BTW the latest Time Trial may be a good contender for us to get Gold.
ooooh, what's the Time Trial event this time? I really should just boot up GT7.

Laz, you are a guru of vehicle setup, any tips and suggestions?

Keep in mind this is for a maxed out car on RS tires. Would have to play with the spring rate and camber for lower PP car on sport tires.

Well, only could manage getting a silver.

And I didn't get the workout ticket either. Back to playing something else.

Yeah, I mean, I just tried it once if you don't count my lap or two with the R35 GT500 (don't bother trying this race with anything else other than a stupid VGT). I think I finished either in 12th or 13th. Highest I got up to was 7th. I honestly don't know how to get anywhere near podium. I got freaking lapped by the top 3 cars!!!!

Edit: It was 11th place. Not that that is much better. LOL

I kept reading about it on reddit. Apparently doing the circuit experience helps and then using the redbull vehicle is the way to go.

NGL, been a while since I played a game on RA. It took almost 20 minutes for me to get used to the track. LOL

I tried it with that free car they gave. I was able to get about 0.75 seconds faster per lap than the McLaren VGT, but fuel economy sucks. I think I had to pit in on either lap 4 or 5, which is 2 or 3 laps sooner than the McLaren. After seeing that, I just exited the race.

I hate races that require VGT to win. Master this real life track so you can then win the race with a fake car!

FTR so far I'm struggling a bit with Road Atlanta. It's much easier to drive in real life, LOL. I think depth perception has a lot to do with it given all the elevation change. And yes, the drop off at T11 is just as brutal as it appears in the game. Last time I was there one of my teammates needed dramamine lol.

Yep, I knew some folks here have probably driven this track IRL and I can't imagine that last turn. I find myself getting off the throttle at the beginning fearing the car will whip out. Can't imagine having the opportunity to experience this track one day. Not even going to try the GR1 race for now.
