I got a 1:44.6 after ten laps. Still on test drive, so no ghost. I usually chase my ghost and gain another second or two, so your 1:41/1:42 sounds right.

I'm up at 5.0 final drive though, everyone remembers we have a 6th gear, right?

Manual makes a huge difference. Shoot I think I still have TCS on too, that might help me in such a low powered car.

5.0 FD in a Mazda 2? I stopped at 4.30 I think, I'll try shortening it some more and see what happens. I thought I was nudging the redline in 6th at 4.30 on the longish semi-curved straight, but maybe not.

I guess I'll have to learn how to drive a manual. What buttons do you guys use for shifting with a controller?

B/X. Then once you're good at that, you use A to use the clutch. So upshift becomes AX, downshifts become AB, hit sort of simultaneously.

I ran a few laps yesterday in the Fiesta running manual w/clutch and pulled an average of 1:46 and I think one 1:44... ish. I haven't had time to mess with the transmission yet, but I know some adjustment will definitely bring my times down. I agree with the comment about the suggested brake lines - they're pretty silly.

I use B/X and the LB for the clutch. Everyone keeps talking about using A as the clutch, but I just can't see that working for me. Perhaps its worth a shot though.

How do you brake and downshift when using LB? You roll your thumb from A to B/X to upshift/downshift.

I use my index finger on LB for the clutch and my middle finger on the LT to brake.

Do you clutch before shifting? I find that triggering the clutch before the shift causes it to grind sometimes. I usually end up hitting B/X just before LB. Seems to work for me.

I don't know, do you move the shifter in your car before depressing the clutch? If it's grinding, you've released the clutch before you press the shift button.

To be honest, I didn't use it because it's too hard. Literally, if I don't press the button hard enough, it doesn't shift or activate the clutch.
