Well idk if i hit a brick wall or am losing my touch, im running in the 4:30s stills hell even did a 4:33.000 clean but yet i feel sluggish. My car doesnt feel like it wants to turn and my settings are the same, but what i drive it i feel really slow like if a gust of wind is fighting against me but my times says im running the same or faster, if thats the case why am i feeling like im slow or sluggish??

I... don't know? confused Maybe it's time to retune your car.

Just change your settings, if you feel sluggish but you're not getting slower it probably means you've gotten faster and your old tune is obsolete now.

Man I felt the same way for a long time now. No matter what tune I use I always get the same times and the harder I try the slower I get. Thats y I'm rarely on anymore. That and I got a kid. Thats a crappy feeling man. I feel your pain

well maybe its bc u guys are learning new techniques and just dont know how to come about it you must be hitting walls = your getting faster in sections u were slower at trust me everyone goes into a slump and and illusion that you got slower but its just cuz you adjusted yourself to that speed remember "slow is smooth and smooth is fast" the more you dont relax the harder its gonna be for you to hit those times you want.

A long time spent off the grid really hits your downhill skills quite hard as I'am finding out. It looks like TRS and I are in the same boat.

Maybe it's a controller thing lol when I was gone for 6 months it took me 3 days to get back to speed and another 3 days to break my record by 1.5 seconds... Maybe your hands got bigger! Laughing

It's a fact. It rusts you on Fujimi but it shouldn't take too long to get used to again.

Yeah its bad enough when you take a few days off, but a a week or more will do it it to you, and if you tried your best to keep up with your ghost, and no progress has been made you have two options keep trying or retune.

I did a couple runs today and ran the same times (4:33.881, 4:33.908, 4:33.503) so my times are staying the same but i still feel slow but i check my speeds at certain sections and noticed that im running faster speeds than before at certain corners when i was running 4:34.000s, so im thinking i did get use to running at faster speeds to the point where i feel its slow when really its not and that i just need to adjust myslef and not actually retune my rx7 because today i felt good driving it and tried not to worry about the feeling as much so i think i just need to adjust myself with this speed more, you guy think that could be a possible solution/problem?

It sounds like that the car is feeling too slow for you. You think you could push it more and stay cool and collected?
