    Ok, I'll sign up.
    But I just want ever one to be aware of the **** Your Pants Feature.

    I was cruising around nicely in this thing on default settings, really enjoying it. Getting confident under braking and 1.5 seconds a lap faster then just becoming consistent. I then notice the 60% on the dash for the turbo boost. Somehow I discover Ctrl+3 makes it 30%, Ctrl+4 makes it 40%.
    Well Ctrl+0 makes the boost 100% and you basically **** your pants.

    Is that because the harness holds you in so tight you can't put
    your head between your legs and kiss your arse goodbye

    Just read the boost is changed by just using the numbers. No need for the "Control Key" and the number. Also apparently it destroys the engine after more than a lap.
    I assume most of us run with damage off which may present a problem as 100% is worth as much as 4 seconds a lap at Monza.

    Put your thinking cap on @Chris Stacey.

    And Jack - The acceleration of this thing in 2nd and 3rd. I have never seen anything like it!

    Until Kunos model the engine damage sufficiently, it's probably wise to stay away from 100% boost. Haha

    But, it makes it more strategic.
    I just wish we could assign the boost +/- to something on the wheel, or shifter rather than having to reach for numbers on the keyboard

    This thing is killer the gear change from 2nd to 3rd gets me all side ways.
    I'm pushing as hard as i can i just got 1:32:2xx with 80% Boost if i go to 100 % boost i just keep sliding and wasting my tyres. So keep practicing I Suppose.:rolleyes::geek:

    This thing is beyond crazy.
    The torque when the turbo kicks in is just plain scary haha

    I think I'm actually in love with it lol

    #1 overuser of the :P emoticon

    In for this already. This car is all sorts of awesome. The rush of acceleration when you push the turbo to 100% is ridiculous! :D

    1:32?! I'm pushing my ass off with 80% and my best atm is only 1:34.142! And I can't see where I can gain any more time

    WOW Every dog has there day !!!! haven"t reproduce that 1:32 but hitting
    1:33:3xx consistently. I just blown away at how deep you can go under brakes and how early you can hit full throttle,(Except that first Chicane) I'm still losing time through Ascari I think that's what its call the left and right hander before the back straight . I just had a run on Qualify tyres and got a 1:31:225 with 100% Boost :).

    Sun Known you and the others you will nail it I'm sure of that.:thumbsup:

    Practice is for sure the word of the day for this one haha.

    I did a 1:39.9 with 60% boost, medium tyres on a green track.
    I then tried to go up to 80% just to see what kind of time I could get... In the wall. lol

    I have worked for hours to try and get within 2 seconds of you @ 80%. Studied ever word of your post to find the answer and the word "consistently" is p*ing me off.

    The only thing consistent about this week will be the phone call my work gets everyday at 8am "Oh sorry can't shake this cold, better stay away".
  18. im in this thing is awesome !!!
