    I think it would be interesting to have (1) single-attempt, point-to-point rally competitions (2) multiple-attempt / cumulative time hillclimb competitions (3) single-attempt, asynchronous qualification competition like point-to-point but time is best lap during single qualification session on a circuit (4) multi-track version of #3 where shortest overall time is winner like #2 (5) single-attempt race weekend competition where race results against AI are compared and lowest overall race time is tie-breaker when two or more drivers have same result and (6) a multi-race version of #5 where winner is driver with most points just like a normal championship.

    The ability to control time trial conditions suggests that the above is also possible.

    Maybe the fastest laptime setup could be public

    On Montreal you can gain 2 seconds not running the official track but driving the pits on the end of the start/finish straight

    It's simple: time trial mode is for "one lap" pace, so the same conditions for everyone, i don't see what's hard to understand here, if you want to change weather or day/night, you have other modes where you can do that :)

    Having fun with the time trial mode, but i have a question.

    I don't know if this is discussed already, but is there going to be a pre heated brakes and tyres in time trial mode? And the start (the control of the car) should be a few corners back, so you have full speed in the startline.
    It's frustrating with specially long tracks, to "waste" the first lap away, you know. :)

    Heating your tyres and brakes is part of your driving skills and depending from the setup you use.
    So I think it should not be the same ((not)ideal) for everyone in the first lap.

    This is being worked on as far as I know, since it's kinda pointless to start a TT session on a flying lap and not be able to actually put in a flyer because you're still on cold tires and brakes.

    Was driving today some hot laps in TT mode, then arrived at Cascavel I saw there are two guys who set with the V8 Stock Cars .01.x times. Should be nearly impossible to reach since the aero update.

    With the "older" aero settings the .01's were possible but now I'm a bit confused. Tried everything on the setup and got maximum push and I can't imagine that sb give me more than 1s at Cascavel.

    Any other thoughts about it maybe?
    Thanks

    Same as with Taruma chicane layout, makes no sense to drive without a time reset. Old physics I was at 07.x and now a smooth .09 lap and only 5th. Absolutely senseless atm, I'm sorry.

    Again, how is it possible that this "Tim O'Glock" guy is 1.5s then everybody at Interlagos chicane layout?
    My 1.38.1 was pretty much on the limit with the Stock Cars but his time is not explainable ... no it seems impossible ...

    How is it possible you are 3 seconds faster then i am in a Stock Car V8 on Cascavel ?
    Sometimes we have to admit we are slow :)

    Dear Mr @SaxOhare, for sure there are many faster people then me out there but believe me, my racing experience is since 10 years definetaly on a pretty good level, furthermore I had some decent succes in strong leagues like TPS WTCC and otherwise cars.

    I'm driving the Stock Cars since a long time but I can't imagine that somebody give me 1.5s at Interlagos with this combination, because I know how fast my lap was and you can see it at Mike Dos Santos time, who set aswell a fantastic time!

    Would like to see a video response from you @Tim O'Glock and would see you on track at some point.

    When I look at the sector times, in my opinion the thing is obviously.

    Not sure what you mean with that last sentence but I will prepare a video for you.

    I don't do a lot of racing at the moment. I occasionally drive in the RaceDepartment club races. If you are really interested in racing with me, you should join one of the races.

    @Tim O'Glock first of all I've no problem with you.

    With the sentence I mean that you doing obvious something unexplainable massive different than any other.

    Really looking forward to the video and yes hopefully we'll see us soon on track.

    For me it's unbelieveable because before the aero update I could set equal times compared to you.

    Greetings Jan

    Aliens are aliens. The name is useful for explaining your question.

    @Jan Stange I just beat your Stock Car V8 time at Cascavel by 3 tenths so I am thinking that like most of us you are not an alien. :(

    I've watched some YT videos put up by "Tim" and the times look legit as far as I can see.

    ...and there is a difference between driving at the limit of grip and at the limit of possible grip.

    Whats legit is the fact that there's always someone unbelievably faster than you.

    I console myself however with the knowledge that at race pace most people who're around a second faster than me tend to be far more erratic over long distances.

    Remember, racing ain't just hotlapping. That's the booze I feed myself to deal with the distress of reality. XD
