    Several players faster than me, remember. Save your awe for them!

    Don't fight it, feel it.

    This thing practically drives itself. ;)

    Au contraire @moodyryder , I yield this round, in awe.
    That lap time is up there with those in the "awesome" category.
    A sub 3...?
    I feel it.:cool::eek:

    I have a suspicion that if @GoodGame.eXistenZ fired up the Porsche he'd be in the 2:40s ;)

    The PC boys arrive, with a sonic boom.
    @Neilski posts an early time this week. He's early because he is incredibly fast. SR-71 pace at low level. He is Top Gun.
    @DriverModFTW is his wingman. Dropping in with the second fastest time, that's P2 with room for low level manoeuvre.
    @F1415182235 might be rehearsing his second run, but closing in fast is @moodyryder . He has also gone supersonic with a sub 3. I'd like to think he now knows what we all think of that!:)
    WHC's favourite armchair rivalry is flying high and this week it's @Chaos_Chris who's smoking it. Whilst wearing a flying cap, clearly pinched off the seat of @Laughing Gravy 's old biplane!;)

    There's some set-up info out there, I'm off to try @F1415182235 's advice, hopefully it's worth about five seconds per lap.
    Great to see the positive feedback from those of you that have tried this combi.
    I never thought I would say it.., not just because it is very deep anorak-nerd level..., but I am actually enjoying the strategic thinking requires to get the best use of the Yellow Bar. Then, perfecting quick scrolling through the power maps, whilst trying to keep my eyes on the road!! This is obviously our little secret.
    Keep circling everyone, the time is there!
  9. @F1415182235
    It is obviously best to use Hotlap and also button push from the start, then switch to a more conservative map as you cross the start line.
    - Did you run "Hi Aggressive" from the start and where on the lap did your allowance run out? Roughly.:D

    Tough to read that question and be comfortable with myself. But I find this fascinating, I'll start the group off, stand up and say it.:)

    My lap was done solely on low preserve. I have not fiddled with changing power settings during the lap and havent used power deployment at any point. Just driving it thus far.

    I also used low preserve and didn't touch a thing after crossing the start finish line (too damn busy trying to stay on the road!) but like I say, the boost on lap 1 from deploying before you reach the line is maaaaassive :D

    I played with the MGU deliveries. Started on Hotlap until crossing the line then switched to Charging. From there it was basically a battle staying ahead of one of my previous ghosts (a 2.57.2xx that I decided wasn't good enough due to mistakes). I basically used trial and error on where/when to use the energy deployment. As for setup I changed the front ARB down to 1, rear ARB up to 6. Front downforce up to 6, rear downforce down to 5. Changed tire pressures, lowered fuel, and customized the gearing to reflect my usage of the power deployment. I actually still didn't make a really clean pass either. I stumbled towards the end coming out of the last hair pin, which is also where I ran out of deployment energy.

  13. Just using "Charging" mode, no manual deployment, nearly half the energy allowance is used in a lap.
    Here is the yellow bar at the end of a lap. Regen was 100%
    Presumable this is the heat recovery.

    Here is the video from the lap. Not sure why in the replay theatre it doesn't show the energy usage in real time, or my previous ghost. Still learning how to do all these things on PC. Hope the link works, and as you will see it was not a perfect lap, nor am I satisfied with it, however for now it will do.

  15. Great one @DriverModFTW
    Wow! Surely, this week....:D
    Is the vid silent, as well as on fast forward, or is it me?:)

    S***..I apologize for the error. I dont think its sped up or fast forwarded but now that I watch it, it seems like it? Video is 2.59 long and the lap was 2.56 so I dont know..I'm confused now! Darnit, and its silent for some reason. I need a lesson on how to do all this. I had sound when I was replaying it for geforce to record it. I did not select anything to speed it up either so I have no idea how that happened. I'm not sure how to properly record something unless I solely use geforce experience, which i always forget or neglect to start. That is why I tried recording the replay. Sorry for the anti climatic posting :/

    @Totall Wrytoff yea you're only saying that cause we are missing lap times from at least 3 aliens! Screw it, I'll take what I can get.

  17. Just a couple of points made earlier that I'd like to clarify:
    I mean, perhaps I'm getting too close to this.:)

    What I meant to say was it looks like fast forward compared to us mortals! It looks epic and probably what going round in 2.56 looks like!
    It is silent, but that's mere detail. Congrats!:cool:

    I am missing something here.
    On Xbox 1 I can map a button to deploy kers
    I can map a button to mgku recovery but I can’t map anything to change from hot lap to preserve high preserve etc that has to be done in the pits.

    I am now quicker though the lap up until the hill when the goast flys by. Any ideas??
