    So i had a lot of fun reaching a modest 2nd spot on the PC leaderboard this evening. Let's see how long that time lasts :):

    ps. Nice you chose the short layout @JohnScoonsBeard , i didn't know it before but it's a good one and easier to set a decent time.

    I've added those two times to the leaderboard but if people could try to remember to make sure to take a screenshot of the time from the pause menu on track we can see the track name too. By all means show the leaderboards too. Also console users might only be able to do that as we don't have leaderboards per car so your lap might not show up if you've driven the track faster in another road going car or not made the top 3000.

    I hope to have a go later. I gave up trying the Yellowbird in green time trial as I couldn't keep it on the Norschleife after about failed 15 attempts (the last one ended a minute from the end). I may have said a bad word.

    Darn it! Luckily it's only half a second so there's still room to improve :D

    Yeah track penalties seem quite harsh there, touch the grass and your time is invalidated and with the YB, driving for 20 km's without doing so requires a lot of finesse.

    I'm over 3 seconds off at the moment and I forgot to save the screenshot. It appears I'm the fastest in the PS4 world at the moment. More to come.

    Edit
    Make that under 3 seconds off

    Don't know if this helps but I was one and done with the YB at Watkins. After the first lap the tires were too hot to get in a good lap and I couldn't figure out how to keep them cool through tuning. I went with 1.5/1.0 camber and lowered the caster to 3.5 IIRC. Lowered the tire pressure on the right side to get the temps up. Fiddled with the LSD and I think I ended up with 35/40 Accel/Decel. Don't think I touched anything else.

    Maybe after Assetto Corsa Time Attack Challenge finishes, I will give this a go although not sure if I will get as high ranking as there are loads of really fast drivers on GTP and also tuning can make a very big difference. Good to see there is a close battle going on at the moment. :tup:

    Will you be disappointed if I miss the 1:14's and get into the 1:13's instead? :lol:

    Hard to know what limit might be though without trying this or seeing a video of this combo, maybe 1:14's is maximum. Tempted to give this a quick go, don't think I've driven on this track before and used this car and it's been over 2 months since I last played pCARS (04/07/2015) so will be interesting to see what changes have been made in patch 2.5 and patch 3.

    Nice lap :tup:, seems like it will be quite close lap times as not many corners. Won't be able to play today, forgot about football being on.
