    CLASS #13

    Vehicle: Dodge Challenger R/T Race Car '70

    Venue: international A, dream car Championship, race 1

    Objective:
    The whole focus of the SkeagRacing school is to teach “clean racing first” and that means not hitting or trading paint with other race cars. The reason for this is that in the real life of road racing any contact with another race car can turn into a “life or death situation”!! The fast lap and total time is not as important as racing clean

    Tunes/Assists: as per game

    PLEASE SEND YOUR REPLAYS TO SKEAGRACING DISPLAYING ALL INSTRUMENTS AND IN REPLAY VIEW.

    ---------------------

    THE KNOCKOUTS!

    MISSION #4

    SEMI FINAL

    These races will be raced over 3 rounds,
    QUALIFYING, SEMI FINAL and GRAND FINAL.
    Depending on how many players enter in the qualifying round will determine the KNOCK OUT process.
    If there are only 2 players then both players will race in all 3 rounds in a best at of 3 competition.

    If there is only 3 players the process we be like this,
    Number 1 qualifier will go straight to the grand final,
    Number 2 and 3 will race head to head in the semi final and the winner will go into the grand final.

    If there are 4 players,
    In the semi final number 1 will race number 4 and number 2 will race number 3, winners will race in the grand final.

    If there is more than 4 players then only the top 4 will proceed into the semi finals.
    WE WILL BE SPLIT INTO OUR 2 DIVISIONS

    Objective: fastest time

    Vehicle: as per game

    Venue: International B, mission race #1

    Tunes/Assists: as per game

    DIV 1

    Quick question, BB adjustments allowed? Bit hard using BB of 5 and 5 with ABS off and using the [] button.

    You can adjust what ever the game allows.

    Edit: @RMan72 I use [] to, what do you find that is wrong if BB is on 5 and 5.

    With ABS off the brakes lock easily I dropped the setting to 2 and 3 but found it still locked at the end of braking in the rear so flipped it and lowered to 2 and 1.

    Good to know, I always have my ABS on 1, do you find 0 better and what is better.

    For me having ABS off changes the handling of the car makes it more 'alive' on corner entry.
    Which is better depends on what you want. Quick times from the off, using racing brakes or using most set ups on GTPlanet then ABS on 1 is the way to go.
    If you want a slightly different handling car and want to be a little more involved in the braking process then ABS off.
    Give the C1 and 300SL tune from Elegance Automotive Guild a go. Driving them was my first experience using ABS off.

    No-tune update

    @RMan72 I tried ABS 0, my first lap i was like :scared:. Played with the BB, 1/2 was best for me. I did a better time with it.:tup: I think this is the best I can do.

    What's your thoughts on this car?
    I found it a lot better than I expected, being a TVR I thought it was going to all over the place.

    I found it quite tame for a TVR, running stock cars is always fun.

    You like running with ABS 0? You see any difference in handling?

    I like driving stock cars to.

    I didn't mind no ABS, still need more practice I think. I found out very quickly that it locks up if you spend to long on the brakes, i needed to brake a bit sooner than normal, also I found that if you get it right I slides nicely into the corner and you don't lose any momentum. It was a lot easier then I thought it was going to be, once I got the setting right. I think I would struggle on the higher powered cars?

    ABS off makes the car really come alive - though I have to add that running ABS off on cars that technically are produced with ABS is kind of modifying the car.
    How I handle ABS off is to 'pump' the brake pedal. You can't 'stand on the brakes' like one can do with full ABS functioning - a real car 'judders' when you stomp on ABS brakes.
    So what I do, when I have ABS off (usually I'm running at TCS1/ABS 1) is to pump the brakes in a way imitating the ABS - manually.
    ABS off does make the car a whole different animal - quite a thrill to drive - and unless one is really trying to clip milliseconds of a TT ABS off does make a race very exciting.

    On occasion, though, one may have to change their pants after an ABS off race - if you're driving the Cizeta for instance. :D

    Everything seems good but not enought as gladiator prove ......
    My best time was 0.4 lower than yours ,usualy am in 1.2 low and hights , the last corner is the key here, how not loose speed and hit the gas without sliding.
    From what i see you can have more top speed in finish line .
    Usualy am fast when i have to use the kerb at the left ,

    About my record I don't have replay.

    I lapped mid 1:00.xxx and a good first lap is mandatory, something around 1:01.5xx.
    Tsukuba is a very technical circuit for which pad and wheel driving are completely different.
    I performed several TTs on this circuit and a good experience is fundamental to drive fast harpins and large turns as the final one.
    Driving by pad a mid-powered FR car as TVR I would recommend as follows:
    - hairpins: min distance trackline with "cusp" shaping
    - first turn: not to close trackline trying to accelerate as soon as possible.
    - last turn: there are several way to be fast but with pad i prefer to brake quite late, partitioning until the middle then go go go crossing the fingers
    - right turn before Dunlop bridge: key turn in which brake early is the better approach.

    More in general an unbalanced brake setting (e.g. 7/4) for FR car would help a lot but is out of this challenge requirement.

    Hope this helps in someway.

    Ciao

    PS: for racetime under 5min should be necessary to lap under 1min...

    Thanks for the tips mate.
    It's such a honor racing with you and the AI HUB gang. @ERAZER helped me a lot with tuning and @Vic Reign93 helped me a lot with driving tips to, when we raced online together out the "car of the week" thread. He was the master of these style events. :cheers:

    The only car give me hard time was the 440 cuda i think ,

    And to be honest it wasn' t like wash machine races , some of them need at least paint job after this :lol:
