I truly agree with everyone about practice makes perfect
I started getting 4:58's then slowing scaled down to a 4:39
Idk about playing but maybe once I get back from NYC

You know this is half on topic. Maybe i missed this but is there a tips and tricks section for the uphill? I wouldnt be getting faster like i am if Yoshie hadnt showed me some lines and brake points for the down hill. And going into the uphill green and working it out by myself (while rewarding) is *tough* lol.

Well that all is true but then the fact is that you cannot be taught how to score a good time by talking to a good driver as said by betadood
The reason I don't use braking line is because I think I'll learn the road slower, but I'll learn the road even more
It totally depends on the driver to choose the assists they want.

No I don't think there is but there should have been one. I never bothered to take a real initiative to make one since the ratio of downhillers-to-uphillers is like 10-to-1. Best I could do for you as of now is just tell you to watch the top replays on the LB. Neutral

Alrighty, sad thing is... i cant even keep up long enough to follow their lines/ghosts at all hahaha. I would like to get this dang NSX moving like it should. I know people say awd is easier, but i really really like my nsx. too much to toss aside. But maybe ill find something fun to run thats awd.

Most 4WDs do fine. Just some may require extreme futzing to get built right such as the Eclispe GTX.
Or if all else fails, use a 4WD conversion on an RWD car such as the Supra.

ok, so i really need practice!
just took my Elan down the new downhill section, see how close i could get to bukkaz B class time, i knew that being new i wouldn't be great, maybe a 4:40 something, but got a 4:56...
so definitely need practice, only problem is i'm only free weekends....
also- getting 4:58s on the new uphill in my Supra, losing a lot of time at the double right at 60% and 73% so something i need to work on/tune out

4:56 isnt that bad for a beginner. We were all there at some point. Work for the 4:50 barrier.

my biggest problem will be finding where i'm going wrong and stitching a good full lap together, but that will all come with practice

To find where im going wrong I save a replay of my run and then watch it back and observe it closly and see where abouts in the course I could improve, for example I braked too early in that turn so maybe try braking latet and memorise it and then go for another run

I'm having major problems with the four hairpins. I feel like that's where I lose time.

We normally keep track of both because of how difficult it is to hit clean laps.
