)

    Made improvements over all 3 sections that will give me quite a lot of time at the line if I can ever put them together in the same lap :banghead:
