I was watching a guy run Akina DH time attacks today, and was impressed with his time of 3'13, considering my best is something along the lines of 3'23 when racing Bunta. He was using the AE86 Trueno and I'm not sure how far he was through tuning, but he had at least the racing engine.

Anyway, I noticed his cornering and lines were, in my view, substantially worse and generally sloppier than mine, yet there's this vast difference in time even when he's kissing the wall multiple times throughout the run. Is this the difference between a non- and full-tuned car, or is it the difference between a non- and course car?

You must also factor in that you also get better in every game you play...

i would say that its a fairly good gauge...
my stock Sil80 is pretty much about 4-5s behind my almost FT Evo7...

but.. i'm no pro.


go drive a stock version of your car... just do the same things you usually do when running the same track and see the timing. wink2.gif
