    Seasonal Events chat & tips

    May as well have their own thread.

    I'm liking the GT86 at Trial Mountain myself, got to 1'36.545 so far, 2229th in the rankings.
    I tried tuning the suspension myself, but was much better just using the fixed racing soft kit.
    Full weight reduction, all 6 gear ratios closed right up.

    Rocket at Suzuka - 2'10.599

    Quite fun - to start with I was overdriving the car, sliding it around like an FR, but I calmed down and drove it within it's slip 'window', and it became pretty sweet.
    I just added power to 590pp, fixed the gearing, upgraded brakes and clutch, but left the suspension alone. I may try suspension tuning next.

    BTW, for the Lancer at Chamonix, the EVO VIII RS '03 is apparently the car to use - way more grip than the Evo III I started out with. 1'19.5xx

    Doing the Tii on Madrid, and after 2 hours of fighting to get gold I watched the leader. Noticed the use of skid recovery force, turned mine on, and proceeded to cut 2 seconds off in 2 laps. Its an entire different physics engine.

    Skid recovery force? Is it more than just an advanced stability control?
    Get that weak shit off my track

    Apparently. I was consistently braking 30-40meters deeper than I had been. I could get on throttle sooner and faster also.

    Nods, it's like nothing that could be implemented in reality.

    I never use it, I don't mind how many people go faster than me with 'drift physics' aka SRF, I'm happy to gold them with 'real' physics.

    Yeah. It's crazy different. I should pull out the wheel and see the difference in feeling.

    I obviously haven't played this in forever (I simply got bored ) but I seem to remember that many of the seasonal events (like the M4 for instance), you couldn't turn that off (or maybe it was just the regular TC) even if you wanted to. Perhaps they changed that in a update?
