Considering turning the driving line on for this TT, the number of times I've mis-remembered which way I'm turning! Currently sat at a 17.1 or so, so will need to find some time
Mistah also suggests to turn on the corner pins. They are floating in the air and help you see through the SConsidering turning the driving line on for this TT, the number of times I've mis-remembered which way I'm turning! Currently sat at a 17.1 or so, so will need to find some time
Finally got some time last night to try the SF @ Autopolis Time Trial. Last time when Super Formula was in the Time Trials, at Fuji, I was a tenth away from gold time, and simply couldn't find it. Reluctantly accepted silver.
I was determined to get my revenge on the Super Formula this time, and decided I simply wouldn't get up from the wheel until I had what I believe to be a safe gold time.
400km later, I managed to stitch together a 1:23.965, which I believe should stick for gold until the end, was ca. #2100 in the world last night.
I drive in VR, and I found it very helpful to turn off all the HUD and just focus on my lines, instead of having some split times distracting me over the course of the lap. I could still see the lap time at the end on the steering wheel of the car, and that's all I needed. Lap video below .
Super Formula is so good in VR, absolutely love it 😍That looks incredible in VR.
Personally I would jump on to each one as they appear, quick 2 or 3 laps to see how far off I am without 'dialling in' just to give myself a target. Then I'll dial in on the TT which is expiring first.Or are some of you doing two at the same time? No dialling in and out? Giving up one or the other?
Who could possibly want more content with big payouts? You're killin me, Smalls.Just tried SF23 at Autopolis. Dude. What a deathtrap this combination is... I see this easily being one of my worst ones so far. Tried it now because as far as I’m concerned this one begins now, once TT27 N24h ended. Seven days... [irony]great[/irony]. Thanks, folks who asked for this and PD who listened.

Yes. I've got gold in Road Atlanta - Red Bull x2019 and the Nurb/Nord - NSX TT's with a broken hand and a big fat cast with a controller. Need to be smooth with your inputs, and ultimately get to know the track - know your braking/acceleration points. watch the best of the best and try to emulate them the best you can.That's a pretty big assumption to make - there are many controller users in this thread who seem to do pretty awesome without a wheel - I'm not one of them lol. I think @Grimm6Jack might change your mind on the topic lol
Widespread praise. You use lingo to make it seem like it was 90% for and 10% against, which it wasn’t. For is in somewhat of a majority, sure, but let’s not exaggerate. I also feel like you’re forgetting the original TT spirit so to speak, to challenge yourself and do the very best you can.I feel like you forget not everyone takes the TT's as seriously and diehard as you do. I just do them part for fun/money and part for leaderboard competition. Most people are evidently in a similar boat, based on the widespread praise PD got for having 2 run alternatively now. 7 days is more than enough time to at least push for the medal goal you want, which is the only actual in-game incentive.
I feel like it's unfair to moan and talk down on the people that wanted more achievable credits and more variety in online competition within the game (as we got with an extra Time Trial) - simply because it gives you less time to pursue the specific and strict goals that you choose to impose on yourself.
How you manage to twist that into me wanting less credits is... creative. But okay. Check the signature I’ve had for an eternity (also have put together Sport mode credit statistics and asked for more in several posts).Who could possibly want more content with big payouts? You're killin me, Smalls.
Yes, you can bounce back and forth; it's not that hard. Just like going from a Daily A to a Daily C and back to A. PD gave the best of both worlds; they gave use twice the amount of TTs (again, with BIG PAYOUTS!) while not reducing the time requirement of either one. Great addition.
+/- means the gold time set “+ 2-secs” and also “- 2-secs” - unless your lap time is like Schrödinger's box, and it’s both 2 seconds faster and 2 seconds slower until you finally check the time 😂Bronzed Willow Sping with the "Fugu" at my firsts attemps. Very similar race than the GT 51 in Grand Valley.
With some practice and tens laps later, I'm at +/- 2 secs from gold.
I'll watch the videos shared here - thanks guys, you rock - and try to gain few more hundreds till the Graal.
I didn't twist anything. No one wants less credits, but your preferred way of the TT system offers less credits. That is a fact. You seem upset of the new format. That's fine and that's your opinion. What's not an opinion is two months ago, one's max payout on the TT front was 2 mil credits in two weeks. Today, it's 2 mil credits per week... thus the rewards have doubled. I, for one, love it as the TT is my main source of income in this game and it's a lot of credits to boot.How you manage to twist that into me wanting less credits is... creative. But okay. Check the signature I’ve had for an eternity (also have put together Sport mode credit statistics and asked for more in several posts).
Theoretical example since we’re on this debate again then, if it was one TT for 14 days, paying 4,000,000 for gold, would you choose that or two concurrent ones essentially with seven days, paying 2,000,000? Same rewards overall, different time set ups.
I reckon this is much more difficult than the Olympic or N24 time trials for controller players. You cannot drive the car in the same way as players using a wheel. It's like playing a different game. I'm lol'ing at what the ghost cars can do.
Wheels will always be the benchmark. But Gran Turismo manages to make the controllers pretty damn competitive.That's a pretty big assumption to make - there are many controller users in this thread who seem to do pretty awesome without a wheel - I'm not one of them lol.

I do one every week as well, usually on a weekend day.Or are some of you doing two at the same time? No dialling in and out? Giving up one or the other?
Wasn’t the Tomahawk X VGT at Nordschleife one of the TTs in GTS?Wheels will always be the benchmark. But Gran Turismo manages to make the controllers pretty damn competitive.
When it comes to the .1% or less of players, basically, the aliens, you are not going to match them with a controller, forget about it. But any less than that, controller users can compete with general top-tier wheel users.
The difference is going to be more noticeable with cars at both ends of the spectrum, the really fast cars and the slow cars that take some getting used to and are very twitchy.
Regardless, the Olympic ESports TT with the GR010 is statistically the hardest to get gold by a considerable margin, it's the only one with less than 1% gold times and it's also the one with the most participants which makes it the most accurate sample:

MY personal hardest was actually the Red Bull X2019 at Road Atlanta... However, this was because back then, the DualSense settings were completely messed up, and the DS4 for some reason was considerably faster than it. This was patched in the update right after though.
The NSX at Nurburgring was hard for lots of reasons... One of which, was Tuning. So you were basically not on equal footing with other players, plus the car was the NSX... Which while a very good drive, it was still a handful and of course... At the Nurburgring with over 170 corners to gain/lose time on.
The Theoretical hardest TT would be something like the Tomahawk X at the Nurburgring. Pray it never comes.
I do one every week as well, usually on a weekend day.
I however stopped trying my hardest for a while now, aside from the really hard ones where I have to actually put some effort to get gold.
If I do like the TT combo, I tend to go the extra mile as well, but still not super into it.
These days I only go for a lap that guarantees me gold by the end of the TT.
I dislike any form of Willow, plus, on a car that doesn't interest me, so I definitely won't sink much time on this one. Unless it turns out to be extremely hard, which I doubt it.
More importantly...did you land on the outhouse?Really curious to see how this one squares up difficulty wise in the statistics. Track is an absolute enigma to drive around, I've done a fair few laps, down into a 16.5 - and I still don't actually know how to take the corners properly.
..unless this is "properly"

The biggest problem with the Super Formula is how quickly it loses grip when you overstep the mark a little. If you aren't paying attention you'll be off in an instant. The trick is finding that perfect balance through each corner to maximise apex speed. Such a temperamental machine requires accurate control on the absolute ragged edge; something that's hard to achieve for most.I have no understanding of the SF23. One second it feels like like I'm riding on rails. The next, the back end is suddenly snapping around and I'm desperately trying save it. I picked up a miniscule .068 yesterday, to 1:23.761. I couldn't even get under 1:24 today. The most annoying part of today's adventure was being up over .4 seconds on my best and somehow spinning in the final corner while in FOURTH gear! How is that even possible? Anyway, I'm roughly half a second ahead of gold at the moment. If I can't find any more time and see that the time will hold, I reckon I may move on to the Greddy Fugu Z here soon.
I don't know about Streets of Willow, but if you watch Herbie you'll see the race on Big Willow being run in reverse!I didn't even know that Streets of Willow had a reverse layout
I have exactly the same, it just seems to feel different on different stints, and it should be placebo but it seems to be gripping better after a few laps, what should not be the case .... prob just me,I have no understanding of the SF23.

Of course, I'm not particularly a fan of any of the Willow Springs layouts. It could use some foliage. The barren land of sand and dirt makes for incredibly uninteresting surroundings for me. Just give me something green! Even just some grass would make it look less bleh and more fun to drive around.
I would prefer a specific ranking for users with a steering wheel and one for users who play with the controller. It would be more fair.Guys, how many of you would like 3 TTs at same time, 3 weeks time for each? Every Thursday new one starts and as a suggestion one can be difficult as example like Nordschleife, second medium difficulty, and third one one not so difficult.
