Has anyone tried both the Zion and the Felon?

I've bought the Felon for it since I much prefer it not to mention there's loads of straights that will favor it (I think), but I would like to know how the Zion compares to it.

I've never had a fully modified one so I have no idea how fast it is. All I know is it handles better, but sometimes too much grip makes the cars end up losing the tail if taken too far.

I'm going to give it a shot with the Examplar I think, it used to be mighty in a straight line and there's a couple of long straights

I probably won't start until Friday, so I can't say that yet but I've owned both the Felon and Zion fully upgraded and raced them, I have to say the felon is un-drivable if you've driven the Zion. Never going back.

From what I knew it was pretty big in the coupe class. I have it as I love Aston Martin's but if it can do the job, I'll give it a shot

I did a couple of laps with the Exemplar but it's a couple of seconds off for me.

 

I always lose speed on turn 12 in the Exemplar because of the traction. So far, the best car for me would be the Zion.

Oioioi, i knew there were still seconds to shave off my time, but 4 seconds?! Holy sh*t, congrats!

 

really lookin forward to test the new track the next days! Great work doubleG, im glad i've joined the TTs.

Hope to reach the top ten again.

Didn't expect it to be that much fun, comparing times with other nerds ;-) i luv it.

 

Good luck on round II y'all

 

Sincerly,

Soo much this! When we ran this on flashback Friday I hit them every single turn.

Although what Mafia isn't telling you here is that he was actually trying to turn right at the time.

 

The barriers are to ensure you take the correct line, out in real world racing you have to learn such things so you don't have these accidents.

I did about six laps last night to see the course, it's got a couple of suprises up it's sleeve.

 

Quick question to DoubleG, if I submit a time am I then locked to that vehicle or is it possible to change later?

No you can pretty much please yourself dewtech.

 

I'll enter whatever you submit first and you can change it later.

 

It's a little easier for me to get the times as we go anyway, although I have the results pretty much automated, it's easier if I have them in dribs and drabs so I am not inundated on the last day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Side note for everyone in general. I'm also thinking I may throw in a couple of bonus time trials at some point. They won't count toward the championship but just as something to give people a little break from the normal ones now and again.

 

Most likely it would be something silly, like a Golf Kart or Mule bonus round, just for fun and probably allow laps to be posted in thread as well.

Few from our crew are considering entering this, eventhough we've missed the 1st challenge. We've been doing a similar competition in our crew for almost 2 years now, running a weekly challenge, which mostly means a fastest lap around a certain track, though we do mix it up with various other challenges or different rules each week. We usually publicly share our times and even ways to achieve them (which car, what lines etc), which pushes us even further and actually helps us all improve and get better. We do however have few genteman rules which we stick to though.

 

So just to clear few things first. As I understand, anything goes, as long as it's not using slipstream to your advantage? I'm guessing there's no rule on run-ups either, is there?

Current challenge massively favours a run-up for example. Not to mention those sidewalk surfers as well, but that's part of the game I guess.

If I haven't blocked it you can do a run up.

 

There isn't much to be gained on this one from it as I'm typically at full speed before the line anyway from a standard lap. Where possible I block curbs to limit boosting, but with 50 props there is only so much you can do anyway.

 

We stipulate the run on your own rules specifically to remove the exploiting of slipstreams etc.

at almost all TT races the oppurtunity to do run ups us blocked, G has also put barriers at some of the sidewalks as well if i remember correctly on this track.

Curb surfing isn't going to be much of a problem for this track as it's already so bumpy that the road itself acts as a curb boost.

I find that the last round was bumpier.

This one is easier imo and there's plenty of places to curb boost, not that it's a problem tbh.

 

Also, it's not just slipstream but catchup you need to turn off as well ;) But non-contact fixes that.

G stated in the rules though that you're only allowed to run with others if you're doing the TT with a Senior Partner or Partner so it's best to do it solo. Otherwise, your submission would get voided.

Thanks for answering my questions.

 

Personally I don't think it's completely fair to be mixing PS and PC users, as it's been proven several times that times on both platforms differ, but it's your show. Sounds fun and that's what matters anyway, so I'll give it a go and I'm sure few other crew mates will too. As long as time permits, I should be able to run some laps every few weeks. If it's still open for new participants?

 

P.S. Never underestimate the power of a run-up. ;) Even with a relatively short section from start/finish line to the first turn on this track, it still means approximately a 0.5sec advantage.

It's still open to new players yes. just make sure to read the rules om the first page. Picture/screenshot must contain your ingame name, choice of car and the time of your fastest lap. and don't forget to state the crew that you want to represent when you send in your time.

Have you checked the last round results?

Because gtaplayer and myself play on PS3 and we still had a huge advantage over the rest.

PC (and even CG) may be able to get quicker times because of the higher FPS but on the other hand it's slightly harder to drive precisely for the same reason ;)

 

Also, even if you and your crew mates start participating late, the event is divided in seasons.

It's a great course, so far the only corners I seem to loose time are 6/7 (Either go to fast, smack the outside wall or end up cutting the grass on 7, or go slow and feel terrible, or cut the corner and roll it) and 13, that hill feels damn slow if you get the corner wrong.

I posted a couple of times earlier in this thread making it sound as if I was going to take part but then never actually submitted my time. I didn't drop out but rather just don't have an account with any kind of image uploading site so couldn't submit my Grand Turismo R time to doubleg213. So in the unlikely event that anyone was wondering what happened to me my time was 146.007 using a Zentorno so I guess that would have put me in 21st position in the overall results table with 1 point. Obviously I can't be officially entered into things with not being able to submit my times but I'm still going to follow along and try and get the fastest time I can manage on each track for my own enjoyment and I'll keep track of my own points tally and how I would fit into the results table as it goes along.

 

On the new Pac to Basics track I agree with what others have said in that those barriers really caught me by surprise the first couple of times. I can usually navigate around them now though without loosing speed. Tracks are really good so far doubleg213 so great work on putting them together :)

^you don't need an account on an uploading site?

 

both Imgur.com and Tinypic.com can be used without having to create an account or log in in any way. so if you just take a picture of your lap time with your phone, upload it to imgur or tiny pic and just send it to DoubleG.

 

i don't have an account on a webhosting site either but they're available to everybody.

 

i'm not sure how screenshots from pc or ps4 should be uploaded, but you can always take a pic with a camera or phone.

 

it does mean that you have missed round 1, but you can still jump in with round 2 ;)

 

 

EDIT: or as dew said, it may also be allowed to PM your time in to the Van Society twitter account to which all VS senior partners (including doubleG) have acces to
