    Bahrain T2 - losing so much time!!

    There is a difference? I noticed all of the top times were done in a Mercedes but I didn't think there would be a difference in car performance for TT? Appreciate the comments Kris and Mario, will be sure to check those out now.

    Yeah I'm persisting with the medium TC and getting the hang of it; already improved my Bahrain time by .9. I thought 'text book's braking was a good thing until you said I was braking too much? Also, I keep seeing the word 'Apex' a lot and I'm not sure what that means; is it basically the middle of the corner (the part where you stop braking and start accelerating?)

    Aww man, I've tried racing without the racing line and I'm absolutely awful. Really can't seem to get the hang of it. It's funny as well, F1 is the only game I use a racing line on. I've played GT since the beginning and have never ever used a racing line on it.

    I've been using that and another hotlap as well - the problem though is that they drive fully manual and so some of the things they do don't apply. I also drive using manual gears, have never drove automatic. But I usually keep all of the other assists (except for braking) on. Will keep working on this medium TC and then go for it fully off

    Yeah, I noticed that as well. I tried shortshifting to fix the problem but it didn't work. Tried some more with the medium TC though and it's for sure faster. Already taken .5 of my best ever time. I didn't realise how much quicker it makes you, assuming no traction is even quicker?

    Not sure I have the throttle control with a controller - would probably be able to try that with a wheel and pedals. Had a couple of tries and kept losing the back end - eventually tapped a curb on the high speed left and right and totalled the car. Not looking good for using medium TC haha.

    The inside curb yeah? What will difference be with medium traction control? Do I need to be more careful when accelerating?

    Appreciate the comments. I'm losing time to people who have auto everything so not sure it's traction control? I'll try racing without the racing line though and see if it helps
