You scrape against the wall quite a few times there, that hurts your time a lot. I'm used to playing with km/h instead of mph so that might mess with my perception, but seems like you bleed off too much speed before returning to fourth gear from the second. In your second lap (the one with the best lap time) your speed drops to just below 180 mph during the drift, while on some other laps it goes way down to the 160 range. Maybe try playing the game in time attack mode first so you can tweak your lines and technique without worrying about the other drivers?
Did you know it's also possible to go through the pit lane without activating it? If you keep to the very right, so your tires are almost touching the grass, that should get you through it and save you some time. But that's more of a time attack technique, it's not needed to get first place in a race against the AI.
Thanks for the advice! I do try to stay off the wall, but it doesn't always work out.
Here's another run, and once again, my 2nd lap is the fastest. Take a look and let me know how I could make it faster. I'm just realizing for the first time that I'm actually supposed to try and keep up with the cars ahead of me, haha! It seems obvious, but I'm just so used to being left behind when I hit that turn, I've been trying to keep the car's nose a little more forward, instead of grinding the car sideways like I'm playing Sega Rally or something. What can I say, I love a good (bad) perpendicular drift!
I did know about the pit trick, but I'm trying to improve "legit" for now. Plus they're opening a Dave & Buster's near me soon, so when I go and take their scoreboard I don't wanna get in a fistfight with some kid's angry dad for "cheating". Hahahahahahahahahahaha
