  14. I don't know yet. A friend of mine has had car trouble so if he doesn't call, I'll participate.

    That's one track I have had difficulty learning and it would be nice to see you guys in action.
    I could do 2:04s, I could do 2:15s. my driving "is like a box of chocolates..............." :D

    And you were right. Picking the fastest guy on the leaderboards is definitely not the way to learn.
    All I learned was that the Audi GT3 default setup can't corner as fast as the leaderboard leader.
    His ghost car had disappeared by turn 3. It was disheartening.

    I know the feeling all too well. Every time I watch those top leaderboard guys, I always try to figure out where they've strapped the rockets. :D
    But the two most important corners on Bathurst is T1, and the hairpin at the end of the downhill.
    Both of those lead onto the big straights, so if you can carry speed through those, you're well on the way.

  19. :D I soooo know the feeling.
    Turns out my lines and breaking points were very close. Driving the same line at speed was a different story though. Where the leaderboard leader accelerates, I have to wait. Otherwise, I push straight off the track. Thats where the leaderboard leader excels - cornering grip.
    Accelerating out of the 2 longest straights is where I'm losing out most.
    Must be setup.

    I was on the bathurst server about 20 minutes ago.
    Every 5 seconds or so, my fps monitor shows my fps goes from >118 fps to 59 fps. But the video looks more like 20 fps, with the stuttering. Then it clears up for a few seconds....then back down to 59fps. I dont have Vsync or any type of fps limiter running. I have noticed this issue in the past. It's not playable.
