I edit my previous post for the screens, I think it's ok now. ;)

# D1Racer : Just have to show screens of the LAPS tab, any invalid laps won't have a lap time.

Yeah, seems good like that. :)

franco - just a reminder for you this week i will not take your time unless you submit it by the rules like everyone else - you are missing the 2nd screen, you need "finishing positions"0 and "laps"

Well here's my first run around the track. I didn't really put any thought into the upgrades. I just added random parts until it got close to 1k.

Oh I didn't even notice that. I hope its Road America. Lots of practice down the drain otherwise.

Hey dicio_cross, you have to be in time attack mode so it shows your fastest lap, not total time.

Really loving this track/car combo. After a LOT of messing about with different upgrades, I believe I've finally found the best combination.

Hi,

Very nice time cjrhoades.
After some laps, here is my best so far. Not so easy to find the best combo of upgrade to use.

I could... but what fun would that be?

Maybe closer to the end I'll reveal my setup if no one is getting close.

Uhm... there's something seriously wrong with that car. All it does is bounce off the rev limiter. Even with all of the gears set to the tallest setting... they just can't be set to a tall enough ratio for how much power it has. And you have to shift it manually because in auto mode it just doesn't shift properly.

Yeah, It's because even with an engine upgrade the vehicle still uses it's original gearbox. It can be raced fine though if you don't mind the constant rev limiter noise.

The problem is that it's not up shifting when it should. It's waiting too long and the acceleration drops a substantial amount because the power at where it shifts is only around 200, down from around 600 where it should be shifting. The car drives ok (minus the crazy oversteer) if you shift it manually so the game's programming, not the cars transmission, is at fault. It's almost like the game is telling it to wait for a certain speed before it's allowed to shift to the next gear instead of a certain RPM. I can't believe the dev's overlooked such a big problem.

EDIT: Nevermind, I think you're right. I believe the issue is that the engine has so much power that the clutch is slipping which is why the car is still accelerating while the engine is banging off the revlimiter. I'll just go back to the stock engine instead of upgrading to the straight 6.

I think what it is, is that the rev limiter engine sounds are still scripted to come on at the original engines redline, when the engine converts redline is higher. Annoying? yes! Gamebreaking (at least in manual transmission)? No.

Well whatever the cause, it's annoying as hell. You'd think the dev's would test drive every car maxed out before releasing the game.

the one thing that bugs me about shift is classics with no ability to have 6th gear.. for e.g. the mk1 golf.. it feels like it has a lot to give but lacks the 6th gear to do so.
