Hello guys.

Tomorrow I am racing with the Suzuki GSRX-4, the little one that has no roof. Well, PP are limited to 500 but use of Nitro is permited. Which is the best strategy? 100% Power to try getting Pole Position and Fastest Lap (1 point worth each) or using another percentage for the rest of the race and try to win it from P3-P4 on the grid?

Thanks in advance, my first, and hopefully last, time with Nitro...

Depends on the length of the race. Taking half a second off of 10 laps is going to net better results than taking 2 seconds off of two laps. In addition, the greater the power difference between normal and nitrous use, the less effective your transmission setup will be (as it has to accommodate both levels of power).

The race is set in Apricot Hill, 27 laps, so a 35-40 minutes race. Maybe using 65% power is better than 100% and a very few Nitro shots per lap?

If the race is that long, I would set it up for the lowest amount possible. You may want to save it for strategic passing and simply tape the button down for your qualifying lap.

If your going to use it I would set it pretty low & just use it for a bit as you enter the main straight till it runs out.
Possible other use is to help achieve slipstreaming.
