    I managed to beat his initial lap time but now it’s way to much!

    Has anyone on here beat him? I've managed a low 1:44 (can't remember the precise time) so he's got me beat by a couple of hundredths at the moment, he's pretty damn fast.

    Not a massive fan of the indycars in stock form either but i reckon i've got another second in me if i can just put a full lap together. How the aliens at the top of the board are running low 1:41's is beyond me!!!

    I've beaten his time with a 1:43.6 this tornra is going to be a very rare car to start with.

    I put up a 47 with a few laps on the controller, I know a 44 won't be too hard but mid 43's, I will have to see.

    Going to give this a bash now, only problem is I can't find his time on the leaderboard.

    Are all the best times using a steering wheel and pedals? I was hoping Forza would be giving a historical indycar as a prize.

    His gamer tag is JNRACERTPX2, bounty ends tomorrow I believe.

    Most, if not all, of the top guys use a controller

    Best I can muster is a 1:45.xxx time. To all of you that managed to beat him, you deserve a beer on the house. :sly:

    Keep going. :)
    Try chasing one of the top 10 times, just getting the first 3-4 corners closer to their speed should drop another 2 seconds.

    Does using traction really help that much? I ran a 1:49.xxx sans traction, only to discover most times are using traction.

    Yeah, for this one it does seem to help quite a bit. Not using the clutch seems to help a little as well

    I will have 1 more go at it tonight. So frustrating to see the ghost car take off on turn 2 leaving me in the dust no matter what I do. Lol

    If anyone else is intending to take this on, you have until tomorrow, 7PM Pacific. The final time to beat is 1:43.807.

    Also, everyone who sets a time will get a 2016 Camaro S(uper)S(port) as a participation prize, which is a car that can only be obtained through special events like the Torana FE top prize.

    He's still 2.2 seconds off the pace of his actual qualifying lap from this summer's race (1:41.660)

    I had a go with the wheel, dropped to 1:45.140, no TCS.
    I can see the time to hit low 43's, maybe a high 42, but I really don't feel like chasing time the way that I used to. I might give it another wheel shot tonight.
