    I finally managed to complete a few laps and since I was aiming for a 2:30ish time I actually got it.

    2:30.644
    Stock setup PS4 t500

    I'm gonna have a go with the setup that was suggested by @carracerptp and see if I can better my time.

    :bowdown: Very nice driving. One thing that scares me about that car is how I sometimes forget I'm on a right-wheel driving car. :lol: I'm watching your video on pins & needles like, "oooooh!! Don't hit....ooooh he's gonna clip the rail!!!" but you never did. You held that line very nicely.

    Something I never thought of until just now. This circuit must be very boring for people with controllers. No ffb while ripping around Sopraelevata (North & South). I've taken some very forceful hits from hitting a couple of bumps at just the right (wrong?!) angle. Scares the crap out of you...

    Just realized this track is more about oval racing techniques than trying to hit every apex :lol:

    I'm such a bad driver. I did a total of 9 laps and only on one lap did I not crash.

    First attempt:

    Plenty of time, I feel pretty bad out of second lesmos and not really consistent at braking for parabolica.

    The banking is most fun!

    Edit: I grabbed the tune so kindly posted by @carracerptp

    [​IMG]

    The gearing feels better, also felt I got a better drive out of lesmos 2 and parabolica. Parabolica is "the" corner on this track, the bankings and run down to turn 1 is flat, you carry so much speed.

    It's a pretty frustrating combo, as there's 3 braking zones in a 150 seconds of driving, if you mess one up...:D

    Nice. :tup:

    Also, it seems that you overlooked @Sureboss's edit in his latest post, with the updated 2:29.xxx time.

    I'll kick things off with my usual 10-lap try at it, from last night.

    Video here.

    As you can see, there's plenty of room for improvements - even for me - especially in the first half of the track.

    Gave it about 20 laps tonight. It's still Feb in my timezone! :D

    Running with the engine turned up to 108%, no damage, tire wear on, and a few clicks to the left on Final Drive.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about tweaking the engine limiter. Turns out the tune I downloaded and used for my time set it to 101%. Now I'm tempted to see what can be done with it at max... though not sure if I need that much stress in my life right now :lol:

    I had a bit of free time to give it a go.
    Great little combo, the car is very rewarding to drive fast around Magione.

    Too bad I had to stop on the fourth lap after a little accident, the poor thing couldn't handle my horrible driving :D :

    I will try to do the next combos, it's great fun. :tup:
