My second lap with the Elise was around curly's time, didn't get the exact time though. Damage off might be a good idea... waaaaay too many corners to remember...

8:30.xxx with the Exige...... from a standing start, lol. My 99 sport is a tad slower on the up-hill.

My Z4 did a decent pace at 8:37.xxx from a stop, and my NA miata a second behind it.

Damn flier, I'm running almost 30 seconds slower than you in the 99 Elise Sport. Have any tips? I can't seem to figure out the uphill section very easily... the downhill isn't too bad though - I've driven it lots from drifting, etc.

You can either tune for the uphill or tune for the downhill. I get better times when I focus on the downhill.

8:32 in the exige from a standing start still working on the tune.

Apparently the Exige is the car to go for...

Out of curiosity, which camera view are most people driving in? I used to run in the bumper cam, but I recently started running in the cockpit cam - depending on the car. Others?

cockpit cam though I'm sure bumper cam is probably better as far as precision goes. It's just not as fun.

Also 8:29 is possible in the exige from a dead stop if you keep the gas pegged don't use the brakes the whole time lol.

Most mid-engine cars in this game don't like it when you let off the throttle. So I basically always have some sort of throttle put in around every turn, lol.

Also, I run on the hood cam. It's nice to see where your car may or may not hit.

I'm up for some hot-lapping tonight. If the forza site stops acting up maybe I can get results from Sunday up, lol.
