PostSubject: Downhill questions!   Tue Aug 12, 2014 10:19 pm

You guys have helped me tremendously on gettin my times down i went for 55s to 41s in a matter of a month. But now I can't seem to get any faster than a 41. I know my weak spots in the course I can see them when I follow you guys in pub lobbies and when I race my ghost I try and correct it and I can't seem to go any faster I'm at a consistent time. And I feel as tho I'm pushing my eg6 to its limits but I know they can go faster.. Any tips guys..

Thats the way it is for most once u start getting faster times. It gets harder and harder to get faster the faster u go. Just keep running it over and over and eventually ull shave the seconds off. Me and many of the vets on here ran fujimi over 1000 times each snd thats being moddest.

At that point you pretty much have the general line down.
Now you need to push the limits of braking, exit speed ,and finding lines that link corners better and faster.
When someone becomes more consistent with in their times, they tend to try and do the same thing over and over again which can also be a bad thing.
Play with your ghost, change up the lines and see where you can improve.

Also when you're running consistently it's easy to tell which changes to your tune make your car faster or not so I would say try experimenting with your tune setup you might find some tweaks that shave you 1 or 2 seconds.

Alright! The tune sounds like a good idea. My weakness is exit speed and braking in spots that I see others aren't. I tried left foot braking out last night and could tell an improvement in my exits I started pulling on ppl. But then I'd brake in some spots and they would power thru and leave me in the dust. But when I power thru I always slam into a wall or weight transfer to much and become even slower. If I'm transferring to much wait should I soften the springs up or the anti rolls. Cause my fronts rolls are at 9 and my rear is at 19.40.

^The front rollbar is great at 9 but that rear is pretty stiff, you should be having problems with oversteer between transitions.

Yeah it does get a little loose at times but not really to bad I've learned to counter it. I'll try to soften them and give it a go I just ran a dirty 39 because I slide out and tapped the wall. Should I bring them down to like 12 or 13

Okay I'll switch it up and try that out. I'll give yours a try to maybe I'll like it better that way. Thanks for the help. I really wanna be in the 30s consistently by the end of the night. I'm hitting 40 right now so I think I can get to a 39 if I keep pushing it.

Try racing x kirk707's ghost, probably your best bet in finding the best lines if your not racing with others online.
