It will come to you more as you do it. But I don't think I was doing much better. I don't have my times with me right now.

this was also me alone on the track chasing a ghost car.

i bought a car and set it up like your test car, it only has 640hp how is the best way to break it in ?

i have my b-spec running it as i type

looking forward to quicker lap times

I usually drive mine myself to break them in... that way you get to know the car better.  it takes less effort to control situations that occur when you know it like the back of your hand.

what track were those times for? Nevermind, you were probably talking about Daytona RC.  I'm going to build a new car and do some testing.  I'll post here with a fast lap time.

I just built my car and it's not fully broken-in. 679hp currently.  I dropped in most of my settings fro the 2011 SCREAM car and I was able to get a 1:45.046 without much tweaking.  t his was in a lounge practice run no draft.

no way dude!  don't be discouraged.  we have a long time till race day and as snake_eyes said, keep at it your times will come down some.

and just because you think you won't win or be close to winning, doesn't mean you should stay home, by any means.  our type of racer is just clean and courteous.  not necessarily fast.

I know how you feel, though, as I sometimes get discouraged by much faster racers than me.

It's safe to say that I could get down into the low 1:44s at some point.  The incredibly fast guys out there could probably be around 1:42 or even lower.  I know it's hard to imagine, but I've seen some crazy stuff.

also, Daytona RC is the type of track where there are little quircks here and there.  The "Descent" as I call it, turn 1, is one of those areas where you can pull off an awesome deceleration and staying well above what you would naturally call a safe speed.

another is the wide right-turn in the infield.  you start out really wide and not braking fully, then as you turn-in with some good speed retained, you continue to brake some as you tighten the turn and shoot out of it simultaneously.
