    Lately I'm about 5% off my best times and I can't figure out why. If I push harder I end up losing the lap. If I back off a bit I don't get any faster. Any ideas what is going on?

    Did this happen after the 1.1 release?

    I'm in AC, not ACC, but it has happened in the last couple of weeks. I don't mind being a couple seconds off on any given day but we're talking 6 sec. or so in a two minute lap, which is weird.

    If you don't have acti (telemetry app) installed then you should install it. If you do have it installed then you should look at the data and all will be revealed.

    check your steering wheel rotation if it's in sync with the in-game one: When suddenly sometimes I become incredibly slower than the day before it's because my steering wheel is not in sync with the one in game lol

    Check your track grip setting and maybe wind.

    Where can I find that. I'm just getting into data. In fact, some AC track data can be imported into Track Attack, which is pretty neat. Unfortunately, mod tracks can't, although I was able to get them to add Pitt Race.

    Thanks. I downloaded it and will try to get it working.

    BTW, getting slow may have been a temporary slump. I did a few laps of Laguna Seca today and was only about 2.5% off my best. That's pretty normal. My best is usually some kind of fluke where everything somehow clicked. If I can consistently get within 2-3% of that I'm pretty happy. Then, once-in-a-while, everything will click again and I'll set a new personal best and figure I am still improving.

    Its because your brain needs a rest. You're probably experiencing a little burn out in the game. You know when you're tired your not as sharp...When I'm tired I'm not as sharp a driver, when I'm rested I'm a lot better and a lot faster.

    Right on. I was just running a Porsche ClubSport at Cota and Laguna Seca on Saturday and at Mid-Ohio and Pitt Race today and managed to eke out slightly better personal bests on all of them. In one case my last best was in early February.

    I found I wasn't hitting the limit previously, not THE limit but my limit, which is 5-10% slower than the aliens. I can't hit my limit without going over it from time-to-time which leads to disallowed laps. There is a fine line between not enough and too many. Previously I had been trying for error-free sessions. This time I was trying to keep the bad laps in the 20-30% range. It made a big difference. Fortunately you can't kill yourself or destroy your car in a sim!
