Here we go again,

Over @ digitaltimeattack.proboards.com we're running our second Hot Lap Challenges for XB1. This is more of a sprint than a hot lap at the famous Nordschleife Circuit, specifically the stage 3 - point to point. Can you keep up the momentum in this challenge?

Below are the details if you want to get in on this.


HLC #2 - THE RACER'S CLUB MK1 ESCORT

You must be able to prove your Time.

CAR: Ford Escort MK1 RS1600.
TRACK: Nordschleife - Stage 3.
PAINT: You must use '#52 The Racer's Club' paint.
TUNING: Is Allowed

XBOX ONE TIMES
IMPORTANT - Registering your time
When submitting a time that is a PB then all you have to do is message me(ToOSk3tChY) here or on XBL and I will have a look at the PCARS Leaderboard or post here in the thread. It would help in this instance if you gave me your LB position but its not necessary.
When submitting a time that is not a PB all you have to do is pause the game in Time Trial mode and use XBOX One's 'Take a Screenshot(Y Button)' feature to record your time on-screen. Message me here or on XBL and I will check the activity feed, make sure the screenshot is shared before XBL messaging me.

PC AND PS4 TIMES
IMPORTANT - Registering your time
I will need to see a screenshot of some sort either from the leaderboard in Time Trial or if you have Paused the game in Time Trial. Without these I can not validate your time

This HLC ends at Midnight GMT on the 4th JULY 2015.

Cool. Me n kas have set times. Just working on a better setup next. Kas is on a 3.22 and me on a 3.26. That's the starting benchmark at least but I think this will do sub 3.15 with a good setup. LB updated tonight when I've had my hour or 2 on it :)

seems like I'm the only one on PC doing this...

3:17 first run. looking forward to your sub 3:15. must be possible

only set diff accel lock from 50 to 70% and slightly shorter final gear ratio. (didn't know the straight was included...)

Let me get into the teens first lol ;P nice time btw

EDIT: 3.19. I don't think I'll be doing a sub 15 but maybe your 17. Plenty of time to go yet though

All prepared to spend the evening on this TT mate, but for some reason I can't change gears on my TX in this car. Tried a few times and restarted, but no luck. Can only gear down to neutral and then nothing more. Will try another track and see if I can find the problem.

Hi mate. Tried everything with the Escort, but no luck - gears still not changing. I tried other cars on the track and the Escort on other tracks and it seems the problem lies with the car - doesnt change gears on any track. All other cars are fine though.

Seems like I have to wait for your next TT. See you then.

Cheers and thanks for running this.

Just tried this out of interest. Did 3 completed runs/"laps" and best was 3.14.723 & lap was far from perfect, missed gears few times and other minor mistakes aswell. Im sure if some of the fast guys really would commit to this, we would be looking times around 3.12. Afterall as said my lap was quite messy & used default setup apart from ride height and softened front arb.

You not supposed to use the Formula A Joni. They use the Ford Escort.

Ok. Just joking. ;) 3:14.7 sure is a great lap. Dying to give it a go too, but my Ford Escort dont want to run. Gears remain stucked.

Heh, well youll see in hour or so how "great" the lap actually was, recorded the run & is uploading atm. But seriously it was quite messed up at places, easy 1-2s to be shaved off just by better driving.

E: Here is the capture.
