Excellent choice.

Love the Ducati 999R RM - the one and only bike I managed to break into sub 7 minutes with at the 'Ring - and while 80's Fuji has a beginner friendly layout, those corners can be tough to nail.

Thanks MXHyland - When I turn on the PS2, I start my playing day by doing races on Fuji Speedway 80's first.

Remember: You still have 1 week to send your lap time. Did you read the details on OP?

Yes, loud and clear.

The first rule of the thread: You do not talk about your lap time. The second rule of the thread: You do NOT talk about your lap time.

That's correct. ๐Ÿ‘ Because if this rule is applied, then the rule will prevent the thread from getting cluttered.

Oh man, this is amazing! Looks like I didn't waste money buying this a few months ago. Great game, but I can't play online with anyone. At least this gives me a reason to play!
Funny story about that, I bought it at Gamestop when they were trying to get rid of all their PS2 games. I picked it up for a bank-breaking 54 cents. I haven't checked if they actually stopped selling PS2 games yet. I hope not, I'll buy ALL THE THINGS! And we will have ALL THE TIME TRIALS!

Anyway, I don't have this bike yet (pain in the butt to get the superbikes). If I could somehow dig through all the boxes in my basement and find my Gameshark, and if there was a cheat to unlock the bike (and if, by some miracle, it actually worked), would I be allowed to use JUST that cheat? Or is it still off-limits?

You can unlock this bike by Challenge Mode if you have completed the Super License.

Well, you can unlock the bike through Gameshark too, but you cannot use the Hybriding cheat.

Ok, cool. I'll try to unlock it, but that challenge mode race is ridiculous! But isn't hybriding only possible by using an emulator?

Thanks. Yes, hybriding is possible only by using an emulator. But here is an Weekly time trial, so nobody will be able to use the hybrids.

So, I've been doing some practice laps today and hit a lap time which I could no longer improve on for the time being. I found a fairly good racing line trying to perfect those high speed turns but it's really hard nail them. I find the last turn/part to be particularly hard as pretty much makes or breaks your laptime if you're not carrying enough speed - not to mention the rear wheel spinning in 3rd and 4th gear in Pro Mode.

It's all about consistency.

Yeah, it is a little tricky to nail them, but as I play it a long time ago, it is more easier for me. I use L2 and L3 buttons to gain more speed on the bike. It was also difficult for me because everytime I broke off in a straight line to do an corner, the bike flipped upside down which made me fall off. But I also made an lap time.

If you have made an lap time, then please send it by PM. ๐Ÿ‘

And another thing guys: You still have one week to improve. The deadline is November 18th.

Leaning forward? I tend to avoid that as I haven't noticed any advantages doing so.

I'll also make sure to send a PM once I've stopped fiddling with the settings and have at least achieved my goal for a lap time.

I can honestly say that after this, maybe we can try a slower, easier to control bike? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Consistency definitely is the key, but on this bike it's a pain.
Speaking of which, maybe the winner can pick the next bike (or the track)?

I think he means leaning back. That definitely helps, whereas leaning forward (especially on this bike) will only make you either flip over or make you lose traction.

Hmm, having played TT on and off for seven years, I never considered it - especially on bikes such as the 999R RM which are very prone to wheelie.

I'll have to run some tests later on today.

You can try slower, as long you complete the track. ;)

Yeah. If you lean back at high speed, you'll accelerate a bit faster. And actually, at low speeds if you pull a wheelie at JUST the right angle (I'd say maybe 15 to 20 degrees in relation to the ground), it has the same effect. On this bike, though, I'd recommend only leaning back around mid-4th gear, that's when you get the biggest boost.

@Harsk100 I'm in it to win it! "Slow" just isn't happening. ;)

I tried it and ran at least ten laps trying to get the hang of said technique but just couldn't for my life keep up with my best time that way.
