Adding mine, though it's not as good as several of the existing times.  I feel like this was just about a perfect run for this time, I don't know how much else I can trim it, let alone by 6-7 entire seconds :)  I'll see about giving it some more tries later this month, but until then, here's my best.  1417739589_checkeredflagcomp1.thumb.jpg.809638ae15d4e7f542d6f7d1fd2fceb0.jpg

3:04.16 is what i can manage so far

 

Very predictable handling patter in the game; you just have to remember which turns you need to brake for and which you can power through.

 

I feel like the more i race this one; the more you really shouldn't have to brake at all?

nice try

you can also optimize your run with manual mode. this can improve speed at start up

 

good luck

These curves in the yellow squares are the curves where I find myself needing to apply the brake.  I can do everything else at full blast.  I experimented with the manual transmission and intentionally dropping gears, but that automatically de-accelerates you much more than needed to get through the turns with the brake, reducing the average speed and leading to a slower run.  So I guess doing a manual transmission is the best in order to have a faster accceleration in the beginning, but there is no other advantage as top speed is the same with automatic, and you will never want to go down a gear for the entire race (nor do you need to in order to do the curves).

hello

normally you can do curves number 1, 2 and 5 at full speed. it is a matter of position and anticipation. for number 3 and 4 you actually don t have to use the brake but only to release speed early enough and then re accelerate at the right time. i m trying to see which alternative is the fastest..

manual mode is only a benefit at start up to reach full speed some milliseconds earlier than auto mode. i have only tried the 4 speed manual mode.

good luck
