I'm not the only one who often goes on two wheels through the first corner I hope?

The shortcut completely skips the first and second corners, so I don't go through there anymore.......but when I used to, yeah, I did get on two wheels quite often.

Think I've done about 100 laps since I last improved, which is good or bad depending on how positive I'm feeling that day lol

What's this short cut business?  Is it just banter or a real thing we are supposed to be taking advantage of?  I'm shocked at the time of 1:13.872 as my best so far is a world away from that.  I know I'm easily one of the worst racers here but I'm not usually as far off the pace as I look like I might be this time?

No season tables as with it being the first round that's all self explanatory at this stage.

 

Crawford takes his first ever Time Trials win this time around 

 

Full results available below.

New round details are on page one now as well.

 

Gone with a track by LancerEvoWRC of the PS4 side of NoDo who has also very helpfully edited the track to block any run up to the start / finish line.

 

I switched the idea of the Trophy Truck and the Redwood Gauntlet around as I thought it might end up a little bit too much time in the Trophy Truck given that I also had a race event for it.

 

The car should be free for all of us who had PS3 so you're just looking to add the go faster bits.

 

The track is fairly unique as it's all tarmac on an area of the map that has always been gravel, it's pretty quick overall but does require a lot of consistency to get the best of it.

 

Car choice is ultimately down to the fact it's a car I think is really fun to drive but which sadly got largely overlooked because of it's comparative lack of speed in it's class. However it's a hugely entertaining car and if you can get the back wheels spinning and keep it sliding from one corner to the next and be very aggressive with it.

The Redwood Gauntlet will also feature in an upcoming Race Club event this month so you will definitely get your money's worth out of it. Plans for which will be uploaded in the next few days.

GG crawford, getting everything good you have into one lap was the hardest part of this. You often have an amazing sector here, and another there but stringing it together into the perfect one? So hard!

 

Jesus, exact same time as Lann3fors. How's that possible?

 

Glad were back on tarmac again I gotta say, even if its just for one round. Don't think I've ever driven the Redwood Gauntlet before, gonna be fun.

The other Trophy Truck / Off Road vehicle round will be Tarmac based as well.

 

Just trying to break up the vehicle usage a little bit. That and the fact I have more stuff ready for the Redwood Gauntlet Cup than I do for the Trophy Truck racing on Tarmac.

... Redwood Gauntlet Cup ... 

 

Ooohhh, I love the sound of that, please do tell us more! :D :D


Anway, I only remembered that I have to send in the time like 10mins before the deadline and it's hidden somewhere among many videos, since I think I only managed to get a time when running the track in a group. It was a sh*tty time anyway, so I didn't really wanna spend 30mins watching GTA recordings. :/

Plans will go up for that over the next couple of days. 

 

Initial event will be a fairly simple playlist. Much like it is for the Time Trial, it's a case of trying to use a car I like but which we very rarely use and which seems to be overlooked.

 

For the short term I'm mostly going to be in that vain on the Race Club events until I get things a bit more settled and a lot of the track ideas etc. I have are closer to fruition.

 

Speaking of which for those who don't venture very far into events check out this:

Nice technique, exit speed suffers a tad though ;)

 

No vid of the Mr Scrubs shortcut for Mr Snacks?

No I don't have a video of that. But I expect Ally and Potato will have reported back by now after I revealed it last night. 

 

Just thought I should really have kept that quiet, so it could be used for surprise overtakes on a racing night.

For the first time ever, there actually is one! 

 

There is no time to be gained from it though, it's more an alternative line than a shortcut.

:blink:   Did someone say shortcut?   :blink:

 

Here's a little tip for you amateur shortcut finders.  If there's no time to be gained from it, it's not really a shortcut. :lol:

 

 

BTW - there are 2 other shortcuts that DO save time - just sayin'
