Nice laptime with only those changes..  the default setup is so pushy.

I've had some laps too, but they are not yet satisfying me.  I've been down to high 1:30 but that included some trickery: I used inner greens to make the car turn faster (no real "cutting" tho), but that is not what I'm looking after.  I guess you'll be seeing a lowish 1:31 at some point (I'm already hitting them :D).  That seems pretty doable atm :)

Merry Christmas for all petrolheads! Here is my AbarthGr5 lap & setup file.  I used my good old GPMonago79 setup here, and it was quite OK.

You guys got me curious with this so I downloaded your replays but when I click on them it comes up with a message "GTR2 timetrial installer, this file is already installed etc." and it closes down when I click OK. I am overlooking something basic, but what?  I notice the files have a different extension to my replay files so I assume they will not open from the replay menu because they don't show up.

Replay files (*.VCR) are not Timetrial files (*.GTT).

I haven't used (ever?) the TimeTrialInstaller, so I'm not sure how well it works (with multiple GTR2 / PnG choices) ..

But manually it goes something like this:
1)  TimeTrial folders are directly below your PnG installation. Every installation will have their own TimeTrial folder.  The name of the folder is TIMETRIAL.

2)  Under TIMETRIAL folders there are subfolders for every track you have *used*.  If you just installed the track, you'd better start it once before wondering where to put the timetrial file(s) (when you start the track in timetrial mode, it will create the correct folder for it). So the path for Goodwood timetrials will be:  ......\PnGinstallationfolder\TIMETRIAL\Goodwood\

3)  Just copy the *.GTT files under the correct folder, start PnG in TimeTrial mode (DO NOT use the "SkipOutlap" option unless you know how it screws your experience and what can you do with it).

4)  You need to *manually* load the timetrial, the pics are pointing the key areas for the whole process. Click on the timetrial you want to use; it will turn yellow, then click on LOAD. After those you can start your race.

5)  If you want to save *YOUR* lap as a timetrial, use the SAVE button seen in pic3.  (It won't save the loaded ghost lap even if your lap has been slower).  Also the displayed ghost will be updated automatically by your lap if you make a faster lap (unless Persistent mode is on).

Thanks aSa. I have never run time trial mode so didn't have the directory but after loading time trial mode it appeared. I won't post my times unless I get closer to Rampe69, so far about 1.5secs slower in the Abarth and a few tenths in the Alfa :hmm: . I don't know why I never tried time trials, I suppose it just has a boring name :lol:  but it is a lot of fun. :)

Okey.. Merry Xmas all  :Santa1:

Here's one lone GTA after some better times. Got 1:31.177.  Looks pretty wobbly, some turns I could nail pretty well, I think (in my standards, whatever they are), but lost a bit at some other turns as they tend to get long/wide.  Can't take the LAST left any closer.. a real shaver.

I put the used setup also as it differs so much from D's setup.  I have to say again that I don't have ANY science behing my setups (I don't like to "do" them) I just turn knobs until it behaves better.

Here is my Alpine lap. Default setup with soft tyres and low fuel, also dropped fifth gear for better acceleration, maybe not quicker but it worked for me.

Also attached my Abarth lap, chased aSa for about 10 laps and almost beat it a couple of times only to see him pull away slightly each time.

Great times to chase Rampe69 :thumbup: Any chance of posting the setup you used for the Alpine? Maybe then I will only be 1 second slower than you  :lol:  Please don't say you are using the base setup, lie if you have to  :P

yeah, Good laps indeed esp. with the GTA,
just can't go any faster with the GTA, or any other car for that matter... I'll just blame it on my old age   ;)

nothing fancy on my setups. Softer tyres, less pressure, little more camber and anti-roll bar and better gear ratio settings.
