    rF2 has some pretty sick tools if memory serves Replay Office and also the tool that automatically downloads the next fastest ghost, etc.

    I've gone as far as I can on the F3, I'm now stuck in the mid 1:25's.
    Here's my setup but don't be too surprised if it's undrivable that's the usual response.

    Here's mine.

    @Tim O'Glock, can you get close to your previous time nowadays?

    Just tried it and it's totally different, I felt it was much more stable and extremely fast in sector 1 and better in final sector but the middle is killing me. Overall it's a tenth better for me so far.

    I haven't done any laps yet, but I will definitely have a go over the weekend and report back.

    114 times for this combo. Not bad! And thanks for doing these @Alex Sawczuk :). And Leaderboard feature awesomeness cannot be exaggerated.

    I'm somewhat surprised no one in the community has attempted to organize online MP races after these time trials to capitalize on all of these trained drivers.

    Finally did some laps today but didn't manage to get anywhere close to my old lap times. Upon comparing the telemetry I noticed that my top speed is between 2 and 4kph lower on every straight. That's with the exact same setup and similar corner exit speeds. I reckon the difference in speed on the straights is worth at least 5 to 6 tenths which makes the old lap times very hard to achieve.

    Wing aero efficiency for the F3 was revised a couple of builds back so you should have some extra drag at higher wing settings. That difference in top speed sounds about correct but that is unlikely to net 0.5s in a lap even in a track with many straights like Spielberg. Tires also got slightly more grip which would at least partially offset that loss. I´d suggest experimenting with slightly lower wing angles than you´d running before.

    Whoa, @Heitor Facuri Cicoti, what a difference a custom setup can make ! :eek:
    Thank you for sharing, it's a fine setup. From 25.7 to 25.1.
    Just had a 24 in sight, but (again) blew it in the last sector. :)

    Oh, great... Now everybody will beat my time using my setup. :p

    I knew that slow first sector would make me regret not trying more laps.

    I find them so frustrating. Coming out of the last corner it seems like you have to wait for hours before you can get on the power! :(

    Imo it takes some drifting skills to handle this. You need to be able to get on the throttle as soon as possible and control the inevitable roll/drifting/power sliding that follows.

    I'm also finding it very challenging.
    And in my case I also suspect no ffb and low steering lock (13,14), which makes it incredibly hard to control slides/drifting.
    I need to be extremely careful not to over rotate and find myself in an irrecoverable spin. Can't floor the throttle properly, because it seems like the low lock doesn't allow me to control the (extreme)slides well enough.
    Not sure though...

    Probably also takes setup tweaks due to the extreme nature of the vehicle.
    It's a spectacular sim experience, though. Truly unique. :)

    They're not too may taste, I've never been able to drift no matter how much I try I always end up with too much oversteer when exiting the corner.

    I think this is the first track where I'm slower if I go sideways powersliding through corners with the Super Trucks. The key here for me is PATIENCE.

    You have to maintain oversteer, otherwise you get too slow trapped with understeer, but you can't floor it because this track needs smooth transitions. A lap there feels like one big transition. So the smoother, the better. It's more throttle balance than steering balance. Keep it very tight to the kerbs and apexes, give it some throttle so the rear sinks during the corner, and floor it when you feel the rear tyres will grip as hell.

    Here goes another setup:

    I'll have to admit defeat on this one, two hours and nothing to show for it accept a headache from constant spins.
