[PS4] GTA V Time Trials

I'm excited to see what the results of the rounds will look like, with at least five members from XDBX joining in as well as the lone wolves that G mentioned. Hopefully everyone will stay throughout the year!

Me too. Last round was pretty much just Vansters at the top, let's hope we get some more faster times this round from the other guys.

Even faster? You don't know how hard I pushed that T20. o.O

Did you have a run up before starting the laps?

And did you curb boost?

Because those are the only two things I can think would make a difference.

Doubleg blocked the other two ways onto the straight so that wasn't possible anymore but I did curboost a bit, not much on the first round cause there wasn't much places where you could do it. Only the straight was really possible.

personally, i won't ever be able to achieve such a quick time like Verstappen did. so i would say just keep that up. Beside that, if you would get more all stars members participating you could still end up with more points for your crew compared to finishing first yourself ;)

It was still possible to do it. In the 2nd last turn, instead of turning left I just turned right to get some run up. You still had the last turn but you didn't need to slow down much.

I tried that a few time but didn't find a speed advantage as the 'chicane' was already pretty fast. Maybe there's 0.2 or so in there but not 1.7 seconds.

I still can't get my head around the curb boosting thing, I keep trying but I can't manage it.

 

I'm pretty sure I'm way off the pace this round but that's just the way it goes.

Even if a curb is not on the racing line, for example you have two right hand corners with a short straight in between and there is only a sidewalk on the right side of that straight. going over it will make your laptime faster. Basically giving the suspension a hit will give you a small speed boost.

 

The Banshee 900R was too slow, and to (temporarily) fix it Rockstar changed the suspension to very stiff so any bump, how small it is will make it go faster. That's how it's the fastest car in the game now while the handling files of the car have not changed since it first launched.

First round, the T20 really wasn't the best choice for Grand Turismo R. It got the best time in Cutting Coroners GP because it had a lot of tight turns, allowing for the acceleration to kick in, but Grand Turismo R was focused on high speed turns and keeping top speed up. I tried with the Zentorno as that's literally a T20 on last gen, maybe .5 seconds slower, but I couldn't even break the 1:37 barrier even if I pushed hard.

I took the T20 because it's better to drive for me. I say better because the T20 still doesn't handle to my liking. I don't feel the weight moving, hence why I need a car which understeers a little bit.

I guess we're polar opposites then as I can't get to grips with the T20 and Zentorno. They just feel so light and bumps really screw me over a lot when driving them.

I'm not used to any of the super cars, tbh.

I did get quite used to the Zentorno when it came out, as it was my first proper super car, and I drove it all day.

After that, I had to sell it for the Osiris, which I never got used to either, then the T20 on LG is horrible anyway.

The Turismo is kinda ok, I just don't like how it handles bumps tho.

It will be very interesting to see the differenced between the Zion and the Felon, I managed very similar times with the two cars on this track.

After the times are presented, does any of the top performer ever post a video of their lap? I imagine it would fun and also help the rest of us improve our racing skills.

If they want to post it, then they can if they want to. I don't think we've ever had that before though so it should be a nice change and would definitely help out the others improve.

I recorded a video this time of what I think is my fastest lap, but I got no clue on my finishing position yet..

I just got my time down ever so slightly, not great but I reached the realistic goal I set for myself.

Funny enough, I was thinking of just that a couple days ago.

I recorded myself with my cellphone, so don't expect a spectacular video, it's just about enough to see where I went, lol.

 

Last round no one did, I was expecting people would.

I'm just waiting for the end of the round to upload it and post it.

One of the Yardies who entered did a video as he submitted by video rather than picture.

 

But I can't remember which one to be able to find it and I now have an inbox with a huge amount of PMs all titled Time Trials and gtap has one done somewhere as well but I couldn't find it this morning.

We have Muscle cars next then round 4 will be the Van round, your Gang Burrito experience may just prove worthwhile.
