    Hi,

    Question for smarter than me.
    Basicly DTM al years R3E. My times are on all tracks basicly as real DTM cars timings (a few tenths faster or slower). So I supose that I have some skils, more or less. But when I check leaderboards, some timings are insane. Is it really driving skill, cheating or car setup?
    For example: Hockenheim GP was Martin Tomczyk (BMW) 1.32,532 Min. (older than 2017), but or R3E best time is 1.30.936. It'a 2.4 sec faster!!! I know it is SIM but it's too much.
    Respect to everyone with that times.

    @wozdecky lot's of laps, talent, no fear and with high downforce cars, a very good setup depending on the track can gain you 0.5 - 1sec max, rest is just practice.
    From experience, I can tell that lot's/ tonnes of laps helped me get very close to top guy's in FWD cars at least.

    Conserning the compare with RL laptimes then this is more or less complete worthless as a measure of the driver skills or sims "realism".
    Because even if the tracks had been laserscanned then the devs have the possibility to set the grip value(friction) just as they want.
    I know it from good old NR2003 where people could change these values themselves and be able to set insanely fast laptimes (offline) :)
