One thing I have noticed is, I did do my best time with the Rapid GT but to be honest, I believe this to be a one off. I tried the Rapid in a couple other courses and I found the turning radius in this thing at full throttle to be atrocious.

The Elegy will become useful again later I think Mo-seph. The traction in that thing is amazing, case in point, try something really fast in something like downtown underground and see how a lot of cars will squeal those tires around some corners, sometimes loosing grip entirely. Then try a stock Elegy and don't even bother letting off of the gas, that thing will just hug around the corners.

I have a stock Elegy on my second char with no mods and that track is almost full throttle the entire way.

 

 

i think ill definately be sticking to my elegy with my first character... ive gotten so used to it and i perform pretty well on most tracks using it... always been scared of change...

 

plus my elegy looks like a beast, get quite alot of comments on the colour scheme (primary :metallic carbon black, with race yellow pearlescent and crew secondary colour...

 

but out of habit (and being a cheapskate) i bought the free elegy for my second character to increase my chances of getting my race mods unlocked, being used to it and all...

 

butnow im beginning to think i might replace it with either a carbo (cos my 2nd character is a female and chicks love convertables... for the legroom :p) or a feltzer cos a) i love them even as stock cars and b)  they look beastly and c) perform well

 

my second character is more for cars i want (visual) rather than those i need (performance)

I believe so. Besides your time Cloud, that's all of the official times. I've got a few times I need to put up that didn't have pictures. Give then an honorable mention.

Edit: Also have man other one to post. Be a lot to change this evening. Will update this weeks challenge. MUHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

That was a fast time, impressive Ringtone. Now don't spend all of that prize money on champagne and prostitutes! unless you share with me.

Ringtone7 walks away with "The Commute" Challenge Win!

 

A big congrats to him.

 

The Commute challenge seem to bring a whole new type of difficulty. The times where a lot closer than I thought they would be. But, in turn this presents the true challenge. Being so close, but yet so far away.

 

Next challenge, Vinewood nights; Motorcycles; No Traffic; No Customs; Solo Only. We will want to see your BEST LAP.

 

Just a heads up, next weeks challenge will show no mercy...  :devil:

Excellent. Restarting Commute was a pain, this is gonna be an endurance.

i loved how close all the times were, but i knew it would come down to fractions of a second in the end

 

looking forward to some long lap races, as a side note i was wondering if we should keep a note of what RP were getting and each take a different number of laps... i know theres been the suggestion of 99 (which will be an endurance)... but im wondering what the RP difference between say 5 (which is pretty reasonable) and 10 laps is... or 10 and 20 laps... if there were any volunteers for the big numbers we might actually get a bit more of a grasp on how the RP payouts work for longer races...

Good idea. Think I'll have a go at 10 laps. Should be about 25minutes tops, reckon I can handle that without losing my mind.

I can alreadyanswer that. Anything over 4 minutes stops paying. 1,2, 3 and4 laps on downtown underground pay increasing numbers. 5 pays the same as 4. Probably 6 laps needed on the prison one. 3 laps on a medium track, something like vinewood only needs 2. Anything over 2 you wont get anything out of but i know for myself when you do 10 or 15 laps the consistency, the familiarity with the track and vehicle all go up drastically and your times will get faster.

Also keep in mind...a track with one turn, basically one point for times to differ caused our final list to vary by as much as 3 or 4 seconds. There are something like 30 turns in this track and only one pedal to floor straight (though motorcycles will fare pretty well on this track) there is going to be an awful lot of places for errors and a quite rare flawless run. Our times are going to vary alot.

definitely will see some variance on this one, im looking forward to finding a good line through here on a bike that i can try and replicate in cars as its a very technical track, different height elevations, tight turns, different surface types... will be a good one...

Yeah, happy with this one, knowing that my 1st imperfect corner or missed boost hasn't instantly blown a good time. Some of my commute runs were on the scrapheap in seconds and I still had to finish it and restart. I'm sure I can get something I'm satisfied with after 10 laps.
Gonna be a good challenge with all the variation.

I have had this happen several times. My fix is to restart the game.

That is normally a cloud issue and R* is working on something if you can not change any settings.

I got what I thought was a respectable time on the Bati, then my brother smashed it on the Akuma.
His pic might get posted... I need another go...
