    Me racing my own ghost at Road America

    Beat myself by 1/10th

    Also I know I turn in too early on some corners then have to flatten out and turn in again to finish the turn, slowing me down.

    Still any other tips on how to go faster would be great. Trying go get to Leaderboard #3 at a 2:06

    Video is cockpit, TV replay, and replay from the ghost car POV.

    I just shaved 3 tenths off my best by softening slow rebounds. Helped with stability on corner exits.

    [Edit] Interesting use of first gear. I usually take those corners a gear higher but i haven't messed around with the gearing at all.

    Did you soften the front or rear rebound?

    I feel I should take the corner after the corvette bridge and the one before the carrousel in 2nd, but have difficulty slowing down enough with out the extra downshift.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Rear only.

    Turn 6 (after Corvette bridge) is the hardest part of the circuit for me and probably where I lose the most time. I always take it in 2nd but my setup causes bigtime understeer so I end up slowing down more than I ought to.

    I find "Canada Corner" I think it is called the toughest... at the end of the super long straight... so hard to go through there carrying speed, not losing the rear, and not going so wide you bounce off the curbing and oversteer into the tyre wall on the right of the track.

    I tried going round turn 6 in 2nd... but I run 0 front wing. Can't do it. Turning on front wing makes it possible, but I lose too much time down the straights.

    Trail braking helps to hit the apex at Canada Corner..but yeah, if you don't scrub off enough speed you risk losing the lap...and it's such a long lap too. That's why at that point, I don't fool around with late braking. Slow in, fast out.

    I won't be hotlapping this circuit with the AM for a while. I was working out a setup for Watkins Glen and accidentally hit save all and overwrote the one I had for RA.

    Well I got back up into fourth place. It was difficult and to be honest I think I just got lucky and pulled out a good lap. I think its time I pick up a different car track combination myself.

    Thanks for the tips and the chat.
