Well there's 1.5 seconds to find somewhere in the Eclipse, I don't want to push it though

I've already blown my manifold right off laugh
I changed down to 3rd when I was already flat out, you know, as you do!

Well I know my place, stone dead last laugh

No points again this season for me, think it was Von who called me the force India of this couple weeks ago, more like Minardi now I fear, can't find a build or setup to get anywhere out of 3 min mark

Its really hard to find that balance between grip and speed.
The Eclipse should do it but it just doesn't seem eager enough.
I'm not great at tuning.

Still haven't tried a Skyline hehe . They seem to have dropped off the leaderboard tonight though. Tried a 240SX and didn't gain anything with the way I set it up. Tried a Trueno and things improved. I'll probably try an MX-5 next, and maybe eventually before Sunday, a Skyline hehe .

How often is the Backstage car list updated? Before now there's been a car in there I didn't own already, this week I've got 2 tickets but I own all the cars on the list.

Haha,

There are quite a few, the stats seem a little odd though, one tune I tried was 400bhp with a weight of say 1.2 tonnes, it should have been like a rocket ship but it just wasn't.

I've not tried 4wd yet, though, I was unsure with this PI whether 4wd would Rob too much top end and front grip??

I thought the same at first, but AWD allows you to run stock tyres and reasonable power.

With RWD, I found that to be able to avoid wheel-spinning everywhere, upgraded tyres were needed. I think upgraded tyres use more PI than AWD conversion.

Although at first I was determined to stick to RWD, once I converted to AWD I went over 3 secs faster.

Interesting.

Maybe I'll try a few 4wd conversions on the various Nissan's. I love how much tuning/mod potential there are with these cars, the wide body conversions can really help with handing.

The 240 I've been chasing is rapid in a straight line, just too much too overcome for me so I'll be trying one of those next, the gen 1 RX7 is nice, not trued the Starion so I'll give that a go later too.

What sort of mods are people doing, is there a mod you go to first as I seem to mess about a lot and get a bit lost as I don't really know whats best.
Someone shared a base setting for 4wd different which is good but tuning? Not a clue really other than negative camber laugh

I really wish this game would allow you to apply/remove upgrades in the pre-race menu.

Unsurprisingly some have taken 10 seconds off my time laugh

Last night I managed to get global rank 124ish in a rear wheel drive RX7 which i was happy with, but I can see that you and cutters have upped the anti now!

Back to the drawing board

ETA: cutters and CT are untouchable in that MX5. No idea what spec they are running!

Tonight I've very slightly tweaked the Trueno and gone very slightly faster than I did yesterday. This was after trying a few other cars and not getting on with them at all.

If ever there was a car which belies the stat chart numbers, it's the MX5.

Feel like there's going to be a lot of potential in it once you get used to driving it.

Quite funny dropping your own previous ghost completely off the radar sonar

It's crazy isn't it, lots of other cars that should really do it but they just don't so you jump in the mx5 and you're away!
I even beat von in the trueno which I'll take laugh but then he got the mx5 and took 4 seconds out laugh

Ok what did I do wrong with the MX-5, does it need a certain engine swap or the widebody? I tried it lastnight and it didn't get near my Trueno.

I've shared my tune, if you bring up the real-time telemetry it will give you a lot of info about the settings i used.

Try to drive it with minimal slip/yaw angle.

Edit: I hope you like disgusting 3 spokes hehe
