Baku event laptime and setup

Recommended Posts

I´m struggling with the laptimes in the Baku event. I managed a 1.38:something. But that puts me in bronze tier, this early in the event. 

Im running a high aero-handling setup. Can that be it? I seem to be relativly slow down the straight. I tried a balanced/high power setup in single mode, but couldn´t manage the laptime I did on high aero/handling.

I don´t cut turn 16 massivly either. Do you have to do that in Baku to be able to be competitive?

The guys with their hair on fire jumped on early 🤣

I suspect you will move higher once more play.  Best I can do is 1:37 with full areo. Not my favorite track.

Fastest times include a lot of skill and practice and are likely based on driving the track limits provided by the game.  CM had ample warning to prevent if they cared.

Final outcome is based on the races which tend to level things out.

Good luck!

Don't feel bad. I can't get under 1:39. No idea how people are beating that by a full 11 seconds. I cannot figure out where they're making up all that time.

I'm running full aero, brakes off, but full stability and steering with a total PI of around 1100. I pulled a 1:34.6 out of thin air just now. Not sure how. I'd been practicing and only managed 1:37s. You have to cut the last two left hand corners. The last one has tons of leeway. Don't brake just let go of the throttle for a half second.

yall a bunch of nubs

i did a 1:41 flat on a 0 PI car, and i could have gone 2 sec faster i think

so with my normal car, could probably have went 1:31

the trick is to break early, so for example, for the 1st corner, break early at about 75 instead of 50, and turn in early. you find that you enter the corner at 30km/h faster and gain about 1 second there. same for the right hander right before the castle section, break earlier, .5 secs. the right hander before that right hander, you can cut the corner the whole way, another second gained. 

dont be afraid, you can exit caste at about 150km/h no problem, and then cut the final chicane at about 70 meters. you should exit to the long straight with about 230km/h on a 1k + PI car, that another 2 secs minimum

update.

i just did a near perfect lap myself, maybe at most a pro player could have gained 3 tenths more?

anyways, on a 0 PI car, my lap was a 1:37:76

with a regular car i definitely could have dipped into the 1:29s then

 

slayton for the last corner, dont even lift off

btw can anyone tell me the fastest time for your league? im only in league 3 and can only see those

woah WOT

you literally need 10000000 AERO alone for that

that said, that PB is pretty bad

 

 

or it could be the glitch where sometimes you hit the wall, earlier in the lap, and then you get insane speed on the straights. ive had it sometimes at canada and italy where i would somehow reach 340+ km/h on the back straights with insane acceleartion without drs. for context, i can only hit about 300-310 normally, depending on my exit

No worries mate, I suck worse than you do 🤣

The races are just one lap each...

One advantage of being in the land down under (apart from being thankful for gravity) is I get an early start on the race and for a brief few minutes sit in the top 20. It doesn't last long, but I've learnt from experience not to waste credits redoing laps when the rewards are the same for last place Gold as first.

got a bit bored of the 0 PI car 

so i decided to throw on a mix of parts, 450 PI. i did a 1:35:85, with about 5 tenths left on the board

i was still 3 sec slower than AI in last sector, which really shows how much i lost on the straight

so yeah really could do a sub 1:30 with my old car then

I already tried that. I can only get ‘Game options’ , settings for steering, sounds, assists ect. No setup options :-((

OK, you mean the parts that you put on the car? To do that, go to R&D at the bottom of the screen (next to Duel/Single/Shop/...). Adding/removing parts is the only "setup" you can do on your car, no further tweaking.

feels pretty good, 5th place in league 3 with a 500 PI car

against people with 1k PI

less than 500 pts off the top rank

More disappointment. 44 parts from Gold win. 150 credits which combined with those accrued allowed me to buy 99 parts. Still not one single upgradeable part. I think this aspect of the game needs attention. So many parts needing as many as 450 points. How can we possibly reach these levels? It should be possible before the 2019 game is obsolete, but I can't see it happening. It is yet another aspect of the games design that leads to player fatigue.
