lol, for real this time, like I said, the only other time I've been on this track was for that mission, and I'm pretty sure it was the reverse layout then (not that it mattered since that Fiat was painfully slow). So really just these laps.

I was going to mention this but forgot all about it. TL;DR is if you go out and do 10 hard laps, probably the second or third lap (depending on the track/car/tires) will be with optimum tires. After 5 or 6 laps, times will grow all else being equal.

A week or two ago people discovered a way to access game data like tire temps. I watched a video where tire temps were displayed and was surprised to see that they are somewhat realistic. They slowly heat up while running, making jumps in temp with high stress or slip. It looked like driving hard lap after lap will push them past optimum temperature.

That's a big "duhhh!" because that's what happens in real life but I never thought anything like that was happening in GT. Figured it was one of the arcadey compromises. I knew they definitely started out cold and warmed up but they never felt like they slowed down. In AC you can definitely feel when you're going over optimum but GT it's much more subtle. I wouldn't be surprised if the game just artificially slows you to keep the tire model simple.

There were times in some of these past TT's where I'd be on lap 8 or 9 with no way improve. Then I'd restart due to a crash/child disturbance and lo and behold, I put down a best lap on lap 1 then crush that on lap 2. Thought it was due to getting a break/reset. This makes more sense.

PD couldn't give us blue/green/yellow/red around the tire icon instead of just flashes of red when we slide?

Trickiest track yet I think. Did a load of laps and was never quite sure what I was doing.

How about dragon trail gardens for next round?

Ha I knew you'd get it. It would take me 5 laps here to get a clean lap in.

I would like to experiment with that crazy turn some more. Small window to hit that late apex just right to send you down the hill fast

I know I'm losing a lot of time there. No matter what I do, I can't get it right.

That's it. The only time I ever went through where it was like "hallelujah" I thought I overcooked it and went wide. Ended up with a very fast, late apex. Gotta be able to be WOT right before apex and come out of it to the middle-right of the road to get a good line through the next turn, hit that kerb down below as straight as possible without upsetting the car. Seems like when I actually try to do that I end up washing off to the outside up top then it's over.

Haha, I've tried that before and flew right into the barrier. The left turn after it I can get pretty good 2/3 of the time.

Struggling with the 21 BRZ. That T3 when it drops away, a fraction too much speed and you go wide, not enough speed and your exit for T4 is slow. Even T5 you can brake, you can pull throttle and you can downshift plus take a couple of different lines all with good speed?
