    In Race 1 the top 3 established their supremacy thanks to a Vapid Blade... but in Race 2 another Blade came into play... @Kobi Blade debuted on Time Trials by demolishing the wall of 0.59 seconds that kept everybody in line. Most of the race was dominated by the DDD (Danish Dynamic Duo) @Magic_bean and @Kennie22 as well as @Data1B4, but they couldn't to do anything when Kobi came like a lightning ray beating those times to the ground. At the final stages of the race the still skeptical @Stellated came trying to beat the new challenger with no success, settling with the 2nd place.

    In spite of being knocked out of the podium @Data1B4 rescued his glory by establishing an amazing race time and taking the 1st bonus prize home, but @Magic_bean and @Jamesmorris3217 didn't stand behind and took the 2 remaining prizes, achieving a total Race Time podium for the PS4 Team.

    Please read
    One of the best things of Time Trials is that we can all be part of it , no matter the platform, and that bring us together as a group. That's why we encourage you to actively participate in the discussion here in the forum:

    Do you have a question? Don't be shy and post it!
    Are you frustrated with that damned corner that makes you lose precious time? Tell us! We may help you out (or maybe not... maybe i'm winning and i don't want tell my secrets).
    You managed to make a fantastic lap and you got 1st? Brag about it so we can insult you (with the caring love of a fellow crewmate).
    As tradition dictates, @Kennie22 and @Data1B4 are making impossible times? You can trash talk about them, but always with respect.

    The idea here is to have fun and meet our crewmates a little better, we can compete with each other, tease each other, help each other, but at the end... we are only playing. Good luck guys and thanks for participate!

    In all honesty I don't think the fastest is the best for this track due to oversteer problems, I suggest using Casco (seems the best option).

    God I love that movie.

    Gonna test the Casco as suggested but first I'd have to equip it with a turbo (note to self).

    I'm anxious for this weekend to see what times the TOP will have by then. Despise my time so far, I'm still holding a card or two to play this weekend if needed (I started to quickly with all the anxiety, slowing the pace for now).

    I'll be honest, I tried with Casco once and I didn't like how slow it was compared to Turismo Classic.

    My suggestion towards the Casco was due to the oversteer issues the Turismo Classic has, some people already complained about it on Discord yesterday.

    If you can tame the Turismo Classic and avoid oversteer it is the best option, but then again we all doing this for fun and the Casco is a good car overall (easier to drive) despise the lower top speed.

    I already figured most of my racing line and made a "good" time while test driving, I'm just waiting for the leaderboards and weekend to see how far I have to push now.

    We still have time to break the 01:52 wall, I expect some of the others to go around 01:52.25~01:52.80 as well.

    Please tell me you are running 60 fps and more. Because if you were on ps4 I would have smoked you.
    Just kidding. Relax.
    Great lap my friend!
