Any car is allowed, so you'll want to play at least through the Silver cup to get access to the best vehicles. Or just create a new profile and use GIVEALL as name, this will unlock everything right away.

Format for submissions:
Name & Time & Car & Transmission
Please follow the format (especially the & characters) as it allows me to edit the times in easier.

We will start with these 2 tracks but honestly i'm happy to attack them all eventually as this game is top tier, everybody should play it.

You made me grind a bit for this, this course is really hard and so easy to mess up on. Sum of best would be almost 4 seconds faster but this was the first 1.10 lap i've ever gotten.

Wow theoretical 6 seconds up for grabs, the cars falling to bits by the last lap though making control harder.

That's why I chose it! :D

Yeah, I've been wondering if Blade isn't the best choice for the track for this reason. I can't remember its name, but there's a vehicle that has only a slightly lower HP rating but is a bit heavier, maybe its steering wouldn't go all wobbly during the run.

Ghegs & 3:28:80 & Trasher & AT

Trasher seems to work well for me. Fumbled on the last lap. Still figuring out the lines for some corners, so this can be improved quite a bit.

Are you playing the game from third-person camera? I can't drive straight when I'm using it.

Yeah 3rd person here, do you have a replay? I have literally no idea how to get times like that and figure im missing a trick.

As it happens, I did record the run:

I don't think there's any real trick to it, just gotta be real aggressive on some corners. It's kind of like a rally game, you need to learn which corners you can cut and which have an inconveniently placed tree that'll make you crash. I like that.

Love hilariously unrealistic ragdolls, reminds me of Max Payne 2.

How about adding Whitefish Run from silver class? It's pretty damn hard with cool shorcuts like going straight through a barn gate and then almost immediately through another one. :lol:

Nice, you're rocking these tables. I've been so busy with work this past week or two that I haven't had time for racing at all. Maybe next weekend...

Based on my lap times, I should be able to hit 3:22 at least. But man, it's just so hard to hit your lines in this course for some reason.

I use a 360 controller, normal handling as well. There are some racers I can play with a keyboard (and in fact prefer having digital controls on) but this doesn't feel like one of them...

Good job! Sub-3:20 shouldn't be impossible.

The top-left corner on the map you take far smoother than I can, that's something for me to work on.
