    I had the quickest SLS time at the time of recording...pretty far off the top times.

    Poor choice the McLaren P1. Very few players have purchased this car. A grx that only runs mono-brand racing ,,,About that I miss the game Enthusia.

    Hold up...am I missing something? Where are the cones in my game? The corner entry/apex/exit markers. Is it only in the non-event time trial mode, an option in the settings, or a PS4 Pro thing? I'm a bit confused. :odd:

    Edit: nevermind, figured it out, it's a setting...can't believe I missed that.

    My run in the two cars dominating the leaderboards. I'm not the best driver out there but this was a very close match-up.

    I did a couple of laps in the P1 (nice to have somewhere to drive it!! :) ) and was amazed to see I made it into the top 1,000!!
    Then I checked and found there are only 1,341 players!! :lol:

    I know it's late but just wanna say thanks for this. After using this line and your tune I finally managed to dip below 0.3 in the dying hours .... with a .298 :lol:

    IMO, the clutch really only makes a difference if you're chasing for the top spot. I counted there are 4 upshifts over the whole lap, so maybe if it gives 0.01 advantage per shift it's only 0.04 sec over the whole lap. Even without the clutch, I'm still only around 1 sec slower than the top time (my usual gap at Tsukuba), so I don't really lose much.

    In fact, in past games when I still used the G25, my clutch times were usually slower than non-clutch, because if I focus on downshifts, I mess up my braking and vice versa. So the top clutch players are actually making the game harder just for a small gain, and I respect them for that :tup:

    Here is my best lap for the Brands Hatch event that is currently the fastest lap in the world for anyone using a Viper.

    There is about a tenth and a half more I can get but it might take over a thousand miles of practice.

    Run some laps at BH in the Megane Trophy.. It's not the fastest car that's for sure but it's very consistent and easy to drive! I reckon this would be great for the online race and string smooth laps together :tup:



    Will try some more cars tomorrow :cheers:

    Am I the only one who is not fastest with an FF car? To me the TT is only a bit better on the straights and maintaining stability on grass, but FR cars are a bit better everywhere else. I don't think I can gain more than a few hundredths of a second in the TT
    20200809_224951.jpg
    yet could still gain nearly two tenths in the Viper, mostly in the second to last sector.
    20200809_225033.jpg
    The Viper can carry a noticeable amount more mid corner speed than the TT and that makes the biggest difference.

    and so ??????? :confused: ........ what would be interesting is to tell us about your setup now that it's finished .......... even, during the current game .............. as does "sdi_03 " .......
    for us who are 5 "away from those times, we could try to progress by testing them .......... or modify them to do something if they are too extreme for us.
    because there, it is navel-gazing ........... it is: "wouahou .... look how fast I am going .....":lol: ... we have known it since time that you put us your videos, but us, that does not help us .....:confused:

    Hi. These arent @koshmare times. He just views the replays of the fastest drivers, whoever they may be, and uploads them to YouTube so that everyone can see them.

    Most of these trials tend to be won by aliens who dont tend to share settings, but at least you can look at the lap and spot where they might be e.g. taking a different line on a bend (curve if you're from US).

    They wouldn't look so Alien if they shared the super secret settings hence why they don't want to share them :p

    Just push for your best against your friends list and enjoy that battle :tup:

    Ok I need a little clarification here. For these Time Trial events we are allowed to tune down a car to get it in the N300 class, then have the system apply BoP to it before we race it?

    I am going through all of my N300's to see which one is my best and then looked at the Meta Board (yeah I know I should look here first but I never do) only to find the most used Meta is an N400 that has been tuned down into the N300 range. Does that seem right?

    Yep. Like the article reads. It'll probably be those METAs mentioned.

    Great tune @sdi_03 :tup: I gave it a good run and I am nowhere near the front runners yet!... but this set up is good enough to close the gap! Thanks for sharing and saving us ages tweaking the car mate :cheers:

    Here's my best lap so far but I know I can get another half a sec or so with your set up and everything cleaned up :)
