    My RSR nick is noorbeast.

    RSR is taking forever to connect for me, so I am yet to post a time but will do so soon. I have run an initial scrappy practice 5.25, so am sure I can get under 5.20 when I have time to come to grips with the f138.

    @Blame73 - Not got RSR installed, but plan on changing that this weekend. As others are finding, my Rig gets shaken around on the F1 cars, so I'll need to mod my Profile.. It's not "that" bad, but combined with the Rift, it takes some getting used too :)

    Oh.. Great time BTW @Blame73 - It's always the second part of the track that throws me off. I have the first half memorised (as you come off the long straight and hit the sharp right then the carousel, after that it's still a bit hazy... :)

    AND it all changes again in the Rift, as the markers I once used on screens are actually not as obvious on the rift as I can see more of the track and its undulation, so parts of the track I had memorised, are going off 3 screens, not what the rift shows me. Have to learn again basically. :D

    Nords is such a challenging track, with so many corners to memorise, and many parts of the track have some real gotchas, but that is what makes it so much fun irrespective of what car you are using.

    I finally got RSR to connect and got on the leader board, now I just need to find some time to push my time down a bit: http://www.radiators-champ.com/RSRL...controller_type=all&community=all&friends=all

    What I don't get yet is how the F138 is tweaked to get top speeds of 340+ at Nords.

    The Levante is really not my style, but I did give the F138 a run at Black Cat Country: http://www.radiators-champ.com/RSRL...controller_type=all&community=all&friends=all

    I made a few laps and, oooh maaaan, I can't drive that 'thing'. I wonder how it get in the game. Maybe Maserati forced Kunos into doing it. There even isn't in the forum's banner... enough said:rolleyes:

    I'll catch ya! :p
    About speed @noordschleife... I don't know. With mostly default setup I touched 305 Km/h, I think I could go down 15 clicks in rear aero

    5:22 and 332Km/h with less aero, but I just realized I always used SOFT tires, so I'm gonna try with Super Soft.
    See you later :cheers

    Throwing that Lavante S around that track made me feel like the captain in "The Perfect Storm", even the motion is soft and sluggish going fast :)

    I know this "boat" isn't for everyone, i'm probably just weird and like the feel of the FFB (as with almost all streetcars in AC)

    Your laptime with that boat is insane!

    I love streetcars in AC but I can't drive the Levante, nor I like doing it. Anyway it's a pretty fast giant, reaches 200 without any efforts.

    Tnx :)
    Only raised the tire pressure, gave it some more negative camber at the front and raised front toe to 8 (and TC off offcourse)

    I've seen the topic about that launcher, looks pretty nice indeed...Might give that a go too.

    I did the same with camber and toe, but tried lowering the pressure looking for some more grip but the boat then "floated", didn't try rising, I will. I also forgot to turn TC off... :roll

    The launcher is nice and loads and launches the game way much faster than the regular one does

    @noorbeast 1400+ Km on that track/car! You must be pretty well shaken mate!

    @GTHQ_koop I improved 5 seconds on the Levante, still 2.9 from you (I still have to understand how to make the right corner for the uphill. Pretty sure I lose a sec just there)

    Nice one :)

    A lot of time to win on that corner, make sure you're done steering and braking well before the turn and you can take it flat-out.
