I'm getting mx5 flashbacks laugh

What are all your feelings on cars, the mustangs have the speed but I cant get any of them to handle, the camaro is a nice mix of speed and handling, the 09 corvette is a peach.
Its a good track and you wouldn't want a higher pi, the jump into the fast left is a tricky one laugh

hehe

Car history in this so far: The first car I set a time with and liked was the Camaro ZL1, tried a few others and didn't get in with them so much, then tried the Holden Gen F (I think it's called that) and set a better time, then the the 09 Corvette and with the setup I've got I like it and went better again. I've packed in for tonight but I'm trying the 13 Mustang now. So far I've needed the better tyres for the fast corners, it's not like the Fiesta where you can hoof it round with stock tyres and twelvety hundred horsepower (for me anyway).

I've gone race tyres on everything so far, race suspension, gearbox and final drive, 4wd (of course laugh ) and not much tuning.
My limit is me, I need to properly nail the course and be consistent.

There's a very sharp right hander after a fast downward sloping section that always catches me out, I either brake too early or too late and go head on into the barrier.

Really like this track though cool

In the last hour or so, a few hundreths at a time, set to my own ghost, I've gone from 0.4 exactly behind Kitch to 0.2 exactly behind Kitch, and I am broken doing it hehe .

You were on at the same time as me, I got you on the line but to my dismay it said you were my new rival as you'd just moved the goalposts laugh
You're fast on the last section.

Just spent 2 hours putting times in, had to restart more times than I can count from messing up the fast corners and brushing the walls on the way out!

Hard work in this heat... I'm now more than a little sweaty! laugh

I think I'm done to be honest, I've been persevering with rear wheel drive only to see how fast i can get.. surprisingly I'm still suffering with some understeer in some cases.

I can't get close to cutters so no idea what tune is on that viper.

Good track though and decent cars.

Forgot how much I like the Viper, sounds filthy! Silly long gearing as standard though.

The 09 corvette sounds pretty cool too, especially the blips on the downshift smile

Agreed, I really like the Corvette engine, it sounds more willing than the viper engine which is a little lazy sounding but still great.

It looks like the viper is the quicker car on this circuit, though I'm still sticking with rwd for now. Frustrating how much understeer I'm seeing though and how a car with better handling PI seems unable to get around corners as fast as one with slightly lower PI, I think it's down to weight.

I think I've done alright in the Monaro, I've tried a few things in the Viper but can't get within a couple of seconds of my best time.

Anybody here watch 3dbotmaker on YouTube? Inspired by the DRC, I have created a Big Air Dylan style Super 7 challenge card using his yellow Evo X.

Share code is 182 960 285.



Also have made a few other ones to try.

Urgh, so close to being knocked out, I feel its pretty tight though time wise considering the length of the course.
