    Hey everyone,

    Welcome to time trial week.

    Post your times for the weekly track competition here

    This weeks track is Shanghai, China (Dry)

    You must upload evidence in the form of a screenshot (PC)/ photo (Ps3/360) of the leaderboard with your gamertag showing. This is because we cannot verify leaderboard results easily over the 3 platforms.

    The leaderboard also shows whether assists are used or not, wheras in game photos of times do not, so will not count.

    So basically you can put in as many laps as possible and your best can be posted here:

    The closing day for this thread and results for times is Monday 21st February at 9pm (UK Time)

    The race settings are as follows

    Dynamic Racing Line: Off
    TCS: Off
    ABS: Off
    Gears: Manual

    I needed to ellaborate on this as there are a few people who are putting up times with aids on and these times will not count.

    Cheers Peeps and enjoy

    - upload your picture to www.tinypic.com (or make a nice video)
    - post your picture here at the forum
    - don't upload pictures directly to the forum
    - take a screenshot with your best time showing or of the ranks
    - no driving aids are allowed
    - mention if you did your time on a PC, xbox or ps3

    Thanks James, nice choice.. I haven't run there much (just the sessions for my 20% career race back in November) but I like this track. Just finished watching Steve Stoops commentary on his race there a couple of days ago and it got me fancying a return so glad to see it chosen for this week. Goin got be interesting to see the first times that come in.. my money is on Andrew getting something up before the morning is out *lol*

    I win.. I think that qualifies me for a 5 second lap time credit ;)
  5. 5 minutes is ages to wait for a world record spot. Next time, can you make sure you get your number 1 leaderboard position 1 minute after the post goes up, so you don't keep us :snail: 's all waiting.
  6. 1:36.259 - my first ever TT lap on this track, and I always avoid racing on here, so I hardly know it at all.

    Lets see how well i can bring it down during the week.

    Hi Viktor, (or anyone for that matter)

    Would you reccommend changing the front wing angle during the lap.

  8. I would say the back straight is well worth taking some wing off, then stick it up on the pit straight.

    As i dont know this track at all, im gonna push the average default setup as far as i can while learning the track, then go to fastest default and do the same. Then i will tweak and experiment and customise.
  9. I never change anything, only the engine to fast, nothing else during race/TT.

    Thats interesting and good to know, fiddling with the front wing menu is a pet hate of mine :)

    I'm the same as Victor, in TT's I change the engine mapping at the start of the lap if I've just come out of the garage but apart from that tend to leave alone. But in races I do use the aero setting sometimes at different parts of a lap/race.

    Well, this is my first lap. One hit wonder... loads more to shave off this one
  13. Lol, goldenbortz is gonna be so annoyed.:D
  14. Im not too sure....

    So to me that means Viktor is still 2 tenths behind. :D
  15. We shall see :)
  16. He said that it was about 4/10 more to get in hockenheim too but he didnt make it :D We will see what bortz can do when he comes back :)

    Annoyed hardly, I just went a little quicker all I can manage tonight getting told off for waking ppl up with the force feedback going through the floor, 4 tenths is definately there its just hooking up the lap thats the problem every time I get to the long straight quicker than grisfiske I end up ruining the hairpin or the last corner or take it way too cautiously (although im a fair bit more consistant at getting to the straight quicker). Hopefully as its my day off tomorrow ill nail it once and for all 1:27 here I come.

    Oh and I never said there was 4/10ths there in hockenheim it was 3/10ths also never did much tt apart from the first 2 days last week, the rest was occupied with amazing races. (You know who you are)
  18. 1:28.187 with one bad corner
