Hey everyone! This thread is meant to ask whether or not the time you have is a good time or not. No flaming will be tolerated for bad times. When replying, be sure to give some advice to the person asking. Elaborate on how the person can get a better time rather than supplying a simple yes or no answer. The thread would be dry if it was full of "Hey is 3'07 a good time?" "No."

It'd also be a good idea to quote the person you're replying to as to reduce confusion.

If you want to talk about your time attacks, and how you're trying to break a new record, you can talk about it here at the Post Your Day thread.

Anyone who breaks the rules, and spams will be warned.

Have Fun!

Ok I think I'll start.

How's a 2'48 on Tsu OB Dry for an RX-8? I keep messing up the rollers. Best I can do is a 140. (I messed up the rollers on the 2'48 run though, only got like 133 or so.)

umm... heres a good way to answer that without having a whole topic of noobs going 'omg is 2'50 on happo good? its the first time i ever played it lawlz'

Look up the internet rankings. Look up the car you are using, and the course and the condition. Are you 3 seconds from it? Thats good. Are you 5 seconds from it? Thats OK. Are you 10+? Thats terrible. Topic solved.

The whole idea of people asking if their time is good just sounds postless to me. You wanna know how to get better? Theres already a topic for that("Help me with this Course, newbs click").

The other time attack topic was good. I don't wanna hear about how n00b A beat n00b B and got to battle level 2, or how n00b C lost to Takumi on Akina, which is a good 90% of the posts in the post your days section. On the other hand, if someone beat my time attack, I do want to know about that. I don't wanna have to sift through 9 posts of crap to find 1 thing that interests me.

EDIT: Didn't realize that you made a new post your days topic. If its moderated by the guidelines set by the initial post, it should be allright. Although I still think this topic is kinda pointless.

That's true, but some courses are obviously harder to perfect than other courses. For ex, running a 39 on Tsuchi constantly is MUCH harder than running a 48 constantly on Usui.

its true that 2 seconds away from WR on myogi is different from tsuchi..
but as excel mentioned... if you look at the WR and MR, you will realize the difference and where you stand..

everyone has different opinions... for example, running 3'00 akina ddh might be considered godly by a new person in the game, but CKF might consider it crap..
in the end...the only person who can really judge the time is yourself..
since we dont know how you ran your time..comparing your time vs the record time.. you will realize where you could go even faster and how you would improve even more

Exactly I mean. Intermediate to good players can't push say.. a Mr2 on Shomaru as far as a Pro player. They may be able to get 3:01 but a "good" player can't even get close, though they may be able to run a 3:01 easy with Rx8. Sometimes personal skill just overtakes the car's abilities. Kind of like the first person who had the idea of 10 starring an 85.

Anyways enough with that, how do I get under a 3:04 with e4 on Akina? I've been practicing really hard the last 3 days and I still can't figure out how. That's with no techs on any hairpins btw, except 5i4o. I still sometimes drop below 120 on the consecutives, just can't get them right all the time. Any tips?

no feinting either?

If you aren't feinting, then start feinting. You are pretty much at the limit for just straight up line driving.

If you are feinting... I need to know your check point times for further advice. Its good to hear that you aren't whoring TST at this point atleast(as I see way too many people trying to do nowadays =_=)

Yeah I'm feinting, i'll record my section times next time I go. Believe me, I tried to tst on some easier hairpins, but it didn't work nearly as well as I thought it would. Tst comes after mastering eraser on a course right? Only courses I can comfortably tst is Usui rofl.

For me my goal is to run a 3"10"XX with my mazda RX-7 on Irohazaka. Anyone got some hints on how to clear the 3rd section, that's my worst part. If I could only clear the jumps perfectly then I think I would be able to run a 3"10. My current time is a 3"11.

However, to add, is 3"11 a good time for an RX-7 on Irohazaka downhill?

Well, I just ran a 3'08 earlier on IB with minimal techs. Last sunday I ran a 3'08 on OB, minimal techs too. (minimal meaning, only 1-2 erasers)

I was FTed though. But I don't think the acceleration difference matters much between FT and 700k.

Basically all I do is ungas for an instant when I'm taking a turn (except for several turns, including the M section). I've also noticed that I tend to slide and understeer a lot on parts of the road with asphalt, so be a bit weary of parts of the road that have asphalt on them.

@Sil80Drifter: http://www.pzoteam.org/IRSys/ID3Result.php ; Times for all cars on all courses are right here.

@FD3S RX-7: Sadly, 3'11 isn't a very good time. It's over 10 seconds from the MR but there is a way to improve so that you get much closer. Brake early and shift down for each turn (taking the turns in 3rd gear). For the jumps take those in 3rd and try not to keep the line too tight since the car flies there. And as long as you take the last section clean with minimal walls, you should be fine.

The key to Iro is taking each hairpin tight and fast. But for the moment worry about taking each hairpin tight. Again, brake before each turn and downshift at the same time. This should easily get you below 3'10.

@rx8driver: Also, 3'10" isn't very good even for 700k, to tell you the truth. The main thing with Shomaru is you want to get as close to the apex of every turn without clipping it. Throughout turns you want to hug the inside walls but not so much that you grind on them or tap. For the most part you should be driving in the middle of the road, but don't forget the principle of out-in-out line.

Basically stay off the walls. Going slower than you should is better than tapping random walls. After you get that down... I can help you further.

For what course? If it's Tsuchi then with a little practice you can push to 45 pretty easily.

Oh for Akagi that IS pretty bad..

Uhh what parts are you having problems on? With a 2:49 you're probably hitting every wall, or going too slow. Watch some videos on youtube.
