    Welcome to the safe zone where you can share your trials tribulations, tears and anger with others who share your feelings.

    We can also share any success stories or tips to help our fellow unblessed brothers out.

    I'll go first.

    Willow. Springs. Can. Go. To. Hell.
    I heard the rumours about this track so I have decided to try and get it out of the way as soon as possible. The only corner I seem to make time on Hamilton is the first corner. The rest he pulls away. I will be here a while. Send water and food. :oops:

    Dragon trail death chicane. The only thing that kept undoing my lap. Every damn time. But I got it in the end with a passable exit and only losing a bit of time to Hamilton. :x3::thumbsup:

    It would be interesting to know how much time Lewis spent on each lap before he was happy to save it

    you can generally tell by watching his replay and seeing the KMs on his car, seems to be 1-3 laps

    1-3 laps? No way. You hear him in the videos. He says he spent quite a bit of time setting the laps for each track. 1-3 laps is not enough time to set these kinds of times. Even trl lightning had to try more than a few laps to beat some of his times.

    Rear brake bias is your friend

    Will give it a try. What setting would you recommend? +2? More? I'm starting to dabble in setting different brake bias for different corners. Would be great to have the dials like the thrustmaster t-gt to change it easily on the fly. Clicking my stick on the wheel is a bit clunky and cumbersome.

    +2 at absolute minimum, +3 for Willow

    Ok after laps and laps and laps and almost throwing in the towel at Big Willow. I was getting a bit frustrated on how Lewis can gain on me on almost every corner and I had no idea why. I was braking and turning in at the exact same points he was. I think I have worked out why.

    I decided to watch his lap a few more times. It was really hard to spot. But the 2nd long corner, the very long right hander clued me in on what I'm doing wrong.

    I realized he doesn't use full steering lock. On almost all corners he keeps his steering lock in check. Me on the other hand, I'm full lock and trying to keep as much speed around the corner as I can. But I think that is causing me to scrub and I'm actually losing time. I have to completely change my driving style and my muscle memory. A pain in the butt yes.

    The big big silver lining. I have actually gained on him in most corners trying this new technique but on varying laps. I just have to string a perfect lap together. This is a huge game changer for me. I reckon I can get it now. Just a matter of time.

    I hope this helps others out. This has been a big eye opener for me and has reinvigorated me to topple his time.

    Down to a 1.11.467. Getting close now.

    Just got Big Willow! @Noxrai your tip with the steering inputs got me there, coupled with previous knowledge with the brake bias form Jono. 100 mil goes down real nice

    Going to maybe give this DLC a try. Doubt I can get the diamond times, but will be interesting to see how my DS4 times compare to T-GT times once I get that (slower until I get used to the wheel I suspect)

    I got a few gold on contoller when I was waiting for my wheel to come back. I reckon you would have a good shot to get diamond at Monza. Seems to be his weakest track.

    So far have silver on everything attempted so far, gold will be hard. About 0.8 off gold for Monza, but haven't put a good lap together yet. Losing half a second on the second chicane and get a penalty there most of the time. Still fun trying

    It must of been in the ten thousandth of a second range that I beat him. I feel like Vin Diesel
