    Paddy :banghead: I would need a replay or instructions, I cant beat 48.2 with no aids :boggled:
    I might beat you on the ring tho, I had more than 3 seconds on my 36. 8time but messed up.. I was driving Stratos on CS and some other cars so BB had too much grip after that :lol:

    OK, I've had a good study of Tinkerbell's video. Without sounding too "sour grapey", he's not doing a lot that I'm not doing, and some of it a lot messier! I just cant see any obvious places where the time is coming from. AND I NEED 20 SECONDS!!!!! So the only thing I can think of is this weird "130 mile" improvement in handling that kicks in.

    1. Does this really happen?
    2. What exactly happens?
    3. Does it all happen at 130 miles or does it build up beyond that?
    4. Why is my odometer stuck at 15 miles and not increasing no matter how many times I do the damned TT on the ring?
    5. I've crashed a few times, could my 512 be bent and require body rigidity?
    6. Is that allowed?

    4. This is a feature of the Arcade Mode. The car is not saved at ALL before you open the settings.
    6. Restoring rigidity is fine, RAISING it makes it not stock in my opinion.

    I started the challenge with times of 1:52 - 1:53 as you can see on the ranking board and thought what the :censored: how am I so slow? :banghead: So I started questioning myself, have I lost touch? Have I lost my mojo?
    Then I looked at the driving aids and noticed that ASM was on :banghead:. I turned it off and I was it the mix straight away :).

    After that I was feeling pretty good about myself so I decided to take on FERRARI'S NUBURGRING CHALLENGE.
    After about 10 restarts I turned off the ps3 and cried in the corner.:grumpy:

    This corner is becoming quite crowded. Find your own corner! (Sob, sob, whimper).

    Where you think that your doing the same as davor your not he's very skilled at the ring and especially twichy cars is his specialty his driving May look realaxed and smooth there's still a lot happening that the eye can't see abveusly the only thing I can say is don't hunt gold hunt your ghost lap bye lap don't annoyed or frustrated it's not called the green hell for nothing and the farrari 512 is more like a rodeo horse than a pet so takes a lot of laps just to understand each corner when driven at different speeds:crazy:

    "Where you think that your doing the same as davor your not he's very skilled at the ring and especially twichy cars is his specialty his driving May look realaxed and smooth there's still a lot happening that the eye can't see"

    I really didn't want what I said to come across as critical, OBV's its a very fast lap, and it prob looks messy in places because, well, he's closer to the limits than me. - It's not like it's just him - others are lapping 20 secs faster than me - inc. you I think (just checked... >20s... great).

    But I still don't know if something happens after 130 miles. - I did 90 tonight so I guess I'll find out tomorrow..

    I think I need to do some section timing to find out where all that time is going.

    20 secs man! - it may as well be a year!!!!

    I also use the " corner" :lol:
    Don't know whats wrong with this car , even on -2 steering senc. you're not able to correct the line when starts sliding and in many cases becomes worst .
    I just give up , even with aids on i don't think it will be different .

    Thanks Paddy :cheers:

    @slybynight I wouldn't be worried about what happens with car after certain amount of miles because I sold my 512 by accident and did faster with the new one, I just crashed at last corner because wanted to beat Paddy's time and was very close so I went little bit to late on the brakes.

    "Improved" from 7.36.8 to 7.36.0 :banghead:

    I think there is like 7.30 probably possible but I don't know if it's possible for me..

    Also the guys who run on ring often, do you have some records with tricky cars like Stratos, Rufs etc on stock settings?

    Admittedly I haven't done many hours this year, but in December I ran the Miura on hard compound, 8:19.768. Car should go under 8:10 because I haven't done a lot with that one. It's also quite unlike any other car I remember from the game. Link below.

    I remember finding some time to try the Stratos and the BTR, but I could not match last year's pace.

    Yes, very different driving style than mine.. I had splits to go as low as 7.31 before crash but my lap is basically catching the car on the track, revving it as much as possible and flat out as much as possible.. It's nicer to see smooth lap but I like to be aggressive :)
    That's why I probably destroy everything in real life too lol

    edit.. 1 second every day :lol:

    Damn , before this round ends ...... Ill never leave the " Corner ".
    Edit1-e1454595745604.jpg

    Just wondering if @RMan72 magic fingers can do the job on a pad.
    This car tend to slide without even have red tyres , just a longer than needed move on the steering ( even on straight ) and find your self enjoying the green area .

    I enjoyed Class #39 and am sort of content with how the last race went. Which I can't say for the <15 min. of trying to put the BTR around Nööb, in Free Run. Anyway, at Bathurst - from memory- I got the Ferrari as light as it gets, put sports soft tyres, racing soft suspension, triple plate clutch and a custom transmission to 270 km/h (the final gear's what it is on stock). Along with engine tuning three and all the power parts, except no nitro kit and sports exhaust instead of racing exhaust. That's still naturally aspirated.
    Maybe this is why the word "pilot" is sometimes applied: such cars have steering pedals like airplanes. :)

    I was very slow at school, recorded my first attempt because didn't know I'll be able to play that much.. also was running on SS, 500pp without wing or aids..
    I put like 200 kms on 512BB today, I think I could do around 7.31, maybe we could make 7.29.9 like ongoing long-term leaderboard.. But I admit Im afraid of Paddy and Hugh that they would break it too soon for me :banghead:
    After that I went to a gyme so I don't kbow of my hands are more sore from Ferrari past few days or training :boggled:

    At last. Oil change, rigidity restored and abs on 4. Not a perfect lap, if I nailed every single corner, I reckon I could get it down to mid 40's. You guys talking about going sub 7:30???? Either something is very out of whack with my setup, or you guys are on a whole different level to me. Like seriously not made of the same stuff from the same planet. I would have to take each and every corner .25s quicker. That is never, ever going to happen. All in all a good fun event though... learned loads and enjoyed most of my time doing it.

    Right, let me have a look at this poxy Alfa Romeo.....
