50.585

The truck is great but really unstable, next best thing would probably be the Clique.

I've got a 51.35 in the Yosemite and an 51.9 in the Clique up until now...

Let's first see what the semi-random draw will bring 🙂

We're going to need a few more to do this as a team event. I'll give it another couple of days but if we don't get at least 3 more then it will be a solo event.

I'll do a few laps.

Also, are there still forum awards for these? Didn't get one last time.

Ok I'm making the draw. Only pairing to exclude is me and Manny so I will put us in the same pool.

  • Pool A
    • Me, Manny, DC & Pb
  • Pool B
    • Lann, Sinister, Schumi, Spin

 

So mix those up. And the teams are

Remember it's the usual rules. You can't use the same car as your teammate. You're free to try any combintions you like and decide on cars when you submit your times or decide now which cars to take. It's up to you.

 

And of course other teams are very welcome to join.

@SINISTER120 Let me know if you are faster in the Yosemite, I can use the Clique if that's the case.

Getting ready to try them both. I normally suck with that truck though.

We've got this :D

I've been doing times in Clique, GTX and Yosemite.

We can put them together when the challenge is over.

I tried and didn’t like it on that track, but I am far from being a standard...

Scratch that. I’m much better in the gtx than I am in that clique thing.

It's slow but has decent grip.

PB’s transition and post op happiness.....

I’m, at best, an average racer and I took on this challenge for a number of reasons 

1) To be more involved in crew activities

b) To transition into a decent racer

4) I want an award

I’ve not played gta much in the last 18 months, so my choice of vehicles for the challenge were limited to the Yosemite, Sabre Turbo and Dukes. 

The track itself is brilliant...fairly short with a mix of straight bits and curvy bits, but push too hard or take the wrong line and you will be punished. I spent many a lap sliding, spinning, flipping and getting stuck on kerbs.

I was achieving just under a minute with the Sabre Turbo, so focused on improving my times in that (unsuccessfully). Then I realized I had not upgraded my Yosemite in any way performance wise, so got to it.

Once I had done that, I managed to consistently get 56.xxx laps, still way off the pace. Not wanting to let down @Lann I sought his advice and also studied @II-Manny-Il‘s lap to learn the best racing lines and braking points. Lap after lap after lap of errors, I was getting nowhere.

A few days later, I repainted my Yosemite and tried again. Lap after lap I would be manny-esque on 75% of the track only to stuff it into a wall and ruin it all. 

Then it happened.....a clean(ish) lap

TL:DR......my lap time

will be revealed later
