    I had to see what all of the fuss was about & tried Praiano63's settings. I had to adjust some of them, but they got better results than my own specs. I'm back up to #1201 from somewhere in the 2600's with a 1:13.826. Geez, this car at 1,000+ HP is nerve wracking.

    Make that 1:13.636 (#1057)
    Down to 1:13.102 (#729) potentially 1:12.845
    Now at 1:13.032 (#698) potential 1:12.692

    Not good.... have just dropped out of the "top" 3,000 as unable to improve on my dismal lap time! Not had many goes, but giving up until the new set on Wednesday....:cheers:

    Be comforting if there were 10,000+ participants but as the car costs a million, there's probably not many more than 3,000! ;)

    I had my best performances at the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Ferrari 365 GTB4 Super Laps and they were set on September 30.

    Is there a way to find out the rankings sorted by country/region? Asking for a friend.

    F1 at Suzuka. Sounds like a plan. :cheers:
    S800 at BB. Not too bad either.

    I am done with these new Time Trials, but It would be nice if PD gives us different cars to use in each of these Time Trials, instead of these on one make rubbish. Well I just have to wait another 14 days for new Time Trials to come.

    BB Raceway in the Honda, what a shocker.

    The 'Ring, or somewhere with some teeth fair enough, but 30 seconds of racing in one gear, give me a break, and I thought racing the Chev was a bad race.

    Anyway 38.907 and that will probably be my time in two weeks time. Very disappointing.

    The DRS works as Overtake if mapped? I could see it highlighting up various zones but the flap wasn’t opening.
    1:47.106 - Took it tentatively as I didn’t wanna come flying off.

    Sweet! They finally got it right, tuning on the car I don’t like and a decent non tuning TT. :)

    I don't know what the joke is, nor what your question is, but as we clearly state in the article, it's the regular car and not the "Color Variation" car.

    That seems odd, is there a difference between them other than color?

    You can use one of them in this time trial, but not the other :D

    Otherwise, nope. As I recall, you can't even put the CV into the livery editor.

    World records is here!

    P. S. TRL_ADAM18 with world record time 1:31.076 was unable to save replay, so I take second time.

    You're telling me...
    Just fired up the game to see the new TT options.
    I can't remember when I ever saw a race when your exit speed from turn 1 determines your pace crossing the line for the next lap :crazy::crazy:

    Is there any way to see your final results once the event ends? I'm sure there is but I can't find it.

    Man, I thought that I was still way off the pace after watching praiano63 video. Until I realised that it was not from the TT and used RSS tyres.:)
    Will test your tune for sure :cheers:

    My F1 TT time. 1:32.837. Tuned full down force, max power and light as possible. All else stock BB2
    Used cockpitview for this beast. slows things down a bit. Tip. Learn the DRS zones and push the button before you enter the zone. Or you most likely miss some time,

    Saved replay for fastest lap


    Real game capture for 1:33.9 lap


    Just a blast to drive, and will get back on this one for sure. ;)

    Now, the Honda. It's also fun, but track is so short, that boredom will rise its head fast...
    Notice, that to be fast, you need to use the last turn to get max speed to the record lap.

    I had some laps at Suzuka and I don't usually tune the car myself but on this occasion I gave it a go... and it's not too bad! Early days yet but here's my best lap and the tune I used which is a work in progress for now.. Great combo this one! Those top times are wicked fast :tup:



    For the gears I done the usual final gear to max and top speed to minimum and then adjust the individual gears and final from there :cheers:

    I just tried the Honda at BB, fun little combo but I’m sure it will get boring fast. This is the one race you DO Win in T1. :lol:
    Got it to a 39.127 so far, still working on it though. :)

    Yep, and take the outside lane at the last corner to get faster over the line for your next attempt if you're behind your ghost at that point..

    Managed a 39.007 in the Honda, feels like it would actually be a fun little car on a decent circuit. One corner demands a bit of attention to get right the rest of the track is a bit of a snooze, can't say I have ever lapped a track in the same gear before.... what a bizarre time trial lol

    Edit- into the 38's after a few laps this morning with a 38.986
