It was a wild ride. Just before this I managed a time of 3:03.13, and figured that was it for today. But the addiction held on, I did two more runs and BAM! 3:02.33. Almost everything just clicked right into place.

I still fumbled one corner very slightly, so 3:01 should be possible...but I think I can move on to challenging KAI's BG2 times now. But man...what a game, what a course, what a car.

That's another second, and I'm seeing returns from my new approach to most corners. More angle on the car, less brake.

I think my next leap is going to require studying footage for a bit and finding a new tweak to my driving style.

Dipped my foot into Side By Side again, but to improve my FD3S time now.

Also beat Akina in arcade mode, first time for that. Don't think it unlocked anything, though.

Holiday weekend yields results! I need to be getting back on the gas earlier. Too much time off-throttle.

Meanwhile, I finally took first in arcade mode on 8 tracks to unlock Original 1 & 2. Which I might never drive because the awesome of Akina eclipses all else.

Guess all that 86 training paid off, as I dust off the RX-7 for the first time in weeks and quickly smash my previous best by about 4 seconds. I suppose the 3-minute mark is the next goal.

Huh, that's interesting. I'm gonna have to try that too, see if I can increase my lead a bit. You're a scary guy, clp.

I found the nsx to be more stable in corners and easier to throw around though it feels ever so slightly maybe slower than the fd3s, no idea how i'm going to shave another whole second and then some off though but i'll keep trying. im really itching to dig bg2 out aswell.

Hmm, took me only a few tries with the NSX to get a new pb! :mrgreen:

Good job, that's a big improvement.

Man, we're getting a lot of Side By Side time attackers, that's just awesome. Maybe we should branch out to other tracks at some point as well?

Yep!

I haven't played all of the tracks yet, but so far I'm really enjoying the "Summer" and "Winter" courses. So, maybe one of those!

You just went from scary to terrifying. amber is doing good too! If you guys say you're using digital controls, I'm just about ready throw my hands up.

I went and gave the NSX a shot and got a 2:59 and 3:00, but its sound grated on me so I went back to the FD3S, and got this after a few tries:

I have the run recorded, but I can still push it down to 2:56 at least.

If you want to TA another track, feel free to start a thread for it. Winter would certainly be interesting with the ridiculous drifts there.

Welp, I know what I'm doing for the next few days. Good show.

The rate of your improvement is pretty insane. And with digital controls? I tried it one time for the heck of it but could only hit walls, I need my neGcon for this. It's also why I play the game on a real PS1, since I was unable to get the neGcon working in emulators.

The what we believe to be wr is 2.46 and done with a dual shock 2 dpad vid related. All my optimizations came from have a clear plan for lines, eradicating brakes where possible to initiate slides and trying to return from slides to straight asap to accelerate earlier.

Ghegs & 2:54.53 & FD3S & AT

I hit 2:56 first time, felt I could still tighten it up, got 2:55 and still wasn't satisfied. Boom. The game is afoot.

The whole video footage is saved of course, but I think I can still squeeze out something better...
