    Hey everyone,

    Welcome to time trial week this is basically people will drive lap times on designated tracks and post their times here. Also if you could provide some kind of proof say photo or for 360 and PS3 users just leave a gamertag/PS3 ID so one of our staff can just verify these times are not false.

    This weeks track is Yas Marinas (Dry)

    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 will be next friday at 9pm (UK Time)

    The race settings are as follows

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

    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

    Rules:
    - 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

  2. One small error in post Anthony. It says "This weeks track is Monte Carlo (Wet)".
     
  3. Stop drinking Antho !!
     
  4. sorry guys i forgot to change that my bad :) i just copied and pasted it was easier wont happen again
     
  5. You'll be whipped hardly for that !!! lool
     
  6. lol yeah i was in a rush to put that up last night and never even looked over it lol
     
  7. Ok finally was able to get in a few laps..
    1.38.416 with Automatic..
    not posting a screen shot yet.. coz gonna better it.. getting used to the track still.. its a nice to drive on though.
     
  8. yeah i think its a good track to drive on aswell i like it
     
  9. just a kinda offtopic question:
    i know its faster to drive without aids, but without all aids? or only with manual shifting?
    would i be faster to drive without aids but with automatic?!
     
  10. auto is allowed but aids are not sorry
     
  11. yes i know
    but i wanted to know is it faster with or without aids?
     
  12. oh right sorry misread the post well it depends when you have mastered aids off and manual gears you will be significantly faster yes some people would dissagree but others wouldnt
     
  13. Once you get the hang of driving without any aids.. you will see the difference in timing. and yeah auto is ok, but manual will improve ur timing too.. u should see the way i have to play right now.. on a darn keyboard..
     
  14. Put it this way, i was racing last night at Hockenheim and qualied 3 seconds off the pace as i was the only one without aids. It made me laugh as i know that my fastest lap wasnt exactly shoddy and would of been a good lap if it was with the guys i normally race with with banned aids. I think you can be as quick without TCS but you have to be very very commited and brave to get the most out your car and risk spinning out on the exit to the slower corners.

    The only time i have used TCS was at mebourne and it was stupid easy to drive at a fast pace lap after lap. Just on off on off the throttle, no fun. :)
     
  15. See i can get away with no TCS it's just the ABS that catches me out, slow speed corners :(

    What kind of times do you predict we'll be seeing for Yas? Just so i know whether to even post my times ! :p

    Brake earlier and coast into the corners a bit. With the better cars you can turn in under the last bit of braking, but wouldnt recommend on the lesser cars, ie: virgin / lotus / hrt.

    It took me longer to learn this track than marina bay. Its all in the braking for me on this track, it is a precise art.
     
  17. Cheers mate i'll give it a shot, sort of getting the hang of it after 30 mins or so practise on the track
     
  18. I might pass up on this one. I have to first properly learn the circuit then try and stick up a good lap.. sounds time consuming :)
     
  19. yes
     
  20. No time (without assist) posted yet. I also wanted to skip this week, but maybe I will make a video again, otherwise this thread remains so empty ;-). I have driven high 133s with dry setup on this track.
