Shooter is a menace, all his game vids are absolutely mad.

Eurobeat intensifies.

Great stuff :)

Ohh...I do kick the rear out, but it is to get the car into the neutral steer state so I can get the car to rotate. Tha's how I take turn 7, 9 and the final turn.

I find it helps at T11 and 12 as well. Entering T11 in 3rd with full throttle and full steering lock kicks out the back, down to 2nd for transitioning into T12, back up to 3rd and instead of braking, initiate oversteer with a blip on throttle and use the slide to reduce speed and be back on throttle early on exit of T12. At T5 dropping into first and quickly releasing the brake swings out the back, letting me catch the slide in 3rd gear with optimal grip because of the turn's camber. It almost feels like the car locks onto rails if timed right.

And also the oversteer saved me from invalidated laps a few times. If I cut the apex too soon - blip on throttle kept the outer rear wheel inside the track limits :D

Well it took me some time yesterday to even get a full lap in under 2:01.*** and the keep the car 'stable'.

That thing just hits a certain angle and theres no going back, at one angle you get a huge speed boost which, if you don't control it, sends you to the outside of the track and then off.

If you go over the angle your facing the other way in a split second ๐Ÿคฃ

I also found the LSD in this is strange for trying to drift, if you let of throttle it rotates more instead of less, that was catching me out so many times.

This car also doesn't Scandinavian flick at all so you have to jump on and of throttle to upset it at the corner entry or apex on some.

There was corners that I struggled to go sideways so I did skip some.

You did such a good job of it, here's my attempt... although I recorded it and saved a thumbnail, I forgot to save the actual replay ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

I did make a quick drift inspired livery though.

@MUC76 for your viewing pleasure, @Gorefast @LSFDRX your turn ๐Ÿ˜…

You nailed it again, even if PD didn't provide the drifting-friendliest setting :bowdown:

I like the idea that some guys come to the track to go sideways and fast whereas others need to do save to be fast.

It's so much fun to watch! :D

Thank you for sharing
Martin
 
This TT was so fun that I actually spent another session at Catalunya last night, and this was the result. While I gave up 0.15 in Sector 2 (Mostly at Tune 9), Sector 1 & 3 were absolutely MEGA.

Will this be my first ever Global Top 100 in TT?

I did already try and failed. Will probably do a fake-video and share it in my GT7-profile.

This is an awesome lap and almost as fast as I am not going sideways... Livery is a must. Wow! ๐Ÿค™
 
New test today in Catalunya and improve my time at 1'51'726

With TC at 0 like my friend @Gomario JSP said yesterday !!!!
Well done mate! Now that's a nice progression mon ami! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ
Pretty big change without TCS so you did a pretty good job there! ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ
Booo....that lap would've been a low 1:50.8s (so did 2 other previous laps), but missed turn 2 ๐Ÿซ  I normally do .5s for 1st sector.


Oefff.... that would have been a pretty lap indeed.... I can relate to that with my last corner brain error
But that neutral steering you pointed out is the real thing here some corners then just flow sooo good on this track but it's a VERY thin line between neutral and oversteer here.
Fun but frustrating....๐Ÿ˜‚

@Metalgear9493 never imagined that was a real thing to hide them, and I can also imagine it does bother you when fighting over those spots ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚, glad you don't, now we have something to chase .....atleast....when ghost is at reset each...sector ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

That said...

I had a frustrating morning session with always a stuff up somewhere....
Did have a descent run in the end but completely binned the last corner..... that would have definitely been a low .7xx and would have gotten me a top 100 again.... but noooo......brain nerveouseness occured ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚

But happy to have joined the 50' club with my Banana ๐Ÿ˜‚

Congrats mate!
Lovely lap right there.

It is a weird one to drift and the tires don't help either.

We should definately make this a thing each time we have a car thats capable of going sideways.

Thanks a lot my friend !!!
But I still make a lot of mistakes, particularly in the sequence of turns 10, 11 and 12 where I can't really get the car to be stable. And that damn sequence 7 and 8 !!!! ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก
I have always set the TC to 0 but yesterday I don't know why I wanted to set it to 1 and indeed I was losing time in sector 2 as you pointed out to me. And I want to congratulate you for having another clean and clear ride !!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ bravo mon ami !!!!
 
I made a slight improvement from last night. No longer in the 3%
Barely out, but I'm out ๐Ÿ™‚

I am still getting use to my new setup. I didn't expect the transition to be this big.
But it turns my beloved GT into a whole new animal. I usually restart invalidated laps, but now I get so lost in it all that I just continue lapping non stop. It's sublime.

@330_D I'm in search of that zen moment ๐Ÿ˜‰

It's making TTs fun for me again, and it's also teaching me how the car handles before I go for gold.

I actually really enjoy the way that this car handles for racing as on any red laps I gave it a good blast back round the track.

Lock the diff and get a lap up on your profile, I'll be happy to watch a properly set up drift lap in this beast.

FYI, I did upload the livery too, I put the semi-racing exhaust on (flame tipped blue) which gave me the idea for the colour scheme, blue ring wheels and blue ring front badge (forgot to do the back badge).


Congrats mate!

Thank you, it's just a bit of a fun challenge even on your own.


Hopefully I should be able to gold this one pretty easily, when I'm next online, with the way it handles.

Bravo mon ami ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
 
It's taken a little bit of time to get used to the car and how to drive it, but this morning something clicked. Managed to get down from a 1.52.7 to a 1.51.9 - hopefully that's enough. It was the slow left hander at Wurth that was costing me loads of time. Once I got used to that one (actually going a bit slower into it) I was able to rapidly improve. Really enjoy it when it's a challenge but still achievable!

Oohh...I will take that!

Placed exactly 100 ๐Ÿ˜‚

Very smooth lap mate, I couldn't get to that top 100 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
I'm beginning to get very curious what a tip 100 time is going to be in the end.....a .7 for place 100 now is kind of insane...
Seems these day there are only aliens ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚, but well done!

Thanks :D

I dunno.....I can probably drop the time by another 1/2 a tenth, but .6s will need all the stars to line up for me. I doubt I can do top 100 on this round. By the time this TT ends, I'm not even sure .6s will be in the top 100.
 
Damn, I finally got a decent time on Lap 98, 3'54.963

However I'm not finished yet. This car has a super strong engine, I normally have the volume turned up so I can hear the sound effects.

My least favorite section is Tetre Rouge.
You did 98 Laps of Le Mans??....
Like 98 x 3.6 minutes?..... I have no clue how you have the motivation for that, that's epic Chris!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ
 
After more than 400km today and 200km second stint, I improved my time by 0.550s and came into 42s...

Not sure that I can cut this 0.700 to get gold.

Direct capture



I don't know did I used better lines now...?
All I know my hands started to shake before two end chicanes, bcs I knew I have good lap.

To be honest, you probably lost like half a second, at least, in the first Mulsanne chicane (@1:02)

You not only missed the apex for the entry, but went in too deep for the exit

Slight improvement of 3/10 after no real progress yesterday as I mostly overdrove it in that session. Testing the car's limits while yeeting it around did help to build some confidence though.

Great lap times! I myself did improve one second but won't get sub-52. Did you share your lap?

Anyway I noticed that Jeddah is demolishing the whole world with his no.1 lap and is definitely back in the game. Congrats to that big gap!

I also noticed that at the moment I am listed around place 6.000 in the world and just on the edge of gold. Is everyone still in Le Mans?!? Usually I should be around place 15.000 or so.

Drifting is for monday, but I will return chasing @KAlex122 at Barcelona. @MUC76 is unfortunately again out of reach for me...

Great that you are in.
It takes some time to "listen to the car", but as I saw, you already understood what it told you. All the rest is patience...

Enjoy, it's fun!
Unfortunately tomorrow there's time to work far away from Barcelona with a lot of chicanes ๐Ÿ˜‚

I will spare people with the math...that's nearly 6 and a half hrs. I dunno about you people, but I will be ready to take a nap at lap 20 or so ๐Ÿคช
I also hope that he did not record his 98 laps so that we can give him our opinions on these laps ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Thx :) shared the replay on my profile. Search for #gtplanet or #ikon313.

If you can improve by one second, there probably still some tenths you can lose somewhere.

For the high rank on the board, I've noticed usually being ranked up higher with road cars than high downforce cars. I'm certainly slower with race cars, but the majority of participants often seems to struggle more with slidey cars.

Edit: just rewatched the replay and forgot I almost overshot the last two corners. Really don't know how it ended up being my PB.
