    @bjl23 - "Great picks @slybynight." - thanks.... some thought went into it - there are some real life people (cos some of you are obvs bots!) watching you guys' performance!

    I have only just got my rig up and running - gutted my 2 choices of race coincided - I don't know which one to favour for the 6 days remaining........

    I set the time to "real" (pretending the time of year matches) and out of habit, also the grip levels. :D
    T1: 22.524
    T2: 38.208
    T3: 56.808
    T4: 1:24.974
    Previous entry splits were 22.8 / 38.4 / 57.25 / 1:25.25. All from replays.

    Spend more than an hour today but it worth the effort.
    After stabilizing my self under 55s ( high) start taking different lines and brake ( or no brake at all) points to see where i was up to my ghost.
    At the end when i spoil at penultimate turn a " sure" 44 low ,i pissed of and was going at take no prisoners mod that has the result of many restarts,but .....but at the end i took what i want .
    Ghost according i might touch a 53 high but that's another story that i dont know yet.

    A quick watch at no tune after that gave me 1.34.4 ,all the other runs was red and the funny part was that at first split was 1.3-1.4 faster than my ghost but never managed a white lap after.
    Too much power ,too much speed and you can miss every brake point by far just for a bling - bling of an eye.
    Will see how it goes but i have no expectations on this one .

    Just had a quick go on the no-tune. Sheesh! I'm gonna have to turn the Force feedback off! My rig nearly shakes itself to bits on braking!! 20201020_022034.jpg 20201020_022100.jpg

    He have " magic fingers" and we all accept that fact long time ago :lol:
    Don't know what could have happened if he had a wheel and use it with MT gears .........:confused:
    Perhaps we would give him the post of a president and not allow him to play :lol: :lol:
    Above all and in contrary with his nickname ( Boogieman) @RMan72 is a Gentleman with a capital G .

    I am sure that is true. But to have any hope of competing with him, I have to see him as a creature of the night, with hairy knuckles, and a mocking laugh. Thrashing away at his DualShock like something possessed by Bealzebub himself.

    It's a psychological thing!

    I don't think i can do better than that ,my dark horse turn is Variante de la roggia which am too slow or too much red .
    Can deal with the chicane, can deal with Ascari ( some times :lol: ) but that second S is way tough to get it right and even if i did once in awhile , something else will happen.

    First time when I got to the hub and got my first no tune win, I did 371 or something like that lap with a kart to beat Hugh's @RMan72 time.. So yes, it's annoying but also amazing to have guy like him around.. And also Paddy @paddycars1 when he gives his best is almost impossible to beat.. It would be great if we could do online races together just for fun or maybe as a team because I don't think no one would get easy win against our team. With a @skeagracing being captain, @bjl23 as manager and @smoothbore12 improved a lot since I got here.. not to mention we need him for moral support and psychological preparation :p :)

    Nice one Boogieman. I never lost faith!!

    Mates often ask what the best poss time is.

    I now have an answer.

    I don't think I can get within a second of that!

    I refuse to write anything about this. I only did it because I felt like I had to.
    Please, for the love of Senna, never pick Monza again.

    well not the update I wanted, lost a lot of time on some corners but probably wont have time to improve it.. mid 28s are likely.. obviously not by me.

    As i wrote couple days ago at pleading the fifth ,there was " hidden " time for 53s entry according my ghost.
    So i try it today instead of no tune in order to search my luck.
    At the beginning i was frustrated cause couldn't even reach 54 entry , so i took Mary's phone ,put it on u tube and start listening some of my favourite songs from the past instead of hearing the mx5 sliding allover the place chasing my ghost .
    At the end Rory did it !! ??


    Pictures will follow ,the vid is on Replay view and my view .
    Don't know if its close to your taste but i enjoy it .

    PS
    Is my new channel not Mary's and i will keep it that way from now on

    That's very much my taste Mr. Comedian!!

    That's one of the reasons I chose this car/track combo.

    I'm never going to get near boogieman's time, but there seems to be a zen-like state achievable through "becoming one with the car" on a meta level.

    Smooth but slightly dirty 4 wheel drifts seem to pay dividends! I can really imagine music and relaxation augmenting this.

    Perhaps I am getting a bit too "hippy" with this!!
