    Not bad but to be honest this guy waffled on for half an hour and didn't really explain much. Handy for new drivers I suppose

    Yewwwwwww it's time for another hot lap!! I was gonna put all the brake markers in like last season but the bloody software decided it wouldn't cooperate grrrrrrr


    Just about up to ROOZ standards through T2,3,4 even if it was invalidated in time trial mode :cautious:

    T1 is probably the best spot to pass, into the final chicane is also an opportunity if you get along side early enough, other than that it will be tricky to overtake and some creativity may be required

    Don't push to hard through T1, the drop off can catch you out easily

    It's also tricky to get the line right through 3 and 4, also to much throttle to early in T4 will see you wriggling to wide on exit

    The final chicane also raises its own challenges, the mini sausage kerbs can flick the car awkwardly so a little bit of conservation on the throttle won't go amiss if you take a line that can't avoid them
    :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: Good luck all and bring on Sunday

    Gday all raceonoz drivers, hoppy here with another quick question, is it possible to have the track map on while in the cockpit view? I have enabled the spotter and proximit indicator to gage other drivers around, but can not engage the track map. Cheers again and race you later.

    Cheers man, don’t focus on trying to find 7 seconds though. I’m in Div 1 so naturally our times and especially a hot lap where you can go hell for leather will be quicker. You’re in div 4 right? @Ad2mny runs in that div (I think) so touch base with him and go from there. Find a time you’re comfortable running for 20odd laps with minimal mistakes and you should find it quite enjoyable in some battles. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    did you get this sorted mate ??
    From memory you need to set up the hud from the main screen and then save...if you do it in a online room it wont save next time you start the game...

    Gday stu, yes mate pilled all the telemetry that i could into the hud display. Not what i usually drive with in races, but in hindsight knowing all the information and where everybody was on track was an immense help especially on entering the track after an off feild excursion so as not to hinder approaching drivers. Completely dis-assembled my g29 pedals and gave them all a good clean and hopefully sorted the sticking throttle, plus going to run an ethernet lan cable from the router to the ps4 and reset the router before sunday night events to hopefully fix the lag issue. All in all next race should be a hell off alot better.

    Silly question, but did you use contact cleaner? My g29 throttle was sticking/not getting to 100%. Hit it with contact cleaner while going through the whole pedal travel and worked a treat.
