70 miles more at Suzuka and I’ve killed my gold laps at 130r.

I wonder if it’s intentional or if the other VGT Gr1 McLaren were some how confused? 🤔

It really doesn’t matter in the end because we all have access to the same car and settings. All I can say about this combination is that I like a combo burrito better.

I’ll continue my attempt at getting gold tonight. But I think I am liking the bird songs outside my window better. Sorry PD.

Well done everyone!

This was another strange one for me and so I accept that I missed my mark. I recover with a much better understanding of Suzuka. Until next time you lovely track you.
 
After about 50 laps I finally broke through the wall at RA and improved my time by more than 3 tenths. I feel like I had a bit of a breakthru this evening actually. Things got pretty "zen" after about 15 laps - I started reeling off faster and faster times. The first 30 lap session got me within a tenth of my PB but with an optimal of 1:26.5xx. My average lap time was getting lower and lower in the 27s but the big thing was how it felt. I was lapping faster on average than I ever had but it felt like I had complete control of the car...just lap after lap basically feeling like I could do anything. Then in the second 20 lap stint I finally beat my best of 1:27.088...

I have some more time this week...maybe just squeak into the gold.
 
I don't see any new time on suzuka tt (on gt website) so I can only assume that my couple of 1000th's into gold zone was enough.
As for RA, I did some short session yesterday, just to try it with CSA, no expectations. Did some laps with CSA on strong, then weak, with no time improvement, so I reverted back to no CSA, and within 2 laps made minor time improvement, and I'm happy because I droped into 1:25

That Jaaaaaag at Interlagos is fire!, i am soooo going to like that!

@Evilmuffin you can rest at RA, did some real frustrating laps around it this morning and i think i'm done with it,
it just doesn't come out, i ran 603 three times this morning and had an optimum of .396...
But it frustrates me more than it is fun for me :lol: :lol:

So i throw in the towel..... :lol::lol:

Well done to everybody who claimed the gold at Suzuka, that one was a hard one!
Long time ago that i struggled that much to get it, glad i did tho :lol::lol:

On to the next!
 
I tried and I tried but just couldn't string it together. Despite using the downshift method, 130R was still hit or miss and I either had a messy exit or was too slow in the sectors leading up to it. I'm glad this is over and although feeling defeated, I tried.

Managed to sneak in a quick P27 before the aliens land. Jag feels nice around Catalunia, although it's not my favorite of tracks. This one's gonna be fun :)
