    I really know F all about it TBO but here is the specs of my crappy Telstra provided modem/ router so I assume the answer is yes?

    telstra brand modems are notorious for bad lag
    upgrade to something else like netgear

    You have 1 Gigabit (1000mb) port and 2 x 100mb ports.

    100% agree.
    I'm using the ISP supplied one from Internode and have not had any issues at all.

    When do you expect NBN to arrive?
    Just make sure that you get one that is NBN compatible.
    Gigabit Ethernet ports
    WiFi both bands (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz)

    I will definitely look into upgrading to a new nbn ready modem/router as soon as i can, but in the mean time you’re suggesting running a cable from the Gigabit Ethernet port to PS4 should improve it a little maybe??
    (NBN still at least 6 months away apparently!)

    Yup.
    Do a network speed check on the PS4 on WiFi and I reckon you will be about 5mb/s or less.
    On Gigabit Cable, it will make a difference.

    For me, Although I went from Wifi to NBN (gigabit) at the same time, I went from 5mb/s to 50mb/s+

    Qualified 9th. Finished 11th. Went with RH strategy. Made my way up to about 3rd through others misfortune and pitting. Bought myself undone about 3 times in 2 laps and dropped way down the order.
    Race 2 managed to stay with the leaders who were mostly on mediums I think. Had a good battle with @Buster_Danis who probably had more pace but managed to keep him at bay.
    Pretty happy with 2nd considering I'd done next to no practice.

    Well done to @LITTLEBLACKO942, @F1R3W1ND and other podium winners.
    My unofficial stats from this race put @LITTLEBLACKO942 , @Ozglenn and @Hihatjoe as the 3 winners from the night.

    QUAL
    Knew I didn't have the pace on either compound so elected to for a no pit RH run. For pure consistently.
    Qual'ed 12th out of 14 on RH not RM. Was great or good. But I wanted to start down the grid as I seem to race better working my way through. I seem to take 3/4 of the race to warm up and feel comfortable, so this allows me that freedom.

    RACE 1
    Pretty sure the first corner was a win. I didn't hear or see anything so yay!!
    My plan was to hit my markers and let others mess up their races. It didn't take long to show results. @COME_AND_GET_ME7 on the chicane, @F1R3W1ND on the slow corner rumble. @Hihatjoe in the esses. @Se7endan and @Buster_Danis, nice redress Buster.
    Had a run with @incey for a bit until I stuffed up and almost spun him coming out of the elbow. Saved his race by punting him again in the right direction. Was at my highest position in 6th. Had another good little run with @Jcp until he spun in the esses. 6th again!!
    @vanzr took me a lap later. Had a good gap to 8th and 5 laps to go.
    On the 16th lap I went a smidge too wide on the cichane and did a 180. @dunamotornz took me and I had to settle for 8th.

    RACE 2
    I HATE REVERSE GRID!! They are exicting though.
    Started smack in the middle of the pack, dreading the faster cars behind me using me as a soccer ball. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as bad as I was expecting, however I did come away rather dented.
    Lost a spot on the first lap. Kept many racers at bay for a few laps until a wide last corner and I'm 11th. @Hihatjoe and I had the same contact I had with @incey in the first race. @LITTLEBLACKO942 made a double overtake on the chicane. Very nice overtake!!
    Fell all the way back to 13th, due to minor issues and different compounds. @incey found the bus stop!! I was on my way back baby!! That crash looked harsh. @vanzr and @LITTLEBLACKO942 seemed to have some fun together. Not sure what I would call what happened, I'll leave that to you...
    By the mid point and with the aid of pit stops I was back in the running in 7th!!. @Luke found the back end of @Se7endan who seemed to have a minor slow down at the bus stop. @Luke lost major time there. 6th!! Azzbang and I had a good battle for a bit but took me on the chicane. @LITTLEBLACKO942 took me on lap 13 to drop me to 8th, but this time I wasn't just going to let it happen. I took it back on the chicane!! He took it back again sadly. @LITTLEBLACKO942 caused @Se7endan to run off and redressed, gifting me 6th!! I couldn't catch 5th but was very happy to take 6th position.

    Did race 1 on RMs (bad idea!) first couple of laps were good then it all went pair shaped and backwards. (Oh & watch my replay for my 360 going up the hill mid race. I managed that all by myself!;)).....1 for the highlights reel @Matthyus
    Race 2 much more fun & thanks for the intense battle @Jcp

    Ah yes no wonder I was sliding around on pretty much every corner there after!

    Doing a 360 will do that for sure.
    I've found that not doing them is good :p

    Thanks JC.
    If I had no interruptions I would have it done in about an hour.
    But I've got a 4yo asking the universes difficult questions and a family to support so yeah. Glad it is enjoyed and talked about.
    Also helps that I've done a few so starting to see a pattern for what to look for and improving the overall look and feel of the video.

    I was surprised that there wasn't more.
    Mine on @incey and @Hihatjoe didn't need to be as I didn't make any gain from it what so ever.
    But there are several that should have been at least bought into the spotlight to be looked upon with a set of different eyes.

    What I did like were several very clean sections of racing.
    I liked the Vanzr and I elbow and bus stop section, very clean.
